Camping in South of France or Spain?
Planning a camping holiday for August 2009. Will be travelling down to Narbonne on the Motorail. 2 Adults, 4 Children.
Any advice on whether France or Spain. Speak both languages equally well.
France has a lot more quiet and secluded camp sites than Spain. My knowledge of Spanish camping grounds is that they have good facilitites and are clean and user friendly. They can be a bit rowdy (thanks UK tourists). French camp sites are equally good, but it is a lot easier to find peace and quiet and on the whole, there is less mis-behaviour from UK tourists as their average age is higher and the site owners are a lot less tolerant of bad behaviour
2010 FIFA…Remembering a Decade…2009 Barcelona are HexaCampions!!!?
What a decade it was for 2000′s…war, global warming, dying economy, faster internet, cell phones, Britney and Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Brangelina, TomKat, Spiderman 3, ipods and iphones, Minis and smart cars, Bush and Obama, AIG, Enron, Microsoft v Apple, Pope John Paul III is out and Benedict is in, Afghanistan and Iraq, pirates in Somalia, Pirates of the Carribean, swine flu, facebook, youtube and let’s not forget…Yahoo Answers!!!
But let’s ponder on the world’s greatest sport in this decade, France and Euro 2008, Bayern 2001, the finale of the Galacticos, Brazil’s World Cup in 2002, Beckham sadly a world icon, Milan wins shootout, 2004…Mourinho to Ronaldinho, Lucky Greece, Lucky Liverpool, beautiful Barcelona, Italy campione del mondo 2006, Milan get revenge, rise of Messi and CRonaldo, EPL best in 2007-08, oh the drama in Moscow…
But none of that was comparable to 2008-2009 Barcelona!!!
Yes they are the greatest team of all time.
It’s the start of the 08-09 La Liga, new manager Pep Guardiola is now in charge. Ronaldinho, Zambrotta, Giovani and Deco are gone, but Daniel Alves and Hleb come in. Doesn’t seem so great from here for Barcelona, especially when they lose the first game to Numancia and draw the next game vs Racing Santander. But the CL was different, their first game against Sporting Lisbon was easy, a 3-1 victory, first of the season. Then Barcelona destroy Sporting Gijon 6-1, destroy Atletico 6-0, Almeria 5-0, Basel 5-0, Sporting again 5-2, Valencia 4-0. It was time to prove themselves vs Real Madrid, and Barcelona wins 2-0, they are on top of La Liga, on top of the world.
It’s 2009 now, they haven’t lost a game since Numancia until they lose to Espanyol. In the Round of 16, they face Lyon, but after coming from a loss, they only manage for a 1-1 draw, but not as bad because it’s an away goal. Sadly Barcelona lose again to Atletico 3-4, but it was still a great match. They beat Lyon 4-0 at Camp Nou, and cruise through Bayern 4-0 at Camp Nou, meanwhile destroying Deportivo 5-0 and Malaga 6-0. Messi is the best in the world since this season started.
But here comes trouble, Chelsea FC, who stopped the Barcelona attack and held them 0-0 at Camp Nou, putting pressure on Barcelona to get away goals. Meanwhile, Barcelona travel to Madrid for El Clasico at the Santiago Bernebeu. Though Higuain scores first for Real Madrid, Henry and Puyol quickly strike back, and for Real Madrid it’s downhill. The final score, 6-2, goals from Messi, Xavi and Pique. It would be Barcelona’s last win in La Liga, but it basically gave Barcelona the La Liga title for 2008-09, 1/3 trophies were completed.
At Stamford Bridge, it’s May 6, Essien scores a brilliant volley, Chelsea had the lead almost the entire game. But magically (also credit to Tom Ovrebo), Andres Iniesta gets the pass from Messi and nails it in the top right corner. Iniesta and Barcelona celebrate at Stamford Bridge, even with 10 men. No matter what conspiracy “helped” Barcelona, Iniesta was pure magic, unearthly.
After cruising through the Copa del Rey, Barcelona face Athletic Bilbao at the Mestalla in Valencia. Toquero scores first for Bilbao, but after Yaya Toure makes a brilliant goal, it’s all level. Messi then lifts Barcelona 1 up in the 54th. Bojan then hits the nail on the coffin 3 minutes later, 4-1 would be the score, 2/3 trophies for Barcelona.
It’s May 27th, and what a venue to hold the Champions League Final, Barcelona vs Manchester United, two of the best teams in the world going at it Gladiator style (jk). La Liga v EPL, Messi v CRonaldo, Super Attack v Super Defence, there’s a myth that you can’t win a championship by playing beautiful, can Barcelona break it? Yes they did. After Manchester United controlled the first 10 minutes, Iniesta gives it to Eto’o, he shoots and scores for Barcelona, they are 1 up after 10 minutes. The game is still alive, but can Barcelona do more? Yes they can, Xavi curls a cross to Messi, in his new electric blue F50i’s, and goes airbourne, he heads it to the right corner of the net and Barcelona are up by 2, 20 minutes from completing a treble. 20 minutes later, Massimo Bussacca blows the whistle and Barcelona are 3/3, Tri-Campions. Barcelona make history and become the first Spanish club to win a treble. Can you believe that Real Madrid never won 3 trophies in one season, even with all the superstars they had. And can you believe that Pep Guardiola, a new manager, would lead Barcelona to so much success? I didn’t, but it happened!!!
What else is there to prove??? Well a lot actually. After Eto’o, Gudjohnsen, Hleb and Sylvinho leave, Ibrahimovic, Maxwell, Chygrynsky, and a bunch of youth players (Gai, Muniesa, Jonathan, Thiago) come in. Barcelona are now in the Supercopa against Bilbao, and though de Marcos gives Bilbao the lead before the half, Xavi and Pedro score, and Barcelona win the first leg away 2-1.
A great team definetly, one of the greatest of all time. But the greatest of the greatest? I know being Hexacampeon is a big achievement, but a majority of the teams beaten to win about 3 or 4 of these cups weren’t exactly world class. Now if this era of Barca can win 5 consecutive CL’s (which Real achieved) then I will admit this Barca is the greatest of all time. Until then I’m not too sure.
New Re-Make of Friday the 13th?!?
Whitney (Amanda Righetti), Clay (Jared Padalecki), Mike (Nick Mennell), Jenna (Danielle Panabaker), Trent (Travis VanWinkle) and other young adults end up exploring the old Camp Crystal Lake (made famous by the original 1980 film).

To answer your question.. Hell YEAH there is.
Best thing you could ever hope to do is get your friends involved and dress up like Jason using a movie accurate Jason mask availible from the site linked below.
The masks come from the original molds used to make the masks for Part 3 thru 7, and are cast by the same guy who made the molds and ran the masks in the first place.
Some of the artists on the site are even doing Part 12 paintjobs on them.
If I helped you, then you gotta’ help me
Sign into the forums where you get the masks from, and put a post on the thread I’ve linked to here.. Just type “New Poster referred by Deadguy”. Please?

Writer – October 2010 – Present
I am employed by ****** to write articles for *****. The articles are on a very wide range of topics, and it is my responsibility to research and write the articles before the appointed deadline. I have also done some basic admin work for *****, and have helped her with submitting the articles to various websites and social media sites.
The **** Café – March 2010 – June 2010
I enjoyed working as a team member in a busy café, frequently under pressure. Responsibilities included waitressing, serving behind the food counter, basic food preparation and cleaning.
IT Experience – I am conversant with Microsoft Word and Excel, and the internet.
I have taught myself to paint, and received a commission to paint the Berlin Holocaust memorial. I completed the painting before the deadline and sold it on 20/11/09. I also paint portraits and copy masterpieces.
I enjoy music and sing in *****s choir. We sing at weddings and perform in concerts. I also took part in making a choral recording with my family.
In August 2009 I went on a hiking and camping trip along the west highland way, and in June 2011 I am joining a group in France to walk for three days from Paris to Chartres.
I have helped to organize and run children’s activities at several weekend retreats.
Thats it. I could put more about what I enjoy, but is it really relevant? and do I need to put all the little jobs Ive done like babysitting and dog walking, or are these irrelevant also?
Id love to know what you think!
You have a lot of information in your CVs and needs some refining. Do you know over 90% of the applicants drop off at the CV screening stage. So, it’s very important that you make your CV as attractive as possible with concise, concrete and relevant information. You also need to give attention to formatting.
Here are few tips.
1) Keep your personal details. Hopefully, you’ve one in your original document.
2) Instead of what you’ve written as “Personal Profile,” in my opinion, change that to objectives and find a good suitable one that matches what you are seeking for. “Enthusiastic, ambitious and highly organised hospitality professional looking looking for jobs in cafe’s, shops and restaurants to best utilize the knowledge gained,” can be an example. You can modify it as it applies to you.
3) You’ve used lots of ‘I.” It looks bit unprofessional as CV/resume itself is a document that describes you and only you. You can avoid using ‘I’ and shorten the sentence to give concise and clear information. As for example,
Writer – October 2010 – Present
Name of the Company
* Research and Article writing, written articles in various topics
* Article submission in various websites and social media sites
* Maintained deadlines
* Basic Admin work such as _____________
* Good team player and maintained good team spirit, helped colleagues in _________
4. I don’t think you need to include what you are going to do in future in your resume. You can skip that one for now. If somebody sees you’ll be engaged, there is less chance of being hired. It is important though that you mention during your interview only the interviewer asks you specifically. Otherwise, you can leave this topic.
5. Include any points that is relevant to the job you are applying for. You can drop unnecessary things but make sure that you don’t have large gaps in employment history. Other things you can customize according to the job description.
Hopefully, it will help your resume look better and bring in some good news soon.
Good luck with your job hunting!!
