That's Jack and Jill by J & G Morten. I got the first salt and pepper set in Richmond in the 80's when they had a shop there. They're not making any more, but still available on ebay. Now I keep buying more. - Antiques of the future. :smile:

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Speaking of windows. Here's a short video of my front window shelf. I've been here nearly ten years, and I don't think I've ever cleaned the windows. I find that the last video I posted was on this thread in 2013. Who will ever forget 'tripps goes to tesco' . Everyone hopefully. David Whipp said he ...

Re: BOB'S BITS

I thought I had Bei mir bist du schon by the Andrews Sisters on my phone, but can't find it. I've got it somewhere. I found Rum and Coca Cola by them though. I find that I hear every word and largely understand them. Can't be said for more modern songs. :smile:

Re: GOOD TV

I bumped into a programme called 'Famalam' last night. I found it hard going and largely incomprehensible, and I didn't last long with it. It's said to be a sketch show

Here's the trailer Famalam Enjoy.

Re: POLITICS CORNER

Thanks or the reminder Kev. In fact I was thinking of the uptick which used to keep a record of what you upticked (I think), and gave someone an overview of how popular their posts were.

(On second thoughts - maybe better I don't know ? ) :smile: )


Anyway :good: :good:

Just bumped into a minor channel programme on Brendan Bracken.

Re: POLITICS CORNER

I'll leave that explanation to someone cleverer than me Sue. I've reached the stage where I don't believe anything that any politician says. Boris has only one aim - to be Prime Minister. He thinks he is a re-incarnation of Churchill, and is destined for the job. He will do / say anything which move...

Well, I guess Rod Stewart might be a better PM than the lot of them, including Rory Stewart! His full name is Roderick James Nugent Stewart. Anyone who looked less like a 'Rory' I can't imagine. I call him Rod. :smile: The betting puts Boris at 1 to 5 now. I think that's generous, and the true odds...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

Looks like Boris is home and dry, following the first members' vote. If he gets to the final two, the membership will vote for him. The hurdle was getting there. Looks like self preservation at the forthcoming election, has trumped all other concerns for the MP's. Rod Stewart has just been interview...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

What's occurring? It's time for PMQ's. She's still PM, the House is full, yet they are doing questions on 'Women and Equalities' to Penny Mordaunt.

12.10 pm - Ah she's arrived. Better late than never - It's as if she never left.

I can't decide to be pleased or irritated. :smile:

Good luck with it Ian. The freedom to travel as and when you want to, is a joy of modern life. I've had it for a long time, but I think it is possible that I may be of the last generation to do so. :smile:
