I cannot believe 30 of you have posted already and I have yet to buy the RT. Re snow, hope you are all surviving. There has been none yet in Glasgow but I expect we will get our turn!

I am still stuck on one from last week!! No surprise there then.

17D Number landing outside to blaze a trail. I have ?I?N?E? I cannot believe my ones across are wrong. Any help appreciated.

Good Afternoon, All. Not too terrible today, although it took me longer to do 3 down than it really should have done.

One of the beauties of island life, is that the salt water all around keeps the snow at bay. I think it must be about three years since we saw any actually lying. My sympathy to all who are not so blessed. Number two son who only passed his driving test last July is now learning new tricks to overcome the snow in Rochdale.

I am having fun watching digging up the road to lay new (not my type, but the sort that carries water). I think this is a male thing, enjoying watching other people work. It only takes a hole in the road, for us to gather round and offer advice. My pearl of wisdom today, was to tell the man down the hole that he should get out before they started to fill it in again. I think he may have said thank you - it may have been something else, though, because I am sure I heard the word off.

Hope all are well.

Best wishes.

Hi pipesmoker
You remind me of this quote by Jerome K. Jerome:
'I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.'

A worthy quote, indeed, chrise. I think it applies most aptly to men working in the streetn - where two or three are gathered round a hole, as someone once nearly said.........

Pipesmoker. Do you remember the song about a hole in the ground? Don`t dig there, dig it elsewhere. You`re diggin` it round an` it oughter be square..............`
Same singers as `Right said Fred`. Mag.
