The Validity Of Old Sayings As Per Email

Have you ever wondered how some of those old sayings ever came about, you know, things like throwing the ‘baby out with the bathwater‘, or perhaps even being ‘piss poor‘ or ‘it’s raining cats and dogs‘? Well, I got this email today, and while I can’t vouch for it’s validity I thought you guys would perhaps find it of some interest. There is an old Hotel/Pub in Marble Arch, London which used to have gallows adjacent. Prisoners were taken to the gallows (after a fair trial of course) to be hung. The horse drawn dray, carting the prisoner was accompanied by an armed guard, who would stop the dray outside the pub and ask the prisoner if he would like ”ONE LAST DRINK”. If he said YES it was referred to as “ONE FOR THE ROAD” If he declined, that prisoner was “ON THE WAGON” So there you go. More bleeding history….

Image by bcostin via Flickr We only found out recently that my daughter was lactose intolerant, which basically means that she is allergic to anything that has milk as part of it’s ingredients. Naturally that means she can’t have things such as milk, chocolate, ice cream, bread and stuff. The problem is we’ve also found out that milk is used in a lot of other products one wouldn’t expect to find milk in such as potato crisps. This means reading the labels very carefully. Consuming anything with milk in it causes her to get ill and that seriousness of the illness is related to the amount of milk in the product as well as the amount she’s consumed. Seeing as how I’ve already got an interest in the lactose intolerance and alternative milk products I was intrigued when one of my affiliates contacted me as to a survey they are…

Why Does Sex In Advertising Sell?

[NOCSEADS]Sex sells. I don’t think anyone out there would argue the point that sex sells. If it wasn’t true advertising companies wouldn’t be spending millions of dollar making sexy ads. Yet even though it’s true you would have to admit that people who buy a product merely because some semi naked woman or man is draped over or seen using it would have to be at the best pretty shallow and at the worst down right stupid. You heard right, if you’re buying something just because of some sexually stimulating advertising then your pretty stupid. Woman know sex sells and that’s why many of them have breast implants, tummy tucks and botox treatments. I mean you have to look sexy if you’re to be taken seriously right? Men aren’t any better as they bust their balls trying to get that ever evasive six pack, not to mention those poor bastards…

Cool Blog Links Top 10 Coolest Blogs

Once upon a time a there was a man with a dream, and that dream was to bring to life a site that would one day link to all the coolest blogs in the blogosphere. That dream, in part came true on December 12th 2008 when Cool Blog Links came to life.  That man just happened to be yours truly and in almost 18 months it’s member base has grown to a whole 19! Yes you have heard right my treasure dream site has 19 members. OK, who the hell is that laughing in that background? Obviously not a member. Could someone please show that person the door, Mitch I reckon you can escort that low life out. Yes, our member base is low but that doesn’t matter because our members are the best of the best and it’s only a matter of time before we will be beating them…

WassupBlog’s Milestone 300th Post

I’m pretty sure I’ve never done one of these posts before but I’m sure that if there’s one floating around somewhere someone out there will remind me of the fact. My first ever post, Wassup Blog Is Here To Entrance And Enthrall The Reader, and I dearly hope that in that time there have been one or two posts that have managed to do just that. That particular post was was posted on August the 9th 2008 and only received two comments, one of which was mine the other belonged to my good blogging mate Mitch, who out of all the possible super powers would love longevity. Since that first post went live I think I’ve managed to acquire a respectful readership and I think a lot of that has been due to the fact that I tell people how it is and I don’t try to gain their respect…

The Need For Speed Computer Style

In my last post I talked about some measures that I’ve taken to speed up my WordPress blog and while this is something I have to do every now and again I’m lucky enough not to have to worry about my PC. I used to worry about it some time back when I used to take ages deleting old files and stuff in order to get the old gal to go a little faster but now I’ve got a little utility to do it for me. The program I use is called TuneUp Utilities and I’ve set it up to scan my computer every Friday. So, every Friday at 5.15 pm it searches the hard drive and corrects any registry problems, removes invalid shortcuts, frees up disk space and optimizes hard disk performance.  As you can see from the following image of the start page although my PC is fully…

Being Real BloggerLuv And Huge Breasts

Man, my weeks been pretty crappy, I’ve had so much on that I haven’t had the time to do what I love best, blogging. It’s probably going to take a while before things get to normal so until that happens I may not be able to reciprocate all the comments left on the blog, but I still gonna do my best to reply to those that need my interaction. Even though I’ve been flat chat I’ve still had to time to do some reflection and one that came my way was what it was to be real. I reckon one of the reasons I don’t like reality TV is because it’s so false. I mean come on, if  Survivor was supposed to be Reality TV they would dump on an island full of cameras for a couple of months and then come back to see what was left of them…

Stand By Me And We Will Become Better Bloggers

I got a link in my email today that lead me to a site where I was able to listen to the old song Stand By Me by Ben E. King. I’ve always liked this song but this time when I listened to it I was blown away as it involved the participation of musicians from around the world, adding their part to the song as it traveled the globe. I immediately tweeted the song to give it more exposure and so that my followers could listen to what I believe is an inspirational song. Problem is that I know not everyone who follows you on Twitter will always click on a link and so I thought it best to post it on this blog, along with a little poem I threw together for the occasion. As long as the Net exists People will move about Bloggers will come and…
