    The Cow

    A couple of days ago we all shared the task of clearing the weeds from the flowerbeds in my back garden and, to help pass the time enjoyably, we frequently stopped what we were doing to admire the little creatures that popped in for a visit. Squirrels, birds, cats and even a...

    Charity Assault Course

    Have you ever attempted to get around an army assault course? I once had a shot at it and yes, of course I found it very difficult; in fact I found it terrifying but I don’t think I totally disgraced myself. I think a large part of the problem for me is that we had had a...

    Football

      Football is not really quite my thing but hey, at least I do understand most of the rules. I may not be able to recite statistics from matches over the years; in fact I can’t recite the players’ names in our local professional team but surely that can’t...

    My New Loo

      The loo in the main bathroom at home was never very good in my opinion and at last I’ve had it replaced. Oh boy, the difference is amazing.   Now I’m not exactly an expert in lavatory design and I’m even less adept at plumbing but the efficiency...

    The Mower

    I suppose it’s always better to read the instruction manual of any new appliance or machine before physically starting it up and using it. It is something I have always done and I admit that, although I know I should display better manners, I have tended to show little...

    Confused Mugs

    Well. I've just gone and emptied the dishwasher because it started to beep to tell me it's finished and wants more dishes to wash. While I was emptying it I took a couple of mugs out of the dish washer and walked towards the mug cupboard to put them away. I was distracted by some...

    Children In Need

    Once a year we have a fund-raising day throughout the country for a charity called "Children in Need" and the focus of the event is the four-hour long television show that runs from 19:00-23:00 on BBC TV. Every year I am always taken by surprise that someone dressed in...

    Rocky Horror

    Owwwww! Whoever invented corsets should have been locked up! Who was the sadist? Whoever it was, I’d lay money that it was a guy. No woman would have come up with such an evil contraption in the name of fashion and beauty, I swear. It’s been a long, long time...

    Beep Beep!

    Four years after I was born, the Russians sent the first ever satellite up into space. It was called Sputnik and such were the skills of mankind that we were able to launch this piece of hardward into orbit around the Earth. It went "beep beep". I was woken up this...

    My First Driving Lesson - 1973

      We were all discussing driving lessons and we each related any little anecdotes that we thought the rest might find amusing. I remember my first ever “lesson” very well even though it was thirty-five years ago. I wouldn’t mind betting that Daniel, a...

    Gravity and Antigravity

    My apologies for this entry but I promise to try and not be quite so silly tomorrow. I read somewhere that Venus and Uranus are retrograde planets. This means that they spin on their axis in the opposite direction to the rest of the planets in our solar system. In other words...

    Haha, Yeah

    I have a feeling that my entire family and friends are nuts. Or is it just me ? I still think it's better to be nuts than being stereotypical - aren't all scientists and extremely smart people crazy ? They are. So, be proud of being different and nuts ! :)

    Cuckoo

      Pixel has killed my cuckoo! My beautiful Swiss cuckoo clock that I bought whilst on a family holiday to Interlaken years ago has hung proudly from my dining room wall ever since. It’s sweet cry of ‘cuck-ooo’ every half hour plus the requisite amount...

    Lighthouse

      Years and years ago I dreamed about living in a converted lighthouse. This not-quite-an-ambition was something I freely shared with friends and acquaintances and twice I even received information of a lighthouse going up for sale. Sandra thinks the idea is “really...

    Monkey Business

      Now look, I’m 53 years old and if I were matured any more than I already am, I’d be officially classified as “ancient” – and maybe in some circles I am already very likely to be thought of as such. I fervently observe the well-understood...

    Yup!

    I'm nuttier than squirrel! And loving every moment of it! XD I'm most a nut when I'm hyper on COFFEE!!!! But even without the caffeine, I'm pretty weird still. Funny thoughts often pop into my head. And comedy improv is my favorite hobby. Even if it's not always funny...

    Flags

      Sitting in a pub last March I looked at all the St Patrick’s Day decorations and could hardly help but notice that the bar was smothered in cheap plastic bunting in the shape of flags. Oh certainly, the bunting flags were the flag of Ireland but I couldn...
