A hiatus for a few days, while I move house.

Meanwhile, enjoy a new Gerald Durrell book, long thought lost. Following the success of "The Bafut Beagles", "My Family And Other Animals" and "A Zoo In My Luggage", follow his further amusing adventures in "A Lamprey in the Undercroft", a collection of drunken maunderings captured on tape during his brief visit in the early 80's to The White Hart Tap in St. Albans.

A very small part of the above story is true.

It's under the house... only 2 people know how to get in there - let's keep it that way.

That "Oh ****" moment

Tobias Smollett (1721 - 1771) was probably the first person to articulate the words Boggins spoke yesterday when, while retrieving old paint and other noxious substances from his cellar, he realised that he had dripped PAINT, of a colour enigmatically named "Sexy Pink", all over the dining room carpet, across the floor, up the patio doors and along the patio.
The words, for which overhaul your copy of "Ferdinand Count Fathom" , and, when found, make a note of, were as follows:

"Oh Fuck."*

*it may be that your copy of Ferdinand Count Fathom (you do have a copy??) does not contain these words. For this you can probably thank generations of pusillanimous editors.

By the way, why has Melissa brought a toaster to school? Don't they feed her at home?

Well done.

The template: arses.

The other one just didn't work properly: too much javascript I reckon. You could only view it properly in fullscreen, and I had to take so many bits out and move stuff around so much to make it even half-work it was ridiculous. So I'm back with web-standards guru Mr Zeldman's classic template, and here I'll stay. Probably.

Hunstanton pictures to look at soon! Mrs Trellis is champing at the bit, I can tell!

In other news, Owl Pellets is, at the time of writing, the 2nd-ranked search return on Google for "airtight inspection cover". What a let-down that must be.
