Helen's been abducted by aliens. ;-)

helen has been out of circulation for a week or two. i think she's having computer probs. so i went to my email inbox to find one i could post that was newsy and entertaining. i'm sure she'll be back soon, but thanks for keeping on reading and posting your comments. i know she loves it.
by way of explanation, helen is castigating me in the email for being weak-willed last year during lent when i folded quickly despite my resolve to give up TV, for my sins. she says that Mary probably did better. (she's probably right, Mary is much more devout than moi). Mary is also a f.o.t.h. and a much better woman than me, gunga din. and Katie, is a f.o.t.h. and had recently been cleaning up 'caca' according to this email. but why? i can't remember to be honest. but it's something that katie would do.
the f.o.t.h.s. (friends of the heart sisterhood) are
Helen--chief foth
yours truly --clippy mat aka pat,
Vee, who lives and works in Saudi Arabia
Katie who retired from living and working in S.Arabia and now lives with her hubby in a charming village in Lancashire.
Mary, who lives in the N.East not far from Helen
Syd aka Carolyn who also lives in the NE and is a deputy headmistress of a local hard knock school.
and to refresh your memory, we all went to college together way back in the day and have remained friends since.

Dearest f.o.t.h.s.

Clippy, I've just read your latest bit o blog - it answers many questions I was about to ask you- Atonement I haven't seen the film yet but I almost threw the book out of the bedroom window. I much prefer fast-paced quick-witted & lively writing (have you read any Wendy Holden's chiclit stuff Azur like it (Cannes anything be this Nice) Pastures Nouveax http://www.chicklit.co.uk/authors_wendyholden.asp very English style of writing of the moment!
Yep I'm with you, give me a Roddy Doyle, Frank McCourt or Bill Bryson any day although the Wendy Holdens do make me smile & oftimes chuckle at her clever phrases and use of Franglais.

Have to admit I'm shocked and appalled at your Lenten debacle!! Where's yer backbone woman! Its lovely to know that despite the thousands of miles atween us you're sat sitting there watching the same tv crap as me!! I loved Glen Close in Damages too. Best thing that's been on here in ages, I'm thoroughly sick of all these talentless 'Search for a Star' progs & the crappy 'celebrity' reality shows that are the mainstay of British TV just now 'Celebrity Strictly dancing / 'Celebrity' Big Brother 'Celebrity' Dancing on ice all with minor Z-list celebs & wannabees BRING BACK TENKO!!

Happy reading! Bet Mary's done better for Lent!!!

Katie Kaka cleaner upper: hope that situation has dried up now.

That's all I can do folks as am mucho tired:- had physio this a.m. then hair wash n blow dry (by sis) & at-home massage courtesy of Loraine the Alternative Therapy nurse. So busy- pamper day for me. thought of you all working so hard. tee hee

Love ewes,

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.

Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
