in my local community there is a group of people who get together and organise a clean up every other week ,the village is on the tourist map and every time the sun shines or there is bank holiday people flock here the amount of rubbish discarded in hedge rows and on the beach is staggering we can collect up to 20 refuse bags, last year we won the cleanest small village award , less that 3000 Th's people live here. the County Council don't have the money or it seem's the inclination to clean up, so it's left to volunteers .

Hi every one ,My Father was one 9 children brought up in sight of Christ Church in Dublin in the 1920's  they shared a Georgian town house with 10 other families the toilet was out the back , In 1930 they moved to the outskirts of the city 3 miles and the house had two bedrooms electric light and indoor pluming ,when I came along my Father had returned from working in England and Married my mother she lived in a similar house across the road  ,when I was 16 we moved to the north side of the City his argument was that it was nearer to his work place he worked for Goulding they made Fertilizers for export,any way years later when I got Married I had five children we lived in a house with 3 bathrooms , the point of my story is that as my children grew up I would tell them that there is two rules in life .

1/ always taste your soup before you add salt .

2/ Before you close the door of the bathroom make ther's toilet roll .

this morning I got phone call "Da can you bring me some loo paper"

have I failed

Back from work- bruised and battered. Fell over one of the raised beds I'd left up my back passage on my way to work last night. Bruised knees, scraped shins and grazed palms.
You've all reminded me I must organise a haircut, am looking like a sheep.

"Painful" I bet you weren't that polite when it happened
