Was woken this morning by a distinct knocking on my door. I went  to the bedroom window overlooking the back door only to see that no one was there. My first thought was of the old superstition that says when this happens there will be a death in the family. I learned later today that my Uncle John has passed away.

Bizarre conversation of the day yesterday was with Bez junior, he took a kick to the nadgers on Thursday playing in a cup final for school (they lost). The day after he's swollen and black, which led to a very odd exchange about whether a visit to the doctors was called for as he stuck a bag of frozen broad beans down his pants... ::) The joys of parenthood.

Bricklayer suspended after hiding Rangers shirts in Catholic church

14:47 08 Sep 2008
By Will Mann

An Inverness bricklayer has been suspended by his employers after burying two Glasgow Rangers FC shirts in a Catholic church during building work.

A shirt was found behind the main altar, and another was hidden in a wall.

The bricklayer was employed by contractors UBS Group, who were working on the new build St Columbia's Church in Culloden.

Father James Bell, parish priest, said: "I think it has to be seen as a prank. The Catholic Church is very tolerant and broadminded and we all smiled at it.

"I do not know the gentleman who did it but it has backfired on him in some respects."

I feel sorry for the collateral damage that will probably occur when the witch hunters do go seeking them but joining something as vile as the BNP is surely asking for exactly that sort of trouble. A very good reason to not partake in something so rotten. Personal privacy is one thing. Hiding something evil is another.

Firstly, I'm pished! so take everything I say with a large pinch of sodium bicarbonate but political affiliation/membership is as much a private affair as your sexual orientation, faith, ideology etc. unless you feel happy to make it a matter of pubic record. Are you happy to have your own life laid bare? I'm sure there are many things about yourself which you'd rather not be brought into the public domain. However distasteful you may find these individuals political beliefs they have a right to hold them and vote accordingly. We still live in a democracy. Your vote is secret, why shouldn't thiers be?

There is a wider issue here (and perhaps this is not the time or place to debate it but...) the success of the BNP is (in my estimation) due in no small part to the fact that the issues of Immigration and Identity are not openly talked about or treated with any kind of sympathy or understanding for theexperience and genuine (even if they are perhaps) ill founded/misguided fears of ordinary people who feel threatened, disenfranchised and misrepresented by mainstream Politicians. It is the very failure of Politicians to address this issue seriously and engage with people that allows the BNP to flourish. This kind of publicity will only encourage vigilantism, reprisals and further increase racial tensions and hatred. Is that really what you want to see?

I must say - and I find it slightly bizarre, appropriately enough - when I'm in the zone of, say, 5-8 pints it tends to be a rich source for many of my best creative ideas.  Once on a bus home a few years ago one Friday night after about 6 beers I suddenly and spontaneously had a brilliant idea for a short screenplay, so I worked on it for a few weeks, entered it into a competition that attracts hundreds of entries from around the world and was amazed when it wound up as a last-16 finalist (the winner was produced and shown at film festivals across the world).  :o

Now (and I'm prematurely letting a little secret out here), in conjunction with a well-established professional screenwriter, I'm developing it into a feature length script...  ;)

Know what you mean about the zone (Its a beautiful but elusive place/state to be! ) , and, funnily enough, I did once come up with a sceenplay for an 80's farce based around a "moment of unemcumbered clarity" Good luck getting your ideas developed and produced.  8)

Doctors in Arizona operated on Rosemary Alvarez after she started feeling numbness in her arm and blurred vision.
Ms Alvarez went to the emergency room twice and had an x-ray, but everything appeared normal.
It was only when doctors took a closer look at a scan that they discovered something very disturbing.
Neurosurgeon Dr Peter Nakaji said: "Once we saw the MRI we realised this is something not good. It's something down in her brain stem which is as deep in the brain as you can be."
Ms Alvarez was taken into the operating room where Dr Nakaji and his colleagues were expecting to remove a tumor.

On a video of the surgery, Dr Nakaji can be heard laughing after he discovered the worm.
He said: "I'm sure this is a very strange response for the people in the operating room.
"But it was because I was so pleased to know that it wasn't going to be something terrible."
Doctors removed the worm and believe Ms Alvarez will not have any long-lasting health problems.
It is not known where she picked up the worm.
Experts said worms can come from eating undercooked pork or spread by people who do not wash their hands after using the bathroom, according to reports.
"It only takes one person who is spreading it constantly to get a lot of people exposed and some of those people are going to go on to develop this problem," Dr Nakaji said.
Ms Alvarez, who is now healthy, said she hopes people learn lessons from her story.
"Wash your hands, wash your hands," she said.

She'd been drinking all day and was too drunk to give a statement to the police last night. A day later no one's quite sure what happened. What a mess  :-\. Also of note is that she got the last police swab kit used on her, meaning that in Harrogate yesterday there were ten reported sexual assaults.  :o

Saw an article about them, Rolls Royce and Bentley at the weekend. The way they are surviving this economic downturn is to make their cars more expensive and more exclusive, making more profit on each one sold, as there'll always be very rich people out there ready to fork out for them.

fecked up Thieves,
Truck load of Bmw's stolen
http://www.rte.ie/news/2009/0427/clonard.html

Around €1m worth of new BMW cars have been stolen in Co Meath.

A gang stole a car transporter late yesterday evening near Kinnegad and drove it to a house that had been under construction near the village of Clonard.

There were 12 new high-powered BMWs on the transporter.


The gang tried to manoeuvre the transporter to the rear of the house.

It is believed they were going to offload the cars over the coming days.

However, the vehicle got stuck, so they drove one car off and then set fire to the others.

The house was also badly damaged in the fire.

Gardaí have appealed for anyone who saw the transporter with the BMWs in the area or anyone who saw anything suspicious over the last number days to contact them.

Yes, on Queensday. The one real National Day we have over here. It is stated it was a conscious act. How he got past so many barriers is beyond me but he clearly was out to hit the bus that was driving our royal family through Apeldoorn.
4 dead and 13 injured of which 5 severe. Most, if not all festivities over here are cancelled. It is a very sad day for us.

Jesus H...

"Every act - a type of caress, a sexual position - with the goal of arousal is permitted and pleases God. During sexual intercourse, married couples can show their love in every way, can offer one another the most sought-after caresses."

Father Knotz believes sex is an important way for a husband and wife to express their love and grow closer to God.

"Married couples celebrate their sacrament, their life with Christ also during sex," he writes

I deal with quite a few Indian colleagues these days.  Today, I spoke to two of them over the phone for the first time as all communication to date has been over email.  The first guy I was sure was a guy, turned out is a woman.  The second, you can guess, I thought was a female turns out to be a bloke. 

I'll need to go back over some old emails and make sure I've not embarrassed myself  :o

There are a couple of confirmed cases at the kids school and one of my staff has been off as well. It's quite possible we've all had it actually as we've all had mild symptoms that, in my case, I just put down to hayfever ::) (Yeah, I know, it was probably hayfever...).

My kids school leaflet basically says "they'll get the flu" and keep them off for a couple of days. And then they'll get better. To be honest swine flu is not much of a problem at all, but as has been said the scary thing is that is that if it really was something serious then we'd have no defense at all.

We sat in another room as someone else was getting the round in, and decided it was neither the time or place for a conversation about past 'events '. So, if you're ever in York and fancy a nice pint and chat with the barman, as he will be familiar to many people still here, and many that have left  >:(

Benefit cheat done but could have claimed more legitimately  :D

A SHOP assistant has appeared in court after trying to cheat the benefits system, unaware she was legitimately entitled to a higher level of state support than she wrongly claimed.

Claire Johnstone admitted wrongly claiming Ã,£140 a week in benefits while working in a garage, but a court heard yesterday that she was actually entitled to Ã,£210 a week in child tax credit The Department of Work and Pensions have ordered Johnstone to pay back Ã,£2246 of the Income Support she had claimed. They also told her she is not entitled to a back-payment of any of the Ã,£3300 she was due.

Johnstone, of Meigle in Perthshire, was granted an absolute discharge at Perth Sheriff Court yesterday.

She admitted knowingly failing to give notification of a change of circumstances, starting a job in a garage, which affected her entitlement to benefit.

The court was told that an audit was carried out on October 8, 2007, and she was found to be claiming Ã,£50 Income Support and Ã,£90 in child tax credits.

Solicitor Mike Tavendale, defending, said: "Somewhat bizarrely, if she had claimed the correct benefit of working tax credit she would have been entitled to receive Ã,£210 a week. So in fact she was Ã,£70 down in what she should have been getting paid. Bizarrely, she is now being required to pay back Ã,£2246 to the Benefits Agency because she shouldn't have been claiming income support. She cannot claim the tax credits she would have been due, retrospectively."

Centenarian desires 23rd husband


Wook Kundor says she feels "lonely" during her husband's absence
A 107-year-old Malaysian woman has said she wants to get married again, for the 23rd time, as she fears her husband wants to leave her, says a report.
When Wook Kundor married four years ago to a man 70 years her junior their wedding photos made regional media.
But now she fears her husband will not return home after completing treatment for drug addiction in Kuala Lumpur.
She told reporters she felt "lonely" without her husband, ahead of the Muslim feast at the end of Ramadan.
'Insecurity'
Wook Kundor, who lives in northern Kuala Terengganu state, said she planned to visit her husband - Muhammad Noor Che Musa - if her neighbours would drive her to the capital, where he is receiving voluntary treatment.
She said she would re-consider her plans if the 37-year-old told her he still had feelings for her.
Speaking to The Star newspaper in Malaysia she said: "Lately, there is this kind of insecurity in me.
"I realise I am an aged woman... My intention to re-marry is to fill my forlornness, and nothing more than that."
Her husband, who used to be her lodger, had previously said it was "God's will" that he fell in love with his wife to be.

Man Pleads To La-Z-Boy DWI
Minnesotan, 62, was arrested for drunkenly driving motorized lounger

OCTOBER 22--A Minnesota man arrested last year for drunkenly driving a motorized La-Z-Boy lounge chair pleaded guilty this week to a DWI charge. Dennis Anderson, 62, was nabbed after driving his chair into a parked car, according to a Proctor Police Department report. A subsequent blood draw showed Anderson's blood alcohol content was .29, more than three times the legal limit. Anderson's customized vehicle, seen in the police evidence photos on the following pages, is powered by an eight horsepower Kohler lawnmower engine, and has a stereo, headlights, a built-in cup holder, and a "Hell Yeah It's Fast" bumper sticker. The ride, however, does not have a seat belt. Anderson, pictured above, controlled the La-Z-Boy via a steering wheel protruding from its seat cushion. The vehicle's headrest was adorned with the logo of the National Hot Rod Association. Following his guilty plea, Anderson was sentenced to 180 days in jail and ordered to pay a $2000 fine. A judge stayed Anderson's jail term in lieu of his successful completion of a two-year supervised probation term. His La-Z-Boy, which Proctor cops seized shortly after Anderson's arrest, will soon be auctioned along with items forfeited by other perps. (8 pages)

Earlier today I was informed that an old school-mate died of a massive heart-attack Friday night, only 44 years old. He was the healthiest man I knew, never smoked, almost didn´t drink, and was always in great shape (you have no garanties...)

He was also a profiled DJ, and he worked in many big clubs all over Europe

He leaves his wife and their 1-year old daughter behind

OKay this is not normally a thread I frequent. Being a creature of reason I can normally put most things down to simple logical explanation but can someone please answer this one for me?

1) I am a Rush fan
2) I scored front row seats for the forthcoming Glasgow Rush gig TODAY.
3) I work in a call centre chasing debt and the very first account our systems hands me today to process has the sum of .... yep you guessed  it ... £21.12

Of all the days, for this to happen to me is just staggering as a coincidence. So much so that I lost the power of rational thought for a good 5 minutes! I confess that on the notion that the universe is working in my favour today I went out and bought a couple of lottery tickets for Saturday. :D  I'm not superstitious... honest.. I think.

Woman dials 999 to report snowman theft in Kent

A woman who dialled 999 to report the theft of a snowman from outside her home has been branded "completely irresponsible" by Kent Police.
The force said the woman, from Chatham, thought the incident required their involvement because she used pound coins for eyes and teaspoons for arms.
During the call the woman said: "It ain't a nice road but you don't expect anybody to nick your snowman."
Kent Police said officers had given her advice on real 999 emergencies.
The force said the call was made at the same time as operators fielded thousands of other phone calls about the heavy snowfall and sub-zero temperatures in the county.

During the conversation she said: "There's been a theft from outside my house.
"I haven't been out to check on him for five hours but I went outside for a fag and he's gone."
When she was asked who had gone, the woman replied: "My snowman. "I thought that with it being icy and there not being anybody about, he'd be safe."
She was then asked whether it was an ornament, and answered: "No, a snowman made of snow, I made him myself.


"It ain't a nice road but you don't expect anybody to nick your snowman."
The operator then told her she had rung an emergency line and she should not be calling it to report the theft of a snowman.
Ch Insp Simon Black said: "This call could have cost someone's life if there was a genuine emergency and they couldn't get through.
"It was completely irresponsible.
"We have spoken to her and advised her what is a 999 call, and this clearly was not."

A woman is suing P Diddy for $1 trillion (£635 billion).

Valerie Joyce Wilson Turks, 31, has filed the suit in Los Angeles Superior Court against the rap mogul, his former girlfriend Kim Porter and Rodney King, the man who was a victim of assault by the Los Angeles Police in 1991.

She also claims that her and Diddy have a son together, Cornelius Wilson, who is now 23.

Turks also alleges that Diddy, real name Sean Combs, caused the 9/11 attacks, put her son in hospital and sold a poker chip belonging to her, which she says was worth "100 zillions of dollars".

According to court papers seen by Radaronline.com Turks is asking for $900 billion (£571.5 billion) in child support and $100 billion (£63.5 billion) in lost income.

In papers she has submitted to the court, Turks wrote: "[Diddy] went through Kim Porter and Rodney King and knocked down the World Trade Center and then they all came and knocked my children down. Set me up to be on disability and disabled my baby. He put my baby in a wheelchair."

She added: "I won a lot of money at the casino in Mississippi and Sean P Diddy Combs has my chip to my money. I want my chip please help me. It's well worth over 100 zillions of dollars."

Turks also applied for a restraining order against Diddy, which a judge has denied. Although Turks is not expected to get very far with her lawsuit, the judge has set a court date of January 31 for the case to be heard.

I should stay up all night, drink shitloads of Jack and wine, and listen to music all morning more often.

I can't remember the last time there were no kids around for so long. And I won't have been apart from Zedskin for this length of time since 2008......  :o :o

What WILL I do with myself?

;D

Does a reservoir need emptying if someone urinates in it?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-13874089

Quote
Some eight million gallons of treated drinking water have been flushed down the drain in the US state of Oregon after a man urinated into a reservoir. Did such a vast amount of water have to be dumped?

"Nobody wants to drink pee, and I don't want to deal with the 100 people who would be unhappy that I'm serving them pee in their water."

Those are the words of David Shaff, a water bureau official in Oregon's biggest city Portland, after flushing away 32 million litres of water.


What about the birds crapping in it?  ???

if your children want to party - let them party :o

"Adam Gibbs attended the party. "They said he killed his parents with a hammer because they wouldn't let him throw a party," he said.

Port St. Lucie Police Capt. Don Kryak added, "He had a party after the homicides took place. It was a merciless killing and brutal, and then the Facebook invitation to have a party, to have your friends and 40 to 60 people come over I think speaks for itself."

No.1 child is cleaning out her car. Good grief, the shocker of the year. Apparently her boyfriend shamed her into doing it. It is bad beyond belief mind. Two carrier bags of rubbish have come out of it so far. Opps no maybe not, the hoover was on for all of 60 seconds.

I only have Ben's cricket stuff to get and it's all done present wise. That is bizarre. They are even all wrapped. My cake is done, I've got my meat. Sent my cards. Got the trimmings down. Been down the woods and have branches soaking in my bath ready for the door wreath.
I'm worried.
