Last night after a lot of fiddling about with my computer lol, me and Janna Boop had a lovely Yahoo Audio Chat, it was lovely to hear you voice Janna as I love American accents, I just can't get enough of them, although me having a cold, sounded like I had a peg on my nose lol.

Finally got round to tweaking my blog a bit so it's easier to read, don't want to change the picture yet as I still love it, also added a couple of pictures in the sidebar, although the layout has not changed it looks better I think.

Can't really think that anything has happened in my life recently to report appart from I got empolyee of the month at work last week so I must be doing something right lol.

Still no damn UK tour dates................oh well I'll just have to be patient and look forward to all your reviews and pictures from the US gigs, which I am looking forward to, so get your camera's at the ready, can't wait to see pictures of our boys, it's been too long since the last tour, well for us anyway lol.

Hugs for now.

I don't normally buy things from the TV shopping channels but last weekend I was in a lot of pain in my back, neck and shoulder due to a car accident a few years back and they happened to be selling a TENS Drug Free Pain Relief System on Price Drop TV so I thought I'll try anything once so hubby bought it for me, bless him......BLESS HIM good god, I tried it out tonight after work, its these small electrodes that you attach to your skin that send electric pulses to the point of the pain, more like electric shock treatment lol, I was like, GET IT OFF, GET IT OFF. If the pain was bad before lol the electric shock takes your mind of it and its only run of one of those little round flat batteries, god help me if it was plugged into the mains. Not sure what TENS actually stands for, could it be - TOTALLY ELECTRIFYING NASTY SHOCK treatment?

Yesterday me and hubby decided to go to Whitby for the day, for those of you who don't know, Whitby is a fishing village situated on the east coast of England on the North Yorkshire Moors and is famous for Dracula, Captain James Cook & Whitby Jet.

What is the connection between Whitby and Dracula? First of all, Whitby figures quite centrally in a significant section of the novel Dracula (Chapters 6-8). It is where the Russian ship "Demeter" comes ashore and is the location of the first encounters between Dracula and Lucy. Today, there are many points of interest for the Dracula enthusiast in Whitby.

It was at Whitby that Stoker "discovered" the name "Dracula." While vacationing there in the summer of 1890, just months after he began writing his vampire novel, he visited the local library and borrowed a book entitled An Account of the Principalities of Wallachia and Moldavia (1820) by William Wilkinson. He took several notes from it (now part of his papers housed at the Rosenbach Museum in Philadelphia.) Wilkinson's book includes a short section on a "voivode Dracula" who fought against the Turks. Though the information was sketchy, one item attracted Stoker's attention (he copied it verbatim into his notes): a footnote that "Dracula in the Wallachian language means Devil." Stoker decided to change the name of his vampire Count from "Wampyr" to "Dracula". An inspired decision!

So there ya go a bit of English history.

I took a few photo's while we were there as Whitby is one of the most beautiful places in England
