Trying desperately not to laugh at ZebraPup (and failing).

We've given her the fabric, kennel-shaped dog bed that the former ZebraDog used to have, to use in the conservatory. But every time she tries to get comfortable and lies down, she leans too far against the side of the thing, thus sending it tumbling to the side. Then she peers out, perplexed at our laughter, and proceeds to move just enough so that the whole thing tumbles sideways yet again. The expression on her face says "why does an earthquake keep happening in this bed?"

Currently she's lying on what should be the inside roof of it, as it is now upside-down.



This sort of thing...

Well Sainsbury's claim they are available on their groceries webpage (90p/pack of 6)- also on the page is the address of the Northstaffs Oatcake Bakers Limited factory in Newcastle. Might be fruitful to pass polite anti-Sainsbury's sentiments to them.
Cheers BB, but this Sainsburys don't have half the stuff their web page states. I will, however, take up your suggestion.

Just had a trip to Sainsburys to see if they've finally started re-selling North Staffs Oat Cakes. They haven't. The Neanderthals. Can someone send me some? (Looking at you escargot).
They're on sale in the supermarkets 'ere. A couple of years back I was driving a friend to an NHS specialist treatment in Burslem or somewhere which is just up t'road from High Lane Oatcakes, Duck. If you look at their website you'll see plastic ducks adorning the counter. Cheesy.

Cheesy, yum, cheese and onion oatcakes. With ketchup. Mmmmm.

Am I posting you some then?

Thanks for the offer, duck, but I'll endeavour again to track some down here. Failing that, I shall take Bad Bungle's advice and report to the Head office in Newcastle who will hopefully give Sainsburys a damn good thrashing over the matter.
I used to use a place on Whieldon road called 'Hungry Potter' (or it is now, not sure if it was then).

I've had a look at my travelling activity on Google Maps.

Apparently I visited the Orchard Caravan Park, Chichester Rd, Bognor Regis PO215ED t'other week, 11:20 - 11:52. It seems I took a train there from Milton Keynes (where I did actually go) and drove back north afterwards, nearly 200 miles.

Had a look at the place's page, where I was informed that 'You visited 2 weeks ago'. What!
I've never been anywhere near the place. I was framed, yer honour!

Turned out to be a bunch of rugged bearded blokes and busty healthy looking females listening to a lecture of filleting herrings.

The fact they were naked didn't swing it for me.

So this is topless film noir ! at least the monochrome was good. I'm waiting for the re-run of Borgen..


Note, had to correct typo after Googling 'borgan'.

A few years ago, Google Maps showed that I'd been to Turkey and back during the night.

Either it was wrong, or I had a very extreme case of sleepwalking.

Reading some of the usual suspects (you know who you all are), comments from bloody years ago. There's too much to read. Can you just stop commenting for a year or two so I can catch up. Cheers.
I'll be busy for a while with my order from the Singapore mall's Improve Your Vulva shop.
