    Good point.
    It did not help my case when I was telling the wife we were perfectly safe here and the T'storm would pass without a problem, and just then the news posted that the two Giraffes that died over at Lion Country Safari last month were killed by lightning. That was about 100 yards or so from our pad.

    here is something weird and random....
    Our PM is a first class retard. Ok that aside...
    with all this concern about plastic pollution... we can mass produce compostable bags for our compost, why can't we produce food grade, compostable cups, lids, straws, containers etc???
    Just like cancer, we know there is a cure but governments do not want healthy people or a healthy planet me thinks.

    Tobacco is a curse, in more ways than one.

    I never thought I would give up smoking. But I am so glad I managed it 9 years ago! I decided, one day, that I would do it, so I just stopped smoking! I didn't use these revolting nicorette thingies because I reckoned that I would have to go through the whole 'giving up' effort all over again when I needed to come off the nicorettes !

    I used to roll my own, so I kept some rolling tobacco, papers, filters and a lighter, in a small tin that I carried around with me everywhere I went. You see I knew I would get pangs and that if I had the makings of a cigarette, I would not be whittling about getting a cigarette as I could have one at any time if I really couldn't stand the pangs.
    Strangely, this worked well and I never did succumb to the temptation of lighting up another cigarette. The stuff was there if I was desperate, and that gave me a strange comfort, and I did not smoke another cigarette. I went 'cold turkey' and I managed to give up smoking doing that. That was 9 years ago in 2010 and I'm so glad I did it !
    I started smoking when I was in my teens and my pals kept on at me to 'have a smoke', so eventually I did. In those days the only 'anti' about smoking cigarettes was the fact that if you did sports it cut down on your breathing ! Nowt about cancer!

    It does make me despair these days when there is so much publicity about the damage that smoking can do to people, and still youngsters are chuffin' away at their roll-ups (which may or may not have cannabis in them), with the inevitable "it won't happen to me" attitude. It is so sad. It is so addictive and it is so terribly expensive now. If I had kept smoking, I would now be paying out around £70 per week !!!!!!! Or £3,640 per year !!!!! Well that has well and truly paid for the alterations and refurbishment of our downstairs 'loo'. I rest my case. I would, also probably be on my last legs with regards to the destruction of my lungs.

    I just wish I could go up to these youngsters, with their cigarettes hangin' out of their mouths, and persuade them to give it up. But all I'd probably get would be "Oh F off you stupid owd cow" - nuff sedd !
    I'm a Saga-lout, growing old disgracefully

    There are cultures where the youngsters "revere" their Seniors, and learn from and respect their wisdom. Not so much here in the USA!
