Oh no! I’ve been robbed!

Yesterday I moved my Life on an alien planet blog to WordPress. I was astonished to find I had – what was it? 2630 plus followers on it. Continue reading

I moved my old blogger-blog ‘Life on an alien planet’ to WordPress

I just exported and imported my old blogger-blog called ‘Life on an Alien planet’ to WordPress. People were complaining they couldn’t comment. I have just started blogging there again – all my old posts from 2012 are in the Archives called ‘old posts’ – and the comments too, I think. It was amazingly simple!

Here is the link – Life on an alien planet.

In the process I found out I have 2638 followers.

I didn’t know.

Fancy that!

Please follow me there.

The difference between this blog and that one is –

About this blog (Alien planet)

This blog is where I can get very sour, very political, very depressed, very disappointed, very philosophical, very confused, very nostalgic, very cynical, very obnoxious, very old-fashioned, grumpy and irritated

and

spoil your day!

I’ve restarted THAT  blog, because THIS one is supposed to be short and sweet about frogs, and pussycats, art, gardens and happy observations. And – in the beginning, it was! Now I think it’s mostly spoiling your day too!

Chilled, not stirred

Someone gave me the suggestion I sit on ice for the pain in my buttocks. Or at least stick an ice pack down my knickers. So I did.

Yesterday.

But today the pain has moved into the back of my thighs. Continue reading

57 Varieties

Good post! Says it the way it is!

underdogs bite upwards

It used to be a Heinz slogan. I never knew what the other 56 were and really wasn’t much interested in finding out. I only remember the beans and the TV bean ads with the little fat wizard. ‘Beanz Meanz Fartz’ or something.

Naturally, all that has nothing to do with the subject of the post but if you’ve been here more than once before you already knew that. This isn’t about beans. It’s about sex. Beans and sex don’t really mix unless you are into something very kinky that I’d prefer not to know about, or you like that bit of extra turbo boost in your thrust, or part of your foreplay involves an eye-watering Dutch oven… we’ll stop there I think.

These days, ‘gender’ has joined the long list of clearly defined words misused for political purposes. Let’s clear that one up.

I have every qualification in biology…

Hey – you!


I woke this morning thinking of “friends”. I don’t seem to have many. Or rather, we have all drifted away from each other. I suddenly realised I am the one that keeps the connection (no matter how fragile) goingContinue reading
