That's very good for Oxfam. I always find the Oxfam stores in Cardiff way overpriced for books. :)

One of my recent Bargain was Nation for $16 USD, now you might that that that was not much of a bargain, but I saved A LOT on S&H by my own personal shopper Who's Wee Dug who brought me the book at NADWCon. Which I thought was very nice of him since it is a heavy book and was in a pick safe package. Gave him a few extra $$'s as a thank you! He is a very nice Feegle! I was suprised I still had me wallet after that transaction! :lol:
A legal Feegle? How could there be such a thing?
Today I feel like I am soaring like a tortoise!

This has absolutly nothing to do with discworld, but my wife keeps buying dog treats (like the awful "Bacin Bits") for our dog.

I've pointed out that actual bacon costs about half as much per pound, but she seems to think that if it's made for dogs, then they'll like it better than the real thing. :roll:

:lol: It's not like it's hard to get dogs to eat anything. :lol:

Just don't give them chocolate meant for humans as that's really bad for them.

Our previous dog (Tara) once ate a whole (big) piece of cheese :shock: . Some people said that cheese isn't good for dogs but she had no problems with it (she ate everything without any problems never seen her throw up anything). Isa is a bit more sensitive to what she has eaten, but she still tries to eat almost everything, she likes fruits especially raspberries :D .

There's a whole list of things; chocolate, onions, grapes/rasins, peanuts (any nut really), garlic (I think), orange skins, and the Irish.

It's actually a bit surprising, considering what they do eat!

It's difficult to stop them eating the Irish - but doing so is no good at all for them. :lol:
