Protest


Protest 1
Originally uploaded by The original SimonB
So how did I spend my birthday yesterday? Mostly getting soaked through to the skin marching along the sea front in order to try and save the Blue Cross centre here in Felixstowe which is threatened with closure. Something to do with the charity wanting to concentrate resources elsewhere and the current site not being suitable for expansion.

As we got our cats from there (Barney RIP and Tawny very much still with us) we felt duty-bound to show our support along with 300 or so others. There is a real feeling in the local press that this shouldn't be allowed to happen, and I hope all the efforts people are going to (not just this one small demonstration) make the decision makers see what a valuable resource our centre is. They may not be able to get bigger, but they do a great job locally and it would be a real shame to lose it.

Oh, we went out for a lovely meal in the evening after drying out again and I got lots of nice presents as well!

Everybody[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/old+sit+on+face+black+women+porno.html]old sit on face black women porno[/url] heard rumours [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/porno+sex+izle.html]porno sex izle[/url] about women[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/porno+animal+dog+horse+tube.html]porno animal dog horse tube[/url] faking orgasms. Is that true? The majority of women have [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/free+xxx+sex+porno+movie+tubes.html]free xxx sex porno movie tubes[/url] faked at least one orgasm, yet some fake almost all of them. Why do they do that? There[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/humpday+amateur+porno+festival+seattle.html]humpday amateur porno festival seattle[/url] are many reasons and the case is that there's [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/porno+tv+zoo.html]porno tv zoo[/url] no one to blame.
The most [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/russian+mature+porno.html]russian mature porno[/url] common are two [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/free+movie+viewing+porno.html]free movie viewing porno[/url] reasons: they[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/amateurs+porno+varese.html]amateurs porno varese[/url] don't want to make their partners feel bad [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/white+teen+lesbian+porno.html]white teen lesbian porno[/url] or they are tired and just want to end sex. Most females say that their partners ar[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/dogpile.videos+porno+gratis.html]dogpile.videos porno gratis[/url] e not satisfied until the[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/thai+teen+porno.html]thai teen porno[/url] girls feels orgasm, there's only one way to make them feel happy and stop the[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/porno+rama+vidieos%2Fgrandma+movies.html]porno rama vidieos/grandma movies[/url] exhausting procedure - fake.
Another [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/free+anime+porno+movis.html]free anime porno movis[/url] reason is that a[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/videos+porno+gay+mexicanos.html]videos porno gay mexicanos[/url] typical female [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/young+hot+girls+porno.html]young hot girls porno[/url] doesn't seek for orgasm; she desires a sexual [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/teen+models+porno.html]teen models porno[/url] relationship only because she wants intimacy. Still, such an attitude may make her partner feel bad. [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/anime+porno+free+movies.html]anime porno free movies[/url] The only way out is to [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/puffy+nipple+porno+pictures.html]puffy nipple porno pictures[/url] fake it out.
[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/forbidden+teen+porno.html]forbidden teen porno[/url] Some women never really experience orgasm while making sex, but they want their partner to feel good about himself and her. Men usually expect women to have pleasure, that's why females have no other choice. They have to fake to have a good relationship.
Loss of interest, having sex only because the partner wants to, also makes women to fake. Most females talk to their friends about such things and while they know other women act it, they do so too, because it's an easier way to have a good relationship.

In biology, sex is [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/free+interracial+sex+pics.html]free interracial sex pics[/url]
a process of combining and mixing [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/how+to+have+anal+sex+video.html]how to have anal sex video[/url]
genetic traits, often resulting [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/amateur+couple+sex.html]amateur couple sex[/url]
in the specialization of organisms into [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/young+teen+couple+having+sex.html]young teen couple having sex[/url]
a male or female variety (known as a sex). Sexual reproduction involves combining specialized cells (gametes) to form offspring [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/carrie+prejean+s+sex+tape.html]carrie prejean s sex tape[/url]
that [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/pinoy+sex+scandals.html]pinoy sex scandals[/url]
inherit traits from both parents. Gametes can be identical in form and function (known as isogametes), but in many cases an asymmetry has evolved [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/usa+sex++guide.html]usa sex guide[/url]
such that two sex-specific types of gametes (heterogametes) exist: male [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/indian+desi+sex.html]indian desi sex[/url]
gametes are small, [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/amateur+sex+tape.html]amateur sex tape[/url]
motile, and optimized to transport their genetic information over a distance, while female gametes are large, non-motile and contain [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/list+of+celebrity+sex+tapes.html]list of celebrity sex tapes[/url]
the nutrients necessary for the early development of the young organism.
An organism's sex is [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/forced+asian+sex.html]forced asian sex[/url]
defined by the gametes it produces: males produce male [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/dog+having+sex+with+girls.html]dog having sex with girls[/url]
gametes (spermatozoa, or sperm) while females produce female gametes (ova, or egg cells); individual organisms which produce both male and female [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/hard+sex+tubes.html]hard sex tubes[/url]
gametes are termed hermaphroditic. Frequently, physical differences are associated with the different sexes of an organism; these sexual dimorphisms can reflect the different reproductive pressures the sexes experience.
