Leaving Luxor..

Post by Who2 »

A Question and an answer.

So now you lot can leave Luxor and return to this 'scepter'd Isle.
A word of warning 'its all gone totally tits up over here and winters coming.

My advice stay put 'what's your views ?

"will you ? wont' you ?
Ps: They say even the pubs will be running out of beer soon, don't panic!
Pss: And all during a global pandemic 'you couldn't make it up, plague of frogs next..

Farewell Egypt....it’s been a great 4 months.

So far Iv'e brought about 6 kilos of green Kent Cob Nuts over the last two weeks..
I won't tell you from which major supermarket they are from incase I create a panic.
The cob nut season will finish the end of the month...the squirrels will have stashed them for the
coming winter months of despond and forecasted misery..Whilst our Xmas cob nuts are hard and
lacking flavour...lying in the bowl next to the last uncrackable brazil nut..

I don't care, I have an electric car. I was asked what happens if the electricity fails. I replied then everyone's f****d.

Stay in Luxor is my advice!!

Made a rare expedition into Waitrose this afternoon as it was on my route, and saved me potentially haveing to queue up with petrol seekers before the car park to my normal supermarket.
Waitrose had Kentish Cob Nuts, in their husks, for £6 per Kilo (I know that was the price but not 100% sure about the weight but think I'm right). It would be interesting to know the weight of nut to husk ratio and then see how much the nuts really cost. :a60:

To buy online £9.00quid for 500grams.
£6.50 Waitrose's 1 kilo.

But you'll have to be lucky now the 'secret is out, and there are no Waitrose's in Oporto.
And they won't be in Waitrose's next week...Oh! well 'another 11 month wait... 8)

Mind You, Our Great British Public are two thick to know a good thing and will pump for 12pkts of toilet rolls...

Ps: You can all Panic! now....Panic causes diarrhea hence the need for toilet paper...

I thought we Winchester (in many ways a suburb of London) folk were ripped off by Waitrose prices, but it seems you Londoner's are ripped off even more. I'm thinking that if you bought your Cob Nuts in Kensington Waitrose they will cost £7+ per Kilo.
Choose your nuts wisely and handle with care. :a22:
If you've got a bit of land, plant a few nuts from your stash. If they haven't been sterilised to stop growth, they may just produce seedlings. You may not see them bear fruit, but they may confuse someone in a few years time.

I think you’ll find Who2’s garden is already occupied with growing stuff not available at supermarkets. :oops:
