just saying 'hi'

I'm sorry if i have been absent for a while, technology is outstripping me at a helluva rate, GS is tweeting (which I don't 'get'), facebook is a bunch of adverts and stinky links, Steam is a series of slow loads followed by constant crashes and worst of all the add-on's for Skyrim aren't on the PS3 yet. And I'm bloody cold.

little orange circles

There's a little orange circle up there on the right with an envelope in it, I click away at it like a demented woodpecker but to no avail.

What's it's purpose? Space-filler?

a little PS

With reference to the comments to my last blog, I can't comment myself as the comment button isn't working so here are my responses, sorry about GS's shortcomings....they appear to be proliferating. :roll:

lockstock is cool and has completed fallout 3 and is immersing himself in online gaming at the moment, as for the word, Lance, it starts with a four-letter word which is what our sun is and the second part is a 5 letter word which rhymes with something rude but sounds a little like box, lol

I haven't posted a blog for ages!!!

Well, there you go.

Oh btw; playing HAWX, KZII, CODs 4 & 5 and Race driver, Grid -all on line, at the mo.

If you see me, aim off please and Zyxe, if you are still there , dust off your PS3 and accept your friends requests. Gerry I don't bother with warhawk, I'm not big on 3rd Person shooters and sorry if I don't seem to accept all your invites, sometimes my console is running while I am watching TeeVee.

Summer is coming and the scooter is running beautifully, still shocking drivers when I pass them at 95...on a scooter lol.

keep on truckin'.

Cut & Paste

I will probably get my wrist slapped for this from the GS crew but it has to be said, please cut, paste and spread the word;

Recently, Royal Marines in Iraq, wrote to S*****cks because they wanted to let them know how much they liked their coffees, and to request that they send some of it to the troops there. S*****cks replied, telling the Marines thank you for their support of their business, but that S*****cks does not support the war, nor anyone in it, and that t hey would not send the troops their brand of coffee.

So as not to offend S*****cks, maybe we should support them by NOT buying any of their products! I feel we should get this out in the open. I know this war might not be very popular with some folks, but that doesn't mean we don't support the boys on the ground, fighting street-to-street and, house-to-house.

If you feel the same as I do then pass this along. Thanks very much for your support. I know you'll all be there again when I deploy once more.

Also, don't forget that when the Twin Trade Towers were hit, the fire fighters and rescue workers went to S*****cks because it was close by for water for the survivors and workers, and S******cks CHARGED THEM!


There are 227 S*****cks stores across the UK, and there's no doubt that our soldiers would get the s ame response from this company, so let us do our bit and boycott S*****cks to show them how despicable their actions are.

GS's ploy to increase blogging

If anybody who commented in my last blog (the crowd was er, minimal) is thinking how unsociable I am for not replying it seems that although I can comment in other peoples blogs I am unable to comment in my own making the sobs of gratitude for being noticed inaudible, so here it is just for you guys;

Thankyou thankyou thankyou for stoking my ego, I will send invites to my union as soon as it is up and running... one day, I promise.

Or possibly not.

I do not like this new layout, it makes my, once epic 'Sin City' header look small and, well, Sin-free. I am still trying to work out some of the links from the old set-up and I have to start all over again. It's lucky that I don't join in any forums any more (they do get a little repetitive, what with newbugs joining and asking the same old questions you have heard for years...What's your favourite colour?...eww...blue?? I like magnolia..etc, ad infinitum.

Sorry, am I dribbling? Anyhow i have created a facebook page...and ignored it lol, bought myself GTA4 and lost all my friends while playing it constantly..the graphics are a treat but they still can't work out the physics of a motorbike and the scooters are naff as usual. I took 'er indoors to see the Dark Knight film, she thoroughly enjoyed it and having already made her sit through Ironman which she also loved, I think I am brainwashing her back to her teens..like me lol. Her only trouble is motion-sickness when gaming, i have found this in a few people and it must be awful, Imagine no gaming faster than Sudoku! Muy eek-some indeed.

Anyhoo, I can smell bacon sandwiches, must go. ttfn


The big 5-OH !!

I is remarkably older than yous all.

And now I am older and more grown up I promise to get the hang of the controls in Bad Company without



How A Consultancy can Improve your Organisation

Last week, we took some friends to a new restaurant, 'Steve's Place,' and noticed that the waiter who took our order carried a spoon in his shirt pocket. It seemed a little strange. When the busboy brought our water and utensils, I observed that he also had a spoon in his shirt pocket. Then I looked around and saw that all the staff had spoons in their pockets.

When the waiter came back to serve our soup I inquired, "Why the spoon?"

"Well," he explained, "the restaurant's owner hired Andersen Consulting to revamp all of our processes. After several months of analysis, they concluded that the spoon was the most frequently dropped utensil. It represents a drop frequency of approximately 3 spoons per table per hour. If our personnel are better prepared, we can reduce the number of trips back to the kitchen and save 15 man-hours per shift."

As luck would have it, I dropped my spoon and he replaced it with his spare. "I'll get another spoon next time I go to the kitchen instead of making an extra trip to get it right now."

I was impressed. I also noticed that there was a string hanging out of the waiter's fly. Looking around, I saw that all of the waiters had the same string hanging from their flies.

So, before he walked off, I asked the waiter, "Excuse me, but can you tell me why you have that string right there?"

"Oh, certainly!" Lowering his voice, he said, "Not everyone is so observant. That consulting firm I mentioned also learned that we can save time in the restroom. By tying this string to the tip of our you-know-what, we can pull it out without touching it and eliminate the need to wash our hands, shortening the time spent in the restroom by 76.39%".

I asked quietly, "After you get it out, how do you put it back?"

"Well," he whispered, "I don't know about the others, but I use the spoon".
