Re: BOB'S BITS

This is the way we were: in our growing up and in our marrying and in our living and in our dying. The Theatre Manager, in Wilder's Our Town. My ‘pediatrician’ was the first woman doctor in her rural Iowa county. She later became a good friend, and when she turned 90 I asked her if there was anythin...

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

The kids had them and I used to play with both of them. Johnny Pickles was triggered into Ornamental Turning by playing with his daughter Joyce's Spirograph. He liked it so much he got his own!

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

Thanks Cathy. It's nasty underfoot, slushy and on the verge of freezing. Slight thaw on at the moment but that will reverse in mid afternoon when it starts to get colder leading to possibly -4C tonight.

Thanks Cathy. I am quite cheerful about it. My mate Martha has had the same treatment and tells me that apart from making her a bit tired as her immune system worked overtime, it was quite benign. I am hoping for the same!

It hasn't changed. The glass bombed from late afternoon onwards and this morning is down on 995mb and st...

If you have a chance of promotion, think very carefully before going for it. Some 'advances' are actually a poisoned chalice! (Ask T May about this)

He said he had seen these flat bellies driving the ball further than him and had got the message! Gave up on Les Mis last night half way through. Too much '...

Usual activities but all brought forward an hour because I will be leaving Jack on his own for about 4 hours this afternoon while I am at Airedale, I want to have him walked and fed by 14:30 rather than the usual 15:30. That way he'll settle for a sleep as usual. I should be back at about 18:00 so h...

Re: BEWARE! THE BANKS ARE OUT TO GET YOU!

I'd forgotten that Tiz. I always pay my Contents Insurance by debit card because the broker charged extra if you used credit. I noted that when I renewed it this month there was no mention of a surcharge but I thought that was perhaps because it was online.

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

I love the stone furniture. The inhabitants were importing wine or olive oil from the Mediterranean, I think amphora were found there.
Getting back to Flatley Dryer territory, how many of you remember the Etch a Sketch and the Spirograph? Both still currently manufactured and available.
