"Australia has also offered $4 million to secure the future of the tiny, cyclone-ravaged island of Niue."
Niue! That weird tiny little island.
quote from this article about the PIF
"He [Prime Minister John Howard] also announced a $4 million contribution to a Niue Trust Fund to provide long-term stability for Niue. The island was devastated by cyclone Heta in January.
Niue Premier Young Vivian said he was absolutely delighted with the contribution.
"It gives my people confidence that we will have our little nation in about 2000 years' time," he said. "The contribution is a new beginning for Niue."

The Indians and Pakistanis are discussing a ceasefire on a glacier that's the world's highest battleground.

STONELEIGH (Reuters) - Nigel Roder has beaten six rivals by public acclaim to become England's first official jester for more than 350 years, succeeding Muckle John who lost his job when King Charles 1 was beheaded in 1649.

The baby is silly. As soon as she sees me- BOOM! She's up and running to the kitchen!

I watched an interesting show on the History Channel. Modern Marvels: Distilleries.
"From water and grain...to mash...still...vat...barrel and bottle--the distilling of alcoholic spirits is a big business and near-sacred religion. Its acolytes eye the color, swirl the glass, inhale the bouquet, sip, then ponder their ambrosia. What's your pleasure? Bourbon, Scotch, Rum, Gin, Vodka, or Tequila? We trace the history of distilling from the one-man/one-still tradition to the Voldstead Act of 1920 that devastated American distilleries to the mega-sales and high-volume distillery of today."

been playing a little helicopter game.
