Anyone else remember the saying years ago, that Volvo owners were the worst drivers, because their cars were considered the safest?

Plusminus

Re: Visitors

The squirrel also has a sense of humour, going by how well they tease the collies with a "chase me" then sit up a branch pelting them with husks and other detritus. They are quite accurate and can hit a collie-conk at 15 yards. Cugel I've seen them teasing dogs but it appears they don't k...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Regardless as to whether you agree with their views, the "I just don't like the EU, I don't need to have a reason" and "the Germans want total domination of other nations" opinions expressed here should give pause to anyone believing a 2nd referendum is a panacea to scrub the sl...

Re: Do we really want an Emotional, Gay, Muslim Armed Forces ?

Many join because it is an option to train, get a trade and better oneself, with opportunities unavailable elsewhere Perhaps why there tends to be an over representation ion people from deprived areas Except in the...

One could invent a new name for porridge, "Soilent" maybe, to market it to people who "do not like porridge"

What about *Black Friday*? By using the term I disclose what I think of b****t, are other names for 3/29/2019 available?
