    Your views on how the Tories have handled Coronavirus.

    A friend sent me a text from Glasgow to say that the lack of senior politicians at the daily briefings had got her worried! It hadn't dawned on me before but the lass is right. I suppose that the deeper they sink into the mire the less they will want to step forward to explain things to Joe...

    So, what’s the point of lager?

    With a potential ABV above 7% you have all the time in the world. Personally, I would put most of it way back on the shelf out of sight, so that I could drink it on those warm days of an "Indian Summer" sometime around September! athumb..

    Your views on how the Tories have handled Coronavirus.

    TOTALLY OFF SUBJECT BUT ... all this talk of "opportunity" has reminded me of a tale I heard many years ago about a Church Warden. The Church Warden worked for many years with the same Vicar at St Mary's and kept the church and its fabric in tip-top condition. Finally, the Vicar retired and a...

    President Trump promises to sort Covid-19 by 12th April

    Support for Trump very much reminds me of a poster I saw in Saudi Arabia many, many years ago! "Eat sh1t. Ten million flies can't be wrong!" A coupe of days ago, I watched a video of a reporter interviewing Trump supporters at a "Trump Rally" before the last election. It demonstrated just...

    President Trump promises to sort Covid-19 by 12th April

    It's worth contacting the people you have a deal with! I've just cancelled an apartment in France, return Flights with KLM (Edinburgh > Nantes > Edinburgh), one-way trip on the Channel Tunnel, two hotels in France and an evening at the Sleaford Theatre. These were all "non-refundable" but in...

    I suspect that the second time was to apologise!

    It only became "silly" when you removed the second half of the Post. The one that went ... "... and yet Charlie boy and his squeeze can get tested immediately! I presume that the same rules are being applied to the usual gang of Royalty, their hangers-on and other members of the glitterati."...

    Things to do whilst self - isolating

    Sat fishing for chub on the banks of the River Bain in Horncastle many years ago when a gentleman came and sat on the bank at the back of me. The Bain is only a small river and his white shirt and prominent position sent the fish scattering up and down the river, so after about an hour with not...

    Your views on how the Tories have handled Coronavirus.

    Er ... one problem with all this information. Me, a mere pensioner of limited intelligence and very few qualifications (none of them medical) knew that there was an outbreak of what would become known as Covid-19 many weeks before the 20th March indicated above. By the 20th March my Spring...

    President Trump promises to sort Covid-19 by 12th April

    I love the place but July? I think you may have to decide between "Am I suicidal?" or "Am I an optimist?" I've been to some rough places in the world and whenever they threw the doors of the plane open I used to think "Why are you back here again?" and in the later years the answer came...

    The Coronavirus thread.

    Apparently, the Government are now testing 10,000 people a day; so with a population of 60 million we will have tested everyone in about 16 years ... ... and yet Charlie boy and his squeeze can get tested immediately! :coat: I presume that the same rules are being applied to the usual gang of...

    Things to do whilst self - isolating

    Assuming that it's one of the shows and if anyone hasn't seen it, I can thoroughly recommend "Evita"!

    Joke of the day.

    A man lived opposite a Pawnbroker's shop and every day he saw the owner come out of his shop, make the sign of the cross, walk down the street and go into the local Synagogue. The man was so intrigued that one day he went outside, met the man as he crossed the street and asked him why he made...

    The Coronavirus thread.

    BBC News just now: "PM says govt needs to massively increase testing." and "PM: Testing is the key to unlock the puzzle of coronavirus." Has anyone explained to Boris who is responsible for seeing that both of these statements are fulfilled? aheadbutt If you don't laugh you have to cry...

    Bread Porn

    Just found a kilo of this in the back of the cupboard ... https://www.tesco.com/groceries/en-GB/products/254917990 I bought it when I was grinding my own malted grain to a flour about a year ago, but never got round to using it. It's only marginally out of date and no weevils so I'm thinking...

    What are you drinking tonight 2020.

    Thanks for that - but I am glad to report that there must have been a massive improvement since your Dad had his op. athumb.. Why? Well, today I went for my first walk and after walking about a kilometre, I came home and went a**e over tea-kettle as I tripped up over the step into the...

    :laugh8: :laugh8: :laugh8: Er ..."... not the left wing type ..." eh? So not the type that brought in the NHS and nationalised industries back in the 1940's and 50's then. I think we have a closet Liberal in our midst! :hat: That's the Party that formed an alliance with the Tories and...

    Your views on how the Tories have handled Coronavirus.

    Sorry folks but I thought it was time to resurrect this Thread! I have a couple of quotes for you that come from the Coronavirus Thread. They even have a name for it! It's called "The Peter Principle" where a person is so good in their job that they keep getting promoted. This promotion...

    The Coronavirus thread.

    Today, Trump managed to: Criticise Boris for considering the above! Explain what a bad idea it would have been and the zillions that would have died as a result. Not mention the words "herd immunity" because apparently they are so abhorrent to him! :laugh8: Yes folks! The man that has no...

    Guess what it is

    They look like part of a set of weights for balance scales. The slot in each weight slides over a perpendicular bar. Four weights at 5 - 3 - 2 & 1 Units will allow weighing of 11 - 10 - 9 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 & 1 Units.
