How google maps really works!

This is genius!

One of these things is not like the other one!

.... By things; I mean people.

Gillian McKeith - born Sept 1959 vs Nigella Lawson - Born Jan 1960

This makes Nigella 4 months younger than Gillian..

I have chosen publicity shots of each of them from this year as a suitable comparison. Publicity shots as I wanted them to have spent time in make-up so they'd both be on an even footing.

Here is the comparison - Answers below on who looks the oldest!

As a bonus - Here is Gillian McKeith with her super-healthy Vegan (yeah.. right!!!) diet fainting in the jungle at the thought of a 'bush-tucker trial'

Totally faked! - Like her doctorate!

Why is it that when you make a coffee at work, in the kitchen, using freshly ground coffee; people look at you like you've just spat in their mother's eye?

They then say something like "Oh - Posh coffee!"

Movember update

It looks ridiculous!

Roll on December 1st!

Richard Branson is a bit of a legend!

At the beginning of the F1 season, Branson had a bet with Tony Fernandes.

Whichever team lost in the F1; the loser would serve as a stewardess on the winner's airline.

Well - The season is over and Virgin finished behind the Lotus team. Branson now has to don a stewardess uniform and serve for a flight on Air Asia!

Quote from Tony Fernandes

"There has been a fantastic spirit of competition between us and Virgin Racing all season and one of the first people to come and congratulate us on the pitwall was Richard. We have had this great bet running all season and now it's time for Richard to start preparing himself for some hard work and the likely pain of a pair of high heels! We agreed last night that we will run an online charity auction for the seats on our Kuala Lumpur / London route to raise money for a charity of Richard's choice and give fans of both teams the chance to be on the flight. The date of the flight will be announced very soon and the aim is to raise as much money as we can for a good cause so the discomfort Richard will go through is worth as much as it possibly can be!"

Looks like it could be a good laugh!

My rubbish 'Movember' moustache!

I seem to be blessed with the total inability to grow proper facial hair. Some blokes forget to shave for a day and they seem to turn into Brian Blessed!

If I, on the other hand, forget to shave for 2 weeks people only just start to notice!

Anyway as you may or may not know, November has been renamed to Movember to raise awareness and money for Prostate cancer

From the website:

"The Mo, slang for moustache, and November come together each year for Movember.  
Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a moustache. The rules are simple, start Movember 1st  clean shaven and then grow a moustache for the entire month.  The moustache becomes the ribbon for men’s health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for cancers that affect men.  Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, the men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days. "

So without further ado; here's my offering.

Yes - it looks ridiculous
Yes; I did cheat slightly as that is over a week's growth!

(please ignore the bloodshot eye!)

Well at least it's true to life!

I was browsing the internet today and found this!

At least it speaks the truth!

Natural Exercise

I have taken to walking again as I am now pretty close to my desired weight.

I'm hoping to average at 15 miles per week at a speed of between 3.5 to 4.5 mph.

I managed to do 4.6 miles on Monday and 6.5 miles yesterday and I feel great for doing it.

Happy days!

Opening myself up to ridicule.

Did something retarded today!

I rebooted my PC at work and as it came back on, it started beeping quickly.

I was convinced that something had broken so I started a Dell Diagnostic Test (1 hours worth!)

Turns out I'd wedged the keyboard under a bowl on my desk and it was holding the Escape key down nicely for me thus creating the beeping..

How embarrassing!
