She had a local band on as well who went by the name: "Bad Luck Thursdays". All in all I think they had a great time and so did we. Read her testimony on my
feedback/guestbook page now.
I've just seen an article on "South Today" about "devorce parties". Could this be a "Catch them after the wedding" new line of business? I'm a devorcee and flying back from the event in America was the guiltiest flight of my life. I didn't cheat or anything, I just felt really bad. Still, I have a friend who put up with a total bastard of a bloke for 18 years and I reckon she might have grounds for a celebration.
I got a text this morning from another DJ who shall remain nameless. he was telling us all that he's inundated with gigs for December and January next year and to text him back if we were available. I like him as a person and he helped me get into this business, but unfortunately he takes forever to part with his cash. The expression: "Short arms and deep pockets" comes to mind. I always feel a bit like "Terry" to his "Arthur Daly" character. Last year it got so ridiculous I had to threaten to take the bugger to court to get my dosh. I don't know how true it is but I heard of another DJ going to his house, Punching him and carrying him over his shoulder to his cash point to expidite payment! Sounds like a scene from a movie doesn't it? I guess it ain't worth the hassle and the stress. Shame but there you are.
Another friend said to me yesterday she is trying to lose some weight. I suggested the diet that Becky and I are on whereby we just try and juice raw organic veg every night. We drink the juice and cook up the leftover pulp in some garlic and olive oil for something solid to eat. Unless off course I've already juiced some raw garlic as this is brilliant for your immune system. I haven't had a cold since I started doing this and I used to get quite a few. I always put a bit of sea salt and herbs on it as well to give it some taste. Also I think some sea salt is good for your body, as opposed to the neat rock salt we all grew up on. I know it's controversial but a little bit of sunlight helps to boost your immune system too as it produces vitamin D. This is why most of us get colds and flue in winter because we aren't getting any. A few trips to the sunbed might help. we've been on this diet for a couple of months now and the weight is just falling off. I, like my friend am a certified chocoholic but since starting this, the urge has largely gone away for deserts and chocolate. I think it's because for the first time in my life I am finally getting all the nutrients my body needs. A long time ago I was briefly tempted to work for a company called "Herbalife" who, apart from at the time having an awful pyramid selling scheme, maintain that you're only hungry when your body needs some nutrient or other and if you fill up on nutrient free food, you're always going to be hungry and so potentially put on weight. this theory seems to be proving itself true. I'm told that the ideal diet to prevent over weight and cancer is a 90% raw plant based one with about 10% animal protein. This creates a largely alkaline body environment which is good for your immune system. The typical western "beige food" diet being a largely acid and potentially cancer-friendly one.
I'm not trying to be "holier than thou." We did have cod and chips the other night and I still love my sandwiches, albeit the best rustic brown bread I can find. But I've lost my love handles and a slight double chin thing. Even though we go to the gym every week it wasn't losing me the excess weight/fat. So this would appear to be the other "prong of the fork" if you will. Since I've gone off on this much of a tangent I might as well tell you that the "cherry on the top" is to drink at least 2 litres of the purest water you can create, as this really helps keep your body clean and lean. I use one of those filter jugs from Tescos but a "reverse osmosis filter" is the best if you can afford it. I've heard of one guy who has one and sells his water to his neighbours, as the lack of hormones and drug traces in his "product" makes them feel so much better than with what we shall call here: bog standard southern tap water.
All I need now is some way of growing back my hair so I look less like Bruce Willis as every body is telling me these days.
I wondered what they meant, but then I saw "5th Element" last night and Becky looked at me and I said NO! don't say it! And my (work out) vests aren't ever that dirty either..I guess it could be worse. I could be a double for John Prescott...
