Changing Clocks: Temporal Sleight of Hand

Although I'd seen news stories last week whose central thesis was that the clocks were going to change on Sunday, it was one of those things which I just ignored and assumed wouldn't affect me.
How wrong was I. Currently I have no idea what the time is.
I think Radio 4 have changed their clocks, because they're usually pretty diligent about these sort of things, but even that's no guarentee. My mobile seems to have automatically updated, but I don't think every clock in college has changed. I thought I'd got this whole thing sorted, but then I cycled into Battersea Post Office this morning, expecting their time pieces to agree with mine, but I found myself thrown back into the Sargasso Sea of temporal confusion.
Oh dear.

The Funny Bone

It occured to me today that I haven't hit my funny bone for some time, which I think is a shame. I'm not sure I could locate it on purpose though which is even more frustrating.
When was the last time you hit your funny bone and what was you reaction?

Happy 100th Birthday Cardiff!

Cardiff today celebrates 100 glorious years since it was awarded city status back in 1905. I was back in Cardiff as recently as last weekend and my on the spot research confirmed that Europe's youngest capital city is still awesome. Keep up the good work Cardiff.

BBC News Wales story

On the subject of BBC News Wales, I had a pleasing surprise on Wednesday morning: one of my photos was included in this week's gallery of 'Wales in Pictures'. Check it out here (picture number 6).
