Women: be careful who you give your business card to!

I seem to have a large number of attractive, intelligent and successful female friends in their twenties and thirties, many of whom lament the difficulties of finding suitable men.

I struggled to understand how such eligible women can find it hard to date until one of them shared this clip with me on Facebook!

I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did!

The story entitled “Why some girls stay single) (repeated below from melodymaker.posterous.com) goes like this:

The story is this:  a girl was out with friends having drinks on King St (in Toronto) when a man approaches her and won’t leave her alone -saying how cute she is. She finally gives in  and hands the guy her business card to get rid of him.

The attached  is an MP3 file of not one, but TWO voice-mails this guy left. This goes down  in the history books – especially the second voice mail.

After hearing them you can clearly see why she didn’t call him back – instead  she called in to the Z103.5 morning show & had them play this on the air.

Ladies: He is out there… 🙂

Here are the actual voicemails brilliantly re-enacted by Eric Anderson and hosted on YouTube.

Part One: Dmitriy’s first message. He’s a man who knows what he wants!

Part Two:Dmitriy’s second message. He’s getting annoyed.

Dutch car maker plans move to UK

Luxury car maker Spyker wants to move closer to its main parts supplier and chooses to relocate in Coventry.

A luxury sports car maker based in the Netherlands has announced it is moving an assembly plant to Coventry.

Spyker Cars makes up to 50 luxury cars a year, mainly for the US market, with prices starting from about £180,000.

It said up to 45 out of 135 jobs would be at risk when it moved its assembly plant from Zeewolde in Holland to Whitley in Coventry by the end of 2009.

via BBC News – Dutch car maker plans move to UK.

This is fantastic news for Britain – it is good to see foreign companies deciding to make strategic investments here in the UK – especially in our ailing automotive industry.

There are many good reasons for Britain to become – once again – an international hub for manufacturing, perhaps reducing our reliance on the Financial Services sector.
