Welcome to the August 12, 2008 edition of carnival of trash. I was so worried I would be a Billy No Mates, but it’s amazing how many wonderful people have joined in with the second Carnival of trash! I’m so delighted to see you here, joining in the fun and talking a load of old rubbish. So, dear readers, take your pick from today’s Carnival posts and send us your thoughts.
