Don't blame it on the sunshine

Yes those adorable Health and Safety Dogs are back to warn you of the hazards of heat!

Over to you Mutt and Jeff

We should all be listening to those dogs and drinking lots of water too.

Doesn't it mean you're having a stroke if your head bursts into flames? That's what I understood from the ad anyway.

You'll definitely not get a hug now!

Brilliant.

It looks suspiciously like CB's getting his revenge for not getting the GW gig.

Google's also putting in a Sock/GAMI vote as WV says ponshedi which I think means Google will come and do it for you if you ask nicely ;)

PS You get your wish, someone's put a recording of us singing Shine on You Tube. Sans basses most of the time unfortunately. There's a better recording of Imagine though. I've put the links in over at mine if you're interested...

Nearly, Arabella but not quite.
I was actually born in 1863 and (until the introduction of the climbing Boys Act in 1875) earned a decent living as a chimney sweep.
After that I turned to gardening.
That makes me 146 this year which is still considerably younger than N.Colborn (who was one of Wellington's aides at the Battle of Waterloo).

I think the H&S dogs are going to deal with the problems of dehydration next week, Fat Rascal. Lightning stroke for Toby I think!

VP, I just watched Shine on Youtube I feel really jealous of people who can sing. I love singing but can't and the Bedsock always looks very pained if I start up. :(

James I think your birthday is on 30th July and am I right in believing it's the big 50 this year? I think everybody should mark the date to give you a birthday blog to help ease you through this difficult time. I found a quote from E.W. House (who he?)

"After a man is 50 you can fool him by saying he is smart, but you can't fool him by saying he is pretty!"

Nevermind - I think you look pretty!

Arabella - NAH doesn't like me singing either even though I can sing! I have to sneakily put the practice CD on when he's out.

We've got some health and safety nuts on our street. My other half is helping to organise a Big Lunch street party and the committee have banned me from having a barbecue because 'we might catch e-coli and children may choke on burgers because they get over excited'. The world has gone mad.

Martyn my heart sank when I read an article on the Hort Weekly sight about a woman walker who had been knocked unconscious by a tree branch falling on her on land owned by the Environment Agency. She is trying to sue them for £300,000. This seems to me to put the whole right to roam stuff under threat if people are going to start suing whoever they can if they trip over a mole hill and break their ankle or whatever! The land isn't a regulated park area like say Kew where there might be some expectation that the environment is kept safe and controlled. It's crazy.. and very depressing. Any sympathy I might have felt for the woman evaporated when I read she was suing.. sometimes we should accept that sh*t happens.

Both Joe and Toby look hot but not in a good way. ;-) James on the other hand shouldn't worry his pretty little hat about turning 146 as he doesn't look a day over 146 and a half. Honest!
