You Want Good TV

You can't handle it!!

Okay, so I'm on a bit of a caffeine freak out right now but seriously, the best TV show I've seen in 2010? Sherlock

No $#!+ Sherlock. An English show that modernizes Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's logical detective character, utilizing mobile phones, iPads and a great take on Dr. Watson.

Definitely worth a peek.

But not this one, this is a bit advanced even for a Holmes fan like myself:

Or buy it from Amazon, below.

A Thousand Words is Worth a Picture

Really? Think I've lost the plot a bit? Well here is the picture of my blog 'For I Am Man - Hear Me Roar'.

Wordle: Hear me roar, for I am man

So what do you think of that then eh?? So 'man', 'fine' and 'sex' were most oft used. Makes you think...

Thanks to

Focusing on the Tool — It’s not just for Gun Control

(Oct. 17) — An Italian region struggling with policing the sex trade along a heavily wooded road has come up with a novel solution: Just chop down the forest.
That’s right — they can’t change the behavior so they are going after the tool that is used.
According to the Guardian newspaper, the regional government of Abruzzo in central Italy has tried 24-hour patrols, raids and cameras to curb the rampant sex trade on the Bonifica del Tronto road — all to no effect.

Finally, Angelo di Paolo, the regional government’s notoriously decisive public works chief, decided that fighting the forest would be much easier then fighting the sex trade. He declared that all the vegetation on or around the banks of the River Tonto would be cut down.
If that doesn’t illustrate the stupidity of focusing on the tools instead of the criminals, I don’t know what does.
Please join the discussion.

Just wrong - so very wrong

Every now and then I find something on the interwebs that warns me to stop, take a breath and look around.

Here are a few of those instances in picture form:


Larry Correia's new book

 From LawDog's amazing bloggage!

If you liked Monster Hunter International, you'll be pleased to hear that Larry Correia's new book, Monster Hunter Vendetta, is now out.

The ad for Barnes and Noble, and the Amazon ad at the bottom;


If you've already read it, be sure to post a review on one (or both) of those sites.

I've not yet read this one, but I know that I'll enjoy it.

For I Am Man - Hear Me Roar

Because I’m a man, when I lock my keys in the Car, I will fiddle with a coat hanger long After hypothermia has set in. Calling AAA is not an option. I will win.

Because I’m a man, when the car isn’t running very well, I will pop the hood and stare at the engine as if I know what I’m looking at. If another man shows up, one of us will say to the other, “I used to be able to fix these things, but now with all these computers and everything, I wouldn’t know where to start.” We will then drink a couple of beers and break wind, as a form of holy communion.

Because I’m a man, when I catch a cold, I need someone to bring me soup and take care of me while I lie in bed and moan. You’re a woman. You never get as sick as I do, so for you, this is no problem.

Because I’m a man, I can be relied upon to purchase basic groceries at the store, like milk or bread. I cannot be expected to find exotic items like “cumin” or “tofu.” For all I know, these are the same thing…

Because I’m a man, when one of our appliances stops working, I will insist on taking It apart, despite evidence that this will just cost me twice as much once the repair person gets here and has to put it back together.

Because I’m a man, I must hold the TV remote control in my hand while I watch TV. If the thing has been misplaced, I may miss a whole show looking for it, Though one time I was able to survive by holding a Nokia 6110 instead .

Because I’m a man, there is no need to ask me what I’m thinking about. The true answer is always either sex, cars, sex, guns, sex, sports or sex. I have to make up something else when you ask, so just don’t ask.

Because I’m a man, you don’t have to ask me if I liked the movie. Chances Are, if you’re crying at the end of it, I didn’t… And if you are feeling amorous afterward … Then I will certainly at least remember the name and recommend it to others.

Because I’m a man, I think what you’re wearing is fine. I thought what you were wearing five minutes ago was fine, too. Either pair of shoes is fine. With the belt or without it, looks fine. It does not make your ass look too big. It was the pasta and potatoes and margaritas that did that. Your hair is fine. You look fine. Can we just go now?

Because I’m a man, and this is, after all, 2010, I will share equally in the housework. You just do the laundry, the cooking, the cleaning, the vacuuming, And the dishes, and I’ll do the rest. Like wandering around in the garden with a beer, wondering what to do.

This has been a public service message for women hoping to better understand men.

5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe

  We had a couple of friends (or is it a brace or a clutch of friends?) stay over for the weekend. Atone point our Danish friend - no really, she is from Denmark, not made of pastry, asked if I had heard of the 5 Minute Chocolate Cake Recipe.

Not only had I heard of it, made it and loved it, but I was sure I had blogged about it.

Well bugger me if I can't find it anywhere on the site! I must be going insane. So here it is in all it's yummy glory:

Five Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

4 tablespoons flour

4 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons cocoa

1 egg

3 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons oil

3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)

a small splash of vanilla extract

1 large coffee mug

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high). The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
Really enjoy!!
