I’ve had a busy old week, this week, so I’ve been relaxing by web-hopping all over the place.

Most of you have probably read Mrs Giggle’s rant on erotic romance, but for those of you who haven’t, go take a look. It is rather amusing. If anybody else had written this, I probably would have dedicated a whole blog to it, but we all know Mrs G Tells it how she sees it, and does it very well too, so I’ll just leave you to form your own opinions.

This reader has stopped buying romance’s because of the “billious tripe currently being pumped out by publishing houses”. Bare in mind that this was written a couple of years ago, who knows, she may have gone back to reading romances again.

This guy thinks that romance novels are the used condoms of literature . If you have a heart condition, I wouldn’t even bother reading it cuz you’ll only get mad.

Apparently Eminem is addicted to sleeping pills. Surely he would be constantly asleep, if he was taking them all the time? Oh I get it, this is why he’s so exhausted… Poor thing.

I’ve just spent the last 30 minutes browsing round this website. This is just soooo American. Perhaps the Tall Guy and I should have had our own website to share our love story with the world? *g*
I hear that Al Reynold’s is gay, is that true? Is this another Liza Minelli and David Gest situation? Oh I hope not, the website is too beautiful for it to have all been fake… Check out the wedding pictures. I sure would have liked Hilary Clinton at my wedding…

    Mo Mowlam Posted by Picasa

    The former Northern Ireland Secretary who served in Tony Blair’s cabinet during the first four years of his term, has died at the age of 55.

    Ms Mowlam played a pivotal role in moving the peace process in N. Ireland forward.

    She was one of the most popular figures in British politics, and was credited with brokering the Good Friday agreement, aimed at ending 30 years of sectarian strife in the province.

    She was most famous for removing her wig during the peace talks when things got too tense. She was a real character who spoke her mind, and wasn’t afraid of confrontations. She had a good heart.

    She’d been diagnosed with a brain tumour years before, but she recovered from that after months of treatment.
    She had received a new course of radiotherapy treatment, which affected her balance. Earlier this month she fell and banged her head, and never regained consciousness.

    May you walk with the angels Mo, you were one in a million.
