National Fruit Cocktail Day Weekend Share #185

It is also the end of Ramadan, Eid Mubarak to all celebrate it, but its National Fruit Cocktail day and its never a party without a cocktail. Or if you prefer I make a mean Mocktail. My problem was my favourite cocktail is a Bloody Mary, but after careful consideration and a chat with both cats, we decided that a tomato is a fruit so it counts.

If you have never done this before, give it a go, you lose maybe 30 seconds of your life adding a link and you never know who might see it, I will, my mum probably will, so its well worth it.

As everything is life there are rules, if you are new or just need reminding here they are

Rules are very simple,

  1. You can share up to five links
  2. They can be a post, your blog, someone elses post or blog
  3. You can comment on here from now till 11.30pm on Friday evening (GMT time)
  4. I shall start sharing on Saturday till 11.30pm Sunday (GMT time)
  5. It can be anything you want, however I will have final say if I think its is classed as an ism (racism, sexism etc)

Suggestions for you:

If you do share something, make sure you go back to check if anyone has left a comment for you.

If you are busy at the weekend but still want to join in, you can email me itsgoodtobecrazy@outlook.com and I will try and put your links in.

If you would like to tweet, share, or reblog and get more people involved then go for it. Otherwise don’t be shy, you have nothing to lose by sharing something.

So if you have a post that you want more exposure, or maybe even your blog. Maybe you have seen someone elses post and thought I need to get that out, then share it. Its all a good giggle.

Just to add on this, don’t worry if you don’t follow me, just add a link, I love reading new blogs, you will still get approved (as long as you have followed the rules) and then reblogged, so if you have taken a look at my blog and thought, not something I am interested, well you are weird, but thats your choice, but your blog or link might interest another one of my followers.

Weekend catch up

I had a really good weekend all in all, on Saturday, our farmers market came back, Monkey loves this place, he has two favourite stalls, the hotdog place and the homemade (very expensive) Cupcakes.

I knew it was going to be busy, so I was not looking forward to it. And it was, my partner is working in town center near to the market, so I timed it as well as I could to when he finished work but that so Monkey could still get his hotdog.

It took a shitload out of me, so on Sunday, I took the day off, Monkey and my partner spent the day playing games and watching star wars films, while I wondered in and out and caught up on emails and did those little things that I have put off this week, however I still need to sort out Monkey’s clothes.

Monkey would come in and tell me about the film they were watching (I was not watching in because I cant stand star wars) then he helped me cook a sunday roast.

It was a good weekend, but we still got very little done, hopefully next weekend. Maybe.

Where in the World: Bahrain

This week was Western Asia, I did much better than I thought I would and only missed off four countries which were 1. Lebanon 2. Bahrain 3. Kuwait 4. Qatar

All four countries have visited my blog at least once, so lets go with the first alphabetically, which is Bahrain, I know very little about this country so lets see what we can learn

credit to worldatlas.com
  1. First thing I have just learn is its an island, actually the island nation comprises a small archipelago made up of 70 natural islands and an additional 33 artificial islands. Its connected to the mainland via a bridge to Saudi Arabia
  2. It is the 3rd smallest country is Asia and the smallest sovereign state in the middle east
  3. Its the biggest per-capita consumer of electricity in Asia
  4. There are more than 100,000 Dilmun-era burial mounds most of them constructed between 2200 and 1750 BCE
  5. Bahrain is home to the Tree of Life, a single mesquite tree planted around 1583 in the southern desert. It is still unclear what sustains the tree as there are no obvious water sources nearby
  6. Bahrain’s name comes from the Arabic term al-bahrayn, which means “two seas.”
  7.  Bahrain has the world’s largest underwater theme park, it has a 70m fully submerged Boeing 747 jumbo jet aeroplane.
  8. Its languages are Arabic, English, Farsi, Urdu
  9. Bahrain is one of the few countries in the Middle East in which women have the right to vote and vie for elective positions
  10. Some of the traditional music in Bahrain is known as Sawt music

There you go, lets hope I don’t forget about this country again

If you want a go at this challange, then click here to see where we are next week

Where in the World: Western Asia

This week we have come to western Asia, I am going to say that my knowledge of Asia is roughly in the same level of Africa, maybe a little less, so this should be very embarressing

19 countries in all, lets see what I know off the top of my head

Straight off I am going to say 1. Palastine 2. Israel, I think I am going to have to look at my map to see what it covers as I am uncertain if any of the countries might be considered as Easterm Asia, or Europe.

3. Turkey 4. Cyrpus 5. Jordan 6. UAE 7. Iraq 8. Syria 9. Saudia Aribia 10. Yeman 11. Iran 12. Oman? 13. Georgia 14. Azaberjan (sorry about the spelling) 15. Armenia

I am pretty thrilled with that, although I will say Eurovision has once again helped, especially with those last 3

So which four did I miss out 1. Lebanon 2. Bahrain 3. Kuwait 4. Qatar

Lets place the ones I did get right

  1. Cyprus 11.Iraq
  2. N 12. Saudia Arabia
  3. Palastein 13.
  4. Israel 14. Oman
  5. Armenia 15.
  6. Turkey 16. UAE
  7. Jordan 17.
  8. Georgia 18. Yenman
  9. Azaberjan 19. Iran
  10. Syria

How did I do?

This is really very exciting out of the 15 I could name I only got 6 in the wrong place, which were Armenia, Jordan, Georgia, Azaberjan, Syria and Oman so all in all 47% which considering I didn’t think I knew any of them is pretty good.

Next week, Is the rest of Asia. 32 countries in all. Here is the map if you want to join in, Just one rule don’t google
