Hello Helen :)

<Wee Piglet stands carefully with little cotton snout bag at the ready, in case of sudden SNEEZEs!!!!!>

Hello JJ,

I've seen nothing of the monkey for many hours now. I think he must be feathering his den, or whatever it is that Chimps do in the long winter evenings.

My excuse for buying a camera is to take piccies of all the beautiful things I see on my long w/e runs, and in particular the wonderful toadstools! There was also a stunning hoar frost about a month ago, and a small flock of attractive Herdwick sheep has insinuated itself into the sand dunes. All these things need careful logging.

That's my excuse, anyway... hehe heh

Helen Wheels is a rather catchy little number by Paul McCartney - you may have heard of him.

Wee P, thank you so much for your consideration. Do echinacea and Vit C work on piglets?

JJ you are right, it's that snake oil...

WP, did you get the Fuji?
28/01/2003 at 21:25

I did get the Fuji, but I've not had much chance to use it so far. I'm still not sure how I'm going to carry it on long runs, but I'm thinking of taking it in a sort of personal stereo carrier thingy I got last year. Sigh... life is so complicated! ;)

Echinacea and vitamin C are said to work well for piglets, but I have difficulty getting hold of them because when I go into the chemist and ask about them the staff tend to run away.

Anyone Home?

Too late as usual. Takes so long to catch up from the last time I was here. Still its nice to see some life in the "mature" set.

Weather was a bit chilly today so wimped out and went to the gym again. Covered 5 k on the treadmill and another 5k on the rowing machine. I wish someone hadn't told me that cross-training was a waste of time.

Time for a little telly.

Goodnight, and well done

Incidentally on the topic of whether one should use an up to date picture to avoid confusion. Mine is about 12 months out of date but I may get a new one during the upcoming strike/war.

Good idea
its a tad inflammatory!,

Hi Hippo,

Just been over to the Wild Grover thread which never ceases to amaze me.. Probably get flamed for poking my nose in (if you'll pardon the expression) but I just don't seem to live in their world.

Nice to see not everyone goes to bed at 10.

Enjoy the horlicks.

its gin, love
mothers ruin
Got to enjoy self before 36 hour shift
28/01/2003 at 23:17
Good taste. Thins the blood too, tho' I find it does slow me down a bit if taken too soon before a run.

36 hours sounds like a double marathon. Time to get New Labour to reform you're sweatshop hours. What do they think they are? Thatcherites?
28/01/2003 at 23:18

No, the reforms havent reached registrar yet
And whrn they do, ill be a consultant

Good morning each.
Will you guys up north turn the fan down a bit it's bl**dy cold down here. Get your own back in some other way.

Burnt Out Everard. Are you sleeping all day and getting up in the late evening. What's your piccie anyway? Looks like a tongue after a half-decent curry (and gin).

Seeing as how the bottoms dropped out of the stock market there must be real share bargains around. Do us a spreadsheet that will pick them out.

Norah. See above. Better bet than the gee-gees at the moment.
29/01/2003 at 09:04
Morning all. Glad to see Norah's as good a tipster as me!
29/01/2003 at 09:08
Hello Chimp.
Nice to know you're OK and not road kill. Although the ears look a bit flat.
29/01/2003 at 09:21
Morning folks. My, it's cold.
