6 degrees and windy, not going out if I can help it, a day for slobbing in front of the TV, lap up some rugby (a decent win for Wales last night!), check out the football scores and eat comfort food. Winter is no fun her.
Happy with shares for now, buys all going well, and gaining for the last two weeks, even if it has been a bit choppy thanks to Boris and his career-ending Brexit gambit?
Got our lovely auditors in for the next 4 weeks, so will be happy to still have my job at the end of it - had to take so many liberties balancing year end accounts, they are bound to pick holes in it. Might have to feign madness and sing at them if the going gets too tough.
Anything interesting going on with you guys? Wish I could find some inspiration for you here, but will be watching Dumb and Dumber for safe belly laughs - got it for a fiver on iTunes download - bargain!
Cameron Will go , he is coming unstuck and he made a bad deal with the EU, he knows it but Do the people see it, that is the question , those on the ball know what is coming NWO for Europe is closer than u think
I know, and still the Police force release stuff saying "yes, but...." and magazine for ex-police retirees praised them saying that despite Hillsborough, they did a good job and should be proud" - not the brightest thing to say!
Prince, Victoria Wood added to our list since the last post - and the BBC confirmed our suspicions Moon, there ARE more celebrities popping off then ever before - so far 2016 has seen as many obituaries as 2014 & 15 put together, however, it is not all that strange in a way, as all these folks came to the for several decades ago, and a few years back, only Hollywood actors, politicians nad top military brass were really known by the masses, whereas now, we are saturated with famous people from all walks of life, who are now entering their 60's, 70's and 80's, so I guess we have to get used to more of it happening.
Were you wanting Man Utd to lose today? lolol - didn't happen, but I heard a few Utd supporters wishing Leicester would win it at Old Trafford, particularly with Schmeichel in goal. What a fairy story though, in decades to come, people will look back on the history of Football, with Dele Ali in the studio in his '70's saying, yes it really did happen!
Loving the 3D movies Moon, a whole new perspective on some old favourites, but be careful if you invest in a 4k player, both me and my brother got caught out. They were titled "4k and upscaling" but that meant they didn't play Ultra HD blurays which are genuinely 4 times the definition of blurays. I was lucky that when my first disc came down, I was within the 28 days consumer rights period, and could get my player swapped, especially as I bought locally through the JEC. My brother used Amazon and he is now stuck with his. But boy the difference is utterly amazing - watched Exodus and it was like I could touch them such was the clarity, deeper darks, more colourful colours, wow! Bit limited on choice at the mo, but got The Revenant on order from USA as all discs are region-free
Fantasy Savant, what the weight requirement to be able to join your National Fat Boys Club?
I watched a lot of it, but are you pleased you might be getting Mourinho instead of Van Gaal? Not sure he is Man Utd type of manager. Rashford gives hope for the England Euro's cause, but not sure about this Rooney midfield love-in - he plays a lot of sideways balls and reminded me of Ray Wilkins in that position, who was nicknamed "the crab" as a result of playing like that. at least you have a cup in the cupboard!. Chris Smalling - Englands main defender at the Euro's? Hope taken away again lol.
Watched Transendence French bluray today as it is the only 3d version - happy that you can choose English audio and no subtitles - took a risk ordering that from French Amazon, but worked out beautifully!
Chucking it down here today - no summer yet or anytime soon - must get away again!
Definitely no grass in our garden - it was all gravelled over before we arrived and a major selling point lol. Wouldn't mind that fake grass as it looks very realistic now, but can't be bothered spending the amount needed to cover our area, more expensive than I realised. No mowing, no bugs, no pollen - win, win, win lolol.
Have a listen to "Cake By The Ocean" by DNCE Moon - let me know what you think ;-) - best new song I'd heard in a while, much better than ABC starting up again, kept hearing the Zimmerframe creaking in the background!
tariq, it was meant as a joke because in days gone by there was a game called operation. So I asked him how many he killed playing the game. Some of you have to lighten up.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Sadly the british people don't have the backbone to leave. The betting is for staying and they usually get it right. It is a shame really because I think that would be the best thing bringing the EU down around the bureaucrats knees. EU would fall light a set of dominoes.
I would put importance of these speculation as #$%$
The FTSE has been trying all week to do what it did today. Even with the Dow, DAX etc going up we had been badly lagging. I think it's all to do with this BREXIT stuff because we just haven't been keeping pace with everyone else. I've picked up a few longs today.
You're doing the right thing by looking for bargains and not just jumping in feet first on a whim. It's the only way to keep ahead of the pack. The committed bulls are going to get hammered, just as the committed bears are going to get hammered.....as always.
That new CEO sounds like a real tyrant. lol. Some think that's the only way though and never change. I've met quite a few of them in my time and they always get pushed out in the end. It cause3s a lot of upheaval until they do go though.
They've only made 6 X files episodes. I wonder if it's a tester to see if it's still popular?
I'm out on the booze tonight. My sister's 25th wedding anniversary and we're all going out for a meal.
David Gest gone as well. He was very popular in the UK because of his BB and jungle appearances and he seemed a very nice bloke, albeit a bit strange. The sad thing is that he had to leave BB early due to illness and it was obviously leading up to him dying. My worst nightmare something like that because I've been to the doctors last week with an unexplained pain in my chest and there was nothing found. She said it could have been a slight infection but to go back if it gets worse. It'll get worse when I keel over one day when I'm out walking the dogs. Then I'm stuffed.
A cracking result for Leicester and would have been better if Man U had given spurs a game. I hope Leicester beat Man U 5-0 at Old Trafford to win the premiership. a grat result for Man C as well to reach the semi finals of the champions league. I hope they win it for Pelligrini because I think he deserves it after the way he's been treated.
I don't seem to be very interested in the cricket these days. Maybe a good ashes match will change that. lol
Who's this Grim? ...... This shouldn't be happening. It doesn't make sense........ Every bear in the world. lololol. I've lost count of the number of times I've read from 'experts' that the ftse will struggle to get past 6200 before the big falls start again. I've been buying the dips since 5600 and every dip up from there. Not a short in sight for me. lol I think 5600 was the bears March 2009 and we know what happened from there as the shorters and sellers got clobbered all the way up to new highs. We might see a pullback from here as it looks very overbought a slight adjustment and we'll be off on a charge again. There's still too much money sloshing about and any tightening they say they're doing isn't really tightening.
Isn't it strange how it's all gone quiet with Isis and syria. Maybe you're right and they're starving them of attention. That would help calm the public as well. No news is good news.
