Live subtitles

They're normally good for a laugh, but whoever is doing them tonight has
just interpreted Dida, the Brazilian goalkeeper as D-Day, and Di-Dare!

BBC Sport Player

Oh the glories of the digital age. While the children waste their lives watching Boogie Beebies in the living room, I'm watching the world cup in the kitchen on the laptop while doing the cooking, with the big speakers plugged in for excellent sound! Happy days.

Vegetable patch and human rights

Our vegetable patch is now fully planted, with 7 cabbages taking up the rest of the space. So far we've had about 15 basil plants eaten by slugs, and the tomatoes have been flattened twice by the wind. Only the rocket has survived from seed, but that is fit and healthy and ready to be eaten.
As for human rights, I saw a piece in the Observer about putting information on your blogs, that other countries are trying to censor, so that's what that box on the left is for. It takes you to the amnesty site, and from there to the site being censored. I suppose it must be a mirror site or something like that, if the government in question hs blocked it.
