Is it me, or does anyone else think the police should only be called now for real howlers or a genuine lol misuse of words, rather than the endless examples of minor typos, misplaced apostrophe's (!) and poor grammar e.g. their and there, were and we're and where, your and you're, etc etc etc?
I agree; minor typos and suchlike are too commonplace to warrant comment. The ones I notice are those where someone is being pretentious or types a different word to the one intended.

A very odd thing this year. Did hear the Crowes tapping away on the roof during the very cold spells. Piles of moss outside every day.
Eventually they stopped but im curious why this was a big year for them.

I don’t have it verbatim but it was specifically to lead a MUCH more private life.

Actions taken since moving out of U.K. (excluding Opera and anything related to U.K. royalty) they appear to be doing everything but that. They wanted lots of time to spend with Archie - again that doesn’t seem to be the case

They aren't parked though. They are in a que. The cars in the que should have probably been more over to the kerb to make room on the road.

I saw those pics and thought "wow, somehow managed to get 3 cars involved and one has ended up deep in the ditch" when i realised that was actually the roof off your Audi that the brigade had nicely turned into a converterable for you! :-)
I had to admire his tenacity here. He just kept on going.

Agree with the above. We are in the final throws of selling our 11 year old home, we are the original owners and have kept it in as near as damn it as new condition throughout our ownership.
