Day In York & Recent Photos :)

Hey guys! Me and my amazing boyfriend Chris ( decided to go to the beautiful city of York for the day. I have always loved York and all the history there is there, and I love going round the castle ruins.

This is a picture of me stood at the top of Clifford's Tower, a very old castle built in the 1200's

This is me and Chris 

We had an excellent day and I would love to go back again! I love looking round all the unique shops, and I bought myself a painting by numbers set and here is the finished result, only took me 2 nights!

My boyfriend bought himself a crossbow for £25 which was a bargain apparently. He has been shooting it in his garden, I had a go but I missed the target and lost the spike thing in the trees!

Here are some other random pictures. This one I have just taken now, I have just had my hair put up because I am going to a Ball tonight, I am very pleased with it!
I am so excited for tonight! I am wearing a long black dress with a zip down the front and some silver and black strappy heels. I will upload some photos tomorrow!

I will end my post with a photo of my little cat Muffin!

1900 Future Predicting Postcards & a 1932 sat nav!

Hey everyone!I have not posted for a while because I have been busy doing some training for a new job I just got :)

I was having a look around for blog inspiration when I came across these pretty funny postcards of the view of people in 1900 of what technology would be like in the year 2000. Take a look!

This one portrays TV and radio,which we obviously have :)

We definitely have water motorbikes and water skis, without the balloons though!

A house moving by train.

We already have a commercial Jetpack, sold for $75,000!

Personal airships.

Combined ship and railway locomotive. Maybe this is a bit extreme , but we do have amphibious vehicles.

Police x-ray surveillance. We have surveillance cameras everywhere.

Weather control machines. This might be more the prediction of 2100, but it has already been shown possible to some degree by the Russians and Chinese. Scary.

Summer holidays at the North Pole. Possible if you have a lot of money to spare.

Moving pavements. We have them primarily in airports!

Roofed cities.

Undersea tourist boats. We definitely have tourist submarines if you have enough money.

I also thought I would include this amazing invention from 1932, an early GPS system! Take a look, I had no idea these existed back then!

A tom-tom! Works using rolling key map. The map passes the screen in a tempo that depends on the speed of the car.

What do you all think? xxx

15 Interesting Facts About Dreams

1. You Forget 90% of Your Dreams

Within 5 minutes of waking half of your dream is forgotten. Within 10, 90% is gone.

2. Blind People also Dream

People who became blind after birth can see images in their dreams. People who are born blind do not see any images, but have dreams equally vivid involving their other senses of sound, smell, touch and emotion.

3. Everybody Dreams

Every human being dreams (except in cases of extreme psychological disorder). If you think you are not dreaming – you just forget your dreams.

4. In Our Dreams We Only See Faces That We already Know

Our mind is not inventing faces – in our dreams we see real faces of real people that we have seen during our life but may not know or remember. We have all seen hundreds of thousands of faces throughout our lives, so we have an endless supply of characters for our brain to utilize during our dreams.

5. Not Everybody Dreams in Colour

A full 12% of sighted people dream exclusively in black and white. The remaining number dream in full colour. Studies from 1915 through to the 1950s maintained that the majority of dreams were in black and white, but these results began to change in the 1960s. Today only 4.4% of the dreams of under-25 year-olds are in black and white. Recent research has suggested that those changing results may be linked to the switch from black-and-white film and TV to colour media.

6. Dreams are Symbolic

If you dream about some particular subject it is not often that the dream is about that. Dreams speak in a deeply symbolic language. Whatever symbol your dream picks on it is most unlikely to be a symbol for itself.

7. Emotions

The most common emotion experienced in dreams is anxiety. Negative emotions are more common than positive ones.

8. You can have four to seven dreams in one night.

On average you can dream anywhere from one or two hours every night.

9. Animals Dream Too

Studies have been done on many different animals, and they all show the same brain waves during dreaming sleep as humans. Watch a dog sleeping sometime. The paws move like they are running and they make yipping sounds as if they are chasing something in a dream.

10. Body Paralysis

Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep is a normal stage of sleep characterized by rapid movements of the eyes. REM sleep in adult humans typically occupies 20-25% of total sleep, about 90-120 minutes of a night’s sleep.
During REM sleep the body is paralyzed by a mechanism in the brain in order to prevent the movements which occur in the dream from causing the physical body to move. However, it is possible for this mechanism to be triggered before, during, or after normal sleep while the brain awakens.

11. Dream Incorporation

Our mind interprets the external stimuli that our senses are bombarded with when we are asleep and make them a part of ourdreams. This means that sometimes in our dreams we hear a sound from reality and incorporate it in a way. For example you may be dreaming that you are in a concert while your brother is playing a guitar during your sleep.

12. Men and Women Dream Differently

Men tend to dream more about other men. Around 70% of the characters in a man’s dream are other men. On the other hand, a woman’s dream contains almost an equal number of men and women. Aside from that, men generally have more aggressive emotions in their dreams than the female lot.

13. Precognitive Dreams

Results of several surveys across large population sets indicate that between 18% and 38% of people have experienced at least one precognitive dream and 70% have experienced déjà  vu. The percentage of persons that believe precognitive dreaming is possible is even higher – ranging from 63% to 98%.

14. If you are snoring, then you cannot be dreaming.

This fact is repeated all over the Internet, but I’m a bit suspicious whether it’s really true as I haven’t found any scientific evidence to support it.

5.You can experience an o r g asm in your dream

You can not only have s e x as pleasurable as in your real life while dreaming, but also experience an  o r g a s m  as strong as a real one without any wet results. The sensations felt while lucid dreaming (touch, pleasure and etc..) can be as pleasurable and strong (or I believe even stronger) as the sensations experienced in the real world.
