2011 - Day 269

Had to do a shhort course yesterday - then have to wait a couple of weeks and be tested to see if I have learnt it. It's to be able to collect blood from the labs for patients .... Vampires have it much easier!

2011 - Day 270

Day off today - so got some washing done, and hung out. Just got it in ready to iron (it's still slightly damp as it's foggy here) and I noticed this poppy ... a stunning colour. But, also the detail within the flower is amazing, isn't it?

Nothing Much To Say - Except To "Pimp" An Icon Competition

Day off today, as I said, and yet didn't get some of the many things done that I needed to do ... including the orchestra accounts, so I can "finish" with them .... as I said I will scribble about my weekend at some point, soon.

Anyway, a night off, and dad's pc is free, so I'm hoping to do some art work.  So, first a "pimp" of, yet another, competition I've joined. -
I just hope I manage to survive longer than Round 1 as its a LIMS .... "last icon maker standing, BtVS style"

So, if any of you want to have a go, they are still accepting new members - go check lims_btvs out ... Hope to see you there!

How Rubber Gloves Are Made

At the hospital I have to wear clean gloves all the time ... so had to laugh when I received this (froma  cousin of mum's) .... so, just remember this the next time you use a pair of rubber gloves, you're going to smile when you think of this:

A dentist noticed that his next patient, a little old lady, was nervous, so he decided to tell her a little joke as he put on his gloves..

'Do you know how they make these gloves?' he asked.

'No, I don't,' she replied.

'Well,' he spoofed, 'there's a building in Canada with a big tank of latex, and workers of all hand sizes walk up to the tank, dip in their hands, let them dry, then peel off the gloves and throw them into boxes of the right size.'

She didn't crack a smile. 'Oh, well. I tried,' he thought.

But five minutes later, during a delicate portion of the procedure, she burst out laughing.

'What's so funny?' he asked.

'I was just envisioning how condoms are made!'


Be afraid of old ladies!
Be very afraid!
They have been there and done everything!

Launceston Pic Scam

As I said over the weekend I was going to post about my quick trip. On Friday I went up to Bude as it was last orchestra concert of the year. I went up a day early and stopped at Launceston (pronounced Lorn-stun) on the way there. I had driven round the outside of the town very regularily, but had never stopped.

As I said in my 366 image, the castle, which was started just after the Norman Conquest, looks just like a "proper" fairytale picture.
