Health and happiness!!

ladies stretching
black labs

This has been taken in part from todays Sunday Telegraph.
Just in time for the New Year , we have discovered a useful new concept: the resolution-lite. Reports say that some obliging scientists have discovered that "pottering about" is good for burning off calories. Another group of obliging medical experts say that more people, particularly men in their forties (ME), are risking serious injury by entering the triathlon, or other extreme sport (HELLO)?!

So here are some timely suggestions for 2008:

Set aside 20 mins a day for some serious loitering, just wandering about. Re-tie your shoe laces twice a day, the bending down works wonders! Burn off those calories by blinking. Try stretching by putting the whisky bottle on a higher shelf. Make the sacrifice and switch to dark chocolates. Tone up your thigh muscles by carrying more loose change.

Happy New Year!!

smarty pants

donkeysWe had a bit of fun in the local this lunchtime.It was a big day in the horse racing year, the Welsh Grand National. Keith rolled up and joined in. Also in attendance were Nikki, Charlie(not the peke), Steve and moi. The idea was to pick a horse in each of the televised races and put £1.00 down. If no-one won, it was nearest the winner. Nikki cleaned up after the first roll-over.

Tomorrow we go for the roll-over (I won the penultimate race), no-one won the last.

xmas girls

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my bloggie friends. Especially those who have helped me with this HTML crap, I will be forever grateful.


Christmas in our house is not a joyous affair these days, so we wander down the garden and through the magic gate that leads to my crazy 'sisters'', and her equally crazy(Welsh) husband. They treat us to a superb lunch,(we supply the vino), and I try to get just drunk enough so I can still walk. Then it's back home for a snooze........perfect!!

Joke Tuesday. Double bill.

It was the happiest day of my life. We arrived at church,she was waiting at the altar. I walked up the aisle, kissed her on the cheek, smiled and then closed the f*cking lid!


Jack & Jill were just married. Jack took his trousers off and told Jill to try them on. Jill said, " they're too big. Jack says,"exactly! I wear the trousers in this marriage".

Jill said,"try my knickers on". Jack said,"I'll never get into them!"
She said, "EXACTLY! And if you don't change your attitude, you never will!!"

Dead Man Wheeling, R.I.P. Me!

delivery van

I am a dead man walkingwheeling. Di, our beloved landlady let slip a little bit of information that yours truly latched onto.

The beer monster asked for two pints of Pedigree and a packet of crisps.
'That reminds me', says Di. 'The crisp and sweet delivery man is coming today, and I love climbing on his wagon to see what he's got for me!'

I did't get to the pub on Monday because some tw*t rang up and said his company had taken over the servicing contract for all of Leicestershires wheelchair users. I've had mine for 7 years, and nobody has asked to service it before. I said he could have a look.
"What time?" I asked.
"Between 12.30 and 4.00pm." Great, there's my boozing gone. Do you know what time he turned up? F*cking 4.05pm!! He twizzled the wheels, rattled it a bit and gave me a certificate. TWO minutes! And he saved me money.....the bastard! Why can't these people turn up within an hour of the first time? I could have made the pub, and not got a bollocking off the landlord for affecting his takings. I think he should sue.

Joke Tuesday.

Policeman on a horse says to a little girl on her bike, "Did Santa get you that?"
"Yes," She replies.

"Well tell him to put a reflector on it next year." He fined her £5.00.

The girl looked up and said, "Nice horse, you get that from Santa?"

"Yes", he chuckles, I sure did.

"Well", she said, "Next year get him to put the pr*ck under the horse!!"

Joke Wednesday

Ok, so I forgot yesterday!

The Tesco Doctor.

One day,in line at the works cafeteria, Jack says to Mike behind him,
"My elbow hurts like hell. I suppose I'd better see a doctor!"

Mike replies; "Listen mate, don't waste your time at the surgery. There's a diagnostic computer at Tesco. Just give it a urine sample and the computer will tell you what's wrong,and what to do about it. It takes ten seconds and only costs £5.00.....a lot quicker than a doctor and you get Clubcard points".

So Jack collects a urine sample and takes it to Tesco. He deposits £5.00 in the machine and the computer lights up and asks for the sample. He pours it in and waits.

Ten seconds later,the printout arrives:

"You have tennis elbow. Soak your arm in warm water and avoid heavy activity. It will improve in two weeks".

That evening whilst thinking how amazing this new technology was, Jack began wondering if the computer could be fooled.

He mixed some tap water, a stool sample from his dog, urine samples from his wife and daughter, and 'pleasured himself' into the mixture for good measure.

Jack took the mixture back to Tesco and paid his £5.00. The print-out was as follows:

1) Your tap water is too hard, get a softener.
2) Your dog has ringworm.
3) Your daughter has a cocaine habit.
4) Your wife is pregnant. Twins. They aren't yours, get a lawyer.
5) And if you don't stop wanking your elbow will never get better!

Thank-you for shopping at Tesco.

Keith, a 70-year-old, extremely wealthy divorcee, shows up at the "Merrie Monk" pub with a breathtakingly beautiful and very sexy 25 year-old blonde who amazes everybody with her youthful sex appeal and charm and who hangs over Keith’s arm and listens intently to his every word.

His mates in the pub are all aghast. At the very first chance, they corner him and ask, “Keith, how’d you get the trophy girlfriend?”

Keith replies, “Girlfriend? She’s my wife!”

John G is knocked over, and asked, “So, Grumpy, how did you persuade her to marry you?”

“I lied about my age”, Keith says.

“What, did you tell her you were only 50?”

Keith smiles and says, “No, I told her I was 90, with a dicky heart.”

Global Taxing!

Right! We have hundreds of politicians and other associated hangers-on/wankers flying out to Bali for a conference on climate change. How eco-friendly is that? Five star hotels, all expenses paid! Oh, the luxury.

It has been calculated that this conference on "saving" the planet has chucked the same amount of CO2 out as Chad does in a year!

What a load of crap!!

Hello Folks!

I haven't gone far, I still read and comment on blogs where I can, so just be careful what you say!

Don't say too much John, because I could write a few tales about what goes on in that pub that you daren't tell anyone... For instance, didn't I see Di (landlady) threaten you at lunchtime? You thought I wasn't looking! Oh yes, and the episode concerning the dead partridges springs to mind as well.

No, nice people, my blog isn't closed. It's only a temporary thing because I have several other websites that need my attention. I do have two other blogs that I write to under a nom-de-plume (pen name, for the non-French speakers) which seem to attract a lot of hits. They are not on Blogger because I don't have a Google account. As Sandy says, we will not be pressurised into opening one either.

Babs - Maybe I can't yell at you from "Smithy Lane" at the moment but I can yell at you from Johns page, but being such an outstandingly polite gentleman I wont.

Pat - My image as a Grumpy Old Git on "Meonline" doesn't seem to attract many visitors so I'm thinking of changing it from "Smithy Lane" to "Sweet Old Gentleman Who Loves Puppy Dogs, Pussy Cats and Creepy Crawlies" (Why did I suddenly get a mental picture of John then?)

That's all folks, back to your own beds.

Ladies, don't say I don't think of you. Di has planned an extravaganza for you all, as a Christmas treat! The band are local lads and I have heard they are very good. As for the Ann Summers party.......We're barred!!

Poorly tummy.

I had a kebab last night(the same place as usual), and it was very nice. When I got up this morning, all was fine. I had my breakfast,then at 10ish my usual mug of coffee.

Dad took me to the pub at lunch. I started to feel a bit uncomfortable half-way through the 1st pint, you know,a rumbling belly. I realised I wasn't going to finish the drink safetly so I rang Dad up to come and get me as I didn't want any embarrassing mishaps in the bar. I have been drinking water all day, and feel a little better now,but not perfect.

I will see what tomorrow brings............

Joke Tuesday.

Long one this, but worth it!!

This got the whole of Sydney laughing.

Just imagine sitting in traffic on your way to work and hearing this.
Many people DID hear this on the FOX FM morning show.
The DJ's play a game where they award great prizes. The game is called 'Mate Match'. The DJ's call someone at work and ask if they are married or seriously involved with someone. If the contestant answers 'yes', he or she is asked 3 random yet highly personal questions. The person is asked to give the name of their partner with phone number. I their partner answers those same 3 questions correctly, they both get a prize.

The Harbour City fell apart at this, read on.

DJ: 'Hey! This is Ed on FOX-FM. Have you heard of 'Mate Match'?'

Contestant(laughing) 'Yes'.

DJ: 'Great! Then you know the prize, if you win is a trip to the Gold Coast. What's your name? First name only please.'

Contestant: 'Brian.'

DJ: Are you married?'

Brian: 'Yes'

DJ: Thanks, now I need your wifes first name.'

Brian: 'Sara.'

DJ: 'Is Sara at work?'

Brian: She'll kill me for this.'

DJ: 'Stay with me, Brian! Is she at work?'

Brian: (laughing) 'Yes, she's at work.'

DJ: Ok, first question- when was the last time you had sex?'

Brian: About 8 o'clock this morning.'

DJ: Atta boy, Brian.'

Brian:(laughing sheepishly)'Well......'

DJ: 'Question #2- How long did it last?'

Brian: About 10 minutes.'

DJ: Wow! You really want that trip, huh? No one would have said that otherwise.'

Brian: Yeah, the trip would be good.'

DJ: Ok, final question. Where did you have sex at 8 o' clock this morning?'

Brian: (laughing hard) 'I, ummmm, I well.....'

DJ: 'This sounds good, where was it at?'

Brian: 'Her mum was in the shower, so it was on the kitchen table.'

DJ: Atta boy!'

Okay folks, I'll put Brian on hold and get Sara on the phone.

DJ: 'Hello, is that Sara?'

Sara: 'Yes, who's speaking?'

DJ: 'Sara, thi is Ed from FOX-FM. We are live on air and i've been talking to Brian for a while now.'

Sara: (laughing) 'A while?'

DJ: 'Yes, a while. He is on the line with us. He knows not to give any answers away or you'll lose.
Sooooo, do you know the rules of 'Mate Match'?'


DJ: 'Good!'


Sara:(laughing) 'Brian, what the hell are you up to?'

Brian: (laughing) 'Just answer the questions honestly,ok? Be completely honest.'

Sara:(laughing) 'Yes.'

DJ: Alright, when did you last have sex?'

Sara: 'Oh God, Brian....uh, this morning, about 8.'

DJ: 'Good, next question. How long did it last?'

Sara: '12, 15 minutes maybe.'

DJ: 'Hmmmmmm. That's close enough. One last question, get it right and it's the Gold Coast for you both.

DJ: Where did you have it?'

Sara: 'OH MY GOD, BRIAN!! You didn't tell them that did you?'

Brian: 'Just tell him the truth honey.'

Sara: 'Well....'

DJ: 'Come on Sara.....where did you have it?'

Sara:'Up the arse........'

They called an ambulance for the DJ, and traffic accidents rose by 40%!!

Pub news.

We had an autopsy in the pub today. (or was it a post mortem)?

What is wrong with our football team? Everybody was blaming the manager, and admittingly he did make a couple of selection and strategical errors last night, but in the end it is down to the players. Once the game starts the manager has minimal input until half-time,or substitutions arise, whichever comes first.

Players who must be/are good at their trade, command astranomical wages, should,as a team be able to adapt to the oppositions game plan and play accordingly. But no. What we saw was an abject lack of on-field leadership. The captain was useless. The rest of them were useless.

Verdict: Sporting suicide.

Roll on the Motorbike racing!

This is getting harder, as the jokes I've been getting lately are, let's say risque. But here goes, and if you are offended........Sorry (ish).

Little boy having bathtime with mum says, "What's that hairy thing?" Mum says, "It's my sponge."

"Oh, yeah, Auntie Kim has one too, I've seen her washing Dads' face with it."

I have been somewhat lax with my posting of late. I apologise for not filling you with mirth/woe.(Depends how you read it). The reason is HTML. I am trying my best, as Mr.Farty will testify. I have been getting some serious help from Farty, and I thank him from the heart of my bottom bottom of my heart. But, to date, it appears I am thick.(Keith,If you say a word, I will get one of the lads to shove a fully laden sprout stalk where the sun doesn't shine).

I will conquer this ineptitude eventually, but it will take time.

There will be a joke Tuesday, but then the serious stuff starts! Farty, beware, the e-mails could increase.

See you all on Wednesday!

I've just been watching the news. They were going on about the new Eurostar rail-link from St. Pancras. A marvellous piece of work, and long overdue, but what puzzles me is the statements on the news, and in the press, that; "Europe just got closer".

How can this be? Who moved, us or them?

Suggestions please.

Joke Tuesday.

Prince Charles decided to take up jogging.

Everyday, he'd jog past a hooker standing on the same street corner. He learned to brace himself as he approached her for what was almost certain to follow.

"One hundred and fifty pounds!" she'd shout.

"No! Five pounds!" He would fire back, just to shut her up.

This ritual between him and the hooker became a daily occurrence.

One day, Camilla decided she wanted to accompany her husband on his daily jog.

As they neared the hooker's corner, Prince Charles realised she'd shout her usual £150 offer, and Camilla would wonder what he'd been doing on all his past outings. He figured he'd better have a good explanation for his wife. As they jogged past he averted his eyes from the hooker.

Then, from the corner, the hooker yelled,

"See what you get for £5 you tight bastard?!"

Right! This blog of mine doesn't often go along the political tack, but this made my blood boil.

We, the taxpayer, are funding two completely pointless wars, Iraq and Afghanistan, to the tune of billions of pounds. Niether will be won, and only succeed in increasing the threat of Islamic terrorism.

In OUR country, along the coastline, especially East Anglia where coastal defences are an absolute necessity our government has decided to stop building the defences and let the sea claim the land. This at the price of coastal communities, who will lose everything, and have to be re-located because protecting them is deemed not cost-effective!!

I know where I'd rather the money go!!

That is all.

Now, everyone who has read this Blog knows my incapability to understand HTML. I'd be better off trying to learn Mandarin. But, I have spent the last 3 hours on my other blog(the practice one), trying my hardest. I'm reading the book Keith gave me, 'HTML in easy steps', yeah, righto! I didn't realise I was SOOOOO thick, but I don't know where to start. It's just gobbly-de-gook to me! I tried Brom, his site looked really good, but no, not a f*cking clue!

I think we may have a replacement for Trigger.

Our lovely landlady Di, it seems is prone to a few 'blonde' moments.

Yesterday she was shopping at the local Aldi store. She stopped along an aisle, looking at various things, loaded some stuff into the trolley, and set off around the store. Only it wasn't her trolley she was loading up! Somehow she managed to find her trolley and unload her shopping without the other person noticing!

This. I'm afraid, has to be said. No doubt some of my lady fans readers will find this highly amusing!

Autumn colours.

The Autumn colours this year are as good as i've seen them since we moved here 34 years ago. This was taken from upstairs, and shows the colours off a treat.

This, is obviously a ground floor shot. Normally, at this time of year all the leaves are down, and Dad gets his sweeping-up head on. Makes great compost!

I don't know why the house roofs look so blue though. Any tips?

Thursday, 1 November 2007

Pub news...ish!

Still no Trigger, I don't know who, if anyone has upset him, but it's been impossible to since i've known him.

Anyway, Di, the boss lady has this Pekenese (a canine push-me-pull-you), and the other day it was upstairs with her. She was on the phone, when a movement caught her eye. Her pillow was meandering across the bed! She called Jez(boss man) up to see what was happening. Charlie, the Peke had crawled inside the pillow cover, and unable to get out, carried on walking. The edge of the bed loomed just as Jez caught him.

And they didn't video it!!!!

Half an hour later he calls to find out what the delay is. She says:

Strange names.

I was watching the news earlier when they started interviewing a Dr. LOTZOF. This got me thinking. What's the strangest/funniest name you've heard? You don't need to know them, but the name must be real.

A friend of mine maintains to this day he knew a Hugh JARSOLL!

So, come on, think. You don't have to know them, but they must be real, and if anyone, and I mean ANYONE says DEADWOOD, they're in big trouble!!

For all the lovely ladies who read my blog!

Now you're all thinking what the f**k now! What has he got now?

Well ladies, this is just for you. You will see I am not someone who systematically takes the piss out of the fairer sex. (You can't wait for this, can you?).


Three men and three women are travelling by train to a football match. At the station, the three men each buy a ticket and watch as the three women buy just one ticket.

'How are the three of you going to travel on one ticket?', asks one of the men.

'Watch and learn', came the reply.

They all board the train. The three men all sit down, whereas the women all cram into the toilet.

The conductor comes round collecting tickets. He knocks on the toilet door and says, 'Ticket please'. The door opens a fraction and a ticket is passed over. The conductor carries on.

The men see this happen and agree it was a clever idea; so after the game, they decide to do the same thing on the way back and save some money.

When they reach the station they buy a single ticket for the return trip but see, to their astonishment, that the three women don't buy a ticket at all!

'How are you three going to travel without a ticket?' asks one perplexed man.

'Watch and learn', comes the answer.

When they board the train the men cram themselves into the toilet.

Just after departure, one of the women gets up and walks over to the gents toilet, knocks on the door, and says...........'Tickets please'.

Bask in your glory, I'll be back !!!

Bugger, tagged !

The ever so slightly mad Karmyn has tagged me with this. What would I do if I was rich and famous, what would my demands be?

  1. Firstly, a Swedish au pair, preferably a practicing nymphomaniac.
  2. Then, a chef to save Dad cooking!
  3. A chauffeur to ferry me to the pub and back. (Already got that!). Thanks Dad!
  4. A cleaner to save Dad doing it. Maybe the au pair could double up?
  5. Another au pair to cover for the first ones holidays. (I am not too harsh on employees).
  6. A black Labrador. I really miss my last one!
  7. Visit all my bloggie friends! That would be tops!!
  8. Get my body functioning again, like it used to.
  9. Nothing else, I am pretty happy with my lot.

I thought I was famous !

Nikki has just started a new round, and in learning said round had to go out with the outgoing person to learn the ropes.

On this particular day they had to go and deliver to a place called Croft quarry. This is a working quarry, and as such is required by law to have a wheel wash for the lorries leaving the site. Nikki always has the window down, but the driver didn't tell her about the wheel wash!

Straight in, all over her, soaked............I didn't laugh!

I'M BACK !!!!!!!!!!

Joyous singing and dancing. At last my beautiful header is back!

Where did it come from, you might ask.

I don't know, but I have a sneaky idea.

Pub update.

We still have no sign of Trigger, but my hopes for the survival of 'PUBLOG' were surprisingly given a boost today.

Di, the LANDLADY, had made some freshly filled rolls, (cobs here), and bought them out to put in the small fridge on the bar. Now the rolls are usually stuffed full of various fillings, and because it seems like Di uses a chainsaw to 'slice' the cheese or ham, etc, they normally require a snakes ability to dislocate ones mouth to be able to bite them. Good value for £1.20.

However, today she spotted two in the fridge that looked a little sparse on the filling side. All wrapped up nicely with cling-film, except there wasn't anything in them!!

And she TOLD ME!!!!!!!!!!!

Mrs. Trigger?

Woman goes into a pet shop to buy a parrot. They are priced at £300, £150, and £15.

"Why is the last one so cheap, he looks the best?"

"He used to live in a brothel", replies the owner.

"I dont mind ," she says, "I'll take him".

When she gets home, the parrot says, "F*ck me, not another new brothel!"

The woman laughs.

When her daughters arrive home the parrot says, "F*ck me! Two new whores!"

The girls laugh.

Dad arrives, and the parrot says,

"F*ck me! Pete, I haven't seen you for ages!!"

My biking years.

This is for a bloggie friend, and for me, as it bought back so many happy memories. It is also dedicated to Roger, RIP mate! Yamaha RD200, 1979. My first bike, aged 17. I skipped the moped stage because Mum wouldn't let me have one!

Honda CB400-4 F1 1980. A modern classic now, this was a cracking bike, my second . I Fell off this once, in the next village to us. The bloke whose hedge I went through wasn't very chuffed the next day! He never did find out, i'd scarpered!!

Yamaha DT175, 1981. This was my first foray into off-road bikes for road use. I got the bug, hence the manic thing below.

Suzuki PE400, 1982. This is the most fun you can have on a bike! Totally banzai, road legal, and a true enduro bike. Power wheelies up to 4th gear, eats Yamaha RD350-LCs for breakfast 0-60mph!

Suzuki GS550-E 1984. This was a nice bike, bullet proof engine. Only fell off this once! My fault of course. Too fast, molten tarmac, no front wheel grip, result? Ditch !!

Honda CB900-F2.1986. Cracking bike, smooth and quick for its time!

Preparations for 2 weeks in the South of France. Arcachon here we come! 580 miles from Cherbourg in 10 hours, stopping for fuel every 150 miles! FUN ! Do you recognize the bloke with hair tending his bike?

Mortified !

I know I've given Di, the landlady a bit of grief over her push-me-pull-you dog, but she hit me with a reply that shocked me to the core.

They are having a Hallo'een disco with a fancy dress theme. One of the lads asked if I would be dressing up. I replied that I would come as I was. To which Di said,

"You'll win hands down!!"

*WalkWheel into that, why don't I !!*

Political crap

I don't usually do politics, it seems far too contentious for a blog. Especially this one! But as I tippy-type away, I am listening to a programme on BBC2, called Why Democracy? The Ministry of Truth.

Proposing his own Misrepresentation of the People bill, Richard Symons listens to Jack Straw, Harriet Harmon and Lord Falconer tell him why it's unrealistic for politicians to be held accountable for what they tell the electorate.

Am I missing something here ??

Spanish Goth inadvertently got me all wound up and unnecessary when I read his last post.

This climate change/global warming crap has got really out of control. What a brilliant way to tax the crap out of us all. Based on a load of unsubstantiated data that over half the worlds leading meteorologists and climateologists say is rubbish.The majority seem to say that the planet is going through a normal cyclical period. Global temperatures , taken since 1998, show a slight cooling trend.

So Gordon Brown and his cronies are going to make standard light bulbs a thing of history by 2011, and make us all buy energy saving bulbs, which cost 3 times as much, and don't like being turned on and off too often, (they fail), great! Who's going to pay for all my new lampshades?

These bulbs are made using mercury, which the EU has just stopped our barometer makers from using, in case it gets into landfill. Where are the dud energy saving bulbs going to go?

And, whilst China is opening a new coal-fired power station every 4 days, this is going to save the planet?

Which planet do these people live on?

Joke Tuesday. (nearly forgot)

A little girl finds her dog dead with its ' legs in the air and asks her Dad why it is like that. Dad explains that it has died, and is like that so Jesus can pick it up and take it to heaven.

The next day she says, "Dad, Mum nearly died today. She was on her back with her legs in the air shouting , "Oh, Jesus, i'm coming." And if the window cleaner hadn't been holding her down, we'd have lost her!

Goth's challenge.

I have to make a story from the song titles of an album. ( It's a return favour).

"Right", said God, "I'm fed up with this sh*t dress rehearsal rag, it sucks. Adam, stop touching Eve up , and pay attention."

Adam, " I wasn't doing anything wrong, just fitting her for your famous blue raincoat."

God, "Oh, for f*cks sake, that piece of crap is soooo much last years, man!"

Adam, "But it's the one I made with those diamonds in the mine."

God was a bit pissed off with all this stalling, so he made Eve pregnant, and being God rushed the pregnancy through. Cain and Abel were soon born into this world that only took six days to make , don't forget.

"Eve, pick those f*cking apples up, or there'll be an avalanche of them soon.

"Piss off dad, there's a f*cking snake in the tree!"

God said,"Don't you talk to me like that, you tart!

Adam, "you see Eve, love calls you by your name."

God, "I suppose there'll be another dress rehearsal rag now?"

Eve, "No, Joan of Arc's cancelled, her agent said she has another burning issue."

Adam and Eve in unison, "Sing another song , boys."



Beer contains female hormones.

Last month, The University of Lesotho said scientists revealed that beer contains female hormones.

Men should take a good look at their beer consumption. The theory is that hops contain Phytoestrogens and that by drinking too much beer, men turn into women.

To test the theory, 100 men drank 8 pints each. Within 1 hour it was then observed that 100% of the test subjects developed the following symptoms:

1. Argued over nothing
2. Refused to apologize when obviously wrong
3. Talked excessively without making sense
4. Became overly emotional
5. Couldn't drive
6. Failed to think rationally
7. Gained weight
8.Had to sit down when urinating

No further testing was deemed necessary.

I had a dream.

A couple of days ago I got tagged by Spanish Goth, he's mad, as you might well know! Anyway, I have to describe a dream. I do dream occaisionally, but never really recall much. Until last night!

I don't know what sparked this one off.

I was on my motorbike, a Honda CB900 F2. I have no idea where I was, nor why I was where I didn't know where I was. (Where was I)? Oh, yes, hurtling along down meandering country lanes, covered in smoooooth black tarmac (the road, not me), when a wheelchair suddenly appeared in front of me. I slammed the brakes on and took evasive action, just missing the chair. I stopped and looked back at the tw*t in the wheelchair in the middle of the road. He was grinning. It was me!

I have never had a dream before with the wheelchair in it.

I guess I was pushing my luck 20 years ago!

Joke Tuesday: Natal Curry Contest!

This is 20 times longer than my usual posts, but is soooooo funny it will,at some stage make you laugh out loud!

If you have lived in Natal, apparently you will know about this.
They actually have a Curry Cook-off about June/July.

Judge#3(Frank) was an inexperienced food critic visitng from America, and had been invited by the other two judges (Natal Indians), to join the panel. The food wouldn't be too spicy, and besides the lager was free.

Here are the scorecards:

Judge#1-A little too much tomato. amusing kick.
Judge#2-Nice smooth tomato flavour. Very mild.
Judge#3(Frank)-Holy shit, what the hell is this stuff? You could remove paint with that. Took two beers to put the flames out. I hope that's the worst one. These people are crazy.

Judge#1-Smoky, with a hint of chilli. Slight tang.
Judge#2-Exciting BBQ flavour. Needs boosting.
Frank - Keep this away from children. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me the Heimlich manoeuvre! More lager.

Judge#1- Excellent firehouse curry. Great kick.
Judge#2- A bit salty. Good use of chilli.
Frank - Call 911. I've located uranium pills. My nose feels like I've been snorting drain cleaner. Get me some beer before I ignite! I'm getting pissed.

Judge#1- Meaty, strong curry. Very impressive.
Judge#2- Average beef curry, could use more tomato. Chilli peppers make a strong statement.
Frank - My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off me, I cannot focus anymore. I farted and four people behind me needed medical treatment. It pisses me off as the other two judges tell me to stop screaming. Screw them. More beer.

Judge#1- Mediocre.
Judge#2- Ho hum, tedious. (I should note that I am a little cocerned about Frank)
Frank - You could put a grenade in my mouth and pull the pin and I wouldn't feel it. I've lost the sight in one eye, and the world sounds like rushing water. My shirt is covered with curry which slid unnoticed from my mouth. My pants are full of lava to match my shirt. At least during the autopsy they'll know what killed me!

Judge#1- The perfect end. Not too bold.
Judge#2- A good finale. Well balanced. Sorry most of it was lost when Frank farted, passed out, fell over and pulled the curry pot on top of himself. I don't think he'll make it. I wonder how he'd have reacted to a really hot curry?
Frank- No report.

Pub news.

The pub hasn't been the same without Trigger. We still don't know what's going on. One idiot, who has become something of a regular came in. Guesses in comments!

Nikki, who you have been acquainted with before has a horse called Larry(?). Anyway, she recently moved Larry(I think the horse is gay) to a new pasture, last week I believe. This weekend, the farmer is holding a WW2 re-enactment, bombs, cannons, guns, tanks and Spitfires and Messerschmidts flying around(as aircraft do). Nikki was a bit concerned that the noise might upset him, but he seemed alright, which was just as well as her B/F is in Germany on a jollypiss-up, and wouldn't have been around to help anyway. But all is calm, and a couple of Stellas later, she was serenity personified!

She reads this sometimes so I have to be REALLY careful!

Would you call a horse Larry?

Still no Trigger.

I am at a loss as to where Trigger is. If I find out he's alright, then he will get a bollocking for ruining my blog! If he has problems, he will have my support.
Either way, it would be good to hear some nonsense again!

Problem in the pub tomorrow. England.v. Israel. Football, BBC1 5.00pm kick off.

England. v. USA . Rugby World Cup ITV1 5.00pm kick off.

Ten words, from Goth.

God sent the Archangel Gabriel to sort out a dispute kicking off in Egypt. The Pharoahs were playing hell about people raiding their pyramids.
"Look, Gabriel, tell them to stop f*cking about, and while you're down there tell Harrison Ford and his Dad to piss off. And tell that director bloke yawping into that loudspeaker, that if he doesn't shut the f*ck up, I'm going to sellotape his gob shut, noisy tw*t!"

"Gabriel, you haven't shut that loud speaker up yet, I can hear that arsehole Peter Kay singing 'show me the way to armadillo' Turn the f*cker off!"

The next day dawns bright and sunny, hot in fact. Gabriel is a bit pissed off because the chocolate he was given by god has melted, and just staring at the gloopy mass on the plate is making the saliva pour from his mouth.

Completely fed up, he picks up his trombone, and starts playing. No sound! Strange. On closer inspection, someone has covered the mouthpiece with latex.

He notices a strange smell after taking the rubbery latex off, but the trombone still wont play. Why has god put gorgonzola in the trombone?

Because he's a cheesy faggot!! Guess the 10 words!

10 disparate words.

I have been set a challenge by the Goth He has given me ten words with which I have to form a coherent (ish) post. Go to his site, and read yesterdays post, and you'll see what I'm up against!

Funny joke!

Trigger hasn't been in this weekend, which is odd, (bit like him really), so my blogging content regarding the pub is somewhat diminished. As a result, you get a rather funny joke sent from a friend of mine.

A lonely widow, aged 70, decided that it was time to get married again.
She put an advert in the local paper that read:

Husband wanted: Must be in my age group (70's), must not beat me, must not play around & must still be good in bed!!!! All applicants, please apply in person.

On the second day, she heard the doorbell. Much to her dismay, she opened the door to see a grey-haired man in a wheelchair. He had no arms or legs.

The woman said, "You're not expecting me to cosider you, are you? Just look at you! No legs!

The old man smiled,"Therefore i can't play around!"

She replied, "You have no arms either!"

"So I can't beat you." he said.

She raised an eyebrow and asked, "Are you still good in bed?"

The old man leaned back in his chair, smiled, and said,

I rang the doorbell, didn't I !?"

Amazingly simple home remedies.

I don't usually like back to back posts, as once people have read the original they rarely return. But Keith didn't tell me he was going to post here, although he has my full permission to. A good post it was too! So, this is to check my theory.

1. If you are choking on an ice cube, don't panic. Simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throat, and presto, the blockage will be instantly removed.

2. Clumsy? Avoid cutting yourself whilst slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them whilst you chop away.

3. For those of you with high blood pressure,simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes. Don't forget a timer!

4. Avoid arguements with the wife about lifting the toilet seat by using the sink.

5. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.

6. If you have a bad cough, take laxatives. Then, you will be afraid to cough!

7. Have toothache? Smash your thumb with a hammer and you will forget the toothache.

Sometimes, we just need to remember what the rules of life really are:

You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct tape.
If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40.
If it shouldn't move and does, use the Duct tape.


1. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.
2. Never pass up the chance to go to the bathroom.
3. If you woke up, congratulations: you get a second chance.
4. And finally, be really nice to your family and friends: you never know when you might need them to empty your bed pan!!

Disgusted !!

About two months ago a very dear friend of our family, of over 30 years, who lived 200 yrds up the road died. The house was empty as her daughter awaited the legal stuff to go through.
On Sunday, some scumbags smashed down the front door and ransacked the place.

What is the matter with this country? We live in a small village. Someone knew that house was empty.

I know what I'd do with the bastards, and it aint pretty!

Joke Tuesday


A Texan gentleman asked a waiter to take a bottle of Merlot to an attractive woman.

The waiter took the bottle over and said, "This is from the gentleman seated over there," indicating the sender.

She regarded the wine for a second, not looking at the man, decided to send a reply note. The waiter duly passed the note on.

It read:
"For me to accept this bottle, you need a Mercedes in your garage, a million dollars in the bank, and 7 inches in your pants."

The reply came back, it read:

"For your information, I have a Ferrari Maranello, a BMW Z8, a Mercedes AMG600, and a Porsche Turbo. Homes in Aspen, Colorado and Miami, and a 10,000 acre ranch in Texas. There is over 20 million dollars in my bank account. But, not even for a beautiful woman like you, would I cut three inches off. Just send the bottle back.

3. Why is learning HTML harder than learning Mandarin ?

4. Where did the word FORMICA come from ?

5. Why am I writing this drivel ?

7. Where do chickens keep their nuggets ?

More questions please, I know I can rely on you!!

Sunday Fun-Time

Guest Blog by Keith

I went to the pub today for a quiet Sunday drink with John, but it turned out to be anything but quiet. Apparently I had just missed Trigger, he went home early to day.

Propping up the bar was the Poacher, the Poacher's Dad, and the Poachers Dad's Brother, and various other dubious regulars. As usual the bar was groaning under the weight of various tit-bits and nibbles so I bought a pint, grabbed a handful of sausage rolls and joined John.

Last Wednesday the Poacher had bagged a load of wild pigeons and his father had cleaned and prepared them for human consumption by "smoking" them, and was selling them in the pub. John very kindly bought me one and explained how to carve and eat it. Apparently there is an art in it. There were a few left and the Poachers Dad was sitting at the bar cutting them up and distributing them around the pub. He offered a bit to the sweet young thing serving behind the bar. She wrinkled her nose up at it and said "No way!", but Poachers Dad persuaded her to put it in her mouth (the pigeon that is!). She went the colour of chalk and promptly spat it out into the waste bin.

I can't understand the youngsters of today, they will eat a fast-food burger that has probably got the complete cow, i.e., lips, nose, eyeballs and testicles in it, but they are revolted by a nice juicy fat pigeon prepared country-style!

The Poacher's Uncle had brought Jess; a vicious little terrier, in today. Now this bitch has an attitude problem insomuch that it hates everything that is human-shaped, except her master of course. She is a little bastard to put it mildly. She bares her teeth and her little beady eyes are ablaze with anger if you even so much as look at her.

Now Nikki, another character in the pub, who is blonde and attractive with a nice figure and wears tight sweat shirts, tight jodphurs and kinky boots (yes, she really does have a horse!) said that she could calm Jess down and stroke her. She has this "if I can break a horse in", she can "break a dog in" type of attitude. She approached Jess and even I could see that this fiend was waiting until she got within snapping distance before attacking. As you can see in the picture that is precisely what happened. Luckily only Nikkis pride was hurt and not her fingers because the "dog-crocodile" was on a short lead.

Sorry about the quality of the photo, John tried to get an action picture, but the dog was too quick. Either that or John's hand was shaking due to sheer terror or he had had too much lager.

As we mean to go on....

Di, battered Trigger with an aluminium tray.

"What was that for?" enquired a puzzled Trigger.

"That's for later on, when you deserve it and I haven't got the tray!"

Trigger asked Bushy, if he was coming out for a cigarette break.

Bushy, "I'm not being seen outside with you, it'll do my cred no good at all!"

The Poachers' brother came in. They had been over to Norfolk, fishing, but there was so much water about that it wasn't worth staying.
Trigger said he was glad he hadn't gone to see them this morning, and in any case he couldn't find the place on his map.

"I'll have to get sat-nav." says Trigger.

"You'd be better off with twat-nav!" came Bushy's reply.

We have a big problem in this country at present. It has been around for some years now.
Why are teenagers shooting each other?

Rhys Jones didn't deserve that. Who does, apart from the lowlife who pulled the trigger. I don't care how young he is, he knew the consequences!

Am I the only one who sees a link with the abolition of corporal punishment in schools, and the coming to prominence of the politically correct brigade?

We have 'lost' a generation, let's not lose another!

This is close to my own heart so I found it hilarious!

Challenge. What's on/above your mantlepiece?

Watercolour of Wells Cathedral.

My late Mums' favourite copper kettle.

The elephant on the beam was my Grans', if you can zoom in on the pic. that is embroidery.

We had the old open fire taken out, as it was getting too much for Dad, messing about clearing it out and lugging coal/logs around. The beam is from the farm house across the road, and dates from 1400. So I make the tree at least 150 years before that!

I don't know why this is here!!


This has come from Di, the landlady.

Yesterday evening she was walking her dog. A car pulled up along side, the window wound slowly down.

"You looking for some business, darling?"

She didn't recognize the car until she got back to the pub.


Large battering! Two in one day!

Trigger v Di.

Showdown today, I think it was a draw on points.

Jez, Di's other half is selling his old Austin Riley. Trigger asked Di, if he was looking for a newer model.

Di: "What are you saying?"

Trigger: "If you got in , he could sell Old Mother Riley too, as a job lot!"

Cue a good battering.

A while later Trigger was talking to one of the lads when Di overheard him say:

"I do the odd miracle you know".

Di: "How about a disappearing act!"

Silly signs

A while ago I posted a couple of daft, pointless road signs, with a prize for the best returns. I had loads of comments but only two photos, so Beccy, and Chris, you will receive a local delicacy. Thanks for taking part.

Joke Tuesday..#2

A very loud, unattractive, hard-faced woman walks into Safeway's with her two kids in tow, screaming obscenities at them all the way through the entrance.

The doorman says, "Good morning and welcome to Safeways, nice children you have. Are they twins?"

The fat ugly woman snarls: "Of course they bloody aren't! That one's nine, and the other's seven. Do they look like twins you dickhead?"

"Absolutely not," replies the doorman, "I just can't believe anyone would shag you twice!"

Joke Tuesday. Double-entendres.

Sob, where's my blog?

  1. Pat Glenn, weightlifting commentator- " And this is the Bulgarian girl. I saw her snatch this morning, and it was amazing!"
  2. New Zealand Rugby commentator- "Andrew Mehrtens loves it when Daryl Gibson comes inside him.
  3. Ted Walsh- Horse racing commentator- "This is a really lovely horse, I once rode her mother."
  4. Harry Carpenter at the Boat race 1977-"Aahh, Isn't that nice. The wife of the Cambridge president is kissing the cox of the Oxford crew."
  5. US PGA commentator- "One of the reasons Arnold Palmer is playing so well is that, before each tee shot, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them....Oh my God, what have I just said??"
  6. Carenza Lewis about finding food in the Middle Ages on 'Time Team Live' said: "You'd eat beaver if you could get it."
  7. A female news anchor who, the day after it was supposed to have snowed and didn't, turned to the weatherman and asked, "So Bob, where's that eight inches you promised me last night?" Not only did HE have to leave the set, so did half the crew, they were laughing so much!
  8. Steve Ryder covering the US Masters- "Seve felt much better today after that 69 yesterday."
  9. Clair Frisby on Look North, talking about a jumbo hot dog said: "There's nothing like a big hot sausage inside you on a cold night like this."
  10. Mike Hallett discussing missed snooker shots on Sky Sports: "Stephen Hendry jumps on Steve Davis's misses every chance he gets."

11. Michael Buerk on watching Phillipa Forrester cuddle up to a male astronomer for warmth during BBC1's UK eclipse coverage remarked: "They seem cold, they're rubbing each other, and he's only come in his shorts."

Favourites on a postcard!!

Off to try and find my pet blog.

Two things.

Firstly, my thanks to Shaz for the award, I am honoured!

Secondly, what does the landlady do when Trigger tells her and Sharon that the reason he is quiet is that he can't get a word in edgeways with two f**king women yawping behind the bar?

Answer, she comes round and batters him!! (I can't tell you what he actually said, I'm a gentleman you know!)

I can't wait for joke Tuesday!!

The Funny Farm.

I swear this place gets worse.

Main characters. Bush.

There are tables outside the front of the pub for the smoking brigade. ( not me, no siree).

Trigger goes out for a cigarette.

Bush:"Landlord, you want him round the back. All the potential customers take one look at him and drive past. They think it's an old folks home!"

The landlord goes out to tell Trigger what Bush has recommended.

Two fingers appear at the window.

Trigger comes back in to finish his pint.

Trigger: The women would flock in if i'd taken the viagra tablet.

Stunned silence, then much mirth! Good old Trigger!

The biker!

I discovered today that someone I know from the pub has been reading this tome of nonsense.

So, Mr. Shenton, get rid of that girlie bike you've got, and get a PROPER bike!!

And feel free to leave a comment.

BTW, Sharon, who has looked after the pub since Monday, whilst Di & Jez have been away has done a sterling job, even belting someone for accidentally tripping her up . He was pissed apparently!

Trigger nearly caught a right hander from Sharon today.......He came in! Sharon is not used to seeing Trigger on a week-day afternoon, so it came as something of a shock to her.

Me: "All right Trigger?"

Sharon:"What the f**k are you doing here?"

Trigger:"Pedigree please." (Pedigree is the local brew).

Strange look to me from Sharon.

Me:"He's a bit deaf."

Sharon:"That's all I need!"


Sharon:"I need a cigarette!"

Back on track

Well, I don't know what that was. Got me somewhat worried. Thanks for your help/concerns, and special thanks to Keith, who has access to this site and immediately went looking for cures.

Thinking about it, it was probably him anyway!! ( Only joking!! )

Ok, what's with the crappy coloured curtains before my blog becomes live? Nothing I'm aware of doing, all cookie business seems in order now. It just takes an age for my blog to appear.

Strange! Answers/ know.

What's happened?

My blog has gone tits up! I can't access the main page. Oh, crap, what have I done?

I deleted a load/all the cookies yesterday, but have used the net since so there should be some back on.

Joke Tuesday.

Irish woman on holiday in the Carribean, meets a big black guy. After a night of mad passion she asks his name. He says. "You'll laugh if I tell you".
She says she wont. He says : "My name is SNOW".
She laughs, and says," My husband will never believe I've had 10" of snow each night in the Carribean!!

Nothing against the Irish!

A silly Saturday

First picture: There hasn't been a footpath for the previous mile, why warn us now?
Second pic: Narrow footpath. Why tell us the obvious? Is the sign for the blind?
Council morons, wasting our money.
If I think you have a better one, there could be a prize. No tags, open to all, just pass it on, and put them on your blogs, I shall be watching!!
