101 uses for an empty plastic bottle

see post below.....


OR , as one canal boat owner did here...a white plastic bottle..they had two identical bottles which looked like they had been kept especially for the job.

101 uses for a carrier bag



Had a very pleasant walk along the Trent and Mersey Canal...spotted a number of ways the boat owners highlighted the trip hazards of their mooring stakes...they seemed to use mostly Sainsburys orange carrier bags..

101 uses for a tyre

Michael spotted this on the tele and tried to capture it on camera for me...a tyre being used to "drop" barrels of beer on in a pub...

101 uses for a train ticket

Funny how something can be under you nose for so long before you notice it. My "train project" at the moment is a patchwork, and I just realised how I have been using train tickets to secure pins and needles, not the most exciting other use...but a very practical one to keep from dropping pins on public transport.

101 uses for a traffic cone

As seen on Whitegate boot sale, the man said it stopped the top heavy clothes rack from blowing over, he usually used a bag of soil, but had forgotten the soil, then he remembered he had this cone in the car and it was heavier than the soil and was thus working much better...the lady next to him had used a bag of clothes to do the same...but that wasn't working so well.
