Looking for some nice "royal" events, again I was disappointed. For the moment the royals must be on holidays, they just don't do anything I really miss them. But I read with pleasure that a British Airways flight was delayed for four hours after the three wives of Sheikh Badr Bin Khalifa al-Thani of the Qatari royal family objected to sitting next to men they did not know. Ah, if they knew them it would be different ?? Can understand that, sharing one man must not be funny, poor Sheikh must be exhausted !
And Norway's Princess Martha Louise says she has psychic powers and can teach people to communicate with angels. Wow that's something for the norvegian population ! through their princess they can talk with angels ! the only problem is about what ?
Then my eyes dropped on this article !
The man expected to become Belgium's next prime minister has caused a stir by singing the French national anthem when asked to sing the Belgian one. How nice ! Can you imagine old Bush singing "God save the Queen" instead of the American national anthem ?
Now that the Potter fiever is over I am confronted with the Simpsons ! The world premiere of The Simpsons Movie has taken place in the US town of Springfield, Vermont. Springfield welcomed visitors on Saturday by hanging a banner across its main street, decorated with Homer's favourite doughnuts. And here too I am completely ignorant, I didn't know at all about this family, except I see one each time on Sanni's posts.
Ah, that's something special ! Ikea in Oslo has offered a wedding night to 150 happy winners in their bedlinnen department. With this marketing campaign they want to make a tourist attraction for Ikea because 900.000 people are visiting Ikea in summer that's more than the most important attraction in whole Norway. Isn't that wonderful ! Dream about a night at Ikea instead of one in Hawai !
And now this ! A US cat that is reportedly able to sense when a nursing home's residents are about to die is baffling doctors. Oscar the cat has a habit of curling up next to patients at the home in Providence, Rhode Island, in their final hours. Oscar was right in 25 cases so far ! Is that why my cats curl up with me ?? Now I am really afraid.
A CROW hooked on lager sticks his beak in his favourite tipple defying a furious landlady who has BARRED him from her pub. The boozy bird — nicknamed Carling by drinkers — swoops on customers’ pints whenever they turn their backs. I of course would think it was my neighbor, who could believe that crows are alcoholics ?
Reading about alcohol, I saw in the next article that space crews have not so strong nerves as they should have ! Before they leave for the moon, they get boozed ! Boozed in space ! Isn't that something ? I too probably would have some glasses before starting ! Of course the NASA was very upset about that.
In the UK something very important happened too ! A leading expert on midges has said their numbers have slumped this summer due to the heavy rain meaning they cannot get a frequent supply of blood. The little Draculas are on benefit now !
