How did I miss this Craig?
OMG, poor Kong saved himself a bucket load of embarrassment after the Seattle Aquarium cancelled his Valentine’s Day mating session in front of visitors. Yes, every year on Valentine’s Day people can view octopus sex. Yep, you heard me, octopus sex. Tentacles thrashing everywhere!!!! But unfortunately for Kong, he was too big for the lovely lady octopuses and staff feared Kong might eat them, as he is more than double their size. However, there was relief all around as Kong lived to see another day…. evidently an octopus dies soon after sex. Go Kong!!!!

How did I miss this Craig?
I’ll get you my pretty and your dog too! 50 mph winds and a suspected tornado in Chittenango, birthplace of the author of Wizard of Oz, L.Frank Baum, forced the cancellation of the “Oz-Stravaganza”. So very ironic. The storm blew away many of the vendors tents which were set up for the Oz festival. Even the real-life munchkins from the “lollipop guild” (yes, a few are still alive), who were guests of honor, were forced to batten down the hatches as the power went off. On a lighter note, one of the vendors proclaimed “We’re not in Kansas anymore,”
Oh boy, seems the Islamic Solidarity Games, which is intended to be a happy fest among Muslim nations and designed to strengthen ties, has been canceled over a waterway tiff. It all started when Iran, who are hosting the sporting event this year, put “Persian Gulf” on the logo . It seems all the other Arab nations call the waterway the “Arabian Gulf” and were pretty pissed when its “common” name was used. Meanwhile Iran stands firm saying, tough, that is what it has historically been known. End result… “The federation regrettably declares the cancellation of the games in Iran because the organisers did not comply with the rules of games and the federation’s bylaws,” Well, at least they had 5 good solidarity years before this.
Psst Additional bummer, women were going to be allowed to compete this year.
When you are the most haunted village in the country it isn’t surprising the locals loath Halloween! Pluckley residents, who boast over 12 spooks, including a highwayman, ghost in a pub, a phantom monk and a hanging school master, are so tired of people invading their town and wreaking havoc during Halloween they are banning it . Move on people, nothing to see here. Talk about a dissing “There will be no barbecue, no hog roast, no beer tent, no fun fair and there will be no ghost tours. In fact, unless you are coming for a quiet drink, may we suggest you visit one of the many other attractions in Kent for Halloween.” Evidently Pluckley gets invaded by hundreds of Halloweeners each year and they are scarier than their ghosts!
