1 England V DeadDad 2

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

I was working behind the bar during the World Cup (in fact, the last 2 but that’s irrelevant to the story) and I was quite friendly with the regulars. Especially this one chap, Carl, who this ‘blog’ is based on.

Carl turned up to every Man Utd and England match he could, that was shown at our pub. He used to bring a tobacco tin to every England match. The tin lid was decorated with a St George design and a British Bulldog in the centre. Inside the tin was, of course, Carl’s dad. Carl made a promise to his dad that he would take him to every England match he could. This sounds quite a thoughtful thing to do but….

As the place was getting quite busy and England scored their first goal against the opposition Carl had shouted to me, ‘Double rum for m’ Dad please, Steve?’. So I hurried and plonked a double rum in front of him, took the cash and carried on with my duties… Again a big cheer and …‘Double rum for m’ Dad again please, Steve?’ So I did.

3 goals, then 4 to England then a fifth each with a double rum. Next thing I saw were flames licking the front of one of the tills where Carl is calmly sat staring at his ‘Dad’. I rushed over and asked what the hell is happening. At the same time England scored for the final time and Carl eagerly answered, ‘Nothing mate. Looks like m’ Dad needs another rum.’

I swiftly poured a large rum and passed it over, to my surprise, Carl poured this into the flames, which I saw coming out of the tin, luckily extinguishing the fire that was coming from the tin.

I then discovered that Carl’s Dad’s Ashes were in that tin. When his dad was alive he knocked back a double rum each time England scored. Carl was pouring the spirit into the tin and setting fire to it to evaporate the liquid.

This was Carl’s way of still celebrating ‘The Match’ with his old man.

Is this funny or sick?? Air your views!!!

Cleaning sponge domestic cleaning tool

Cleaning sponges are a very useful domestic cleaning tool that as many uses and can best be described as quite a versatile cleaning tool.   Cleaning sponges can come in various shapes and sizes although most commonly they can be purchased in an oblong shape. 

Cleaning sponges are used to sponge down floor tiles, wall tiles, skirting boards, architraves, doors, windowsills, worktops as well as many other household items.  

Cleaning sponges are usually used with a bucket of warm soapy water.  Simply dip the sponge into the warm soapy water, ring out so the sponge is damp instead of dripping wet and then wipe over the surface that requires cleaning.  Once done redip the cleaning sponge into the warm soapy water and keep repeating this process until your dirty surface is clean. 

You should always remember to clean your cleaning sponge thoroughly at the end of each cleaning session.

Vacuum cleaners and household hoovers cleaning tool

Vacuum cleaners and household hoovers are an essential domestic cleaning tool for every household that possesses carpets or mats.  Vacuum cleaners come in various shapes and sizes, four very well known makes are Dyson, Hoover, Henry and Kirby.

Vacuum cleaners are used to pick up the loose dust and dirt that settles daily onto your carpeted areas.  Vacuum cleaners work by suction quickly sucking up the dirt as you carefully walk around pushing the vacuum cleaner over your carpet. 

You should always remember to clean your vacuum cleaner on a regular basis after use to prevent your machine from getting bunged up and possibly burning itself out.

There are even robotic vacuum cleaners about these days as well as vacuum systems that can be built into the walls of your house.

Cobwebber household cleaning tool

Cobwebber household cleaning tool

A very useful household cleaning tool is the cobwebber also known in some quarters as a tickling stick.  The comedian Ken Dodd is famous for using a cobwebber or tickling stick on stage as part of his very funny comedy routines! 

Like the name suggests cobwebbers are used mainly for ridding cobwebs from the walls and ceilings of your household.   The cobwebber is just a fluffy stick that enables you to reach those awkward spots alot easier.   Some people tend to improvise by using the wand from their vacuum cleaner to get rid of cobwebs while other people just use a small stick with a cloth or a sock hung over the end.

Always remember to clean your cobwebber outside after using it because if you do not keep it nice and clean you will end up making more mess as dirt starts to fall off it!

Dusters cleaning cloths

Dusters cleaning cloths

Probably the best known of all domestic cleaning and cleaning in general tools is the everyday common household duster.  There is rarely ever a cleaning job that is undertaken where at some point or other a duster is not required.

Like the name suggests dusters or cleaning cloths are used for dusting furniture, skirting boards, doors, door furniture, worktops, window cills and almost every other household item that you can think of.

Dusters are supplied in various sizes and colours although there is no real importance attached to this.   What is very important although is that you must periodically keep your duster clean by washing it on a regular basis otherwise you will end up spreading dirt, dust and potentially germs from one area of your household to another.
