If only Henry part VIII knew...

Apparently Nicole Kidman can get married (again) in a Catholic church is because.
"The original wedding was performed in the Church of Scientology and wasn't recognised by the Catholic faith." - BBC NEWS | Magazine | How did Nicole Kidman re-marry in a Catholic church?

Nice one. Now if Henry had come up with that one then maybe we'd have missed out on all those wars with Spain.

GP urged to boycott the NHS data spine

GPs and their families urged to boycott NHS 'spine' - specifically this bit

"Last week’s local medical committees’ conference voted in favour of aproposal to advise GPs to consider withdrawing from the spine afterhearing about access to the personal demographics service (PDS) whichholds demographic data on every patient in England."

The PDS hold address details. Now unless I'm very much mistaken if you enter the search criteria required for these details to come back i.e. name, address, postcode etc into a website that interfaces with the phonebook then you also get just about the same data back. no one audits that. At least with the spine there are some safeguards.

Then of course we have the electoral rolls which are just about sold all over the shop and I'm not even mentioning google...

Another year, another trip to San Sebastian. This time with added day-trip to Bilbao to walk around the closed on mondays Guggenheim museum. So what do you do? Gather on some steps and try to create rock star poses of course.
