THE FINAL WORD ON NUTRITIONAfter an exhaustive review of the research literature, here's the final word on nutrition and health.:
1. Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
2. Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
3. Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
4. Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
5. Germans drink beer, eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks
than us.
6. The French eat foie-gras, full fat cheese and drink red wine but still suffer fewer heart
attacks than us

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like.
Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Pink Fairy

Started 2 Sept.2008
last update 14 Sept.2008
now the hair, tons of it !!

Oct. 5th.2008
It's a difficult pattern, so many colours in this quarter,it looks like a cusion on the back of it.
After nearly 2 weeks of very intensive stitching,I've finished 1 quarter of the pattern, the next part will be the arm and face. if it takes me nearly 14 days, to finish 1 part, it should take onother 6 weeks to finish, but I think you should give me a bit more time, just incase !!
wish me luck !!

It doesn't matter if you know me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
And if we've never met in real life, leave me a comment of your favorite post.I wrote and why it was your favorite.
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually really funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you

Why are they being so difficult ?

It is just 6 months ago that my dear Hubby passed, and you would think that things should be settled by now, but NO , the bank still manages to get me upset.
They (the bank) want me to take Ken's name of the joint account ? Why ? I'm not hurting anybody by leaving Ken's name on, I don't HAVE to take it off , I've asked a legal representative just to make sure that I was right !
But they (the bank) said I had to show them an official death certificate, and a letter from the Last will and Testament department to say that Ken's testament is not valid anymore, WHY WHY WHY ?
I was his only next of kin ,we have no children and there are no children from our previous marriages, Ken had no brothers or sisters , so that means what we had when he died, is now mine, doesn't it ? YES ,because it is stated clearly in his OFFICIAL last will and testament, made up by a Notary Public.!
I went to the bank this afternoon and told them that I wanted to close the account , (I had already opened a new account in an other bank.) the girl sorted it all and voila!! I have one thing
less to worry about !!
I'll get there in the end, but didn't think it would take this long !
