Land Rovers Modified Beefed up

Beefed up Land Rovers

Land Rover Big Wheels 1

We saw these really beefed up Landrovers on a quiet country road in Scotland.

Land Rover Big Wheels 2

The one above has skilfully been engineered with the addition of over sized wheels and the one below someone somehow has managed to get some smart caterpillar tracks on what where the wheels so they both must really be able to go nearly anywhere.

Funny - Excuses for no work today

Life After Death

"Do you believe in life after death?" the boss asked one of his employees.

"Yes, sir," the new recruit replied.

"Well, then, that makes everything just fine," the boss went on, "because after you left early yesterday to go to your grandmother's funeral, she stopped in to see you."


More reasons to not turn up for work

The blankets were too heavy for me to lift so I was stuck in bed all day.

The psychiatrist said it was an excellent session. He even gave me this jaw restraint so I won't bite things when I am startled.

Hello, I've used all of my sick days and I'm calling in dead.

Constipation has made me a walking time bomb.

I'm not coming to work to day because my computer has got a virus. And my computer means more to me then this job

I sprained my wrist cooking dinner in the microwave last night.

I didn't come to work because I forgot to.

I've played all the games that came with the company's operating system software. Until you get some new ones, I'm not coming in.

Reasons for sickness from work

If it's all the same to you, I won't be coming in to work. The voices told me to clean all the guns today.

When I got up this morning I took two Ex-Lax in addition to my Prozac. I can't get off the john, but I feel good about it.

On Saturday, I set half the clocks in my house ahead an hour and the other half back an hour, and spent 18 hours in some kind of space-time continuum loop, reliving Sunday (right up until the explosion). I was able to exit the loop only by reversing the polarity of the power source exactly e*log(pi) clocks in the house. While simultaneously rapping my dog on the snout with a rolled up Times. Accordingly, I will be in late, or early.

My stigmata are acting up.

I can't come in to work today because I'll be stalking my previous boss, who fired me for not showing up for work. Okay?

I have a rare case of 48-hour projectile leprosy, but I know we have that deadline to meet....

I am stuck in the blood pressure machine down at the Food Giant.

Yes, I seem to have contracted some attention-deficit disorder and, hey, how about them 'Skins, huh?   So, I won't be able to, yes, could I help you? No, no, I'll be sticking with Sprint, but thank you for calling.

Constipation has made me a walking time bomb.

I just found out that I was switched at birth. Legally, I shouldn't come to work, knowing my employee records may now contain false information.

The psychiatrist said it was an excellent session. He even gave me this jaw restraint so I won't bite things when I am startled.

The dog ate my car keys. We're going to hitchhike to the vet.

I prefer to remain an enigma.

My mother-in-law has come back as one of the Undead and we must track her to her coffin to drive a stake through her heart and give her eternal peace. One day should do it.

I can't come to work today because the EPA has determined that my house is completely surrounded by wetlands and I have to arrange for helicopter transportation.

I am converting my calendar from Julian to Gregorian.

I am extremely sensitive to a rise in the interest rates.

Steamy Video Snowdon Mountain Railway North Wales

Snowdon Mountain Railway,  Llanberis, North Wales

We spent a week in Anglesey, Wales and we decided to go and see Mount Snowdon, the biggest Mountain in England and Wales as far as we know. We should have walked up to the top to get the exercise (phew!) but decided instead to take the old fashioned steam train. If you like trains  and steam trains in particular you will like these. If you want to visit it's a good idea to check the weather forecast as the mountain can be covered in mist and rain and some days the trains are not running. We where very lucky with the weather and it was a great day out.

If you have been on the Snowdon Mountain Railway, let us know what you think below.
