    As my nephew who is a pilot once told me, a good landing is one you walk away from. An excellent landing is when the airfare is still serviceable afterwards

    In military circles the issued stuff was known as John Wayne as it was rough, tough and took sh1t off no one. We all had our own personal stock of 'comfy-bum'

    There was a line of those across the yard from my Nan's back door and if you were caught short in the night there was a 'guzunda' - so called because it guzunda your bed. I'd go and stay for two weeks in the summer, up to when I was ten and she moved into sheltered accommodation.

    Thatcher

    Perhaps surrender is an emotive term, but he granted freedom to convicted terrorists, pardoned those on the run and granted 'comfort' to those implicated while doing nothing to honour the effort and sacrifice of those who suffered and died in the name of law and order. I served in NI - in one...

    Thatcher

    I met Margaret Thatcher. I supported her politics, saw how she tamed the units and generated a robust economy. Inflation was reigned in, the reduction of interest rates was commenced and living standards increased. Some people didn't/don't like her and that's up to them. I find it odd that...

    My colleagues have generously fined me cakes for being involved in a POLAC (police accident), thanked me for assisting in getting rid of a Pug (supposed to be getting new Vauxhalls - don't hold your breath) and have generously suggested a new form of transport for me to use

    Another car themed picture from this morning. I was in the passenger seat. My oppo did a fantastic job minimising the effect of an inevitable collision, aches and pains all round and a few days off work but nothing serious.

    Twitter.

    I go on twitter, mostly for pet rat pictures, including ours and police related stories. I'm totally anonymous and neither wind people up, well not too much, or get into arguments myself. I have no problem with someone spending their own money buying what they want - I'm buying a new CD...

    1 litre PET bottle suppliers

    I used to drink Grolsh in the NAAFI in Germany. It worked out at 25p a bottle (late 80's) and a double spirit was 15p. It's no wonder we were pi$$ed most of the time. Grolsh would give me a two day hangover.

    1 litre PET bottle suppliers

    I got a load of swing top glass beer bottles from Aldi under the same method. I figured even if I didn't like the 99p lager in them it was still cheaper than 'proper'H/B bottles. as it was the contents were indeed vile but a friend of mine generously volunteered to empty them down the drain...

    Curry...!!

    Kashmiri chillis (whole and powdered) give a beautiful red tint and I would say the flavour is rich and deep rather than fiery. I would say it equates to a medium hot conventional chilli powder. If I'm 'chukinitinabukit' cooking, Kashmiri chilli is my go to for a it of oomph.

    Curry...!!

    Last Sunday, SWMBO was away visiting her reptiles relatives. I did Misty Ricardo's Butter chicken. Not one I'd done before but I did it faithfully - apart from a dash of milk instead of cream as we didn't have any. MR describes it as a once a year dish as it is rich and uses 'a lot' of ghee. the...

    Weiss Beer Kit

    I checked on it after four days and it was fine, a week later and ready to drop it and it had gone off. I shall get another brew on next week and order another Weiss kit in the fullness of time.
