The internet is filled with hundreds of cute kitten and cat videos. If you visit Youtube and type in search terms like ‘cute cat videos’ or ‘kitten videos’ you will come across many videos I am sure you will enjoy watching. I myself have watched several of these. I love the ones where cats are getting along with different species of animals like dogs and other domesticated and wild animals – like the one where the cat is with a fox and an eagle. But recently I came across a fantastic video of two kittens watching tennis which is the cutest kitten video I have watched. You can check it out below:-
Do you like crumble? What about the combination of plums and ginger?
My friend makes a fantastic pear, apple and ginger crumble which we usually have after his wonderful shepherd’s pie. One day after a visit to the market I brought home a lot of plums. I used most of them to make a delicious plum crumble – so I repeated the recipe and included ginger in it and it turned out to be really good. Here’s the recipe…
Do you like smoothies?
Smoothies are easy to prepare and very refreshing especially on a hot day. They are also healthy, when you avoid using ingredients like ice cream, cream, sugar, and use ingredients like ice, low fat yoghurt, and skimmed milk.
It first started with Twilight, The Vampire Diaries and The Southern Vampire Mysteries being books, but then they were made into movies and TV shows – Twilight into a film series, The Vampire Diaries and The Southern Vampire Mysteries into TV Series with the latter being named as True Blood.
The growing popularity of these books, shows and movies has influenced their social media channels too and along with some well planned strategies they are successfully engaging their audience. But according to this recent infographic by Direct SAT TV, True Blood will take over online conversations this summer.
A few days ago I came across this fantastic video of a marriage proposal on Youtube. In this video Isaac Lamb, an actor proposes to his girlfriend, Amy, a choreographer, with help from than 50 friends and family.

One of the keys to a great story is the characters in it. The more unforgettable your characters are the longer they will stick in your readers mind and the more they will be talked about. You need to have several unforgettable characters in a story. It’s not just enough if you have one or two, almost all the important characters in your story need to have deep personalities. Your readers should be able to get to know them and understand them and feel the same emotions and feelings they feel while they read your story.
Before you write your story you need to plan out your characters, their personalities and traits thoroughly. The more you think about them and plan them, the more likely your readers will like them and remember them for a long time.
If you’re keen on learning how to create good characters then read all the tips below and practice them:-
If you’re a football fan, especially of the Barclays Premier League, you would have spent Sunday watching the last day of the season when all the games kicked off at the same time (3:00 PM UK Time). There was a lot at stake on this day – there was the close competition between Manchester United and Manchester City for the Barclays Premier League Title as they were both level on points. Tottenham tried to go past Arsenal and gain automatic champions league qualifying by finishing third and Newcastle tried to go past Tottenham and qualify for the champions’ league qualifying round.
There was the relegation battle between Bolton and QPR and the competition between Everton and Liverpool to be the top club in Merseyside. But as expected the main focus was on the tussle for the title between Manchester United and Manchester City. Both teams were level on points but Manchester City had a better goal difference hence they were on top.
A few days ago I read an article on Mashable, “What to do When a Potential Employer Asks For Your Facebook Password” by Tony Morrison – this article was in response to the article “Job Seekers Beware: Employers May Ask to See Your Facebook Account” by Alissa Skelton. Here Alissa points out how employers are requesting potential employees to give them their facebook usernames and passwords at job interviews.
Do you think this is right?
I think this is very wrong and a complete misuse of power. What will the employer gain by looking at the persons profile – will they find out more about their personal life, what they do in their free time, what sort of pictures they have on their profiles, etc. How will their company gain from this information?
