Wise woman.Restoring the Old Cottage Hospital building in Cranleigh.Grumpy has been strong armed into replacing the 16 year old plasma screen at Grumpy Towers despite him maintaining the old one was perfect.

No, Lippy's not pregnant, we have an eight week old Australian Labradoodle called Floyd.Grumpy had an almost incident free trip to Le Mans Classic in July, which turned out to be even better than he expected. In a motorsport filled month Grumpy went to the Festival of Speed at Goodwood, which included a private tour of group B rally cars.The annual Swanage trip had mixed weather and resulted in Lippy's brand new tent blowing down in a storm. Fortunately, Lippy and Dick Boy had bailed before the storm struck leaving Grumpy to put the tent away when the weather improved. The collapse may have been down to some poor pegging!Lippy and Duck Boy build a pergola for their back garden from base materials, no kit was involved. A couple of incidents, however, the structure is square and secure. More DIY is anticipated.Grumpy's been made redundant after 14 years at the same company. He's pretty happy!Whilst the pergola project was on the go, Grumpy was commentating at the Cranleigh Lions Classic Car Show. What a day! Enjoyed by all and raised a stack of cash for the Cranleigh Lions.We had a family trip to Weyfest near Farnham, mostly to see Scouting for Girls, the best festival band in the world! We saw many other bands, some previously unknown.The summer was rounded off with Christmas dinner (actually a BBQ) with some very old friends all of our children, their partners and children's children and a trip to Chet Valley Vineyards in Norfolk.We're back next week with some a more usual mix of odd stories facts and a new section from Lippy.

Not good.Grumpy has a list of life lessons from Bond villains, and Lippy uses it as a tick list to see if she matches up.If you could travel forwards or backwards in time, where would you go?Lippy and Duckboy are planning a DIY project in the garden. Grumpy's advice is to measure twice and cut once, and to take your time.Following an afternoon of Aperol Spritz at Grumpy Towers and putting a spoon in the open bottle of prosecco, Grumpy investigates whether this keeps the bubbles in.M&S are at it again with legal action over Percy Pigs.Following a chance viewing of a video on The Gram of a panda falling out of a chair in a similar fashion to Lippy many years ago, Grumpy's favourite animal is the panda.

Grumpy has a important message about the life of tyres.Grumpy has discovered the Betteridge law of headlines: "Any headline that ends in a question mark can be answered by the word no." probably due to a poorly researched news story.We talk about high-jacking social media threads with marketing messages and wonder whether they are clever responses or desperate marketing smarty-pants posts hoping to go viral?Grumpy had a memory appear on Facebook that he had no recollection of and can't find the memory. Lippy assures him that you can look back through the memories that Facebook presents.We discuss the cheese rolling at Cooper Hill, which Lippy fancies a go at.
