Its a toss up between download speed, content and interest when you visit someones web site for the first time - I knocked out the animated GIF's and a nice piece of music (not Midi) from Blackdog in order to go for speed.

This page should load in about 30 seconds but most of my other pages take a bit more time.

Bonfire Night 1999

If you want to know more about the author click the face below:

A woman in hospital has a near death experience. She sees God, and asks if this is it. God says no, that she has another 30-40 years to live.

She recovers, and decides to stay in the hospital and have a face lift, lipo-suction, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, hair dyed, etc. She figures since she's got another 30 or 40 years she might as well make the most of it. She walks out of the hospital after the last operation and immediately gets hit by an ambulance.

She arrives in front of God and asks, "I thought you said I had another 30 or 40 years?"

"Sorry, I didn't recognize you," comes His reply.
