A trip to Kirkwall today to see the optician (follow up after my cataract operation) and the dentist (6 monthly check). Optician delighted with my eyes and tells me I no longer required glasses; dentist says no problems, see you in 6 months. Had a celebratory fish & chips with Guinness in the St Ola Hotel. Smooth ferry crossing both ways. Life is good!

Good luck with that, ORAC ... win heaps!!!

Sound advice for our serial marriage addict, Nervous. He should particularly stay well clear of Asian women bearing sharp implements ... or blunt ones ... or anything that could be used as a weapon.

The mention of lunch earlier sent me to the kitchen. Buck rarebit plus some anchovies. Yum!

Most people have milk with their cornflakes, Avi ...but there's nothing wrong with taking an individual approach to these things.

The long dog earned his biscuits yesterday. Took him for a pre-pub walk and he became overly interested in a particular hedgerow and kept pulling back to it. Unusual behavior from him even though he is a daft git. Took a closer look and found a kitten about four or five weeks old and not looking too healthy. No sign of the mother or other kittens. Bit of a dilemma then. Leave it and hope the mother returns or pick the poor bugger up. Did the latter popping it in my coat pocket and walked round to the local vets. The vet reckons that it is a feral kitten that was abandoned, probably because the litter was too big. Not much wrong with her and she was taken in by a local shelter and will be fed and weaned and rehomed. Barmaid at the local was rather moved and phoned the shelter to offer her a home when ready. Double ration of treats for the long dog.

Then there was the episode of M*A*S*H, where Hawkeye Pierce started his day with, 'Snap, Crackle & Burp!'

The crackle that startles: happens when bacon and eggs are being cooked.
The alarm is when I find that; my tea has gone:- missing - cold.
These are really boring and totally pointless snippets.

Sitting at home waiting for man to come and repair chip in memsahib's charriot windscreen. He has just called................. "Hullo mate it's Dave from ****windscreens, I'll be with you in 30 mins, that OK mate", Told him I've never met him before so how can I be his mate. Lets see how "matey" he is when he gets here

"Mate" is used widely here in Oz and will be applied regardless of how long you've known the person ... five minutes or fifty years. "Darl" or "darls" is used in a similar manner and, like "mate", doesn't seem to imply a relationship of any sort. It's just a sort of general greeting but, of course, it does come in very handy when you've forgotten the other person's name.

Its a time and milk saver Bluey, though warm coffee flavoured cornflakes can take a little getting used to.
