As per Sideview’s     challenge

I have this strong ambivalence when it comes to Tour de France which I have now watched on TV for the last 20 years. Do we want to rent a camper and go to France to watch (my husband will have to do the driving) or watch from the comfort of my couch? It is all about BEAUTIFUL France.

An infrared image reveals clouds of dust swaddling the stars of the Seven Sisters cluster, also known as the Pleiades. The cluster, located some 400 light-years away, formed about 100 million years ago. It contains thousands of stars but gets its name from seven of its brightest members.

Impossible :- that a spider could eat a Snake.


Australia has cemented its reputation as the home of the world’s most dangerous creepy crawlies with this video of a spider eating a half a metre long snake.

Cairns kite surfer Ant Hadleigh filmed the golden orb spider devouring the brown tree snake in the backyard of a friend’s house in Freshwater, Queensland.

He told The Cairns Post: ‘I thought it was pretty incredible. A few times the snake managed to get up and attack the spider, and the spider would run back up the web.

‘I would have put my money on the snake for sure, especially seeing how big it was.’

The proof




Earth Day


Earth Day

When is that?

Should not every day be earth day?

I am quite despondent,  only few care

– driving home we saw all the office lights on

Nobody cares to switch off?

Many 4×4’s with one driver in gas guzzling vehicles because O! Please what would people think of you  if you  drove a small car? (I think you are an uneducated arsehole with nothing else to hang your image on and you are advertising it!)

Garbage unsorted on the side of the road – they simply could not be bothered.

Forests being chopped – for whatever

The thought of CO2 – what’s that?

Women buying bottled water enough to fill 3 baths

Throwaway society – Mommy likes new things for her empty life

Spoilt brats won’t inherit the earth; there will be no earth to inherit.

People are not educated because they do not want to be educated.



PS I think if I had to become very old I would become like Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino – except I will not become very old I have my little cyanide pills – my kids won’t have to bother!
