Adventure before dementia


I left home early this morning as I had an early patient booked in for me here at Plymouth - When I arrived, he had cancelled ... So, I'm using the time productively and doing another Q&A MEME that I have snagged from jamalov29   These can just be one word answers - so hope that you play along, as some of my LJ I don't know much about.

It also gives me an excuse to show off one of my new set of icons that was made for me by the amazing amyxaphania  - this picture was one I took while James was doing his Q&A, so thought it appropriate!

MEME Questions:-
1.What is your favorite word?
2.What is your least favorite word?
3.What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
4.What turns you off?
5.What is your favorite curse word?
6.What sound or noise do you love?
7.What sound or noise do you hate?
8.What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
9.What profession would you not like to do?
10.If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

Now, give me your answers!!

Eternal love

366 MEME - Day 119 - Dunterton Church.

This is a Church that has always fascinated me, and I pass it on my way to Plymouth each week now. As you approach it, all you can see are the tips of the tower, as the road is above the Church.

The other fascinating thing about it, is that it is a 13th-14th century Church .... and there is a farmhose on the other side of the road .... and nothing else. Quite a few English Churches are like that - not that there never was a village, just not one now. Many villages were lost during and after the Black Death, but the Churches remain, as testiment to their beautiful design.


LOL - James (full face)

Gordon The Chicken!!!!

Gordon the Chicken

Trevor the farmer was in the fertilised egg business.

He had several hundred young layers(hens), called 'pullets' and eight or ten roosters, to fertilise the pullets' eggs. Trevor kept records and any rooster that didn't perform went into the soup pot and was replaced.

That took an awful lot of his time so he bought a set of tiny bells and attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a different tone so Trevor could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing. Now he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report simply by listening to the bells.

The farmer's favourite rooster was Gordon, and a very fine specimen he was too, but on this particular morning Trevor noticed Gordon's bell hadn't rung at all! Trevor went to investigate.

The other roosters were chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing. The pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover but to farmer Trevor's amazement, Gordon had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.

Trevor was so proud of Gordon, he entered him into the London Exhibition and Gordon became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The Result?

The judges not only awarded Gordon the No Bell Piece Prize but they also awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well.

Clearly Gordon was a politician in the making: Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention.

Do you know a Pullitician called Gordon?



And, I said I never made any political posts on my LJ!!!
