    This weekend I attended a fun meet in Thetford. However whilst there I was appalled by the anti-sociable behaviour of a minority of funsters who insisted upon frying bacon in the morning. Do they not realise the adverse effect the smell of this has upon those of us of a delicate disposition who, for all sorts of reasons, are confined to cereals for breakfast. I have noticed this before at other meets but this practice seems to becoming more widespread of late.

    I myself was so inconvenienced that I had to switch my large generator on so that the diesel fumes could act as a masking agent against the smell.

    Surely we cannot let this go on any longer? Can I suggest that in the future a check point is set up at the entrance to all meets and rallies to enable all fridges to be searched and the offending articles removed and confiscated. I can, if our great and wise leader wishes, organise a disposal service for the confiscated articles at a very reasonable price. Only by this method will we be rid of this scourge.

    I should like to formally complain about the smell from your generator, for there were several moments when the fumes totally blanked out the rich odours of bacon fat wafting across the morning air.

    If disgusted of Tunbridge Wells cannot partake of the real deal, could he not eat turkey Rashers? Or pretend bacon?

    You would have hated it parked near us yesterday morning...
    Not only was there sizzling bacon, but also bread baking in the oven and to top it all the rich aroma of 'real' espresso coffee wafting around
    Anyway, being confined to cereal is great, especially if you like eating shredded cardboard
    It's All Bran for us this morning, but at least it keeps you regular

    Have always wondered why people who are vegetarian,then spend their time manufacturing or buying fake sausages, pies etc. let it go people.

    I had it made especially. I have a man that does that sort of thing for me you understand.

    I believe he told me that he used an old diesel engine from a large site dumper. Had to remove the silencer because it was taking power out of the engine and I didn't need it anyway because I am deaf. It's on wheels and I tow it around with what my man calls a toad. Find it runs best on second hand vegetable oil he gets from Indian restaurants. I understand the spices add more power.

    I call it my lucky mascot because whenever I take it with me I find that I always end up with plenty of room at the Aires and rallies I visit.

    With a bit of Crowd Sourcing we could set up a business and sell them around the motorhome shows...

    How about calling it a "Peace Maker"?
