promoting violence Mick? Surely it is likely to be the other way around, for leaving marks on her nice clean floor. :wink:

Congrats to all concerned, especially the grandparents. You won't have time for cycling now, too busy babysitting or knitting matinee coats! :wink:

We have parking signs for disabled and families in most supermarket car parks. I have yet to see a bike parking space. Am I missing them or are they as common as hen's teeth?

Caught up with the film at the weekend, wonderful line by Hermione to Ron, "You have the emotional range of a teaspoon!" I'm still chuckling at that.

I think you'll find that Good Morning Vietnam was based on a true life story and it is anti war, but then so is Apocalypse now and Platoon. All war films should be anti war, because war is such a pointless exercise with no real winners - look at Iraq if you need convincing. :cry:

Maybe I'm getting old, I got caught in a thunderstorm last week and was wet through to my skin. I didn't need water bottles in panniers, the water in the pad in my cycleshorts weighed about half a ton, not to mention my shoes which took days to dry. Anyway, fun was about the last word that came to m...

Wouldn't a hybrid be the outcome if there was progeny between the two? If so, would it be making an issue? Or was he using protection, such as a helmet? :wink:

I tend not to take my best bike out in rain, but I got caught in a thunderstorm the other night - absolutely soaked in seconds. Don't know about balmy summer nights, the weather is more barmey! I wonder if I could cycle using a snorkel?

I find the one on Tiscali is usually more accurate than the Beeb, but they all have their failings. If you want absolute certainty, look out the window it guarantees the outcome for at least ten seconds! :lol:

I remember Robert Morely talking on a chat show saying that since he'd gone to live in the country, he'd realised how generous townspeople were in offering him mattresses and fridges by leaving them in his hedges. I think we have to accept that there will always be some inhabitants of this island wh...

Most of the reports are suggested to be those of large domestic moggies seen out of context, thus looking larger. It could have been what I saw in a filed in North Dorset, but I've had cats all my life and I think I can distinguish between one and a strange looking one. I've also seen strange things...

There are also well documented post mortems of sheep that have been killed by big cats, typically they trip their prey, crush their ribs with a blow from a front paw which makes it unlikely the prey will get up and run away, then kill by biting on the windpipe actually throttling their prey. Dog kil...
