And speaking of reasons to stay indoors and watch the telly, if you haven't done it already, check out Heroes. It's great stuff and typical of some of the excellent SciFi that's come out over the last few years. That and Battlestar Galactica, which is just so frakkin' good that it's unmissable. I love SciFi. Always have.
The fact that Firefly was cancelled after one season when some of the pish out there drags on and on really gets my goat.
Edited to say "Cheers" to Aktoman for adding a link to here from his very own blog (see links below) and to Weird Darren (link below also) for a mention in his weekly blog round-up over at Outdoorsmagic :o)
