Thursday 21st - feeling stressed!

Modern life too stressful: research
Britons are becoming increasingly impatient as the time pressures of modern life leave people feeling stressed, research has claimed.

Two-thirds of people said they thought modern life was too stressful, while 96 per cent admitted they behaved badly because of the rush they were in to get everything done, according to online insurer

The study, which was carried out by the Future Foundation, found that 60 per cent of people had jumped or swapped queues at the supermarket and 22 per cent had even abandoned their trolley or basket full of shopping because the queue to pay for things was too long and they had run out of time.

Beam Me Up Scottie!
According to the web site Ireland On Line, eighty-five-year-old actor James Doohan, who played Scotty in Star Trek and died yesterday, will be cremated and his ashes shot into space. (This is at the actor's request.)

It’s a fitting end for a man who spent the majority of his on-screen career holed up in the engineering room of the Starship Enterprise.Born in Vancouver, Canada, Doohan’s Scots brogue was created for the show. Always happy to chat with die-hard Trekkies, he spent the last few years as a regular on the convention circuit.
