Nuffink to do with me guv

If you've arrived here expecting to find the ramblings of a right-wing fruit-loop then you're in the wrong place.

If you really must read the Luton loony then he can be found here. Though I might suggest (but I would, wouldn't I) that the photos on my site might be rather better for your blood pressure and general sense of well-being.

There's only one position to adopt with fundamentalists, of any flavour: A pox on all of their houses.

Pretty pictures

I've replaced the photo of the day (which being rather large made it hard to see if anything new had been posted) with some scrolling thumbnails (above)

The code is still being tweaked, and more images are yet to be added, but mouse over pauses the display and clicking on any of the pictures will take let you see more.

You did know there were lots of wonderful photos on this site didn't you? No! Then you should take a look.

So there I was

Browsing a blog, as you do. And that led me on to another blog. Where the author said they had recently been here.

Since, up until then, the writer had had some interesting things to say, I thought I'd take a peek at the site.

OMG. I don't think another blogger has gone downhill in my estimation quite so quickly. Now I know that Mercuns are a bit strange at the best of time. And there really isn't much to do in Little Town, Hicksville. And I suppose it's not quite as scary as my previous Sad Site Of The Day but even so…

They cannot be serious, as J McEnroe used to say. A "Plunger Lunger" competition?! With prizes donated by the local hardware store??!! AND an "Uuug-lee Hawaiian Shirt Contest???!!!

And the really scary thing is that more than 130,000 people went to last year's event. The fact that they have a "Parade of Fools" event does seem rather apt.

Sad Site Of The Day

http://www.sandalandsoxer.co.uk/home.htm

So toe-curlingly bad it's almost addictive. You can't resist scrolling down to see if it gets any worse (and it does!)

Dog sitting

I have fond memories of Lils (but not of Hils).

Getting up at the crack of dawn (or, more often, being woken up by a barking bundle of energy who didn't want to be cooped up a moment longer).

The way she looked at me excitedly: "Please Sir, can we go out NOW?"

The way she knew that when I reached for my trainers her wish was about to be granted

She strained at the leash. She was still a little girl at heart. But she was growing up fast; learning to obey and understanding what the rules were. Until we had crossed the road and walked through the churchyard she had to behave.

Then I would set her free. To bound across the fields. And chase birds and rabbits. All of the time having fun. While keeping half an eye on me so she knew just how far she could go as she raced hither and thither.

When it was time to head for home she would sit while I hooked the rope back on to her collar. Because, back on the path, rules had to be obeyed.

But she'd still pull like a train on the road back home through the village. Because she knew we would return to bacon butties or sausage sandwiches. And she'd sit at the end of the kitchen counter with her wonderful liquid eyes.

"Please Sir. Dry biscuit is so dull. Tomato ketchup is so much more tasty..."

She undoubtedly "topped from the bottom". But she was adorable. And trusting. And loyal. Unlike the so-called sub I was dog-sitting with.

The moral of the tale? Man's best friend is...

Working too hard???

Just the thing to brighten up a Bank holiday weekend

Stress at work costs economy £100bn a year, says Mind

Excessive stress at work is causing an epidemic of depression and anxiety, costing the British economy about £100bn a year in lost output...

Staff work 14.3m days for free

Firms will receive £1.2bn-worth of free work from their staff this year because they will not take up all their holiday entitlement...

Markets, fairs or car boot sales suggestions needed

My partner and I have a range of items that we think would sell well to people interested in arts / crafts / pagan / homeopathic / green / alternative lifestyle / and similar spheres. The sort of things that would not look out of place at Camden / Greenwich / Spitalfields markets.

Except getting a stall at one of those markets is a) difficult and b) expensive. Especially as, at this stage, we just want to test the market for a few weeks.

Having done a bit of brain-storming we started to wonder whether there were any "up-market" car boot sales, country fairs or alternative markets that might be worth trying.

Ideally:
On a Sunday. All day would be good. Afternoon would be better than morning. We don't really want to have to get up at 3am to be on-site by 6am.
Within an hour or so's drive of central / east London.
Minimal fees. Say £25-30 for a spot that lets us put up a couple of trestle tables. We don't need any power or facilities. Just a chunk of space. And parking (which need not be adjacent to the pitch). Outdoor is fine.
Minimal formalities. No long-term contract or commitment. Just book a slot, turn up, pay our fee, and see how it goes. If we think it works we'd like a slot the following week. But if it doesn't then we won't.

All bright ideas, suggestions and off-the-wall thoughts welcome.

Provding you don't say ebay or sell online. We're already exploring that. And we're pretty certain that having a physical presence rather than a virtual one will work better for this particular element.
