Have a read about a pill this week that gets you fit without leaving your chair.. What I think they mean is that it keeps your weight down without any exercise but I,m sure it does not make you FIT. Apparently this drug actually burns fat. I hardly think you can run a marathon without training whether you take this drug or not!
In this country we pay a lot for our 4G mobile phone service. Average availability is 65% which puts us behind Peru, Estonia, Latvia and India. How we cant do better in a small country like this baffles me.
This year British parents will fund 26% of the purchase of homes, bought for their children, to the tune of £6.5 up from £5 billion last year. A sympton of our broken housing market!
The song “Careless Whisper” by George Michael has just been voted the most popular song ever knocking John Lennon’s “Imagine” off the top spot. Both fantastic songs.
Adele now has four of the top 10. Incidently Adele made £40 million last year making her worth £125Million. Not bad at 28 but she really is a brilliant performer.
So Cheryl Tweedy, formerly of “Girls Aloud” and Liam Payne of “One Direction” have decided to call their new baby “Bear” Thats fine for a baby but when they go to school or become an adult are they going to be happy. I doubt it somehow. Bear Payne, a name fraught with danger in the future.
HUMOUR The largest lizard in Australia can run as fast as Usain Bolt. I hope it;s not poisonous!
The world’s largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton is called Sue. That’s funny , so was my ex-wife. need I say more.
The expression “you have a turd in your teeth ” was a common insult in 17th century England.
At the 1928 Olmpics oarsman Henry Pearce stopped to let a family of ducks cross his lane and still went on to win the gold medal. Can you see them doing that now?
I love words especially words that sound unusual so I’m going to try to come up with 3 every week. Words this week are:-
bamboozle-meaning to confuse or puzzle.
kibosh-To put an end to.
shenanigans-nonsense, mischief or trickery.
Finally and I deliberately left it to last is the election campaign in the uk.
Our present Prime MInister is running an interesting campaign which appears to be that she will be the least worst between her and Jeremy Corbyn. I suppose it’s a bit like in the US except the worst there seems to have got in. Although he has done very liittle in his first 100 days. Policies in our election seem to gone out of the window, all the tactics are is that you call the other leader.
Its Friday pm here and we had an election yesterday. It seems that the UKIP party has been totally radicated, which is excellent news. The Labour Party has done badly which is totally unsurprising under a leader who is determined to lead his party into the wilderness. The Conservatives have done well in Scotland against the old Labour Party (now called the SNP) In fact the Conservatives have done well generally. So It looks as if we are to have 5 years of the “The Grey Woman” who will be now telling us how well she has negotited a Brexit deal. Whether she has or not!
And what about the Lib-Dems. Well what about them, indeed!
