Money….Dragon’s Roar


Dragon Oil take over?
LONDON, June 4 (Reuters) – Oil and gas explorer and producer Dragon Oil has received a preliminary offer approach, the Dubai state-controlled company said on Thursday, sending its shares up over 20 percent.

“The approach is of a preliminary nature and there can be no certainty that any offer will be made or as to the terms of any such offer, should one be forthcoming,” Dragon Oil said in a statement.  A spokeswoman for the company declined to comment further. (I think she was counting her money…….rumour that Sir Alan Sugar was also visiting Gordon Brown to gloat over his new investment is unfounded too….)

Dragon’s shares jumped to an 11-month high on the news and closed up 64.5 pence at 395 pence at 1521 GMT, valuing the company at around 2 billion pounds ($3.28 billion).

The statement comes a day after oil exploration company Heritage Oil said it was in early-stage merger talks.
The Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) owns 52 percent of Dragon, according to Reuters data.

Buy on news , sell on rumour comes to mind.  Shame I sold up ages ago at £2 a share, though will look to get back in if price goes a little lower. Doh!

wrong again!

Sir Alan makes his final cut and only Yas and Kate left for the decider – Final Sunday………who will win?

Number cruncher Yasmina or charismatic Kate?

Poor James, what a horrendous interview and last gasps “I’ve such a wealth of experience. You’re not reinventing the wheel… you just need to fix a couple of spokes.” ……..and out he wobbles with a buckle……

Design….Fluffy chick!


fluffy chick!

Eibo Jeddah, photographer on deviantart has some fresh photo’s of various shots, this caught my eye from a series he has done with some chick.

Also, grown up that chick would taste good in my McChaplin Chicken Bacon Cheese Burger if I could get around to finding it in Asda.

I hope it is a free range chicken and none of that battery stuff……….Talking of which, the McChaplin Chicken Bacon Cheese Burger recipes are now hot cakes for the BBQ season.

Will upload recipe soon and get Jamie Oliver quivering in his wellies.

The Gower Lighthouse

“Whiteford Lighthouse is located off the coast at Whiteford Point near Whiteford Sands, on the Gower peninsula, South Wales.

It is the only remaining cast iron lighthouse surrounded by the sea in the United Kingdom.

It was built in 1865. The tower is 61ft high and made up of eight courses of cast iron plates. The light was extingushed in 1921. In 1982, a new solar lamp was installed. The harbours of Burry Port and Llanelli, which the lighthouse serves are now hardly used.”

Enough of the history lesson, Keri aka Funkysuite an inspiring developer from good old Swanny spends his spare time taking shots of the glorious Gower peninsular, Swansea City and various places he visits –  there’s some seriously good shots on his Flickr account, unfortunately there’s no naked chicks nor glamour modeling involved in his portfolio and in this side of the world the views more than make up for it.

Hell, grab a desktop background while your at it by right mouse clicking an image you like.  It’s not stealing after all!

Design….funky shoes


wave shoes

Went to the beach with my black sharpies and new daps – hence some wave patterns going on! Hottest day of the year so far has given me nothing but a pink lobster look to compliment my pasty chicken legs.

Already had a few queries regarding some similar razzle dazzle wave styles as a tatoo……but I have not tried tatooing…..could be interesting… this post
