Weekly Round Up (Edition:4)
To celebrate the fact that my blog has now had well over 1,000 hits, I think I might just push out the boat and give you 5 stories for this week :p
England has had a bit of a washout week, as many sun worshippers and observers may know, we had the Summer Solstice, unfortunately for the 1500 gatherers at Stonehenge, they had a lovely view of clouds getting steadily brighter, but not a glance of the rising sun. Have no fear though, because if you missed out on seeing the sun in England, you can got to New York and experience it all over again! The Manhattenhenge happens twice a year around the 12th & 13th of July. Here are the best streets to see it on..
Meet Mugly he’s an 8 year old rescue Chinese Crested. Mugly just got the prized award of Ugliest Dog In The World. Yep, that’s right. There is an award for ugly dogs or let’s call them the dogs with a face that only their mummy could love and their mummy lives 5,000 miles away. The er proud recipient of this award is one of many Chinese Crested’s to win the award.
Which brings me swiftly to this article. Its not exactly ‘new’ especially after being published in 2010, but I thought it was funny: 100 weird laws from around the world features some of the funniest laws, apparently its illegal to make funny faces at a dog in Oklahoma, USA and in Samoa its an offence to forget your wife’s birthday!
Euro 2012 is heating up, and its not just on pitch where things are heated. In Krakow, Poland, Chef’s made the Biggest Lasagne in the world in honour of the Italian team! When you watch the video of it being cut, it made me feel more queasy than hungry to be honest.
And finally Julian Assange is seeking refuse in the Ecuador Embassy for what has been almost a week now. But Assange can’t leave now as he was on bail with a curfew of being home at the stated abode by 10pm and not leaving until 8am the following morning. Having slept at the Embassy, he broke his bail conditions, so now even if he just waggles a pinky finger out the window, he will be back on the ‘Queens’ soil and can be arrested immediately. His supporters have rallied round the Embassy, showing their dedication and support (can I go yet?). With over 25,000 applicants seeking asylum in Ecuador, he may be there a while, but I hope he attains the Asylum he needs and deserves :).
That’s your 5 stories for now and if there aren’t 5 stories, well then it boils down to the fact that there are 3 types of people in this world: those that can count and those that can’t!
Thank you for being as loyal as you all have been to me, it means so much to me.
That’s all for now!
