YESTERDAY's HOROSCOPE - Smiley Saturday

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

On my way to the supermarket I heard my horoscope in the radio. This gave me the idea to surf the net a little and find my daily horoscope !

This was then what was supposed to happen yesterday :

"Let yourself do something nice -- for yourself! It's one of those days when everyone else seems to be taking care of themselves, so there's no reason for you to break your back for them. Send this page to a friend."

I took care of myself by pulling a big caddie with 4 enormous Asters plants (in pots !) to my car, unloaded them and plant them while everyone else seemed to take care of themselves. I didn't send any page (or Aster) to a friend.

To be absolutely sure that I acted the correct way according to my horoscope I had taken a second one :

A huge array of mixed influences points to some communication difficulties today. It's not a great day those heavy talks. If there is something you really want to get off your chest, then it might be wise to hold off for a couple of days. Having fun certainly isn't out of the question!

Of course I had communiction difficulties with 2 Asters pots in my arms which I wanted really to get off my chest ! I couldn't wait for a couple of days standing like this ! I don't know if planting Asters is having fun, anyway not for me !

I also informed myself about my chinese horoscope, I am a goat after all and think that goats love asters. Here is what it said :

It's time to clear the air in an important personal relationship. Honesty is the best policy, but you can phrase things gently if you try.

I couldn't clear the air yesterday because it was raining cats and dogs and my personal relationship had his afternoon nap. I tried to phrase gently the fact that he could have helped me with the Asters and I certainly was honnest !

Today's Fortune Cookie:
"The way you cut your meat reflects the way you live."

And that was not right either because we had fish !! and anyway what about Vegitarians ??

This week I looked in some shops to see if they had already Halloween decoration. I have quite a lot from last year but it's always nice to find something new. In the supermarkets they hadn't started yet, but in a big toy and decoration shop there was already a big display with all sort of Halloween things.




Of course I couldn't resist to buy these black ceramic cats ! The green cat is in silk looking fabric and has a nice collar. Doesn't look Halloween at all. I also bought the ceramic pumpkin for outside under my window. Now I have to find a lamp and put it inside.



Cat Arthur was delighted about the new stuff and added himself as another decoration !

THURSDAY THIRTEEN

13 proposals for your answering machine

1. Hi. If you are a burglar, checking to see if anyone is home, then we're probably at home cleaning our weapons right now and can't come to the phone. Otherwise, we probably aren't at home and it's safe to leave us a message.

2. Hi. I'm home right now, I'm just screening my calls. So start talking and if you're someone I want to speak with I'll pick up the phone. Otherwise, well, what can I say?

3. Hi. I'm probably home, I'm just avoiding someone I don't like. Leave me a message, and if I don't call back, it's you.

4. Roses are red, some willows weep, please leave your message, after the beep

5. We might be in, we might be out, but leave a message and you might find out!

6. Talk to the phone, the face ain't home, please leave a message, after the tone. BEEP!

7. Now I lay me down to sleep; Leave a message at the beep. If I should die before I wake, remember to erase the tape.

8. Being reincarnated as an answering machine is the pits. Keep your karma clean by leaving your name, number, message, and the time that you called.

9. Bob here. I'm home right now, I'm just screening my calls. So start talking and if you're someone I want to speak with I'll pick up the phone. Otherwise, well, what can I say?

10. Hello, epicenter of the Universe, God speaking. If you leave your name, number, and prayer after the tone, I will call you back as soon as I can. Please note that I answer all prayers, but sometimes the answer is NO. Bless you, my child, and have a nice day.

11. Hello, we are unable to come to the phone right now. Please leave your name and number unless of course you are a salesman or trying to solicit money.

12. Hello. I'm David's answering machine. What are you?

Pub calls time on equine regular

Peggy had a taste for John Smiths beer and pickled onion crisps
A Tyneside pub has called time on one of its regular visitors after the premises were refurbished.
Peggy, a 12-year-old mare, used to enjoy a pint of beer and a packet of crisps alongside her owner. However, she is no longer allowed to prop up the bar following a refit which included new carpets.The horse still accompanies her owner, on his trip to the pub but has to stay tethered outside. That's not nice ! I am sure the horse is cleaner than some of the clients !

For sale : Second hand camera, contains top secret terrorist records and pictures

A SECOND-HAND camera sold on eBay by a top MI6 agent held secret records used in the fight against al-Qaeda terrorists. Names, snaps, fingerprints and suspects’ academic records were found in the memory of the digital device. The Nikon Coolpix camera was snapped up on the auction website by an innocent 28-year-old deliveryman who lives with his mum. He discovered the secret material as he downloaded pictures from a US holiday. No wonder that terrorists can lead a nice life if secret agents are so generous with their informations ! Poor young man I am sure he would have prefered some pictures of naked beautiful girls !

What caused the crunch? Men and testosterone

Never mind mortgage-backed securities - the reason why confidence in the banking system collapsed was too much testosterone. With more women on the trading floor, risk-taking would be a saner business After all, it is men who dominate the financial system that got us into this mess; it is men, by and large, whose trading inflated the profits of banks to levels that now seem like the stuff of testosterone-fuelled fantasy. I fully agree ! that's what I always said !

Cow chases bear away
Residents of a rural Colorado town say a cow named Apple chased off a bear that had climbed into her favorite apple tree. Jack McDonald of Hygiene, about 30 miles northwest of Denver, said the bear had climbed out of the tree when the cow approached it Sunday afternoon.
McDonald says the animals touched noses and hung out together for a bit before Apple chased the bear off. I am really sad that we don't have a bear in the neighborhood, I so much want to see a cow climbing behind a bear on an apple tree !

Pony-size pig holds woman captive, sent to stud


A pony-size pig who held an Australian woman hostage for 10 days inside her home has been removed to a piggery. The 176 pound pig, nicknamed Bruce, kept self-confessed animal lover Caroline Hayes, 63, in her farmhouse near Uki, in northern New South Wales State, with aggressive demands to be fed, even headbutting her bedroom door at night. Now isn't that romantic ? being the hostage of a pig ? Thats far more interesting than being the hostage of some boring terrorists !

FUN MONDAY - CLOSET



RDH mom wants to see the inside of our closet!! She wants to see if our closet is as messy as hers ! We are not allowed to organize it before taking the picture !

Ha ! that was a coincidence ! I just had gone through my cloths and sorted out everything which I don't wear anymore ! So for once my wardrobe looks perfect ! It will not last long that's for sure, because when I take something out I never put it back where it had been and after a week my wardrobe looks as messy as if I had never made some order in it !



I am very proud of this view and will keep this picture safe to remind me how my wardrobe was before I started to take things out ! I should do another picture an a week !
