If you've got a paypal credit card read this...

Was just going to pop in for a ramble but then got this heads up you might be interested in. Apparently there is a scam out there where you can have cash removed from your Paypal credit card account. The "charges" start off small and when the scammer has the account confirmed they grow substantially. The only way to find out if you're a victim is to check your account online and then inform Paypal and start your fight with them. If I get any more details I'll post them here.

Been popping in and out of the Traffic Exchanges and one ting intrigues me. How do you give someone 250% off? It's usually the Peel Away Ads  that make this surprising claim and I'd be grateful if anyone can tell me what a $10 product would cost if i offered 250% off?

Today I broke my duck after a couple of cancellations and tutored Anti-Racism training for the first time. Scary stuff let me tell you!
Tutoring such a subject is fraught with dangers. Unlike other subjects which are up for discussion and there is a reasonable amount of latitude, Racism is a very definite subject where the Tutor HAS to be Right and know the subject inside out. Otherwise...the tutor dies, live, in front of an audience, the night of a thousand knives.
The area I am least conversant in is Gypsies and Travellers. Halfway thru my blurb on same...a participant informs me she is a Traveller. Raises issues I'm not aware of.
Fortunately, my Co-Tutor has extensive experience and bails me out big time (that's why he was there lol) but it highlighted for me areas I need to really research properly.
I love the learning experience but this time it happened to be quite intense hehe!
Thank goodness for teamwork and supportive colleagues and me buddy Terry just happens to be one of the best!
Way to go and many thanks Terry!

No kiddin!

I want to come back as a researcher and set up my own company called The Stating the Bloody Obvious Agency. Who is it that funds studies like the one in the US that just released it's mind blowing conclusion......our eyes are drawn to good looking people. No kiddin, they are???? Or the one that stated "Soft drinks are less of a cause for child obesity than a poor diet and no exercise". Wow, you wouldn't have come up with that yourself would you?
The Northern Rock have hot a troubled spell. Scenes reminiscent of "A Wonderful Life" have seen thousands of customers queuing for hours to withdraw their savings. Kept waiting to see Jimmy Stewart and certain angel popping up lol! Looks to have settled now as the Govt Angel popped by and gave safeguards about peoples cash.

Have a great week

Basking in glory.....

it is not very often you will find a  Scots footie win being the main headline on the BBC sports page when England have won 3-0 on the same night. Sooo why did the Scots suddenly take the headlines away from the English win? Scots are in the same group as Italy (World Champions) and France (Beaten finalists). Last October the Scots beat France in freak 1-0 victory at Hampden. Tonight, the so called "freak" result was repeated and after 9 of 12 games we are table toppers!
Today is a good day to be Scot when it comes to sport and footie and I am simply going to bask in the glory for glory does not come along very often!

Pavarotti died this week, very sad. One of the most fantastic voices ever and he introduced a lot of people who would not normally come across it, to Opera, mainly through his rendition of Nessun Dorma as the the theme to the Euro Champions League comp.
Have a great weekend!

How do everybody! I decided to take a sabbatical. A few connection probs with the modem kinda helped in that respect lol but just needed a break....
Not much of a summer here, very little sunshine, lots and lots of rain and sometimes the temps feel like October and no I'm not going to go on a rant about climate change

Good start to the season for the Jags!!! Unbeaten in the competitive season so far and wait for it.....drum roll..............3 league games and a goal difference of PLUS 7! When was the last time we saw that huh?

I found a new site that looks like MySpace but you can actually earn a few pennies for the amount of visitors you get? Even if you have a blog already this lot might be worth a try huh?
Click the banner below...

That's it for now.
Have a great week!!!

Sooooo I get in here at last!

Been very frustrating, the page just would not load last couple of days so couldn't get in to post. Bah! Never mind, here now!
A wee plug for a friends website (non-commercial). If you're having trouble with Paint Shop pro you def want to head over here. Chrissie had put together a great site with tutorials for putting together graphics using Pain Shop and has her own graphics on show there too. It's great!! Check it out!

Wow it's been wet here! Not as wet as down south though where there is a LOT of water and about 350,000 people are without water supplies for about two weeks not to mention the devastation caused by the flooding.

We had a good day today with loads of sunshine which made a very welcome change!

Best be off...stuff to do lol!

Have a great week!

New website and ebook

I've just set up a new website called ManifestAction which is the title of the short ebook on offer for free. It's a play on words as the book is about manifestation and action. The reason I did this was down to the apparent misinterpretation, by teenagers especially, of things like The Secret and The Law of Attraction. They seem to think you just have to lie in bed and "manifest their thoughts" to become successful apparently.
The ideas are there for a short series of similar ebooks but the time and inspiration? Time will tell!

Been so engrossed in the above that there's not a lot else to tell!

Have a fab weekend!

US/Glasgow Attitudes to Terrorism

Yep....this just about sums it up....

July 3rd, 2007
You know a country has a, shall we say, irreverent sense of humour when a potentially deadly terrorist attack on that country results in a joke email, and a general feeling of "Fuck ye!" I copy here for your benefit. If this had happened in a US airport, compared to Glasgow: Eyewitness accounts

  USA: "Oh my God! There was a man on fire, he was running about. I just ran for my life. I thought i was gonna die, he got so close to me."
Glasgow: "C**t wis running aboot on fire, so a ran up n gave him a good boot, then decked him"

USA: "I just wanna get home, away from here. I just wanna get home, I thought I was gonna die."
Glasgow: "Here, Tam, ahm no leaving here till ahm oan a f**kin' plane!"

USA: "There was pandemonium, people were running in all directions, we didn't know what was happening. I thought I was gonna die."
Glasgow: "Fuck this fir a kerry oan. 'moan we'll get a pint in."

USA: "We thought he was gonna blow us all up. He had a gas canister, and was trying to get into his trunk, I thought we were gonna die, I just ran for my life."
Glasgow: "Ah swaggered by the motor that wis on fire, and the dafty couldnae even open his boot, he wis in fire annaw so a ran up n gave him a good boot to the baws."

USA: "There was this huge explosion, it sounded like war, I thought I was gonna die."
Glasgow: "There wis a bang, yi know when yi throw BO basher intae a fire it wis like that!"

USA: "I'm too traumatized even to speak, I thought I was gonna die."
Glasgow: "here mate, gies 2 minutes till a phone ma auld dear, if am gonna be oan the telly a want her tae tape it."

Finally, two quotes from an eye-witness, one John Smeaton. These are real. John surpassed himself on the national news channels. The interviewer asked "What message do you have for the bombers?" He replied "this is Glasgow, we'll just set about you." John took part in an interview on CNN and they asked how he restrained the guy and he said "me and other folk were just tryin to get the boot in and some other guy banjoed him!" For the record, I enjoyed John Smeaton's interviews, and thought it was excellent to get somebody on (inter)national TV who didn't talk bollocks. He spoke the plain and simple truth. Find out more about John here. In case anybody misinterprets, this is not a dig at the US, the email could equally have chosen many other nations in the western world. This is an example of the Glaswegian spirit of self-deprecation, masked within a smugly proud feeling that only here would people have behaved as they did. Lesson learned. Don't mess with a Scotsman.
