Pine cones, and the vegetarian at the Olympic Stadium

Today I was sawing wood and collecting pine cones, one of the big trees that had to be cut down had loads of pine cones and they make great fire starters, and as it is due to rain tomorrow I was ordered to go and collect them all up. When I say ordered it was in fact a game of Scissors, Paper, Stone and the loser had to go and do it……….. So guess what. I was rather hoping the dog would help but he misheard and turned up with a van load of traffic cones, and was told to get rid of them somewhere sharpish. It appears he may have caused a bit of a traffic jam on the main road although he was rather pleased with his temporary contra flow system based on a progressive double helix three lane double box intersection with staggered filter lane control.

In other news someone was telling us that they had been to the Olympics and had a great day out, but it seemed that if you were a vegetarian then food was a bit of a problem. They think there may have been vegetarian food at the Olympics but sadly never found it so ate chips followed by chips and chips. Not the ideal choice of legacy for the next generation.  Although I love a good chip butty.

As many of you know I have various outlets for my humble diary one of which is a blog. Every now and again I get anonymous comments left on the blog by people who wish to remain  anonymous, sadly for them these are shifted straight into the spam box because well that is just what happens, I am not entirely sure why. However I was a little amused by the following comment made just before they said I should visit there website selling stuff…..

‘Ѕimply wish to say your artiсle is аs astonishing. The clаrity in уour рoѕt iѕ just сool аnd i could assume yοu're an expert on this subject. Fine with your permission let me to grab your feed to keep up to date with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please continue the gratifying work.’

What can I say it makes it all worth while knowing a man doing his bit flogging stuff on the internet thinks I am astonishing; I am astonished to say the least. Although when he says ‘The clarity in your post is just cool’ I am a little suspicious, after all I work hard and being unclear and random about stuff. However I will be keeping up the gratifying work, for now…… 



  1. Maybe he meant the level of your targeted clarity (0%) ? Not sure ...

    I am halfing to work today, which means I reaLLy only wish to be doing half as much and with half the effort, or half x half = one quarter. Yawn. I hope I get to go home soo-oon. I am sure the puppy has missed me. [Sad face goes here.] ActuaLLy I need to spray for ants, that's the real work I should be doing. Later.

    1. Oh, but I did get new shoes today. Yea!

    2. New shoes sounds good maybe you could use then to jump up and down on the ants in a sort of humane way that only squashes them a bit, (please note no ants we squashed in the making of this blog site)....

    3. I am making typing mistakes again and even thought I correct them I always find more when I return the next day.

      I am trying to work out if it is my hands or brain, although my brain is missing them anyway. I will have to find a cunning plan that will resolve this typing problem.

      Damn it I had to correct that too...........
