Dryish, coldish and calmish at the Castle this morn, the contents of the study have spilled out into the spare room, his Maj has discovered the joy of smacking into the locked cat flat at full speed before I get the chance to unlock it, and the falling down and lying in vomit thing seems to be much better this Monday, no anti falling down and lying in vomit pills as yet-still standing....
Just returned from the stale bread gruel and pussy food run dahn Tesco, two quid more than last week....
Eric Carter, 91, was delighted to be invited to inspect a newly-revamped Spitfire in the city where he trained to fly them.
But when he asked if he could get in the cockpit, officials at the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery in Stoke-on-Trent told him it was a health and safety risk.
Stoke-on-Trent City Council said on the day of Eric's visit there was no "proper seat" in the plane, which had been recently coated with paint containing traces of radioactive radium.
He added: "For those reasons, and because of his age, the people on the day thought it best he did not sit in the plane."
So it’s alright to allow visitors to be exposed to radioactivity but not to let Eric sit in the bloody thing...potty Elfandsafety.
The average price of diesel on UK forecourts hit 141p a litre over the weekend.
Experts predict that by the end of January the cost of diesel will top the 143p a litre peak it reached on May 9 last year.
This will sharply push up the cost of driving for owners of diesel cars, which account for a quarter of all cars on the road in Britain.
Iran’s threat of a blockade in the Strait of Hormuz and shutdowns at refineries contributed to a 4.5p per litre hike in the price that petrol stations pay for diesel between December 19 and January 5, according to figures from RMI Petrol.
The price of unleaded petrol could also overtake its record high of 137.4p per litre at some point this year. Unleaded petrol cost 132.3p a litre at the end of last week.
Sigh...if motors ran on air “they” would tax it because China pollutes so much...
A Madison man is in jail after police said he violated his bail conditions from a previous run-in with the law.
Thirty-year-old Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop is tentatively charged with carrying a concealed knife, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and a probation violation after his arrest Thursday. He remained in jail as of Sunday. Jail records don't list a bail amount or an attorney for him.
He legally changed it to Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop in October. He was arrested in another Madison park last April after police found a loaded handgun in his backpack.
Court records show his previous name was Jeffrey Drew Wilschke
No wonder he changed it.....
The Engrish language is thriving-sort of.
Not bad; they would probably get an A* at CGSE level....
Here are a few reminders.
According to Australia's Channel 9, Erin Langworthy, fell into the Zambezi River on New Year's Eve after the rope snapped on her bungee descent.
As her friends looked on aghast, the 22-year-old managed to free her still bound legs and swim to safety through the crocodile-infested waters.
"I think it is definitively a miracle that I survived," Miss Langworthy told the television station.
The lucky survivor spent a week in hospital, but was not seriously injured in the fall, Channel 9 reported.
Bet some poo came out.....
That’s it: I’m orf to snap up a fifteen squid computer.
