OK, so MS Word has flagged the above real sentence, written by a real person, as grammatically incorrect. When I ask it why, it says: Fragment (consider revising). When I ask it to explain, it says:
If the marked words are an incomplete thought, consider developing this thought into a complete sentence by adding a subject or a verb or combining this text with another sentence.
Instead of: Meteors the entire night.
Consider: We watched meteors the entire night.
Instead of: Because the teacher said to.
Consider: You have to, because the teacher said to.
Can any language boffins out there help identify the mistake(s) in more detail?
I’ve noticed that the search term “blueprint css breadcrumb” has brought visitors to my blog. From what I vaguely remember about blueprint css, it doesn’t have support for breadcrumb navigation. If there is, either the documentation for it isn’t up to par or I’m expected to read the whole source which, particularly when it comes to CSS, renders the framework pointless anyway.
Whoever you are, you might want to check out Bootstrap, from Twitter. Bootstrap does have breadcrumb support, with example Markup right next to it in the documentation to get you going.
I sometimes need to test some jQuery locally and I’m never organised enough to have a template ready. The latest version from a CDN is all I need and googling for the URL or searching my bookmarks will take longer than the solution I came up with today.
I’m hoping that if I use it enough times, I’ll remember it! If you use this tip, make sure you don’t copy paste this onto your production systems. You could do without the one extra request to is.gd
Edit: I’ve added a URL for Bootstrap, from Twitter. It is:
<link href="http://is.gd/Bootstrap" rel="stylesheet" />
Video clip sent to me by my friend Malcolm from Peyia, Cyprus. The sea was so rough that the water was breaking over the harbour wall. Lucky our common friend Brian was not out sailing that day!

My sister-in-law, Marlen, has sent me these pictures of what home away from home looked like a couple of days ago.
We go there up to twice a year, but I have never been there when it’s like this.
Below, Bella our dog is as good as deaf, almost blind, has one or two crooked teeth left and we still love her to bits; especially when she barks at us when we first return until she somehow manages to recognise us.
Below is the street in front of our house. The green fencing opposite is for a mini football pitch which during the hot summer months is floodlit until late at night where the youths mingle and play… while I drink beer and nibble on Pastramă, the Romanian equivalent of Pastrami.
The Greek custom of Tsiknopempti (loosely translatable as “Barbecue Thursday”), involves the massive consumption of charred meat in the evening of Thursday, ten days before the beginning of the Great Lent (the Orthodox stop eating meat a week before Lent starts).
Picture taken in Anexartisias Street, Limassol, Cyprus.
