  1. A pleasant surprise. Found you while
    going through Technorati. Top ten pet hates: On the same wave length except
    perhaps Item 9 "Dentists". Consider them a necessary evil. When it comes to their bills, yes I hate them. Top ten likes: Afraid I'm unfamiliar with most of them. Tetley's Bitter, a
    resounding yes. Had the pleasure of walking on Yorkshire Dales (Ilkley to Bowness on Windermere). Re: Top ten people, I posted an entry in my blog today about Dylan Thomas!

  2. I found you while surfing for interesting blogs. I like it, good content. I've left an invitation to you to visit me if you are into ebooks - Thanks, Neil

  3. I'll play but I can't think tonight... I'll get back.
