More news from the BBC

Good morning/afternoon/evening/night. Thank you for tuning into the BBC News (Bassa’s Blogging Channel).

This is your good news correspondent, Bassa, reporting from Tbilisi in the Republic of Georgia.

Earlier today I shared a story from one of my favorite blogs, Dog House Forever.

Whilst undertaking my journalistic research I discovered another gem in the Dog House Forever archive.

Reading this makes you realise that canine poetry is alive and kicking and very funny!

How did you find bassa’s blog?

WordPress provides some very interesting information and statistics about your blog. These are some of the search terms that people have used to find Bassa’s Blog in the last 7 days. I have added comments and/or my interpretation:

Caucasian shepherd teeth – Hmm, perhaps a dentist or the tooth fairy?

The thing dog 2011 – I am not a thing, I am a person dog

Tbilisi goats – probably one of my goat fans!

Lion shepherd – Someone on a game reserve in Africa looking for a very specialised shepherd dog? Sounds like a dangerous job – I probably won’t apply for that one.

Shota boy shorts – Shota is a Georgian boys name. Perhaps I should design a range of childrens clothes – there is obviously a commercial opportunity here.

Sell tree leaves – a little obscure but I did do a post on the lady who sells leaves.

I want to send a message to extraterrestrials – This was quite worrying!

Shrunken people pretending to be toys – maybe this refers to my little person but he is not shrunken, he is just little and growing.

Facebook dog he is drooling on me – OMG! Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot is googling from heaven!

Nude blog – I expect this person was quite disappointed to be directed to Bassa’s Blog!

Bassas blog – Well done!

Aren’t search engines wonderful things?

Bassa at the movies

Today, I am re-enacting some scenes from famous movies.

“Open the pod bay doors, please, HAL.” – DAVE BOWMAN (Keir Dullea) in 2001 A Space Odyssey (1968)

“Take your stinkin’ paws off me, you damn dirty ape.” – TAYLOR (Charlton Heston) in Planet of the Apes (1968)

“I’ll be back.” – TERMINATOR (Arnold Schwarzenegger) in The Terminator (1984)

“We all go a little mad sometimes.” – NORMAN BATES (Anthony Perkins) in Psycho (1960)

“She walked off the street, into his life and stole his heart.” – Pretty Woman (1990)

Electromagnetic radiation from about 390 to 740 nm in wavelength disturbed my nap!

I was taking my usual afternoon nap when something woke me up. It wasn’t a sound or a scent or a bad dream. It was a shaft of light warming my face.

Intrigued by this scentless thing that cannot be touched or tasted I asked the tall person what it was. He told me that light is simply a name for a range of electromagnetic radiation, from about 390 to 740 nm in wavelength, that can be detected by the eye, stimulating sight and making things visible.

Okay but what is electromagnetic radiation?

Tall person pondered for a moment and then said that light is part of the electromagnetic spectrum, which ranges from radio waves to gamma rays. Electromagnetic radiation waves, as their names suggest are fluctuations of electric and magnetic fields, which can transport energy from one location to another.

Hmm.

He went on to explain that electromagnetic radiation can also be described in terms of a stream of photons which are massless particles each travelling with wavelike properties at the speed of light.

Thank you tall person, that was very illuminating.

Can you now ask the electromagnetic radiation to turn off the light so I can get some sleep.

Bassa cries wolf!

I woke the tall person with my usual alarm barks this morning but when he got up to let me out I just stood by the door.

Tall person looked at me and after a while asked if I had heard the story about the boy who cried wolf.

I looked at him for a second and then returned to the kitchen, laid down and went back to sleep.

Did he really think I wanted to hear a story at 5.00 a.m.?
