UK Singer Joss Stone must be thanking her lucky stars that her neighbors are nosy buggers and reported a suspicious vehicle near her house because it seems two men had plans to rob and kill her.

You lazy, dumbassed, good for nothing Doberman Alsatian cross guard dog, it wasn’t like you had to do anything but growl and maybe show your teeth. Taz the guard dog is going into retirement in shame after sleeping through a burglary.It happened to be the only time the Dartmouth Arms in Devon had ever been robbed in the 12 years Taz was employed to guard it.Familiarity breeds contempt me thinks.

Look away Cat Lady and cat lovers, I have some unhappy news regarding Casper the bus commuting cat from Plymouth. Oh dear, seems he has become road kill. Yes poor Casper, who gained fame by regularly commuting on the #3 service around Devon by himself, has been killed by a hit and run driver. The feline gained worldwide attention after it was discovered he would patiently line up with the other passengers before boarding the bus and then curl up asleep every day.
A Devon man faces prosecution for deliberately driving through a puddle to splash a group of school children waiting for a bus. He would have got away with it had he not posted the whole thing on Youtube. A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said “Deliberately splashing people by driving through a big puddle could mean that the motorist was driving without reasonable consideration for other road users.” Well, that’s one less joy I’ll have next winter! I think this is the incident in question, hard to tell because they removed the driver’s footage from Youtube!
