Rains Drains and Autocrats

An Irishman, A Greek and a Portuguese man walk into a bar and the barman says "That will be three pints of water then"...
The recession is biting here, even the village idiot has left. Speaking of village idiots, could you really imagine seeing Prince Phillip or Queen Elisabeth topless or naked? They simply didn't do things like that in their hay day. Why do Harry or Kiss Me Quick Katie believe they can? I costs every tax payer in the UK two pounds a day for Katies dresses - think she could actually do the decent thing and wear the darn things?

The Convento de Capucho, near Sintra, where stones blend seemlessly with thid convent




With over 200mm of rain this month, ginger nuts and cheese pasties are the order of the day!


Head high tree cabbages come to life after the rain.


New grass garden in front of Tipi

Finishing touches - fitting a woodburner in Picasso
Large vines will grow over the windows in summer for extra cooling

Very comfy inside, this room will be avaliable for a longer season
Always amazes me how late in the season Peppers mature






Tornados in Silves and trees thrown around like a rag doll - thank goodness it missed us! Our huge cisterna is nearly full, saving us several hundred euros next summer. The garden is green, and we are planting like crazy trying to harness the rains and fill all the gaps.

It's a dogs life, but not as we know it.....
