Bear on the Wire

Bear on the Wire

Check out this Canadian Black Bear pretending to be a squirrel and raiding the birdhouse across the clothes line…

#Note: at the bottom there’s also a VERY funny Canadian Bear Warning sign, make sure you read it all the way through, I promise it’s worth it! ;)

This Canadian warning sign about bears is scarily funny, make sure you read it all the way through though… :)

These pics came in to my inbox from a random person, so I’ve no idea who to thank for them, but thanks for the laughs anyway! :)


Clarkson Island Video

Clarkson Island Video

This is a very funny spoof video of Jeremy Clarhsom from the UK’s Top Gear program, called “Clarkson Island”, from Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse.

#Note: it’s only going to be funny for you if you’ve watched Top Gear or are familiar with Jeremy Clarkson…


Men and shopping..

Proof of what can happen if a wife or girlfriend drags her husband or
boyfriend along shopping

This letter was (apparently) recently sent by Tesco’s Head Office to a customer in

Dear Mrs. Murray,

While we thank you for your valued custom and use of the Tesco Loyalty
Card, the Manager of our store in Banbury is considering banning you and
your family from shopping with us, unless your husband stops his antics.
Below is a list of offences over the past few months all verified by our
surveillance cameras:

1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people’s
trolleys when they weren’t looking.


Water v Coke

I don’t know how true/accurate all this is, but I found it an interesting read…


1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. (Likely applies to half the worlds population)

2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is mistaken for hunger.

3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one’s metabolism as 3%.

4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.

5. Lack of water is the primary trigger of daytime fatigue.

6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

Top 10 Tips for Attending the Royal International Air Tattoo

1. Leave early, otherwise you will end up spending a LONG time queuing to get in, we were queuing for almost 2 hours!

2. Take a portable seat to sit on, you will spend a lot of time sitting around and having a portable seat will make this a lot easier, especially if the grass is wet

3. Take an umbrella, just in case it rains

4. Wear comfortable shoes, it’s a  big “show ground” and just to walk from one end to the other is about 2 miles…

5. Take something to read, there are some quite bits where you may want to have something else to do, unless you’re with a bunch of friends.

Royal International Air Tattoo 2009

I was hoping to take my kids to the Royal International Air Tattoo last year, but it was rained off for the first time in it’s history, so we we’re pretty determined to make it this year, and it was well worth it!

We took umbrella’s just in case, but the weather was kind enough to stay dry, my son and I even picked up a bit of sun burn, so we certainly can’t complain at the weather!

The day didn’t start quite so well though, as we ended up stuck in the queue to get in for almost 2 hours!
