The single life is not for me

I've been living in my flat for just over seven years now, and something is missing. I need someone to share my life with. I long for someone to cuddle up with on the sofa, someone to snuggle with under the duvet. Someone to make me smile first thing in the morning. There's not as many gay bars as there used to be, so where on earth do you meet someone? There's an app for that, Grindr, an app to meet guys, only problem is it's full of idiots and time wasters, no one wants to meet anyone on there it seems. Any suggestions? I'm single and don't look bad for 48yrs old. Please someone, rescue this lonely single male with own home and car, willing to travel, good in the kitchen, non smoker... 100% house trained

Remember the 5th of November plus 5 days either side

Fireworks, noisy wizz bangy things, they really do scare the be-jesus out of people and animals. Two of the dogs I sit for, Nero and Harley are both scared of them, petrified of them even. Harley though, it seems, is no daft dog. She has discovered a safe her owners apartment. It's the room with no windows, it is the bathroom, a windowless cocoon for a dog that is scared of the fireworks. She jumped into the bath to escape the noisy bloomin' things. Her master, Carl, wanted to make it comfortable for her , put her dog bed and a few blankets in there for her. I saw a photo of her in her comfy space, she looked very content. When will the government ban the private sale of fireworks? They should be for sale only to councils, community organisations and religious establishments.
