(way back in the autumn of 2008)

That's right, not Microsoft Office, nor even My Office. The mice have taken over, using clothes and paperwork for bedding and feeding on hazelnuts, poppy heads, apples and potatoes. I should have paid more attention to Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy.

The mice managed to get almost 30 potatoes into the sound hole of a sub-woofer speaker. How they did it I don't know as they had to get then out of a box, push them over the floor and up some few inches to the hole. I still can't work out how they did it but here's the picture.

and here's what I extracted from the speaker ??? and no, they are not small potatoes. That's a full size coal sack they are upon, the largest potatoes was some four inches.
