We have a problem of feral pigeons round my way. Some feckless numbnuts released a load of white doves and they are breeding under peoples solar panels.
One of the methods I use to deter them is to hurl avacado stones at them on the roof. They are pretty good for it, they have a certain amount of heft, the bounce around erratically and make a bit of noise but aren't hard enough to damage the solar panels.
The trouble is, quite often they roll off into the gutter and now I have a couple of what look suspiciously like avacado seedlings growing from the gutter.
Ipswich Town are reportedly very close to signing versatile fullback and occasional midfield destroyer Geoff Sentence.
Sentence has wealth of Sunday league experience, albeit some way back in time, complemented by much recent 5 a side expertise.
With an eye for a pass a solid but clean tackling technique and an unblemished disciplinary record (only booked once but the ref couldn't be bothered to fill in a report so that doesn't count), he should be an asset to the club.
The two parties are not very far apart with the club only having to ask.
Which they haven't.
But that's all they need to do and the deal is as good as done.
The highlights of which are that if we implement a no blame culture for maternity deaths, as they do in Sweden, it would lead to improved safey and lower deaths in maternity units and save a shed load of money. Win-win.
How come i remember him as being something of a tool whilst he was health secretary?
