Okay Kaboodle, ENOUGH already!! Just quit with the junk mail!!

So I signed up for kaboodle (the online shopping community) last year. I quickly realised it wasn't for me and stopped using it. Then a few months ago I started getting their weekly newsletter. It bugs me because I'm really not interested in it so I click the link to go to the site and unsubscribe. The next week, another newsletter. Okay, so maybe I didn't hit the unsubscribe button or something - I do it again, next week another newsletter. So I unsubsribe AGAIN and log into the account and change all of my notification settings, save it and log out. Next week, another newsletter. So I log in to kaboodle AGAIN, after unsubscribing AGAIN and change the email address on my account to a junk address I have and then I reply to the email telling them I unsubscribed 4 times already. So guess what? Yeah, I just got another kaboodle crappy newsletter. Are you kidding me?


Seriously, you do.

The Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012

On the weekend of 2nd-5th June 2012 (yes, thet IS a long weekend, lol) Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II will celebrate her 60 year anniversary as our sovereign with her Diamond Jubilee. Exhibitions and events to mark the occasion began as early as March 2011 with the planting of trees in an ongoing project to create a four hundred and sixty acre wood in Leicestershire. Watch this short clip of presenter Clive Anderson and HRH Princess Anne launching the project.

Several touring exhibitions will begin making rounds of the UK in January 2012 displaying both portraits and photography of the Queen. Street parties are being planned around the country by communities and organisations in order to join in the celebrations.

Do you believe in "traditional" ghosts?

I wrote a squidoo lens based on experiences I had many years ago - don't ask me why I added it to squidoo instead of here, with hindsight I should have put it here but it's too late now, lol.

I don't believe in ghosts, at least not in the normal sense, but I HAVE had four experiences in my life where I saw "something" that was akin to a ghost. I have a very analytical, scientific mind so what I saw really perplexes me. You can read more about it here:
