Malc's handy household tips - 1

Listening to: Chain of Fools (Aretha Franklin)
Weather: Cold, sunny, showery
Birds: Squadron of at least 100 barnacle geese on the bottom field

Tired of your smelly old Land Rover? Want to get rid of the smell of wet dog and trainee pig farmer's feet?

Then give up the day job, buy a croft 600 miles away, pretend to be a pig farmer, buy barley to feed the pigs and let the sacks linger in the vehicle overnight.

Next morning. . . mmmmmm, barley-fresh Land Rover!

You'll all be doing it soon.

hmmm... barley, never tried that. mulch and wood bark both work pretty well too!

PS, I like the new adam ant rooster - what do the girls think of him?

Yes, my hay-filled Peugeot 106 (perfectly sized to fit four small bales) is quite the fragrant delight...

You can see a new brand appearing on the supermarket shelves - rustic fragrances for hygiene in the home.
It would make quite a nice change from all that grapefruit and melon smelling stuff :)

Thanks for the idea Malc - I've been trying to figure how to get the goat smell out of my Jeep.

Of course, you could leave there to ferment and...hic!

Frankly, the smells in my car are so minor that it wouldn't be worth the hassle of getting the pigs, for whom I would have to buy the barley.
