Sloshing out The Bucket

Posted on

Before I skim some globs of semantic suet and coagulated crud from inside The Bucket and start heaving them in your direction once more, I would like to recommend an unexpected little gem which I found floating on top.
Sammy is a new blogger who started life in Philadelphia and now resides in Australia. He writes from the heart about life matters in an easy-to-read style. I feel good whenever I read Sammies Blog  and I’m sure he would appreciate your company if you have a little space left in your blogging world.

1. “You clench your buttocks so tightly when you are asleep that you could sharpen a pencil in there.”  (Mrs Meldrew to Victor in “One foot in the Grave” )

Long enough to cover the subject, but short enough to be interesting.”
(Parish Priest Father Bernie Macklin)

3.  “A fully loaded e-book reader can weigh a millionth of a millionth of a gram more than an empty one”.
(ABC radio)
You have no idea how many sleepless nights I spent worrying about this possibility. Now I feel relieved, but knowledge and concern for others can be such a burden. Now I worry about all the e-book owners who must be suffering from prolapsed discs and acute facet joint arthropathy under the weight of all this electronic literature.

4.  This one is a last minute addition. My daughter is feeling slightly overwhelmed at the moment by the responsibilities and workload of  her job.   Many years ago the two of us would giggle uncontrollably over this piece of Monty Python nonsense, so my dear Inga this is for you today.

And now I’m off for a hot rendezvous at
