Race for Life - Trying to beat cancer.

Its that time of year again when women get the chance to get together and raise a bit of money for a brilliant cause. Most areas have races that will be easy to get to, and its only 5k so most people of various fitness levels are able to join. I have a couple of family members that participate and have told me what fun it is, and lets face it we have all been touched by cancer in one way or another at some point in our lives. Have a go or sponsor some one...its worth it. And for us men, there are the Marie Curie races so theres no excuse not to get involved in some way or another.



How to make a omelette

1ST break three eggs into a bowl and a dash of milk plus salt n pepper to taste. whisk the mixture till you cant see egg whites or yolk, putting plenty of air into the mixture. Put a frying pan onto a high heat with a little oil. Once hot turn down heat and add the egg mixture stirring constantly. At this point you can add other ingredients to taste i.e. cheese peppers onions etc. The mixture should come together and you you can finish it off either by flipping with a spatula, turning out onto a heated plate, or do as I do and pop under the grill for a few minutes. This should just finish off the top side.

Money DOES Buy Happiness

This is my opinion (coming from someone that doesn't have any!) You don't have any stress wondering where your next meal will be coming from or how you are going to pay that bill. You can also DO things with money. Think back to your happiest childhood memories and I bet they will be on holiday or of a day out in a theme park etc, all possible if you have the money! Dont get me wrong, one of my happiest memories is of doing something on a budget, but we still needed money to get there! My Mum used to take us on picnics on the beach because she couldn't afford for us to eat in the restaurant/diner, but she still had to have some money to get us there and buy the food! So the next time someone tells you money cant buy you happiness.....tell them they are lying as I always have a smile on my face when I have a pocket full of cash !!

The Reader

I watched this film called the Reader and it was absolutely amazing! Not only do you get to see Kate Winslet naked, you also get to see some great acting aswell ! I say this hoping that people don't misunderstand this post, I do not condone what happened during WWII but the fantastic acting by Kate Winslet actually makes you feel sorry for a prison guard at Auschwitz! ( which I never thought could be possible) I wont say any more as I dont want to ruin the film, but it is a must see.

Credit Crunch Valentine

OMFG this 7p card the quickest way to a divorce or have ASDA come up with an amazing credit crunch marketing tool? You decide !!

Prince William in the Falklands

It is a very tense time at the moment for the Falkland Islands so to announce that the future King of Great Britain and the Commonwealth is coming over to train for six weeks, I do understand the frustration of the Argentinians. But the situation has nothing to do with current tensions. Prince William was always going to serve and train over there and as for the new type 45 destroyer Dauntless going over, I think this is simply so the Prince has a little luxury to train in and nothing more, On the other hand I do see how this must look to the people of Argentina, but hope that most will see that it was just a diplomatic blooper and not an act of aggression. I hope that GB and Argentina can learn to have a great relationship as we both have alot to offer each other.
