A worrying headline on today's BBC news site:
"Dorset knob-eating contest goes digital".!

Interesting tour.
Learned some things.
1. Don't mess with the fuel-water drain.
2. Remember where you are when you comment about VE day being a public holiday....

At the risk of exchanging feet in ones mouth, has anyone heard from an erstwhile chum, Angels?

He had some pretty serious heart problems didn't he? I do hope he's safe and well.

Well, it may not be a bed of roses living on one's own and unable to see friends and family throughout the Lockdown season, but by Christ I am thankful I don't have small children - next door's, as heard over the fence and increasingly through the walls, are an absolute ****ing nightmare at times. I sometimes pray fear their mother will run them through with any sharp implement to hand...

Remember they are all special. No one can fail, all are a success.
