Kilgraney to corner old shoe market!

Kilgraney to corner old shoe market! The last thing I would want to do is laugh at people trying to speak or write a foreign language - especially as the British are particularly lazy and arrogant in this department.

Horse s**t or what?

Horse s**t or what? 1) Do you know any anagrams for 'Kilgraney's well-rotted horse manure' ? 2) do you even know what an anagram is ? 3) do you even care ?

Traffic warden revenge

Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well for example, the other day I went into town and went to a small shop on the High street.
