TODAY

Met up with an old friend of mine today, well he retired from where I work some time ago and I think he's basically bored.
Every day when he came in to work he used to say "Did you know that on this day...." and then impart some amazing useless fact about the world or what happened in it on that day. Nothing's changed as I waited with baited breath for his useless info.
"Did you know that 49 years ago today," he said, ("Yes What?!) "I left school!" Really wanted to know that! So instead we are forced to go to good old wikipedia! JULY 28

What basically I'd like you to do today if you've got the time is to have a little look around my site.
Click some things on the side bar.
What do I really look like?
What Is the World Community Grid?
Who are Team Bravo?
Go and visit some of my friends.
Are you on the blogroll, does the link work?
Do you want to be on my blogroll?
E mail me over whatever.
Then there's my profile. What do you think of it?
What about The Gutter Press what is that all about?
OO there's Anon HNT what's that?
Wow look a newer site. Photoblog yeah!

So it's a click away day. Enjoy. Come back and comment and then come back often you will always be welcome.

If you are around later we'll sit down and have a chat in my comments box, I'll bring some wine and have some food around, maybe play some games - but of course I will be there to answer any questions you might have and we'll have a laugh together and good fun will be had.

Hope you've had a good look around - you now know everything about me that there is to know....NOT! But at least it's a start.
I'll be by this evening for a chat and wine and stuff!!

cathy said...

I know what you look like.
you know the link works you test it yourself.
HNT - well I never.
email, yep we got past that stage too.

did you mention wine?
well now we're talkin!

Pink said...

EBEZP said...

Cathy you spotted it as a weak post but a genuine invitation! All friends together here a little later - red or white.......sod it lots of both!!

EBEZP said...

Pink that word travels through the ether pretty quickly doesn't it? Yeah a little later..ok?

Autumn Storm said...

Red for me please. :-)
Reading that, I'm doing pretty well on all those counts, all that's left is to check out if my own link works. :-) Yep, some nice sites you have here Simon, Ilike the variety that exists between the three.
Now do you need any help with the food?

Palm Springs Savant said...

I am really enjoying exploring your blog in detail, I usually read through the daily posts, but today I am following your wishes!

Speaking of wine...I drank an entire bottle of red wine last week in Vegas over dinner. I rolled out of the place.

EBEZP said...

Yeah AS that would be great, thanks bout 45 mins ok with you!

Hi Rick I hope we will have enough red wine for you if you can join us. Easily done in Vegas that mate!
See you later.

EBEZP said...

Be about ten mins everybody!!

Party tune.......Cue the Music.....

It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Nobody knows where my Johnny has gone
But Judy left the same time
Why was he holding her hand
When he's supposed to be mine

It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Then all my records keep dancing all night
But leave me alone for a while
'Til Johnny's dancing with me
I've got no reason to smile

It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Judy and Johnny just walked thru the door
Like a queen with her king
Oh what a birthday surprise
Judy's wearing his ring

It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Oh-oh-oh It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to.....



THERE IS TO BE NO CRYING AT THIS PARTY!

SEE YOU ALL IN A BIT....

EBEZP said...

Hi everybody - It’s party time! Come on in and help yourself to some cheese and the wine is over there.

cathy said...

sorry I'm late here I brought some nibbles and a few beers for the plebs, mine's a spritzer if you please

cathy said...

by the way 19 years ago today I threw a party to celebrate getting a job on cruise ships, a month later I flew to Miami to join the staff of the largest floating casino in the world.

EBEZP said...

Hi cathy so glad you could make it! What did you do on the cruise ships? I'll just get your drink and we'll chat in a bit!

cathy said...

I was a croupier, that is what I did in England too.

And stop griping I wasn't saying it was a weak post. I was saying we are already well aquainted, scousers! chuh!!

EBEZP said...

Sorry Cathy, here’s your drink Do you remember what was number one when you held that party?

cathy said...

Glenn Medeiros - "Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You"
July 3 for 4 weeks

isn't google great

EBEZP said...

I love google!!
Wow a croupier hey? Is it as glam as it sounds?
Oh cathy I wasn't griping! Something sad to do on a Saturday night. Well acquainted I like - are you a scouser as well then?


That record was quite sexy wasn't it, you know that Glen madeira Cake one. I didn't like it then but it reads slightly better now. Don't think I really want to hear it though!


NOTHING'S GONNA CHANGE MY LOVE FOR YOU (Glenn Medeiros)

If I had to live my life without you near me
The days would all be empty
The nights would seem so long
With you I see forever oh so clearly
I might have been in love before
But it never felt this strong

Our dreams are young
And we both know they'll take us
Where we want to go

(Chorus 1)
Hold me now
Touch me now
I don't want to live without you

(Chorus 2)
Nothing's gonna change my love for you
You ought know by now how much I love you
One thing you can be sure of
I'll never ask for more than your love

(Chorus 3)
Nothing's gonna change my love for you
You ought know by now how much I love you
The world may change my whole life through
But nothing's gonna change my love for you

If the road ahead is not so easy,
Our love will lead the way for us
Like a guiding star
I'll be there for you if you should need me
You don't have to change a thing
I love you just the way you are
So come with me and share the view
I'll help you see forever too

(Repeat Chorus 1)

(Repeat Chorus 2)

(Repeat Chorus 3)

(Repeat Chorus 2) (2X)

(Repeat Chorus 3)

(Repeat Chorus 2)


Love that at the end as if you're really bothered which poxy chorus is being repeated!!!

Pauline said...

EBEZP said...

Thanks Pauline maybe we should call this the comments box warming party after all we are all northerners here coz I don't know where Autumn Storm has gone.

Autumn Storm said...

EBEZP said...

I hate these time differences guys but because it's 1 am here I'm rolling out. Thanks for coming over.

Pauline said...

Just popped over to thank you for the hospitality. I wish I could have stayed longer it was a great party!

Judging by parties I've had in the past, it usually takes all of the next day to clear up. Is there anything I can do?

EBEZP said...

Oh Pauline no thank you for coming! I think Autumn Storm has got it covered but thanks anyway, hope you got your sis home ok!

When I go down and check if there's any wine left over I'll drop it in to yours later this evening ok.
