Tony Blair appears on The Late Show at RTE TV studios in Dublin

Shoes and eggs have been pelted at Tony Blair as he attended his first book signing in the Irish Republic.

The missiles, which were thrown by anti-war protesters, did not hit the former prime minister as he arrived at a bookshop in Dublin.

Activists clashed with Gardai as they tried to push down a security barrier outside the Eason store on O'Connell Street.

Oil all gone! Bippity boppity boo.

Has anyone noticed how the 'Oil spill' just vanished from mainstream media? Crisis over. Look this way to ring number three, folks, where we have Glenn Beck performing his high wire act on a teabag string.

I do not think for a nanosecond that the absence of coverage of the continuing effects of the BP oil spill is accidental. The ghastly consequences of the toxic soup in the Gulf is just beginning to be uncovered.

Though the mainstream media has found another side show to preoccupy Americans, people who live in the South continue to present their evidence on the net, through Youtube, local newspapers, radio shows, blogs and newsites.

Following here is a list of scores of links which I keep, as of today, updated presenting information and real experiences conveniently omitted from mainstream media menus. For links prior to September 1, 2010, see here.

Who are the terrorists again, please?

It's getting harder and harder to tell who is a terrorist. Apparently, the American government is concerned with being perceived as a terrorist government!

I can well see their concern: after relabelling every independence battle in the world as terrorist activity, present and past; after causing more than a million unnecessary deaths and untold suffering in Iraq and Afghanistan - they should be worried.


All blogs are really just small snapshots of a person's mind, heart and soul as they evolve together through life....

Small bits of the thread of life we weave together into the fabric of ourselves, in the hope we will make sense of our existence, individual and collective.

On this page, is the cloak I have fashioned from my fabric to warm myself in a universe which often makes little sense.

Inside my cloak, it is warm enough to face the blistering cold winds of the insane world in which I find myself.

If you find some a bit of 'the good stuff' here, it has been my pleasure.
