the last shop She was jubilant. Then she remembered her husband. Feeling guilty, she dashed to the hospital. She saw the doctor in the corridor and asked about her Husband's condition. The lady doctor glared at her and shouted, “You went ahead and finished your shopping trip didn't you! I hope you're proud of yourself! While you were out for the past four hours enjoying yourself in town, your husband has been languishing in the Intensive Care Unit! It's just as well you went ahead and finished, because it will more than likely be the last shopping trip you ever take! For the rest of his life he will require round the clock care and you'll now be his carer!” The woman was feeling so guilty she broke down and sobbed. The doctor then chuckled and said, “I'm just pulling your leg. he's dead. What'd you buy?”

A woman was in town on a shopping trip. She began her day finding the most perfect shoes in the first shop and a beautiful dress on sale in the second. In the third everything had just been reduced to 5€. Then her mobile phone rang. It was a female doctor notifying her that her husband had just been in a terrible accident and was in critical condition and in the ICU. The woman told the doctor to inform her husband where she was and that she'd be there as soon as possible. As she hung up she realized she was leaving what was shaping up to be her best day ever in the shops. She decided to get in a couple more shops before heading to the hospital. She ended up shopping the rest of the morning, finishing her trip with a cup of coffee and a beautiful vanilla slice, complimentary from

walked out of jail on 29th May and went straight to wife Jade Goody’s graveside, where he played the role of devastated widower, but within just five days of being released from prison, Jack had already enjoyed a string of nights out and told friends that he’s desperate for sex. A source tells ‘Now’ magazine Jack has been asking anyone and everyone to find him a girlfriend. He states that whilst locked up for assault the 21-year-old was furiously texting women. “So far he hasn’t managed to sleep with anyone, but it’s high on his list of priorities”

Piers, 44, reckons it will be more popular than the snaps of David Beckham modelling Emporio Armani underwear. “My poster looks fantastic. I beat Becks in a recent poll to be the UK’s Hottest Hunk. I came first - he was tenth I believe. I’ve beaten him once and I’ll beat him again.” “I’m also hearing rumours Daniel Craig wants to quit being James Bond. In which case, this seems a perfect option for me. I beat him in the Hot Hunk poll as well, so why not?”

Gotta love the scousers... “Trust me, it will do the job”, said the doctor.

ag

So the man went home, lit a banger and put it in a beer can.

He held the can up to his ear and began to count: ‘1, 2, 3, 4, 5,’ at which point he paused, placed the beer can between his legs so he could continue counting on his other hand.

m

nk

After having their 11th child, a Scouse couple decided that was enough, as they could not afford a larger bed. So the husband went to his doctor and told him that he and his wife didn't want to have any more children. The doctor told him there was a procedure called a vasectomy that would fix the problem but it was expensive. A less costly alternative was to go home, get a firework, light it, put it in an empty beer can, then hold the can up to his ear and count to ten.

ta

li

The Scouser said to the doctor, “I may not be the smartest guy in the world, but I don't see how putting a firework in an empty beer can next to my ear is going to help me.”

This procedure also works in Scunthorpe, Newcastle and anywhere in Wales. Police cordoned off Liverpool City Centre this morning when a suspicious object was discovered in a car. It later turned out to be a tax disc.

He'll look the size of an ant. Boy, good luck on this trip of yours. You're going to need it.” A month later, the woman again came in for a hairdo.

'Well,' muttered the hairdresser, 'that's all well and good, but I know you didn't get to see the Pope.' 'Actually, we were quite lucky, because as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder, and explained that the Pope likes to meet some of the visitors, and if I'd be so kind as to step into his private room and wait, the Pope would personally greet me. Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked through the door and shook my hand! I knelt down and he spoke a few words to me.' 'Oh, really! What'd he say ?'

Man’s Talk Two men are out just fishing quietly and drinking beer. Almost silently, so as not to scare the fish, Bob says, “I think I'm gonna divorce my wife. She hasn't spoken to me in over 2 months.” Earl continues slowly sipping his beer then thoughtfully says, “You better think it over, Bob. Women like that are hard to find.” Irish Couple Two Irish couples decide to spice up their sex lives by swapping partners. Paddy says “That was great, I wonder how the girls got on?”

Older Women After being married for 44 years, I took a careful look at my wife one day and said, “Forty-four years ago, we had a cheap apartment, a cheap car, slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10-inch black-and-white TV, but I got to sleep every night with a hot 25-year-old girl.” “Now I have a €1,500,000 home, a €45,000 car, nice big bed and plasma screen TV, but I'm sleeping with a 69year-old woman. It seems to me that you're not holding up your end of things.” My wife is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and find a hot 25-year-old girl and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap apartment, driving a cheap car, sleeping on a sofa bed, and

On the third day you could tell me that the cat lost its grip and fell from the tree and had to be taken to the vets because of a broken leg. Then on the fourth day you could have told me that it died peacefully in the vet clinic” explained O'Leary. So paddy apologised and another week went by, when one day O'Leary got another phone call, it was Paddy again. “All right O'Leary”, he said. “Everything's ok here, except your ma - She's climbed the tree and refuses to come down!”

One day O'Leary decided to visit his friend Paddy and ask him for a favour. “Paddy my friend”, he said. “I'm going on holiday for a few weeks and I wanted to know if you could come around a couple a times a day to check up on me elderly ma, an’ feed me cat”. “No problem”, replied Paddy. “You go and have a good time”. So the next day O'Leary left and headed for sunny Florida. However, after a week of him being there, he received a phone call from Paddy. “Everything's ok over here”, Paddy said. “Except you're cat. It's dead!” “Holy hell”, replied O'Leary. “You could have been a bit more sensitive Paddy!” “What do you mean?”, replied Paddy. “Well, one day you could

Since then, he has managed to extend his 15 minutes of BB fame to the likes of The Mint (before the show was brought off air) and Vernon Kay's Radio 1 show. Brian hosted a spin-off show to reality TV series Cirque de Celebrité but it was appearing on ITV's Hell's Kitchen that made him national headlines again courtesy of bitter clashes with so-called comedian Jim Davidson.

Things That Make You Go Mmmm Toffee-fudge Bananas with Toasted Nuts

nk

Method

m

2 large, ripe bananas 2 oz (50 g) Brazil nuts 1 lb 2 oz (500 g) Greek yoghurt 5 oz (150 g) molasses sugar You will also need 4 individual serving glasses, with a capacity of 7 floz (200 ml).

ag

Ingredients - Serves 4

2. Now peel and slice the bananas into thin rounds and place them in a large bowl, then add the yoghurt and mix well. 3. Next, divide the mixture between the serving glasses and simply sprinkle the sugar equally over the 4 portions of banana. Now cover with clingfilm and leave in the fridge for about 3 hours. 4. After this time the sugar will have transformed itself into lovely pools of fudge sauce. Now all you need to do is chop the toasted nuts, sprinkle them on top, serve and sit back and wait for the compliments.

1. Preheat the oven to its highest setting. Pop the Brazil nuts, spread out on some foil, under the grill about 4 inches (10 cm) from the heat and put a timer on for 3 minutes (if you don't have a timer keep an eye on them, because they will burn if you forget them), then keep them to one side for later.

Sharing...

ag

around the old couple were thinking. ‘That poor old couple.’ As the man began to eat his fries, one young man stood and came over to the old couples' table. He politely offered to buy another meal. The old man replied that they were just fine. They were used to sharing everything. Then the crowd noticed that the little old lady hadn't eaten a thing. She just sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally sipped some of the drink. Again, the young man came over and begged them to let him buy them something to eat. This time, the lady explained that no, they were used to sharing. As the little old man finished eating and was wiping his face neatly with a napkin, the young man could stand it no longer and finally asked the little old lady, “Ma'am, why aren't you eating. You said that you share everything. What is it that you are waiting for?” She answered, “The teeth.”

A little old couple walked slowly into a McDonalds one cold winter evening. They looked out of place amid the young families and young couples eating there that night. Some of the customers looked admiringly at them thinking ‘there's a couple who has been through a lot together.’ The little old man walked up to the counter, placed his order with no hesitation and then paid for their meal. The couple took a table near the back wall and started taking food off of the tray. There was one hamburger, one order of fries and one drink. The little old man unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half. He placed one half in front of his wife. Then he carefully counted out the fries, divided them in two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife. He took a sip of the drink, and then his wife took a sip as the man began to eat his few bites. Again, you could tell what people

Firstly you must pick a target. It must be precise, just aiming to get the ball onto the fairway or onto the green is not good enough. In your minds eye there must be something at the end of the target line, that perfect position where you want the ball to finish.

Eye sight I am told is the problem with a lot of the older players I coach. They claim to be alright up to a certain distance but after that they need a fellow player to tell them where to aim and where their balls lands when the shot is played, in a competitive environment . This should help you out when picking a target and setting your target line:-

Select the club that will give you the right distance to get to your target. Aim using your target line to the marker target you picked.

A man and his wife walked into a dentist’s office. The man said to the dentist, “Doc, I'm in one hell of a hurry. I have two buddies sitting out in my car waiting for us to go play golf, so forget about the anesthetic and just pull the tooth and be done with it. We have a 10:00am tee time at the best golf course in town and it's 9:30 already. I don't have time to wait for the anesthetic to work!” The dentist thought to himself, 'My goodness, this is surely a very brave man asking to have his tooth pulled without using anything to kill the pain. So the dentist asks him, “Which tooth is it sir?” The man turned to his wife and said, “Open your mouth Honey, and show him.”

Play your shot over the marker target and it should land next to your target.

When people first come over to Spain, Private Health Cover is probably one of the last things they think about. The car has to be insured, as does the house and contents but Private Health is sometimes way down the list of priorities.Even if you are covered under the Social Security System the waiting periods to see a specialist can be lengthy, there is always the language barrier and emergency services can leave you waiting in casualty for anything up to 6 hours at a timereally not what you need when you are sick. At EU Insurance we have a number of very affordable policies that would cover you. From as little as 30€ per month with fully comprehensive cover including in and out patient treatment all over Spain. Before you decide on your cover – ask the following questions:- •Can the Health Provider cancel your plan at any time due to the amount of claims? •Does it cover you in

A man walked into the vegetable section of his local supermarket and asked for half a head of lettuce. The boy working there told him that they only sold whole heads of lettuce. The man was insistent that the boy asked his manager about the matter. Walking into the back room, the boy said to his manager, “Some tosser wants to buy a half a head of lettuce.” As he finished his sentence, he turned to find the man standing right behind him, so he added, “And this gentleman kindly offered to buy the other half.” The manager approved the deal and the man went on his way. Later, the manager found the boy and said, “I was impressed with the way you got yourself out of that situation earlier. We like people who think on their feet here. Where are you from son?” “Originally from Essex sir,” the boy replied. “Why did you leave Essex?” the manager asked. The boy answered, “Sir, there's nothing but whores and footballers there.” “Really?” said the manager. “My wife is from Essex.” “No sh*t!” the boy replied. “Who does she play for?”

The mother is outraged at his language, smacks his bottom and sends him upstairs. She asks the middle child what he wants. “Well, I guess that leaves more f**kin’ French toast for me,” he says. She is livid, smacks him, and sends him away. Finally she asks the youngest son what he wants for breakfast. “I don’t know,” he says meekly, “but I definitely don’t want the fuckin’ French toast.”

S TA R S I GN S

A look at what's in store for you this month...

Gemini

88

Your key word this month is ‘fun’! Yep all month long, you want to be focusing on having a good time. This doesn’t need to cost a fortune, all you need is an attitude adjustment: Instead of waiting for the good times to come to you, go out and find those good times!

There's impulse buying, and there's way-over-the-top-bordering-ontotally-crazy impulse buying. Before you slap down your credit card stop and think. New projects can wait until you figure out all the details of an old one on the 13th and 14th.

ag a

Your month gets off to one heck of a start. On the 1st and 2nd, something you've been waiting for is not just within reach. It's delivered right to your door in a limousine! With flowers! You're a golden child this month, so make the most of all these developments.

m

Libra

What's the best way to handle a tough decision? One approach is to carefully weigh all your options. The other option is to go with your gut. At the beginning of the month you’ll need to use a combination of these two approaches when it comes to a tricky issue.

nk

Scorpio

There's just about nothing you can't do once you put your crystal clear mind to it this month so keep track of all your ideas, even if they're really wacky. Your friends will look Sagittarius to you for answers to some tough situations. It’s a lot of responsability, but your advice will be good.

a

Taurus

Your good energy will breed great results on the 14th and 15th. However, make sure you keep a lid on the details of your plans while you think big, especially on the 20th and 21st. Watch out for a shady character this month, your instincts will be right on this one.

st

Aries

There's just no stopping you this month. No way, no how. You're a lean, mean getting-things-done machine. You're charming, disarming and energetic. You have big plans and whatever you take on this month, you'll take it all the way to the finish line.

Virgo

Your biggest job this month is sharing your feelings, especially if you've been bottling them up lately. It's not healthy to sit on your emotions, and it's high time you brought a sticky issue to light. On the 14th listen to your instincts, they're way ahead of brain.

li

ta

You really need to work hard to find your work/life balance this month. The good news is that, thanks to all your hard work in the past, balance is within reach. Now is the time for self-discipline: Don't work past the point in which you need to take a break.

co s

Pisces

Rather than charging ahead with something new, go through everything you've already started and smooth out any rough edges. You'll go further with this approach. A little upheaval leaves you feeling vulnerable on the 4th, get some sunshine and you’ll feel much better.

ag

nk

Leo

li

Aquarius

A casual get together this month could lead to all kinds of formal propositions both of the business and romantic kind. To make the most of these new opportunities you need to act quickly with your decisions. Don’t think before you leap. Now is the time to just ‘do.’

Cancer

m

It’s a month to pay attention to detail especially on the 4th and 5th. Don't let the fine print escape you, or you could pay dearly for it later. A business problem is not as Capricorn unsurmountable as it seems. Just take things one step at a time and you'll get through this successfully.

Without doubt the businesses in your field that are still advertising are the ones who are getting the calls for your product or services. Even though there is a recession, there are still people around with a disposable income who are looking for your product or service, there are just fewer of them and that is why it is so important to make sure that that they buy from you and not your competitors.

A penniless, eighteen year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, is a question away from winning 20 million rupees on India's ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’ when he is arrested on suspicion of cheating. The Police spend the night probing Jamal's incredible past, from his riveting tales of the slums to his hair-raising encounters with local gangs.

Finally a story arises that Becky actually cares about, and her front-page article catalyzes a chain of events that will transform her life forever.
