My parents used to feed them, so we saw them all the time. They like cat food.

I had the best mulligatawny soup ever tonight. I could eat it all day, every day.

It doesn't take much to make me smile

Having a mobile Coffee Van in my work parking lot today. A caramel butterscotch frappacino really hit the spot.
Almost as good as having a Mr Whippy van stop by.....oh, I wish!

Just back from Prague, lovely city, great to see baby brother again after so lomg,

marred only by...

First night, returning to hotel after dinner, we were accosted by one of Europe's recently arrived guests from the ME. Failing to elicit money or cigarettes from me or my Brother he turned his attention to our respective wives. Seeing him take a lunge at my Wife I managed to intercept him with a firm hand against his shoulder - at which point he turned, spat in my face and ran off. Charming.

You must have got the bad ones.

Pie and peas is a Yorkshire tradition.

I just don't like peas of any description so I'm kind of biased.

Bummer about the unwanted attention, but very pleased that you enjoyed your time in Prague and your time with 'baby brother'

Getting my Employment authorization and travel doc meaning I can now search for work and save up for the wife and I to visit home for Christmas! It will be her first one in England with my family, so it's exciting
