Drug fact (remember kids it's not big and it's not clever etc.)

LSD was named after its inventor Ellis Dee, who was not only the brother of Dave Dee from acid rock pioneers Dave Dee, Dozy, Peaky, Eek and Twitch but also a direct descendant of prog-featuring-in Elizabethan Astrologer and Merry Prankster Dr. John Dee.

In Australia there is around ten times as many sheep as there are people. Australia also boasts the lowest record for sexual assault on women.

Fact: The resident population and visitors to Yorkshire Spa town, Harrogate, is now made up of so many pensioners that the local council has started making bi-focal shop windows.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

FACT We recently launched an appeal to help a little girl who desperately needed a transplant. On the first day we received two calls.

FACT This week we had to miss out the crossword because the compiler's notes were unreadable and he's gone on holiday.
It's 1pm and we've just taken our 30th call about it.

Queen Victoria was the first person to use chloroform to numb the trauma of childbirth. Her husband Albert was the first person to use it to numb the trauma of conception.

Thats very depressing longman.. however FACT; tomorrow is the day of the areas Fire Brigades raft race, where most of the money raised is  going to help a lassie from the area who was burnt nastily on a camping thing in cornwall. This single cause, rather than the usual spliting of the sponsor money, is raising loads of enthusiasm. I shall be down the pub later with my sponsor form to see how enthusiastic people can be. heh heh.

we're only in it for the nobel cause of course, we are not hell bent on trashing the other firebrigades & re-claiming the trophy. oh no.
watch this space.

The fiddler crab is so called because it claims benefit whilst working.

The 1953 London-to-Brighton film Genevieve is based on the second treatment of the movie's script. The first treatment finally made it's way onto the silver screen in 1975 as Death Race 2000.

FACT
with the passing of Barry white.
a nod to him and his abilitys.

he was FAT B*****D who most women would normally not even glance upon.
but when he spoke and sang no matter how unobtainable they liked to think where every female became putty in his hands. i witnessed this in the late 80s when he played the albert hall.
thousands of women of all ages willing to pledge themselves to him by the second set of the gig.

and lets not forget how many of us by proxy have enjoyed this abiltiy. hands in the air if you do not have a barry white cd tucked away somewhere, left from your days as young single male.?

umm not to many hands are there.
