Isn’t sleep a wonderful thing? You go to bed feeling done in and wake up feeling done in! Just a minute…..That’s not right. You should feel invigorated when you wake up shouldn’t you? I have woken up today feeling like I haven’t slept for a week. I think this is down to a number of factors. Firstly, the pollen is in the air and my throat is constantly aware of it. Secondly, I am thinking about something that’s constantly on my mind. I think we’ve all had experience of the latter. I am trying to make up my mind who really is to blame in the Ronaldo transfer money immorality.
For starters, you could give most of Africa access to water if you gave the same amount of money to the right people. You could buy a whole village and repair its infrastructure in Spain. You could build schools and hospitals where they are needed. You could buy a number of other over-priced and over-paid footballers and increase the size of your squad. Sorry. This whole sorry scene is against everything I stand for and believe in life.I would also like to point out that I love football and I am not against any individual person. In fact, I applaud the business acumen of Sir Alex Ferguson.However, it is not right.
My major beef is that we are in a recession and I do not understand how football clubs like Manchester United and Liverpool can be allowed to operate in this vacuum of credit when we know the world’s economic problems have been caused by credit. I think even a Philadelphia lawyer would struggle to fathom out this one! Let’s look at the weather.
It is roasting hot in Spain today but there might be a little sting in the tail. The GB pound today is worth 1 euro 17 and the euro is worth 85 pence. Let’s have our Spanish word of the day…..we all need this!

- Por suerte no estaba sola. – Luckily she wasn’t alone.
- ¡Qué suerte que tengo la extra llave! – How lucky that I have the extra key.

The papers in Spain are having a field day with the Ronaldo transfer. The nearest headline to reality is is that the transaction would pay 10, 000 unemployment benefit payments. The escalation of the Swine Flu epidemic has caused alarm in the papers. It is the speed with which the disease is spreading that is the root cause for alarm. Elsewhere, corruption and prostitution continue to gain column inches. Let’s peep at the Spanish news for today.
I was sent the following that you might find interesting.Please Note I have not checked the facts which have been claimed.………………..Here’s a shocking fact:
The average American spends over $5,000 per year on health procedures and medications that are completely UNNECESSARY. And do you know why this happens?
Because you’re being brainwashed by pharmaceutical advertisements duping you into thinking you’re sicker than you really are. The solution to this, as I have often said, lies in the power of your own mind.
I need you to watch this eye-opening video. The entire online community is talking about it, and you’ll know why when you see it: http://silvamindbodyhealing.com/important?lt=1736
and finally, something to lighten the day.…
The pastor entered his donkey in a race and It won.
The pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the race.
Again, and it won again.
The local paper read:
PASTOR’S ASS OUT FRONT.
The Bishop was so upset with this kind of
Publicity that he ordered the
not to enter the donkey in another race.
The next day, the local paper headline read:
BISHOP SCRATCHES PASTOR’S ASS.
This was too much for the bishop, so he
Ordered the pastor to get rid
Of the donkey?
The pastor decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent.
The local paper, hearing of the news, posted
The following headline
The next day:
NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN.
The bishop fainted.
He informed the nun that she would have to
Get rid of the donkey, so she
Sold it to a farmer for $10.
The next day the paper read:
NUN SELLS ASS FOR $10.
This was too much for the bishop, so he
Ordered the nun to buy back the
Donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild.
The next day the headlines read:
NUN ANNOUNCES HER ASS IS WILD AND FREE.
The bishop was buried the next day.
The moral of the story is?
Being concerned about public opinion can
Bring you much grief and misery …
Even shorten your life.
So be yourself and enjoy life.
Stop worrying about everyone else’s ass and
You’ll be a lot happier and
I hope you can join me at midday on FabFM
