Stop press!  Jeremy Corbyn is a member of the "All-Party Parliamentary Group for Cheese"!  I am given to understand (by the BBC) that he also makes his own jam from allotment-grown fruit.  And I've never seen him and +Kali G in the same place...
TITLE. All-Party Parliamentary Group for Cheese. PURPOSE. To increase awareness of issues surrounding the dairy industry and focus on economic issues affecting the dairy industry and producers. OFFICERS. Title. Name. Party. Chair. Vice-Chair. Treasurer. Secretary. Dan Rogerson. Mark Williams ...

Well you're a vegetarian so I'm pretty sure you're legally obliged to be in the Green Party.

Like the old Cornflakes ad: had you forgotten how good it is?

Reading a menu yesterday, I found that the establishment offered "smocked salmon"...

I think the length and intensity of my mirth may have left my lunch companion a little bewildered.  Even after several minutes the image of a salmon in a rather shapeless dress (with a bonnet) plagued me and it was all I could do to say "I prefer my salmon in clothes, but so few places offer it now days", which didn't help much.

"Smocked salmon" ... I'm still laughing.

I opted for the ham and cheese omelette: I couldn't handle trying to order the smocked salmon.

I seek lore regarding how G+ works!

Some of my friends NEVER seem to see "Bob +1'ed this post in Clam Fetishists Anonymous"  I am looking at ALL circles (ie my main feed) and things that people in my circles have +1'ed come up pretty frequently.

What setting am I missing to see only stuff my circles post rather than stuff they +1?

That'll only "fix" it for this one particular example and I'm guessing you don't want to join a bunch of communities you're not interested in...plus it assumes you'll be able to join them too.

Since it only shows it on the Home stream, maybe the easiest solution is to set up a Circle of people you want to read (which may be everyone) and just look at that?

I'm guessing not many Commons speeches get 10m hits.
The SNP politician received widespread praise for her first contribution in the House of Commons.

I should actually get round to watching that. I've been avoiding most political stories as it's all too depressing...

I love Twin Peaks.  Not sure I quite love it this much, but it's interesting that it still has so much pull.
"Twin Peaks" fans who happen to be in London in the next few months can sign up for an "immersive dining experience" at pop-up restaurant The Owls Are Not What They Seem. Named for one of the TV sh...

Some people might find this more interesting than the average Cecil-based post.  

I confidently expect much thought-provoking stuff from this new blog - their 'Comments Policy' might give you a good idea of what approach to expect if you don't already have a sense of either of the authors.

I doubt he'll see comment here, but I'm sure he would welcome your comment on his blog page.

Tomorrow we're off to London Zoo, now home to something called (wait for it) "In With The Spiders" ...  I won't post a link because it'll cause a giant spider pic in people's feeds, but if you want to Google it be my guest.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing it from a distance and discerning whether going inside is a good idea or not.  There's "cured" and then there's "Cured!", you know...

Bloody historians.
What could be the world's oldest fragments of the Koran have been found by the University of Birmingham.

Oh.  My.  God.  He seemed so promising ... for all of ten minutes.
The new leader of the Liberal Democrats, Tim Farron, faces a few questions about how his Christianity and politics interact.

If he doesn't win but makes a strong showing, things could get interesting.  Or really, really depressing.  Either way, great vibes so far but no doubt it's far from 'in the bag'.
Speculation is mounting that Jeremy Corbyn might do what many thought impossible and win the Labour leadership contest - Iain Watson looks at whether it could happen.

+Hugh Neek I agree. The parties are polarising, the further the Tory's go right, the further the left opposition will grow. Maybe for that reason, Corbyn will win Labour's leadership contest. Tory's will put out the frightners, because they are terrified of him.
