Autumn is certainly here and winter is approaching but…………….. Hurricane Michael has been causing havoc in America and storm Callum has brought floods to the UK, yet the south of England has had their hottest Oct . day ever. So who knows what we are going to get when winter really starts!
I heard a really interesting story from a friend this week.
A friend of her late mother was a housekeeper in a stately home in this area of England. She was asked what she wanted as a leaving present on her impending retirement. She said “Well I have always loved one of the pictures in the library. That would be a lovely reminder of my time here” The lady of the house gulped but said “of course my dear, we will be delighted to give you that as a momento of your time here.”
And so the painting was handed over on her retirement. The old housekeeper wasn’t aware of this but the painting was by Canaletto , the famous Venetian artist and was worth several hundred thousand pounds.
A woman was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage for attempting to use a melon to break into a shop. Very strange!
Went to see “a Star is Born” Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga were brilliant in it. But I was disappointed with the music and I thought the plot was very thin. I loved the previous version with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. So my expectations were probably unfairly high.
HUMOUR—– Lenin spoke English with an Irish accent.
The world’s longest sausage was 39 miles long.
Breathing air in New Delhi is the equivalent to smoking 45 cigarettes.
The ancient Greeks cured hangovers by wrapping their heads in cabbage leaves.
Melania Trump claims she is the most bullied person in the world. Well as she surely can’t actually love Donald she must have married him for his money and power. Or perhaps its just because she is married to an idiot!
Apparently there is a big argument going on in England whether it is correct when having a scone to put jam on it first then clotted cream (the Cornish way) or the cream then jam (the Devon way). And me personally I dont give a damn1
Apparently the average person will recognise 5,000 people.
Scientists have found that sleepness nights will drive down the level of testosterone in a man. It doesn’t actually take a scientist to figure out that you dont perform as well if you are knackered. How stupid.
Back to one of my favourite subjects , Obesity. The number of 10-11 children who are obese has risen from 31.6% to 34.3% in a year. When will politicians and health experts stop talking and actually take some action!!!!!!!
We have had another Royal Wedding in England this week. A lesser known Princess called Eugenie married some commoner. They tried to out do Harry and Meghan but this was a Championship wedding rather than a Premiership one.
