This is the time of year when we all sneeze!

Chemists, alchemists, doctors and the rest of the crowd will tell you that it is normal, but Kleenex just get everywhere these days!

Thank goodness for open fires, a new Brexit next month, and Spring on the heels of a chilly winter!

Cheese it must be - proven fact...

Images of a total lunar eclipse which took place in December 2010

And you can be sure that Scrobs will see it, as JRT will want to go out in the dead of night, widdle, sniff, then bark at something...

New Year, New Colour, New Great Britain in about 85 days...

And about time too!

To celebrate our imminent exit from the disastrous EU, Scrobs has decreed that the colours of the posts, the layout etc, will change to reflect a little brown for Brexit, a smattering of other colours to welcome chums from elsewhere, a little green somewhere because I like Irish and Welsh people as well, and a subtle change from the italics because they get on my nerves - even though my handwriting (if that's what a spidery, illegible scrawl is called), is in that category, and would look similar in real life!


It'll be a fabulous year!

I sincerely hope it will be the same, or even better for all my chums out there and here!
