Thank God for September and the weather, that has finally dipped below 90 degrees. At 85 today it seems quite pleasant! Most importantly, September brings new seasons of all my favourite TV programmes! I am so excited about the new season of , "Dexter" the handsome and darkly funny serial killer who kills serial killers, and "Brothers and Sisters" the always tear inducing drama set in California about the most fantastically good looking family and their endless personal and business failings! Not to mention of course, "Desperate Housewives", "Secret Diary of a Call Girl"...you get the picture! I have become some what of an addict here I must confess and there has been almost a month with zilch on the box and I have resorted to watching shows like "DC Cupcakes", about 2 women who run a cupcake shop - it is not about how to make cupcakes, but mostly about their trans-gender sales person and incompetent delivery man! I have even watched the News which is really desperate!
The other night however I tuned into a film called "The Cove". Now I don't know if you have seen this or even heard of it but you must get a copy and watch it. It is a documentary (don't switch off just because I don't say Rom. Com!) that will have a profound effect on you. It tells the story of the dolphin trade in Taijii, Japan and it is horrifying.
I admit, I am not a huge animal fan. Not that I don't like them, I just never had the need to go all gooey over a kitten or got the urge to own a dog. This however is not a case of "do you love animals?", it is a case of doing the right thing. It is a case of having a conscience about the planet on which we live and the things that have a right to live alongside us.
