" widower lost her husband two years ago".

It's doing a lot more than raising eyebrows if widowers are a 'her' there.

Incidentally I just moved to a nearby location myself. Must start leaving the windows open more.

In England at least - Viagra is now to be an over the counter sale. Subject to the pharmacist asking a few questions about any other medication you are taking.

Part of the reasoning was that illegal imports are likely to be dangerous to more people than are the side-effects of the genuine article.

Aren't The Proclaimers Scottish

Unfortunately I'm not feeling witty or awake enough to find and pervert any Irish Artists work. I'm sure you could get Westlife and prick together in a sentence.

"Although why 4 hours was never clearly explained."

Easy peasy: If you practice sex for four hours or more, non stop, you run a serious risk of setting yourself on fire. It's science.

Since when is Ringaskiddy an embarrassing name? There is a town in East Donegal whose residents don't always like to tell outsiders where they're from, but I've never heard of anyone finding Ringaskiddy embarrassing.

Sadie was surely dead chuffed like when the Beatles sang about her namesake back in 1968.

Sexy Sadie, what have you done?

Bah!

It would explain the popularity of Presley's "Blue Christmas" on the pub jukeboxes though, given the vision artifacts the drug produces.

Or so I'm told. By others.
