Special Year 2011 + Year Of The Money + Building Work

Year Of The Money ???
Now that made you sit up didn't it?

I received this by email today.

This is all very intriguing:

This year we're going to experience four unusual dates.???
We have already experienced the January dates . . . . oh and for my American pals of course this in UK notation, dd/mm/yy





and that's not all...

Take the last two digits of the year in which you were born -now add the age
you will be this year, and the result will be 111 for everyone!

For example - suppose I was was born in 1957 (I wish LOL), therefore: 57+54=111 mathematics!??
Special year!

AND . . . . this is the year of Money!!!
(So make sure you buy lottery tickets every week and don't forget your pal, Eddie LOL.)

This year October will have 5 Sundays, 5 Mondays and 5 Saturdays.

This happens only every 823 years.??
(Didn't you always want to know that?)

These particular years are known as 'Moneybags' the proverb goes that if you
send this to eight good friends (already today translated from the Brazilian
version!)? money will appear in the next four days as is explained in
Chinese feng-shui.? its a mystery, but its worth a try, good luck.


I have been pitifully inactive in BlogLand of late.  I am busy decorating at my daughter's first house which she has bought recently.  We are all so pleased she and her fiancee are now on the housing ladder.  There have been extensive building alterations with walls knocked down, other walls bricked up, kitchen and bathroom gutted and redesigned.  The builders were very 'gun ho' and bashed the walls down with wild enthusiasm yielding heavy sledge hammers.  Typical of Mr B (for builder) in general, I would say (LOL) - mess everywhere - us painters and decorators always have to clear up after them and make good their imperfections and add a bit of polish.  My word - dust and mess everywhere.  The electricians are just as bad, chasing cables and double sockets into the walls with wild abandon with their electric hammer chisels - what a mess!!  And as for plumbers! well, water everywhere!!  Oh and the plasterer!! How the heck he does that without dropping huge dollops onto the floor like elephant dung I shall never know!! Hang on a minute there are large dollops on the floor!! LOL Guess who will clear it all up? You've got it - me, the decorator!! LOL.  I've seen it all before on building sites, which reminds me I owe you some funny posts about this era of my life. The creative work on this job is taking a little longer but order is gradually coming out of chaos, thereby reversing the second law of thermo dynamics.

In addition to this I am building up my double glazing agency with quite a degree of success I am pleased to say.

Several of my American pals are not sure what I mean by double glazing.  I shall be writing a post on this soon.

Meanwhile if you feel like a really good belly laugh please pop over to my other blog, Plato's Procrastinations, and Mr Dave Allen has a classic treat for you HERE , plus a funny story from your's truly.

Wedding Anniversary

We celebrated our wedding anniversary recently - goodness me, time has flown by.
Here we are all 'starry eyed' and ready for our journey in life into the unknown.
Isn't Mrs Bluelights a beauty? - still is!  We are on the way to our reception dinner.
Thank you for 38 wonderful years, my dear, and for two wonderful children.
The horn rimmed glasses are long pre SpecSavers . . . . LOL . . . and the style was very popular at the time.  Reminds me of the guitarist Hank Marvin of The Shadows, who played for Cliff Richard.

It would be nice to be young again, knowing what we know now! LOL
