Re: Apropos of not very much

It is precisely this sort of scottish excrement that prompted me to take a flat in San Sebastian de La Gomera for a month. I am sitting here full of garlic chicken and red wine, wearing shorts and sandals. The FUK at this time of year is a nightmare, this particular year even more so than usual. Dan...

Re: Published

Meant to add, very good effort, well done. If you can change the kindle version there's a few spelling mistakes early on, but actual real words, so spell check doesn't see them.

Re: Wait for it, wait for it . . .

Have added foaties and corrected the spelling. Book is publishing now, then I have to upload the latest improved versio...

Re: Wait for it, wait for it . . .

I think kindle books work well with phoaties. They do unless you read them on a Kindle. Which is how I read my Kindle books. If you want to look at the pictures you can go to the blog, which has been there since 2007 at http://znoy8.co.uk I might put it together as an Amazon print-on-demand paperba...

Did you know that if you place one testicle on the top of an empty whisky bottle and heat the bottom with a lighter, it sucks your testicle into the bottle, if you did know this, do you know how to reverse it, asking for a friend

OK, would you like to firm up on that then, seeing as there has been an impassioned request for snow?
