No Moles in Ireland
Talking of DIY sheds (see Monday’s post), there was also talk more recently about one them stocking a burglars’ tool. Thankfully, again, no-one I know actually seems to have seen one, so hopefully it’s just an unfounded rumour. If it turns out to be true I’ll give more details in another post. (Of course, many things that are sold in DIY outlets can be put to nefarious uses, but the item in question here only has one use – breaking and entering.) One of my favourite DIY store stories is of how B&Q stores in Northern Ireland were stocking two kinds of mole repellant when in fact moles are not found in Ireland. More here.
