Makes a 'magician' sitting in a glass box for 44 days seem tame,by comparison...

Nice one. .

Did you also clock the bearded man waving his titfer at his mates in the crowd. Must have realised the pubs were just about to open so he did a runner at 2.01. Queen or no queens visit it's all about priorities innit it. Another nifty bit of disappearing magic if ever there was one

Re: Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)

I didn't think they really ate clothes either LD, thankfully we havenít seen any moths in the house for years now.

In the posh part of Dublin 4 they pronounce Moths as Mods, and I can remember as a child a cartoon strip in a childrenís comic called ďMaud the MothĒ.

About eight years ago we bought an expensive mattress from a well known store in town. After a week or so I started scratching in the bed, then the wife started scratching too, we couldnít figure out why. then when she was making up the bed next morning she spotted several bed bugs, at the side of the mattress was a small hole and when I opened it up more there were thousands of the little buggers all huddled together in a big ball of movement, and in a brand new mattress!!.
We never had bed bugs in all the years we lived here which would be most of our married life, they obviously came with the mattress.
Anyway we informed the store and sent them photoís, they said it had nothing to do with them so we contacted a solicitor, presented him with all the evidence and he sorted it out quickly. The whole house had to be fumigated by Rent a Kill and the wife had to have medical treatment she was in such a state over the whole thing, it was a very traumatic time for her, she still has nightmares about it to this day and always checks the mattress before she gets into bed.

Ye gawds... now you have gone and done it Jem .

Why is it that just reading the very mention of bed bugs or head lice and you can't help but start scratching uncontrollably .

I remember as a youngster my Mother going absolutely ballistic after allowing me to stay overnight at a friends house and I came back home badly bitten by bed bugs. Fair scared the wits out of me as I thought with that kind of reaction I was going to die. If she had got hold of my friends mother that day she would have tarred and feathered her for sure.

Mother eventually calmed down, bites went and I survived but lost a friend.

Yes bugs in a bed, horrible things, I remember writing about it on this forum at the time. Enough about that, but in a new mattress!, it just goes to show you you canít be sure of anything can you.

Thinking about this plastic problem again, Iím sure they already have a few genetically modified humans walking around the place at the present time without anyone knowing about it, so what if with all they know now about genetics and body part transplants, they came up with a creature that eats plastic? you could have one in every household, and they could double for pets as well, they could make them any size and shape so they could fit under the sink or one could make a little sort of kennel for it to put outside with the bins, all youíd have to do is give it a kick in the arse and it opens itís mouth, hey presto! the plastic is gone forever!
Just think of the advantage of it, no pet food bills, no recycling bin charges, his/her waste would probably be good for the garden too, and a nice little companion to keep you company. albeit an extremely ugly one judging by the designers of today.
I think i remember reading about some rats that actually thrive on eating plastic cables, scientists could start to work from that, keep them busy and stop them telling us everything we like is bad for us and looking for black holes that ainít there.
Pug would be the man for figuring all the ins and outs of the creature, heís brilliant at equations and stuff like that, go for it Pug put your name on the international stage!

Had David Lean got a brother called Terry Lean? I know he had a wrinkly old Aunt called Crimp Lean, then you have his two sisters, Polly, Esther.
