Psychic didn’t see this one coming

crystal-ball.jpg A psychic museum is closing its doors – due to unforeseen circumstances. Astrologer Jonathan Cainer set up the York Psychic Museum in 2003 but business has been less than expected. Mr Cainer told the York Press he had handed over the lease, with the intention of making a return in 2008.

He said: “If you are asking me for predictions when exactly it will open up again, then it is hard to say. Although I’m in the prediction business, I don’t believe you can make predictions about things you are close to.”

Mr Cainer said the museum was only seeing 100 people a week through its doors during peak times and, when he reopens, he would like to see that figure at around 100 a day. Mr Crainer said he had reluctantly concluded the museum would never meet his expectations until he could dedicate more of his own time and energy to it.

Do you have money as long as you have checks?

A Hertfordshire woman asked her bank for a new chequebook – and was sent 200 [of them] instead.

Michelle Gordine, 36, of Stotfold, got four full sacks of chequebooks after a computer error at HSBC, reports the Mirror. As she uses only two books a year, it would take the dancing school owner 100 years to use them all.

Michelle said: “My postman husband estimated theyd cost £100 to send. What a waste of money.”

HSBC said: “This was a rare human error for which we have apologised.”

Dang! I wish I had a picture to post with this! (Maybe not.)

According to the sheriff’s department: [He] entered the shoulder and was unable to regain control as the load shifted and the truck fell onto its right side in the east ditch.

Coffee beer

FromThe Tampa Bay Times
Coffee beer, the newest beer flavor since Belgian raspberries, is here and sold in brew pubs and bottled by microbreweries. It’s an oddball specialty, but a growing category, especially in winter. Twenty-eight coffee beers entered the judging in last year’s Great American Beer Festival in Denver.
