a few amusing news articles........
From time to time some interesting news headlines, edited and presented by (iwmpop) mr le marquis, together with a little logiciel of something or other, for your use! This time it's a "food value calculator.......


It appears that a Priest was sent off in a recent football match for throwing his shirt at the referee. Good job they weren't playing in full flowing dress, or mr. le Cure may have found himself standing in his "undies" - or worse!
The supporters would have been in 7th heaven..!


re-usable and re-cyclable
...... - it's the modern way...!

Did you know that during the D-Day landings, the disembarking troops used Condoms to cover the barrels of their rifles, to stop the sea water from getting down the barrel! Must have been French dimension condoms, considering the "thinnish" size of a rifle barrel! 
Different usage, condoms to stop unwanted things getting in, rather than OUT...or both..!


Another interesting fact is that it takes more 
Free Software to Look up Nutritional Value of Corn, Mushrooms, Celery, Beets, Apples, etc    to eat, chew and digest a branch of celery than the celery itself produces! 
Great for ladies diats! 
Which brings us to your little "gadget" - this time, it's a "food value calculator" - you can find it and download it here:


A recent comment from a New Yorker, made on the latest scandal with the Governor of that State, and which sums up perfectly the profession of Politician:
"It's the opposite of a bath - you go in clean, and come out filthy!"



A Group, naming itself "Pimlico Plumbers", in London, England, is on the way to making a new record! 
One of their employees (he cleans the cars in the depot) is going to try to run in the London Marathon this year, to set up a new World  Record!

Nothing unusual - you might think - except that "Buster" is 101 years old! 
He puts his fitness and longivity down to doing nothing for his health in particular, keeping working, and drinking around 5-6 bottles of a special beer, brewed by a local Brewery, called "Buster's Bitter"

Jeez... if I had to drink that stuff, I'd prefer to kick the bucket!
