Never Bite The Hand That Feeds.

Unless you're one of the feral drongos that prowl the length of King Street, Ramsgate, of course!
On the odd occasion that I happen along that part of Town (which is as infrequently as I can manage, I assure you!), I'm never disappointed in having a new level of depravity demonstrated to me.
The latest, just last night, after finishing work ridiculously late and deciding to pop in for a kebab in the recently taken over take-away next to the New Hong Kong, the new owner was pondering the wisdom of his recent acquisition, whilst nursing four rather nasty looking bite marks on his hand. The result of trying to break up a fight in his shop last Saturday.
Had the guy actually lived in Ramsgate, instead of Dover, it may have afforded him some valuable insight into the location of his new shop and he may not have bothered with it.

Ah well, you live and learn, eh?

Summertime And The Living Are Cheesy.

Since this smoking ban in public places has been in force, I think we've been spoiled a bit by the fact that it's been mostly cold weather since.
Now that things are warming up a bit, I must say that in some ways I'm glad I have to go and stand outside the pub for my fag. The bloody place stinks of festering feet, armpits and a whole host of other things that I really don't care to think about, these days.

If anything, I think I'm smoking more now, on the strength of it!

It does make you wonder if the government is really helping anyone, other than themselves, with their 'motherly' behaviour modification rules.

How about a law that insists that people wash and purge themselves of gas before they enter a public building?

Balls To The Wall.

Apologies, firstly, for my absence of late, but I've been somewhat tied up with my own, er, issues.
Secondly, apologies (for some) about returning to the wonderful World of blog.
Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, does anyone know of a simple way to undo a granny knot without using a sharp implement or fire? I find it difficult to type unless I'm sitting comfortably!
