Now, as I was saying…

Hello peeps! If any of you still have my RSS doodah in yer reading whatsit then this missive will pop up and no doubt lead to mucho head-scratching and memory searching. But for now, just be assured that yes I am back and will post more soon!

No there will be no garden posts as I’ve given up on that slug-infested shithole. Yes there will be swearing. No there won’t be any building stuff as the extension is done, dusted and forgotten. And finally, yes there will be pictures of my little lad. By which I don’t mean my old chap. By which I don’y mean my John Thom… Look! I mean my son and heir! Bloody hell, you lot are hard work.

I wonder who’ll be first to comment. Heh. I wonder if anyone will comment…


Burro in Print – Third Time’s A Charm!

Yeeha! My third post for the local newspaper’s blog is online now (and in print, I hear but the free paper never reaches us so I’ve not seen that yet). Pop over to the LEP Green Section and read all about my War on Slugs!

Josie has my fourth post and that should appear in a couple of weeks, whilst Stu has agreed to write for her as well 🙂

Burro in Print: 2nd post and still not sacked!

Blimey folks, yet more from me in my local paper! Surely someone will realise I’m winging it? I keep expecting it at work, but no one seems to clock on I’m just a cheeky a chancer 🙂

Read my amazing* second post here – ahhh, go on now… go on… go on…

* honest 😉

Calling all Spammers and Spambots…

Please stop offering me porn, especially gay and lolita as I am a) straight and b) prefer my ladies older (although not grannies, so please stop that too). If I wanted porn, I would just type ‘porn’ into google and stand back as the barrage of naughtiness filled my life to bursting – I do not need you to constantly offer such things to me.

Instead, how about spamming me with stuff I might actually need and want to look at? Try… oh, let’s see… try gardening, you fuckwits. Maybe eco-products. Or books on Second Life. Maybe, just maybe then I’d be fooled into clicking on a link to some dodgy scamming site in Russia, but whilst you offer me unlimited upskirt tiny teen photos and live webcams to hairless gay boys I wouldn’t hold your collective breaths. Idiots.

Work – Arsebuggery!

Hi all, work are having a major Orwellian crackdown on staff web/email usage so I won’t be able to blog during the day anymore. Mean, small minded swines. The fecking IT crowd who are undertaking this can surf and email all they want, but the rest of us prols obviously can’t be trusted.

So, given that I’m busy in the house right now (preparing…) I won’t be around for a bit. I’m sure a new patteren will settle in soon, but until then I’ll be running silent 😦


p.s. I’ve also altered some spam settings so don’t worry if your comment doesn’t appear right away.

Burro in Print: I’m Famous!

Bloody hell! They put it up on their blog! Well I’ll go t’foot of our stairs 🙂

Reeeead Alllll AAAAAAboooout It! David Burro Says “It ain’t easy being green!”

I’ve aalso been asked to write for a SL magazing and website, but more of that on my mysterious ‘other blog’…


Burro in Print!

Well faithful Burro fans, it done. I have spoken to the local reporter (Hi Josie – I see you were taught by Andy – Ahhhh, the stories I could tell you about Andy…) and as of next week I’ll be contributing to the local paper’s blog. I don’t think it’s paid – I haven’t really asked. Should it be?

Anyhoos, I’ll keep you posted, loyal readers.

Toodle Pip,  as my mate Anni would say 🙂

Lord Burro, gardener to the stars.

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes

Jesus! I couldn’t eat this bugger! It’s all I could do not to call the local priest in and have it exorcised before driving a stake through its twisted heart!

A Coke Moment…

Bloggers for a positive global change award memeRight… I’ve been tagged again. Thank’s KW 😉

I’m dead busy right now so I’ll have to keep my tags brief (unlike the time I had to tag my briefs because of that strange man who liked my washing…). This meme comes to me via Kitchen Witch (and a damn fine Witch she is too) from this worthy site.

My five sites are…

1) Bean Sprouts – bloody great site full of useful, real-life stuff. If Mel and her family can do it, we all can!

2) Self Sufficient-ish – cracking site that will inspire and inform.

3) Honeybee Network – protecting rural knowledge for all.

4) Down The Lane – Richard downshifted… so can you!

5) Moosey’s Country Garden – Huge site with tonnes of help and advice.

That’s it folks – gotta dash. Check these links out and have a flick through the ones to the left as I had to leave loads of brilliant people and their blogs out 🙂

6 Hamsters and a Drum Machine

Bert the Wild Burro Hamster.Hullo, Bert here. It saddens me to think that some people out there – maybe not you, but maybe, just maybe, you – think hamsters are nothing more than stupid balls of fur whose only input into the world is to eat seeds and pop out tiny balls of poo. Well let me tell you that some of us are more than that. Some of us, yes, are even less but I’m not here to talk about my cousins from ‘dawwwn saaff’. After all, if all hamsters had little more intellect than the mud-soaked dolts they interview at Glastonbury every year then who the hell would have invented magnets, fuzzy felt and Japan? No one, that’s who!
Anyhoo, in an effort to promote the intellectual superiority of hamsters over you half-naked monkeys, may I please present to you (by way of El Gordo, only a 3-quarters naked monkey in anyone’s book) the Marvellous Hamster Powered MIDI Musicbox!*

Bert – you looking at me?

* Note how the hamsters who devised, designed, built and operated the device have cleverly written their paper from the point of view of one of you humonkeys. Clever, huh?
