More Mystery Parade. Cliffe puts up eight more images of the Seattle Mystery parade.

Follow-up: The British legal system won't punish a boy for calling Scientology a cult. If you read further down, you'll note that Scientologists have been bribing London police, which is why the boy was abused in the first place, no doubt.

Flat Pack Housing. I still think more people should be using shipping containers as housing.

Pug for the in-laws.
