Category Archives: Blogroll


I visit the blog of a chap named “Gitwizard” most every day.

He is a bike rider, a tree hugger, a bit of a photographer, a WWOOFer and an all-round nice guy.

He also creates buttons for some members of his blogroll.

I was stunned when I received an email from him yesterday asking if I minded a button he had created being used on his blog.

Mind? – – – MIND? I’m so chuffed I’m rolling down the rails! Whoo hooo!

And I notice I’m in the company of Daddy P and Blond oop Norff. That is exalted company indeed.

Photo Hunt; Shadow

Just a simple palm tree shadow on some lawned ground.

Taken this morning in a panic because I didn’t have any suitable shadows. Only reflections.

Poulet Sir Prize Award

One of my favourite bloggers is Honjii.

For some reason she seems to think I deserve an award.

This much coveted award is for bloggers who have a sense of humor and are smarter than a and not too chicken to say what they think.

1. Proudly display the award on your blog with a link back to Honjii and a link back to the blogger, along with his/her name, who chose to award your blog.
2. Bestow this award, along with the rules, on a minimum of three blogs.
3. Contact the bloggers you’ve chosen and let them know of their incredibly life-altering good news.
4. Swear on your first born, or whatever you hold dear, never to mention these blogging awards are created by other self-serving bloggers trying to get more traffic altruistic bloggers who wish nothing more than to acknowledge a blog well done.

In keeping with the rules of the award, I hereby pass it on to DaisyFae, Daddy Papersurfer and  the thinking woman’s bit of crumpet, Kyknoord

An “In” Joke

I do apologise for this.

I have a blog-fiend who will find this of interest. When he isn’t dunking gingernuts.

Everyone else may carry on as usual. The quiz will be up soon.

Censored Nude Camel Toes and Beavers

Every day I check the statistics on my blog. Just the total visitors. After all I am not a fanatic.


But occasionally I look at the other statistics WordPress provides. It is interesting (to me) to see what brings people to my blog.

So here are the ten most viewed articles on the archive over the past 30 days.

Pornography, Censorship and Art. Same old, Same old!

The Best Camel Toe Picture Ever Taken

Nude Gymnastics and Swimming

Second Best Camel Toe Picture Ever Taken

Shaving Her Beaver

Nine Inch Nails Meets Harry Potter

The Seven Dwarves

Blonde Chick with a Nice Pussy

What Is The Speed Of Light?

It is fascinating that top of the list is a serious article although I realise it has only gained popularity because Google decided to use the image of a young girl from that post as their top image for a search on “Bill Henson”.

I’m not sure just why an image lifted from “Looks Just Like” has jumped up into sixth spot or why three innocuous cartoons are in the list.

The entry which leaves me shaking my head is at number 10. Out of 3,399 posts on the archive (this is post No. 3,400) a serious – well, sort of –  post on science rates this highly. It doesn’t seem to fit with the other nine which could be grouped as “Sex, Celebrity and Censorship”.

A Welcome Gift

I dropped in at my favourite female curmudgeon’s blog a couple of days ago, in the midst of a huge “Connectivity Issue” which was afflicting my ISP (Internet ‘Scuses Provider), and found an unexpected gift. The best sort.


Except I AM not, and have NEVER BEEN “Lovely”. I will accept “handsome”, “irresistible”, “masculine” or possibly, in a pinch and with a minimum of chunderous reaction, “Cute”.

But NOT “Lovely”.

I do appreciate the thought and now must find 15 people to pass it on to.

This is MY list and I am not taking into account the lists of other bloggers. So, if you end up with more than one of these little roses, take it as a compliment that you have more than one friend. (You’re lucky!)

Oh yes, first the RULES!

The rules for this rolling award are passed down as follows:

1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.

2. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you love and/or have newly discovered.

3. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

4. Use the One Lovely Blog award picture from my blog, on your blog to let everyone know that you have one lovely Blog!

So, my fifteen choices as lovely blogs are; [pause for drumroll]

First and second, my Posse of Daisy’s, daisy fae and daisy mae.

And, of course the bookelicious Woo.

Next, photographers extraordinaire, KymRJ Flamingo, and Helen Edith, and the incurable bookaholic, Cathy , then, in no particular order of sexual orientation, nationality, alphabeticity or age are casa az, SilverstarPuddock, The GitwizardLinda, Daddy P, Wandering Coyote, and the imaginitive  Petramichelle.

Ok, I’ll Be Brave!

As a part of my occasional series on the tasteful subject of urinals, may I present another scary set of these necessary items.
