Because this is.
Thanks Bug Girl, as ever.

I can't believe Google Ads have chosen to add an advert for Thorntons.
I dare anyone to look at either of these and then go and buy a bar of chocolate.
I think you've caught something from Zombizi...
A little bit off-topic, but here's an email I sent out to Charlie Bolton and some other political(ish) bloggers earlier today:
(cc'ed to a few other local bloggers)
I've been experimenting with some software to extract and repackage video from the Council webcasts (as the early ones are likely to start going offline soon). The Public-I web-casting service is very handy, but it doesn't offer an easy solution for embeddeding bits of video in a blog post. So I've now got a way to transfer segments of the webcasts into You Tube.
As a test, I used a section from last year's E-Democracy day, which you might recognise:
Bolton on Blogging #1
Bolton on Blogging #2
On a non-partisan note to yourself and the other bloggers copied on this email, if you've spotted something interesting in a council meeting that has been web-cast - or made a contribution you'd like to reference on your blog - send me the details and I can extract the relevant section and bung it on You Tube.
To make things easy, I need the following details:
* The name and date of the web-cast (e.g. Cabinet on X/X/X)
* The description of what you want extracted (e.g. a speech by Councillor Smith; a motion moved by Councillor Jones; a public statement etc.)
* A rough idea of where in the recording it can be found (e.g about 5 minutes in; time codes 10:20-21:50)
