Tuesday night, after the night shift nurses in the Hospice had dimmed the lights so everyone could settle in for the night, and after everyone left his side, my Uncle Joe quietly passed away.
I never really got why folks were so impatient with Joe. A lot of folks thought he was stupid - retarded was not an uncommon description.
It’s that time of year again, the first week of November.
There’s a chill in the air and men across the land are starting to grow a lower brow, a cookie duster, a bro-mo . . . a moustache.
These men are not trying to dodge winter’s wrath by sporting a lip sweater. No, no. These are manly men united in their upper lipholstery to raise awareness and money for men’s health.
If you did miss any of this sites previous updates, the new blog for the Stufforium will be hosted at https://www.stufforum.com/blog
This blog may turn into a new project at some point, or it may be left as an archive for the Stuff! projects blog posts.
The power of a penny (POP!)
One thing that, due to some unfortunate errors within this blog that I was unable to continue as hopped was the POP (Power of a penny) campaign. I never got to thank the last penny donations before this blog became inactive, so I know its very late, but as posting on this blog is fine once again, here’s my thanks to the last of POP:
Many thanks to: Isabelle Smith and Ann Stuart
You donations were passed on to the Bedrock charity.
Interested in taking part in POP? Well. the campaign will be starting up again on the Stufforium blog soon! Thanks, lets help show how even just a penny can so quickly add up, especially with the more who get behind it, to make a difference for many causes around the world.
Lastly, other features that began in this blog as a Stuff! project will be carried on to the new Stufforium blog, features such as the round up of five great singers, that started with Laura Broad and will continue with choice number two. As the features are continued over on the Stufforium blog, we will recap what’s gone on here to help avoid confusion.
As always, let us know all your feedback, and please come and join me over on the Stufforium blog:
Catch you soon, hope you have a great week
Hi. Their has been a slight change of plan on the StuffBlogged front. If you look a few posts down you may see where it was mentioned that StuffBlogged would be moving over to wordpress.org and evolving into a new blog. This will still be happening soon. Also all the competitions and other features mentioned that were set to take part at a certain date still will, just at different dates until the new blog is set up. Sorry about that, it’s just due to a delay in getting the new blog going.
But thinking on this very blog, I decided not to finish this blog for good. All the kind of articles -and more -that were posted on this blog will appear on the new StuffBlogged once its up and running. I thought I’d keep this blog going though to use for a couple of reasons.
Firstly, this blog will serve as a way of letting you know what’s going on in the world of Stuff!
I’ll let you know details of the new StuffShop, that’s on its way, tell you about whats happening with all of Stuff!‘s existing sites-as well as new ones on their way. So it will become the Stuff! blog about Stuff!
I’ll still post a couple of articles like I used to on here every so often-so as other the next couple of weeks before the new StuffBlogged launches.
Right that’s that update sorted, now a quick word in the next post, about StuffShop and how you can win a £10 Argos voucher.
Hope you are all good today. This post is the last post before StuffBlogged moves over to it’s new domain, but one more post will follow to let you know on here, where the new domain will feature.
As my last post on here, I wanted to recommend David Bowie’s new one, that’s the new the single ‘Where are we now?’. If you haven’t yet heard it, give it a listen below. It’s a great return for David Bowie fans, it’s a brilliant track.
Where are we now, eh? That’s a little apt for this blog, too. I’ll get back to you, next post with the ‘where are we now’ on StuffBlogged, for those that want to follow us to the new blog.
