Re: Man vs. Mouse

Maybe it works in a similar way to the plug in "pest scarers" which are supposed to rid your house of woodlice, spiders etc.

The mouse ran into what looked like a cartoon mouse-hole and was then zapped when it had paws on both pads simultaneously. I think they were more humane than the tr...

Re: Household bygones

I grew up with my mother using a pressure cooker so I'm used to the hissing. It was always used to cook and reheat the Christmas puddings although there was one memorable Christmas when she opened the cooker and found she had somehow forgotten to put the pudding in.

About to leave home at 4pm yesterday I was confronted first with a violent hail storm followed by snow. Fortunately it cleared up after about 15 minutes although it was only 3 degrees. This morning the hills I can see, which are the other side of the valley from the Long Mynd have a dusting of snow....
