I'm delighted to say that I never see a pop-up unless invited. The google guys take care of it for me with the excellent google toolbar pop-up stopper, which beats the utility of the same name hands down.




PS. Mark, to find out about how the olives are harvested see my posting under 'General' and turn up in the morning. :-)

Dublin Mike and others,

first apologies for the pop-up on the site, (hope they were disabled on your browser.) I saw it after I recommended it!

Mike, if it was the gender that upset you, then I did recommend it for those chatting about men in kilts. I have to say that I was almost offended by your link. I mean where is her sporran??

For the blokes, I suggest you go to the Alice Cooper page on the site I suggested and check out the splendid midi version of Schools Out. Now there's a good cover.

Do you harvest with nets and beat the olives down with a stick? Now I know why Olive trees are gnawled and twisted.

Firstly how dare you accuse me of even referring to a cover??!!**!!

Secondly, your URL almost made me puke, that's specifically the tartan that I can't bear thinking about.

What I had in mind is here:

As regards the olives, well we're 400m up and we appear to be very lucky as many farms don't have many olives after such a dry season. It's amazing that they are so early this year. We may even have to summon AI assistance next week for harvesting, as by the time family and friends arrive for Xmas holliers it'll all be too late.......as was the plan.

Best regards and the Premier Bouteille is yours.

in anything.

yes a kilt is a must you will always have something come up that you could wear it to even if it is only the rugby.

maybe not the rugby do you see how them scots boys play, makes a girl want to take a bat to their head.

Hi Dublin Mike, I'm glad the Heaven song was the Fred Astaire version and not the Bryan Adams one. I have to admit that I had a little help from my (Google) friends, but couldn't resist the first prize. Can I have the first litre of this years vintage for making the effort. The main harvest here is normally January, but we are 500m up, it'll be interesting to see how early it starts this year.

Judging by the reaction. a kilt sounds like a must for every guy's wardrobe. Angela, yjme and other kilt afficianados, visit this site immediately;

Mark of course I forgot to say that you were specifically Banned from entering given such an unfair advantage over the non-radio folk!!! HeHe. You'll be surprised to hear that I knew you would get a full score when I wrote that list, I don't believe that any other radioheads down here would know half as there's not enough Shania Twain on it.

We begin harvesting this week ( weeks early due to hot summer) and pressing right away. I'll be in touch as soon as the amber nectar (not Fosters Bruce) begins to flow.

I'll second that. Third that, fourth that. Sooooooooo sexy. And absolutely NOTHING to do with looking under the kilt I'd like to point out.  It's that swing in the walk that Mark was talking about! But on the other hand, has to be on someone with good legs, no knobbly knees thank you.

Hi Dublin Mike,

I claim my bottle of Extra Virgin Oil. Much better than Johnson's by the way ;-)))

As for class & style, how about the Italians? Whenever I try and make out that I am Italian to the Italians, they look at my British dress sense and say, yeah sure! I do remember wearing a tartan kilt with a good heavy weave to a festa in Seborga, and really enjoyed the way the swing of the material makes your hips swagger!

That is this winter's fashion, Angela. Short tartan skirts and knee-high (and higher) boots. It's everywhere - just take a look at any woman's magazine, and you can't miss it.

And, yes, I hear the French do know a thing or two about fashion :-)
