The first brass monkey weather of winter

by NobblySan

Last night, it snowed here in the tropical paradise of Oldham-sur-mer.

This afternoon it was time for a walk, and for the dogs to enjoy themselves in what was left of the snow.

All very nice, I’m sure, but can it please now go away?

Scam – beware!

by NobblySan

I feel it my duty to warn you all of a particular scam, of which I  myself have fallen foul.

This scam is widespread, and despite the best efforts of Thatcher’s government to eradicate it from the UK many years ago, still blights the lives of many people not just here, but indeed, around the world.

Thankfully, by skillful and vigilant scheming and manoeuvering, our dear friend ratty has managed to avoid this scam for many years.

The idiot’s guide to La Marseillaise

by NobblySan

Before tonight’s England vs France ‘friendly’ at Wembley (the last one was an away match at Waterloo, I believe) both sets of fans were urged to join in singing the French national anthem.

I know that I’m from the county of the red rose, but . . .

So you think that’s funny, do you?

by NobblySan

Reading through today’s news, I noticed that Woody Allen’s Annie Hall was voted the funniest screenplay of all time by the Writers Guild of America.

I must admit to never having seen this apparent masterpiece, so can’t comment on how worthy it is of being given this accolade.

“What would get the Nobbly vote?”  I hear you ask.

OK – in first place, we have Blazing Saddles, and in second we have an honourable tie between Life of Brian and Airplane!

Classics, the lot of ’em, and not a Rizla ™ to be slipped between them in truth, but Blazing Saddles just shades it for sheer silliness.

Apologies for the picture of a truly horrible woman.

by NobblySan

Just in from No1 son . . .

In the interests of public decency, and to avoid panic in the ranks of right-minded people, the photo is hidden within this link.

If the photo offends too much, just cover it with your hand before scrolling down and reading some wondrous wit from Mr Frankie Boyle, who is becoming quite the entertaining columnist now that he’s over his spell of being a bit of  an attention-seeking tosser.

Christians against Drugs

by NobblySan

Now this is the sort of organisation that we should all be getting behind.


I always knew that sticky was a wrong ‘un; ever since he offered me a quick portobello up the shitake.

A sad day – Take2.

by NobblySan

We’ve just had our first ever day with no comments whatsoever in a 24-hour period.


I’ve just renamed this one to add ‘Take 2’  as I realised that we’d already had that title for this post
