New Look - Same Old Gibberish

Yea, that's right.

Something is different isn't it.

It's this new dog sick green background and funky parchment paper like background I've got going on.

Cool isn't it?


Ah, well. We'll see how it goes for now.

If you get a headache or wake up with a fist full of someone else's bloodied hair and you think this blog might be to blame, let me know....

In other news, I have been let down by the British weather.

Tonight there was a huge solar storm that has cuased an unusal Aurora in the Northern Hemisphere.

You know the one. You will have seen all those amazing photos on the internet of bright green and blue swishes and swirls of the sky. The sort of pictures that you can't help to look at think "That's well been photoshopped ...init" or maybe something a little more akin to the Queen English.

Either way. It is one of my dreams to see this so-called Aurora with my own blood shot world weary eyes.
Tonight was supposed to be the night.

As the sciencey news kept rolling about Kp= values (no, I don't know either) and angular degrees of the northern hemisphere I studied my dictionary and kept running in and out looking north to see if I could catch a glimpse of the mythical night sky magic show.

I did not.

What I did see was a load of clouds and a sheep.

The sheep was on the ground in the field next door, not in the sky you understand.

The sheep looked at me and bleated in the way sheep do and I flicked it the V sign as is my want.

I came back inside and decided to change the way my blog looks and what you see now is what I decided was not as much of a mess as what I did about 7 minutes ago.

so.... that's that really.

Oh no. I just remembered...

We had a cake sale on site yesterday for that Red Nose day malarky and managed to raise £300 which is pretty good and should help to buy Lenny Henry some new jokes and hire a hitman to stop Johnathan Ross from being... well - just from being (if you know what I mean).

That's it for now.

Coming Next - A Secret Is Revealed!


  1. Well Cool Mr H . . . . .Great minds think alike or should I say knackered brains think alike. As it happens the top half of our kitchen walls are very close to this colour. The advantage being I can throw pea soup at the walls, I dont like pea soap much.

    I have ventured out into the dark and cold to look for the Aurora but although we have a clear(ish) sky I have not seen it. We did see it last year in Scotland on its second and not quite so spectacular night which was rather good.

    Anyway Mr H if you read of a foolhardy man dying out in the cold on the English Welsh border because he was looking for things in the sky you will know who it is now.

    1. I'm going to give one more chance before i lock up tonight. It was very clear before an I tried to take some pictures of the moon and stars but my camera is not good enough.
      Good luck and let me know if you see anything spooky.

    2. I do like the new look Mr H . . . . .

  2. There's something different going on here but I can't quite put my finger on it. I know, have you had a new haircut?

    Well done for raising £300 for comic relief Mr H but there's not enough money in the world, that will ever make Lenny Henry funny again.

    Ooh the secret. This better not be an anti-climax...as the actress said to the bishop. (god I'm so old. :)

    1. It's a biggie (the secret that is) and a climax is assured (wait... is that rude? either way I'm good with that)

  3. Mr Bumferry, when I saw your new Blog colour scheme, a wave of nostalgia washed over me as I thought I was back in the 80's looking at my parent's kitchen. Let's remember that the colour was tragically out of fashion in the 80's, but nowadays, it's retro-chic or something. I don't know, but I think you might be cool again.

    1. Mr Bumferry? that's a bit formal isn't it? Well, If I am cool agai... WHOAWHOAWHOA. cool AGAIN. When did stop being hip and funky? I'm down with the gangbangers and mofo's and ho-dogs and tea-baggers. I even wear my jeans below my bum, although thats only when i'm half way through putting them on and have to pull them up Simon Cowell style.

  4. Spent some time looking last night Mr H but saw nothing, one of the neighbours had some stupid laser show going on filling the sky with green lights and fancy curtain sort of effects. I tried shouting at them but they pretended they didn't know anything about it.

    I lie it was just dark and a bit cold, it reminded me of last summer.

    1. I know. rubbish wasn't it. I'm going to write to my local MP and demand a full page apology in next weeks edition of Grumpy bugger news. :O(


How did this get here?
