The cycling is still going well. Another busy day at work. Problems with the other mail server this morning, plus an issue with the phones in Glasgow (thanks to the firewall again!). Lots going on with the imminent Boston Office too.

Lunched with Rosie at the Riviera on Gabriel’s Wharf. She didn’t have a lot to report; working hard trying to tie-up all the loose ends before she leaves next month. She’s trying to go ‘cold turkey’ on contact with Matt. Although I think it’s probably the right move, I’m not really sure it’s going to work out as there’s clearly a strong attraction there.

Apart from that I’ve been pitching-in on a few comment threads on Facebook discussing Israel’s current incursion in Gaza. There always seem to be so many civilian casualties every time Israeli troops report they’ve returned the fire of militants and Israel and its supporters think nothing of it. In any other conflict there would be cries of War Crime! Humans can be such hypocritical creatures when it suits them.

On a lighter note, the BBC reports that the British Humanist Society’s advert telling people, “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and start enjoying life,” has (unsurprisingly!) drawn complaint from Christian Voice. The thing that made me smile though was the comment at the end of the article about the Advertising Standards Authority having to rule on the probability of God’s existence. That will be one to watch!
