Another ‘Drive Safely” Sign   Leave a comment

With the unexpected snow, that obviously doesn’t have its alarm clock set for ‘Winter,’ falling all over New York I though it was about time to look at silly road signs yet again and I promise you on my travels researching my latest book buster of a book ‘The Cat’s Travelogue’ I saw loads.

Oops I nearly forgot you can get a copy of my latest unputdownable book ‘The Cat’s Travelogue’ here The Cat’s Travelogue Paperback Edition or if you are more than a little wired the ebook here The Cat’s Travelogue ebook.

It seems that people who erect ‘drive safely’ signs are causing havoc with innocent motorists and here is the very latest example.

I bet the poor driver was too busy reading the sign in heavy snow to watch the road and a dangerous piece of ice that started this accident. I do wish that people who are responsible for safety signs would be more responsible don’t you?

Still I suppose the old saying is true, “where you get motorists you get accidents!”A saying that is also true if you replace the word ‘motorist’ with human in this Cat’s experience!

Drive Safely

I am so sorry I can’t resist the urge to show you the cover of my latest book!

Travelogue by John Woodcock

There it’s better to get these sorts of urges over and done with isn’t it?

Worrying Switches At An Hotel In China   Leave a comment

Here is yet another sign that I noticed on my recent travels around the world bumping into idiots and obviously their signs, this one is from the capital of China a dreadful backward place with little or no morals as the end of my little tale will demonstrate.

If you’re looking for Smallpox then look no further because at a flick of a switch you can have a dose at this hotel in Beijing and it doesn’t stop there! So dedicated to service and satisfying your every whim this hotel can at the flick of another switch give you lights that can kill.

Chinese Lighting System Small Pox Ded Lights

Just how many hotels do you stay in offer a “Ded Light Switch?” None I bet! So if you want to make sure that the Smallpox Switch does it’s job properly and kills you, you can use your Ded Light Switch they really leave nothing to chance in China.

Mind you if you are a small child and want to end it all you just have to go out into the street in China and either get run over twice by passing motorists like poor little Yue Yue or more recently a 5 year old boy who was killed in a traffic accident in Sichuan province, it wads alleged that the driver of the truck reversed over his body to ensure that the little lad was dead because he didn’t want to have the expense of hospital bills.

In a rather disgusting aside the boy’s family then argued with the truck drive for five hours about the size of compensation he would pay, and if you think that is bad just think about a statement from Li Zekun the head of the Luxian county traffic police team who said that after an investigation found no evidence that the boy had been run over twice, which leads this Cat to think that it is ok to run a 5 year old over once in China.

But really all of the people involved from the Chinese officials, to the truck driver and little lads parents are just plain disgusting, what a good think that it is only a small proportion of the world who are like that, oops it happens in India too and if you combine the populations of those two countries you are getting on for half of mankind who are really quite awful, what a good job there are some nice people in the world and of course millions of Cats great and small.

I have to say honestly that I do like writing blogs and chatting with my lovely readers but, and I hate the fact that Cats can’t lie, I do have an ulterior motive I have to get lovely cuddly readers in the first place and not only of my blogs, oh no it is very important that people buy my books so that I can call them my lovely cuddly readers in the first place – you do understand that.

So if you aren’t one of my lovely cuddly readers and you want to be then all you have to do is to start clicking the links that are below, they will take you to either one of two safe places my http://www.wickedlywonderfulwebsite here www.thecatsdiary.com or good old http://www.amazon.com where you can buy as many books as you like and if you want to be merry here is a little tip I understand that you humans have a saying the more the merrier!

Here are a selection of links that will take you straight to right places in http://www.amazon.com to buy either The Cat’s Travelogue Paperback Edition or The Cat’s Travelogue ebook.

Because I love the design is the cover of my latest unputdownable book The Cat’s Travelogue, isn’t it great?

Travelogue by John Woodcock

And don’t forget you can buy either a paper edition of either or better still both of my books or an ebook format.

The Cat & Kindle

Lastly if you missed clicking on the links above here is another chance tee hee!

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=thcaswe-20&o=1&p=8&l=as1&asins=1441445609&ref=qf_sp_asin_til&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=thcaswe-20&o=1&p=8&l=as1&asins=1466357223&ref=qf_sp_asin_til&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr

Gosh that is a lot of information and I have to say it seems as though I might just come over as a bit pushy but a Cat has got to be kept in a life style he is accustomed to doesn’t he?

We all have heard the terrible news today that poor old http://www.amazon.com have seen their profits drop by 73%. Between you and me I was told (confidentially) that it’s only the sale of my books keeping the poor devils afloat, so that means that you are not only going to make a Cat very happy when you buy loads of my books but also the poor staff at http://www.amazon.com whose jobs depend on the sales of my books!

Odd Indian Road Sign – What Do They Mean?   Leave a comment

I am a very innocent, nice and extremely well brought up Cat and so when I was trolling through India researching my latest blockbusting and unputdownable book called ‘The Cat’s Travelogue’ (available here The Cat’s Travelogue Paperback Edition) I couldn’t help but be confused by the sign below.

Odd Indian Road Sign  What Do They Mean

If anyone knows what on earth the Indians are on about do let me know! Or if you can guess why two young men in skirts are following an older man in orange shorts into an Accident Porn Area I would be interested to know. My theory is that the young men are planning a Porn Accident? Well I suppose they are in the right place aren’t they!

In the meantime if you want to read my wonderful travelogue do please click here for the The Cat’s Travelogue Paperback Edition or here for the Kindle edition The Cat’s Travelogue ebook.

It’s Official My www.wickedlywonderfulwebsite Has No Equal!   2 comments

I always am curious about how my http://www.wickedlywonderfulwebsite www.thecatsdiary.com is perceived, do people like it, is it easy to find, you know the sort of thing and so when i found a site which proposed to ‘find similar sites to mine (I use that term loosely here) I was naturally interested and so like an innocent Cat I clicked the link.

Www wickedlywonderfulwebsite

Here according to the fools running the site are the sites that are similar to mine:

blakjak.demon.co.uk

craigslist.org

hotmail.com

epdrama.com

defendingthetruth.com

Now I have to ask myself what are these idiots on? I loathe gambling and presume that the first site is a card gaming one that just made me sick, then craigslist? I ask you! After craigslist Hotmail – really and I have no idea to discover what the last two sites are about which of course all goes to prove that there isn’t a website in the world or on the web to compare with my http://www.wickedlywonderfulwebsite www.thecatsdiary.com still it would have been fun to compare other sites I suppose.

But as the site proposing to offer similar sites to mine was so inaccurate I won’t even both to mention them and waste my dear cuddly reader’s time clicking and visiting, yes I am a cat that just goes on giving and I am definitely not only wonderful but also unique.

All of which goes to show that even though there are some absolutely wonderful websites on the web there are very few http://www.wickedlywonderfulwebsites www.thecatsdiary.com which has no equal for entertainment, quality, fun and of course good looking owner, although I would blush here is that is Cats could blush tee hee.

What Do The Chinese Think Of Women – Check Out The Soup!   Leave a comment

The Chinese have been described as really not very nice, they eat Dogs and Cats and recently 18 of them in Foshan city, Guandong province nonchalantly walked passed a small child who had been the victim of a hit and run, first by a van and then a car.

Just the other day two year old little Yue Yue was left writhing in agony in the middle of the road as her countrymen and women stepped around her as if she was merely street litter.

I was going to say they stepped around her as if she was Dogs poo but the stray Dogs in Foshan city are few and far between because they get rounded up for din dins, indeed there have been reports over the last two years that Guandong province diners are running out of their main dinner ingredients because they have eaten all the Dogs and Cats in the area.

So what does a nation that has so little regard for little girls think of women, well as the title says check out the soup!

A Soup Too Far

If you think that the Occupy Wall Street campaigners around the world have a point just imagine what it’s like in China where there are a few very rich and billions of poor who don’t even warrant the attention of passers by if they, like two year old Yue Yue, stray away from their the pavement for a couple of minutes unnoticed by their her mother.

The injustice and inequality that is so common in China is disgusting and has to end – please think about Yue Yue and the attitude of the Chinese to life the next time you want to buy something and if the item is made in China please, please think again about buying it I know I will.

And just before I get off my soap box and have a lie down don’t tell me that we the consumers and voters can’t do anything about China’s inhumanity, it was because of us that China was turned from a mainly agricultural backwater into a manufacturing powerhouse, in 20 or so years, because we wanted so many shiny things.

Well now the people in the towns and cities where we live could do with the jobs and that means they can’t afford their homes let alone the shiny things because they are out of work, so if you buy locally the brand names will get the message and they will bring the factories back to your country.

And you never know we might just be able to send a message to China, goodness knows our politicians won’t they are too busy groveling to them.

A Small Bottom Joke For My Americans Friends & Readers   Leave a comment

Here is a small bottom joke for my Americans friends and readers who will be shocked, horrified and disgusted to know that in the UK the same word for ‘your’ fanny means the front botty of English ladies.

Small Bottom Joke For My Americans Friends

This message is brought to you by the incredibly intelligent and good looking Cat who could go on to tell you that the word botty in Czech (which is spelt with one ‘t’) means ‘shoes’ – all of which proves that the human world is a very odd place no matter what language you’re speaking!

Found One Cat   Leave a comment

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) http://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 http://www.wickedlywonderfulwebsite store of course here www.thecatsdiary.com or from the ever reliable http://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 http://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

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=thcaswe-20&o=1&p=8&l=as1&asins=B0051VVOB2&ref=tf_til&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr

Or if you want to have a good look at other eReading machines you can simply click here Computers which will take you to http://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…
