Thought for the day:

Marijuana: not a leaf left unstoned.

I have just finished a new icon set!
When is a dock not a dock?... when it is the new Dragon Tongue Transparent Icon Dock!

Resexcellence has just been shut down! ... Their new address for now is here. Apparently there was a copyright issue over a Metallica image. (I wonder if I can type their name without them shutting me down?)
Resexcellence are now hosted at The Principality of Sealand... the smallest country in the world, I think.

Not only have ResExcellence had all this bad luck... but there is more...

This morning at about 1.30am, I was woken by a car backing into a deep ditch across the road from my house. I went out to see a set of headlights pointing up to the sky, and a young, short, drunk guy standing there, almost saying, " canyugivusapush?"
I managed to persuade him eventually to head off home with his mates who arrived soon after.I may show pic of the car soon, LOL.

Last week when Mir fell from the sky, I was watching the News on TV when they said,"Mir has just crash landed somewhere unknown!" At that very moment, I stuck my head out the door to look north... and was very surprised to see an intense light on the horizon, and a smoke column pouring up and across to the left!
The glow was actually the sun, and I guess the smoke was a fire somewhere... but it was so coincidental, that I ended up taking a picture of that also.
I might even show you... it looked pretty impressive.
