This year we had a chocolate & orange one -just like a jaffa. They do things like chocolate & macadamia, date & toffee as well as the classic. And they even export to UK.

Why would you want to slice a mandolin? If you don't like the tone, retune it or smash it with an axe!

You have to charge it, then hold the button down, not just press it.

A friend of mine is a paramedic.He told me about a call he made to a house where someone had been using a circular saw from a rental company on some floorboards.They cut through flesh very well he noted.I wouldn't touch a chainsaw or circular saw without some sort of safety training.

Then throw it out the car window when it tries to take you on the road (or bay) less travelled. Bozo alert , but still...

I hate talking maps; they should be seen and not heard.

Top tip's I've picked up over the last few day's.....

  1. Flying your grandson's remote control helicopter after beer is unwise.
  2. Trying to fix it with "Superglue" following ingestion of beer is equally unwise.
  3. Going for a wee after the two above actions is even more unwise.

A week in Cabo, ALL PAID UP. Usually such a week comes with attendant costs so this is a great prezzy.

Tools, one of those helicopter toys, new mouse for computer, books and jeans, (See, there is some value in having six kids.)

Today is my birthday. Won't know till later.

I got the complete collection of "Love Joy". All 6 series including specials, 3776 Min's!
I think its just about the best present they've ever got me.








The practise Sister gave me an insulin pen, that wasn't such a good present. (Didn't stop me opening the Port though. Do you think it will still be all right to carry on drinking it next Christmas)?

The only thing I miss is the photo of the grandson when he found out what Grandpa had done .

Just watching "The Evil Dead II" and can't help noticing that the main character has a blatant disregard for chainsaw safety, biggest sin cutting through the floorboards using the tip.

Big no no
