The Storyline

Arthur Christmas reveals the incredible, never-before seen answer to every child's question: 'So how does Santa deliver all those presents in one night?' The answer: Santa's exhilarating, ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole. But at the center of the film is a story about a family in a state of comic dysfunction and an unlikely hero, Arthur, with an urgent mission that must be completed before Christmas morning dawns.

Football Fiesta - The Heineken Way


Girls, Rio Carnival costumes, beer and football. The perfect mix?
What happens when you bring together the beautiful game, amazing costumes from the ultimate football nation – we’re talking Brazil of course – and everyone’s favourite Dutch export? 
Whatever you’re imagining, it probably isn’t this…

The One About The Nation’s Ultimate Dad Dancer


Cool! I actually recognised some of my own moves in this video-clip...

As a Dad, I quickly understood that one of my duties was to embarrass my kids at any opportunity available if I wanted to make the grade... So, showing off my "classy" dance moves in front of their friends was one of my favourite (and one of the most efficient) ways to do so.

Believe it or not, you'll never be a true Dad until you've demonstrated your dance moves in public (and preferably in front of your kids' friends)...

Unless, of course, you're a single/divorced Dad and you want to impress some of your kids' friends' Mums, that is. That's the only acceptable reason for not doing it as, for some unknown and weird reasons, the Mums don't really warm up to that kind of public display. That's also why I've stopped doing my famous dance moves in public since I've got divorced... Just in case, you know.

Of course, your kids will try to stop you doing your dance moves... they might even plead with you or (they can be crafty, when they want) give you the wrong address of where the party they're going takes place so that you don't show up there and make (in their eyes) a fool of yourself.

Don't worry too much about that, they're just jealous... They wish they could dance like you, but haven't got the guts to do it. They also know that they'll have to wait until they're parents themselves to dance like that and get away with it.

But, now, you've got a good reason to carry on dancing your way and even do so with your kids' blessing...

Yep, you could win a prize for you and your family!
There is no way they'll even think of stopping you now...

 Here is what the competition's organisers say:

"The winner (that could be you... as long as you live in the Uk) and his family will be sent to spend a week in Jamaica, where the island’s infectious rhythms, music and attitude will hopefully rub off on dad. 
He’ll also go into Dance Rehab and be given some individual tuition."

Don't worry too much about the "Dance Rehab" business, it's not as painful as it sounds...

"Kiss FM's Rickie Haywood-Williams will choose a winner from the ten most popular clips. Runners-up will be drawn from a Rasta hat and will receive special ipod Nanos."

Are you the Uk's Ultimate Dad Dancer?
There is only one way to find out: by entering the competiton...

Have fun!

The One About England's Football Legends


Genuine football legends share how it feels to wear the England shirt

At last a post that my kids will read and won't mind being seen reading...
They're lovely kids, really... but when it's football's World Cup and/or European Cup time, they usually turn all BNP on me, loudly supporting the English team (they're born in England and their mum is British) but not allowing me to make my support to the French team too vocal. Hmmph! 

(I'm only joking, they're not that bad.)

The video for today's post is a film where football legends are interviewed in a way that lets us see them as everyday heroes... people who have simply achieved their personal best.

  • Terry Butcher expresses how it feels to put an England shirt on – that it has the ability to inspire you to realise that you could be making history. His story about wearing the shirt, looking in the mirror before games and feeling a sense of readiness for the challenge of playing is summarised perfectly in his line ‘right, let’s go!”.
  • Viv Anderson communicates the sense of positivity he felt with the entire country right behind him when he played his first game for England. We also realise how he proudly rose to the occasion of being England’s first black player.
  • We feel Bert Williams’ sense of self-belief shine through as he explains that putting the England shirt and badge on made him ‘feel on a different planet!’
  • We begin to appreciate the sense of inspiration Stuart Pearce must have felt when he expresses the feeling of being in the England team for the first time. We also understand the sense of achievement he must have felt being selected for England after all his efforts to get there - it is summarized perfectly in his line ‘it’s not bad for an electrician.’ Most poignantly we realise the scale of the challenge he must have faced in rising to the occasion of walking out against Brazil to a crowd of 92,000 people.
  • Hope Powell’s sense of positivity is felt as she explains how playing for England felt like being in a fairytale.
  • And finally, as Martin Peters relates his experiences of being picked for the 1966 England squad we appreciate the personal efforts he must have made to get there and the pressure he must have felt to rise to the occasion of playing for his country in a World Cup final.

Yep, genuine football legends and everyday heroes...

I can see a competition coming on...

Ah, yes... It's for our readers living in the UK, and the winner could be Mars' official reporter at England’s pre South Africa training camp. Not a bad prize, is it?

Tell the competition's organisers why you should go and you could be a winner! Simples.

 Enjoy the video and good luck to our British readers...
