does anyone know of a landline company that you do not get the dreaded 'congratulations' phonecalls where a recorded message tells you that you have won a cruise to the Bahamas?

I was thinking this morning, when opening my packed of Tesco's value porridge oats, that how does an oat know it's a value oat as oppose to a full priced oat? ;-)

Had a really fantastic sunday. I had been dreading doing a car boot sale for ages, knowing it would be an early Sunday am, might start raining and that I'm selling such rubbish how could anyone possibly want it.
Anyway, I've discovered a few ( unlikely tips for a successful car boot saleCollapse )

Does anyone have a cat? or has had a cat in the past? (I'm not counting people who've had one that essentially was someone else's responsibility like their parents. I'm also only talking about 'actual' cats).

List five songs that you are currently digging ... it
doesn't matter what genre they are from, whether they have words or even if
they're not any good but they must be songs you're really enjoying right now.
Post these instructions, the artist and the song in your blog along with your
five songs. Then tag five other people to see what they're listening
OK I'm gonna have trouble with artists here as they're songs I hear on the radio and I don't always know the artist esp if I hear it on Star or Real radio...
1. Crazy chick - Charlotte Church. What a cool song, I like her, too. Good down to earth personable pop star.
2. Whatta man - Salt and Pepa. Some positive happy lyrics in R&B for a change. Bravo!
3. DJ Sammy - dance version of Annie Lennox's 'Why'. Bloody good, but only skimmed the charts :-(
4. Jem - Just a ride. The song which kicked off my solo tour of Gower and Pembrokeshire last weekend. V appropriate! And then I heard it two more times over the course of the weekend and my liking of this song did not diminish.
5. 'oh my god I can't believe it...' - Kaiser Chiefs I think. I love the 'powered up pac man' line. I thought this was a cover of a Who song to begin with or something but they only invented Pac Man in the 1980s
oh well, back to work...

What lowers your stress/blood pressure/anxiety level? Make a list, post it to your journal... and then tag 5 friends and ask them to post it to theirs.
*writing music, although this can also make me excited!
*Having a massage
*Doing the gardening
*Going for a drive, or pointlessly extending a pre-existing drive home by driving 'round the block'. This is best when already quite calm and wanting to prolong the feeling.
*Reading the newspapers
*Having a drink with good company (or sometimes on my own)
*Going for a swim
*If I'm really stressed I can stop the stressed thoughts circling round my head by writing them down in a rant pad. This is especially good at work, when I am 'stuck there' and until I get things off my mind, even if temporarily, the work will often not progress or slowly progress.
*Keeping away from people until I feel less stressed, because it only ever makes things worse.
Wow. I'm quite impressed with myself. The self help books have been a success! Best of all think of ways to stop getting stressed in the first place though? That's where my recent NLP book comes in handy...
