Of sheep and men

Griff is a 4 year old prize ram that weighs 20 stone and measures 6ft from nose to tail. He is probably the biggest sheep in the world. Home is Beverley, East Yorkshire and he is very popular with visiting children and generates enough income for the family Richardson who have kept sheep since the 19th century. His fleece is exported to Japan where it is used to stuff futon mattresses and he sires 80 lambs a year.

But that's not all to the life of sheep. Two ornamental sheep were stolen from a Norfolk garden.The owner resigned herself to never seeing them again. Three years later the wooly cut-outs appeared along with photos documenting their travels. The album, Larry and Sean's Holiday Photos included snaps of the pair sipping cocktails on a beach in Goa, socialising with camels in Pushkar and gazing at the Taj Mahal. The overjoyed owner thought the whole endeavour was fantastic.

I had read somewhere about the prank of "borrowing" someone's garden gnome and taking it on vacation with you. I recall that the idea of the prank was to send back photos of the gnome having a good time at various vacation spots. Seems like a fairly harmless prank although perhaps one might become annoyed that your garden gnomes are having more fun than you are!

So how much room does a 20 stone ram need to gambol about and sire 80 lambs a year ?

Hi, seeing as you accept anonymous blogging I thought I would send you this info about online gambling from a guy at work. His blog features beat roulette and he has made a fortune from online gambling.

The Online Casino Startup Bonus

When choosing a trustworthy online casino there are many factors you need to consider. Just because one of the great number of online casinos existent today has impressive graphics, games and offers a wide diversity of bonuses, it doesnt mean its a fair and licensed one. Of course, such cases are rare, and, since today there are hundreds of reputable virtual casinos one can choose from, the most important criteria when deciding which one to play at is what they offer.

The first bonus you can get when you first open an account at a casino is the sign up bonus most casinos offer, an encouraging bonus of at least $25, but it may often be higher than $500. Some casinos even match your first deposit, meaning they double it, for free.

Many casinos also offer hundreds of dollars worth bonuses for new players and, if you're the one who brings other friends to the casino, things are even better than that. Most casinos offer a refer a friend bonus and, the more friends you have, the more fortunate you will get. For each friend you refer to the casino, you will get up to $1000, for each friend that they refer, you'll earn up to $300 and, furthermore, for each person that your friend's friends refer, you will earn up to $100. Once you are confident that particular casino is a reliable one, bring as many of your friends as you can to the casino and you'll have all the reasons to enjoy their games. The only thing you need to pay attention to afterwards is to handle the money wisely and not risk it all in a single bet, however confident you may be.

And most casinos give you an alternative to this. They offer you the chance to practice for free at first, and they also give you money to do that, so, it's practically free and you have nothing to lose. When you find the right casino you'll know it from the first time you play there. From then on, they will remind you how important you are to them by giving you special bonuses every month. These bonuses are somewhere around $100 and even higher and they reward you for being a loyal customer. These casinos also offer the so called comp points that accumulate throughout the course of the games you play and at certain points they turn into real money and, depending how long you have been playing at that casino, you may win lots of money.

The most important bonuses casinos offer are the jackpots and prizes you can win at their games. Casinos reward players with millions of dollars each day for their gaming skills. Tournaments and regular casino games are most profitable for gamblers. Only one progressive jackpot, for one single game of slots, for instance, can be of over $ 2 million. And it's only a matter of seconds and a bit of luck to win it.

Most casinos don't need a special occasion to give bonuses. They offer bonuses for the players third and fourth deposits, for being loyal to the casino, or just for being at a table at a certain time. So, it’s only a matter of finding the right casino and from there on, bonuses will keep coming to you. The only problem is that if you don't have a proper money management you won't treasure what you win, it will go away as easily as it came. We may all want those bonuses, but do we know what to do with them and how much of it we should risk in our next bet?

A guy at work recommends the following Casino Gaming Sites, (the trick is to sign up to each and get your startup bonuses) once you have played each one for a while you will get to know which one suits your style of play and which is therefore the most profitable one for you.
