Some Lovely Links For All You Lovely People........

Hello. First of all, I'd like to draw your attention to some new links. They are as follows: This Cheese Stands Alone American Housewife Rants. Very Amusing. Trout Factory Notebook From Japan. Nice photos. Castro's Favourite Color Sharp US political blog. Religion Hunter Chap takes a whistle stop tour of religion. Not In My Bible Virulent anti-Bush diatribes. The other new ones have been linked here and elsewhere before. A new Blog Of The Week poll is up at A Mischief Of Magpies. Three cracking blogs on show, so please vote for the one that tickled your fancy the most. On another subject completely, the following revelation had me in shock for a few minutes tonight. Apparently my mother has received from her employers an hour off as a birthday present. I don't think I have the words to decribe the contempt with which I would treat such an insulting gift. Why bother? Some plank somewhere in the company has obviously come up with this wheeze as a way of making it's employees feel more valued. Like the time everyone was 'treated' to a roll and sausage for all their 'hard work over christmas'? If that's valuing your employees i'd hate to see what happens when they decide to treat you like shit. You have two options with employee birthdays/christmas bonuses. Either do it properly or don't do it at all. It would seem this employee should just not do it at all. It's less insulting that way. I must state for the record that these are my opinions on something that was related to me by a third party. My mother was actually not too bothered about her 'gift', though what she thought of the Christmas Sausage Roll is another thing entirely. Goodnight.

Thank you for the nice compliments about Troutfactory Notebook. This blog is quite nice as well, although I suppose I wish I followed football more closely!

Nah, I don't follow football either........I just follow my club, the above mentioned Partick Thistle. We seem to have been conned out of some money and I was a bit annoyed. Normal service has been resumed...............

Your blog is excellent by the way.........It was a pleasure to link to it.
