A Virtual beginning, a first date and Passion, Two poems for Valentines Day

 Unreal Man


He said, stand back
won’t put upon
your shoulders are not
broad or strong
My problems are my own you see
and you can’t take that weight for me!

So here’s the truth
you need to know
the perfect man I’m not
and so
I’ll tell you now ‘fore it’s to late
And you will think I’m not so great

She shouted mate you’re
not alone,
we all have faults
we call our own
and don’t you think I’ll change my mind

a nicer man I couldn’t find

So for coffee
not a date they went
so she could see quite
what he meant
but Essex girls they are quite dumb
as he walked away she thought…..

 

                                                     Nice Bum!

 

 

Waiting


You reach across and here I am
Waiting.
You kiss my hair, my face, my lips
you soothe my skin with fingertips
I feel your hand you brush my thigh
your breath comes fast you start to try
Controlling.
You reach inside I feel your weight
with passions dawn you stop – to late
you shiver as I touch your skin
your lips meet mine your tongue within
Seeking.
We move together our rhythm flows
faster now your heartbeat goes
the end it comes you groan, I sigh,
I feel your hand upon my thigh …..
                                                        waiting ….!

Keeping Christmas – part 2

  

PhotobucketAccording to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December. 

Female reindeer retain their antlers till

after they give birth  in the spring.

Therefore, according to EVERY historical rendition 

depicting Santa’s reindeer,

EVERY single one of them,

from Rudolph to Blitzen,

had to be a …. girl.

  

We should’ve known… ONLY women would be able to drag 

 a fat-ass man, in a red velvet suit,

all around the world, 

 in one night and NOT get lost.

(or ask directions) 

Photobucket

On a serious note

(and trust me that only happens about …. twice a year for me) 

Christmas means a lot of different things to different people. Today when money seems to be no object or at least credit cards are in abundance. The real reason for Christmas seems to be lost, 

  

My ex used to say ( he still says it but I no longer have to listen!) 

Christmas is a time of extremes, If you’re rich you, feel richer, poor, poorer, lonely lonelier, happy, happier,

( you getting the drift here, or do I need to go on?) 

  

so my bit of seriousness is about to come up now…….. 

  

Keeping Christmas 

Are you willing… 

  • to forget what you have done for other people, and to remember what other people have done for you;

  • to ignore what the world owes you, and to think what you owe the world;

  • to put your rights in the background, and your duties in the middle distance, and your chances to do a little more than your duty in the foreground;

  • to see that men and women are just as real as you are, and try to look behind their faces to their hearts, hungry for joy;

  • to own up to the fact that probably the only good reason for your existence is not what you are going to get out of life, but what you are going to give to life;

  • to close your book of complaints against the management of the universe, and look around you for a place where you can sow a few seeds of happiness.

Are you willing to do these things even for a day? Then you can keep Christmas.

Are you willing…

  • to stoop down and consider the needs and desires of little children;

  • to remember the weakness and loneliness of people growing old;

  • to stop asking how much your friends love you, and ask yourself whether you love them enough;

  • to bear in mind the things that other people have to bear in their hearts;

  • to try to understand what those who live in the same home with you really want, without waiting for them to tell you;

  • to trim your lamp so that it will give more light and less smoke, and to carry it in front so that your shadow will fall behind you;

  • to make a grave for your ugly thoughts, and a garden for your kindly feelings, with the gate open—

Are you willing to do these things, even for a day? Then you can keep Christmas.

Are you willing…

  • to believe that love is the strongest thing in the world—

  • stronger than hate, stronger than evil, stronger than death—

  • and that the blessed life which began in Bethlehem nineteen hundred years ago is the image 

    and brightness of the Eternal Love?

Then you can keep Christmas.

And if you can keep it for a day, why not always?

But you can never keep it alone. 

                                       Henry Van Dyke

  

So Have a 

Blinding Christmas 

and a 

Staggeringly 

good New Year

Hallow E’ en

redline

It’s all hallows night

And all through the house

Not a creature was stirring

Not even a mouse

>> Scarey Stuff<<

 

When up through the floorboards 

There came a mad sound

T’was Stu with his shovel

Him digging the ground

 

Beside him was Delboy

Playing guitars in the air

His face all aglowing

Matched his streaky blond hair!

Scarey Stuff 

And Gee was there too

Just dressed in his towel

Helped Stu with the digging

With his average sized trowel

 

And they looked round the basement

To see how many holes

Were there for the filling

With unwary souls!

Photobucket

There’s one there for Tracey

It’s long and it’s thin

And one slightly bigger

To put Chele in!

>>Funny Stuff<< 

click here this ghost won’t work!

And Snoopz has her own

It’s wider up top

And Mim is beside her

Just give her the chop!

                                                                                                               

The holes dug for Mandy

But the three of them cursed

And she laughed as she ran

You’ll have to catch her first!

redline

Most of these people from spaces have gone

But their ghosts still linger behind

But study first ghost your eyes light upon

Twice click to see what you find!

Then click last ghost, for more kinds of fun

Move curser, He’ll laugh while he’s on the run

And Remember…..

Be careful what you drink

And Never ……ever…..

New desktop – Great video – MotoGP – House sale

 

desktop (2)

I thought I’d give you a look at my new desktop picture, I’m showing you because I wanted to put on a video of the second largest aquarium in the world! But nasty little spaces won’t allow me to, not the original nor the one posted on YouTube, because of that nasty little Javascript thingy!! Damn!

So I’ll have to just post a link and hope the picture entices you to take a look! 

“The main tank, in the picture, called the "Kuroshio Sea" holds 7,500-cubic meters (1,981,290 gallons) of water and features the world’s second largest acrylic glass panel, measuring 8.2 mtrs by 22.5 mtrs with a thickness of 60 cms. Whale sharks and manta rays are kept amongst many other fish species in the main tank.”

The fish you can see in this picture, Giant Manta Ray

Whale-Shark and diver3 whale sharks, youngsters, I suspect, as they grow to 30 mtrs, Yellow tails, Manta, Sting Ray, Thresher shark, Sergeant Major Fish, Spotted Rays, Jacks and a lot I don’t know the names of. Not forgetting the well known but lesser spotted, Homo Rubbery Scubias

On the video, you’ll see a LOT more! There’s never be a moment when you’d see all this in one go…….. just wouldn’t happen, not in my wildest dreams, and trust me I have some wild dreams! This would be Nirvana, or El Dorado and Atlantis all rolled into one! But I have seen/dived with quite a lot of these, Mantas, Whale shark, sharks, Rays Jacks, Tuna to name but a few. This video gives you an idea what it would be like

When you think of what we are doing to our planet, it’s resources and wildlife, THIS is what we a slowly destroying, for instance nearly 5,000,000 (yes, I do mean million) sharks are killed each year, along with whales, dolphins, turtles, and the list goes on…. and on. It just has to stop!

  Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium (Let the video fully load, ie: press play then pause, let it load, then play again otherwise it can be a bit jumpy. Beautiful music by Barcelona – “Please Don’t Go”)

Donnington

MotoGP Group in action in DoningtonManaged to get home in time to see the MotoGP from Donnington on Sunday, I’ve missed most of the other races because of work. So was looking forward to catching the British Grand Prix. 

With rain threatening to wash the track, not making the decision any easier whether or not to put on wet weather tyres,  it promised to be a good race – and I wasn’t disappointed. Early leader, Elias, and Jorge Lorenzo, crashed and burned, (or at least sparked!) after touching, the slippery white rumble strip. The Doctor, Valentino Rossi, was in the lead when on the 19th lap, the bike slid out from under him, luckily neither he nor the bike seriously hurt, he picked it up and battled back to finish 5th, just pipping Toseland into 6th!  Leaving Dovizioso the winner.

These are such cool photos!

And Finally

Yes AND FINALLY, some one’s made an offer on my house!

Had 3 viewers yesterday, after the Grand Prix was finished, the second viewer here for a second time, made me an offer just £5000 below asking price. Which is pretty good in these times, they have to sell their homes (they have one each, but don’t have to sell both) so it’s still all in the lap of the gods!

The third viewer, also made an offer, but having asked me at the time “in light of all the work that needs doing downstairs ……. “ I wasn’t expecting a very good one! The estate agent phoned this morning, the offer was £30,000 below asking price – I’m too much of a lady to repeat verbatim, what I said to the estate agent but it was something like “ You’re having a little joke with me aren’t you!”

Oh the work that needs doing downstairs? It needs a handbasin in the downstairs loo,

at the very most £200 worth!!

So now I just have to go find somewhere to live ………

Anyone got a spare room?

 

Breaking News!! Another offer (as of 1700hrs) – the same as the first, but with no chain – nothing to sell!

NOW that’s what you call London Buses!
