Happy 60th Birthday to the UN

Today the United Nations turned 60.

Whilst there have been some criticisms of the international agency, all its good work far outweighs the negative aspects.

Where would the world be today if the UN had not been set up in the first place? That is a very good question.

In other recent anniversaries:

the Eurovision Song Contest celebrated its 50th (they must calculate it differently as it began in 1956) by selecting the best Eurovision Song ever. The winner was ABBA's Waterloo. See CNN article;

the 'alumni' of all the Friday the 13th horror flicks celebrated the 25th anniversary of the first film. There is talk of another one which pits Jason Voorhees and his hockey mask against Michael Myers (Halloween) and against Freddy Krueger (Nightmare on Elm Street). See MSNBC article.

(Why stop at Jason vs Freddy vs Michael Myers? Why not include the aliens from Alien and Predator as well? While they're at it, they can put them all on that island with the dinosaurs from Jurassic Park!)

*As always, please check out Cooper and Camilla who always have interesting things to say.


After such a wonderful weekend with lots of lap time watching horror movies, I had to nap by myself on the couch and my daybed as it was Monday and my human had to go to work.

My human came back a bit earlier this evening. He caught the bus instead of leaving at his usual time and walking. If he had done that, he would have been caught in a very heavy thunderstorm. He might have not been able to see because the rain was so heavy and slipped on the road and banged his head and died from brain damage, or died by being hit by a car, or died by being hit by lightning. My telepathic warning must have worked.

Thankfully Numb3rs is on TV tonight, so I will get my weekly long brushing of my fur.

Meow meow! And the good thing is that it doesn't take me any more time than usual (under 30 minutes)!
