Hello everyone! Sorry I haven’t been around much but I have been so busy!
I guess flapirate was right! I am not a blog addict I am more of a recreational user! 🙂
Anyhoo Amy Beth sent me an e-mail the other day and boy was I delighted. This is a self-portrait and she did such a wonderful job. It is not finished yet, but somehow it just looks right.
Let me know what you think 🙂
List of Unusual Deaths
Halloween brings out the weirdness in a lot of us including me, so here are some things that I found very interesting.
458 BC: The Greek playwright Aeschylus was killed when an eagle dropped a live tortoise on him, mistaking his bald head for a stone.
1327: Edward II of England, after being deposed and imprisoned by his Queen consort Isabella and her lover Roger Mortimer, was rumored to have been murdered by having a red-hot iron inserted into his anus.
1478: George Plantagenet, Duke of Clarence reportedly was executed by drowning in a barrel of Malmsey wine at his own request.
1899: French president Félix Faure died of a stroke while receiving oral sex in his office.
1671: François Vatel, chef to Louis XIV, committed suicide because his seafood order was late and he couldn’t stand the shame of a postponed meal. His body was discovered by an aide, sent to tell him of the arrival of the fish. The authenticity of this story is questionable.
1911: Jack Daniel, founder of the Tennessee whiskey distillery, died of blood poisoning six years after receiving a toe injury when he kicked his safe in anger at being unable to remember its combination.
1993: Garry Hoy, a Toronto lawyer, fell to his death after he threw himself through the glass wall on the 24th floor of the Toronto-Dominion Centre in order to prove the glass was “unbreakable.”
2007: An Australian woman was killed after her pet camel attempted to engage in sexual intercourse with her.
Very strange deaths indeed! What unusual deaths have you heard of?
The Odd and Quirky News
Dominant German wife is jailed
A GERMAN woman who branded the words “never lie again” on her husband’s back has been jailed for three years.
Heike Hoffmann, 28, also ordered husband Andreas, 41, to take a ten-minute ice-cold shower if he looked at another woman.
And who is going to enforce this cold shower if his wife is in jail? hmmm!
Until the next time bye 🙂
