Uri Geller has bought an uninhabitable island in Scotland. Apparently a "strong instinctive urge" led him to buy the The Lamb island - reduced from Â£75,000 to Â£30,000, so we know the recession has finally hit the island-market, too - because, along with two other islands (Craigleith and Fidra) it is said to mirror the layout of the pyramids at Giza, in Egypt. Which is a nice idea, but bear in mind that its previous owner didn't even set foot on it (rocks make it difficult to land a boat) and you being to wonder if that money might not have been better spent on other nice ideas, like, oh I don't know, a weekend away somewhere, or a really big bunch of flowers.
Anyway, here is a video of Mr Geller doing what he does best: bending a spoon (another nice but pretty pointless idea, I have always thought) - this time, apparently, with the aid of his thumb rather than his mind. But doesn't he look like Cliff Richard?more blog posts
