BBC News - Irish Church accused of abuse cover-up

BBC News - Irish Church accused of abuse cover-up

Yet more proof that the Catholic church is the most evil organisation on the planet. Not only are they the richest organisation on the planet who horde untold riches while a large percentage of their followers starve but they also condone child abuse.

Not only are they sanctimonious hypocrites but they cover up the rape of children by their members.

The only thing that makes me smile is that by their own belief they are all going to burn in hell. A cheery thought indeed! :-)

On The Scrounge

As you know I have taken up running over the past few months. I was asked at work if I was entering a 10k race and I said no but I would enter a 5k race if I could find one.

I should have kept quiet!

G-Man managed to find a 5k race in Sheffield where you have to dress as Father Christmas while you do it. I hate fancy dress but it now appears that I and several others from the office are entering.
The real reason I an entering is because of the charity itself. Amy's Retreat helps families with children suffering from cancer and when I read the founders story it made me think of my own kids and how I would cope if they got ill. Very badly I suspect. I hope I never find out.

Anyway, the run is set for the 13th of December and is around Western Park in Sheffield. Feel free to come and watch and laugh as I stumble around the course but also please dig deep and sponsor us all by clicking here. You know you want to!!! :-)

If course, out of everyone entering I will come first and they will all be left in my dust. Looking at them they all look so weak and pathetic I would be surprised if they make it across the start line let alone the finish line. I on the other hand will probably win the entire race. ;-)

US data firm blows s**t out of server

US data firm blows s**t out of server

All the people in this video have a very small penis.

McLaren confirm Jenson Button will join Lewis Hamilton for 2010

McLaren confirm Jenson Button will join Lewis Hamilton for 2010

Dream Team or a nightmare for Button?

Personally I think Button should have stayed put. He had a team he was comfortable with and he will be the new boy at Mclaren.

Mclaren have also been Hamilton's team for the past 3 years and it will be difficult for him to join them as an equal.

I would say his best chance would be to beat Hamilton next year but I really can't see that happening.

Whedon's DOLLHOUSE Put Away For Good!! -- Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

Whedon's DOLLHOUSE Put Away For Good!! -- Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.:

Once again, Fox TV are such a load of wankers! They have cancelled Angel, Firefly, Sarah Connor Chronicles and now Doll House. They also cancelled Family Guy but brought it back because the DVD sales were so good, and Futurama, recently brought back for the same reason.

They seem to commission great shows and then cancel them way before their time. It's hardly worth starting to watch a new series these days as you will get a maximum of 1 or 2 seasons before it is gone.

Idiots!!

My Last Day In My 30's

Tomorrow is my birthday. I will be 40 years old.

Yes, I know it is hard to believe that someone as good looking, youthful and cool as myself could be anywhere near 40 but it is true. Today is my last day in my 30's.

Am I sad, bitter, distressed or angry about being 40? No. For a start there is nothing you can do about getting older so why worry about it and secondly I count the last 10 years as the best of my life.

On my 30th birthday I was living alone in a batchelor pad. It was good at the time but when I look back at what has happened over the last 10 years my life has changed almost totally, and I mean for the better.

Firstly, Victoria and I got back together soon after I was 30 after several years apart. We got married a couple of years later and had Alice a couple of years after that. We then had Amelia almost 2 years ago. I love my family more than life itself. How can that possibly be beaten? It can't. My 30's were superb!

Don't laugh but I also consider myself 10 years wiser (you should have seen me a decade ago!!). I have better taste in music and films, discovering a love of American Folk and blues music and widening my love of foreign films past France and Germany. I also have excellent taste in wine and a huge love of good food. I have even started cooking myself recently and am mostly pleased with the results.

I have also (2 months ago) started running. I think it is a good way of losing a few unwanted pounds and it keeps you fit. I can now run 5km and do so 3 times a week. I consider that a great achievement and I'm proud that I can do it. I am going to increase my runing so I can go further and I am even entering a 5km race in December. OK, so I will be dressed as Father Christmas but it's still a 5km race. :-)

Let's just say that I have grown as a person in the past decade, and I don't just mean my waistline. :-)

They say life begins at 40 but to be honest if it continues as it has for the past decade I will be happy.

So, goodbye 30's and hello 40's. I welcome you with open arms.

Manchester - 7th November 2009

It's my 40th birthday on Thursday. I know, you can't believe I'm even 30 but it is true. I am 40 this week.

Victoria and I spent quite a while deciding on what to do to celebrate. I was originally going to have a party but decided against it when I realised I would rather spend my money on me instead of my friends. :-) Sorry folks!!

What we decided upon instead was a trip to Manchester for a night out. Victoria and I plus my brother and his wife Claire booked into the Arora hotel and headed there at about 9am Saturday morning.

Claire had booked lunch for 2pm so we checked into the hotel and headed out into town to do a little shopping before lunch.

Victoria and I didn't buy anything because we are moving house and need to save as much cash as possible. It was nice to window shop though and I saw some very nice yet very expensive watches. Maybe next time. :-)

After a couple of hours wandering around shops we decided that beer was required. It was 1pm after all. We headed for the local Vodka Revolution and started on the Guinness........and didn't stop until about 1:30 the next morning.

At 2pm we had a table booked at San Carlo. This was an Italian restaurant that I had never heard of before but word on the street marks it down as being fantastic, and the word on the street was right. The restaurant was packed. There is no way you could just pop in and hope to get a table. The place had a great buzz about it. A really good atmosphere. The staff were quick, but not too quick and nice an friendly, and the menu had a big selection complemented by a big specials menu. The food was superb. The best Italian I have had for ages. Everything was obviously made fresh on the premises and all the ingredients were also obviously fresh. Everything has so much flavour.

This large and excellent lunch was washed down by Peroni for the boys and champagne for the girls.

We then pub crawled our way back to the hotel, sat in the hotel bar for a couple of hours, got changed and headed out again.

We headed for Canal street and had a few beers before moving on to somewhere less 'fruity'. :-) Then Justin and I pushed everyone into a taxi and said to the driver 'Take us to where they are showing the David Haye fight'. It worked! He took us to a local casino where they had a massive projector showing the fight. The girls were not impressed! They left us too it and went back to Canal Street.

After the fight Justin and I met the girls in some pub and carried on drinking until we were all VERY drunk and had to go to bed.

We all had a great day. Children are fantastic but they prevent you from going out and getting hammered so it is nice to be able to let rip like this every now and then. The next morning though we all felt very poorly.

I am pleased I was not driving back to Sheffield. :-)

Anyway, Manchester is a great place to go out and San Carlo is surely the only place to go for lunch.

I had a great day and I am sure you all agree that me telling you all about it is just as good as if you can the the party that I never had. :-)

My actual birthday is Thursday. Make sure all presents and cards arrive on time by posting early. :-)

Alice's 5th Birthday

I have finally managed to upload the pictures from Alice's 5th birthday. I know it was a week ago but what with trying to sort out the mortgage and other such fun things required to move house I have just not had time to sort them.

Anyway, The pictures are available here.
Alice had her actual party at St Peters Church on the Saturday which was also Halloween. This obviously required a Halloween themed party and all the children dressed up accordingly and Victoria provided sweet ghosts and bat buns to eat.

The 32 children attending were entertained by 'Sparky Marky'. Personally I was not impressed with his act but it was not really aimed at me and the kids loved it, so I guess it was money well spent.

The next day was Alice's actual birthday. She got the ususal massive pile of pressies including a bike from me and Victoria. Unfortunately it rained for most of the day so we could not go out and ride it.

Anyway, Alice had a great weekend which is what matters. I still can't believe she is 5 already. Time is certainly flying by.

BBC NEWS | Scotland | Edinburgh, East and Fife | Morrissey is 'best musical poet'

BBC NEWS Scotland Edinburgh, East and Fife Morrissey is 'best musical poet'

What a load of crap. Morrissey just is a miserable twat who should have hanged himself years ago and done us all a favour.

He is also the worlds most annoying vegetarian. Robert Smith once said that he would become a vegetarian but Morrissey is one so it is never going to happen. :-) Got to love Robert Smith!!!

Fuck you Bernie!

BBC NEWS | Magazine | The rise of the non-veggie vegetarian

BBC NEWS Magazine The rise of the non-veggie vegetarian

Good news for Vegetarians!!! Most of you are not actually vegetarians and are therefore not as big a loser as you thought. :-)

Remember folks, meat is tasty, especially pig meat in all it's many forms. Pigs are now thought to be as intelligent as dolphins and chimps which makes them even tastier in my book! Who wants to eat a dumb animal when you can eat a clever one?

I wonder how hard it is to get dolphin meat.......?
