 Okay so i am a big girl's blouse. But you too would have been shocked by what happened.

Someone (er..me) left a filter in the coffee ,machine and it had, unlike Australia, developed a thriving culture all by itself. And so I took out the various parts and took them to the Bat Room sink for cleaning. The actual coffee jug looked a bit mucky so I filled it with water and yikes!

Up floated this wriggling creature which, I swear, was, when fully extended, almost three inches long. I shouted "yikes" or something like that and emptied the jug, water and monster into the sink. It struggled manfully but eventually I had poured enough water into the sink to flush it down the plughole.  

It will take a few days before even a seasoned snake killer like myself regains his courage in the face of wildlife diversity.

Oops… this is more than a bit embarrassing for Goldstone Resources (GRL), its boss Ms Emma Priestley, hapless Nomad Strand Hanson and indeed the wider AIM Casino, aka the world’s most successful growth market. Shares in Goldstone were suspended at 1.30 PM as it appears the company does not actually exist and has not done so for half a year.
