Re: LIGHTS IN THE SKY 2013

Is he there yet..
. somebody, anybody?
I hear that he is a bit concerned about people in dear old Barlick worrying about certain emitters and walking around wearing tinfoil hats.
I wonder who's been having a word in his ear?

We would say 'He plonked himself down on the sofa'.
Plonked is also used when someone has drank too much alcohol.

Re: LIGHTS IN THE SKY 2013

I can totally understand making it a magical time for children, but I think when they are older and have 'cottoned on' then the real origins should be told.

Re: LIGHTS IN THE SKY 2013

Not having any grandchildren, as yet, I sometimes wonder how the parents of today explain Father Christmas to their young children. What with LED lights, batteries for his sleigh, and lots of homes not having chimneys these days, it makes me think that the real meaning and story is lost. I wonder if...

Re: DIALECT AND WORD MEANINGS

Just heard the phrase 'plump for', I don't think it's used much over here.
Meaning to support, choose, drop, throw heavily.
Chiefly British. 1300-50 Middle English - plumpen (v.) cognate with Dutch plompen; probably imitative.
I plump for the red dress.
He plumped down heavily on the sofa.

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

Well... Ahem... Actually I think I deserve 1/2 a point. John Lennon was in a 'not very good ' movie called How I Won The War (an anti-war black comedy) and as part of his actors kit , he was given a pair of National Health Service type, round, wire-framed glasses to wear. He rather liked the shape, ...

Our Coca Cola ad is a little bit sneaky, the big red truck doesn't have a name on it! You just see someone drinking from a Coca Cola bottle at the end. All a bit suss really.

Meet KNICKERS from Perth. He is a 194cm tall, 14tonne, 7yr old Holstein Fresian. He towers 1/2 a metre over the rest of the herd. Originally bought as a 'coach', an animal that could take charge of the herd and show them the ropes of life on the farm. Goodness, have you ever seen a cow so big? And a...
