The Boston Red Sox Party..

Clean sweep by Boston Red Sox 4 - 0, good on them. Credit where credit's due. But pretty uneventful, I have to admit, even boring if I may so boldly venture. I’m sure I’ll get abused by Bostonians everywhere ;-)

The most contentious issue was Ramirez implying that winning is not everything, saying "The sun will come out for everybody the next day."

"Sure." we hear the Rockies' reply. "Easy to say that when you're winning...."

But the 2006 World Cup Soccer finals…boy was that different. Italy won, but who cares. Decided on a penalty shootout, huh was it really?

Nope, this great match will be remembered fondly by all because Zinedine Zidane lost his head ….. muwhahaha!

Thank you TonaZ alberto.zanot for reminding us :)
Click on the picture, get Zidane to headbutt Marco Materazzi and sent off.

Right or Left

Warning: The moving GIF may not work if animation is disabled in your browser :(

I love this one (stolen from News Corp)

The Right Brain vs Left Brain test ... do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?

If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

A new day..

It’s spring down under…a time for pruning, new growth, new start. The flowers on my chilli plant, lemon and apricot tree have fallen and the fruits are beginning to grow (Love my apricot tree... in full bloom).

Suppose that’s what has happened to me, searching for a new beginning. All the stuff previously in this blog has been deleted and hopefully this could be the fresh start I need.

A big thank you to Lavender, Loving Annie and Sophia for visiting and comments. You guys make me smile. Talking about smiling, love this song by Lily Allen – Alfie

Ooooo deary me,

My little brother's in his bedroom smoking weed,

I tell him he should get up cos it's nearly quarter past three…
