Tim Eves was playing jogging on Wii before he started keeling in front of his girlfriend and friend. He was declared dead on arrival at local hospital.

He was thought to be "fit and healthy" since he's been physically active, a scout leader, and always enjoyed cycling and fishing. They told his family his death might have been caused by something called "Sudden Adult Death Syndrome."

It definitely was sudden because his mom recalled talking to him on the phone and Tim saying he had a kebab and a glass of port just a few minutes before the collapse.

Worse, that was the same day he came home from Portugal to celebrate her mom's 50th birthday.

What a sad but real reminder for us to Carpe Diem!

Happy Birthday Mom! (0)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE BEST MOM IN THE WORLD!!! :)

MOTHER'S ARE THE SWEETEST.

Our mother is the sweetest and
Most delicate of all.
She knows more of paradise
Than angels can recall.

She's not only beautiful
But passionately young,
Playful as a kid, yet wise
As one who has lived long.

Her love is like the rush of life,
A bubbling, laughing spring
That runs through all like liquid light
And makes the mountains sing.

And makes the meadows turn to flower
And trees to choicest fruit.
She is at once the field and bower
In which our hearts take root.

She is at once the sea and shore,
Our freedom and our past.
With her we launch our daring ships
Yet keep the things that last.

~Nick Gordon~

la la la loooove you!

Yes, you read that right.

Report says Lucy Baxter, who campaigns for equal rights for Down’s Syndrome sufferers, is so desperate for 21-year-old Otto to have his first sexual experience she is considering paying a prostitute to sleep with him. She won't mind it if he went to a brothel in Amsterdam. Lucy thinks this is a way for his son to be normal - to do what normal people would do.

She says she would be pleased if her son Otto brought a woman back to the house for sex.

I don’t have a problem with any of it. He’s going to Las Vegas for a few days to promote himself as an actor so who knows, he might get lucky over there.

“When he gets back home I’ve lined up a few dating agencies for him to join. I always encourage him to go to nightclubs and other places where people pick up women.”

“I’d also love it if Otto got a girlfriend pregnant. It’s another experience everyone goes through so why not him? The chances of him having a baby with Down’s are no more than anyone else.”
I just know not all normal people would force it upon themselves. He's only 21 and it'll come. Why the pressure? Then again, that's just my opinion.

A soon to be 89 year old black belter (0)

John Fleming, a British war veteral will earn a black belt in ju-jitsu at 89!
Report says

The grandad-of-four, who plans to try kickboxing next, said: “It’s an indescribable feeling, it’s my passion.”

The OAP of Basildon, Essex, added: “I’ve been accosted in town. People see a little man with grey hair and put their hands on me, but I knew what to do, enough to see them off.”
Don't you young ones just get challenged by this? I believe self defense is very important. Some unfortunate incidents happen when you're totally not expecting them. Won't hurt to think a step in advance, right? Nice one, grandpa!

15 Effects of Recession on our lives (2)

6:46 PM by , under

It's been tough for everybody since the past few months. We witnessed even the biggest companies lay off thousands of workers to keep from closing down. And unfortunately, some actually do close down. Now employment is a big issue in the current economic state of the world. How else does it affect our lives? How does it affect even merely our daily activities?

Read this compilation of the top 15 effects recession has on our lives. This report is more UK-based but the rest of the world can very much relate to it:

out: Baths
in: Showers

Long, lazy baths, which use far more hot water than showers, are becoming a thing of the past. Unilever reports that sales of bubble baths are down while demand for shower gels is up.

out: pints in pub
in: cans at home

Drinkers are calling time on pubs – and staying in with a four-pack. Pub beer sales fell 10 per cent in the last year.

out: hairdressers
in: hair dye kits

Get those plastic gloves on... An Asda survey found that hair dye sales are up 27 per cent – and four in 10 customers were cutting back on trips to the hairdressers. Stylist Andrew Barton revealed a 67 per cent surge in demand for his blonde hair products compared to last year, with women hitting the (bleach) bottle to lift the economic gloom.

out: bottled water
in: tap water

Good news for the environment – sales of still bottled water are down 15 per cent year on year, say Asda. Why pay when freebies are on tap?

out: fresh food
in: frozen food

More of us are stocking up on food that will last longer.

Demand for Sainsbury’s frozen peas has doubled year on year. Frozen prawns were up 400 per cent and frozen garlic bread rocketed by 40 per cent. Sales at Iceland are also up 12 per cent, while Hull-based chain Heron and Leeds-based Frozen Value are ahead more than 11 per cent.

Figures from saveborrowspend. co.uk show sales of tinned products rose eight per cent in a year.

out: shop sarnies
in: packed lunches

The takeaway sandwich could soon be brown bread. More than a third of us say we are buying fewer shop sarnies than a year ago, says a Sainsbury’s poll. And 15 per cent of us have stopped buying them completely. Meanwhile, sales of lunch-boxes are up 68 per cent at Robert Dyas, as we save dough by making our own.

out: branded food
in: own-labels

Shoppers are checking out more own-label value lines. Sainsbury’s Basics range is growing at 40 per cent a year and six in 10 customers buy own-brand items.

out: foreign hols
in: british breaks

Who needs the costly Costas when you’ve got the good old British seaside to explore? The weak pound and a drop in disposable income has led to a seven per cent fall in the number of Brits holidaying abroad in a year, says the Office for National Statistics figures. Meanwhile, at Pontins bookings are up 20 per cent on the year.

out: new clothes
in: mending

Fashion is falling out of fashion as we make do and mend. Retail sales of clothing and household goods are down 1.8 per cent on last year, according to the Office for National Statistics. Meanwhile, John Lewis reports sales of buttons are up 43 per cent and Argos says sales of sewing machines are 50 per cent higher.

out: special cleaners
in: Multi-purpose

The demand for niche-cleaning products has been a washout, with sales dropping six per cent since last year. Meanwhile sales of multi-purpose household products are up by two per cent.

out: new cars
in: car repairs

Sales of new cars since January have stalled (30 per cent down on last year say the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders). Drivers are repairing old motors rather than buying new models.

out: shop cakes
in: home baking

Stork margarine – a staple of wholesome home-baking – is flying off supermarket shelves, according to makers Unilever.

out: divorce
in: staying wed

Hard times can push even the strongest relationship to the limit, but couples going through a rocky patch are making more of an effort to stay together – because they can’t afford not to. Relate counsellor Denise Knowles says: “In the past couples may have split up and put their house on the market, but nothing is selling so they are stuck.”

out: Shop veg
in: grow your own

Sales of vegetable seeds from B&Q are up by 27 per cent, and an ICM poll found that 26 per cent more people are growing their own fruit and veg.

out: eating out
in: home cooking

Swanky restaurants may be off the menu when you are cutting back, but you can still enjoy posh nosh at home. At Asda sales of curry ingredients leapt by 40 per cent last year as did demand for luxury ingredients like balsamic vinegar (up 70 per cent) and olives (50 per cent). Sales of Knorr stock cubes are growing by “double-digits” as more people choose to cook from scratch, and sales of ready-meals also went down by 40 per cent.

Tim Kretschmer, a 17 year old son of a wealthy man and gun collector walked in at Albertville school where he got expelled from and killed students, 3 teachers and a passerby before shooting himself.

Report says

Police said he walked calmly along corridors and through classrooms, shooting his victims in the head as children ran and jumped from windows to escape him.
I just have to ask, What is happening to the world?

Factually - Actually! 1

8:04 PM by , under ,

CHOCOLATES CARROTS clock AIRPLANE snowflakes

Actually Factually contains the truth behind childhood beliefs about everything from science to human nature...

Factually: Eating chocolate gives you spots.

Actually: Eating a small amount of chocolate can fight spots. Hormones, not chocolate, instruct the glands that produce the oils in your skin which trap dirt and cause spots.

Factually: Carrots help you to see in the dark.

Actually: It's a deliberate lie from World War Two. British pilots were shooting down more German planes than usual thanks to a new long-distance radar. To keep the radar secret, the Government spread a rumour that pilots had been put on a high-carrot diet to improve their night vision.

Factually: Goldfish have a three-second memory.

Actually: Goldfish can remember how to repeat what they did up to 11 months later. But claiming they can't remember what's on the other side of the bowl may make us feel better about putting them in one.

Factually: Bats are blind.

Actually: Some have better sight than humans. But good sight hardly matters in the dark. Bats rely on echo location system to find their way.

Factually: Chameleons change colour to match their background.

Actually: They can't mimic all colours, but they do have four layers of skin containing pigments which can produce black, white, blue, yellow, green and red combinations. Stress, anger, fear or calm make them change colour.

Factually: Heinz have 57 varieties.

Actually: There are thousands. The labels boast of 57 because founder Henry Heinz thought the numbers five and seven were special.

Factually: Ostriches hide their heads in the sand.

Actually: If this were true the birds would suffocate. The idea may come from the fact male ostriches dig nests with their beaks.

Factually: London's Big Ben is a famous clock.

Actually: Big Ben isn't the clock - or the tower - but the name of the largest of the clock's five bells.

Factually: Cows breaking wind add to global warming.

Actually: Their burping is the main problem. It emits methane gas.

Factually: Lightning never strikes twice.

Actually: It often does. Tall buildings have lightning rods to take the current into the earth because they are at risk.

Factually: Christopher Columbus discovered America.

Actually:He never set foot there. He is thought to have landed in the Bahamas, thinking it was India.

Factually: The Wright brothers invented the aeroplane.

Actually: They were pipped to the post 55 years earlier by English engineer John Stringfellow who, with his partner William Samuel Henson, built a steam-driven plane which flew just over nine metres.

Factually: Lemmings jump off cliffs.

Actually: This event was "captured" on camera in 1958 Disney film White Wilderness. Further investigation found the film crew took the animals there and herded them off the cliff to provide a sad ending.

If you're feeling disillusioned, at least some facts you might think are myths are actually true...

Factually: No two snowflakes are identical.

Actually: In 1885 Wilson Bentley of Vermont took photos of 5,000 using a microscope - and none was the same.

Manuel Uribe, World's heaviest man weighing 1,230 lbs will now have a customized transporter. It will be a Chevrolet Astrovan with a bed on the back of the van.

This will allow him to go around town with his wife and hopefully manage a business.

This is great news for someone who has been confined to his bed for more than 6 years. Way to go! And keep up with that exercise.

For men 5'8" and under 1

12:26 AM by , under , ,

Instead of men buying a jacket bigger than their real size and getting it altered, why not a store for shorter men? This is the question Jimmy Au's For Men 5'8" and Under answered when he opened a store with shorter clothes racks and shorter mannequins.

Height, for a man, is the ultimate power marker. An added inch of height is equivalent to an extra $30,000 year of salary, on average, when it comes to attracting a mate, says Andrew Trees, author of "Decoding Love," a book about the science of attraction. Height also affects earnings -- though less dramatically: Each inch earns you about $600 more per year in salary after controlling for variables like education, he says.
Wow really?

But they also say that a man's height also depends on how he presents himself. So if he feels tall, people will see him as tall and same goes for feeling short. Reports say "One out of three men in the United States is under 5 feet 8 inches tall." This 1/3 deserves a store which would make them feel like they belong. A store which would allow them to just pick out a pair of pants, try them on, purchase and wear right away. No alterations, fitting just right.

Their website for online shopping will greet you with this "
Welcome to Jimmy Au's For Men 5'8" and Under… designer fashion tailored for today’s shorter man who doesn’t want to look short."

QUEEN BLOGGER .. of anything & everything interesting!

By anything and everything, I literally mean ANYTHING & EVERYTHING! It's really my mood that dictates what I discuss here. Topics will range from Fashion, News, Fun, Activities, Internet, Gossip, Hollywood, Movies, Sports, Politics, Philosophy, Culture, etc.

Now you know what I mean. In this hectic, man eat man world, most of you forget to have fun. You miss out on so much because your everyday is becoming so work-centered. Ugh it's disgusting. You miss out on life and what it really means to live. People have different interests so I don't want to just talk about one thing here. I myself am interested in so many things and I get bored with just reading about one single topic over and over again.

I'm here to change that.

Browse around and save yourself from getting wrinkled foreheads from all that stress. Here will be my melting pot of my oh so many interests.

Enjoy and make sure you drop by again! Bisous!
