I borrowed a library book off a friend so I can use it to target my theme for the month (Pirates). Darned dog has chewed it - so gotta pay $20 (cost of book). Phone number 4 was chewed last week, along with some clothes. So my other book is Stop Eating My S...ttttttttt!!!!!
If you're taking advance orders Fulwood, I'll have one of each. Preferably unchewed and not pooped on

TV Crap:

The Jeremy Kyle Show

Loose Women A load of gobby old harpies talking craptalk - usually about men

Non speeches by Ed Miliband

Big Brother

Celebrity Big Brother

Britain's Got Talent..........no it hasn't!

Jeremy Paxman in whatever capacity

60 Minute Makeover.......60 minutes? Come on!!!! Think compensation claims once the faults come to light...

Nicky Campbell - sorry to say, a fellow Scot but what a smarmy bar steward!

Town and city centres at chucking out time especially on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.....all that lovely vomit and piss and punch ups galore and groups of foul mouthed pissed out of their brains females with very, very little in the way of dress even when it's -5C and with snow on the ground.

Amongst other things, I've been hunting for the origins - on here - of the 'discussion' ref dog poo trees and having found this from about a year ago, wanted to share the BBC commentary on it - can't see whether the article has come up before.

BBC News - Eight radical solutions to the problem of dog mess

I note:

"Dog mess is one of the most common causes of complaints to local councils and four out of 10 people consider it a problem in their local area" - per Keep Britain Tidy.

It would seem that an origin for dog poo trees lies in the local council or authority taking 'action' - in this case in 'green' Todmorden -

"In Todmorden, West Yorkshire, British Waterways decorated a tree with dozens of bags of poo-filled plastic bags, to highlight the problem of owners picking the waste up - only to fling it into the foliage."

There you go then! Moving right along.........

More very heavy rain today! Phew!

Todmorden - after seeing the tree with those bags on it - should be renamed "Turdmorden".. Honestly forgive me but i read the BBC article - only Brits could come up with such a long-winded article on the subject of dog feces. It's not as bad in Arizona but I get annoyed myself when see it. My idea for a book is becoming more of a reality Today my dog started to show all signs of needed to "go" but before he did he chased a butterfly and ate a roach (cockroach not the illegal kind) before he squatted. All whilst on the end of a leash and me saying "Just s..t for f..ks sake"..
