Merry Christmas

Post by grendel on Fri Dec 23, 2011 7:25 pm

Merry Christmas and enjoy the turkey, believe it or not they're very common here too. But they put them in the noodle soup, only. I'm off from work for 2 1/2 weeks so heading for Thailand and a beach, if I find some wifi, I'll visit the forum on my Ipod.

Just got a delivery of 9kg of flint, cost a fortune to ship it, will pick it up from the post office tomorrow morning, only a £10 duty + tax though, must have left customs wondering why someone's importing non precious rocks.

Last week went to Ankor Wat in Cambodia, hit a Cambodian border market and bought a fake elephant tusk. They make them from cow bone and sell them to naive punters for £25. I went to the several stalls and asked for a 'fake' one, all insisted they were real (they're not) till one cottoned on and said yes the ones on the stall are real but the ones in the box under it are fake. He sold to me for £2 (better than £30 + for an antler or moose billet). So when I get back from holidays I will be knapping again.

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. cats look down on us but pigs treat us as equals.

Stupidity got us into this mess, why can't it get us out
