Mornin' all.

Chap in my office was driving from Norwich to Somerset on Sunday last. He said to his pax - "Look, in 1 mile's time the milometer will read 66,666 miles." Whereupon the engine died and withiong two minutes the car was fully ablaze. Happily they all got out safely.

.....bless all who sail in this Trabship!

Green post van on island rounds

The first electric post van is doing the rounds on the Isle of Man.

The Manx Post Office said the new addition was an environmentally-friendly alternative to the traditional delivery van.
The Mega Multitruck II has zero exhaust emissions and runs completely on rechargeable batteries. The van will be used for the Isle of Man Government messenger service in Douglas and may also be tested on a small rural delivery route.

How kind of them to point out the actual colour for us, that's really going to fox the colour blind then! Now if they came across to Erin, all the An Post vans are green, even the ones that punch out noxious fumes.

MadsMum showed me the article about the kids wrecking the house with a party but she thought it was a repeat of the earlier article (the bit about someone peeing on the mothers wedding dress was what raised her suspicions. Although there could be a teenager out there with a thing about wedding dresses).

Maybe they need to prove its innocence Gainsey. Have we had roll call yet? I'm here for a little while until I depart to do some flying.

....no doubt conveniently avoiding mention of the carbon guzzling power station that provides the wiggly amps to charge the batteries.

Starbucks ignoramuses notwithstanding, I have decided to launch a new line of gourmet coffee variety packs. These packs will include three types of, um, pre-digested coffee beans - Asian palm civet, rockhopper penguin, and capybara. Get your orders in quickly, chaps - supplies are limited and they are bound to sell out soon.

PS I also have a vacancy for a coffee, um, sorter. Must like animals.

Well, you didn't expect me to sort the beans myself, did you? My French manicure would be ruined.

Hmmm. My gourmet coffee venture is having teething problems. Capi the capybara is normally quite docile and spends most of his time swimming in the pond, munching on water hyacinth. Since feeding him coffee beans he has become somewhat hyperactive - he has already attacked the postman.

And Rocky keeps spitting out the coffee beans. I think I shall have to resort to hiding them in a sardine.
