First of all, a huge thank you to everyone who left a comment on yesterday’s post.  You have given us loads to work with, which is exactly what we need.

We aim to re-launch the website in September; I will update you when it happens so you can see the fruits of your labour.

I have the Number 1 readers in the blogosphere, and that’s a fact!

Secondly, if you happen to be in the London area this week, you can visit the Globe Theatre for £2.50!  I have lifted this from the Arts Council website because I think it should be shared:

Come and support Latin American theatre at Shakespeare’s Globe!

“Globe to Globe” is the innovative, ground breaking and jaw droppingly ambitious global theatre festival presenting all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays in 37 different languages!

Each day a new theatre company from around the world presents one of Shakespeare’s classics on the stage of Shakespeare’s Globe, Southbank. Not only is it hectic, innovative and brilliant fun but it is a truly unique opportunity to see the best of the world’s theatre and celebrate theatre and language in all its diversity. Anyone interested in theatre should come and see what the world is making. Anyone interested in language and global community should come and see what the world is saying.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday we have “Henry IV Part 1 and 2” from Mexico and Argentina and we are making incredible ticket offers to see both these productions! Quote ‘PCDYARD241’ to get two tickets for £5, and get the best seats in the house for £10 for the Tuesday matinee by quoting “PCDMAT10”.

We have more to come this week from the Belarus Free Theatre, the National Theatre of Armenia, Georgia and Brazil. Watch this space:

It’s part of the Olympic celebrations and a fabulous opportunity.  How I wish I lived nearer.  If you do go, please blog about it and I’ll try not to hate you.

Third on the agenda: I think school is a little more dangerous than it used to be, if this Manchester Realcycle request is anything to go by:

WANTED: Human Skull

Hi!  My son is in need of a human skull for an art project at college.  It can be real or artificial !  Can collect at your convenience.  Thank you.

I’m tempted to give her the Hub’s but he claims he’s still using it.

And lastly, an event so rare, my flabber was ghasted: I logged on to my site stats and there was a perfect number.  It’s the first time in [hang on; let me check.  I can’t remember how long I’ve been at this] three years of blogging that I have found a perfect number on my stats page, so I had to share it.  Has it ever happened to you?

And you made it happen.  Thank you!

Three drunks are standing on top of the Empire State Building. The first one says to the other two, “You know, it’s a funny thing about these wind currents. A person could jump off of this building right now and not even hit the ground; the wind would carry him right back up to the top of the building!”

The second drunk says, “You’re crazy!”

The first drunk says, “I’m serious! Watch!” The first drunk jumps off the building, and the wind carries him right back up to the top!

The second drunk says, “Let me try!” He leaps off the building and promptly falls to the street below, landing with a hideous SPLAT!

The first drunk smiles, clearly amused. The third drunk looks at him and says, “You know, Superman, you can be a real jerk when you’re drunk!”
