My Chair In the Window
Yorkshire Pudding ( has a wonderfully eclectic blog
If you have a few minutes spare take a look at his "Swimming with tadpoles" blog entry (Unforgettable things to do before you die)....its a bit of a titter
I also loved his "Quotations" entry....especially as I am a real fan of a pithy one in homage to him and after six hours finishing off hen house cleaning, pig manure shifting and cottage cleaning, I thought I would sit down in the living room window seat  after a  hot bath ( you need a real hot bath with disinfectant to get the smell of pig muck out of your crinkly bits!)...and here I will list some of my  favorite quotes....

1.I don't drink water; fish fuck in it.~ W. C . Fields

2.I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals. ~ Winston Churchill

3.Why am I so good at playing bitches? I think it's because I am no a bitch......Maybe that's why Miss Crawford always plays ladies!~ Bette Davis

4.Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort~ John Ruskin

5.Yea, my lord, I thank it (my heart), poor fool, it keeps on the windy side of care.~ Beatrice in Much ado about Nothing

6 I think there’s just one kind of folks. Folks.~Harper Lee

7.I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day~Frank Sinatra

8 Boy George is all England needs - another queen who can't dress~ Joan Rivers

9.Bisexuality immediately doubles your chances for a date on Saturday night.~ Woody Allen

10.The East End of Glasgow is like the Olympics. Lots of foreigners in tracksuits struggling to speak English~ Frankie Boyle

11. Always make the audience suffer as much as possible~ Alfred Hitchcock

12. Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.~ Mark Twain


  1. I am on break but not from cleaning... unless you want to head my way to help me.... kidding... you work so hard xo

  2. Those are SOME quotes!

    Wishing I had a tub...

  5. Here is one that I like: Friendship is like peeing on yourself: everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings

  6. John - if you really are shitting pig manure, I suggest you visit your doctor because that just ain't right! Thank you for advertising my electric blog! I am honoured that you took up the favourite quotations baton... one or two good ones that I hadn't seen before.

  7. Secret shame - I love your blog but I do look forward to reading YP's comments. Love this post :-)

  10. I am now all pink, like a pig!

  11. Enjoyed the quotes. Perfect start to my day.


  12. Thanks for the great laugh(s)! (Regarding quote #2, I had heard "fish crap in it" -- which to me is even worse.)

  13. I just love that Bette Davies one!

  14. I've just thought of another:

    "A word of thanks is like a heartbeat; a small thing, but it suffices."

  15. One of my favourites is 's**t happens, get over it!'

  16. Great quotes, but I'm surprised you didn't include any of Winston Churchill's witty gems in there.

  17. susan
    Look at the pig quote

  18. Great quotes.

    Sometimes after cleaning up after the horses my hair smells like their stall. So gross... I'm not sure I'm cut out to clean up crap every day.


  19. Son of a gun! How did I miss the name behind that second quote? (I should've known better!)

  20. Fantastic quotes!! I shall have to visit.
