Calibra Turbo pages updates...

Both Calibra Turbo pages have been updated.
On the blue side it's mostly an update of the lack of work (picture wise) I've been doing :( and on the black side - a notice of it's sale. Luckily to another CC member and it's already looking good (a link to it's new home is there too).

Paris 2003

Not long after I first met Gemma I decided I wanted to do something special for her (since she is indeed special). Paris came to mind immediately. I'd personally never been and up until that point I had had no real want to. But when you're with someone that you can enjoy a City like Paris with then it's definitely worth the trip.

We both had a lot of fun there and it was our first real "holiday". We certainly got a lot closer.

Anyway - I found the pictures! They aren't great - it was warmer and lighter than the dark, grey pictures show but you get the idea ;)

Oh and the picture of Gemma's bum was not a mistake. :D

Right.. click here to view them or scroll down on the right and click on the "Holiday - Paris 2003" menu option.

This tickled me...

True or false? You decide...


1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so
weak that it is often mistaken for hunger.
3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's
metabolism as much as 3%.
4. One glass of water will shut down midnight
hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied
in a University of Washington study.
5. Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime
6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses
of water a day could significantly ease back and
joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy
short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and
difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a
printed page.
8. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the
risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the
risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less
likely to develop bladder cancer.

And now for the properties of COKE

1. In many states (in the USA) the highway patrol
carries two gallons of Coke in the truck to remove
blood from the highway after a car accident.
2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of coke and
it will be gone in two days.
3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into
the toilet bowl and let the "real thing" sit for one hour,
then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke
removes stains from vitreous China.
4. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers:
Rub the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of Reynolds
Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.
5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals:
Pour a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to
bubble away the corrosion.
6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Applying a cloth soaked
in Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several
7. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola
into the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and
bake. Thirty minutes before the ham is finished, remove
the foil, allowing the drippings to mix with the Coke for
a sumptuous brown gravy.
8. To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of
coke into a load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and
run through a regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help
loosen grease stains. It will also clean road haze from
your windshield.
For Your Info
1. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric
acid. Its pH is 2.8. It will dissolve a nail in about 4
days. Phosphoric acid also leaches calcium from
bones and is a major contributor to the rising increase
in osteoporosis.
2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the
commercial truck must use the Hazardous material
place cards reserved for Highly corrosive
3. The distributors of coke have been using it to
clean the engines of their trucks for about 20

Now the question is, would you like a glass of
water or coke?
