Afternoon. Accursed Dog.

Changeable here is the summary.

gupta - Keep it up. You'll be amazed what Trabbforce can do.

now what about the drinking? (With pictures preferably).
Hear hear Octopussy!! We will of course be getting piccies of you by the pool on your forthcoming 'business trip' won't we?

Exascot, you seem to have a different adventure every day in Africa. No wonder you need the Greek Islands for a break where things seem a little more laid back!

Happy birthday Ian, thanks for the websites.

Mrs HF has just handed me an Orange Club biscuit along with a cup of tea.
What's happened to them. Have they shrunk in the wash or something.
They must be half the size they used to be.

Is nothing sacred. rant, rant, rant, rant.

Just had a birthday party!

Went out to this place, they do a nice curry.

Blue Lagoon Restaurant( Ramsgate*Beachfront ) - Home

The service was brilliant, maybe because we were the only people in there, 'cos the weather was like this:



Even the Indian Ocean lets you down occasionally.

According to the outside thermometer on the car, it is a cool 20C today, but I'm still in shorts

Belated birthday wishes and Trrabforce to those who need it.


Rather a pleasant afternoon here.

12C but there is very little, if any, wind; the anemometer seems totally disinclined to turn at all. Make the most of it, that doesn't often happen round here. First cut of the grass has been completed, I shall let it recover for a few days then sneak up on it from behind when it isn't expecting it and give it a good going-over with the electric lawn rake. If it rains, that should turn it into an accurate representation of the Somme battlefield for a few weeks but should get rid of all the thatch and moss. With any luck the grass should have re-grown by September.

Many happy returns, Ian!

As a "Man of Kent" (born to the East of the River Medway) I'm highly chuffed to see that so many of the familiar names of places in my county have somehow managed to be magically transferred to such a beautiful (and warm) location on the Indian Ocean coast of SA!

Fond as I am of Wye, Hythe, Penshurst, Appledore and Ramsgate as worthy towns and villages of the oldest named county in England, they would in my opinion be enormously improved by enjoying the idyllic climate evident in your link. One suspects that some of the street names shown on the map of your Ramsgate might have been chosen by one or two former Kent residents ...

LM

Whereabouts in Fl are you?

When I worked for a living I used to visit Boca Raton quite frequently. The same sort of climate and the same old people waiting to die

A bit like the 4ma household at about 8.30 this morning!

Rescue carried out four less pups loose in the campo, now safe in kennels pending rehoming.

Heavy short showers have started.

Yippee, the Grim Reaper has passed me by again.
Good morning all from a heavy frost covered East Midlands of the UK.
0C as I write and patches of mist abound.

Budget Day today.
Another day of largesse on display while the bandits slip in through the back window and steal the jam tarts.
I'm looking forward to the day when the FSL seizes power and makes use of all those useless lamp posts that hang around at night doing nothing apart from purportedly saving the planet.

Today is the anniversary of the death in 1988 of Percy Thrower, gardener and TV presenter who did so much for pottering trousers.
Truly a sheddist hero.

Here's hoping your battered body isn't giving you too much grief this morning Exascot
