Being the Eighth of May 2009...


I'd like to be able to pass on some nugget of received wisdom but am engaged in invocational chanting to the sun (which also involves ecstatic whirling, dancing and banjo flailing...) to ensure passable weather for the May Day hoo-ha on Saturday...
Sadly, due to local opposition, I am unable to perform the required ritual 'sky-clad' and so there can be no guarantee of any success...
See how willfully I sacrifice what remaining dignity I may, or may not, have for your future comfort and enjoyment...

I share your westherwise anxiety, David.
Just keep repeating Berry's words of wisdom:
"Filly-chops-nubber!"

I'd rather stick pins in my 'gentleman's' area...
(If I thought it would do some good...)

A supply of the necessary pins can be obtained at Screwfix. (Open on Sundays).
A pot of melted solder will be useful for reflected pain and making shot.
It would be much quicker, cheaper and rather less painful, just to do as I have instructed and utter my phrase "Filli-chops-nubber"
