Re: Leprechauns, Fairies and other little people

There was a man called Cotter who lived in my father's village and he was a 'go between' and was able to take messages between the leprechaun and human kingdoms. He did this by sitting on the roof of his cottage drinking from a bottle of whiskey at night and he would meet with the leprechauns on the...

Leprechauns, Fairies and other little people

Has anyone ever seen any little people? Seriously, I do not see why they can't exist. If you can have a silverback gorilla weighing up to 600lbs and marmoset weighing ounces , why can't our own species have diversity in size? I am told that in ancient times there was a horse the size of a rabbit and...

Re: Fox?

It could even have been a single fox. The myth is generally that a fox will kill them all and only take one, is just that, a myth, the fox would have come back for all of them.If us humans had not removed the dead carcasses. So sorry about your poor chooks though. Yes dead right. Foxes get a bad pr...

Re: use a cut throat razor

I used one years ago. There is a knack to it. Not recommended if you have the shakes.

Re: What causes lots of small poatoes?

Most likely cause can also be lack of nutrients.

So far as David Cameron is concerned England only consists of the 'Home Counties' anything outside doesn't count.

Re: Gay Marriage

In terms of human affection no one has the right to tell consenting adults what they can and cannot do. It's interesting that the pious west is chomping at the bit to sort out Iran because it wants a nuclear programme but conveniently ignores the horrific abuses against women and gay people all of w...

Re: PM has lost it

The fact is that the UK is becoming more like the USA where only the wealthy can get into power. The UK cabinet is full of millionaires. Labour is no better. How are millionaires going to care about people who have to live on benefits? They come from another world. Contrary to popular belief the maj...

Re: scottish referendum survay

You have made some very valid points. My father was born in Ireland totally under English rule and lived through the war that freed most of it. He saw the poverty and the good times and now we have poverty again. He always said it was better to starve as a free man than be fed as a slave to a foreig...

No and it's disgraceful for any government to think they can. While the rich govern the poor common sense will never prevail.

Re: Tinfoil Thief!

Solved the mystery! It wasn't birds with guilty consciences returning the pilfered tinfoil on a no questions asked basis, it was a badger who removed the tinfoil from a neighbour's bin. It had been used to cook a leg of lamb in and was coated in fat. The badger was seen carrying it about and last se...
