Below is a video of it, and the full specification.

I then became disillusioned with Wordpress and moved back to Blogger, only this time I was determined not to lose my readers for a third time so I registered ampers.me.uk for my blogging. This way I can chop and change as much as I like but my address will always remain the same. This is worth £2,95 a year, believe me!
I now have readers, since last July, in 105 different countries, here they are as I obtained the list from Google Analytics:
Later, a policeman comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you; I'm doing community service this week.' The policeman was happy and left the shop. The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen doughnuts waiting for him at his door.

The waiter will notice it, and mention it to the manager.
If they ask you why you are making notes, say very distinctly, you are making notes for yourself, it is nothing to do with the newspaper. (make sure you say "the" newspaper and not "a" newspaper).
You should get excellent service and may even get a brandy afterwards, "on the house".
It works for me...
Costing £850 million each, they meet the needs of the 21st century and comply with the very latest employment, equality, health & safety and human rights laws.
The new user-friendly crow's nest comes equipped with wheelchair access. Live ammunition has been replaced with paintballs to reduce the risk of anyone getting hurt and to cut down on the number of compensation claims. Stress counsellors and lawyers will be on duty 24hrs a day and each ship will have its on-board industrial tribunal.

Your next high-end smartphone has far more horsepower than you’ll need on a phone, and more than enough for a laptop. So we’ve brought Android together with Ubuntu, the world’s favourite free operating system, to give you a full productivity desktop that fits in your pocket. Android for the phone experience, Ubuntu for the desktop, all on one device, running at the same time.
As much as I detest all three main parties, the following pleased me, if only to see Ed Balls reaction!

Hans, a middle-aged German tourist on his first visit to Orlando , Florida , finds the red light district and enters a large brothel. The madam asks him to be seated and sends over a young lady to entertain him.
They sit and talk, frolic a little, giggle a bit, drink a bit, and she sits on his lap. He whispers in her ear and she gasps and runs away! Seeing this, the madam sends over a more experienced lady to entertain the gentleman.
They sit and talk, frolic a little, giggle a bit, drink a bit, and she sits on his lap. He whispers in her ear, and she too screams, "No!" and walks quickly away.
|Gerard Batten is paid the same salary as a UK Westminster MP at £64,766 per annum.
A compulsory contribution of 11% is taken for the UK Parliamentary Pension Scheme.|
As a re-elected MEP in June 2009 he had the option of taking the increased salary of €91,983.72 per annum (about £83,622) to stay on the old salary scale. The new salary was compulsory for new MEPs but optional for returning MEPs. The decision of returning MEPs to choose either option is irrevocable under the rules.
Gerard Batten opted to remain on the old lower salary saying, “in a time of economic crisis when many of my constituents are in fear of losing their jobs, and when politicians’ reputations have never been lower, I did not feel it would be justified to take an increase in salary of almost £19,000 per annum."

This is a most frightening article and, as I know the author, I believe every word he writes. I can't recommend enough that you read his full article.
J P Floru: The Falklands are small fry compared to AntarcticaThe Falklands are small fry compared to Antarctica. Antarctica hides vast mineral deposits under its icy carpet and its continental shelf. Emotional and human interest keeps the Falklands in the news, while far more important Antarctica is quietly forgotten in the UK. This is strange, as we have the oldest claim on its territory. At present, Antarctica belongs to nobody, even though seven countries claim parts of it. The claims of Britain, Chile and Argentina overlap and include the most hospitable part of it: the Antarctic Peninsula

Excellence can be obtained if you:
- Care more than others think is wise
- Risk more than others think is safe
- Dream more than others think is practical
- Expect more than others think is possible
My second was by Calvin Coolidge 30th president of US (1872 - 1933)
Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence.
Talent will not;
nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not;
unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not;
the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

I am conscious that I might be overdoing it with videos and politics. When I started this blog many years ago it was for all sorts of eclectic subjects, from humour, through strategies for success, to interesting snippets gleamed from here and there.
Now it is politics, but we are in troubled times, and it is so important for people to realise this fact.
The Royla Mint must know something that we are not aware of yet. They have released a £5 coin. The interesting fact here is they have an engraving of the Titanic on one side. Are they trying to warn us about something?
But to Nigel Farage's speech in the EU video...
However, this 27 minute video can be counted as one of the greatest speeches I have heard for many a year.

The following is an extract from PCMag in the US and confirms my previous note about an upgrade coming.
The Transformer Prime TF700T will bring a few key upgrades to Asus’s flagship line of tablets.

The Republicans have set up their rules so they can override the publics wishes if needs be, Ron Paul has discovered how it is being done, and is making full use of the loopholes in the system.
For example, in the recent Causus, or was it Primary, where Ron came second, thirteen delegates were on offer, and by using the method described in the Video, Ron Paul got all thirteen delegates backing his claim for the leadership.

"To know how good you are at something requires the same skills as it does to be good at that thing.
Which means if you're absolutely hopeless at something you lack exactly the skills you need to know you're absolutely hopeless at it.
And this is a profound discovery, that most people who have absolutely no idea what they're doing have absolutely no idea that they have absolutely no idea what they're doing."

A Brief Argument for English IndependenceThe normal English response to Scottish nationalism is to ignore it, or to see it as an irritation, or to try shouting it down with reminders of all that shared history, or to point out the value of English subsidies and to wait for common sense to win the argument. None of these, I suggest, is an appropriate response. None takes into account that England and Scotland are different nations, and that the loudest and most energetic part of the Scottish nation has decided that the current union of the nations is not in Scottish interests. This does not make it inevitable that the union will be dissolved. It does, however, make this desirable. Scotland may or may not have suffered from the union. But the union has done much to bring England to the point of collapse, and it strikes me as reasonable to say that England can never be safe while there are Scottish members in the Westminster Parliament.

The screaming rabble of the left chasing member of the hunt didn't do it. The politicians and the newspapers railing against it didn't do it. Here is what did it for me.
Anthony Robbins, the self-performance coach introduced this song to us when I attended an "Awaken the Giant Within" long weekend (Friday to Monday) at the Alexander Palace, in North London, over twenty years ago.
Although her "The bodyguard" has inspired others, this will always be the song of hers I love. So sad she died in the early hours of this morning. My eyes are watering, the keyboard is blurred, I hope there are no errors in this post.

In ancient Israel , it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a young wife by the name of Dot. And Dot Com was a comely woman, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she was often called Amazon Dot Com.
And she said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why dost thou travel so far from town to town with thy goods when thou canst trade without ever leaving thy tent?" And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How, dear?"

I have had a lot of problems using some of the other blogging apps on Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich, Blogaway being terrible, kpt on crashing whenever I tried to load a photo or video.
So, first of all, lets take a photograph.
Well, I took the photograph, and can see it on the bar, but when I touch it, the only option I have is to delete it :-(
Now to try to load it from the SDCard.
It looks like I am going to have to spend some time on google here, the photograph I clicked on doesn't even appear on the bar below!
So let's try the link button: Here is a link to Amazon - no it's not, or at least it doesn't show in draft mode. I will publish it as we'll see.

This poor woman, her children, and her parents are being cast aside by the miserable coalition. She needs our help.

A few days later, in his office, Andy showed me a color diagram of the colon, a lengthy organ that appears to go all over the place, at one point passing briefly through Minneapolis.
Then Andy explained the colonoscopy procedure to me in a thorough, reassuring and patient manner.
I nodded thoughtfully, but I didn't really hear anything he said, because my brain was shrieking, 'He's going to stick a tube 17,000 feet up your behind!'
I left Andy's office with some written instructions, and a prescription for a product called 'MoviPrep,' which comes in a box large enough to hold a microwave oven... I will discuss MoviPrep in detail later; for now suffice it to say that we must never allow it to fall into the hands of America 's enemies.
