Rather short of nominations this week so I'll start with a reminder to take time to nominate your favourites. You can even nominate yourself, it really does give your traffic a boost and there are some exciting developments afoot with the round up which should lead for more hits for all.

It's reading things like this that make me give thanks for ready made ice cream and the humble pot of yoghurt. Truly the pudding from hell.
