Return of the mack

Rejoice! Rejoice!

My broadband has been switched on. And a day earlier than they told me, too. So I’m back, with an 8.1mbps connection speed. A real bastard. It’s like shit off a shovel (never did understand that phrase – surely shit, propelled only by gravity, would still be very slow? Can anyone clarify?).

Anyway, it’s good to be back and I intend to make up for lost time. For there is much to talk about. I suspect.

Where shall I begin?

That was actually pretty short. I was thinking a month of absence or something.

What should you talk about? Well... you could start with this.

Ha! A Galloway/Castro love-in! A wealth of opportunities.

I think you've got it. I simply cannot let this pass by.

When I were but a lad, I used to help on my uncle's farm. One of the jobs was mucking out the cow sheds, using shovels to move the product of the cows to a wheel barrow. Due to the fluid nature of the product in question I have never pondered the meaning of 'like shit off a shovel'. It seems ingnorance of shit shovelling has left you at a disadvantage

Alas, it is my weakness. I was hoping this would never get out.

Shit Off a shovel comes from the poor sods in the trenches during the first World War. Because sharing your trench with excrement was undesirable, the soldiers would shit on a spade and then flick it (very quickly to avoid sniper fire) into no-mans land. Hence...

Now THAT is a definition that makes sense.
