Every Cloud has a Silver Lining

[This post is inspired by EC Stilson's blog fest. Click here for her blog and here for her site.

WARNING: This is not a happy post, though it does have a somewhat happy ending. While I've toned down the  more gruesome details of my grandfathers death, for some it will still make hard reading while for others it may strike an uncomfortable chord. There is talk of alcoholism and recovery so if these are not topics that interest you, I humbly suggest that you skip this post.]

This is the story of how my grandfather saved my life 

It is universally agreed upon that my Grandfather was not a nice man; he had a vicious, unpredictable temper, he hit his children, offended many people including close relatives, disowned his son when he came out as gay and when my granddad died, his only friend was the bottle of whisky that caused his death.

The Great Richard Armitage Championship 2011

Well folks,this is it, round five, AKA,

The Final!

Sadly we said goodbye to John Standring and Lucas North in Round 4 and now we have a face off between Harry Kennedy and John Thornton.

Thornton was always a sure thing but for Harry to make it this far is somewhat unexpected.

So here we have it, the battle of the perfect men.

Voting closes Saturday the 19th of November

And the winner is...
Well done, Mr Thornton!

Josh Likeness

Angela on Twitter sent this to me as a good likeness to Josh (from Past Due and Half Past) and I couldn't agree more so I'm sharing it with all of you. I'm suddenkly wondering how Frankie could resist him at all to be honest! ;)

Unfortunately I don't know who made it, it came from a friend of a friend who found it on Google. Please comment if you know who this belongs so that I can credit them.

What do you think, does it match your vision of Josh?

Edit: This is called The Master, by Liquoricelolly. Thanks to Jonia for the info.
