Was just watching a show last night where the reporter was looking for the woman with the largest breat implants in the world, who turns out to be Sheyla Hershey. Apparently she’s had a total of 9 breast operations already. I think it’s all very sad. It’s seems she thinks she has to undergo these surgeries in order to be happy. She needs therapy not bigger breasts. I think it’s horrific but mostly feel sad for her. Someone must be feeling pretty low to do this

I’m sure it must be great for those people who have a mortgage or some other type of loan but for me I don’t. Instead I have savings and this 1% interest rate is just horrible for me. I guess I’m just being selfish but I can’t help it. It’s not that I’m rich and have paid off my mortgage or anything. Actually I don’t even own my own home. I would like to at some point but until then I would like to be able to get some nice interest on my savings. Then I will have more money for puting down as a deposit on a mortgage. Oh well, I guess that’s just one of them things. I just hope that it has the effect they are wanting.

I can’t say I was ever much of a fan of Jade Goody. On the rare occasions that I turned it on to BB I was less than impressed with her. I was even less than impressed by the people who watched the show and made her famous. But my heart goes out to her and her family as I wouldn’t wish this cancer on anyone. She was saying how she’s trying to make as much money as she can at the moment. Not for her but for her children. She has realized how fancy cars and big houses aren’t important. I trully agree with her, I only wish that people didn’t have to go through major health scares to realize this fact.
I hope that if nothing else comes from this experience, that people perhaps can learn a lesson from Jade Goody and learn about what really matters in life. Also, the importance of getting a regular cervical smear. I have to admit that I need to learn this lesson myself and will need to make an appointment from the doctor.

I was watching a TV show at the weekend about the health system in America. A lot of people in the UK think that America is the land of milk and honey but when you find out about how people aren’t being given basic levels of health care it’s just horrible. Even people who pay for health insurance aren’t necessarily being given the care they paid for. Also, because of the way the system is set up drugs in the US costs 6 times more that in Europe and Canada. That’s just disgusting.
Luckily Obama is trying to get things turned around but before that happens he need to make sure that the health insurance industry can’t, effectively, bride congress. Only then will he be able to get politicians to vote for what is right rather than because they are being given all sorts of benefits from the health insurance companies.

Everytime I turn on the TV there are news reports about how awaful the state of our economy is. But then I got out an about and see so many people spending money in pubs and restaurants. I mean there are still loads of people going out to eat and drink. To the point where I find it too busy and can’t even get a table straightaway.
Also, there was a news report about all the jobs losses there have been but then they skip over any jobs that have been created by companies expanding. But of course, that doesn’t make such “news.” They only care about getting viewers and I truly beleive that the media is partially to blame for unemployment. They always act as though the glass is half empty rather than half full. I’m not saying they are causing the problem, they just aren’t exactly helping to fan the flames.
