    I have just been checking my emails and realise that I have arranged to be carrying out a chartered engineer on my birthday next week. Not gone down particularly well in certain quarters……

One iceberg lettuce - £12 or an organic one for a mere £2 more! The cheapest offeringsin the supermarkets appear to be Waitrose Essential products.
    Sounds like the rest of the Caribbean - anything from off the island is stupidly expensive, particularly fresh stuff, as it is air freighted in (it used to come from Miami but your lettuce has more air miles!). It also gets zapped by hurricanes regularly - I used to know a guy who grew tomatoes there and his farm was wiped out every 2 or 3 years regularly - which can't help either

    I'm sure I once saw a parking ticket machine with instructions in both text and Braille. Made me laugh.
    Happy to be a woke* feminist SJ(K)W snowflake in a godless universe, no matter what some experts think. And Braun was a twat who's not missed. At all.

    * Had to add woke; couldn't resist.

    The most Italian thing I ever saw was in a hotel in Bologna a couple of years ago. The room had an ashtray with a no-smoking sign stuck on it.

    Not at all - "this space reserved for those delivering Venetian Blinds (or similar)"

    I had always taken it to mean "This space reserved for drivers of the blind." There was a blind school or something relating nearby so it made sense, and actually may have been more effective. And thank you for your faith in my meanings!

    There are four varieties in society: the lovers, the ambitious, observers and fools. The fools are the happiest.

    Just had a call from a customer's sister. He's been found dead in the house, probably been there for a few days, heating was on constantly and a hot water tap running. I've been asked to make safe the boiler.
