Today, Jan 19th 2014.........

Two men were arrested after they reportedly told police officers a dog was driving their minivan when it crashed.
Officers were called to a veterinary clinic in Oklahoma, United States, when a vehicle was spotted in a ditch on January 11, according to Channel Eight. When the owners of the gold minivan, William McDonald, 65, and Steven Schofield, 42, were asked how the accident happened, they said their dog was driving.

Both were immediately detained, with Tahlequah police officers seemingly not believing their story. Their dog was taken to a local animal shelter but has so far refused to say whether it was behind the wheel.  {-) {-)

out of the floods into the fire, not sure which is safer - drown in the floods or take a trip in one of those things - okay for their time, proving to be a little problematic nowadays.

It depends on how well you chewed it originally. One of your compatriots, a "Monsieur Mangetout", was famous for eating all sorts of mad stuff, including bicycles and an aeroplane. What happened to them afterwards we were never told................  :o   but he died, age 57, of natural causes.

You have to ask yourself, for those in our generation, if we ever thought we'ed see the day when an American warship could get close enough to Russia to run aground without getting blown out of the water.

It isn't actually near Sochi, it was docking in a Turkish port.
