Ice in fizzy drinks.
Yep, that one does it for me as well. The look on some pub/restaurant staff's face when you say "no ice in that one, thanks".................

Today's grump from me....?

Wage-earning 30 year-old step-daughter still living at home and treating the place like a hotel.

Oh! .....And her brother, who says his mother and I are racists because we voted "Leave", wants to stay with us for the weekend (with his Ukrainian girlfriend) because it's cheaper than a hotel in Edinburgh.

orange sauce!!!!! (sorry it just popped out)

it occurred to me that to be a properly miserable old bar steward , like myself , you need a little light in your life just to keep a little balance (not too much though!). of late that sunshine had been provided by junior (bless him) who has been doing really well in his first year in senior school...pupil of the month awards...invitations to high achievers groups etc , all good stuff. the biggy though came last week and really put a massive grin on my chops. he told me that he had been picked on by the year bully...."oh , that's not so good mate...what happened?" asked I.... "I just picked him up and pushed him wherever I wanted dad , I OWNED HIM!!!" makes ya proud don't it?!!

I actually had time for her predecessor, but I have none whatsoever for her. :( It's a lovely country and I don't think I've ever met a Scot who is anything other than welcoming. The woman whose name cannot be spoken (typed, in this case) is a bad advert for both the country and its people.

don't get me wrong... I love scotland and the scots...to me the west coast is one of the most stunning places I have ever been...but she is foul beyond foul. I just hope she gets seen through before its too late. (I would say with something pointy and sharp...but I wont!)

If you invited them ? Well. Otherwise it depends on the space. They should either bring a bottle of wine or some flowers. Or ask!

The ducks are more of a problem as they are tough birds and the feathers are hell to get off.
Never don't. But don't you dunk them in hot water? I seem to remember seeing that done once in Malaysia.

Yup,

We do that for the chickens too. We have a big water boiler for the job. Once they are done the feathers just pull out easily. With the ducks you need pliers and it takes ages. The abattoir have a machine that does it in seconds.

In Malaysia they had a drum with rubber fingers in.

I've not seen it done so I don't know how they work. Doing it by hand joins you very closely to reality though.

Three rabbits this morning and I sometimes feel I should be vegetarian. Lovely meat though so the stomach over rides my finer feelings!!! I despatch and skin and Ronnie - she of the stronger stomach - does the messy bits.

Laminate flooring.

I never wanted it but was over-ruled by SWMBO. It's only been down for 14 months and it's already tatty. At least SWMBO now agrees with me.

wouldn't touch the stuff...looks carp...feels carp underfoot...makes horrible noises....swells...wears out... women don't listen do they?!! I wanted engineered oak in our kitchen but compromised in porcelain oak board effect tiles....they are ace....and will never need re-finishing either. many people have come in and said "oooo , love your wood floor" and then have to bend down to check as they don't believe they are tiles.

I chose something similar for our downstairs bathroom. Everyone seems to like it. Not sure what we're going to replace the laminate with yet but some sort of tiling is a definite possibility.
