I need true grit to invest in this market

IT'S snowing outside (surprise, surprise!) and I only wish I could choose a share in grit because it would definitely go up! Maybe shares in the actual gritters would be good but I don't think we have them either.
Being asked to choose six shares is a bit of a gamble. To be honest I don't have a clue! So I'm going for big names that I recognise!
My No 1 reason for Tesco has to be Mary Byrne! If that outstanding lady can do so well on The X Factor, then surely their shares will increase also?
Plus the amount of plugs Tesco have got in since Mary was on the show must see an increase in their value?! Tesco is sure to come up with new and interesting ways to increase the value of its business.
The colder it gets in Ireland the more people will go on holiday, so Aer Lingus is an easy choice.
In Ireland we drink, and we're proud of it -- so Diageo has to do well in 2011! I'm definitely going to have a part in increasing the value of these shares, and now I have a reason no one can stop me.
I hear that during a recession two things increase -- the amount of babies being born and the amount of people gambling. Job done with Paddy Power.
I couldn't choose Aer Lingus without choosing Ryanair too. Plus, those calendars O'Leary flogs are getting racier by the year -- surely that's going to do him some good?
At least one of the banks next year has to start doing better and my pick of the bunch is BoI. Why? It gave me a credit card when I was 19 and I didn't even have a job!
