So Lego, I Don't Get Lego!

Yesterday I walked into a the front room and was treated to the same experience as walking on glass, there was Lego everywhere and the nasty sharp little edges bit and cut my paws, what a shame I wasn't wearing my non-slip booty socks that I am absolutely certain someone will buy me for Christmas - someone who doesn't much care for me of course because we all know I want a Motor Yacht!

I just don't get Lego and can't for the life of me understand the attraction of so many bits and pieces and odd little lego shaped figures. Apparently there is a box of Lego bits that if you have the patience makes something called a Uni Mog and if you are like me this is where you say "so what!"

Why would anyone want to make a lego Uni Mog? I have no idea frankly, and to make matters worse although I have no real clear idea what a 'Uni Mog' looks like I am pretty sure it does't look like the picture below. Just to put the Uni Mog business to bed I should for the sake of detailed reporting say that the Uni Mog is the biggest, most complicated Lego Technic set on sale consists of 2,048 pieces! It costs over $300! What a waste! Imagine for a moment just how many Prawns you can get for three hundred big ones!

Uni Mog

I was in London the other day Eurostarring. I had to make some visits to shops featuring my latest book 'The Cat's Travelogue' and sign them for the throngs of happy people who had waited hours in the rain in Brussels, Paris and London, well I say 'happy' that of course is a little truth wrestling the crowds weren't happy to wait in the rain but they cheered up with a few personally 'pawed' (my way of signing) books.

I had just stepped off the rather dirty Eurostar train and was confronted by the 40 ft high Lego Christmas Tree in the main concourse of St Pancras Station which apparently according to the sign standing, mainly unread, in front of it was made using 600,000 pieces by the children from the Harpenden Explorer Scouts, Edith Neville Primary School in Camden and Copenhagen Primary School in Islington.

Lego Xmas Tree

The forlorn sign under the Christmas Tree where in a normal world wrapped presents would sit goes on to say that the Lego Christmas Tree took the young ones 'just' two months to build.

What a shame they wasted their time, like all things 'Lego' the Lego Christmas looks very little like the real life object. But then the world isn't real is it and the only reason there aren't any presents under the Lego Christmas Tree is that a pile of presents would be a wonderful place to leave a rather 'unchristmasy' bomb.

Do you think that the Lego Christmas Tree was worth all that trouble? Just look at the terrible tyre marks made by the crane thinly that put it together to say nothing of the school time wasted by the children who 'helped' decorate it, surely they would be better off reading err… my books for instance.

It's Time To Go Up To The Mountains Again

As the title correctly says for a lot of us it is time nearly to slide into some shiny Gore-Tex, sharpen our elbows and practice being rude to anyone who gets in our way as preparation for attacking the nearest ski slope! Or it would be if you are going skiing anywhere that caters for the British and German riff raft tourist.

The areas blighted by these ignorant ski slope bullies include most of France, Austria and Italy and unfortunately a lot of the slopes on the west coast of the US.

If you want a nice quiet ski without being knocked over by some idiot who believes that they can ski in-between breaking a leg then the best place to go is, in my case, 'local.'

There is of course is yet another reason to go 'local' this year and that reason is that a lot of the 'popular' (and for 'popular' just substitute 'cheap' ski resorts where the skiing riff raff assemble to knock each other over on the slopes by day and drink each other under the table by night) don't actually have any snow - something to do apparently with global warming.

Still never mind about the riff raff happily they won't be skiing where I am going skiing this year or indeed where we took a little Winter hol at the begging of this year, as you can see from the picture below we went to Switzerland at the beginning of the year.

I have to say that Switzerland is a spooky place. While we were up in the Swiss Mountains we decided to take a tour of the many and various Cheese and Watch factories instead of skiing it is amazing what you will do when you get bored isn't it?

Anyway we hopped on the Snow-Express which is the name for a little coach tour can you imagine our surprise at the name of the tour company? Well happily though of you who are hard of understanding and imagining don't have to imagine actually or indeed to imagine too hard because it's on the back of the bright red coach below.

Swiss www

I have to say that after the unusual experience of our little wwwank-tour we felt rather glad to be back on the ski lifts the next day as you can imagine.

I have to say I love ski lifts, probably more than skiing, well you try skiing with four skis strapped to your feet! Skiing is hard enough to do when you just have the two! Although I don't like the concept of snowboarding I've had a go a couple of times now and think that it's really a way of getting down a snow covered mountain that was probably designed more for Cats to use than for humans. I took to it like a Duck to water.

So this year when I go skiing I won't be getting someone to lug all of my skis to the slopes I will just get them to carry my snowboard instead.

Skilift

Although nothing to do with any of the above really, I mentioned that I was going off skiing in the New Year to Špindlerův Mlýn in the Krkonoše Mountains which is one of the highest and the most popular mountain ranges in Bohemia and indeed the Czech Republic's best known ski areas and a nice group of Czech fans of The Cat who writes blogs made some Cat Cup Cakes just for me, aren't they nice - the cup cakes and the fans!

Why Are Cats So Much Better Than Humans - An Occasional Series By The Cat

1. Seeing in the Dark

Cats are only able to see the same colours as a colour blind person these colours are yellows, blues and violets all of which means Cats can't see reds, greens or oranges. This is because, while the retinas of Cats are similar to humans, they contain two types of light-receptors called rods and cones, humans are different and have more of the cone types than rods and it's these cones that are responsible for colour vision.

Happily Cats and for that matter Dogs (if they really mattered of course) have more rods and it's the rods that are the receptors responsible for seeing in the dark.

Sunglasses Cat

This means that Cats may have poorer colour vision than humans, but fortunately we have far superior night vision, and as an extra bonus we are so much better at tracking movement all of which means that clever Cats can see things eight times better than mere humans in the dark.

For the Record

It must be stated that Cat's, unlike Sid the Sunglass Cat (pictured), do not normally wear sunglasses, or should that read - normal Cats do not normally wear sunglasses?

There Is Something Wrong With This Message, But I Don't Know What It Is!

There definitely is something very wrong with this sign and what it says, but I don't, for the life of me, know what on earth it is, do you?



There Is Something Wrong With This Message But I Don t Know What It Is

I think I know why I have no idea what the human who made this sign was thinking about because I am a nice Cat and I was not only well brought up but I am also really rather innocent.

My NASA Flight Certificate

Space Shuttle Program

I don't know if any of my wonderfully cuddly readers remember my post Nasa Face in Space Update which I published on my wonderful blog in March 4th this year? I am sure they do a lot of people remember blogs from the Cat who writes blogs.

If you remember, that's great; if not just click the link above and catch up with the rest of us and then do feel free to read on because I have something wonderful to tell you and it will probably be more impressive if you are 'up to speed' as they say to the more challenged among us who have a tendency to fall behind.

So now that we are all 'on the same page,' which is course yet another euphemism used when talking to the 'slower ones' among us now that we can't use words like 'remedial,' 'monks,''thick' and so on and so forth, I have something wonderful to tell you!

Yesterday I received my certificate from Nasa which certifies that I took a journey on the second to last Space Shuttle the STS-134 as it's known among us Catsmonaut's. Oddly enough the certificate reads that "the face of The Cat has flown in space aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour on mission STS-134 from May 16 - June 1, 2011."

Shuttle STS134 The Cat

Yes that is what I thought it's an odd way of saying I was there with the guys but you know Americans they do have their own way of tangling with the English language forever wanting it to be more um… 'American' bless them.

Yesterday I signed Space Shuttle Program tribute wall because I just wanted to tell NASA how wonderful they are and if you would like to honour the amazing people who helped to design, build and fly the Space Shuttle, not to mention those who emptied the toilets, then you too can sign the wall and pay tribute to the Space Shuttle Program here Space Shuttle Program Tribute Wall.

I honestly recommend that you do this. NASA do an amazing job and I have always wanted to thank them, for not only letting me fly into space on a safe Space Shuttle, but also for the wonderful work they do, thanks NASA and I know that will mean a lot to all of you over there in the US.

'Puss In Boots' - The Rumours

I have been asked constantly recently a range of questions about poor old Dreamworks' latest chump of a movie 'Puss In Boots!'

Puss in Boots

The questions range include;

1. Is there any thing I can do to help Dreamworks write either a funny or successful movie (or preferably both) in the future?

2. Is there anything I can do for this turkey of a movie that they have in the Movie houses at the moment?

3. Can I think of anything to do with enormous surplus of 'Puss In Boots' merchandise that Dreamworks have.

Puss in Boots Toy

The sad fact (and I have a feeling that the Cat already knows it judging but his pose in the picture above) is that I can't help the movie or the people behind it or assist in shifting tons of 'Puss In Boots' figures, cuddly toys, action sets. Although I do believe that I could find a use for any 'Puss In Boots' toilet paper!

'Puss In Boots' the movie suffers from being spun from a rather frail character in a successful franchise, like so many TV series that none of us can quiet remember.

The movie itself suffers from the fact that Dreamworks really doesn't have any idea what young people find interesting, funny and most of all engaging; indeed I wonder if any grown-ups at Dreamworks asked even just one child if they liked actually liked 'Puss In Boots?' And not the one caught up in the obvious regard that they had for the Puss in footwear in Shrek.

The original 'Puss in Boots' story always bored the diapers off me when I was a kitten! And I am sure that goes for normal ordinary children as well.

The reason why 'Shrek' was so successful was that it was 'different' the reason why 'Puss In Boots' is a Dog of a movie and has had incredibly disappointing box office receipts is that it is just um, err, well, just that it's bland, grey, tired, unoriginal - need I say more?

So onto something that is wonderful, colourful, funny, marvellous and the work of a genius and I have to say closer to my heart and will make a small fortune. I am currently looking for funding for a movie based on my first masterpiece of feline literature 'Getting Out Excerpts from a Cat's Diary' and judging by the fact that people with money are idiots and to prove that have invested heavily in a mess of a movie like 'Puss In Boots' I am expecting the cash any day.

As far as I can tell I think I have only one problem, and that is that if the idiots with money are prepared to pour so much cash into a Donkey of a project like 'Puss In Boots' will they put vast sums of money into something that is brilliantly written, desperately funny, and a work of some considerable genius! It is probably doubtful because that would require taste and imagination!

Can you see that I am face by an awful dilemma! Should I dumb down the script, take out the jokes and worse base my story on a tired nursery rhythm or English Pantomime? And believe it or not there is yet another problem with that scenario!

Are there any tired children's stories left? Haven't Disney and Dreamworks animated all of them already and are now at their wits end running around saying "oh no, we have to do something original now!"

Of course that won't get them anywhere you only have to look at Pixar to see that, they provide movies with amazing technical brilliance, incredible animated tricks and so on and so forth but the storylines tend to be weak.

Just think of any of those dreadful driving movies staring someone called 'Vin,' the special effects are um… 'special' but that's as far as it goes. Once you have seen a string of special effects you tend to be immune to them but not to the drone of the movie.

So if you have a few mill or even a few thou don't let it go to waste, buy a share in what will be the animated movie moment of the century and help fund my wonderful movie as soon as possible so that we can get on with the production of that and the sequel at the same time.

If you need to have a quick read of my wonderful book before you decided to fund my movie then you can get it here Paperback edition of Getting Out at Amazon.com and of course the movie sequel here Paperback edition of The Cat's Travelogue and do get a move on, I want to start filming as early as possible, I am a Cat who writes blogs who is in a hurry to be the first Cat to win an Oscar.

Tommaso The Italian Black Cat Inherits $13 million

Tommaso, a 4 year old black Cat, who until recently, was a stray from the mean streets of Rome, is thought to have become the world's richest Cat.

Black Cat

Following the sad death of Tommaso's 94 year old human last month, Tommaso has become a property magnate — or as some would call him a 'mognate' — who now owns and manages a handsome property portfolio, and is doing a better job of it than than most bankers, worth an estimated €10m dotted across Italy from Milan in the north to Calabria in the south.

Below is a picture of the view from one of Tommaso's windows and him looking out over one or two of his properties before lunch.

Cat looking out of window

Unfortunately under Italian law, animals cannot inherit directly which seems rather disgusting for this Cat who writes blogs and who is expecting at least one inheritance any day now if there is anyone out there who isn't feeling too well and wants to name him, happily this Cat doesn't live in Italy so do make sure your wills are up to date and that the spelling of the main beneficiary is correct here it's just for you THE CAT.

Happily there was a little wrinkle in Italian law which has allowed Tommaso to get what was coming to him as long as he had a 'suitable trustee' and so Tommaso's human decided to entrust him and his fortune – to a lady and fellow Cat lover she met in a park and they became firm friends. "Sometimes I'd go to her house so my Cat could play with Tommaso," Stefania who is now Tommaso's trustee said.

When Tommaso's human became too frail to look after herself Stefania, who is a nurse by profession, began to take care of her on a full time basis.

And now Tommaso's lives with Stefania at an undisclosed address outside Rome, which is well away from the fortune hunters, con-artists and all of the others who think a Cat doesn't need that sort of sum in a lump?

If you want to make this Cat richer than Tommaso this Christmas and your plans don't include wills and dying then happily there is a very neat way to do just that and immediately simply click on either or both of the nice Amazonian links below and buy dozens of my books, they make great Christmas present, birthday presents and I have been told even if you don't like them they make great door stops though you tend to been a pile of at least ten or that is what prince charles said.

After Being Attacked By A Lion Christmas Comes To My Website

Ok I know that I have been "out of the loop," as they say for a short while. I am sure that you have noticed that your favourite Cat who writes blogs and more has been missing from the internet, not making a single Tweet on Twitter.com and unable to perform even the most basic computerised chore - but I have a great excuse.

To write my masterpieces of Feline Literature, compose wonderful award winning blogs and generally get in most people's way electronically, I use an Apple Computer, I have used one for years, but I don't want all of my wonderful cuddly readers to think that I am a computer bore on top of all of the other subjects which I can, and do, bore them with, so I won't go into just how long I have been a Apple user or at the heartbreak caused by being left out of Steve Jobs Biography completely! But that is another story for another blog I fear.

Right now I want to tell you of the awful problem that I have spent the weekend trying to resolve with my Computer Boffins here at Cat World HQ.

Trying not to sound too dramatic (of course and failing) all I can say is that I have been attacked by a Lion.

The Lion took the form of a so called 'operating system.' In fact I spent most of the weekend trying to fix all sorts of madness and confusion that installing Mac OSX Lion caused.

From watching my mouse pointer go backwards to my zippy computer being reduced to the pace of Dave the Cat on a stroll - I probably have to explain here that Dave the Cat hates walking, and even strolling for that matter, I personally think it has a lot to do with the bobble hat, it covers his eyes as you will know if you are a regular reader and if you aren't I'm not going to help you here, you'll just delve into my archives and find out the connection for yourself. It's enough to say that I think I have seen twigs walk faster than Dave the Cat if you ever a manage to trick him into a walk.

Lion OS X

There are loads of problems, as I discovered, with Mac OSX Lion and they are all to disappointing and frustrating to mention here frankly, but I will say this I used to love Apple…

Still I think I have managed to sort out most of the problems with the help of my light-fingered boffins - not they aren't that clever with their hands to be called 'light-fingered' the description comes from their habit of pocketing all of my nice little screwdrivers, pens and pencils, still what can you do? As I explain in the book I am writing at the moment which has the working title of 'The Cat's Memoir' (so that you know who wrote it) getting 'help' that is useful is practically impossible.

Still to cut a story that seems to be getting longer short when I finished downloading Mac OSX Lion it was very unstable now it is just simply terrible.

I can't think where I went wrong with Mac OSX Lion! Like an sensible computer user of long standing I am not an early adopter I let other fools rush in and watch their tears at leisure.

Unfortunately I needed to upgrade from the wonderfully cool Snow Leopard to Lion because I wanted to be part of the iPhone,iPod, iPad 'app' development process for an 'app' that the boffins and I have decided you my dear cuddly readers need and so I had to upgrade to Mac OSX Lion so that I could use the latest app development software.

Mistakenly, but confidently (at the time), I thought that as Lion was on its 10.7.2 incarnation it would be "a-okay" as they say when things are um 'ok' I suppose.

Grudingly I paid my real hard earned folding stuff to get a virtual product and like you, I am sure, felt cheated from the moment I watched with a tear rolling down my furry cheek the sum disappear from my bank account electronically, it's amazing just how that happens, if we tried getting cash in the same way at night I bet we'd fail.

Lion OSX 10.7.2 arrived and I have to say, at the time, I was excited I have rather enjoyed the 'Cat' series of Apple Operating Systems and still get excited at the tantalising prospect that the final and ultimate incarnation of this (till now) amazing product could be 'The Cat OSX' with a picture of you know who on the box, cover or downloading badge.

Apple New Logo

Isn't that picture wonderful? I think so and I am confident that with the final Cat representing the Mac OSX being me The Cat, Apple will go from a company doing quite well to one that is unbelievably successful, but sadly I think we are digressing here, my time like Apple's will come.

Lion arrived and what can I say? Maybe it should have arrived with a notice like this one from San Diego Zoo……….

Californian Lions Don t Like to be climbed on

Actually I have to say that Mac OSX Lion arrived reasonably quickly thanks to the Czech republic considering that fast broadband was something that would not only prove to be 'handy' for everyone but also would help business.

Unlike some backward countries like oh say for instance Cameronland, the island that is now totally isolated from Europe and soon to be free from Scotland and Ireland with any luck but not if the Chief can help it which of course means that it will happen very soon now.

Isn't it odd that the Chief of Cameronland wants to stick with the 'Micks' and the 'Jocks' and have nothing to do with the other "Johnny foreigners" in Europe as I believe he calls them.

Still I suppose you can't moan too much about idiots like the Chief of Cameronland who at least has been elected fairly. Unlike the Gremlin in The Kremlin who at long last has been seen for what he is by the Russian People - I am taking bets that 'Putin the Bootin' will be the next thing the hamfisted government will do in 'free' Russia, then there will be a 'Moscow Winter' followed by a 'Russian Spring' and he will be out of the game completely by the 'Russian Federation Fall.'

Oops did I say we were veering off the point - sorry we have done that again but there is so much going on and without a computer that was working properly thanks to Mac OSX Lion I haven't been able to see any news, talk to anyone and do all of the rest of the stuff that you expect to be able to do these days.

So here at long last is a nice picture of my Christmas Lights which I managed to put up on my www.wickedlywonderfulwebsite www.thecatsdiary.com at long last. So that it could complement the snow that I mentioned in this blog - blog.thecatsdiary.com/2011/11/27/snow-comes-to-my-website-blog.

Now if only I could get the snow to work on my home page once again I would be a happy Cat, but I probably won't be happy until ! am free from a certain Lion which seems to have its paw on my head all the time!

Is This The Saddest Dog In The World? Or One Of The Nicest?

Bentley the Border Collie is probably the saddest Dog in Britain, if not the world.

He has had a trying and very difficult life bless him and it has left him scared of Cats, afraid of the dark, suffering from monophobia, the fear of being alone, he has very sore paws because he suffers from such bad anxiety attacks that he bites his nails in fact he has to wear mittens on his feet to stop him making them worse but worst of all poor Bentley the Border Collie (aged six) desperately needs a new home and we all know that is going to be his biggest challenge because getting a new home is hard enough, but when you are in desperate need of masses of love, companionship and reassurance you might be considered a bit 'difficult.'

Bentley the Border Collie isn't difficult in any way though, the main cause of all of his ails is anxiety which started soon after his first human's death and it didn't help that his second human was unable to cope with his constant need for reassurance, cuddles and company.

Bently

Bentley the Border Collie tends to cower away from Cats, even when they are only on the TV, which suggests that he is not really as cowardly as most humans think and is actually showing a lot of intelligence! Cats are always up for a bit of 'Boxing' with a Dog no matter how big they are (the Dogs that is)and Dogs almost always come off worse, but that is only one on one or "Cato a Dogo" as they say in um... err... somewhere 'Latin!'

Dogs have a tendency for wandering around in packs and a pack of Dogs is a bit of a pawful for any Cat,all of which means it's a good job we can climb or so this Cat the Cat who writes blogs thinks, but I am veering away from the star of my blog today Bentley the Border Collie.

Unfortunately if the doorbell rings Bentley the Border Collie goes into orbit, yes you guessed it this distressed Doggie is frightened of not only the doorbell but what might also be outside in the dark.

Not all is doom and gloom for Bentley the Border Collie the lady who manages the Dog's Home where he is currently spending his days, at night he is taken home by one of the carers who at first felt sorry for him and now just enjoys his company, and that is because this blue bow wow's behaviour changes completely when he is surrounded by humans and happily he loses all his little ways, problems and insecurities.

Bently 2

All Bentley the Border Collie is a bit of love and company a home where at least one person is home for the
most of the day and night. Bentley loves human company both adults and children and when with them will happily play, fetch the usual stuff that fits in a mouth and then snuggle down and curl up on a conveniently situated lap after a long walk.

Bentley the Border Collie just needs is a second chance really he has had a difficult time so far in his short life and needs to forget the trauma of losing a loved one when he was young and enjoy the rest of his life being just a normal Dog let's hope that this Christmas Bentley the Border Collie finds a home along with all of the other animals who are in shelters.

Camouflage - A Hidden Art

I was talking to Hugh Grant the other day and we both agreed that being a celebrity can be hard, if it isn't the Murdoch run newspapers trying to tap your phone, open you mail and go through your empties it's the wonderful general public, bless them all, who can get a little carried away and storm your book signings just wanting to stroke you, and I have to say that happens to me a lot although I was surprised to hear that it happened to Huge (my pet name for Hugh).

Sometimes this Cat who writes blogs thinks that as a celebrity in constant demand by an adoring public you just have to get away, go into hiding or use camouflage, Hugh was of the same opinion but tends to think that you can hide from the public in a car parked round the back of a busy well lit street, still it takes all sorts to make the world dizzy doesn't it?

Between you and me I have been using camouflage for a while now to avoid the glare of the public and the peeping Toms of the press and believe that camouflage is a very wonderful thing.

Just today I was leafing through a copy of my newspaper and spotted a whole section of pictures dedicated to animals and insects who are really rather good at camouflaging themselves.

I have to say that article was an altogether more interesting than another which reported that Madonna, (with an emphasis on the 'Mad' she is obviously going through some sort of mid-life experience), said that the duchess of Cambridge (if you don't know who she is here's a tip, she's the anorexic looking newest royal, who depending upon the newspaper you read is expecting one or several babies, if that is true where is the bulge then - in a surrogate?) is “lovely girl with great sense of style.” Sorry Madonna I think it's time to hang up your sling backs darling cos baby doll you have lost it!

Instead of offering you a picture of the tired but blousy Madonna or the Mousey but skinny duchess of Cambridge I thought I would let my wonderful readers have a gawp at some amazing camouflage pictures I was so impressed with. Not all of them are animals or insects as you will see and for one sadly no amount of camouflage will help her appearance.

So without further ado or character assassination I give you my little tribute to camouflage and the beasts that use it.

To start with how about the Leaf-tailed Gecko, aka the Satanic Leaf-tailed Gecko who blends in wonderfully with a rustle of old brown dried leaves this one lives in the Andasibe-Mantadia National Park in Madagascar?

Leaf Tailed Gecko

Or what about a Bat-faced Toad who has taken a tip form the Satanic Leaf-tailed Gecko above and is hiding amongst a crust of dead leaves in the Amacayacu National Park in Colombia?

Leaf Toad

Then there is the oddly named White Crab Spider sitting on a flower near you, if you happen to live in the south of England or Wales.

White Crab Spider

Humans can create excellent camouflage if they have the patience and artistic ability, but sadly unlike the animals above when they move the illusion is shattered. Let's hope that this lady stays still because I think she has forgotten to get dressed this morning!

Nude

Lastly, and that is where every one of all of the dozens of English queens, dukes, duchesses, princesses and princes of benefit dependency - the English royal family - would come if they weren't so privileged, we have the amazing camouflage of the duchess of somewhere that was invented especially to accommodate her.

As you can see she blends in rather well with the soldiers, some might say that she looks the most 'rugged' of them all!

Do you like me wonder what she is pointing at around that soldier's crutch? She seems to be very interested in 'something' down 'there' don't you think?

If you want to see more of these overrated royal individuals they can be found posing in army, navy and air force uniforms on state occasions (which makes you wonder if the English state isn't a military one?).

Oddly enough the royals are almost always dressed up in very high ranking positions in their chosen armed force I wonder just how they earned this exulted ranks? Beats me!

If you want to get a good look at the English royal family the best place to spot them is on holiday somewhere very warm while the British newspapers sing their praises and extoll their virtues at home telling the English people just how hard the royals are working!

Titanic Stuff

Although I love luxury ocean going liners, mainly because they have a degree of comfort that strikes the right cord with me unlike say a Virgin 747 which is a tawdry affair in every respect, there is something I don't like about the Titanic and it isn't accessibility!

In fact I'm sure that the Titanic which sunk 100 years ago next April 15th was one of the most comfortable liners ever built, what I don't like is the recent craze of either visiting the wreck or making a yard sale of the bric-a-brac that has been scooped up from wreck site!

Somehow all of that cheapens the suffering and sacrifice of those who either went down with the Titanic deliberately or didn't have a lot of choice in the matter and yet now you can, if you feel so inclined, buy their coat buttons or the the china they had their last cup of tea ever in sounds disgusting doesn't it and I bet that it's all about to get even worse when the centenary year of the sinking arrives in just a few weeks time.

I bet that right now there are millions of hamfisted Chinese workers putting the glaring finishing touches to all sorts of really badly made merchandise, which as they pack it falls apart, that will flood the market for the 100th anniversary of such a tragic event. There will be documentaries, news reports, travelling exhibitions and goodness forbid another version of the movie probably in 3D!

I tell you what there might not be Siamese twins and Bearded ladies in travelling circuses these days but you 'modern' and 'enlightened' humans still have your own version of that sort of thing don't you! It's enough to make a Cat who writes blogs cringe!

There is one item that I recently came across that celebrates the Titanic but happily it wasn't recovered by grave robbers, it was made this year and best of all it is a lot of fun, it is called the Titanic Lamp and I think I want at least one, it will look great on my motor yacht (which I mentioned a few blogs ago) so if anyone wants to send me a Titanic Lamp do let me know and I will give you a delivery address, oh by the way if anyone wants to send me a motor yacht and they have a very big one to spare, with a Captain and some mates, then do let me know about that too. I know that a lot of my dear cuddly readers want only the best for me so I can't wait to see my new motor yacht!

If you don't have a motor yacht to spare then the next best thing would be to buy dozens if not hundreds of my books here The Cat's Travelogue Paperback Edition, Paperback edition of Getting Out at Amazon.com if you would like ebook editions do use the links at these pages it saves me boring you with loads of links here, yes I am nice aren't I!

Unfortunately I don't know exactly how many books or ebooks you have to buy to ensure that I get a nice big motor yacht so just to be on the safe side it might be best to buy a couple of thousand copies each of my books and I'll let you know how we get on!

A Very Confusing Sign

I think that most people and Cats would agree that men's rooms are not really very nice places, and definitely not places where one would want to linger, unless you are a policeman attempting to catch poor old Mr. George Michael in another weak moment I suppose. However just because men's rooms are not very nice places that doesn't mean that visitors should be expected to lower their standards when they enter them does it?

So would someone please tell the Taiwanese that! And if possible do so immediately!

A Very Confusing Sign

Mind you, if most Taiwanese are anything like the ones who used to constantly call my mobile trying to sell me something that rhymes with 'rap' then they probably wouldn't listen. Their nuisance calls got so bad that in the end the only way I could get rid of them was to pretend that I was my brother and answer the phone with a sob then tell then ten times that I was 'dead!'

They obviously are a bit hard of understanding in Taiwan because it took me that number of times to sob and blurt out the awful 'truth' tee hee.

Do use this tactic on unwanted callers if you are fed up with feeling like a sitting duck with a phone waiting for the next completely unsolicited and unwanted call because there is no other way to stop these dreadful people who intrude upon our lives.

The phone regulator that you and I pay for as a hidden 'extra' on our phone bill is desperately useless and usually the people making these nuisance calls have hidden or nonexistent numbers.

You can of course 'improve' their English by swearing at them but I have personally found on every occasion I have adopted that tactic that, because of their trade and the number of people who have sworn at them, you really have to stretch your vocabulary to find something new that they haven't been called before and even that won't shock them into not calling you in the future!



The Cat would like to wish Mr. George Michael a speedy recovery and tell him when he reads this that, "I like his tunes!"

George Michael

They've Nearly Found The God Particle!

Scientists at the Cern Laboratory in Switzerland and my front room say that they are very close to finding the God particle. Using the Large Hadron Collider and a Fingertip Search down the back of my sofa they have, they say, got very close to the elusive god particle and that means that they are the verge to announcing their evidence.

Cern


Just in case you aren't sure the picture above is of the Cern Laboratory and the one below is of my front room, the sofa that scientists have been studying is the leather one on the right!

My front room

Cutting through all of the scientific waffle I am happy to let all of my cuddle readers into what until now has been a great big secret, without (hopefully) ruining the scientist's 'big day.' The god particle that the boys and girls at Cern and my from room have discovered is a tiny bit of dandruff that I shed years ago and it's said that in the hands of a well trained scientist this tiny piece of scientific gold can be used to clone more good looking geniuses like me.

Below is a photograph of my god particle dandruff taken while it was being scanned with a reflection electron microscope, the magnification is about 10,000,000x and that means that what appears to be an alien city, on an alien world with tiny beings inhabiting it, is no threat to mankind whatsoever because the tiny aliens and their world are really so very small. So there would be no point in training any nuclear missiles at my flake of dandruff I promise or indeed any other potential threats from my skin, if I had dandruff these days which I have to stress I don't thanks to years of hard research by another scientists Dame Eumelanin Wella!

City

So taking a deep breath I would just like to take a moment with you all my dear cuddly readers for some quiet and maybe a little refection to consider this momentous discovery by the boys and girls at Cern and my front room, err... yes you can hold hands if you want to, but please don't call me the prophet!

What has been achieved at Cern is... well you know, err... um... big! The whole endeavour is enormous, dangerous some say, but then it would be with so many people from different countries working there wouldn't it. Whatever Cern is you must all agree it's spectacular and happily as I have said before it's built under a part of the world that if it had caused the vortex to open and Zardoz and his screaming minions to leap out not many people would have noticed.

Happily the outcome is one that we can all celebrate and although some are referring to my tiny flake of dandruff as the 'god particle' and by association me as 'godlike,' I just prefer to think that what has been achieved by the scientists at Cern and in my front room is so far beyond the comprehension of most of us that everyone from believers in the old chap with a snowy white beard, to the one who is an odd colour and has several more arms than one would think anyone could possibly need, to (and even at the risk of a fatwā or two), Allah.

What could be better than that, the scientists are happy, the religious followers will be happy sadly fanatics from the Tea Party to the Taliban won't be happy with this momentous news, but then until they change their way of looking at the world they will never be happy with anything which is a shame.

It almost goes without saying that I'm happy for everyone involved. Mmh is that a little godlike possibly!

Stray Animal Holocaust - Shame On You Ukraine

In spite of protests across the world and in the Ukraine to date, over 20,000 stray Dogs and Cats have been slaughtered Kiev in a misguided and cruel bid to tidy up the streets for a Football Competition the Euro 2012.

After a public outcry earlier this month the Kiev government said it was to stop shooting or poisoning strays animals the authorities claim that stray animals were to be rounded up and taken to animal shelters instead.

Protest

However Judith Pein, of the German branch of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), claimed the slaughter was still happening and that "these killings are directly related to Ukraine hosting Euro 2012." She also commented that, "stray killing is a profitable business."

Just looking at the conflicting statements from the government of Ukraine you can see just what a bunch of heartless liars they are!


Ukraine Government Press Releases

November 4th 2011 Kiev

Ukraine to build shelters for stray dogs...

Ukraine will build shelters for stray dogs in big cities ahead of the Euro 2012 football championship, the government has announced.

Alsatian Puppy

November 18th 2011 Kiev

Environment Minister Mykola Zlochevsky calls for end to stray animals' killing...

Mykola Zlochevsky Environment Minister has called for an end to stray animals' killing ahead of the Euro 2012 Soccer Championship

To Date the Killing Goes On

From the Docs4Dogs European Network website Docs4Dogs.org

"Tidy streets" for the European Football Championship 2012 in the Ukraine: Stray Dogs and Cats are burnt alive.

Ukraine in the year 2011: In the last few months there have been mobile crematoria driving around in the streets of Kiev and other districts. The driver and his crews’ duty is to kill stray Dogs and Cats. Occasionally, the animals are burnt alive in these mobile crematoria, where they perish with inexpressible pain.

The background of this cruel "cleanup policy" is the European Football Championship 2012 in the Ukraine: The masses of expected foreign visitors shall not be confronted with stray animals. That is the reason why defenseless animals are beaten to death, poisoned, or burnt alive in these mobile crematoria.

The Union of European Football Associations [UEFA] also strongly criticises the public authorities in the Ukraine for these actions, and has offered them a financial support for castrations of stray cats and dogs to enable animal rights activists to solve the problem of stray animals in a responsible and humane way. Until now, the public authorities of the Ukraine have only shown negative reactions towards the protests of animal rights activists: They are putting animal rights activists under pressure by asking them to stop the international protests.

Docs4Dogs

Do sign the petition but please don't feel obligated to donate to Docs4Dogs (I have 'cleaned' their donate button off the picture above). I have to stress that the Cat who writes blogs is not endorsing the work of Docs4Dogs.org in anyway whatsoever just the fact that they, like me, care about the welfare of animals (especially Cats in my case) the only difference is that I don't ask for donations, I might of course occasional suggest you buy a book, and even use a bit of emotional blackmail, but a Cat has got to live and keep a roof over his head these days because it's a bad time to be a stray.

Personally I don't like the in your face attitude of most multinational charities who seem these days to believe that they have some sort of divine right to the hard earned cash in your pocket! Oh yes a lot of them say that they stand for change and then you discover that they have financial agreements and contracts with all sorts of unsavoury entities including but not exclusive of governments.

Finally if you are a football supporter I hope you will ask yourself if you really should be watching the European Football Championship 2012 in the Ukraine when you consider the suffering of in excess of 20,000 animals.

Some of the matches are being played in Poland and there are no Animal Holocausts being carried out in Warsaw or other Polish cities, so if want to watch a European Football Championship 2012 match do please go to one in Poland you may well find that the people there are much nicer than Ukrainains!

Everyone Loves A Fart Joke

As the title says, everyone loves a fart joke although in my books and blogs I try to keep farting to a minimum, but it creeps in occasionally - as the actress said to the Bishop! Boom Boom!

Even though I do try to stop a fart appearing now and again in my books and blogs, the Cat who writes blogs couldn't resist this photograph which I think should be entitled Where To Shop For A Small Explosion that being the first bit of the first line of the definition of a 'fart' in the 26 or so volume Oxford English Dictionary which adds that "the small explosion takes place between the legs" bless them - the dictionary people not the farters you understand!

Shoes, Feet And Other 'Insults'

I was going through some old pictures and when I came across this one (below) it reminded me of my aimless wanderings that resulted in the writing of my wonderful masterpiece 'The Cat's Travelogue' (if you are one of the few people on the planet not to have a copy you can get it discreetly here www.amazon.com and no one will ever know that you didn't have one of the latest trendiest 'must have consumer products' because you can pretend that you had it all the time).

In The UAE They Dream Of The Sea

The picture comes from the ultra modern high rising cement constructed emirate of UAE and brought back all sorts of dreadful memories of a place where the contradictions of life are many, various and confusing to say nothing of their translations into English!

Imagine spending $20 billion on an hotel - imagine the Burj Khalifa - and then try to imagine why you wouldn't spend $20 on correctly translating a sign from Gulf Arabic to English, if you can do that then you can imagine just what life is like in Dubai or the UAE!

The UAE is a place where 'foreigners' are loathed, but welcomed so that they can fill the seven star hotels and try their hardest to buy at least a tenth of all of the dreadful modern and over priced real estate that has been thrown up for them on newly created 'islands' in the middle of enormous lagoons which are now sadly sinking back into the depths of the lagoons from where they were dredged up.

UAE

The UAE is a place that likes to pretend that it is modern, go ahead and forward thinking but can't do more than pretend, take a recent innocent example of a multinational shoe manufacturer (Puma) who thought that the very rich inhabitants of the UAE and the tourists, who troll around the place gaping at the enormous buildings, pleasure parks and the greater number of building sites where construction has ground to a halt, would like a pair of trainers with the UAE flag plastered all over them.

These 'special edition shoes' (whatever that can possibly mean) were intended to mark the 40th UAE National Day. All that Puma had to do was to make them and put a stupidly high price on them ($190 because they are special I suppose), stick them in their own stores and 'bam' they would be a few million dollars richer even if half of the products sold would have to be returned because they were so badly made in China.

UAE PUMAS

Well it was a brilliant marketing plan what could go wrong?

What went wrong was simple the very conservative inhabitants of the UAE didn't like the the fact that the nations flag colours were being used on shoes!

At this moment it might be a good idea to cast your mind back to the Iraq war, just at the end when America was being thanked and celebrated before the Iraqis changed their minds, when the enormous statue of old walrus face was toppled and locals started hitting it with their shoes.

Saddam Statue Shoe Attack

Then a short while later after the Iraqis had forgotten all about the repression of the old ways under the tough guy with the big soup strainer and more importantly who had rescued them from torture and terrible moustaches some idiot threw a shoe at Pres. Georgie B, can you see a pattern emerging here?

Pres Bush Shoe

For some reason in the Arab world, best known only to Arabs, feet and footwear are considered dirty, the Cat who writes blogs thinks that it is such a shame that there isn't more widespread use shoe polish and foot baths in the Arab world as that surely would sort of solve little problems like this and then the UAE could make a better pretence of being what it pretends to be - a modern country that is a great place for tourists and second home owners. Because as incidents like this demonstrate currently the mind set of the people is still firmly entrenched in prehistoric Wadi mud, remember the Cat who writes blogs is just a Cat and Cats aren't as clever as humans! Are they? But I have to say this I am glad that Cats have Paws and not feet and never wear shoes, unless they are dressed up by idiot humans - but that is the subject of another blog and nothing to do with this one!

Just imagine for a moment if we were so precious about the British Union Jack or the American Stars and Stripes, we would have tacky mugs, tea towels and souvenir shop rubbish in general, Jimi Hendrix's masterpiece of guitar playing the 'Star Spangled Banner' would be lost forever and we would never have had anything to roll our 'herbal' cigarettes in at college would we?
