Though i'd give the blog cloud a go, if my blog is like what i'm thinking etc then this cloud is like a picture of my head.... its a lot prettyer than i thought.

on retrospect, thank God you can't see inside my head
And thank God for Grace that means my head will one day be perfect, along with the rest of me !

The LORD: Paths, Ways, Hills and Valleys

Matthew 11:28 "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."

Psalm 23:3 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul.

Psalm 40:2He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.

Psalm 25:4 Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths

Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me;

Psalm 56:13For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.

Psalm 90:2Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

Micah 4:2Many nations will come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths."

2 Samuel 22:31"As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him.

Murphy's Law:

· If anything can go wrong, it will

· Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.

· If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong

· If anything just cannot go wrong, it will anyway

· If you perceive that there are four possible ways in which something can go wrong, and circumvent these, then a fifth way, unprepared for, will promptly develop

· Left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse

· If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something

· Nature always sides with the hidden flaw

· Mother nature is a bitch.

· Murphy's Law of Thermodynamics: Things get worse under pressure.

· The Murphy Philosophy: Smile . . . tomorrow will be worse.

· Matter will be damaged in direct proportion to its value

· Enough research will tend to support whatever theory.

· In nature, nothing is ever right. Therefore, if everything is going right ... something is wrong.

· It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

· Nothing is as easy as it looks.

· Everything takes longer than you think.

· Everything takes longer than it takes.

· Whenever you set out to do something, something else must be done first.

· Every solution breeds new problems.

· No matter how perfect things are made to appear, Murphy's law will take effect and screw it up.

Must Love Dogs ??!??
Friday night back home is the usual film time. So we ended up watching “must love dogs”. John Cusack and someone else. The basic plot is two divorcees meet and fall in love something happens in the middle but they resolve it yadda yadda yadda. Film starts with them both being set up by “well meaning” relations, kinda funny. It ends up with them being posted on internet dating by their friends, her profile has under it “must love dogs” hence the title.

HOWEVER despite the comedy moments and Cusack’s great on screen presence I have a bone to pick with the film. THERE ARE NO DOGS !!! Well I tell a lie, there are about 3 scenes in which she has her dog, who does steal the show. But for a film that seems to be about Dogs its not. Do not be deceived.

I was hoping for something along the lines, of:
Girl meets Guy, :)
Girl meets Guy’s dog, :/
Girl and guy get together, yet have dog related tensions :-o
Girls says “it’s me or the dog”, > :-l
Guy looks at his hound and then at her and says “on your bike”. :S
Guy and girl break up, :(
time passes in which girl has life revelation about dogs after either being saved by one or watches lassie or deals with her inbuilt child phobias and comes to a pro-dog realisation of her stupidly and decides to go back to the guy (still working on this)
Girl and Guy meet, girl apologises to the dog about her comments and dog related ahtred and asks whether the dog would mind her getting back with her master
The dog barks his approval "woof"
They kiss at sunset on the beach/dog park (guessing beach)
The end

Like Lassie meets pride and predjudice with a little bit of bridget jones thrown in.

(feedback apreacated)

It was a good film but it did not deal with any of the issues that dogs and the love of dogs bring to relationships. I mean when I say “must love dogs” (which I do) it is a serious thing, right up there after: must be a godly Christian and a girl (whose not related to me or married), no 3 is must love dogs. This film that seemed to promise to speak to me on many levels infact lacked all the levels i was looking for, I was betrayed by the media! I was very glad Cusack was there to redeem the feature, as well as Cheryl Crow on the soundtrack.

Something For the ladies:

Aparently the latest trend in beauty treatments is a Chocolate massage. Looking round the net alot of spa's and hotels offer this service. It involves... well being mssaged in choclate. HOWEVER i dunno what the benifits are... there seem to be no articles about the benifical properties of this treatment apart from that it smells nice. Crazy or revolutionary? place your comments

A Teddy with a Kalashnikov, you don't see that every day!
Why is he smiling????

At a school speach day (my going to a traditional school and having these sort of things) the Master of the Skinners company gives a word of inspiration to the boys of the school. This one has stuck with me so I thought i'd share;

Never chase busses or women, there'll be another one along every 10-15 minutes

Re-thinking Finance

So i woke up and serveyed my garden, as i normaly do whilst waiting for the kettle to boil. And i look at the wildlife and think... man that's one FAT pigeon!

Something that has been on my mind for a while, if your doing relay and going to a nice green leafy uni town then there is a way to get cheap food.

1) Invest in an air-rifle, a nice CO2 powerd .22 would do

2) Shoot pigeons

3) make pigeon pie and spend the rest of relay shooting, cooking, and eating what God has provided in your garden.

The pigeons in my garden are the correct sort (i.e wood pigeons) as my house just boarders the south downs, please dont do this to town pigeons, thier like dirty and diseased.

Also if you get bored of pigeons, well there's squirels, foxes and owls. Wonderous varity to eat.
