Sidecar Doggy!

When motorcycling lover Alan Valkeith went out on the road, there was one – big and furry – thing that he really missed. And so rather than leave his pet dog at home, the 62-year-old found the perfect solution for the St Bernard – a sidecar. Not only that but the appropriately named Harley also has Doggles and a specially-made crash helmet. ‘As soon as I make a move to go in the garage, he’s there, wanting to get in the bike,’ Mr Valkeith said. ‘I don’t like leaving a dog on its own at home, especially with a St Bernard. They have to be with someone or another animal, otherwise they fret.’ Harley was given Doggles to protect him from the sun while on the Honda Gold Wing 1200. Mr Valkeith also bought a helmet and remoulded the polystyrene inside to make it fit his 17-month-old pet’s head.” w/ photo

111-Year-Old Christmas Pudding

A Christmas pudding believed to be the oldest in the world has been discovered at the back of a cupboard and handed to museum staff. The pudding was one of 1,000 sent in 1900 to the Naval Brigade, fighting on the frontline in the Boer War, by a Victorian philanthropist. Somehow it made its way back to the UK and has been sitting, for the past few years anyway, in a kitchen cupboard in Poole, Dorset. The 111-year-old pudding, thought to be the last survivor of the original batch, is still in its unopened decorative tin. Sadly, it is now thought to be inedible. It is set to go on display at The National Museum of the Royal Navy at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, Hampshire.” w/ photos

The Chemistry Of Acne

“Here is some good news for you: you can blame the sounds and odors that come from your body on bacteria. Yup — those little critters are the ones responsible for a lot of what goes on inside our bodies. People can be uptight about all these bodily sights and smells, but understanding the science behind what may appear gross may make these things a little less gross.” — BytesizeScience

Man Pays Off Mother’s 1954 Parking Ticket

A parking ticket issued 57 years ago in southeast Nebraska has finally been paid off. The fine: a dime. York Police Chief Don Klug says a man walked into the station Tuesday with the ticket and payment — mounted and framed. Klug tells the York News-Times that the man said he found the ticket among his mother’s things and wanted to settle the debt. The ticket was issued on July 13, 1954, to a vehicle licensed in Oklahoma. The man told Klug that he believed his mother had been visiting York at the time and probably lost track of the citation.” w/ photos

Top 10 Historical Celtic Artifacts

“The Celts are an often misunderstood people. Originating from Austria (circa 1200 BC), they spread across Europe as far as Britain and Spain-and even into Asia Minor, as seen with the Galatians. They were renowned warriors, noted in Greek and Roman literature. However, there is a bias against the Celts that continues into the modern era; subsequently the culture of the Celts is often overlooked. So this list stands as a testament and also an introduction to Celtic culture.” w/ photos
