Six of the Best 18

  1. Reviewing the Scottish Liberal Democrat Conference in Perth from the comfort of her couch, Caron's Musings finds it to be chiefly concerned with schools, fairness and Viking dress.

  2. Norfolk Blogger reports the welcome news that Tesco's attempt to take over the known universe had been stalled in Sheringham.

  3. The Turkish genocide against the people of Armenia during and after Word War I is in the news. On Friday Eric Avebury attended the showing of a documentary on the subject.

  4. Madame Arcati reviews the front cover of Tony Blair's The Journey: "Notice how the corners of his mouth level off against the suggestion of a promised smile from the parted lips: it's the look of someone no longer certain of his reception. He looks you straight in the eye but he's wary. Not to be confused with contrition."

  5. As a service to my readers in Hertfordshire I pass on the Boho Boxmoor guide to the top 10 real ale pubs in the Hemel Hempstead area. When I lived there I was too young to enjoy them.

  6. In April New York's Museum of Modern Art is showing a series of films to celebrate the centenary of the birth of David Niven. Its website does not say which films will be shown but it does supply this fine still from A Matter of Life and Death.
