    Cork Tip Cigarettes

    There`s one thing worse than a smoker.. an ex smoker who brags about how easy it is to give up the habit. I found it really hard & tried many times & many ways to give up, i tried a pipe, cigars, herbal baccy roll ups & i think it has to be sheer willpower in the end. I haven`t smoked now for...

    Autumn in the Garden

    Lost a beautiful Greenfinch today. Hit the window with some force & died instantly. Wife made a cardboard coffin for it & buried it in the garden. So sad to see anything die ( except flies & mosquitos )

    In the garden?

    I seem to have missed the fact that `In the garden 2020` is not open for further replies?

    Dog thefts.

    Breeding from dogs requires some effort albeit not a lot. Far easier for these turds to take a dog & it`s very easy to sell them for considerable amounts of money. I paid £900 for my westie & some breeds can sell for much more than that. Beats working for a living !!:mad:

    Dog thefts.

    Dog thefts are on the rise. BBC news reports that dog thefts are on the rise. There have been 6 dogs stolen in my village. My Westie likes to sit at the front gate & watch the world go by. He`s reasonably safe as i have a bicycle lock on the drive gates, but i suppose he`s small enough to be...

    Good music to listen to on U Tube

    I think it was me. I`m always admiring myself in the mirror. I can`t pass a shop window without thinking how great i look, & then i comb my hair, all 5 strands neatly into place.

    What do you watch on tv nowadays ?

    I recently watched part of episode one of `The Duchess` on Netflix & it was appalling. You expect the odd f word on tv these days but this programme took swearing to a new level. Loads of f words plus a few c & t words thrown in. Why? This show was written by a woman, Katherine Ryan. Whatever...

    Pavarotti, a wannabe goalkeeper who realised he was better at singing.

    In the Garden 2020

    Not much going on in the garden lately. Roses & pansies still flowering, plenty of birds to keep us amused, planted all my bulbs, if anyone likes fragrant tulips you must try "Angelique" a late flowering tulip with a gorgeous scent.
