  1. And as an aside, I believe that Womans Hour commissioned dramatisations of some of Terry Pratchetts early works to fit into the Womans Hour drama slot (I think Equal Rites was one of them) because some lummock of a producer thought "Terry Pratchett" was a woman...
  2. Every weekday between 10 and 11am and Saturdays at 4pm, plus much of the drama which has a feminist slant. I wonder what would happen if men requested a "Mens Hour"?
  3. The problem with supermarkets (or shops in general) is that you may have a good idea about what you want and where it is and want to keep your distance, but the shopper in front is dithering at a shelf over items and is standing over what you want, or you just want to move ahead to where you want to go. What do you do? The aisle width is inadequate for a 2m gap so you either hold your breath and pass them, or wait until they've decided they don't want the stuff anyway and potter on, to repeat the process a few feet later.
  4. This is probably Dads one opportunity in the week (month? year?) not to have to worry. Are we saying that the poor bloke should subordinate his wishes to the rest of the family the whole year round? And if the kids don't take at least a polite interest, then its probably their loss. I will not rant, I will NOT rant.......
  5. In terms of the long tail, it might be a good idea, all those bargains, long gone and never to be repeated. Time to start again!
  6. Hope you all realise that there's only a few more weeks and then the nights start drawing in again.


    Downhill all the way!!!

      Is that actually true? I have always thought (but never bothered to look) that the evenings still get longer but the mornings get shorter slightly quicker, hence the day is shorter but not neccessarily the evening

      Can't really remember either, but the net result is that eventually the nights will start closing in on us again....  :resent:

  7. Nice bit of fencing, very smart! Ok watching this space.....
  8. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson decide to go on a camping trip. After dinner and a bottle of wine, they lay down for the night, and go to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend. "Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see." Watson replied, "I see millions of stars." "What does that tell you?" Watson pondered for a minute. "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets." "Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo." "Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three." "Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant." "Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow." "What does it tell you, Holmes?" Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke: "Watson, you idiot. Someone has stolen our tent!"
  9. That hardy perennial The Six-Five Special!
  10. And oil leaks and fires under the casing. They were just as bad as some of the Pilot Scheme diesels! Very pretty though.
  11. Well made, practically indestructable provided the woodworm keep away, but visually.... I like the fruit bowl, and we've got an identical vase!
  12. Whatever you do, DON'T LOOK DOWN!
  13. Well, we knew what he meant! Anyhow, that's either more ignorance OR its to catch the others who can't spell either....
  14. It was a sunny Sunday in Lockdown Land, and the clocks were striking Thirteen.... Black suits many locos, but some DEMAND Green, with lashings of copper and brass!
  15. Add More Pins!!! Sorry I've just been looking at Mr Eds musings on the New Ahnk terminus....
