A bit late today, I overslept, ignored the alarm and was woken by the cat (I love my pussy) biting my nose, which she obviously thought was a sausage (she loves sausages); I have managed to stem the blood loss and with plaster on nose will attempt to write something vaguely intelligent-ish.

Jade Goody prepares for wedding and good luck to the girl. I hope she has the best day of her very short life, she has shown courage and strength, and deserves a bit of happiness.

Children out late 'unacceptable' this is from BBC News, it seems that Home Secretary Jacqui Smith says it is unacceptable for parents not to know what their children are up to at night.

She was speaking after police in 27 council areas in England picked up and returned 120 youngsters late on Friday.

Police spotted scores of teenagers who were drunk, abusing drugs or had nowhere to stay.

They encountered large groups behaving anti-socially, and children being out far too late without an adult.

Ms Smith said Operation Staysafe had highlighted the role parents must play to alleviate the problems.

Haven’t we been saying this for years? I am sure that Labour is in a different time line to the rest of us.

From Ananova- A church school teacher asked a class of ten-year-olds to write down the rudest words they know.

Parents were horrified when their children returned home with exercise books littered with expletives.

Teacher Fred Laband asked pupils to write a list of hurtful words commonly levelled at the victims of bullying and classify them from 'really upsetting' to 'harmless'.

They came up with obscenities including four letter words, reports the Daily Mail.

Many of the terms were displayed on a board in front of the class at Great and Little Shelford Church of England Primary in Great Shelford, near Cambridge.

In a letter to parents, headmistress Alison Evans said: "On reflection, it has been agreed that it was inappropriate to record these words in writing and the pages have been removed (from exercise books)."

Alastair MacGregor, chairman of the governors, said: "We deeply regret this happened. We are investigating what happened, and are taking appropriate disciplinary action, but I cannot comment on what."

Let’s hope that the teacher’s resignation note doesn’t say “F**K OFF”

Also from Ananova - DVD thief went back for remote a thief in China was caught when he returned to the scene of his crime to collect the remote control for the DVD player he had stolen earlier. But the thief was allowed to go free - when police officers ruled the £100 DVD player was not valuable enough for them to press charges.

And we think we have troubles!

And finally from Ananova - Teen thief picks on wrong pensioner a thief picked on the wrong victim when she tried to run off with the handbag of a former championship sprinter.

The schoolgirl was surprised to discover her victim still had a turn of pace - at the age of 72.
Jean Hirst had allowed three teenage girls into her car to help with directions after getting lost in Long Eaton, Derbyshire.
Mrs Hirst, from Mansfield, said: "Suddenly I felt 18 again. The adrenaline just kicked in and I seemed to turn back the years.

"She had a head start but I covered 70 yards in about 15 seconds and was within two strides of her when she looked over her shoulder and saw me.

"She probably thought I was an easy target but she shouldn't have judged a book by its cover. The look on her face was one of sheer amazement and she just threw my bag aside."

Mrs Hirst stopped and picked up the bag which she said contained her "whole life", including purse, keys and address book.

A nice bit of “grey” justice, but just a hint don’t let people you don’t know into your car or your house.

In the Halls of Justice, the only justice is in the halls.” Lenny Bruce
