I can't even be bothered to find a facepalm image.

The success or failure of your deeds does not add up to the sum of your life. Your spirit cannot be weighed. Judge yourself by the intention of your actions and by the strength you faced the challenges that have stood in your way.

The people closest to you have been trying to tell you that you have made a difference. That you did change things for the better. The Universe is vast and we are so small. There is really only one thing that we can ever truly control - whether we are good or evil.


The political triumph of the American Right has been to advance relentlessly the economic interests of the country's richest people, while emphasising a swath of moral, social and foreign policy issues that motivate and certainly distract middle-class and poor voters.

They had an advert where they say that it is a slow burning spread or something, which led me to believe that it was healthy.

Bugger. I have bought Nutella between January 1, 2008 and February 3, 2012 but not IN CALIFORNIA. :(

Fantastic. I was temped to write to the ASA when I saw their last advert. Images of healthy looking children, making a point that it was made with skimmed milk, no mention of sugar content. Yes, I know we all know what's in it, but it's that subliminal 'healthiness' in the adverts of junk food I can't stand. McDonalds talking about 'active lifestyles' as if that's something that will counter the calorie busting content for the majority of people.

And I tell you we have learned from past mistakes.
Just as you cannot spend your way out of recession, you cannot, in a global economy, simply spend your way through recovery either.

(Gordon Brown, Labour Party Annual Conference, 29 September 1997)

So, housing affordability is better than it has ever been, but no-one can take advantage of this because they can't afford the houses. I see.

Of course it's healthy. Quite a bit of exercise involved if you eat it with a spoon, and of course doing without the bread saves a lot of calories.

It is healthy, if you are starving.

Amazing. But my first thought was it must be in the USA. And indeed it was.

Just Wednesday night I was sitting at my kitchen table smearing Nutella on grapes and congratulating myself on a relatively healthy snack
