    Floppy Lip

    I've returned to cornet after about 20 years, I was playing horn up until 5 years ago. Has anyone else had that thing where the lip gets so much worse before it gets better? Please tell me it gets better again? Still got the tone but no stamina, and lots of black notes make it go stiff. As it...

    Instrument fettler

    Not sure where to put this - does anyone know of a good instrument fettler in the South Wales area? My dear old B&H needs a bit TLC. No I'm not going to buy a new one. Not until I get some pay checks under my belt. BMB

    The Badger May Be Back

    Please help

    I have been kidnapped by Rob Hibberd to Tokyo using fluffy pink handcuffs. I am being forced to work as a geisha but the make-up is ruining my fur. Please deposit money in my secret Swiss bank account to pay for my fare home. Unfortuately, for reasons I am not at liberty to divulge, I need to...

    How sweet!!!!

    As I sit here, typing away, retorting and riposteing, surfing for badger-porn, I am regaled by the sound of my 6-year-old daughter singing Away In A Manger to herself, tucked up in bed. If she starts on Little Donkey I may have to go in with an Uzi. BMB xx

    Lost in Space and Time

    I got lost on the way to a job on Sunday. (There's some kind of space/time vortex around Arley Hall...) Anyway, bearing in mind this is in the heartland of rural Cheshire, I managed to stop and ask the only Irishman in Cheshire for directions. Even though we were only a mile and a half from the...

    Badger Meets Black Widow

    It's true. I met a Black Widow spider this morning, lurking in my pack of grapes. I'd eaten most of the grapes and just looked down to see how many I had left, and there it was, waving its legs at me. I screamed and threw it across the room which probably stunned and deafened it. My colleague...

    I've just watched Big Brother... Nasty. Very nasty. Hands up who thinks the hunk of man they put in on Friday will be as gay as a very gay thing? Do the twins remind anyone else of Andrex puppies? BMB xx

    Thoughts and Happy Vibes

    LittleBabyBadger has to go into hospital tomorrow to have a grommet fitted into one of her ears. Should only be a small op, and only take about 20 minutes in theatre but if anyone has thoughts or healing to spare LittleBabyBadger's Mummy would be very grateful. (I'm more scared than she is...)...

    The Person Below Me

    The opposite of the person before me.... You make a statement, the person below answers true or false, and makes their own statement. Etc. With, as they say, hilarious results. The person below me bites the feet off jelly-babies first.
