It wasn't just me, a star really was born

I resumed my occasional persona of Eisteddfod Father yesterday - we drove to Wagga Wagga for my now four-year-old daughter to reprise the role in which she made her stage debut a couple of months ago.

In awarding the group first place in the section, the adjudicator singled out my daughter for special praise. What an observant and astute adjudicator she was, although with a certain knack of stating the bleeding obvious.

I think I've created a monster. I think the monster is me.

A short experiment in search engine manipulation

I recently posted to a frequent flyer site using the word hexamethylphosphoramide (it's a long story). Being such an unusual word I wondered whether that thread would make its way to a reasonable ranking for a search for hexamethylphosphoramide on a popular search engine. It hasn't yet, so I'm wondering whether referencing the thread from here might improve things. Let's see.
