Job Hunt continues….
have been to the job centre who were rather disinterested and registered with a couple of agencies but no luck as yet…
I spend far too much time scouring the web in hope of a lucky break – you never know
good job I had a job during term-time or I'd be even more desparate

Phew… am home now – have had a ferw very busy days – but finally some time to relax.
Went to see Red Hot Chilli Peppers in Cardiff on Wednesday night, along with 63,000 other people – it was an incredible atmosphere and a great performance. I've waited a long time to see them and although I am not too keen on their more recent stuff it was still well worthwhile and a brilliant night.

Just finished watching the Sweden Italy game. Is it just me or do all of the 'big' teams have some sort of attitude/mentality problem…
Italy – born to defend
Spain – chokers
England – born to lose
France – complacent

Beres is one of my favourite ever artists – and this compilation is a great introduction.
If you like reggae and haven't heard this dude then check it out now!
He's very laid back, very cool and he has an unforgettable voice.
At a time when slack Dancehall is taking over this guy shows how it should be done. Mixes lovers, light dancehall riddims, roots and soul to create a unique style.
My personal favourites are – They're Gonna Talk, Rockaway and Sweet Lies – although with such a large back catalogue to choose from every track here is a classic.
you can pick it up off some places for around 12ish quid and with 2Cds thats a bargain
can't wait to see him live

Just made Natal Red Kidney Bean Chilli for dinner – went remarkably well – was very nice…
wish I had more money to buy nicer food though
its good book loads of recipes from around the world – comprehensive
covers recipes and ingredients from India, Britain, the Caribbean, Africa – just about everywhere really
good pictures and clear instructions too

In fact I hate a lot of stuff especially the American hip-hop that we get in the charts – eg. Jay Z, 50 Cent etc.
But anyway this was excellent a talented, intelligent bloke rapping about relevant stuff – not just how many bitches or bimmas he's got like a lot of them seem to.
There's a video of his on Launch if anyone cares – the videos crap but the songs really good.
