Sorry to have to cheekily ask- Mini Paws is currently collecting the Lego trading cards that they give you free at Sainsburys. IF any one has any swaps they’d like to share with me… er, I mean her, then please let me know.
A quick favour that I would like to direct ATM. I have been asked to host a pub quiz at work next week, as part of our end of year celebrations. I was wondering if anyone has any nice questions I could pose my colleagues. I have come up with a few ideas and I have looked at some internet pub quizzes, but I’d prefer a few interesting ideas. That said, I do have to go to work with these people so I’d prefer if they didn’t all hate me by the end of this!
All questions (and answers) appreciated
Happy Easter everyone. This is what’s currently doing the rounds in our house, with mini paws very much enjoying this advert form the 80’s (and the associated chocolate eggs). How about you, what are you doing for Easter?

Driving to work this morning I put on an album whose opening line is-
“It doesn’t matter if we all die.”
Five points if you can guess the album!
An autobiography from the Spacemen 3/Spiritualized bass player? Well sign me up!
Surely not everyone’s idea of a good Rock N Roll read, Carruthers’ autobiography mainly focuses on the role of a bass player in a League 1 indie band, just as they are taking off. His tale is one of developing music in a psychadelic band where two notes are good, but one note is better, but also of the poverty and lengths he had to go to just to survive.
Joining Spacemen 3 as a 21 year old he was perhaps too trusting to get someone reasonable to read through his contract and whilst he waited for the royalty cheque that was never going to come, became poorer and poorer. History seems to repeat itself when the Spacemen dissolve and Spiritualized rise from the ashes. Initially agreed upon as a democratic band, this soon seems become another broken promise as he helps to tour and record the (fabulous) debut album Lazer Guided Melodies, but sees very little in the way of money. But this book isn’t just an exhibition in how to slide into poverty, Spacemen 3 were known as the band that would » Continue Reading.

It was my turn to get Little Paws up this morning, whilst Mrs. Paws had a lie in. With quality parenting to the fore, we both sat on the sofa and watched Duck Soup and it initially surprised me that Little Paws loved it. On reflection I suspect that the slapstick, surreal elements and comedy one liners should really appeal to a five year old. Hopefully I have passed a love of the Marx Brothers on for another generation.
Does the massive have any other movie suggestions that might keep us away from Disney Princesses? We’ve already got through six of the seven Star Wars films, but what could be next? All suggestions appreciated 🙂
HI everybody, I’m new here and I thought I should introduce myself accordingly. I have been lurking for a while and was a long time subscriber of both the original magazine and podcast. Now I’ve signed up, although I am not sure if I’ll have a great deal to add. All the best Pawsforthought
