Hello. I'm looking to speak to people who have made the decision to leave the UK and move abroad for a potential documentary. At the moment it is just in the research phase so I'm just looking to talk to some people and find out more about the reasons they might move.  Thanks and all the best,  Ellie Gibbs ellie.gibbs@libertybell.tv    020 7598 7209

Here's a tip for those of you in Rio de Janeiro who are looking for event staff for your family party or corporate event. I had a meeting today with ms Debora Sansão from "Splendid Brasil", who are specialized in supplying staff (waiters, bartenders etc...)  for any event from a private dinner party to a gala ball. Especially if your Portuguese isn't that good, don't worry, Debora is Brazilian but speaks perfect English. You can contact her on (21) 3958 7200.  Hope this was helpful

A yuppie was opening the door of his BMW when a car came along and hit the door, ripping it off completely. When the police arrived at the scene, the yuppie complained bitterly about the damage to his car.  "Officer, look what they've done to my Beemer!"  "You yuppies are so materialistic, it's ridiculous" retorted the officer. "You're so worried about your stupid BMW, you didn't even notice that your left arm was ripped off."  "Oh, my God!" screamed the yuppie, noticing the bloody stump where his arm used to be. "My Rolex!" Cheers

New Mercedes A man bought a new Mercedes to celebrate his wife leaving him and was out on the interstate for a nice evening drive. The top was down, the breeze was blowing through what was left of his hair and he decided to open her up. As the needle jumped up to 80 mph, he suddenly saw flashing red and blue lights behind him. "There's no way they can catch a Mercedes," he thought to himself and opened her up further. The needle hit 90, 100..... Then the reality of the situation hit him. "What am I doing?" he thought and pulled over. The cop came up to him, took his license without a word and examined it and the car. "It's been a long hard day, this is the end of my shift and it's Friday the 13th. I don't feel like more paperwork, I don't need the frustration or the overtime, so if you can give me a really good excuse for your driving that I haven't heard before, you can go." The guy thinks about it for a second and says, "Last week my wife ran off with a cop. I was afraid you were trying to give her back!" "Have a nice weekend," said the officer.  Be careful people ;-) Have a great weekend

Here's one I heard the other day...  A blonde, a redhead, and a brunette were all lost in the desert. They found a lamp and rubbed it. A genie popped out and granted them each one wish. The redhead wished to be back home. Poof! She was back home. The brunette wished to be at home with her family. Poof! She was back home with her family. The blonde said, "Awwww, I wish my friends were here." ...  And POOFF...   x-D Enjoy your day people :)

Four expectant fathers pace in a hospital waiting room while their wives are in labor. The nurse enters and tells the first man, "Congratulations, you're the father of twins." "What a coincidence," the man says. "I work for the Minnesota Twins baseball team." A little later, the nurse returns and tells the second man, "You are the father of triplets." "That's really an incredible coincidence," he answers. "I work for the 3M Corporation." An hour later, the nurse tells the third man that his wife has just given birth to quadruplets. The man says, "I don't believe it! I work for the Four Seasons. What a coincidence!" After hearing this, everyone's attention turns to the fourth guy, who has just fainted. He slowly regains consciousness and whispers, "I should have never taken that job at Millennium Computers." :-) Have a great weekend!!

Hi all,  Ever since I got here, I heard a lot of talk about the baile funk in the favelas, but I have never been to one...  I found out that there's one at Circo Voador in Lapa tonight but I guess that one will not have the same "atmosphere" as the ones in the favela. Is it worth a try or not?

Thunderstorm: One summer evening during a violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her small boy into bed. She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, "Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight?" The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. "I can't dear," she said. "I have to sleep in Daddy's room." A long silence was broken at last by a shaken little voice saying, "What a big sissy."   Have a good one

A police officer pulls over a car and informs the driver that he has just won $5,000 in a safety competition, all because he is wearing his seat belt. "What are you going to do with the prize money?" the officer asks. The driver responds, "I guess I'll go to driving school and get my license." His wife, who is in the passenger's seat says, "Officer, don't listen to him. He always says stupid things when he's drunk." The guy in the back seat pops up out from under the blanket and says, "I knew we wouldn't get far in this stolen car." Just then a knock comes from the trunk and a voice calls out, "Are we over the border yet?"   Have a good one all...

This section is called "Entertainment" so I thought I would post a little joke here:  At school during a math class, Teacher: "Imagine there are 5 birds on a fence. You shoot one. How many birds are left?" After a few seconds of silence, one boy replies: "None!" Teacher: "None? How do you figure that?" Boy: "well, if I shoot one, all the other birds will fly away, leaving none on the fence." Teacher: "Hmm, not exactly, but I do like the way you think!" Boy: "Teacher, let me ask you a question. There are 3 women sitting on a park bench eating ice cream cones. One is licking her cone, another is biting it and the third one is sucking it. How can you tell which one of the women is married?" The teacher has to think for a while, then replies, "Well, I guess the one sucking her cone." Boy: "Actually, its the one with the wedding ring, but I do like the way YOU think!" :-) Have a great day!

I need some advise here... I would love to try this hanggliding but nver done anything like that before. It looks pretty scary but also a great thrill.  I read about a couple of acidents with these so it looks that it is not 100% safe.  Anybody has a recommendation? which company is good and reliable?
