T he above was part of a banner I drew for the old website. There were several pages, for instance 'Eddie Campbell's Corner' which had the title and then me over on the right standing in a corner like the class dunce or the guy from The Blair Witch Project, and there was 'Eddie Campbell's Shout' in which ye host recommended a beer or wine, a cd and a good book, with a piccy of him with his mouth open wide shouting. You may be able to still find that stuff by clicking 'wayback' in the sidebar. The above was a banner that was never used; it was just 'Press'. The web monkey, or Internet Simian as he called himself recently in comments, was going to drop in all our reviews and write-ups as they appeared, but it rankled with him to have to boost my ego on a regular basis. And the wee sketch to the right of the banner had me selling the news. Hold up, it's the phone...
ah, it's my young pal smee
"hey, 's me. What 's 'Extra' all about then."
Well, you know, that's from the heyday of printed news. If they had to update the front page halfway through the morning they called it an 'extra' edition. Some days in the big cities you'd get four or five changes on the front page... in fact I think I saw one happen not all that long ago... maybe the twin towers... it struck me as most unusual in these times.."
"'Why couldn't they just click the 'refresh' button?"
"Well, uh, ... maybe they ran out of buttons. Anyway, look I have work to do. Thanks for roning."'s the phone again..
""s me once more. hey what's 'roning'?"
That's when some boob phones you witha dumb question or information you didn't really need. Just click on that label underneath here for the whole history. And thanks again".
World's longest hangover: When a 37-year old man walked into a hospital emergency room in Glasgow, Scotland last October complaining of "wavy" vision and a non-stop headache that had lasted four weeks, doctors were at first stumped, the British journal The Lancet reported today.

That makes me remember when our pub team striker got a hat-trick, and we couldn't work out whether it should be "Harry hammers hat-trick" or "Armstrong 'ammers 'at-trick".
