Strip naked and run about it in a wild fashion.
First part would be no problem although it would be a tad cold at the moment. I couldn't do the second bit at the moment unless something was chasing me. :biggrin2:

Glad you had a better night Maz.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Well - if someone with Ian's skills and experience chooses to bin it rather than repair it, I don't see much future for the recent campaign for the opposite to happen. :smile: Manufacturers stopped making repairable kettles nearly 40 years ago, that goes for toasters and most other small domestic a...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Had to buy a new kettle today. Our existing one (Prestige) brewed up once for Sally this morning before she went swimming then gave up the ghost for me! No visible reset on it and I discovered a bit later that it was leaking from the water level window, bin fodder. We have had it about 4 years I thi...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Sounds good Maz, hang on to the small gains. Emma rang me yesterday and we had a chat. We agreed that I would not benefit from any further visits from her as I have all the exercises that she can give me. I am progressing all the time, albeit slowly but that is to be expected. We have agreed that sh...

I made it there and back to the dentists this morning, odd bits of freeing slush still on the pavements but no dramas even with a 90% efficient right leg. :extrawink: :biggrin2:

If I was offered the choice, I'd rather run the 268 miles of the Spine Race than row the Atlantic in a small boat.

Officially the gallery doesn't work with this version of the board software, but nobody told the gallery and it still seems to work......
Officially the gallery doesn't work since we upgraded to 3.2 five years ago actually. I remember the potential issues when we were doing the LTP back in 2013.

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

I had a cortisone injection in my shoulder when I tore the muscles a couple of years ago, it gave temporary relief and more movement. It was physio that sorted it finally. Anyway, I wish you well Maz.

Also you Stanley, start of your treatment, all the best.

Aye, according to the news there is no plan B and she will just dish up her deal again. She has abandoned the cross party negotiations but says they are still open. Interested to see what parliament says.

Re: POLITICS CORNER

TM is so pig headed that she will not admit that she has failed. Total cock up from the outset. It should have been a coalition government from the get go. They could have had a cross party working team for the negotiations, brought it to parliament after a year, modified it if required half a dozen...

Not to worry Stanley it comes to them all eventually. In another theatre, Rodger Federer was knocked out of the Australian Open by a much lower seed. Even sportsmen and women get older and fall to the young bucks, t'was ever so, don't vex too much, it's only a game. :smile:

I know they stored the signalling detonators in there. Plenty found when it was abandoned, we used to shoot at them with a .22 air rifle, good target fun. :extrawink: :biggrin2:

Didn't take long to announce that the speed limit on the road would be reduced and the council has magically found money to introduce speed bumps as well. Can't see how they can do that on a road that will now have a 50 limit rather than the national norm of 60 for an A road. I wonder if we could ge...

I have some Damart thermal combies which I used to use when fishing in winter. Excellent at keeping you warm when it was biting cold, but if the sun came out you felt like you could explode. :smile:
