Have you ever seen over a ton of cattle literally trying to destroy a truck? Nothing made me happier than knowing they were on the inside and I was definitely on the outside.  2 bulls and a heifer went in today and my freezer will be providing one of them with a cool reception next week.

Here's MY Sign!

Today I deserve my own sign for inattention. Unpacking the shopping I discovered extra items and an inflated reciept....I COULD have afforded a coffee after all! Next time Skye goes shopping it will be with her hands tied to the trolley!

Here's your sign

You know all those jokes that go around about people who use their CD drive as a drink holder and their mouse on the screen...well I got a real one!  A friend complained to her husband that their old keyboard did not have the right connection for their new computer. It was a PS2 connector (a round one) and the PC needed a USB (a flat one). So her husband cut off the PS2 plug and rewired it with a USB plug. No, it didn't work. I didn't explain why...I just loaned her a compatible keyboard...Thinking: "Here's your sign"
(Sean is going to ask, "Which keyboard?"...YOURS! It's the ONLY ONE!)

Not his namesake

Kirk claims to dislike pumpkin which is a pity because it grows exceptionately well in our garden! So to persuade him he really does like it I am embarking upon as many recipes as I can manage full of pumpkinny goodness (vision ideal 50's housewife brightly displaying unbelieveably perfect pumpkin).

If he still doesn't like pumpkin by the time I run out of recipes (I certainly won't run out of pumpkins!) then perhaps he will have at least resigned himself to eating them without protest (eat or starve - it's his choice).
