    Having done Breaking Out for my previous pic, how about Breaking In...

    And I resisted the urge to add any Lego... ;)

    "And I resisted the urge to add any Lego..." However...
    Now that's just weird!

    Apparently, a serpents egg hatched by a cockerel produces a basilisk.
    A conker hatched by a chicken? Dunno, but I bet even Hermione would have trouble with it. And Hagrid would definitely want one!;)

    My brain isn't working Steve because I thought "but you've already posted the chick in the conker shell"...duh. Still, I enjoyed going back over the thread again so it wasn't a total waste.

    Since my contribution was taken in 2005, rather than September 2016, it's obviously disqualified from any judging that may take place.........................

    The rules (such as they are) state
    So it would be difficult to disqualify any post and we can all enjoy whatever someone else wants to show us

    Did you forget to bake it in the oven or soak it in vinegar or whatever we did in our youth before h&s started to ban conkers.

    Pardon my french, but bugger the fencing! I'm far more concerned about that massive spider infestation in the background!

    Love the whole thing! The colours are delicious and the spiders'webs are the icing on the cake. Reminds me of how my front lawns used to look on occasions. Where I am now, they just love the wood cladding on my new home! I'm forever out there with the broom and cloth.
    Great picture, thanks.

    My kettle died a couple of years ago and one of the ladies from work who was nipping out to Tescos offered to pick me up a new one while she was there. Good to her word she arrived back with a new electric kettle. I took it home and started using it - that's when the odd stuff started happening.

    The kettle had a little bell that would go 'ding!' to let me know that it'd boiled. No problem there.

    It got strange when the kettle started to go 'ding!' at other, seemingly random, times. I told myself that it was probably due to some sort of thermostat, or possibly even a bi-metallic strip inside it warming and cooling. That's what I told myself.

    It probably reached its height when I was awoken at 3:15am one morning by the kettle repeatedly going 'ding ding ding ding!'. I decided that steps had to be taken. I got out of bed, walked downstairs and calmly explained to the kettle that it was a very good and useful appliance, but if it didn't stop waking me up it'd have to go.

    We've now reached a kind of entente. I'm careful to always thank the kettle when it boils water for me and, in return, the kettle has stopped its nocturnal chiming.

    Now, you may think that I'm just making this up, but I give you my word that it's absolutely true. If you're after an independent witness then I suppose you could contact the plumber who fixed my heating last Winter - he thought I was barmy when I offered him a brew and then said "thank you kettle" when the water boiled!

    Cheers, Jeff

    All sorted and drinking tea:):) but it does say a lot about society in general that the hardware shop in a small seaside town finds it worthwhile to stock an extensive range of kettles
