That is behind a paywall.
Here is the same story for free.

Oh my! That sea foam is highly corrosive. One of those stories was about homeless. I never hear about homeless in England and Ireland. Is that a big problem? It sure is here in Southern California. As the cost of housing goes up so does the homeless population.

Homelessness is a problem in most UK towns. Too many councils deny the scale but they do exist caused by any one of a number a reasons.

Boob humor. My friend John sent me this funny riff this AM and had to share.
What Religion is Your Bra?
A man walked into the ladies department of a Macy 's
and shyly walked up to
the woman behind the counter and said,
"I'd like to buy a bra for my wife."
"What type of bra?"
asked the clerk.
" Type?" inquires the man, "There's more than one type?"
"Look around,"
said the saleslady,
as she showed a sea of bras in every shape, size, color
and material imaginable.
!
"Actually,
even with all of this variety,
there are really only
four types of bras to choose from ."
Relieved, the man asked
about the types.
The saleslady replied:
"There are the Catholic,
the Salvation Army,
the Presbyterian,
and the Baptist types.
Which one would you prefer?"
Now totally befuddled,
the man asked about
the differences between them.
The Saleslady responded,
"It is all really quite simple. ...
The Catholic type
supports the masses;
The Salvation Army type lifts the fallen;
The Presbyterian type keeps them staunch and upright; and
The Baptist makes mountains out of mole hills."
Have you ever wondered why A, B, C, D, DD, E, F, G, and H are the letters used
to define bra sizes?
If you have wondered why,
but couldn't figure out
what the letters stood for,
it is about time
you became informed!
(A} Almost Boobs...
{B} Barely there...
{C} Can't Complain!...
{D} Dang!...
{DD} Double dang!...
{E} Enormous!...
{F} Fake...
{G} Get a Reduction...
{H} Help me, I've fallen
and I can't get up!...
Send this to
all that will appreciate it!
They forgot the German bra.....

Brrr I'm freezing... I went outside to check the sky for cloud cover. It's just after 12: 30 am here and cold. The cloud cover is total so there will be no chance of observing the Orionids Meteor shower tonight. When I came back in I clicked a link on Facebook for details about the shower and found a link to the BOM Satellite viewer and saw that the clouds are so thick that I cant even see my part of the country. Bummer I should have done this first and saved myself from getting chilled. Durrr...

Sweet revenge: Rhino charges, injures suspected poacher in Namibia

A rhino reportedly charged and injured a suspected poacher in Namibia who was illegally tracking the rhino, according to local reports.

Luteni Muharukua was injured on Oct. 14 after he and a group of other suspected poachers illegally entered the Etosha National Park and began tracking rhinos with the intent of killing them and taking their horns, The Namibian reported.

The rhino reportedly surprised the suspected poachers, and Muharukua fell to the ground while running away, police officer Simson Shilongo told the paper.

“His friends took and hid him on a nearby mountain, and he was arrested there the next day by the police,” Shilongo stated.

Muharukua was treated for his wounds at a local hospital, the Associated Press reported.

Some times headlines are really troublesome. Here is one I spotted today on the CBS Evening News website.
