Cash for Gold

Cash for Gold

There has been a rise in Cash for Gold advertising, especially on television networks.  The whole cash for gold concept started in the United States to try and help aliviate the pressures during the credit crunch. You basically go to their website and register, they send you a bag. You fill the bag and send it off. They then send you a cheque.  The gold is then melted down in a refinery into gold bullion.

But your probably wondering is it worth doing.  Well its been reported that people are recieving between 40-50% its worth.  So although you may not get its full value or in some cases significantly less than you paid for it, it may be the needed cash injection needed during the current economic climate.  If you dont really need the cash but are looking for a little extra cash then maybe exploring other avenues first may be the answer.

One concern that many have is the suddern gold rush is going to cause a rise in burgleries.

The Motability Scheme

Motability was set up by the government in 1977 and has supplied more than 1.7 million cars and powered wheelchairs to disabled customers.
Motability was established to provide disabled people with safe, reliable and affordable cars. You can use this scheme to hire or buy a car or powered wheelchair or scooter if you have been awarded Disability Living Allowance (DLA) high rate mobility component (or War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement).

Fantastic Scheme, however, the other day I see a nice new Honda Type-R pull up and park in a disabled spot.  Now your probably thinking the same as me, its just someone ignorant c**t thinking they can park where they like, but no they had a disability badge.  I watched them get out and could really see what was wrong with them, but im not to judge their personal health.  But it seems to becoming a regurlar occurance of so called disabled people driving flash sports cars or cars that would be considered inappropriate for their circumstances, not to mention the cost of some of these cars. But you cant put a price on your health, well looks as though someone has and quite a high price theyve put on it.
I think that the mobility scheme is a good idea, although I think that it should be monitored a little more closely.  Instead of given the people the money to go buy or hire the car they should have a selection of practical cars which they can choose from.  Maybe even setting up a deal with a car company to produce a car range for disabled people and include a complete package including servicing etc, this way it will stop so called disabled people buying flash sports cars with their allowance, because if they are able to drive a car like that then they dont need a mobility allowance.

Female Masterbation

Ok so you ask a guy 'do you masturbate?' or even wank, and they would probably tell you they do, as well as openly admit it. It’s not a surprise to know that most men choke the chicken regularly and it’s not surprising that they will openly admit it. However, why is it different for women? Now I am pretty confident that a high percentage of women like to flick their bean regularly. For some women this is the only way they can orgasm. So why do they find it difficult to admit? It’s not like men would mind, if anything it would come as a turn on.
The thing is it’s a medical fact that regular orgasms are good for you. They help to reduce stress by releasing happy chemicals within the brain.
There are a large amount of women out there who have never had an orgasm from just penetrative intercourse. They are also too scared to admit to their partners as they feel like failures, or worried that it would cause upset. But you shouldn’t. You should encourage your partner to give you penetrative intercourse whilst you rub your clit. If your partner feels a failure because they can’t make you cum from just sex, then tell them that they are not alone and actually only a small percentage of women can cum from just sex.

A healthy sex life is not just a regular sex life, but both people being happy, truthful and above all left satisfied.

Sex Toys

There are a huge range of sex toys available on the market today for both men and women. The shapes, sizes and uses is absolutely phenomenal. They are of course a fantastic way to enhance your sex life whoever you are and whether on your own, a couple or more.

Probably the most successful and well known sex toy is the rampant rabbit. In today's society, if you are a women, young or old, it is acceptable to own a rampant rabbit. But there it ends and the taboo starts - you can own one this is fine, but you cant use it oh no that would be totally wrong. Its amazing how much of a prudent society we still are.

If you would like to purchase one then the best place is

Lockerbie bomber returns to Libya

Today Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi was released from Greenock Prison where he was serving a 27 year sentence for the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 which killed 270 people Wednesday 21 December 1988. Large sections of the plane fell in and around the town of Lockerbie of which the event became known as The Lockerbie Bombing.

The decision to release Megrahi, who has terminal prostate cancer, was made by the Scottish Government based upon compassionate grounds. The government said it had consulted widely before Scottish Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill made his decision on applications for Megrahi's compassionate release or his transfer to a Libyan jail. And Mr MacAskill stressed that he accepted the conviction and sentence which had been handed to Megrahi.
"Mr al-Megrahi did not show his victims any comfort or compassion. They were not allowed to return to the bosom of their families to see out their lives, let alone their dying days. No compassion was shown by him to them," he said.
"But that alone is not a reason for us to deny compassion to him and his family in his final days."
Mr MacAskill continued: "Our justice system demands that judgement be imposed, but compassion be available.
"For these reasons and these reasons alone, it is my decision that Mr Mr Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al-Megrahi, convicted in 2001 for the Lockerbie bombing, now terminally ill with prostate cancer, be released on compassionate grounds and be allowed to return to Libya to die."
US president Barack Obama said the decision was "a mistake" and some US victims' families reacted angrily. Some 189 Americans were among those who died in the explosion.
Although it could be argued whether he should serve out his term or not this is of little significance to the events surrounding the release. In an apparent meeting 2 years prior, the UK PM of the time and Colonel Gaddafi had discussed a deal involving the release of Megrahi.
Almost after as soon as the release was agreed, BP chairman Peter Sutherland announced the firm was investing about £500million - to search for oil in Libya.

The Charity Fat Cats

Just £2 per month we can end suffering, poverty, cruelty to whole number of causes. You must have seen the adverts. So how come after all these years we still have the same problems? After all this time these third world countries are still in such a state? Could it be that your hard earned money that you so generously donate doesn't even leave the country, or for that matter leave the organisation you have paid it too. Just a little bit of research and you will see that the CEO's of your favourite charity are drawing salaries in excess of £100,000 / year not to mention their pension contribution of in the excess of £20,000 / year.

Amazing considering that most local charities, struggling to get funding, do excellent work, run mainly by volunteers tend to run on about £10,000 to £20,000 / year.

Now I totally understand that in order to become a successful charity you need someone with a good business background and acumen, but come on its still a not-for-profit charity and £100,000+ a year is taking the piss. If they want to earn that kind of money then work for a business, not a charity. Considering people are paying their hard earned money and only a small percentage is actually going to the cause is wrong.

My advise is donate to you local charities who are run by volunteers. Local Youth Organisations where you will find that 100% of you donation will go to benefit the cause.

If you are still unsure then see my previous post - local sea cadet units are volunteer run charities and i can guarantee your generous donation wont go to line some fat cats pocket.

Young Offenders

The Charity Barnardo's has just released a report stating that children between the ages of 12 and 14 are being given custodial sentences, and has found that more than a third of them should not have been put behind bars, when judged against the Government’s own criteria. Many other reports have stated that prison sentences dont work.

Now there are many areas of concern here and it amazes me when i here that it costs £30,000 / year to imprison a youth and yet there are stuggling youth centres that cannot get funding that cost £10,000 - £15,000 / year and ususally house between 10 - 100 kids.
So now here comes the argument - do youth centres work? Well i'd have to say yes, absolutely. In particular the uniformed ones like army, Air and Sea Cadets.
Ok so going off track from the original post but maybe if we looked more at how to resolve the issues instead of how to deal with them then maybe we wouldnt have to worry about sentencing our youth. So many times you hear theres no discipline, theres no respect from the youth of today, but to be fair what the hell do they have to respect? You cant just demand respect, it has to be earnt both ways. I am so sick of hearing it wasnt like that in my day and we didnt have anything to do in our day. Except for the fact that all the green land that you probably played on when you were younger has now been turned into housing. Also there was far less social pressure as there is today. The increse in media and technology in the past tens years has alllowed the increase influx in information available which in some ways is good but in many ways bad, with everybody being able to force upon their views. Increased advertising also has put an increased pressure on society.
So what is the resolve - get involved with your local youth centre. The Cadet forces are fantastic as they offer a diverse range of activities. Also help develop self discipline, social interaction, team work and whole range of other skills, not to mention a structured routine where they wont be on the streets they will be too knacked for start.
But the problem is not the kids, the problem is the adults, the lack of respect is from todays adults, who are to lazy to get out and help the development of tomorrows generation. You would think that in the current climate that there would be an influx of volunteers but if only.
And what is not realised is that 80% of employment oppotunities are found through networking and where better to network with other adults and parents than at a youth club.
