If you are having an affair and want to keep it secret then you might want to check out this article on how not be found out. It’s about a boss and his secretary who were having an affair. Unfortunately for them the woman was performing oral sex on him when their car was struck by a reversing van. The impact caused her to bite off his penis. An ambulance was called by a private detective who had been hired by the mans wife to catch the couple out. I guess there are no excuses for this one.

We ordered some new sofas about a month ago to replace our very old moth eaten ones and the new ones arrived yesterday. We brought our original sofas when we moved into our house about eight years ago and not being the most expensive or well made they had got to the point where the seats has dropped and springs were sticking out of the back. Coupled with the toll of four pairs of claws (the cats) it really was time to replace them. The new sofas were ordered from Furniture Village and made to order hence why they take up to a month to arrive. We were slightly concerned that they were going to make it in tact because our doorway is too narrow for sofas so unfortunately they need to go over the garden wall and through the patio doors at the back of the house. Whilst this manoeuvre is not hugely difficult, in the past we have encountered problems because health and safety rules do not allow delivery drivers to lift items over a certain height. Despite us informing Furniture Village on three occasions the drivers were not aware of the potential problems when they arrived. However, unlike last time when Argos left our sofas on the lawn they quickly agreed that the sofas needed to go over the wall and after about 20 minutes the new sofas were unwrapped and in the living room. As I am typing this I am sitting here enjoying that new sofa smell.

According to this article Sales of beer in the UK have fallen at their fastest rate since the recession of the early 1990s. The British Beer and Pub Association have said that off trade beer sales fell by 11 per cent in the first quarter of 2009 contributing to a total decline of 8.2 per cent in total beer sales. On trade beer sales (those in bars and restaurants) also fell by 6.3 per cent that’s around 753,000 fewer pints every day over the first three months of 2009. The message here is clear, your local pub needs you to drink more beer.

According to this article the average Briton has only three true friends. A poll of 3,000 people founds that whilst most people claim to have 16 friends, 48 per cent admit that most of those people are friends out of habit. The study found that  the typical Briton is actually only left with three close friends and that they lose touch with a average of 36 people over the years. More than half of people polled said that their busy lifestyles was the main reason for failing to keep in touch with friends and four of of ten said they simply drifted apart. Do you agree with the results of the poll?

According to this article a new type of tomato has been produced that won’t make your sandwiches go soggy. It has been produced by Tesco who claim it is the world’s first non leaking tomato. The tomatoes have been grown in Holland under a seed breeding programme that began in 1986. Unlike normal tomatoes which lose 8 per of their weight when sliced the non leaking variety loses less than one per cent of moisture meaning less juice ends up seeping into the bread of the sandwich. At 99p for four they are not cheap but if you are sick of eating soggy sandwiches then this might be the answer.

This article highlights the importance of microchipping your pets. Its about a cat called Kofi who went missing from its home in Nottingham four years ago. When his owners moved away they thought that was the last they would see of their pet. Luckily, however, they had decided to have him microchipped. When a black and white cat was found in Ipswich this year he was scanned by the RSPCA and was identified as Kofi. He was later reunited with his owners and doesn’t appear to have been traumatised by his ordeal.

article-1172844-049D8498000005DC-134_224x444_popup It is very rare to see normal sized women in the media these days. By normal sized I mean anything from a UK sized 12 to a size 18. Most models or celebrities seems to be an average of a UK size 6 or 8 which is my option makes them underweight and also tends to make me wonder if they are hungry. This latest picture, however, of a contestant in the Australian Miss Universe contest appears to take the trend to the extreme. At 5ft 10 the model weighs just 7st 7lb. She maintains that she is a healthy weight but personally I think she needs feeding up a bit.

A couple in Windsor chose a slightly unusual place to have sex when they decided to get frisky on the lawn outside Windsor Castle. The couple ignored the Please Keep Off the Grass signs and proceeded to strip off before having sex. Despite being in full view of local pubs and shops it was 15 minutes before police arrived to stop the couple. They were arrested and cautioned for outraging public decency.

I’m not usually one to read articles about miracle face creams that instantly make you look younger but I must admit this article caught my eye due to the claims it works in two weeks. The product in question is called the 2 Week Miracle and it costs £69. The article highlights one woman who tested the miracle cream out to see whether or not it worked. The regime appears to be that you cleanse your face as normal before adding the Miracle Solution to tone the complexion. Then you use the Miracle Serum to regenerate new cells. Next the Miracle Cream which fills in lines and finally the Miracle Eye Contour which reduces puffiness and dark circles. It all sounds quite easy although a bit of the expensive side.

What I was more interested in, than the product itself was seeing the results afterwards. The lady who tried the product seemed to think it had worked and was quite pleased with the results. Personally, however, when I looked at the before and after pictures I found myself wondering what the difference is. As far as I can see, the after picture is shot in a much better light, presumably to make the skin appear healthier. The before picture on the other hand looks like it has been subjected to a little blurring, perhaps the Vaseline effect on the camera lens. I’m not saying the product doesn’t work, but I really think a better attempt could have made to shoot the two pictures in similar conditions in order to give a better comparison. As for the miracle cream it all seems it a bit too good to true and if I were spending that much money, I think I would expect better results.
