So, NSM is gone, and now Asininecritters too. Who will be the next nutter to stand up to the mark? I need a good laugh in the morning!

I've realized that I've never known this: What is a hatter, and why are they mad?

I said NSM was a nutter - but I fully agree. I actually think that they were a "she".

As a newbie, I would like to introduce you to FOG (Finicky Old Gits). We spend our time trolling through posts correcting people, primarily because we're probably a bit dull [:(]

Anyway: Home-bred! (FOG). Your very first FOG!

Is it really Muesli???? <checks packet> So it is!! I never knew that!!! Shows how observant I am as I regularly eat it!
I always thought it as muse, as in to ponder, or inspiration, with li on the end!! Although I'm not sure what muesli inspires!! :o)

I shall have a trail of FOGs after me I think!!

I think that it's safe to say that neither of us want another child. Anyway, it's not morally justifiable (which is my excuse and I'm sticking to it!).

In actual fact, with this car we'll be down-sizing. We had an Espace before (which in case you don't know seats 7).
