My Blog

September 7, 2007

Well I think its about time I did something useful with the blog. After spending the time moving and redesigning I think the content needs to be looked at too.

There is only so much I can write about my mundane life that people, including myself want to read. So where do I go?

Well like most people I have my interests and I think some people would, well maybe would, like to read my thoughts on certain things. They include being vegan, the enviroment, technology and computing and blogging. So again, where do I go?

Ok, here’s the plan:

I read alot. I read alot about the things that interest me and motivate me. I intend to use these articles, sites, daily and weekly publications to post things of interest here and give my comments and opinions on them. So away we go….


August 20, 2007

Well, I havent done a blog for a little while so it’s time to get back to it.

My internet has been down over the weekend, which I mainly spent watching football anyways so it wasnt really a loss. Chelsea managed a predicted draw with Liverpool at Anfield and Man U lost against Man City which was a brilliant bonus.

Whats new with me?

Well not much to be honest, things roll on as normal. Marie is getting closer to our due date and everything is going smoothly, though she is getting regular contractions. They would try to stop the baby being born now anyway, at least for another two weeks.

I’ve been getting on with my reading, currently 4 or 5 books on the go atm, hah, atm.

I really which there was something interesting to blog about but life is just trundling on as it ussually does.

The fantasy league football thingy is going well, seems to be drawing a bit of interest, I have to admit it is a bit of a laugh and I am enjoying watching my team progress and watching the matches and highlights to see who’s playing well. As its the start of the new season I have also started doing my £1 football bets, got close last week with only one result out from winning a few quid.

Health wise I seem to be doing a lot better. Everyone says how well I’m looking, hopefully that transfers over to my blood tests when they are due.

The girls are back here and I have to admit its been nice having them around again, now I’m feeling better it isnt stressful at all and it’s a joy to spend time with them.

Thats all for now folks.

Community Shield

August 5, 2007

So Chelsea drew against Man U and went out on penalities. I can handle that considering the injuries we had, enough so that our bench had to have two goalkeepers and three youngsters.

One more week to go till the season starts. I can’t wait.

I’m also looking forward to starting the fantasy football thing I start, if you are interested in joining for free you can, would be great to have you:

If you fancy a game of free Fantasy Football this season with me and some mates join up at the official Premier League site for free http://fantasy.premierleague.c om and use this code to join my league 500348-92698

Right, I’ll be back later no doubt.

Blood Test Results

August 3, 2007

So I had my phone call appointment.

Turns out I have a few problems with my Liver. Some of the counts in the blood are double what they should be. Going to have another test in two months time, hopefully they will have sorted otherwise I may have to have a biopsy.

On a lighter note I completed my DVD collection of the original generation 1 Transformers today. Sad I know, but I’m reliving my childhood!

Blood Test

August 1, 2007

So I had my blood test on Monday and get a phone call from the receptionist at the Doctors today making an over the telephone appointment with me for 10.10am tomorrow.

Has me a little wondering as I was told to call them at the end of the week.

Anyways I guess we will see whats up tomorrow morning.

Bastards make me wait over night to tell me I need a new liver!

July 25, 2007

Well it’s almost a goodbye from me to IRC, although I’ll still stick around in a couple of channels from time to time.
There isn’t really one big reason just a few little ones.

For a start I have come to realise that despite what I used to think IRC is basically a haven for the sad and lonely, that doesn’t include everyone of course. I’m refering to, for example, the guy that never seems to leave his computer or his house who lives north of the boarder, one of his close friends who has trouble sleeping and eating due in no small part I’m sure to the irc addiction. Some of these people have nothing but irc and chat in their lives, even the ones I know who work all tend to spend every spare minute online and fretting over a radio station that pulls in 25 listeners tops and worrying about who has the ‘powah’ over 30 people sitting at their computers typing and normally less than half that tuned in (Thats just an example). Of course there are the exceptions, people who see irc for what it is, a distraction from ‘life’ and not ‘life’ itself. It’s the ones who irc is their life that I feel sorry for. I have almost been there myself but have pulled back and tried to see everything objectively and that is my basic conclusion. I’ve been using irc for so many years and can spot the types, most of them started out in the fun loving vein as chatters as I op’d over them, before irc sucked the fun and addicted them over any other form of social activity, placing some kind of ‘importance’ on something that should really just be a distraction from reality.

My other reasons are personal, not that that normally stops me from putting them here, but I think that may be something for another blog.

So, what else is new? Nothing much, the girls have gone to their families for some of the summer holidays so it’s been peaceful around here. Plenty of time to do things I want to, like catch up on my reading and my other hobbies. Plus my Chelsea highlights seem to be doing really well and I am really loving doing them. Next match today at 5.30pm.

So, I’ll get another blog up at some point I guess.

Where Have I Been?

July 20, 2007

Well, didn’t blog a couple of days ago, and yesterday I was sick so there you go.

I’m going to lay off the animal stuff for a while, cos you can only bang the drum so many times.

My YouTube Chelsea FC highlight vids are doing rather well, a combined total of 14,500+ hits in three days, not too bad if I do say so myself.

I’m tempted to link and if you are interested you can find em via this.

That’s about it for now, I’m gonna take it easy today and recover fully.

Pig Farming

July 17, 2007

Ok, I have posted two videos on the way cattle are treated, and I’m sorry to say this video is just worse. It made me cry.

Thank you for all your comments, I’m not trying to force what I think down peoples necks, but put the information out there. Then people can choose to read more and decide what they think. Anyway, this is the video on pigs, I dont think I can watch it again.

Pigs have the intelligence and awarness of a three year old child apparently.

One more…. even more horrific.
