Due to the bad weather I am still locked into my house and when I went shopping, nothing special had happened either, no bank rubbery took place while I was there, and no little terrorist blow himself up while I was in the supermarket.

Therefore I checked the news and found some interesting once.

A website called PleaseRobMe claims to reveal the location of empty homes based on what people post online.

Very interesting ! I only have to increase my household insurance, make myself member in PleaseRobMe and hope that all interesting things are stolen so that I can buy new once with the money I get back from the insurance. Of course for double value.

A German snowboarder stranded in the Austrian Alps for six hours has been rescued after attracting attention by setting fire to his cash. He started with restaurant bills, before he was spotted burning the last of 120 euros in cash.

What do you learn from this experience ? Always take a lot of cash with you ! And don't forget to keep restaurant bills ! Go there very often ! You never know !

Barbie’s so geeky

DIZZY blonde doll Barbie has an unlikely new job - as an IT geek.
Wearing specs and a T-shirt with a binary code design, she uses a laptop, pink of course, and hands-free phone headset.

I am a little doubtful that little girls would like to play with such an "intelligent" looking doll or is she more destinated for business men, managers, bank directors, or politicians ?

A WOMAN in Rumania weighing more than 240 kg (529 lbs) has given birth to her first baby.
Victoria Lacatus, 25, had her healthy 2.9 kg (6.4) baby girl by caesarean section yesterday. Doctors had feared for her health during the pregnancy.But she told reporters at the hospital in Craiova, Romania: "I wanted this child with all my heart, whatever the sacrifice."

Now I only hope she doesn't take the baby with her in her bed ! Her husband probably looks already like a pancake.

The mind boggles at wondering how she got pregnant in the first place.

I'm so glad no one blew themselves up in the grocery store... that get's sO messy!

These stories are something else! I hope that woman will lose some weight now so she can take CARE of that baby! Maybe while they were in there for the c-section they did a little EXTRA surgery!

Luz would LOVE that Barbie! I'm going to have to find her! LOL!

Interesting news and Barbie Dolls are always moving in tandem with the progress of our society :D

Hehehe I do love your sence of humor, you can amuse yourself and the rest of us, even on very ordinary cold days. Why aren't people asking the obvious question about the russian woman. How the h..is she going to take care of the baby. I do hope she can get up. It looks like child neglect right from the start...and she wanted that baby with all her heart...looks like some new sacrafices will need to be made, starting with the snickers. And as far as robbing the empty house, I am not worried. I am of the belief that if theives come in and see how old my stuff is they will feel sorry for me and leave me something behind. "hey this lady is worse off then oss....."

No hold ups, no terrorists? Oh dear, life is dull for you...not. I think we can do without excitement like that.

As for that very large woman...getting pregnant must have been interesting, but let's not go there.

As for Barbie...she couldn't look geeky if she tried...what little girl's going to want that? Unless the little girl in question is a geek herself, then she may be tempted to get that Barbie. Crazy!

Oh my. Well, I suspect that baby will be slim and healthy when growing up - occupied serving her mother all kind of things all the time!
