“Humanitarian” relief: Same old from the dark lord: Open prison: Never a truer word: High-def, low IQ: Never a truer word 2: Cow farts: and ladies sauntering.

Here we are again, back on Blogger, the Weebly site will remain for a few days and will then disappear into the great Blogosphere in the sky. I have downloaded it and will keep it for the lawyers.
Cold and dark at the Castle this Saturday morn, I am hoping to have a nice quiet relaxing weekend; well you have to look on the bright side.

Something I have missed over the last year or so is posting music videos, so to kick orf here are the Pythons: well Easter is coming up.

Sick and tired of Libya, but it seems that Piss Poor Policy Dave C is pressing ahead with his “invasion” plans, although it is disguised as “humanitarian relief”.

According to the Torygraph- Sources confirmed that The Black Watch, 3rd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Scotland, had been placed on heightened readiness, prepared to deploy to North Africa at 24 hours’ notice.
The 600-strong infantry unit returned from Afghanistan in late 2009 and is based at Fort George near Inverness. “They’re ready, just in case,” said a source.

The Ministry of Defence insisted that the battalion was prepared for humanitarian relief operations, not combat.

Yeah right, and we can always believe what PPP Dave says………can’t we?






Meanwhile another of the multi millionaires Coalition club is being unashamed

The new dark lord and reptilian alien in disguise George (I’m only in it for the money)
Osborne will be "unashamedly pro-growth" when he dumps on us from a great height in “his” budget later this month.
He will tell Conservatives in Cardiff it (the budget) will break down the barriers that stop Britain getting back on its feet.
Firms will be offered reduced business rates, simplified planning rules and less regulation at a total cost to the Treasury of £100m over the next four years.
The new dark lord will announce that 10 new enterprise zones will be set up in England in his Budget on 23 March.
Knob-head alien will tell party members that said new enterprise zones will be established in areas of England that have been hit hard by the economic downturn - mainly in parts of the Midlands and the North.
The coalition government's autumn Spending Review outlined plans to cut about £80bn by 2015.


Super: didn’t work under Thatcher or Major, maybe third time lucky? Or maybe not.




 
A New Zealand prison became the victim of a break-in.
Police said Saturday that thieves had broken into the prison at New Plymouth, on the west coast of the North Island, just before midnight and stolen a large plasma television.
"If any members of the public saw anyone carrying a big TV at that time of night, or heard or saw anything in the area of the prison, let police know," Sergeant Thomas McIntyre said.
The New Plymouth Prison is the oldest operating jail in New Zealand, having been in continuous use since the 1860s when it was converted from an army hospital.

Inside job? And yes that actually is the nick in the photo.





 
The spokesman for a U.S. burger joint that has the catchphrase "taste worth dying for" has died.
Blair River, the 29-year-old, 575-pound pitchman for Heart Attack Grill, died Tuesday, the restaurant's owner, Jon Basso, told QMI Agency.
Basso said River died from complications due to pneumonia.
"The Heart Attack Grill is continually accused of glorifying obesity. What we actually do is glorify the freedoms we have as Americans to lead our lives in any way we choose, even if that path is destructive," Basso said.
The menu also includes a butterfat shake, flatliner fries deep fried in pure lard, and candy cigarettes.
The waitresses dress as nurses and the restaurant promises if you weigh more than 350 lbs., you can eat for free.

No such thing as a free lunch.





 
Millions of Britons mistakenly think they are watching high definition television even though they aren't using the right equipment, a study has found.
Despite spending an average of £500 on flat-screen 'HD-ready' TVs, many viewers do not realise they also need a special set-top box or a Blu-ray DVD player to unlock the ultra-sharp pictures.
More than 6million are unwittingly missing out on the high definition revolution, the figures from the British Video Association (BVA) suggest.
The research, based on a poll of 9,500 viewers, showed that 30 per cent thought they could watch high definition programmes or Blu-ray discs at home.
It then revealed, however, that almost half of those who believed they were watching in HD had not actually connected the necessary player or set-top box.

Why am I not surprised…….




 
A church minister has had his computer pinched while typing up a sermon on the 8th Commandment: thou shalt not steal.
The laptop was stolen from Salvation Army officer Major Andrew Diaper-Clausen’s office in his church in Bath.
He said: “I’d mentioned victims of crime, not knowing it would be me.”
C'est La Vie




 
Cans filled with the aroma of cow farts are proving a big hit with shoppers - despite costing £5 a tin.
Tins filled with the air sucked out of an ageing wooden stable, straw lined and filled with gas producing cattle has become an instant hit after it went on sale in Germany.
Managers of the 'Countryside air to go' project say their clients are mainly country people who have moved to the city and want to be reminded of home.
The cans cost £5 a pop and can be ordered from the web site www.stallduft.de
One advert boasts: 'Simply put your nose to the tin and peel back the lid for the authentic smell of the country'.
Designer Daniela Dorrer from the village of Adlkofen in Bavaria in Germany said: 'We hope to make people who miss the countryside happy and remind them of home.
'We are planning other smells such as horse, straw, pigs and manure. But most people miss the smell of the cows in the country, not really surprising as much of the smell is from cows.' 
Cows' farting and burping have even been accused of causing global warming problems.
Just one cow gives off enough harmful methane gas in a single day to fill around 400 litre bottles, which is really bad for the environment, say experts

But don’t have a fag while you are sniffing.


 
And finally:

More ladies sauntering (surprised the ladies haven’t demanded Gentlemen strolling)




 



And today’s thought: If you think nobody cares . . . try missing a couple of payments.

Just to be on the safe side Welshcakes:)

The joys of modern life all this new technology, "they" don't give enough explanations when they flog these things.

And an answer to your comment on Wobbly Weeebly which did fall down-I have been having terrible problems since I started using it-I don't know if it was my laptop, the browser or their software but it kept freezing, crashing, losing posts or refusing to accept posts, I did persevere for a year but even Dei has his limits:)
