There are still some 'celebrities' who want to hang out with Mr Tony....

Over at the Number 10 site, it names some of the slebs lobbying for the toe-curlingly named Global Cool.

Among those named by Number 10 are Stephen Fry, KT Tunstall, Josh Hartnett, Brian May, Anita Dobson and Perry Farrell. Not exactly super A-list, are they? Global Cool itself names Alan Yentob of the BBC as being in attendance, which Number 10 does not. Not cool enough, eh Alan?

Blogger problems
I have had some problems reported on comment posting, and cannot access comment threads in the archives or at the start of this month. If anyone else is having problems, please e-mail me. I'm shaking the blogger tree, but do not anticipate a speedy response.

It looks to be a blogger wide problem, so if anyone cannot post on the relevant thread, feel free to post on one that will accept it.

It's all coming up in SPANISH .... why? I never requested Spanish. I don't think this company is very technically ept.

What is so stupid is, there are probably at least 10m Brit expats all over the world in non-English speaking countries, and we all follow British news. I don't like my computer being overridden by some twitty little nerd in a blogging company.

Sometimes it is like swimming through glue dealing with blogger....

My apologies.

Finally !!

I am having endless trouble , my occasional blog is down to minimum functions and there is noone to ask about it .
"twitty little nerd" , nice phrase Verity. I should think you would be amusing company in what we call here a pub. I daresay its all tequila and nachos around your manor. I wonder how Blair is going to cope with opprobrium attenuated by irrelevance. Bruno cracked , Heath went doolally ..one must hope .I already have to be reminded he is still technically the Prime minister. I want him to hang on , it gets worse and worse for Broon.

Mr. C -

Goodness but blogger is being more than unusually unco-operative today. It's not only this site but His Gracefulness Archbishop Cranmer's as well. But one does what one can, soldiers on, fights the good fight, tally-ho, toodle-pip and all that.

Anyway. Thank you for the link to the estimable cool people. It was most informative. I had not known before visiting their site that the British Museum was launched only two days ago. I was quite sure it was longer ago than that. Still, they have the blessing and support of the Prime Minister, so they are undoubtedly correct in their claims.

I believe I shall go lie down now. Battling with blogger has rather done me in a bit.

Here is the error message I receive:
Lo sentimos, pero no hemos podido llevar a cabo tu petición and then, in direction which defies logic, it then goes on to give the rest of the error message in English.

What. is. the. bloody. point?

Newmania - No tequila, thanks! I am a whisky girl. I like nachos, though.

Ironically enough I posted a (hopefully helpful) comment about Verity's Spanish issues on the "A Curious Email" thread.

Thought I'd check back today to see if there was a reply from either you or her...but can't access that comments section due to this new problem.

Oh, guess what! It's all coming up in English now! Hooray!

Bloomin' typical, Verity. The moment I try to do helpful stuff then everything sorts itself out on its own.

If only I'd been a doctor....

Maybe it was just el fantasma en la máquina...

Tal vez.

Thanks anyway, Geoff. I appreciate it.

Geoff - the Spanish is back! Any way I can beat this thing?
