Topic: Silly News

The shelters are full of them, these throwaway cats and dogs, whose only crimes were having the misfortune of being the pets of people who considered them "property" rather than "family."

We have 2. Their names are Moonlight and Miss Boo  Laughing


They are members of the family.

So, we are writing 2009 and i don't even know where to begin.

Shame on letting this blog to waste as i read the other day somewhere there are over 1 million orphaned blogs.

The story about Helsinki Times is that indeed what once started out as an idea for a source of english language news - in a blogged format - ultimately became the largest English Language Newspaper in Finland with a weekly print circulation of 15,000 copies.

Now I might be mistaken, but to the best of my knowledge our little old Helsinki Times blog might very well be the only blog in the world that turned into a newspaper instead of the other way around.

This is where you can read the story: 

Not bad for a free tripod-blog written by an avatar named Oobio, right?
