I have absolutely no comment.......

Clever Scam - taking advantage of older men

Women often receive warnings about protecting themselves at the mall and in dark parking lots, etc. This is the first warning I have seen for men. I wanted to pass it on in case you haven't heard about it. This will only become more commonplace as the weather warms.

A 'heads up' for those men who may be regular Lowe's, Home Depot, or Costco customers. This one caught me by surprise.

Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your friends.

Here's how the scam works:

Two seriously good-looking 20-something girls come over to your car as you are packing your shopping into the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. It is impossible not to look. When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say 'No' and instead ask you for a ride to McDonalds.

You agree and they get into the back seat. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet. I had my wallet stolen September 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th,17th, 20th, 24th, & 29th. Also October 1st & 4th, twice on the 8th, 16th, 20th, 21st, 23rd, 24th, and 30th three times last Monday and very likely again this upcoming weekend.

So tell your friends to be careful.. What a horrible way to take advantage of older men.

Warn your friends to be vigilant.

Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for $2.99 each. I found cheaper ones for $1.99 at K- Mart and bought them out. Also, you never will get to eat at McDonalds. I've already lost 11 pounds just running back and forth to Lowe's, Home Depot, and Costco.

Just so you don't waste your' time, Wal-Mart is out of the $2.99 wallets.

This is brilliant......

I think you will enjoy this once in a lifetime performance.

Not our Alex surely??


To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in Downtown Savannah night before last.

Date: 2009-05-27, 1 :43 a.m. E.S.T.

I was the guy wearing the black Burberry jacket that you demanded that I hand over, shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend, threatening our lives. You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and earrings. I can only hope that you somehow come across this rather important message.

First, I'd like to apologize for your embarrassment; I didn't expect you to actually crap in your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket.. The even ing was not that cold, and I was wearing the jacket for a reason.. My girlfriend had just bought me that Kimber Model 1911 .45 ACP pistol for my birthday, and we had picked up a shoulder holster for it that very evening. Obviously you agree that it is a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head ... isn't it?!

I know it probably wasn't fun walking back to wherever you'd come from with that brown sludge in your pants. I'm sure it was even worse walking bare-footed since I made you leave your shoes, cell phone, and wallet with me. [That prevented you from calling or running to your buddies to come help mug us again].

After I called your mother or "Momma" as you had her listed in your cell, I explained the entire episode of what you'd done. Then I went and filled up my gas tank as well as those of four other people in the gas station, -- on your credit card. The guy with the big motor home took 150 gallons and was extremely grateful!

I gave your shoes to a homeless guy outside Vinnie Van Go Go's, along with all the cash in your wallet. [That made his day!]

I then threw your wallet into the big pink "pimp mobile" that was parked at the curb ... after I broke the windshield and side window and keyed the entire driver's side of the car.

Later, I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell phone. Ma Bell just now shut down the line, although I only used the phone for a little over a day now, so what 's going on with that? Earlier, I managed to get in two threatening phone calls to the DA's office and one to the FBI, while mentioning President Obama as my possible target.

The FBI guy seemed really intense and we had a nice long chat (I guess while he traced your number etc.).

In a way, perhaps I should apologize for not killing you ... but I feel this type of retribution is a far more appropriate punishment for your threatened crime. I wish you well as you try to sort through some of these rather immediate pressing issues, and can only hope that you have the opportunity to reflect upon, and perhaps reconsider, the career path you've chosen to pursue in life. Remember, next time you might not be so lucky.Have a good day!

Thoughtfully yours,


Getting older tip!

Ey up, Alex

Get ready for the lower divisions

Alex, thought you may like to be prepared for the lower divisions by studying Yorkshire accents, particulary as you will be hosting Sheffield Wed, Sheffield Utd, Barnsley, Doncaster and probably Leeds.

What goes around comes around!

Spurs 3 Fulham 1

Where is our Pompey correspondant after the Chelsea thrashing of 5 - 1. Looking forward to the next round when we meet your youth team.

Couldn't resist it......

And now I'm off to the briar patch. Tata!

A view of UK from the outside.

A neighbour of mine passed me a recent copy of Time magazine. I don't know if the copy is the same here as internationally. However, there was an article about Britain being on the skids and, basically, it revolved around Dagenham. The basic tenet appears to be that since Ford has moved manufacture from Dagenham, Britain is going down the khazi. Now, Britain may be going down the khazi, but it has naff all to do with Ford leaving Dagenham! That's like suggesting that the USA is finished because Detroit is a wasteland. There was an interview with a woman (who would be classified 'white trash' over here), a single mum with 3 kids who had been trying to get out of her council one bed flat into something bigger and, as her companion alleged, in 12 years she has not succeeded "because 'they' are giving them all to 'them'" - pointing at some black folk. At the same time, these two were likely to vote BNP because the current lot are only out for what they can get! Really? Is waiting for the ubiquitous 'they' to provide any better than fiddling expenses? Not that I defend fiddling expenses, you understand. Please God, let us do better than this. I move we ask Richard Branson to get into politics and light a few fires in Westminster! Any takers??

Can there be TWO? from the Jessica Watson Blog

Hello Jessica, Great update, sorry to hear you are running low on your favourite sugar fix.........maybe you had better spread them out from now on in. Just reading this with my grandson,with a map of the world in front of us explaining where you are and what you are attempting (very succesfully so far) to do. He is only 5 years old and he thinks it pretty amazing that you are out there all by yourself. I hope you get a closer view of Amsterdam Is. a photo of that would be interesting.........bye for now cheers, safe sailing Babs

Really early..

The crocii (?) have been in bloom for nearly 2 weeks, phenomonoly early for this part of the world. And the daffs must be having a fit, they shouldnt have a bud for at least another month. The Canadian Cancer Society gets daffs from the Scilly Isles to sell for the yearly campaign, it was supposed to be next week, but apparently the cold weather in the Isles has delayed them until second week of April. The winter weather has been almost a no-show here this year, but we will probably get a late blast just so we dont get used to it:)

In support of earlier allegations.........

Sad, but here today is a report which supports my allegation that if it's not within the software, it's not a problem:


Pompey 3 'Ull 2

Guess who's going to be full of it!

Again apologies if posted before........I love it

The phone rings and the lady of the house answers,

"Mrs. Sanders, please."


"Mrs. Sanders, this is Doctor Jones at Saint Agnes Laboratory.
When your husband's doctor sent his biopsy to the lab last week, a biopsy from another Mr. Sanders arrived as well...
We are now uncertain which one belongs to your husband.
Frankly, either way the results are not too good."

"What do you mean?" Mrs. Sanders asks nervously.

"Well, one of the specimens tested positive for Alzheimer's and the other one tested positive for HIV.
We can't tell which is which."

"That's dreadful! Can you do the test again?" questioned Mrs.Sanders.

"Normally we can, but MEDICARE will only pay for these expensive tests once."

"Well, what am I supposed to do now?"

"The MEDICARE Helpdesk recommend that you drop your husband off somewhere in the middle of town.
If he finds his way home, don't sleep with him
