  1. THINKING STRANGE THOUGHTS..MICE

    Are Mice More Intelligent

    Is it my imagination or are mice getting more intelligent? I remember years ago, you could just throw down a bit of bait and that would take care of things for a few months. Now, its as if someone warned them at Mouse School, “do not talk to strange dogs and do not eat bait”. The reason I mention this is because I have had a particularly hard time with a mouse lately. It all started a few weeks back when I noticed a fairly large rodent sitting in front of ...

  2. THINKING STRANGE XMAS THOUGHTS...

When the smoke cleared there was just a pile of ashes with her hairnet sitting on top and a knitting needle either side of it. Much as ...

    On the other hand, if you insist upon going ahead with it, perhaps I can help a little bit.

  4. THINKING STRANGE THOUGHTS.......GRANDDAD

    During a recent visit to the city, I couldn't help but notice how much graffiti there was, I'm sure that my granddad would turn in his urn, if he saw how times had changed. I remember when I was about eight years old, I kicked a soccer ball against his shed door, he flew out of the shed and explained to me how he had died in two world wars for the likes of me , just so I could kick a ball around without getting shot at and did I appreciate it, obviously not.

  5. THINKING STRANGE THOUGHTS.......THE LUCKY UNDERPANTS

    Thinking Strange Thoughts

    I was just sitting here feeling a bit peckish and dreaming about my mom’s famous rabbit stew. It was mainly famous for its lack of rabbit, she would just boil up any old veggies she had lying around for a few hours and then give it a good stir with her lucky rabbits foot. Some people with amazingly sensitive taste buds, were certain that they could detect a taste of rabbit in the stew, personally I think it was just the taste of the bacteria on the lucky ...
