Good one . Looks like it is a small world. We all have to cough up money this time of year. Screw it!! (did you deliberately change its limerick form?)

LOL! I'd rather not imagine, thank you. Much less think about all that stuff we are breathing in! There's some odd laws and regulations in some of those European countries ... I'm pretty sure in Switzerland you can get taxed for damaging certain flowers and plants, for the odd reason that you actually might "hurt their feelings" .... yes, you heard that correctly!

I must really stop the farting humour but when Anne lise made that comment on one of my poems I simply couldn't resist writing this. I am from the Uk now live on a little Island called The Isle of Man - famous for the TT motorbike races and cats with no tails:-) hugs jan xx

LOL I will be careful where I tread when I'm out walking ... avoiding cow pats and flowers lol. As for the cow tax - I read they are doing the same thing in Denmark too:-) hugs Jan xx

I don't know if I asked you this before or not (and sorry if I forgot, I don't have the best memory!) .... but where are you from? I ask because the way you spell "tonnes" looks rather old fashioned ... I always thought it was "tons" ... funny, nonetheless.
