Thanks for dropping by my blog (can't imagine how you stumbled over there, maybe you were blog-surfing).

Great top 100 list-- I need to get around to doing my own. Are the cartoons your own? They're brilliant!

sim said...

Thankyou , but please don't encourage me its like rubbing a puppies belly.

jeanette said...

Caroline B. said...

your cartoons are are very clever, so is your 100 101 list. very much enjoyed your blog.

Sam said...

One of the best 100+ things lists I've seen, and I get around. Old Horsetail Snake had a post about your site, I'm liking it, but probably not as much as you like tea. How about as much as I like tea?

Zen said...


pick one...

oh, btw what do u think of Tea?

Pat said...

Really enjoyed reading your 100 and it was an added bonus the original spelling. We share the same blog design. I do think you should have a look at the Lake District and don't completely write off dark chocolate . I have scorned it for years and now allow myself 4 squares a night.

Ha! That was hilarious. I especially liked the parts about sheep dying suddenly and not owning a phone and having non-linear conversations. Ha! (Circular comment)
