Happy Birthday to Alex the Knight of West Wellow.

With love and best wishes from one cutie to another for a very happy birthday on the 30th.......which is now today down under!

Happy New Year

Swine flu hit us and just recovering, 7 - 9 days and I think the 9 days is about right. Ed my youngest son fell too as did my sister.... good news we are recovering.

More good news I became a grandmother again yesterday to a bouncing baby boy 9llb 2oz and arrived using 4 paracetamol according to daddy (my eldest son) not spoken to mummy yet.

Thought the photo might cheer us all up on the very grey foggy but snow free part of the south coast.

Helga - recognise Jesmond Dene, although it was a very hot day when I visited a long time ago... stunning photos.

MERRY XMAS TO ALL YOU "PRS-ITES" from a VERY wet Australia.

...And, for our continental and South American bloggers.....

My dog has this annoying itch around the holidays, has had it for years.

The vet finally figured it out...

Oh c'mon, you know what it is.....


On balance, I tend to the latter :-) Have a good one, all!

To All My Democrat Friends:
Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2011, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishes.

To My Republican Friends:
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


happy christmas from me too...

Christmas Greetings from sunny Cyprus

Hello everyone. It's that time of year again and I'm off back to UK to look after Pa for Christmas. Fingers crossed the weather will be kind enough for us to make our journey safely - quite looking forward to seeing the snow - at least it may feel more like Christmas in UK! I just wanted to wish you all a wonderful Christmas holiday and a peaceful, healthy and Happy New Year. Won't be back in computer land for a couple of weeks.


MY STREET AT 0530 TODAY[23deg. and rising]!!!!

We'll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes,

But the plural of ox becomes oxen, not oxes.

One fowl is a goose, but two are called geese,

Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.

You may find a lone mouse or a nest full of mice,

Yet the plural of house is houses, not hice.

If the plural of man is always called men,

Then shouldn't the plural of pan be called pen?

If I speak of my foot and show you my feet,

And I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet?

If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth,

Why shouldn't the plural of booth be called beeth?

Then one may be that, and three would be those,

Yet hat in the plural would never be hose,

And the plural of cat is cats, not cose.

We speak of a brother and also of brethren,

But though we say mother, we never say methren.

Then the masculine pronouns are he, his and him,

But imagine the feminine: she, shis and shim!

Let's face it - English is a crazy language.

There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger;

neither apple nor pine in pineapple.

English muffins weren't invented in England ..

We take English for granted, but if we explore its paradoxes,

we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square,

and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing,

grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham?

Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend.

If you have a bunch of odds and ends

and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?

If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught?

If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?

Sometimes I think all the folks who grew up speaking English

should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane.

In what other language do people recite at a play and play at a recital?

We ship by truck but send cargo by ship.

We have noses that run and feet that smell.

We park in a driveway and drive in a parkway.

And how can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same,

while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language

in which your house can burn up as it burns down,

in which you fill in a form by filling it out,

and in which an alarm goes off by going on.

And, in closing, if Father is Pop, how come Mother's not Mop?







A few lasses and lads from Yorks and a Scouse band

All the best for the season. Love Bill.

Something to warm you up......

.....The masseurs look like nice boys.

Still snowing

Cannot recollect this much snow down here for a long time particularly at this time of year... is sleeting now and hopefully I will get to my daughters (South East) for Christmas - but in true PRS style I will have plan B ... all about planning and preparation!
Keep warm my friends.

Now is the winter of our discontent

Been bloody cold in the briar patch lately.

A repost but as Peter is in the news..

Ron Mottram is the other reprobate
