My thoughts on 420 and drug use

Small intro: from the American celebration of cannabis, 4/20 on the 20th April every year. Also celebrated round the world.

On the grand scale of things smoking the odd bit of cannabis isn’t going to do anyone a great deal of harm. But you have to draw the line. We all know that cannibis leads to other drugs. And if you smoke it all day long you’re going to lose your head.

I am against other drugs entirely, but cannabis on it’s own – I can live with that. I hate seeing kids on drugs though, that’ll really mess their education up before they’ve even got a chance to get a job, or go to University.

Safe use, all good and well in my mind. Just not so much that it leads your social, and even professional life to become ruined.

There are far more worse things.

Just ‘cos you drive a bus, doesn’t mean you can cut me up!

This is something that has been bothering me lately.

I meet the same bus on a regular basis, when I drive to work, and depending on what time I leave I happen to meet it. This normally involves it not slowing down and me having move over as far as possible.

I know that’s not cutting me up, but I can talk about that on several other occasions, such as the big roundabout in Bedford. You’ll know which one if you drive there often.

The first reaction if you’re driving something smaller than a bus, is to get out of the way, but this is bullying and it pisses me off.

Bresink Software – TinkerTool System Release 2 for Mac OS X

TinkerTool

TinkerTool System Release 2 is a collection of system utility features helping you in performing advanced administration tasks on Apple Macintosh computers.

TinkerTool is a great piece of software to modify system settings for those using Mac OS X and know what they are doing. It isn’t for novices.

I found it particularly useful by enabling ‘Developer Mode’ on the Dashboard Widgets, enabling one to keep Widgets on the Desktop :-)

Great little tool!
