Bollocks to technology

by NobblySan

Technology for the sake of it can be a bit of a bummer.

Especially if you have a speech impediment.

Camping it up

by NobblySan

Last weekend, Mrs N, the beasties and I were camping with a group of friends in Hawes in Wensleydale. That’s Yorkshire for them wot don’t know.

Ee – it were reet grand!

On Saturday we went for a walk that took in a couple of pubs, and in memory of Peter Sallis, I’d like to say “Cracking weather, Grommit!”

Photos here.

The sign says it all

by NobblySan

Taken on my way to work this morning.

There is so much shit in this world, but my hope is that the good in people shines through, as it appears to be doing in the form of the sort of community spirit shown by the people of Manchester.

Spot the difference

by NobblySan

One is a faintly ludicrous yet dangerous despot, surrounded by adoring acolytes, and the other is . . . . .

I don’t normally ‘do’ Trump posts, but today’s news about the fool really got under my skin.

He can fuck about with healthcare, taxes and shit in the country that elected him for ever and a day as far as I care, but screwing up the whole fucking world just because he can, leaves me somewhat pissed off.

This girl has balls

by NobblySan

When it comes to dealing with a medical issue and putting it firmly in its place, Katie Cooke has the right attitude . . . and then a bit more to sprinkle on top.

I wish I had her single-minded determination.

You get my vote, Katie.

Knife crime

Honestly – I don’t know what the world is coming to.

Crustaceans these days are just out of control.

Life with the clan McDuncanR

by NobblySan

You, dear reader, may not be aware that our own Duncan is in fact a bit of a folk hero in his native Scotland – a legend in his own lunchtime, and  star of his own comic strip.

The baldy-heided, bearded, cantankerous father in ‘The Greens’ may seem vaguely familiar to some of you.

Below, Dunc  – err . . .. ‘Paw Green’ – shows off some of his parenting skills.

Yeah! Fucking great idea!

by NobblySan

captureOur football correspondent – Barry ‘Baz’ Thatcher –  has just been released from custody, and has filed this most interesting report into a new development in the world of the beautiful game.

Fuck me! It’s good to be out of stir, I can tell you.

There’s some right fucking criminals in there; you wouldn’t fucking believe some of the stuff they’ve been up to. Robbing, beating people up, selling drugs, an’ torturin folk wot don’t pay – and that’s just the governor’s bleedin’ secretary!

As an ex-public school lad meself I was a bit worried about doin’ stir, but most of the other lads were alright – in fact a fair few of ’em went to Eton as well, so we was OK.

Even the old “Would you be so kind as to pick up the soap for me, old bean?” in the showers wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I’m still walkin’ a bit funny,  but it’s just like bein’ back at school, innit.

Anyways – back to the day job I s’pose . . .
