    Things that made you smile 6th Jan 14 at 1:31 PM
    We have a what's irritating you thread, and I think we need a thread for things that have made us smile, etc.

    Me - well, we have a puppy who is now 8 months. I let her out this morning and was hoping to keep the door open for her to come in. But it was too windy. I was stood by the door waiting for her, expecting to see her come down the steps.

    I then heard a tap at the door. She'd come down the steps, which I hadn't seen and tapped to be let in. She also taps to go out.

    I'd not received any Spam in my email account for over a week (Yahoo) then this afternoon 80 appeared.. some dating back to Christmas Day.....Very satisfying deleting them all in one fell swoop!

    Husband chatting with mother-in-law on phone, advises son "wave!" and son does. Then stops & thinks & grouses, as we all laugh...

    Just as well noone in the family in named Neil, really.

    Stumbling through the dark into the office to the sound of the dawn chorus equally busily getting on with its morning.

    I may be the only one in earshot heading straight to the kettle though.

    Took Bails out for a wee last thing on Wednesday night and as soon as we were out the back door she was on high alert.

    Maybe a hog thinks I, but no, no hogs around.

    Maybe a cat then, she was pulling and growling like she does when there's cats around, but I couldn't see any.

    We got out the front and I shone me torch round the green and there it was, a fox, running round the outside edge of the green, giving us as wide a berth as possible.

    I was particularly chuffed as I thought all the local foxes had gone!

    Reading this American mum & nurse, Meggy Doodle, just fell anti-vaxxers
    I think that people who don’t want to vaccinate should have the freedom to do so. If they think ‘Big pharma’ is just trying to turn a profit or poison us all... they should be allowed to believe that.

    But the caveat to that is this:

    They should NOT go to the doctor or the hospital when they get sick, looking for treatment.

    Big pharma makes those antibiotics we are going to pump you full of when you are about to die from sepsis.

    The steroids and epi we might give you to save your life from your anaphylaxis? Yep, big pharma is behind that too.

    That inhaler you need to treat your kids asthma? Better pass on that as well, because... you guessed it... brought to you by Big P.

    Having a massive stroke? Can’t talk or move half your body? Well no TPA for you. Even though it could potentially reverse every symptom of your stroke in minutes...Because big pharma is making a killing on that stuff.. I think it’s like $25k a pop.

    And when you get diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, don’t even think about chemo....

    Code Blue?? Don’t expect us to crack open the crash cart! It’s just stocked full of meds we need to get your heart beating again. Where do you think they come from?

    I think you get the picture.

    An article I saw online about the newest "challenge" for idiots people to complete and that's the Blind Box Alligator challenge.

    People are attempting to catch alligators while blindfolded
