Is there anybody gone to listen to this story??? I don’t know how but I kind of missed this movie. It was realeased in 2007 and I just heard of it???. Anyway, I just watched it and ok it’s a cheesy love story about a boy from England who decides to go to America to find his father-blablabla- he falls in love with an American girl and together they experience the up’s and down’s of America in the late 60’s.

As I said it’s a really cheesy movie told mainly through numerous Beatles songs but totally ok for a rainy Sunday afternoon 😉 and whoo hoo Jim Sturgess has an amazing voice and one of the best Irish accents I’ve ever heard 😉


This is hilarious….

I could not stop laughing after I read this article….

“… The JetBlue flight attendant entered the elite pantheon of American heroes the morning of Aug. 9. The plane had just landed in New York City when a passenger attempted to snag his suitcase from his overhead compartment.

Slater, whose primary job is to ensure passengers abide by Federal Aviation Administration rules, not to act as a waiter/baby sitter, instructed the passenger to remain in her seat until given the OK to collect her belongings.

A struggle ensued during which Slater allegedly was hit in the head by the case, and the passenger hurled an expletive at the attendant.

Slater could not know he was about to spark a revolution when he used the plane’s public address system to announce he had eaten one bite of crap too many while on the job.

Legend has it, Slater thanked the respectful customers he’d served over the years before laying into his nemesis.

“To the m—————r who just told me to f—- off, f—- you. I’ve been in this business 20 years. And that’s it, I’m done,” Slater said.

Slater then grabbed two beers out of the fridge, activated the plane’s emergency chute and slid to freedom at just before noon. … “

…. I can totally understand this guy. Passengers are unbelivable, …and now Slater could be jailed for seven years…come on that’s ridiculous. What about the woman? How about arresting her for breaching on-board safety regulations. Nobody is talking about her risking other passenger life while opening the overhead bin….

Anyway, this guy made my day 😉

If you live in Germany you might have noticed that everywhere you look you see this guy…

…and like for a whole week I was wondering who this person is. So today I googled it and found out that this handsome young man is a German actor, called Sebastian Ströbel 😉

Hello darlings and happy Sunday. Here comes a delicious Sunday treat for you. I wanted to share this uber seductive little song with you which is sung by the gorgeous April Stevens. It was given to me by a friend and I have never heard it before. Enjoy!

And no, it’s not an ode to Tiger Woods. 😉
