I've had to make one of the most difficult decisions of my life this morning...

I had to take our Jack Russell to the vets, I could see it in his eyes, when I picked him up, that he knew it was time.

As I walked into the vets I held him close to my chest, his little eyes looking up at me, I didn't want to have to do it, but it was the only option.

With a heavy heart I passed him to the vet, he asked:"Are you sure you want to do this?"

"Yes", I said," Cut his tail off, the mother in law is coming round this afternoon, I don't want anything in the house to make her think shes welcome."

A guy calls a company and orders their 5-day, 10 lb. weight loss program. The next day, there's a knock on the door and there stands before him a voluptuous, athletic, 25 year dressed in nothing but a pair of Nike running shoes and a sign round her neck. She introduces herself as a representative of the weight loss company. The sign reads, "If you can catch me, you can have me."

Without a second thought, he takes off after her. A few miles later, huffing and puffing, he finally catches her and has his way with her. The same girl shows up for the next four days and the same thing happens. On the fifth day, he weighs himself and is delighted to find he has lost 10 lb. as promised. He then calls the company and orders their 5-day, 20 lb. program.

The next day there's a knock at the door and there stands the most stunning, beautiful, sexy woman he has ever seen in his life. She is wearing nothing but Reebok running shoes and a sign around her neck that reads, "If you can catch me you can have me."

Well, he's out the door after her like a shot! This girl is in excellent shape and it takes him quite a while to catch her but when he does, it's definitely worth every muscle cramp and wheeze. So for the next four days the same routine happens. Much to his delight, on the fifth day he weighs himself only to discover that he has lost another 20 lb. as promised.

He decides to go for broke and calls the company to order the 7-day 50 lb. program. "Are you sure?" asks the representative on the phone. "This is our most rigorous program."

"Absolutely," he replies, "I haven't felt this good in years."

The next day there's a knock at the door and when he opens it he finds this huge, muscular, 7ft man standing there wearing nothing but pink running shoes and a sign around his neck that reads, "I'm Francis. If I catch you, you're mine..."

Grandpa and his grandson were in the backyard digging worms to go fishing,
when finally, the grandson saw a worm sticking about halfway out of a hole.
The grandson grabbed hold of the worm and pulled it out the rest of the

Grandpa said, "I'll bet you £1.00 you can't put that worm back in
the hole." The grandson thought about it for a moment, then turned and ran
into the house. Soon he came back out with a can of hairspray, thoroughly
coated the worm, making it stiff as a board, then gently slid the worm back
into the hole. Grandpa shrugged and handed him a £1.00 coin.

The next morning, the grandson was sitting on the front porch when
Grandpa came out of the house and held out another £1.00 coin and said,
"Here's £1.00 son." The grandson said, "But grandpa, you already gave me
£1.00 for the bet." Grandpa said, "I know, but this one is from grandma."

On their honeymoon, the new husband told his bride, "I have a confession to make that I should have made before, but I was concerned that it might affect our relationship.

"What is it?" his new bride asked lovingly.

"I'm a golf fanatic," he said. "I think about golf constantly. I'll be out on the golf course every weekend, every holiday, and every chance I get. If it comes to a choice between your wishes and golf, golf will always win."

His new bride pondered this for a moment and said, "I thank you for your honesty. Now in the same spirit of honesty, I should tell you that I've concealed something about my own past that you should know about. The truth is, "I'm a hooker."

"No problem," said her husband, "just widen your stance a little, and overlap your grip, and that should clear it right up."

Comet Ison seems to have been destroyed in its encounter with the Sun.

Telescopes saw the giant ball of ice and dust disappear behind the star, but then fail to emerge as expected.

Astronomers continue to search for the object, but it is almost certain the much vaunted "Comet of the Century" has gone out with a whimper.

Despite its great size, Ison was probably torn apart in the immense heat and tidal forces so close to the Sun.

Prof Tim O'Brien, associate director of Jodrell Bank, UK, said: "The nucleus has gone very faint, which you wouldn't expect.

"We can't be sure - but it's not looking good. We'll have to keep watching."

Ison had captivated skywatchers with its promise all year.

A "fresh" object flung in towards the inner Solar System from its home far beyond the outer planet Neptune, it was hoped it might produce a brilliant tail that would arc across the night sky, perhaps for weeks.

And, as it got closer and closer to the Sun, its ices did indeed begin to vaporise, releasing dust that shimmered in a distinctive trailing stream.

But from early on, it was clear Ison was unlikely to be spectacular; it was just not brightening as predicted.

This led scientists to fear for its survival when it eventually grazed past the star at a distance of 1.2 million km at 18:35 GMT on Thursday.

The European and and US space agencies' Sun-watching Soho satellite observed Ison approach, and sweep, behind the Sun, but then fail to come back around. Minutes after the comet should have reappeared, the Soho images showed nothing.

Passing close to the Sun, Ison would have been subjected to temperatures up to abut 2,000C. And the immense gravity of the star would also have pulled and squeezed on the object as it tumbled end of end.

The evidence in telescopic images suggests this was all too much, and Ison's nucleus simply fell apart.

Ah well..
