Cat with 1000 faces

January 30, 2009

I was looking at random cat videos when I came across this random video.

Watch the cat get more and more fed up with its owner behaviour. I predict a riot here later.

I wonder if they got scratched afterwards

Cat in the bath

January 30, 2009

Now you’ve probably read that and are expecting a cat sitting or going toilet in the empty bath.

Nah, that’s normal, no this cat is playing in a few inches of water and enjoying it.

Little fella really seems to be a happy bunny

I know cats are mad but this one takes the biscuit.

Most will run up and down, and bite your feet, or steal your socks

S/S The Emerald

January 29, 2009

Now heres a bit of news I know alot of people were waiting on.

The S/S Emerald, formerly charted by Tui cruises from Louis Cruise Lines, is soon to be back on the cruising market.

Louis Cruise Lines confirmed that the ship will be sailing from Cyprus for mini cruises.

There is no information on their website so far.

This is good news for the thousands of passengers who travelled with this ship under the Tui colours for 10 years and formed a close association with the graceful lady of the seas.  Enjoying her small but comfortable lounges and fantastic sailing conditions.

Of course, the future may not be bright for the last sailing ‘American built’ cruise ship.  Tui dropped her charter before the 2010 intorduction of the new SOLAS regulations, where ships like the S/S Emerald, will not be allowed to sail.  Dependent on the popularity of the S/S Emarld sailing under Louis Cruise Lines own cruises, will we find out if the company will invest in an upgrade.

This is not completely out the question.  In 1987 the ship was refitted to include extra decks, which guaranteed her extended life for another 13 years.

The Emerald is now 50 Years old , only time will tell if she is allowed to make 53.

On behalf of the passengers and fans of the S/S Emerald, our hopes go on that she will be successfull in her new life sailing for Louis Cruise Lines direct.

Virgin Atlantic TV ad – 25 years, still red hot – how great is this?

January 27, 2009

Everyone must have now seen this advert.

Now, if anyone out there is my age group, (*blushes* as he reveals mid thirties), this advert is a cracker.

Whoever did the concept for Virgin Atlantic really did their homework. Right from the start, with the newspaper salesman with the obvious strike headlines, look to the back. Theres an old chocolate coloured Austin Princess and a Ford Escort estate. Even the bus looks correct.

As we step into the advert, have you sat and tried to spot every element from 1983 that you remember .

Come on, join in and highlight the items we really thought fab at the time.

Austin Princess / Escort Estate – outside
Frankie goes to hollywood – relax – soundtrack to advert
Mobile phone – inside
Cleaner with bright yellow walkman tape machine – inside
Kids playing on Asteroids – inside
Other machine is PacMan – inside
Our Price record shop – inside
Big country LP – outside our price
Proper Policemen without huge guns – inside
Wimpy- inside
A bender burger – ouside wimpy eaten by the guy with the NHS Specs
NHS Specs – when there was only one type of glasses from the NHS
Child with a rubic cube – inside
child with my little pony – inside
classic big box mobile yellow eletronic game – inside
classic flip boards rather than digital displays, with the clip, clip clip noises as they change – inside
Alannah Currie of the Thompson Twins – posing for photos in classic 80’s clothes (or a look alike)

So can anyone else spot more, come on lets break this down. Its a quality advert that should really be entered for the advertising awards. Visit Virgin Atlantic to see their site
