Got all excited today as an envelope appeared through my door from the DVLA.
"Huzzah" I thought. "Those folks are on the ball and have returned my driving licence after the agreed 6 months surrender"
Opened said envelope and it was just a form for me to renew the car tax :'(

Off at a tangent here, but during my last 3 visits to the UK, I am always amazed at how much the Brits love their dogs.

We have 'em here in Australia, too, but it always seems to me that EVERYONE there has a woof woof!

Anyway, me old schoolmate posted me a Facebook thing that his mate was asked to leave Weatherspoons Harrogate 'cos he'd taken his dog (looks like a cocker spaniel) into the beer garden.

Seems harsh to me, but there again, here in Aus, you can't take a dog near any premises.

Probably Health & Hygiene laws especially if they serve food.

Noted the same a couple of years ago.
Some of the ugliest dogs I have ever seen, some seem to be overly large disfigured rats.
To be called pompous and arrogant - hell of a come down.
I tried so hard to be snobbish and haughty.

Yeah, you are probably right... but you can go into country pubs and there often multiple doggies in there.

Mind you, pickled eggs are the menu   ;)

As a Yorkshireman, I resemble that remark  ;D. Most shops and all food places, both here in Ireland and back home, seem to have signs up stating that dogs are not allowed, except 'assistance' dogs. I appreciate that people need 'assistance' dogs, but a dog is a dog  ???

I wouldn't want to knock a pickled egg, I might hurt myself. :'(
I think it's a good idea woof woofs are not allowed in holes, they'd have difficulty getting out. :P

Ok people nuffs enuff. No more yolks about pickled eggs. You've cracked enuff eggs for now. I think you've exceeded the shellf life of these scrambled yolks and need to move on to something more hard boiled...
