Necessary advertising number 2

How’s about this for a postcard! At the moment I’ve posted around the UK and USA about 150 of these. So if you come across someone screaming with ecstasy it isn’t because of this. Mind you there are some daft people out there. You’ll be pleased to know I’ve a load more to send out but I hope you notice that my spam is sent out by snail mail. I should imagine that most people are fed up to the back teeth of their email and/or blogs being filled with spam. And Twitter’s just as bad, every other tweet is advertising something, begging you to buy this or that and, of course, their product is the bee’s knees.

But, to return to the postcard. I only need one to fall lucky. I may have to send out a further thousand and more, but one day…

Let’s get to today’s trivia c/o

This day in:

1148 Louis VII of France lays siege to Damascus during the Second Crusade. – I don’t mean to trivialize the situation but life does come around again and again.

1901O. Henry is released from prison in Austin, Texas after serving three years for embezzlement from a bank. – What did I say?

2001Simeon Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, the last Tsar of Bulgaria when he was a child, is sworn in as Prime Minister of Bulgaria, becoming the first monarch in history to regain political power through democratic election to a different office. – I wonder if that will ever happen in this country.

Fun time c/o

Old Jones’ nickname
A man moves to a village in Wales and gets talking to an old man from the village.
He asks the old man what his name is, but the old man gets very irate at this point and says:
– See that line of houses over there? I built them all, but do they call me Jones the house builder? Do they hell!
– See those railway lines over there? I laid them all, but do they call me Jones the engineer? Do they hell!
– See those bridges over that river? I built them all, but do they call me Jones the bridge builder? Do they hell!
– But, a long long time ago, I f….d ONE sheep…

Ain’t life grand?
