And here’s Thursday once again and that means Davidd has to get on the scales at FatClub. Tonight he called into the earlier class to try and avoid the temptations of the alcoholics and chocolate lovers and managed to lose five and a half pounds!
While some guys get a slap on the back from their best mate, Casey Anderson is given a bear hug. Brutus the grizzly – who weighs half a ton – has been hand-reared by Casey ever since he was a cub. Casey, 33, said: “He’s my best friend. He couldn’t be released into the wild when he was born so had to remain in captivity or be put down. So I rescued him and built a home to save other grizzly bears.”
He doesn’t have a library card but Fidel the cat is still a regular visitor to Deal library in Kent.

They can all think for themselves! Which they’ve me to thank for.”
In the early hours of this morning the hit counter for our blog passed 250,000. That is a quarter of a million visits to the blog since we began back in 2007. Although this is relatively small potatoes to some sites who get way more than that in a single day, we are all really proud of the fact.
