Poor Charlie, I walk him every morning before work. Today, however, I had to come to the office early.

Charlie, as usual, came up to me, tail wagging like crazy: "Sorry mate, mum's going to have to walk you this morning." His tail stopped dead, and I swear to the pond gods, his face read. "WTF?"


If there's one thing I've learnt using #hive it's that members who use their mobiles for blogging and interacting far outstrip people like me who just use a PC or Laptop.

Blimey, Sixgun productions are 15 years old today.


This morning's game in the office is; to stay on the phone as long as possible because that way, you don't have to do anything else! I swear to The Pond Gods I heard one guy's voice in the hallway, and yet his extension line light was on??


I was desperate for a magnum ice cream last night, but when the dog and I looked in the freezer, there was none. I did, however, find a tub of carte d'Or ice cream hidden under some frozen chicken breasts. When the wife finds out, I'm dead!


I'm getting tired of companies jumping on the bandwagon of price increases when for their business model, there is no need.


NEVER get rid of contact details; you never know when they might come in handy, even ten years down the line. "I know someone who works there!"


That moment you receive a text reminder about paying your credit card, and you search through your account statement because you're sure you paid it.


I've forgotten who created this, but FB says it was eight years ago.


I have just eaten a rice pudding. And I did knock the skin off it first. :-P
(I suspect nobody says that anymore? "Knock the skin off a rice pudding.")


Over 300 drain covers have been stolen in my local area. The little tinkers.


It's at times like this I wish I hadn't given up Claymore dancing.


I think my cheap desktop fan has given up any pretence at even trying. ๐Ÿฅต


Some of us are having to work in this heat; I'll have you know!


I've been asked a few times with what feels like a snear in the question: "Why are you running your own instance?" This is why.

I'm waiting for my order of 100 Laptops to drop. Day three and counting.


I have just discovered a new skill! If I bellow "Go Away!" at the telephone either someone else picks it up or the caller immediately puts the phone down.


That moment you pull a long hair out of your mouth from the bite you just took from a ham salad torpedo. ๐Ÿคข


Not sure I'm interested in an email client embedded in my web browser?
Vivaldi version 1.0 was finally released. https://vivaldi.com/features/mail/


I have just eaten this nasty thing.


Given the rising price of fuel, I may have to move to London if I want to get a Free Bus Pass. Either that or become an MP and have a second home in Londinium. Apparently, I'm far too young for one?


Grandson told to "Get a job!" after it's revealed how much it costs to feed him.


The sky was full of planes this morning while walking the dog; I kid you not! Clearly, as of March 2022, 92,065 people were not worried about fuel bills or food prices. I wonder how many flights there'll be by the end of today? https://www.caa.co.uk/Documents/Download/9068/9392b60f-e24e-4886-b72d-4518350d71ae/4845


They're putting bunting up down the local High Street. What is this, 1977?


HBS 3 keeps telling me there are sync errors, yet I cannot find these "Thumbs" it's complaining about?


OK, so I've been playing down these price rises, brushing them off with comments like: "There's no use moaning; you've got to have it, so you've got to pay for it." This lunchtime, it hit me personally! A pound, A POUND! I can't believe they've stuck a pound on the larger I've taken a shine to!


Marmite peanuts are WAAAY too addictive!


This is really bad. I'm eating wine gums at work!


I've just eaten the most insanely sized corned beef salad torpedo sandwich. Even I'm surprised I ate it all! Never mind "Foot Long" I think this was a European Metre long!


I have gone insane and bought my lunch from Marks & Spencer today.
ยฃ5.75 for a packet of crisps, a ploughman's sandwich and some prawn and chilli bean crush thing


Don't go home when you finish work. Go to your local polling station and vote! I don't care who you vote for. I couldn't give a toss if you're one of those.
"Get the Tories out!"
"Keep Labour out!"
"Don't let the Liberals in!"
"Greens, who are they?"
JUST VOTE!

Don't let others influence you.
Don't let others bully you.
Don't fall for the lies that this is about Government; IT'S NOT!

Vote for who you think cares about where you live, not who runs the country.


So tempted to buy this. I'm surrounded by sheep.
