The only thing we forgot was Cough Syrup

And our scratchy coughy throats are increasingly reminding us of our lapse. The fact that we know we haven’t got much left and that there is no way in hell that we can get any, is making things worse. We knew what the weather was going to be like; we’ve been getting winter storm warnings all week,... Sign in to see full entry.

1 way to double your car’s worth

The list method seems to be the in thing lately when it comes to getting articles published, so being an amateur I thought I’d start with 1, rappel my way up to the base camp of 5 before attempting the climactic summit of 10 after a few years. Actually, I could do a ‘4 ways to’ right now 1) Don’t... Sign in to see full entry.

Merry Christmas Dear Reader. Here is a quick...

..explanation of one Christmas tradition. ‘When four of Santa’s elves got sick, the trainee replacement elves didn’t produce toys as fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the pre-Christmas pressure. Then Mrs Claus told Santa that her mother was coming to visit at Christmas, which... Sign in to see full entry.

There’s nothing much happening here.

On Monday the wind chill temperature was -22 F and the radio announcer was of the opinion that if we were going out, we should cover up as much flesh as possible. We took the easy way out and stayed indoors. The snow started 3 days ago but it lets up now and then. Today it hasn’t stopped since I... Sign in to see full entry.

Does this make sense to you or is Ell correct..

..in her belief that ‘my brain is too convoluted for its own good?’ I had decided to go to an auction – surprise! This time I was going, not to keep Ell company and incidentally pay the astronomical bill and humph things out to the car, but to relax. This may sound silly, but I was thankfully at a...

Morality My Ass!

I have just finished watching a condescending and moralising author being interviewed on TV news about his new book. The book is debating the ‘morality’ of the bombing of Germany’s cities near the end of WWII. According to the author, Bomber Harris knew that his carpet-bombing was having no...

Balls Checkout behind the 8 Ball

It’s Fall again. Not only does that mean Monarchs and Blue-Jays; it also means disappearing hummingbirds and Canada Geese training for their flight south. It also means the old farts’ pool league. The only problem is that the normal order of seasons will not work this Fall. The ‘C’ league, which is... Sign in to see full entry.

Or Should I say that Britain is like America...

…when it comes to retailing. The ‘Rite Aid’ store – I still wince with embarrassment when I type it – was like a British store. It was a single storey and had the stylistic quality of a lump of concrete dumped in the middle of a medium sized car park. It wasn’t a large pharmacy; in fact I don’t know...

America? It’s just like Britain.

Yesterday I had to go to the States. I was aching after a few early morning tennis games in a +27C temperature – I can’t even complain about it because I chose to be there; silly bugger. The temperature in the afternoon soared until it was too hot to do anything on my list – except make another... Sign in to see full entry.
