Let us Start
Here’s how a doctor explains it:
A woman in her late 20’s came to the hospital today with her 8th pregnancy
She said to me me “My mum told me that I am the breadwinner for the family.”
I asked her to explain. She said that she can make babies and babies get money from the State for the family.
It goes like this:
The Grandma calls the Department for work and pensions, and states that the unemployed daughter is not capable of caring for all of her kids. DWP agrees, and tells her the children will need to go into foster care.
The Grandma then volunteers to be the foster parent, and receives a cheque for £700 per child each month.
Total yearly income:
£58,800 soon to become £67200 when the 8th one is born, tax-free and nobody has to go to work!
In fact, they get more if there is no husband/father/man in the home! The brother does not count.
Not to mention free dental treatment, free housing, free council tax free school dinners, free tuition fees at college or Uni, free eyecare and glasses, free prescriptions and various other benefits…
Total value of all benefits combined probably approaching £100,000 per annum which would require an income of around £148000 to create.
That’s about my salary as a senior consultant with years of experience and surgical skills in a central London teaching hospital.
Indeed, Grandma was correct that her fertile daughter is the “breadwinner” for the family.
This is how the politicians spend our taxes. When this generous programme was invented in the ’60s, the Great Society architects forgot to craft an end date… and now we are hopelessly overrun with people who vote only for those who will continue to keep them on the dole…..
No wonder our country is broke!
Worse, our Muslim brothers have been paying attention, and by mandating that each Muslim family have eleven children, they will soon replace the voting bloc above and can be running this country.
Are we alarmed yet, is anybody listening?

Don’t forget to pay your taxes!!
There are a lot of “breadwinners” depending on you!
Well? Is anybody listening??
Do we all have to wait for someone to translate this into Australian?

- How to Be a good Wife / Daughter in lawFor nearly two decades, I have been married to a great man with an amazing–and amazingly insane–family. I have often joked with my husband that someday I will write a soap opera pilot based on his family. Now, with soap operas on their way out, maybe it will be an unreal reality show. In any case, his family–complete with the four-time married estranged father with a debilitating neurological disease and a mail-order bride, many full, step and half siblings, a politician, a couple of lawyers, a professor (and a Mary Ann, but not on Gilligan’s Island)–all became my family, too, on our wedding day, including, most importantly, my husband’s mother.
Throughout our marriage, my mother-in-law has been both a source of friendship and love as well as the deep grooves that have formed from biting my tongue so much. I have the dubious honor of being the wife of her baby boy–and the youngest of her natural children and her step-children.
Here, I offer what I think has helped me be a good daughter in law (it makes life easier) and has kept me out of the advice columns.
1. Make sure your husband has cut the apron strings.
This might sound like a recipe for disaster, but it has to happen in order to have a good relationship with your mom-in-law. Until my husband personally told his mother that, no, we were not inviting 200 of her closest relatives to our wedding, she was on her way to ruling our roost. But that last snip cut not only the last of the apron string but all the tension that was building up. Well, at least for a while. Without cutting those apron strings, though, your husband has two women trying to have a primary relationship with him. That won’t work–and that is the source of many of those advice column letters.
2. Make sure your husband calls, texts, e-mails or whatever his mother.
This is advice that came from my own mother. She used it with my dad and his mom. “You haven’t talked to your mom for a while. You should call your mom.” Encourage a new, adult relationship between your husband and his mother. She may or may not realize it is you behind the weekly or so phone calls–but she won’t feel as if she’s lost her little boy.
3. Call, text, e-mail or whatever your mother-in-law.
Yes, you. Call your mother-in-law on your own. Try it–she probably won’t bite. Attempt to forge a friendship with her. You married her son. You love him. Ergo, she might be a compatible friend to you. Don’t know what to talk about? Start with what you have in common: her son. Perhaps it is as simple as telling her what he’s been up to that he wouldn’t have told her himself. It’s amazing the conversational differences between men on the phone and women on the phone. He could have had a botched root canal and when his mom asks how his day was, he’d say, “Fine. What’s up with you?” Your mother-in-law will learn that you are actually the true source of information for what her son is actually doing in life. Conversations immediately become much easier once you and your spouse have children. Then, no matter how different you and the mom-in-law are, you have motherhood and her grandchild in common.
4. Don’t say “no” too often.
This is easier if your in-laws live out of town like mine do. But then again, perhaps saying no is a bigger deal when they want to visit and haven’t seen the grandkids for a few months. Anyway, try not to actually say “no” very often. “We’re really busy next weekend. The kids have x, y and z to do. Is there a better weekend?” That’s both honest and polite–and doesn’t get very negative. Leave the negative out as much as possible.
5. Respect the in-law (aka Remember to bite your tongue)
I yelled at my mother-in-law once on the phone (because we live too far apart to do it in person). And it set back our relationship, my husband’s relationship with his mom and could have impacted her relationship with our kids if I had let it. Big mistake (even though I was right!). It took a long time to feel like we were back to normal. If you feel yourself boiling over, learn to bite your tongue.
6. Watch what you post on Facebook
While we are on the subject of biting your tongue: Don’t post your frustrations with your in-laws on Facebook. Even if you aren’t friends with any in-laws on Facebook, your husband probably is. And surely, you are friends with your husband. Someone is bound to say something. I’m even rather wary about publishing this article! And I’m certainly not going to promote it on Facebook or Twitter.
7. Go out for some mother-in-law / daughter-in-law alone time.
Lunch out, shopping, a museum. Go out with her–do something you both like together. This helps you build some memories together. Most mother-in-laws work, if they haven’t retired yet. Shopping for work clothes or shoes together might help you explore areas of each other’s lives that neither of you probably know much about.
8. Let her baby-sit the babies if she wants to.
Unless she has a history of child abuse, you should let her baby-sit and even have the kids overnight. She’s been in charge of small kids before (her own) who made it to adulthood. Even though cribs are built differently, walkers aren’t used anymore and the average child watches more TV in one year than we did in 10, your mother-in-law will be fine with the basics for at least a few hours. Plus, sometimes grandmas have a magic touch that can help get kids (and you) through a stage you haven’t quite been able to master. My own mom scooped up the 4-month-old baby and stated, “Tonight, she can sleep in her nursery. She doesn’t need to sleep in your room anymore.” And Mom was right. Everyone slept much better. My mother-in-law helped potty train my youngest, and my step-father-in-law taught our middle child to ride a bike with no training wheels. I think it’s a combination of patience and seeing the situation with a fresh pair of eyes. Do not feel intimidated or mad if your mother-in-law teaches your child something new–rejoice that it is one more thing off your mental, maternal to-do list.
9. Begin your visits with a hug and smile. And remember to say “I love you.”
Individuals have been getting good plus more conscious as to the need for them breathing outdoors at their properties and so the need for their properties as being pollutant free as you possibly can is at the top of their list of priorities today. The ventilation kind of their homes is currently such a lot of homeowners have been centering on in recent years; ventilation grilles, air grilles, air ventilation grilles continues to be the talk for both the contractors as well as the homeowners lips nowadays.
A lot of contemporary houses utilize central air conditioning becasue it is way of primary method by which these buildings are being cooled. These kind of cooling systems work with a variety of air ducts that air ducts equally allocate the cool air from the building. The air grilles serve as the covers for the vent that is along with air ducts. The grille design of the vents serves to keep objects that are big from the air-duct system.
The typical air ventilation grille is made of flat metal that’s attached with either a floor or perhaps a wall of the building and also the air ducts with the ventilation system are safe from rodents and objects. A most these air ducts are painted white and so are fashioned from your material which is lightweight.
These ventilation grilles, air grilles and air ventilation grilles as they are sometimes described can be found in a number of different designs. They can be found in wood, brass, painted and ceramic materials in addition to their ducts will be more often than not set either on to the floor or around the ceiling from the room. They are a lot more desirable when they are installed with a design that matches the floor or they ceiling where they’re being set.
Each homeowner can customize their own grilles depending on their particular tastes and so on the home’s d?cor as well. Some homeowners opt for wrought iron grilles that you can usually get in dark brass or in black. However, these are generally somewhat pricier that the regular grilles as they are fashioned from iron material that is quite heavy.
Small vent switches are typically within the air grilles so that the grille can open and close. There is really a switch that is used to shut from the air flow from the room or a specific area of a building. This saves money, since areas that aren’t getting used do not possess to be unnecessarily cooled.

The below pictures of a very hungry mouse have been brilliantly captured by photography student Casey Gutteridge at the Santago Rare Leopard Project in Hertfordshire.
The 19-year-old, from Potters Bar, Hertfordshire, who was photographing the leopard for a course project, was astounded by the mouse’s behaviour. He said: ‘I have no idea where the mouse came from – he just appeared in the enclosure after the keeper had dropped in the meat for the leopard.
‘He didn’t take any notice of the leopard, just went straight over to the meat and started feeding himself.
‘But the leopard was pretty surprised – she bent down and sniffed the mouse and flinched a bit like she was scared.
‘In the meantime the mouse just carried on eating like nothing had happened…but even a gentle shove does not deter the little creature from getting his fill.
‘It was amazing, even the keeper who had thrown the meat into the enclosure was shocked – he said he’d never seen anything like it before.’
Project owner Jackie James added: ‘It was so funny to see – Sheena batted the mouse a couple of times to try to get it away from her food.
‘But the determined little thing took no notice and just carried on.’
Sheena was brought in to the Santago Rare Leopard Project from a UK zoo when she was just four months old.
She is one of 14 big cats in the private collection started by Jackie ‘s late husband Peter in 1989.
