Reducing Ones Own Carbon Footprint...

Post  Hugh Jardon on Sat Jun 09, 2012 4:51 pm

I will ensure that I take fewer and more shallow breaths, as I lay next to the pool (private...come on...I'm not bloody lefty) on my grand vacances in Lanza soon!
That should help to off-set the amount of beastly carbon spat out by that beastly plane and crappy hire car!

the crayon footprints aren't too bad.
It's the ones where a toddler has had an explosive shite and it's shot right up its back..down its legs is then walked all over the place..they are a bit of a 'mare!

As i don't believe these lies on carbon.....I make an effort to make my carbon footprint as big as possible

Next I am getting one of those huge American style smokers built in the back garden - they look cool

Whey hey!..... NICE!

We currently have both a gas and a charcoal BBQ...both which I light with a blowtorch.
When they both go titts up that would be high on my list.....

Sorted the range....simply got a piece of right angled brushed ali profile...and used it to create a false front on the current raised plinth.

God...I'm bloody good, though that was the better half's idea!

Tell me about it! my granddaughter did that, only it ran down her legs into her wellies. Me and my son did a runner and left my poor daughter-in-law to deal with it.

Great aren't they?
I like the wellies slant on this...did it make a lovely squelching noise?....imitating your grandaughter a few seconds earlier?
Have you had the puke in the hair, running down your back one?
Christ...it was bloody awful.

Small jardon was feeling a bit dodgy..I had him over my shoulder...taking him for a bath- and he honked!
All over the back of my head...down my shirt..... then I honked..but managed to get it all down the loo!

My dog is a serial farter. Could I get a government grant to have her corked?

you mean she drops her guts into the weetabix?

You should connect her to the gas grid....and collect a bit of the feed in tariff!

She waits until I am nicely relaxed in my armchair, sits really close...and then lets rip. Strewth...a field full of cows couldn't produce such a volume of methane...and she's only a Jack Russell X Beagle.

Beans make you farty.
Sprouts do much the same.
If you let rip a winner
In the middle of dinner
Just say that the dog is to blame.

lovely!

I let some crackers go in B&Q today...... I know, it's puerile but great fun all the same!
Another trick is to let one go near the boiler and ask the better half if they can smell gas?

Blazing Saddles has been on a few times this week.... still love the beans scene!
