These are the links that have made me smile recently. Enjoy!

We had forgotten hadn’t we? We women of the internet are so woman-centric, so busy fighting our own battles, this then is a timely reminder to look at the man…

Having recently acquired the entire Virago collection of these delightful books, I read this essay with delight.

We Should All Hate the Passive-Aggressive Martyrdom of “Me Time

And finally this.
The reason why I worship Russell Brand. And worry for him. And respect his passion and incredible, articulate, daring  voice.


  1. Thanks for the links today Alison…love them. And Brand is more than a little troubled. I think he’s nuts but I’m a conservative so that how I roll. I’m glad he’s got great people like you to love him.

  2. Tania says:

    I have much regard for Russell Brand after seeing some recent interviews he’s done.
    Thanks for the links.

  3. Judi Storm says:

    Beautifully articulate. Mr. Brand is speaking of truths not only on your side of the world but mine as well. He is pretty spot on. I’m not for socialism, if that is what he’s for. However more people need to stand up and speak out against the problems in our world. Thanks for the link.

  4. Annmarie says:

    I am not a Russell Brand fan generally, but I do agree with him on this. Here in the U.S., where corporations were given the same rights as people by our courts, and not one of our politicians seems to think that that is wrong, it does make me wonder about the purpose of voting, and I’m a regular Yankee Doodle do or dye type.

  5. Annmarie says:

    As for the sauerkraut (which I do love), it is not the gut-to-brains that influences most people, its the guts-to-gas that does. I wonder if Beano counteracts all that good bacteria? It doesn’t say, but when talking about fermented foods, it really should. Really. Rrreeeeealy!
