My second reprise and first up today is the delicious and delightful Kylie's Arse. Rather inappropriately though this blog is - or rather was - left-wing. Unfortunately Kylie's Arse is no longer, there having been no posts since December: about the time she duetted with Leon on the X-Factor.
Despite the name and the political viewpoint there was an excellent post How to Stop Talking Out of Your Arse in which insights painfully gleaned over a lifetime of politcal twaddle" were listed.
With Kylie's Arse on one knee I sit a "Fifties Chick" on the other. Swearing Mother starts with, "OK, so now you know I'm well over fifty, but please don't hold that against me. And guess what, being fifty plus isn't any big deal really. It just looks bad on paper. Of course, there are mornings when I wake up and think "Shit, I'm really old" but by the time I'm up and showered, have blow-dried my hair, put on some slap and a foxy outfit from one of my favourite non-geriatric stores (Hobbs, Zara or M and S on a good day) and spritzed myself with perfume, I am definitely hot to trot."

Hopi Sen writes: "Occasionally however, I’m confronted by an argument that suggests it’s better to lose an election than to win it. It’s a thought often expressed by bien pensant types, who, esconsed in comfortable studies, sipping on a warming cocoa (or possibly smoking a pipe) murmur that perhaps it’s a good thing to lose power by a slim margin, lest you lose it by a bigger margin later." The full post which expands the argument is well worth reading.
"Obsolete" - a new blog to me - features with two great posts. There are no synopses for these posts: it's better just to read them [The Political Tyrrany of Grief and Scum-watch: Vengeance, Redemption and Hypocrisy].
Finally this week, Angry Steve complains about a domain registry with an unusual business practice.
