    Some cheeky upstart told me yesterday I reminded him of his dad. Blooming young hipster kid. Tattoos, big red beard, ear-rings. Couldn't have been much more than 35; 40 tops. Pesky kids . . .

    I was a bit of an oddball until I was abducted by aliens; but I'm perfectly OK now!

    "Spooky" spiders webs, skellingtons (sic), pumpkins and bats. Our local High street has adorned windows from an estate agents, curry house and a chemist with this rubbish. Grow up.

    Better off skellingtons than deep fill mice pies. We haven't even put the clocks back or celebrated Diwali yet . . .

    Sadly we Brits seem only too keen to allow our culture to be overwhelmed by all the worst aspects of that from across the Atlantic.

    Well Simon, us old grumps have the authoritative answers on those three topics;-

    Clogs with iron carkers
    Helly Hansen oilskins, as per the 1880 originals
    Brass hurricane lamps - carried aloft in the R hand .... none of this noncey strapping it to your head business.

    Somewhat disappointed with you being tempted to peek at that Bookface malarkey ... really undermines your street cred.

    If they come round here I've told the wife to give them easter eggs and Christmas crackers.
