This is *the lighter to pull out at the local pub. Yeah.

Scooter Bell

A wonderful addition to a striking scooter. The mind bogles as to why a scooter needs a bell – surely the engine makes enough sound?

He rides no more.

My friend George died yesterday. Memories of him have flooded to the front of my head. I am tired from the barrage of images. Goodnight George.

WordPress ate my blog.

Why the silence? Well my frequent scrapbook entries have been thwarted by the wordpress app fail. It ate all drafts (there were many) and proceeded to not publish and crash and blah and blah. I cannot ever see myself at a computer uploading images and silly ideas – from my mobile it is perfectly immediate […]

My ring is Blick

This is not funny. But somehow it is. Oh, on another note, do you remember finding these useful?! I loved them, used them to keep my vinyl tight on the spindle.

No body but me

A trout without appendages fits nicely in the freezer. When cleaning my last fish this ‘natural composition’ occurred, knife became fish.

Schipol airport information

Some gates are a good distance (read miles) from the main entry an you need to hunt a bit. These signs help somewhat offering walking times. I like the way that have not […]

But isn’t everyone a patient?

This is in my doctor’s surgery waiting room. “Please give up your seat for a patient” Did i miss something?

Piff Paff

Poof! The French do devil snaps but theirs apparently do not go bang. Not sure how impressive a piff or a paff is to anyone.

Language moves on

Now and then he would argue with himself. ” Interesting to see how this line could not be used […]

Another ringer wanted

I wonder how long this wanted card has been in use. Spotted in the Sepulture Church of Northampton during the bridal procession.

Know thy audience

Glymbourne hosts rather opulent events and the clientele attracted obviously may have problems understanding the more ‘common’ toilet symbols.

What. Load of Radish

A fresh radish has a different texture to it, more bite, more fibre. Yes, it is straight from the garden. Salad anyone?

Giant Jack Russell

Spotted this dog in France. Kinda looked like a giant Jack Russell. Turns out it is a Spaniel/ Bassett cross. Nice dog, smooth tail, smooth fur, nice temperament. Good cross.
