example article - number 1 - 'Emmys 2018'

A Game of Winners

For the many Game of Thrones fans it was a great night. Winner of the 'Outstanding Drama Series' and category winner Peter Dinklage picking up 'Outstanding Support Actor', with other members of the ensemble nominees too. Richard Madden, (fans will recall as Rob Stark) is now leading the limelight in the BBC's brilliant political thriller 'Bodyguard' which is still available on BBC iPlayer and if you haven't watched either Game of Thrones or Bodyguard - you are missing some serious stories,  plots, characters and premium acting performances.

After its absence from last years ceremony, Game of Thrones returned to the 70th annual primetime Emmys to take home the night’s biggest award: 'Outstanding Drama Series'. HBO’s sprawling fantasia, whose upcoming eighth season will be its last, won six other awards for its makeup, costumes, music composition and stunt co-ordination.

What 'Thronies' are going to do when it ends is unthinkable!

why you shouldn't take men shopping !

This is genuine and we bet everyone can think of someone who they can imagine doing these things!

Proof of what can happen if a wife or girlfriend drags her husband or boyfriend along shopping. This letter was actually sent by the supermarket’s Head Office to a customer in Oxford:

Dear Mrs. Murray,

Whilst we would like to thank you for your valued custom, 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 his actions 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.

2. July 2: Set multiple alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.

3. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official tone, 'Code 3' in housewares..... And watched what happened.

4. August 14: Moved a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area.

5. September 15: Set up a tent in the outdoor clothing department and told shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring sausages and a Calorgas stove.

6. September 23: When the Deputy Manager asked if she could help him, he began to cry and asked, 'Why can't you people just leave me alone?'

7.. October 4: Looked right into the security camera; used it as a mirror and picked his nose.

8. October 10: While appearing to be choosing kitchen knives in the Housewares aisle asked an assistant if he knew where the antidepressants were.

9. November 3: Darted around the store suspiciously, loudly humming the Mission Impossible' theme.

10.November 6: In the kitchenware aisle, practised the 'Madonna look' using different size funnels.

11. November 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed, yelled' PICK ME!' 'PICK ME!'

    . . . and; last, but not least:

12. November 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited a while; then yelled, very loudly, 'There is no toilet paper in here.'

example article - number 2 - 'Boris & Donald'


Is this man Prime Minister material? Seriously? I don't think I'd want him representing me as leader of a local cricket team, let alone steering the country!

Front pages are from national newspapers in September 2018. The comment and text alongside is from us!


You'd better duck Donald, they're all comin' to get ya. Don't be giving your friends guns for Christmas like some Americans give their children, safer with a book of famous quotes like "Et tu Brutus?", or a Chinese Take-away . . . . then again . . . . perhaps not!


How many amoral narcissists does it take to run a country? Sometimes just one! Welcome to the 'Boris and Donald' travelling circus. Watch in amazement as they trample on their friends in the 'Big-Top'. Yippeeee! Gasp in wonder as they balance their families on scary tightropes whilst laughing with their lovers in their ring-side seats. Hurrah! "Send in the clowns . . . . don't bother, they're here".

Just a bit of fun - these people don't deserve our respect, do they? - lol !
