We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

Wouldn't it be nice to sabotage a hotpot supper

You know how there's always someone worse off than yourself? Well, like as not they work for Benchmark Library Service.

They've spent the past ten years in perpetual reorganisation and penury (not necessarily in that order). The first thing that went was the Chief Librarian, which God knows isn't always a bad thing. Since then various combinations of poor devils have tried to keep the wheels on the tricycle (a handcart being beyond their means), in between cut-backs and culls of anybody who may want anything above the minimum wage.

I notice they're advertising the Chief Librarian's post this week. To oversee the latest round of reorganisations and efficiencies and Call-Me-Dave's Big Society.

Interesting to see that we've not entirely abandoned human sacrifice.

I swear you couldn't make it up could you...why do we continue to let them at top bugger things up all the time?

Consistency doesn't seem to be their strong point.
There's a garden query over at mine.

Human sacrifice, the one political gimmick that hasn't been tried for a while now.
