Bluey: growing just a few vegies there and herbs
I think I'm becoming a vegetablarian
(don't call me a lentil knitter, I'll rip your ***king head off)
No, i'm talking a plate of meat and four veg

Since we moved in 15 months ago, the locals seem to think that we are undernourished, because they keep showering us with their home-grown veg. Just today I've noshed donated cherry toms (I cannot tell you how good), beetroot, spuds and carrots. In the last fortnight we've been given red cabbage, turnips, peppers, walnuts, cucumbers, courgettes, pumpkins, apples and leeks. Oh, and jerusalem artichokes, although I gave the kind donor a graphic description - including mime and sound effects - why they would not find their way into our pot or our intestines.

My poor body has never had so much wholesome food thrust into it.

With the tv going in the background I have noted that Christmas ads seem to have ramped up seamlessly right after Hallowe'en ended. I pay little attention but it does seem an even earlier grab for money than last year. Every day earlier just dilutes what ever joy Christmas has to offer unless you just focus on family and friends without the materialistic garbage.

Glad to hear you are happy with your place Bluey.
It's the most wonderful old house, [email protected] ... loads and loads of room, five bedrooms (three, plus two rooms that could have other uses if needed), two bathrooms with a third toilet off the laundry, lounge area, theatre room, family room where I have my desk etc., kitchen and dining room plus another small room between the laundry and the lounge ... it's a magical old place and I love it to bits. It's in an extremely up-market area but the rent is very cheap because of the not-very-good condition of this old place. I don't care about the two roof leaks; one is over one of the baths anyway and the other just gets a bucket. I'm happy here!

First essay back, got a good mark.
We never doubted that for a moment, reddo ... well done!!!

Morning all.
Tis FRIDAY; the day of wonder, excitement and merriment.

Dull, grey and wet.
I have taken breakfast in accordance with the conditions viz
Macsweens haggis smothered in tomato ketchup.
Sets a chap up for a day of probing the Derby defences.

The cloud extends down to Mummerset as well. (Still, only to be expected. It is carnival tonight).

Temp overnight didn't drop below 17C, normally only 10 at this time of year. Reason is the high pressure bringing wx up from N. Afrika. Wish it'd bought a bit of Sunshine though.


Nephew, even if a man in blue, wants to watch out for the light fingered brigade Mr. D.. I Have an excellent anti theft device in the garage. $'drain pipes in the form of a 'U" with a couple of lengths of rebar running through the loop then cemented into the floor. A hefty Abus chain and lock through that and the frame. If they want it they have to either saw the frame in half or dig up the floor.

Pictures are essential Lon, an alternative to your system, a homeless and rejected refugee, granted asylum in your garage, with a 12 bore shotgun should do the trick! Going to be a lot available quite soon!

Just watched a TV documentary on the Mackay-Bennett, surely of interest to our FSL.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CS_Mackay-Bennett

Also played a sad role in the Titanic disaster, recovering bodies. Due limited space on the ship, only the bodies of 1st and 2nd class passengers were taken on board, all others either not recovered or buried at sea (except for the body of a young boy whose identity remained a mystery until a few years back when DNA analysis revealed who he was).
