So we are sitting on a Transitalia train packed with tourists going to visit the Leaning Tower of Pisa

He is sitting besides moi, studying a mini copy of an

English | Italian phrase book

With a glint and a smile he said

What do you think il preservativo means

I thought through my catalogue of English, French and Spanish.

Can you say it again?

il preservativo

.... this time a little louder just in case

No, I have no idea.   What does it mean?

il preservativo is....... A Packamac!

You don't mean a raincoat do you?

Nope....... It's a condom!

OMG, you have just said condom in Italian out aloud 3 times in front of all these tourists many of whom will be or speak Italian!

That glint and smile reappeared.




They have a sail in Bristol

A sale?

Yes a sail.

A sale of what?

Not a sale, a sail

What is not a sale?

Nothing is being sold. It’s a sail

If nothing is being sold what is the point of the sale?

It has been sold, they brought a sail

A sail is for shade

Oh not a sale but a sail.

Yes sail as in a sail and no one got hurt.



Beast from the East

and the

Apple Charlotte Catastrophe

I blame him! After three days of the Beast from the East he suggested we should put food out for the wild birds. We have the feline equivalent of an avian Hannibal Nectar and a psychotic canine with all the endearing qualities of Stitch on steroids. I blame the cat for indoctrinating Stitch, a terrier, in the abject loathing of these winged rats who despite his endeavours have consistently escaped his jaws and a fatal neck snapping double reversible whiplash.

Sustenance for Tits, Thrushes and all – except Magpies – was first on my Planet Earth Bird Saving Good Deed list this morning. Trill in absence I creative problem solved with an apple charlotte – that is boiled eating apples and toast crumbs with liquor soaked dog biscuits for flavour – unintentionally adding insult to injury to Stitch. All served on a twice used plastic tray placed out of terrier reach on the patio table.

Now the question is who will scold me first? The RSPB for my avian nutrition culinary incompetence and serving up bird food which a day later remains untouched. Or the RSPCA for tormenting Stitch with an influx of winged rats all looking in dismay at the inedible offering. Inedible that is to all birds but not to Stitch who is running around the garden barking at the birds and driven to distraction with the smell of dog bones that he cannot locate and eat

Passion Fruit, Strawberry and Blueberry Pavlova

Mix passion fruit into the cream and top with fresh fruit.   The passion fruit is better in the cream, rather than drizzled across the top.

It is thought to have been caused by a massive land slip around Ireland

Some churches in the area have plaques recording the maximum height of the flood water as it engulfed the region. 

St Marys Church Goldcliffe plaque records the flood water at 3 feet above ground level today.

Another marks the maximum height as 7.74 meters or 25 feet and 4 inches.

Curiously the St Mary's Church plaque dates the event as 1606.   According to Wikepedia this is because they used the Julian Calendar at that time and the new year did not start until Lady Day 25 March.
