The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea

By Edward Lear

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
   In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
   Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
   And sang to a small guitar,
“O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
    What a beautiful Pussy you are,
         You are,
         You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!”
Pussy said to the Owl, “You elegant fowl!
   How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
   But what shall we do for a ring?”
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
   To the land where the Bong-Tree grows
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
   With a ring at the end of his nose,
             His nose,
             His nose,
   With a ring at the end of his nose.
“Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
   Your ring?” Said the Piggy, “I will.”
So they took it away, and were married next day
   By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
   Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
   They danced by the light of the moon,
             The moon,
             The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.

Blue eye wall clock design

I have just sold over 30 copies of this Blue Eye Wall Clock in less than 24 hours. I just want to thank who ever is promoting it. You are doing a great job. Nearly all have been sold in Florida, so I assume it is someone there.

Just goes to show it is all about promotion, rather than design. Just hitting the right audience at the right time with a fad idea.

Pigs Rule design

My latest design is Pigs Rule:

Defintions of love

Valentines day make me think of love and what it actually is. The webster dictionary defines love as:

love  (lŭv)


1. A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness.
2. A feeling of intense desire and attraction toward a person with whom one is disposed to make a pair; the emotion of sex and romance.


a. Sexual passion.
b. Sexual intercourse.
c. A love affair.
4. An intense emotional attachment, as for a pet or treasured object.
5. A person who is the object of deep or intense affection or attraction; beloved. Often used as a term of endearment.
6. An expression of one’s affection: Send him my love.


a. A strong predilection or enthusiasm: a love of language.
b. The object of such an enthusiasm: The outdoors is her greatest love.
8. Love Mythology Eros or Cupid.
9. often Love Christianity Charity.
10. Sports A zero score in tennis.
For me the definition is best summed up by my parents.
63 years ago on Feb 14 my Mum and Dad married. From that came 6 children, many grandchildren (sorry too many to count) and 4 and half great-grandchildren. WOW! Amazing legacy. Congratulations Mum and Dad – we all love you and thank you for every minute of our lives.
