Here's my latest news and jokes update

Here's my latest "Friday Offering"

Welcome to the Bob Hambleton web site,  

Scroll down to this WEEK'S FRIDAY OFFERING

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here’s the latest "Offering" for  13-07-2018

Greetings,

 A ’Long Awaited’ Publication has now Taken Place.

      I am delighted to announce that ‘at long last’ “Sarina’s Archers” has been published.  This is the third book in the “Sarina” series and is already available from Spiderwize, just follow this link:-

https://www.spiderwize.com/library/books/sarina's-archers

     It is also already listed on Amazon, as both a paperback and a downloadable ebook, just go to their web site and enter the title, Sarina’s Challenge.

     It will be available on the Millfield Publishing web site very shortly (see below for the cause of the delay.)

 

A bit of “Free Time” has led to a very busy week.

      Being between books, so to speak, has given me the feeling of having some spare time which I decided to use concentrating on the Millfield Publishing web site.  This has never worked properly, and I was determined to get it functioning as required or to do some drastic surgery and start again with a different supplier.

     Working with an open mind I was able to sort out the problems and now the site does function but there are some annoying details to deal with, like getting the ‘shop’ section to include the postage costs correctly.  This will happen, but it isn’t fully operational just yet.  Still Watch this space!

 A relaxed Day-Out and happy returned to a Favourite Haunt.

      For the first time for a few weeks we were able to indulge ourselves and go for a ‘day-out.’  We crossed the Clyde and went west along the river up to Helensburgh for a wander round and lunch in Colquhoun Square.

     The square has been ‘under development during all our previous visits but now appears to be ‘finished.’  As well as the beautifully paved walk ways and paths around the grassed areas there are many seats and small stone ‘obelisks’ some of which are dedicated in honour of local heroes, such as John Logie Baird and his father.

  Enough, to business:-

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Graffiti  from the Italian word “graffito”  =  a scratch,  first used to describe the wall markings found in Pompeii.

             “Not for sale during the French postal strike.”  -  on a contraceptive vending machine.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Some  more of  The World’s Stupidest Signs

             “Now is the summer of our discount tents.”   -   In the window of a camping shop in Bolton, England.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Notable Quotations

                       “In a mere half century, films have gone from silent to unspeakable.”   -   Doug Larson

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Best one liners

            I needed a password eight characters long, so I picked Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.  -  Nick Helm

   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Interesting little titbits

          Thomas Edison designed a helicopter that would work with gunpowder. It ended up blowing up and also blew up his factory.

        McDonalds calls frequent buyers of their food, heavy users.


        Americans ate eight million more orders of french fries and almost six million more hamburgers this year compared to last.  (Not sure how old that data is.  -  Bob)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All the best,

Bob, Dad, Uncle or Cousin (which ever applies!)

The origins of my “Friday Offering”

    Some years ago a friend started sending out the odd joke (some were very odd) which he called “Something for Friday.”  Since I had friends and relations that he didn’t know I started passing them on, calling mine a “Friday Offering.” I rapidly progressed to finding my own material and my original supplier then ceased his weekly publication but over time my small distribution list has grown and is still growing.  Encouraged by the feedback and contributions I have received, the ‘Offering’ has grown and the format become established to be my latest news and wry observations, a collection of jokes and amusing quotations.  I am told that it gets forwarded to every continent (except Antarctica, anyone know someone down there?)

    If you would like to be added to the "Friday" list  and receive these 'Offerings' on a regular basis, (your email address will not be made available to anyone else,) then please e-mail me by clicking this link  bobhambleton@aol.com
