    Personally I never dress for church. (Besides which, wearing good gear for nicking lead off the roof isn't a good plan.) :teef:

    Twitter has suggested that I might like to follow the Ideological Warfare Center of the Saudi Ministry of Defense.

    I seem to be getting offers from the Swan Shopping Centre, Yardley, Gillette Razor subscriptions and Ironman 70.3. How little they know me.

    I am being told that "there is an award-winning theatre on your doorstep".

    This has prompted me to perform two checks.

    1, This theatre is sixty seven miles away.

    2, My doorstep is still where it has been for decades.

    1. I'm not that way inclined and 2. I have trouble remembering my own name at times, so won't be signing up to something I need a password for so it will help me remember my password!

    You need to avoid those ‘password remember’ software producers like the plague. Unless of course you want to drive an Aston Martin with machine guns in the wings and ejector seats. (That might sound good, but being an extra in ‘Killing Eve’ has a downside.) :heyhey:

    I'm being offered an "informed water bottle" which is a "source of healing energy".

    It will "energize, revitalize and restructure" my water....

    I'm getting weird advertising about gardening. (Which I don't do, I've got a gardener, his name is God !!)

    The first thing was something called a 'Fake Rake !!' A rake especially designed for artificial grass !! :eek:
    Then there was a sort robot predator bird, which you fasten to a fence, it's head nods and rotates and frightens off birds. :eek:
    Then there was a solar powered pest repeller, which uses bright flashing LEDs and ultrasonic sounds if it detects motion in your garden. :eek:

    What sort of pseudo Orwellian brave new world are we moving into ? :tumbleweed:

    I'm being offered "tactical shorts".


    I like to operate more strategically in the trouser area.

    I'm currently being offered 'wooden horse sheds'.
    Should I ever need stabling for a Trojan horse I'll know where to go.
