I am happy to be a sponsor of the contest with Boxes For Beds as one of the featured books. With over 100 reviews, this is one of my most popular mysteries. And check out all the other sponsored books while you’re at the site. There are lots of genres from which to choose: mystery, romance, fantasy, humor and more.
Good luck with the contest, and do let me know if you are a winner. I will announce that in my next newsletter.
And now a bit of British humour to start our week off on a pleasant note. (Notice how I spelled humour properly if I happened to live on the other side of the pond? Can someone give me a “good chap” or is that only for men?)
Alerts to Terrorist Activity From John Cleese, of Monty Python fame.
The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Syria and have therefore raised their security level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or even “A Bit Cross.” The English have not been “A Bit Cross” since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies nearly ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from “Tiresome” to “A Bloody Nuisance.” The last time the British issued a “Bloody Nuisance” warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada.
The Scots have raised their threat level from “Pissed Off” to “Let’s get the Bastards.” They don’t have any other levels. This is the reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years.
The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from “Run” to “Hide.” The only two higher levels in France are “Collaborate” and “Surrender.” The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France’s white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country’s military capability.
Italy has increased the alert level from “Shout Loudly and Excitedly” to “Elaborate Military Posturing.” Two more levels remain: “Ineffective Combat Operations” and “Change Sides.”
The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.
Australia , meanwhile, has raised its security level from “No worries” to “She’ll be right, Mate.” Two more escalation levels remain: “Crikey! I think we’ll need to cancel the barbie this weekend!” and “The barbie is cancelled.” So far no situation has ever warranted use of the last final escalation level.
