The Dog Days Are Over...

The churchill dogs have gone on holiday today as Katie and I have initiated a new chair motion trend, the swinging cat...but more on that later.

The last couple of days have been all about mastering the world of online journalism and not being a complete bore for the disloyal readers out there. This basically meant faffing around on twitter, writing news copy and an opinion piece (unexpected joy) for the blog Ade made for us.

2. Can you picture it? If the answer is no then its not a good news story
3. Visual, visual, visual - pictures are everything
