Just say no. <sniff>

Me and tobacco, my final addiction apart from a sufficiency of port, said farewell on Sunday 12 May 1991. My last blast was a small cigar in the Cock of the North, Henleaze, also known as the Kebab and Calculator, and now more sedately as the Westbury Tavern so as not to upset anybody. Me and Class A were never really an item - they made me feel far too good, so I went no further. The chemical stockpile they call my breakfast turns my wee orange, which is as close to recreational as I am likely to get. Breaks the ice at parties.

Such is life.

From the Daily Mail - a solution to the lorry driver shortage which seems news about 30 years out of date in fact and sentiment.  Enjoy.

Lovely. Let's see what a diet of fry-ups and Yorkie bars does - or is that out of date too? For the record, my former chimney sweep was a Miss England contestant, not that you would have known behind the overalls and gas mask.
