Toilet Confusion in Laos

The English language is a wonderful thing, it being the language of international business, used by airline pilots and ship’s captains of every nation and used in so many different ways.

The English language is also reasonably easy to use once you have learned a few rather odd idiosyncrasies such as the difference between ‘there’ and ‘their’ and just because the plural of Mouse is Mice don’t automatically expect House to do the same! All of which means that the English language like all good tools is easy to use.

However having said that the English language does seem to be a rather difficult brute to use if one wants to use it in translation, do check the example below a simple translation of Lao, the language of the country with almost the same name Laos, but then maybe learning English in a country that was once known as the kingdom of Lan Xang (or Million Elephants) is a problem, they certainly seem to have made it so!

Preventing Toilets In Laos From Doing What

If any dear cuddly reader can tell the poor confused cat what on earth preventing a toilet is then they may well win a copy of my latest unputdownable book ‘The Cat’s Travelogue.’

Fire Alarm Testes!

While researching my latest and most wonderful (to date) book which if you have been living in a cave or Rochdale and haven’t heard is called ‘The Cat’s Travelogue’ I travelled the world and encountered strange people who erect bizarre signs in there very own edition of the English language.

Ladies and Gentlemen I give you “Fire Alarm Testes!” from sunny smog filled Shanghai.

Fire Alarm Testes Check How Long Too

What else can I add? Well I suppose the obvious what a load of rubbish, and did you see how long the brief Fire Alarm Test will take 8 hours! Mmh what an advanced nation!

At Last A Religion With A Sense Of Humour?

So here’s proof that some religions actually do have a sense of humour. Trust it to be the Buddhists who I understand are pretty calm and collected, for religious nuts.

At Last A Religion With A Sense of Humour Or Is That Irony

I’ve heard that Buddhists don’t preach elitism, fire and damnation or any of the usual religious stuff and that’s nice. Although isn’t Buddhism the religion that believes that if you are a bad human you will come back as a lesser being or animal? Which suggests to me that Buddhists may think that a bad human might be reincarnated as a Cat! Really, that isn’t very nice is it?

Found one Cat

A lot of people apparently have not been able to find the section of my website that has random sneak peeks of my latest book The Cat’s Travelogue in “good old” some say (I don’t) www.google.com so here is a link that will take you there immediately Travelogue Website.

There I am happy to announce that at least that is one missing Cat’s website found!

When you click that you’ll be able to read a synopsis of the book and just as you can with my other book ‘Getting Out – Excerpts from a Cat’s Diary’ you will be able to read a page of my latest feline masterpiece ‘The Cat’s Travelogue’ and get to see what others have thought about it, mind you there aren’t many reviews there at the moment because I imagine that people are only half way through my wonderful book because it is that new.

Travelogue by John Woodcock

You can order copies of my books at my www.wickedlywonderfulwebsite store of course here www.thecatsdiary.com or from the ever reliable www.amazon.com here The Cat’s Travelogue Paperback Edition for the paperback or here for the ebook edition The Cat’s Travelogue ebook.

You may find that you have ordered a copy of my must have unputdownable ebook only to find that you don’t, as yet, have an eReader well don’t worry about that those nice people at www.amazon.com will gladly let you have one for money they probably will suggest a Kindle Fire which you can get if you click on the nice picture below

Or if you want to have a good look at other eReading machines you can simply click here Computers which will take you to www.amazon.com’s computer department.

There you will find a good few eReaders, I understand that a company that grows great pie fruit does a nifty reader that can also be used as some sort of pad, though what sort of pad it is I haven’t managed to fathom out yet because you can’t wrap it around a leg, it’s way too thin to use as a pillow and not quite big enough to curl up on and when I tried I slipped off the shiny glass screen, but for all of that I understand the iPad is a popular gadget so don’t rule it out just because it isn’t cuddly or unable to stop bleeding like most pads.

Then there are several copies of the iPad which are all called tablets but they are even odder than the iPad because you definitely can’t take two of these with water three times as day.

I could of course go on, but to prove all of my critics wrong I won’t…

Someone Should Wash Their Lorry

I did quite a bit of travelling while I was researching my unputdownable latest masterpiece of feline literature ‘The Cat’s Travelogue’ and sometimes the road was dark and dangerous, you know the type of road I mean one where the gravel from it falls off when your tyres come close to edge and then tumbles down a cliff face for hundreds of feet into oblivion.

But not all roads are like those ones in Britain, where there are misnamed pot holes (they really should be called ravines), no a lot of the roads I travelled on were wonderful, neat, nicely made and great to drive on, although that could be because the countries that have those roads either don’t have the traffic because most of the population can’t afford to drive like India or they reduce the number of drivers on the road by predijuice by not allowing women to drive as they do in the most backward of countries like Saudi Arabia.

Just interrupting myself for a moment, and my dear faithful readers know I do that a lot and to be honest probably expect it of me, I have found that women drivers are much better than their male counterparts, I was once driven from a racetrack in the middle of Kent (Brands Hatch) to London by an English lady F1 racing driver called Divina Galicia and it was wonderful, she drove the car in a way that I don’t think many could, it was exciting, fun and well within most of the laws of the land.

Still this blog isn’t about drivers, male or female, it’s about a lorry that I saw on the roads in Britain, a country that was once really nice and is now as filthy as this lorry’s bottom. As the tile says someone really should wash their lorry – before the truth comes out!

If you look as closely at this picture as I have you’ll no doubt see that in order to write in the filth covering the lorry’s rear whoever wrote the little jokette had to clean some of the scank off amazing!

Still they do say that individuals are to be treasured and you would have to be an individual to drive a lorry like this and get a nickname like ‘Rapid Ray.’

Someone Should Wash Their Lorry

Just in case you would like to buy my latest masterpiece of feline literature or if, god forbid, you are one of the uncool few who haven’t bought my previous work of genius here are some links that will whizz you off at a click to those nice humans at www.amazon.com who can send you a copy in return for either your own money or if you can arrange it someone else’s, I have always found that using someone else’s cash is to be preferred.

Arkansas’ Best Kept Secret – And Let’s Keep It That Way!

You know I have a friend who lives in Arkansas and I was wondering if she had ever visited this little town with such an ‘interesting’ name? Because I understand that this little place is one of Arkansas’ best kept secrets.

Arkansas Best Kept Secret

Really I ask you what were they thinking about when they named this town? Even this innocent Cat knows what a Bald Knob is err… some kind of Native American Chief of course and it’s a shame that whoever named the town after the great Bald Knob didn’t know that it’s embarrassing for Native Americans (I believe they were called the Chickamauga Cherokee) to have towns named after them!

You may have noticed that I have been travelling the world a lot recently wearing my paws out to bring you my latest masterpiece of feline literature ‘The Cat’s Travelogue’ I wouldn’t call it a labour of love frankly but I’m sure that there are as many things and indeed places in my wonderful new book to make you laugh out loud as many times as you did with my previous book ‘Getting Out Excerpts from a Cat’s Diary.’

You can get my latest book in all of its glorious forms using this link that those nice people at Amazon.com gave me The Cat’s Travelogue Paperback Edition or here The Cat’s Travelogue ebook and just for you I have pasted a picture of the cover of my wonderful new book below so that you know what to look for. Or of course you can click your way to my www-wickedly wonderful website and buy as many copies as you like my store at www.thecatsdiary.com.
