"Taxonomy, taxonomy, my kingdom for a taxonomy".

OK so it sounds like the sort of thing that Chico Marx would have said if he was in the running for Gordon Brown's job as Chancellor of the Exchequer. Or maybe it is what the boys at the Landfill tax levy department are mulling over and blue-skying [sounds painful I know, but then someone has to segregate out rubbish into bags :- glass (brown) / paper (blue) / metal (red) / putrescence (black) and Jeffrey Archer (transparent)]

So back to the big question, is the world held together by multi-dimensional "super-string theory" or just al-dente spaghetti (yes yes we know that is how you test if the stuff is ready - fling it up to the ceiling and if it sticks there, then uncap the ketchup)

Anyway we got tired of having to update calenders with information about when the jobs pages were ready, and decided much like the frog that did a wooing go, that we would a
blogging go.

Although I must say this blogging thing is a bit over-rated if you ask me, I mean having to think of something new to say everyday and then tell the world about it (much like the editor of a tabloid I s'pose)

Anyway 'ere at this 'umble website we have decided to take 'eed from Shakespeare (Love's Labour's Lost)

      Henceforth my blogging mind shall be expressed
      in Russet yeas and honest kersey noes

What? you want that in plain english! whatever next - you will probably want to read something that is actually of relevance to contaminated land.

  • 185 Environmental jobs on offer: (1st - 7th February)
      posted on the site on March 6th 2004 - still somewhat delayed (but honestly the full listing has now started again in the beginning of February) as we have been totally distracted by Bur's success at the Brit awards
  • 130 Environmental jobs on offer: (4th January - 10th January)
      posted on the site on January 25th 2004 - still somewhat delayed, but the full listing will start again in the beginning of February, as we have been totally distracted by recent reports of WMD's

    • 171 Environmental jobs on offer: (2nd - 8th November 2003)
        posted on the site on December 18th 2003 - again delayed, 'Umble apologies - a combination of circumstances related to trying to install a new hard-drive and actually short-circuiting my PC's motherboard, plus the Rugby World Cup were only some of the excuses for the non-appearance of the jobs page listing! - the full listing should be back up for December but until then here is what was on offer at the beginning of this November.

        OK so its a pretty feeble excuse for someone who spent a large part of his working life as an exploration geologist in Zambia, Tanzania and Saudi Arabia (where it would get up to 120 F in the shade)

        Anyway most of the Autumn was spent the time in some fairly deep discussions with Bur (yes the neighbours mad Burmese cat) - apparently he thinks that in a previous life he played in the rock-band Lynnrd Skynnrd, and now spends alot of his time yowling their lead guitar solos ("Freebird", and "Sweet Home Battersea Power Station" being his favourites)

    Google has got a news service in "beta" which allows you to scan the web for printed news relating to various topics. The way it works is first you do a search on a topic (such as contaminated land), then you click on the "tab" at the top that says "news", and bingo you get all the stuff on the web that mentions contaminated land.

    In order to make life easier we have "hard-coded" a few topics for you, such as :-

    1. Brownfields
    2. Contaminated land
    3. Geology
    4. GIS
    5. Landfill
    6. Mining
    7. Remediation
    8. Pollution

    One of the problems of having a website is that you get so much spam. OK I know it's a bit like reverse snobbery - the less spam you get the more insignificant that you are

    On a good day around 750 emails come in, of which maybe 5-10 are of any use, they immediately go down to the abattoir, where after a brief discussion with a flensing knife the meat and the spinal cord are separated and the former discarded. The spinal cord (well it is the vital link from brain to brawn) is served-up for your delectation:-

    Bur our local Burmese Yardie-cat, even though he appears to live on the streets, has access to email, and was telling me only yesterday about an email he had received offering him a share of some unclaimed money......

      Dear Editor of the Daily Mirroir,

      I got your contact through the email business directory and decided to send my proposal to you.

      I am Jeffrey Sese Seko Mobuto Mugabe Savimbi Kabila the seventh cousin of the seventh cousin of the late chief Butler of the federal republic of England who was mysteriously disappeared from public view whilst at the Old Bailey on the 4th of November 2002 by unidentified forces believed to be linked to by the present rulers.

      Two months before this, he was warned of an attempt on his life but fortunately then David Shayler spared his life for us.

      It was then, he had to reveal some vital informations as regards the life of his previous employer to me before he was finally disappeared. All accounts belonging to him both at his local and abroad had been frozen and his investments seized by the government believing in their false allegation that he made away with 2 million DM (Diana Memorabilia)

      I know is just a ploy to eliminate him by the people in power that he is fustrating their evil intentions through the human rights public hearings for violation of vulpine rights and cruelsome killings whilst trying to currie favour during the major's military regime.

      We are now in a di-lemma, as our lives are in danger until after the book launch two weeks before Christmas holiday in 2002.

      My cousin spoke to me at length about life and its relatives. He told me he deposited a trunk box containing 1 million DM with a Security and Finance Company overseas, with the intention of retrieving it himself before he was eventually disappeared before the Christmas. According to him the content of the box was registered as government classified papers with his influence and was moved out of my country through diplomatic courrier. He wanted to safeguard the funds for foriegn investment after his retirement before he was killed.

      In the light of the above and based on the fact that I am next of kin I am now contacting you as a foreigner to assist me in retrieving the boxes and subsequently deposite of the funds into your foreign account. My mother and I have agreed to give you 30% of the fund for your assistance and 10% for any expenses you might incur in the course of this transaction, we want to believe that you will not sit on the money when paid into your account. I want you to understand that there is no risk involved as we have worked out modalities for the smooth actualization of this goal.

      I will require the following for effecting the documents of claim and identification.:
      1. Your private telephone and fax numbers.
      2. Your contact address
      3. Your bank details

      I will send you the following:
      1. The airway bill used in sending the boxes
      2. The password being the security code
      3. The deposit certificate

      I wish to state here that we are left with nothing as we survive by the grace of God. I hope you understand our predicament so as to save me and my family from hopeless future.

      Waiting your urgent response.
      Best regards,
      Jeffrey Sese Seko Mobuto Mugabe Savimbi Kabila
