Holi, the Hindu festival celebrating the arrival of spring and the vanquishing of evil by good, dark by light, falls today this year

the festival is a riot of colour as family, friends, neighbours, and strangers douse one another with coloured powders and water

everyone joins in the fun – even these kids !

p.s. I posted this vid during holi last year but think it worth showing again

Holi

by duncanr

The weather, at long last, seems to have turned in the UK and I was able to give my grass the 1st cut of the year on Saturday – as did my neighbour, too

Hindus have a more colourful way of marking the arrival of Spring than mowing the lawn

During Holi, friends and strangers daub each other with colour. You’ll find plenty of images on Google or videos on youtube showing the exuberant celebration that is Holi. But today, I want to share with you this video of some kids joining in the fun

yellow roseA word to the wise guys

It’s valentine’s Day on the 14th and your woman will be expecting (at the very least) some flowers. Roses are the traditional flower associated with this occasion but be careful about the colour!

Of course chances are your woman won’t know the Floral Code but in case she does, FFS don’t give her a bluidy yellow rose – the friggin thing says you just want to be friends 🙄

Whiten Your Vagina

by duncanr

White women pay a lot of money to turn their skin brown – thinking it more attractive that colour

On the other hand, brown women pay a lot of money to try and make their skin pale – thinking it more attractive that colour

Funny old world, innit ?

Now I may be a freak, but . . .

Red in Bed a No-No

What colour of female genitals do men prefer?

That’s the question Sarah Johns, an anthropologist at the University of Kent, sought the answer to

Starting with the premise that men find women wearing red clothing, or red lipstick sexy and that there may be an evolutionary basis for this preference because in some primate species the female signals her readiness to mate by her red arse, she pulled some non-pornographic pics from a website to which women submit anonymous photos of their vulvas and . . .
