    From Bella the Collie. My master said I could answer this. Us dogs would never have got into this mess in the first place. People are really stupid. Any dog knows that being in a pack is a good thing and a few scrawny dogs fighting over scraps on a little island is a really bad idea especially if there's an American eagle in one direction and a big Russian bear and a great big Chinese dragon in the other. I would like a wooferendum. Its your mess, you get yourself out of it. I'm going to chase some squirrels.

    Are we in the 21 st century or the 19th, we had massive epidemics of disease killing thousands in our major cities in the early 1800's and this was solved by building sewers, installing flushing toilets and building public toilets. We now seem to be heading back to the early 19th century toilet arrangements that led to such epidemics, OK our drinking water is still better, but there are many other ways for bacteria to travel, the best prevention is to shift our waste well away from other people and to treat it properly, land fill plastic bags and local dustbins may not always achieve this.

    Snowflake is such a silly term. It is nothing more than a dehumanising term used to create a 'them and us' rift. This isn't a judgment just an observation but you apply it to me because you think I'm perhaps weak and I apply it to you because [I think] your emotional and illogical. All rather pointless really. People have been taking that stance for as long as there have been people to take it and it hasn't worked so far. If somebody is so inclined to be a criminal then consequences don't deter them because they commit crime with the full confidence that they won't get caught or if the do they think they're too smart for the police to be able to pin it on them. If you look back through history at what we've done to criminals in the past if harsh punishment worked then we'd all be good little automatons by now. And no I don't think that hand holding and kumbaya are the answers either but Dr Brenè Brown of the university of Huston Texas, has done some very good research about how/why people end up committing violent crime and I think she's onto something. Having said that some people are just wired wrong but they're a whole nother discussion. ?

    Is that what you really think? The 'others' are 'cowardly', and by implication the quitters are 'courageous'? It speaks louder than words. Did you think about this before hitting the keyboard? (or did that look good after a brew?) You could excuse yourself on those grounds. I suspect it may actually be what you 'think'. I think, as a post it discredits you, and I think you are probably ashamed of it but I don't think you will admit that. In this post you have moved beyond argument into raw gut loathing of 'them'. You aren't discussing any more - your hate is bubbling over. I don't think you are that much of a dimwit, even though you post from a position that is straight cut and paste from the troll hole of alt right barkers. The courage of the 'winners' labelling the other half as 'enemies of the people', 'traitors'. The courage of those who 'won' and are now getting what they 'won'. That the debate has turned to 'courage' is telling though. The people that lose employment, they need courage. They need courage because their families will suffer. Courage keeps us warm. I suppose they need people like you to encourage them that their reduced life and the lowered expectations of their children are a courageous choice. Because from the ashes, the thing you want will emerge. At their cost. Nobody, nobody, is now suggesting the Brexit we face is going to be good for anyone (except the hedge fund owners like Rees Mogg, who's interest are served by more chaos and regression). That whole narrative has gone, vanished in the face of reality, its promoters have likewise vanished from responsibility, in order to avoid taking it, and now the people are faced with 'courage'.

    I think the builder has shown remarkable foresight in putting one door in upside down so that he/she can escape when it eventually capsizes. ?

    fit a cat flap in the sliding door if the flap is being held open or flapping in the wind the ecofan is running (and therefore the fire is lit) if the cats have curled up on the bed and the flap isn't flapping the fire has probably gone out. for better results I suggest shaving one cat, the shaved cat gets colder quicker (and will therefore arrive on your bed before the fire has died completely) then it's a case of count the cats on the bed 0 cats : fire burning nicely 1 cat : Fire burning but cooling down 2 cats : Fire has gone out

    A small town in Italy twinned with a similar town in Greece. The Mayor of the Greek town visited the Italian town. When he saw the palatial mansion belonging to the Italian mayor he wondered how he could afford such a house. The Italian said; "You see that bridge over there? The EU gave us a grant to build a two-lane bridge, but by building a single lane bridge with traffic lights at either end this house could be built". Soon after, the Italian visited the Greek town. He was simply amazed at the Greek Mayor's house, gold taps, marble floors, it was marvellous. When he asked how this could be afforded the Greek said; "You see that bridge over there?" The Italian replied; "No."

    How many tonnes can a quad tow? Not as many as a helicopter can carry? How long would it for the lorries carrying the stone to be loaded up, driven to as close to the site as possible and then unloaded again, the stone loaded onto the quads and then transported to the site? Not as quick as the helicopter flying it in? How many people would the whole process take? Quite few more than the people required to fly in the stone be helicopter. £20k might sound expensive to some but it doesn't take long to rack that up in man hours and plant hire time.

    This morning is an admin morning so I'm home in the office, and the dog, as he does, came barrelling in to tell me that the nice lady from Hermes was here and that I should come out and say 'hello'; well the Hermes lady had a really big box and it had traveled all the way up to the frozen north form the Chesterfield canal and Auntie Wain-Rose. The box contained all the lovely goodies that I won in the auction and I must say that they are even more lovely in real fife. I promised Auntie Cheshire-Wain that I would give them some TLC and post some before and after piccies, I have some ideas about how I may be able to help these little kettles but if I start to play with then just now I'll never get any work done but I may post some piccies and ask some advice latter on - and I promise not to mention Sugru. Many thanks to Auntie for such wonderful prizes and hopefully they will one day travel the inland waterways again. ❤️❤️

    Talking generally, some people are too proud or untrusting to ask or even accept help and just try to get buy, maybe even living in a boat that is ultimately going to sink. What ever is done will cost society money, wether it is emergency accommodation, or money to help with mooring and licensing. It is sad that this case has come to this and some compassion for his situation is the decent thing to have. Driving him off the waterways to where we no longer see him does not solve the problem, it only hides it and allows us to pretend that all is well in society. It isn’t.
