The largest spider in the world

Well, not quite. But one of the largest I’ve come across on this Island.

He was looking for somewhere dry to hang out after a small rain shower. I didn’t realise that he had a key to our place…

Some things done well.

All I can say is the Victorians knew how to make nails! I found this while pulling apart some timbers from a victorian era house. 100+ year old nail, that makes it an antique doesn’t it?

Cordless mouse

There’s one main problem with a cordless mouse. It’s cordless. That means you can leave it anywhere and you have no way (i.e. a cord) of finding where you left it. How long did it take me to find mine? 30 minutes. Where was it? Next to the sink of course.

Don’t blame me, I voted to remain…

Today the UK has voted to leave the EU. Crazy.

The LA Times sums it up quite well:

“On Thursday British voters wilfully walked off a cliff when they decided to leave the European Union”.

All I can hope is that this will be sorted out by our democratically elected experts (yes, I am referring to the politicians in Westminster) and we won’t leave the EU. This is, after all, a non-binding referendum.

Given how the financial markets have responded, this can’t be a good idea. Can it?

Lonnie ‘s rule of shaving in the shower

“After shaving in the shower, you must stay in the shower until all the shaving cuts stop bleeding”. I hope you, like me, have a never ending supply of hot water..

Ouch!

Redback spiders are nasty. Even though there have been no reported deaths since 1956, I still wouldn’t trade places with this chap.

Having found this I’m starting to wonder if Kate has a secret part time job…

The most disturbing thing I’ve discovered this year…

I might be going off brie. I am quite disturbed. I just seem to find it too salty. I wonder if Kate has been slowly removing salt from my diet so that now I’m extra sensitive to it. Well, I will try several brands before I give up, and we might need to drop over to France to try some local ones. I’ll keep you posted..
