For all the talk about how Sea Shepherd endangers life and limb of whalers, sealers, poachers, and even supposedly our own crew, the fact is that in 33 years of operations not a single Sea Shepherd crewmember has been killed or seriously injured.

The Mediterranean diet, already thought to protect against heart disease and cancer, may also help to prevent depression, Spanish researchers say. They found depression was more than 30% less likely to develop in people who followed a diet high in

Over her lifetime, it has been scientifically calculated, a woman spends 16 months crying. What is the matter with us? Why are we always sobbing? The world isn't so bad. It has butterflies, beans on toast and cribbage. There are kiwi fruits...

Well, seen Brüno and I LOVED it! It's incredibly funny, even more hilarious than Borat. I've never laughed as much at anything, and certainly not any movie. I laughed till my stomach hurt. It's incredible and Sacha Baron Cohen's comic timing and his sheer physical comedy is incredible. That man's a genius! And brave, too... Some of those situations he got into could have truly gotten him killed or at least seriously injured.

There are so many verbal jokes, so much slapstick, unbelievably funny gags that there's not one boring moment... I really did laugh all through it and just simply enjoyed it immensely. This man who was born into a Orthodox Jew family and went on to Cambridge to study history is probably the most talented and the most courageous comedian ever lived. Five stars, and this will always be one of my favorite movies. I kept on starting to laugh on my way home from the cinema, too, remembering some of the jokes, and got some very strange looks. I especially remembered the Harrison Ford interview and the dance before it...

Caveat lector: This movie's definitely not for everyone and it may offend some people, seriously. But I truly loved it and have never laughed as much in my whole life.

Cat owners may have suspected as much, but it seems our feline friends have found a way to manipulate us humans. Researchers at the University of Sussex have discovered that cats use a "soliciting purr" to overpower their owners and garner attention

Love may mean nothing in tennis, but off the courts, McEnroe's love for animals means a lot to him. Recently, McEnroe, who has a mixed-breed pooch named Lulu, took time out from tennis to promote spaying and neutering in a new advertisement for PETA.

Well, back from a Regulars' Night at my favorite coffee bar. Got an invite for myself and a friend and while the first friend I invited got a dreadful allergic reaction today (she doesn't know from what but she's still sneezing), the other one was all rearing to go. Which was good as we had a fabulous night of free white wine, salad, olives (oh I love olives, black and green both), watermelon, crusty fresh bread and red onions. And mojitos. I really enjoyed it all. We dicussed politics, movies, books, all things interesting and I finally feel like I was on a vacation... I'd still rather work but unfortunately, the autumn term only commences in the middle of August. Oh well.


Anyhow, last night I saw a truly amazing movie, Gone Baby Gone, which is based on a brilliant novel by one of my all time favorite authors, Dennis Lehane. His books are simply wonderful, well-crafted and intelligent... it's no wonder that Eastwood's Mystic River and Marty's Shutter Island are also based on ones. I really loved the film, the gritty and real feel it had, the smartness and the honesty. It felt like real Boston. (I've lived close by for one summer.) Casey Affleck truly shines in this movie directed by his older brother Ben.


I must admit that one of the reasons I love Casey is that he's a vegan and an avid advocate for the animal rights... Here's a really wonderful interview




He loves cats, too. Go Casey!! There are still some influential vegans in Hollywood, even though Casey's brother-in-law has started a career in music... There's Tobey Maguire, Daryl Hannah, Woody Harrelson, Jason Schwartzman, Alicia Silverstone, James Cromwell, and many more... James Cromwell turned vegan when filming Babe.


In any case, a wonderful and inspiring day. Casey Affleck will go far... I wish lots of luck to him and all the other vegan actors. And will go and see every one of their films.

Today, woke up to brilliant sunshine and the purr of my tortoiseshell cat Ramona. Been drinking strawberry coffee, and made a lovely sandwich of fullgrain bread, hummus, tomatoes and cucumber, and some rucola. An awesome way to start the day.


I'll be going to the library again today -- have some dvds and books I reserved waiting for me there. I'm thinking of freeing some books into the wild en route... Bookcrossing is such a great pastime, and it's fun for people to try and catch the novels. Of course there are several books I truly love and wouldn't ever let roam the streets, but quite a few just gather dust and would enjoy being read by someone, I'm sure.


I got some great news yesterday, at the RA clinic... My RA appears to have healed miraculously! At the same time that I started my vegan diet last year, I also stopped taking my medicines... And the vegan lifestyle has worked wonders on me. I'm cured! The doctor said there was of course no way of being sure but it does appear that I am in fact healed of what was supposed to be a chronic illness.


So, that calls for a celebration... I'll toast to the summer and sunshine with a glass of sparkling wine.
