Here Today...

First off, I would like to apoloigise to all those who regulary come over to read this blog. With a lot of issues to sort out on the home front I do not have the ability to post anything of any worth at this point in time. I do miss blogging and without going into details, I find myself not even visiting fellow bloggers either. I can not and will not promise a post today or tomorrow.

Today my car is almost a total right off after a back end collision and that has just pushed me to the edge. What I do say is that in the near future I will be back, I just can't deal with what has happened and do it online. I am sorry.

Libertarian Values

This is a rather interesting post by Revellian where he writes of Libertarian values and the American people. I am not in position to speak about American politics but Bobby also offers a political quiz which I scored thus:

Your PERSONAL issues Score is 70%.
Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 50%.

According to your answers, the political group that agrees with you most is...


CENTRISTS espouse a "middle ground" regarding government control of the economy and personal behavior. Depending on the issue, they sometimes favor government intervention and sometimes support individual freedom of choice.

Centrists pride themselves on keeping an open mind,

tend to oppose "political extremes," and emphasize what

they describe as "practical" solutions to problems.

Take the quiz and see where you are on the chart.

Email Images

Self explanatory....
Am sure these will become all the fashion for spoiled moggies worldwide.
Why am I not surprised....
The new playstation game for those in their twilight years....

Just thought I would share some images that came via email today. I have certainly needed a good laugh over the past few weeks and these gave me plenty, then again have a look at this innovative idea..Just what all squirrels require for their nuts.

Why...Why ....Why.....

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?

Why doesn't glue stick to the bottle?

Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection?

Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Whose idea was it to put an 'S' in the word 'Lisp'?

If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?

How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, 'It's all right?' Well, it isn't all right, so why don't we say, 'That hurt, you stupid idiot?'

In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?

Sometimes it hurts: when you forget that a sliding glass door isn't open all the way and you run through it.

Sometimes it makes me happy: to see my children laughing and playing especially at the beach.

Sometimes I listen: to the sounds of the rain falling on my roof at night to help me sleep.

Sometimes I sleep: with my arms and legs wrapped around my pillow.

Sometimes I like to watch: how people act around each other especially in town or at the traffic lights.

Here is what I scored on my first game below.

Good Old Fashioned....

Roast with potatoes and peas, carrot and cauliflower. Toiling over a hot stove all afternoon (not really but it sounded good), cooking up a storm with a piece of beef that had been marinating in red wine with thyme and black peppercorns, I had a brainwave earlier to make a pavlova. Hmm that was a disaster, at the time of typing I debate whether to show you a photo or make another and hope it turns out. I can never get it quite right all the time and this was one of those moments, it was flatter than a nuns chest which made me thankful I didn't have dinner guests. The boys are all for eating it now, minus the whipped cream and whatever topping of fruits I find to decorate it with. The boys had to have a turn of the electric beaters, and it took me back to the days when we would crowd around mother and whine to lick the beaters or have the bowl when she was done. Anyone remember dipping their fingers in and taking a sly taste , the difference here is they just done it right in front of my eyes but I couldn't get mad, it's a part of childhood. Am happy that the boys take a rather enthusiastic approach in the kitchen and are always curious to learn new recipes. They think I am a great cook, they know no different which is all good but they still balk at a lot of vegetables unless you make stew, fried rice or salad, then they don't think to look for them. So many ways to disguise what they say yuk to yet readily eat without realising it is there. I find that good old pumpkin is the easiest to hide, mashed and added to stew/casserole liquid, they have no idea. Am off to improve my culinary skills and attempt another who is game enough to come for dinner?

Sunday Stealing: The Aging Meme

At a certain age women should: realise when they are too old to have babies and also that dressing like a teenager does them no favors if they are over 30.

At a certain age men should: know no matter how hard they try, the younger ones will always see them as lecherous old perves.

When I was a kid I thought I would: grow up, which is difficult.

Now that I am older I wish: I had done a paramedics course.

You know you are too old to party when: You are never too old!

You know you are too young to retire when: you have more spring in your step than your boss who is 20 years younger.

When I was in high school I listened to the music of: KISS, AC/DC and any new pop stuff that was in the 70's and 80's.

Nowadays I find I like the music of: Anything except rap.

On my last birthday I: received a huge bouquet of flowers.

On my next birthday I want to: make snow angels.

The best birthday present I ever got was: the flowers and my first handbag from my dad.

The first time I felt grown up was: when I entered a casino unchallenged at 15.

The last time I felt like a kid was: yesterday.

When I read my first pregnancy test and the manual on how to operate an electric can opener (lol) it changed my life.

Last year was: mediocre, lots of sadness and memories.

Next year I hope: to at least smile when I wake up everyday.

Another Sunday Meme from Sunday Stealing. Many answers I could of put but chose the ones I thought of at first.

Nuns for Sale

A man is driving down a deserted stretch of highway when he notices a sign out of the corner of his eye....It reads:


He thinks this is a figment of his imagination
and drives on without second thought....

Soon he sees another sign which reads:


Suddenly he begins to realize that these signs are for real and drives past a third sign saying:


His curiosity gets the best of him and he pulls into the drive. On the far side of the parking lot is a stone building with a small sign next to the door reading:


He climbs the steps and rings the bell. The door is answered by a nun in a long black habit who asks, 'What may we do for you my son?'

He answers, 'I saw your signs along the highway and was interested in possibly doing business....'

'Very well my son. Please follow me.' He is led through many winding passages and is soon quite disoriented. The nun stops at a closed door and tells the man, 'Please knock on this door.'

He does so and another nun in a long habit, holding a tin cup answers the door... This nun instructs, 'Please place $100 in the cup then go through the large wooden door at the end of the hallway.'

He puts $100 in the cup, eagerly trots down the hall and slips through the door pulling it shut behind him.

The door locks, and he finds himself back in the parking lot facing another sign:

This is a dedication to someone special and just because...I like the song, I love the music, and Patrick Swayze is hot! Am waiting to see the comments...I don't care how many times this movie is made fun of, it will always be a favorite of mine.

Heroes in Death

Murder, it what you will. These three directly caused the deaths of 200 people and so many others suffered horrendous injuries when they chose to detonate a bomb in Bali all in the name of Jemmaah Islamiyah. Yet when or should I say IF, these three are executed, they promise retribution. Hypothetically if the Bali bombings never occurred, peoples of the world would still be held to ransom and made to pay in one way or another when they go on preaching jihad.

He has stated his belief that Indonesia must adhere to Sharia law and has renewed his calls for an Islamic state in Indonesia. [12]

"There is no nobler life than to die as a martyr for jihad. None. The highest deed in Islam is Jihad. If we commit to Jihad, we can neglect other deeds, even fasting and prayer".

In a speech following the Bali attacks Bashir stated,' I support Osama bin Laden's struggle because his is the true struggle to uphold Islam.'[10]. the Indonesian islamic cleric is portrayed strongly in Western media as an extreme thinker who inspires deadly actions [11], however to Bashir the true terrorists are America and Israel.

The terrorism activities wont stop regardless of whether or not Samudra, Mukhlas and Amrozi are executed. I do care about executions, a grey area where there has been innocent peoples put to death but these three will get less than what they deserve. In death they will be heroes, the world doesn't need heroes like these.

A load of Chicken Sh*t

This is nothing new, we have been using chicken shit for ages in pots and plants, being careful not to use too much as it can burn your plants. According to this, the use of chicken poop as a fertilizer is making a comeback with farmers as the costs of commercial fertilizers is rising. This is however not making happy campers with all....

An increased use of poultry litter as farm fertilizer can lead to high concentrations of phosphorus in surface run-off, potentially contaminating bodies of surface water, said Bill Hargrove, director of the Kansas Centre for Agricultural Resources and the Environment (KCARE).

Indeed, Oklahoma has sued poultry producers over what it says is an excess of chicken litter spread as fertilizer that is polluting the state's watershed.

The Poultry Community Council has argued that poultry litter is a valuable economic commodity for farmers and that any contamination of waterways is comparable to areas where the chicken waste is not used.

A federal judge on Monday rejected Oklahoma's request for an injunction against spreading chicken litter, though the lawsuit remains ongoing.

So if there is an abundance of pooper scoopers out there, get some of them unemployed dole bludgers off their ass and shovel shit, at least you are making an honest dollar.

Little Gordon

Isn't this just the cutest little boy, he looks almost angelic like. Yet, he has the mouth of a sewer rat and manners you would expect to find in the pub. If you care to have a look at this 41 second video, you will see how Little Gordon addresses his mother after she has made his lunch for school. While you are there have a quick peek at some of the comments.

He's doing a Gordon Ramsey impersonation.
Get out of your fucking Cave and wake up the world.
He's not a brat, he's an actor - And a rather decent one for his age and the context.

hahahahaha funny stuff :P

if i was that little pricks father he would be IN the wall behind him and that sandwich would be shoved down his mouth HOLE! i cant believe people actually find this funny its a load of bullshit! that kid needs a good smack across the ass with a belt.

Myself I do not find this even mildly amusing. Yes he may be doing a take on Gordon Ramsey but he is STILL only a child. Kids have been seen swearing in movies and television shows for decades now and it might be just me but I find nothing funny about a 9 year old swearing his guts out and abusing his mother. You will hear children swearing in the playground and at home, even when they are out and about in public but I just can't see why people are laughing at this at all. For me, if they find this hilarious, says a lot about their standards. There are more videos showing him going off at the canteen ladies. All this is supposed to help educate the world about healthy eating habits and bad food services. Gordon Ramsey the older one, is an adult, am sure he would not be seen to swear like he does in front of children, his television shows are not meant for kids to view anyway. Am i just old fashioned and a stick in the mud or do others find this kind of thing acceptable?
