These are 100 Facebook fan pages that I find funny
24. Apparently, 1 in 5 people in the world are Chinese. And there are 5 people in my family, so it must be one of them. It’s either my mum or my dad. Or my older brother Colin. Or my younger brother Ho-Chan-Chu. But I think it’s Colin.
And finally number 100. I Need To Stop Becoming A Fan For Every Fan Page That Relates To Me.

As many of you who follow me on Twitter will know, I have some very special news to share with you all. After nine and a quarter years together, a house, two full tours of Afghan and a mini one on the way, and two foreign postings (three if you count Scotland) The Boy finally decided to do the right thing, get down on one knee and ask me to be his wife.
I have to say, it wasn’t a complete surprise. We’ve probably been talking about it (much to his annoyance) for the last two years and have often discussed where said dream nuptials would take place.
That said I was beginning to give up hope that he would ever actually get around to asking me and was wondering what degree of bunnyboiling would be necessary to get him to take the next step.
I thought that something might…

How about standing at train stations holding signs for the children who will have to discontinue…

OBJECTIVE OF THIS MANUAL
Poor sanitation is endemic across Afghanistan and exacts a heavy toll on public health. In response, the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD), multiple donors, the United Nations, several implementers, and USAID are engaged in providing funding and technical leadership to sanitation programs and facility construction throughout the country.

Donors and implementers must agree to promote, and uniformly apply sound social development, public health, marketing, finance, and technical guidance to the health-focused planning of new investments and the delivery of sustainable sanitation services.

Airport Chatter, which debuted just in time to take advantage of the busy holiday travel season, is a new mobile application aiming to be the one-stop shop for everything related to air travel, from the time of departure to the time of arrival. The app includes venue profiles for the shops and services inside airports, allowing users to not only discover the hours of operations and other business info, but also post check-ins and reviews. That makes it something like a miniature version of Yelp, specifically designed for airports.
But co-founder and CEO Mark Wagner explains that the company’s goal is bigger than that – the venue listings feature is only one of many they have in store. The goal is to go beyond becoming the next “Gate Guru,” for example, in order to offer users a more complete travel platform that can help them with every…
