A friend told me the following story, which relates to travelling----

A guy is sitting in the bar in departures at a busy airport.

A beautiful woman walks in and sits down at the table next to him.
He decides that because she’s got a uniform on, she’s probably an off-duty flight attendant, so he decides to have a go at picking her up by identifying the airline she flies for, thereby impressing her greatly..

He leans across to her and says the Delta Airlines motto “We love to fly and it shows”.

The woman looks at him blankly.
He sits back and thinks up another line.
He leans forward again and delivers the Air France motto “Winning the hearts of the world”.

Again she just stares at him with a slightly puzzled look on her face.
Undeterred, he tries again, this time saying the Malaysian Airlines motto “Going beyond expectations”.

The woman looks at him sternly and says “What the bloody hell do you want?”

“Ahhh”, he says, sitting back with a smile on his face, “Ryanair”.

Enjoy your travels.

I was one my way to the store this afternoon. In the alley behind my building an old guy was rummaging through the dumpster for bottles, his shopping cart next to him. He looked up and saw me and said "hey, how's it going? ". I replied that I was fine and asked how he was. He said he was well and asked If I wanted a beer? "No thanks"

Here's a guy with very little and he is offering up beer. This made me smile.

I start back into work on Monday after 8 weeks of doing nothing - only temp and not really on the salary bracket l was used to but a hell of a lot less stress and responsiblity, a set of wheels for a while and l know the work inside out cos l used to work there before!!!

On the downside when will this snow ever go away its soooooo cold too, airports all over the UK are closed and if it continues Paul wont get home on Sunday and that will then open up a whole other set of problems
