Thank you to all those who helped us reach our 1st donation milestone of £200! As Jim was top of the Banana Ballot vote (good choice!)  he was summoned for Task 1: The Yellow Smoothie… Poor Jim endured the lethal cocktail of a full jar of piccalilli, a tin of sweetcorn, 2 bananas, a full jar of mustard, a tin of pineapple chunks, half a bag of grated cheese, the juice of 3 lemons, 1 whole lemon (skin ‘n all), and a little ‘something extra’ (make sure you watch to the very end!) This was all blitzed to perfection and ingested with deserved reservation… Enjoy the video – you helped make it happen!

Although the voting is now closed… PLEASE KEEP DONATING.
It’s for a great cause www.justgiving.co.uk/BLOGDIRgoyellow

It’s that time of year again, when we at DNA humiliate ourselves in silly outfits in an attempt to raise money for Rowcroft Hospice.  For this year’s ‘Go Yellow’ day (March 31st) we are going to be performing a series of challenges IF we reach various levels of donations. Our tasks are likely to be uncomfortable, embarrassing or frankly ridiculous – your job is rather simple…

Pledge at our ‘Just Giving’ page here and make sure that we reach the donations required for us to make fools of ourselves. We’re determined not to be branded as Yellow Bellies so after we’ve endured a task we’ll be uploading hard proof ? pictures or video updates ? on the Go Yellow blog page… Be sure to check back often. The final £1000 Challenge will take place on ‘Go Yellow’ day itself and is certain to be quite the feat. Stay tuned for challenge updates!

Come on, let’s beat the £700 raised by us last year! – Visit: www.justgiving.co.uk/BLOGDIRgoyellow

See our ‘Go Yellow for Rowcroft’ archive to see what we got up to last year.

The Rancher

Ok, it’s not exactly design-related, but…

A successful rancher died and left everything to his devoted wife. She was a very good-looking woman and determined to keep the ranch, but knew very little about ranching, so she decided to place an ad in the newspaper for a ranch hand.

Two cowboys applied for the job. One was gay and the other a drunk.

She thought long and hard about it and, when no one else applied, she decided to hire the gay guy, figuring it would be safer to have him around the house than the drunk.

He proved to be a hard worker, who put in long hours every day and knew a lot about ranching.

For weeks, the two of them worked, and the ranch was doing very well. Then one day, the rancher’s widow said to the hired hand, ‘You have done a really good job, and the ranch looks great. You should go into town and kick up your heels.’ The hired hand readily agreed and went into town the following Saturday night.

One o’clock came, however, and he didn’t return. Two o’clock and no hired hand.  Finally he returned around two-thirty, and upon entering the room, he found the rancher’s widow sitting by the fireplace with a glass of wine, waiting for him. She quietly called him over to her.

‘Unbutton my blouse and take it off, she said softly. Trembling, he did as she directed. ‘Now take off my boots.’ He did as she asked, ever so slowly.

‘Now take off my socks.’ He removed each gently and placed them neatly by her boots.

‘Now take off my skirt.’ He slowly unbuttoned it, constantly watching her eyes in the fire light.

‘Now take off my bra.’

Again, with trembling hands, he did as he was told and dropped it to the floor. Then she looked at him and said, ‘If you ever wear my clothes into town again, you’re fired.’

Did you see that coming? How you write something can make all the difference… Jim G

Bored at work?

Then give this a try…
1. Kill a few flies.
2. Place them in the sun to dry for one hour.
3. Once they are dry, pick a pencil and paper… Let your imagination flow.
