Fish and chips and Killergy's 2006 April Classic Red

Saturday evening treat:

Fish and chips from the local Wellington Village Fish Shop, washed down with a half bottle of Ben Killery's delightful 2006 Premium Dry Red. Aaaah the simple pleasures of life.

And no washing up

Lots of noise about Earth Hour but we are doing our bit to keep the lights ON... will I rot in hell?? Maybe...

But the Eagles aren't going so well... let's watch New Tricks.

Oh damn, another repeat... that means twitter here we are

The Power Of Momentum

I remember someone sharing a story about momentum with me once….

‘It was in the 1800’s, and an old man was standing at the new railway station watching as the steam engine was starting to shoot puffs of steam up and into the air. He muttered under his breath to his companion, ‘They’ll never get it started. They’ll never get it started.’

Then the whistle blew and the powerful engine began to turn its wheels. The seemingly immovable monstrosity started to edge forward little by little until it picked up further speed, and before long the only evidence of its existence were the billowing puffs of smoke that could be faintly seen in the distance.

It was at that point that the old man turned once again to his companion and said, ‘They’ll never get it stopped. They’ll never get it stopped.’

The power of momentum.

What's for Dinner

Three women friends, one in a casual relationship, one engaged to be married and one a long-time wife, met for drinks after work.

The conversation eventually drifted towards how best to spice up their sex lives. After much discussion, they decided to surprise their men by engaging in some S&M role playing.

The following week they met up again to compare notes: Sipping her drink, the single girl leered and said, 'Last Friday at the end of the work day I went to my boyfriend's office wearing a leather coat. When all the other people had left, I slipped out of it and all I had on was a leather bodice, black stockings and stiletto heels. He was so aroused that we made mad passionate love on his desk right then and there!'

The engaged woman giggled and said, 'That's pretty much my story! When my fiancé got home last Friday, he found me waiting for him in a black mask, leather bodice, black hose and stiletto pumps. He was so turned on that we not only made love all night, he wants to move up our wedding date!'

The married woman put her glass down and said, 'I did a lot of planning. I made arrangements for the kids to stay over at Grandma's. I took a long scented-oil bath and then put on my best perfume. I slipped into a tight leather bodice, a black garter belt, black stockings and six-inch stilettos. I finished it off with a black mask.When my husband got home from work, he grabbed a beer and the remote, sat down and yelled,

'Hey, Batwoman, what's for dinner?''

Half Empty Or Half Full?

A new Fortune Small Business/Zogby Poll has found that a little less than half of small business owners say that they have been affected by the recession.

What is really remarkable to me about these results is that if you listen to the media, every business in the US is on the brink of disaster.

The fact that 57% have not been damaged gives us hope that the entrepreneurial engine we need to pull us out of the recession is ready to grow when the time is right.

This sounds right from what our customers are saying.

Alpha Inventions and Traffic Generation

We are running some experiments to try and differentiate between page views and actual visits from Alpha Inventions - notwithstanding the fact that what makes people “click” on your page is whether it is interesting enough for them to want to read what it has to say. That is the final measurement of the value of your own site.

But, certainly getting Alpha Inventions viewers to see your page on their screen and to have the opportunity to make the choice of “visiting” you or not has got be to your advantage. As I say, this is an experiment in progress and we will be reporting our outcomes very soon.

Now you are here have a look at the Maverick Spirit Newsletter and let me know what you think.

Dead Ringer = England 1500's

England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places to bury people.

So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a bone-house, and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive. So they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell.

Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the graveyard shift.) to listen for the bell; thus, someone could be, saved by the bell.

Or was considered a.. dead ringer..
