Wieliczka Salt Mine

Wieliczka Salt Mine

On my recent trip to Poland, I went to visit the Wieliczka Salt Mine, near Krakow.  I was aware of the mine as a key tourist attraction, although had never been on any of my previous trips to the city, and as we were driving more or less by the entrance, it seemed a good opportunity to…

Candle Jokes

I was looking around the room for a topic for this week’s one liners, and spotted a candle, so here are some candle jokes. Don’t expect too much originality or hilarity…     Candle wax. It gets on my wick. When Joseph Swan thought of the light bulb, did a candle appear above his head..?…

Room On The Broom Scarecrow

The 2015 Heather Scarecrow Festival

Today sees the end of the 2015 Heather Scarecrow Festival, so I went along yesterday to look at this year’s collection of displays. For those not familiar with the event, the villagers of Heather in North West Leicestershire fill their gardens with homemade scarecrows, whilst visitors can go on a hunt for them around the…

360 Motor Racing Club at Donington Park

360 Motor Racing Club at Donington Park

Today saw the 360 Motor Racing Club at Donington Park, so I went along to see some of the action.  The main action was two three hour endurance sessions, the sort of races that are quite rare.  Today saw the Endurance Racing Series three hour race, followed by the 360 Allcomers Series, the other three hour…

Apples at the London 2012 Olympics

Apple Jokes

This week’s collection of one liners takes the form of apple jokes. We have had various fruits and vegetables as the topic before, so this time it’s the turn of the ever popular apple.  Some may be rather similar to other fruit based jokes. They come as normal with no guarantee of humour or originality……

Wawel, Krakow Castle

Krakow Castle

On my recent trip to Poland, I went back to visit Wawel, or Krakow Castle again. I have been there a few times, but even in a city with so much impressive architecture and grand buildings, the castle that dominates one end of the old town is a must see. There have been buildings on…

The Oval  hosting The Fifth Ashes match of 2013

Cricket Jokes

Both of the ashes series – for male and female cricketers – are under way, so the topic of this week’s one liners is cricket jokes. As normal, they may not be the funniest or most original… Which birds are rubbish at cricket? Ducks. Friend of mine is a retired cricket umpire. He doesn’t lift…

Lublin Airport

I was in Poland recently, which involved flying to and from Lublin airport in the east of the country.  Although there has been an airfield in Swidnik – the town near Lublin that is home to the airport – since 1939, and an aviation factory building helicopters since 1956, there has only been a commercial…

Ice Cream Jokes

I posted earlier in the week about Xander’s F1 Ice Cream, so Ice Cream Jokes seemed a good topic for this week’s puns and one liners. As normal, they come with no added topping of originality or funniness…   Where do you learn to make complicated ice cream dishes? Sundae School. Asked the man in…

Ginetta Racing at Donington Park

Addiction Jokes

It has been pointed out that, given the number of motor racing events that I have been to recently, perhaps I am addicted to the sport. So, it seemed that addiction jokes were as good a topic as any. As normal, they come with no guarantee of wit or originality, and they may not leave…

Lewis Hamilton in the 2015 British Grand Prix

2015 British Grand Prix

Last weekend at Silverstone saw the 2015 British Grand Prix, and as normal, I went along to see Formula One’s annual visit to the UK, as the Northamptonshire circuit became the centre of the F1 circus for a few days.  The Grand Prix weekend is getting longer and longer, with Thursday having a pit lane…
