A quick aside...

The cheese was using it's smart phone this morning, checking it's favorite news site, BBC NEWS. It's a great news site and featured these top stories this morning: Irish unveil tough recovery/Police hold back student protest/Obama 'not thinking about Palin'.

While the Obama lead seemed a little crazy — after all Korea was the main focus of the press conference (and it seems media is working overtime to set up the 'Palin vs Obama' rivalry) the cheese was really amused by the 'most popular' list at the bottom of the site. With stories about Somali pirates, mine disasters, Portugal strikes, African urban growth, and "Early retirement 'good for our mental health' what was the most read?

At the time the cheese was reading it was "Woman stuck in bathroom for weeks."

No need for a punchline here....

Have a good holiday

The Cheese has a quote about negotiations:
Let every eye negotiate for itself and trust no agent. — Shakespeare

Happy Thanksgiving all. I hope you have a wonderful holiday. Cheese will be off this week for a rare vacation and will return next Monday on it's regular schedule. See you next week.

Oh boy. No weekend for that mouse. And the cheese came up with a quote:

"Prediction is very difficult, especially if it's about the future."
— Niels Bohr

And the cheese reminds me that Mr. Bohr also said "There are some things so serious you have to laugh at them. " So true, so true.

Hope you all have a great weekend
