Like taking photographs but don't know how to use the manual mode on your camera? Here's a good cheat sheet for that. Hoping I can learn to do this on mine!

Did you know that the Black Dahlia, Elizabeth Short, was born with the rare condition vaginal agenesis? I had never heard of this before reading James Ellroy's book about the murder. Good news for women born with this affliction! They can now produce vagina's in the laboratory and transplant them! Science is amazing.

Did you know Abraham Lincoln penned a 'true-crime' tale?

Tuesday I had an Epidermal Inclusion Cyst removed from my chest. Vanity, vanity! It wasn't a danger or anything I just didn't fancy a big bump on my chest, very unattractive :(  Here's a video of a doctor removing one. It's not me, found it on Youtube. My cyst didn't have that dark ring around it. Just looked like I had a robin's egg sitting under the skin. Just a tad sore now and I'll have a small scar, but that's better than a big bump! Any good ideas as to a 'fun' story as to how I got that scar?

Who wants this game?!

This game looks a right laugh!
