For thousands of years the enormous rock below has sat in the ground at the Greek Hovel, situated about a yard and a half from where the rat room used to end. It was almost a feature.But as as we seek to extend the rat room by two yards it had to go. But there would be something wrong about hacking it to pieces and discarding it don't you think?

And thus we have not only preserved it but will be using it in its entirety as we build the new longer walls on the rat room. Okay that will not leave them neat and symmetrical.And indeed it might even reduce the floor space by a few square inches but that is neither here nor there. Using stones that were to hand is how houses used to be built. It is environmentally friendly to have to fetch fewer stones from places outside of our lands and it just somehow feels right.

Greta Thunberg and the Emperor’s new clothes

Project Greta Thunberg is a fraud. I do not blame the poor 16 year old Swedish girl who predicts that we have just months to save the planet from irreversible global warming, for she is quite obviously very unwell and also being manipulated. She is part of a fraud but right now the great and the good simply sit back and bask in the glory of the liberal media as they admire Emperor Greta’s new, planet friendly, clothes.
