    Changing subject somewhat - leaf blowers, what's the point of them? All they do is blow dead leaves to somewhere else and then the wind blows them back again.

    And those owners that 'rev' their leaf blowers are, IMO, idiots. Just use a lawn rake.

    They must be petrol ones, not sure you'd hear much difference revving an electric blower. Anita bought one a couple of weeks ago, but she uses it as a hoover. It has a giant bag attached

    Maybe I'm allergic to something, but I'm not bothered. I'm regular as clockwork, which is good for all the family. Means they can plan their day with confidence. 7am every morning I present my gift to the world, and my bowels are so smart that when the clocks go back later this month I will be allowed that extra hour in bed Wish I could say the same for my bladder...

    Well I didn't know that, but I do now.

    "Long as your forearm"? It would never flush, you'd have to chop it up. Perhaps a baby's forearm.

    Lol - they'd need a separate shuttle to fit you in, mate!

    Only kidding!

    Fatness aside, which is actually a better thing at his elevated age than the opposite, he looks damned good for 90

    Of course. When you're 90, every day you're alive is a blessing, and you no longer have to worry about what's 'bad' for you, so can just enjoy life!

    Plus, it's better to have some 'meat on your bones', than the opposite (and clearly, he has a good appetite)), as overall at that age it's healthier. He certainly looks well, rather than like a pale, gaunt, wrinkly old man. Facially, with those plump rosy cheeks, he could easily pass for someone 20 years younger!
