Re: All-female cabinet?

Hi all, How would it all work with "Gender Self Designation"? Why are some folk so obsessed with gender inequality?? I've always taken such inequality in pension provision as being tough but what the heck? Men had to wait 5 years longer for their state pension, then statistically die 5 yea...

Re: That's bananas!"

Hi all, Who was made the record - "Loving you has made me bananas"? Maybe Dr Peters has got it spot on, "Control your inner chimp"! :wink: Modern Art will always stretch credibility - Pile of bricks, Heap of bread, all of the Jack the Dripper output, but the real humour is the at...

Re: Work as a teacher: Why?

Morning all, Why would anyone want to take up teaching? Well, I'm glad that many people take up the challenge for the right reasons & are adaptable enough to view each pupil as someone to help reach their potential! SWMBO was at the Chalk Face for nearly 42 years, JMI specialist. When she took t...

Hi there, Some of us are so "Niche" that we are waiting for Abingdon & Chater-Lea to have their "Black Friday Sales"!!! MM

Re: Obituaries miscellaneous, Paul Flynn..

Hi CX-3, Just worked out your "ReNaming" point! Never heard that before, but then again I am not a "Certified Football Nut"!!! I don't think it smart to do a bragging point jib here, that sounds like a very Mancunian practise? I'm allowed to insult that lot along the M602, as my ...

Re: Obituaries miscellaneous, Paul Flynn..

Hi CX-3, Course I'm from Liverpool, no typo contained! Harry Quinn frame builder from Walton organized a coach trip down to Eastway to see the the race, so I took SWMBO. Knackering but worth it. I don't read the Weakly cycling press, so have to rely on the DT obits service, slow though it is. Keep a...

Re: A nation of hypochondriacs?

Hi all, I am going to copy Spike Milligan. Had his headstone inscribed with - "I told you I was ill!". (In Gaelic as they wouldn't allow it in English) I'll also have one of those wotsits that allows one do directly download a file of all of my medical travails, hypochondria not on the lis...

Re: Obituaries miscellaneous, Paul Flynn..

Hello, the Great Eternal Second has got the headlines to himself? Raymond Poulidor has gone to join the peleton of giants! His career coincided with Anquetil, Gimondi & Merckx, always just missing out on the elusive prize, the Yellow Jersey, never wore it for even a single day! But he was an hon...

Re: Bicycle side-car on TV.

Hi all, If you want the advantages of a solo motor-cycle and advantages of a car combined I suggest you try the Swiss "Ecomobile" (I think I've spelt it correctly?). It was a very high end toy, with a fully enclosed cigar shape to enclose rider & passenger, two wheels with drop down st...

Re: TV licensing...

Hello MickF, Do you think it might be possible to set up a DD for "Zero Pounds-Zero Pence for Life"? With the proviso that the amount cannot be varied without provable written permission. See if it screws up their system! MM

Re: Bicycle side-car on TV.

Hi Reohn2. I think we need clarification over your Cycle/Sidecar, M/Cycle/Sidecar experience? I have done more than a smidgin of steering both variants, so can say with certainty that it's only the "Nut Holding The Handlebars" that causes issues. Sounds as though you are merely theorizing ...
