    I thought women only ever reached the age of "25 and a bit" - that's what my mum always said - even when the "bit" was bigger than the 25!
    The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

    I always say 'I don't know, what year is this?' and then spend a while working it out.

    Which effectively camouflages the smell of actual rotting flesh?

    You do realise that your place is ideally situated for a pincer movement from, say, Pontefract and Suffolk don’t you?

He also likes lily beetle larvae so is doing a great job in getting rid of pests.
    Neighbour has a Blackbird visit 3-4 times a day. The bird takes grapes from his hand, but is now getting so demanding that it hops into the kitchen and if the grapes are on the worktop will help it's self!
