Babysitting for a friend tonight. Just spent a good half hour with her kid playing a game where you pull a plastic cows tail up to see if it does a moo, poo or wee. Rock and roll Friday night here!

Where can I buy one? Sounds way more entertaining than watching this England game! 🙄

BP’s Christmas present sorted!

Honestly, watching England is dull. I hate international breaks. Kid is asleep now and I’m watching some junior doctor remove a blood clot from up someone’s nose. Miles more exciting then watching England 💤

You’re not wrong there. Losing now.

Watching the removal of a blood clot from up someone’s nose probably counts as exciting in deepest Sussex. 😉

Amazing how some memories always stay with you. Found this on the net and it made me smile because I actually remember it. When the war was over my dad used to do a bit of haymaking for a farmer up Dunscar. This horse trough was outside the Three Pigeons pub, previously The Lawson Arms on Blackburn Road/Astley Bridge. It would be about 1947/8 and back then we thought nothing of walking up there from Halliwell to Dunscar and back. My dad never had a car The farm was down a lane somewhere near the Dunscar war memorial.

Gee Bruce, I honestly don 't know; I was just a kid at the time. (My dad worked up there in his works holidays, he just loved farm work having been brought up on one in Ireland. I seem to remember a big shop that sold ice cream on the corner of where we turned down off the main road and a big mill nearby, but the memory fades beyond that.

A combination of not being very well (seriously ill indeed) and having had enough of furum aggro. He'll be missed, particularly by me. Best of luck mate.

Here's where Greta and the great unwashed extinction rebellion turkeys should be protesting, the real polluters.
According to the AirVisual website, Delhi remained the most polluted city in the world on Tuesday, ahead of Kolkata in eastern India and Lahore in Pakistan. Beijing was in sixth place.
Construction was banned temporarily in Delhi late last week, while schools have been closed until Wednesday – with city authorities handing out free anti-pollution masks to children.

Never believe it is humans who own the tittle of being aggressive :lol:
Just built a bird feeding table that a robin seems to have claimed for herself, so far she has attacked sparrows, Starlings and even took on a pigeon that had the cheek to try nicking HER food! Dead funny to watch better than the BBC anyway.

Well, it's official the Robin clearly 'owns' that table even when not eating it sits in the tree nearby and ambushes anything that turns up. :lol: :lol: :lol:
