You are lucky to have a local butchers.  I went down to our local butchers two days before Christmas to find it closed and the windows whitewashed.  It was there the previous Saturday.  Its the demise of local specialist shops that is so depressing

If I were to suggest that between the Earth and Mars there is a china teapot revolving about the sun in an elliptical orbit, nobody would be able to disprove my assertion provided I were careful to add that the teapot is too small to be revealed even by our most powerful telescopes. But if I were to go on to say that, since my assertion cannot be disproved, it is an intolerable presumption on the part of human reason to doubt it, I should rightly be thought to be talking nonsense. If, however, the existence of such a teapot were affirmed in ancient books, taught as the sacred truth every Sunday, and instilled into the minds of children at school, hesitation to believe in its existence would become a mark of eccentricity and entitle the doubter to the attentions of the psychiatrist in an enlightened age or of the Inquisitor in an earlier time

how did you know? Does that mean you're one of us?

we've just had a Tesco open near us, it proclaims to be the first ever green store. I was glad it opened as sadly I hate the Co_op which was our only local s'market. poor attitude staff but more to the point terrible stock mainly very short shelf life or actually out of date.
As I soon found out the Tescobs was just as pants,I now use the local farm shops.

A person was weeding their new Allotment with a scythe and accidentally
cut off the tail of A cat which was hiding in the Long grass.



The cat was rushed  along with the tail, over to TESCO'S.







Why?.................................

I very rarely go to Tescos or any other supermarket come to that but I needed to buy some new boots for use down the allotment and a couple of pairs of jeans. So I popped over to Merthyr yesterday, on arrival at Tescos I was faced near the entrance with a mountain of EASTER EGGS. Are they going bonkers or what.  No just plain Greedy. A day or so after Christmas when the birth of Jesus is celebrated and Tescos put out stock for Easter. Well it turned me right off the GREEDY SODS. I got my jeans  in Primark and the boots form a local shoe shop. My New years resolution will be"STUFF TESCOS"
               You did the right thing in supporting Primark they sell clothes and shoe shops sell footwear, I hope in the coming year when 'Tesco's have their offers on food and other sundries that you will also bypass them

Nice of you to pop in powerspade.  Now, how about that explanation.  Those were pretty ugly accusations you made.
