The grimmest programme on TV at the moment is "80's Mania" on ITV - Leslie "Internet" Grantham (ugh) and Anita "Angie/Mrs Brian May" Dobson are presenting. Actually, Anita Dobson is doing a sterling job but Grantham appears to think he's in character.

God this is terrible. 10 minutes of this is too much.

Tonight is the last Angel episode in the UK (sob), but did you know that Mercedes McNab, who plays Harmony, happens to be the daughter of Arsenal Double winner Bob McNab. Hurrah!

VoteMatch Europe 2004

Blimey - I don't blog for ages and then lots of the same day... Just like buses!

OK, following on from the theme of D-Day and the sacrifices people made on that day, as well as throughout the war, it's really important not to waste your vote. Our grandparents and parents fought to allow us to have the choice of who we elect to represent us.

It's the European Elections next week and there are a lot of choices on the huge (2ft!) ballot paper.

The site link above is non-party biased and lets you enter in a number of preferences in response to a questionnaire, then ranks the parties with the closest interests to your own, down to the ones with the least.

Whatever your political persuasion, make sure you get to the polling station and register your choice. You may think that 1 person doesn't make a difference, but every vote counts and in a close marginal seat the winner can hinge on a handful of people.

Today is the 60th anniversary of D-Day. With all the unjust wars going on in the world today, it's easy for younger generations like me to forget or ignore just how important D-Day, and the whole spirit of the Allies was during WWII. The brave people of many nations died to prevent a genuine evil taking over the world. It really was a possibility if people hadn't stood up to the Nazis.

CNN is presently showing a programme on the Polish Resistence forces battling in Warsaw just after D-Day took place. You can find the related article here.

When we start to forget what racism can do, Chechnya, Kosovo and Rwanda happen.

Don't let that happen.

If you're interested in preventing and stopping racism, here are some good sites to start with:

Crosspoint
European Commission against Racism
CARF (Campaign against Racism & Facism)

Finally, here is a British site about D-Day itself.

I know, I know, I haven't blogged for ages... even though I now have the Google toolbar allowing me "1 click blog action" For the millions of you that I'm sure hang on my every word, I can only apologise.

Hopefully now normal service will be resumed. :)
