Re: Baseball cap helmet

Hi all, Getting access to my loft area I always kept banging my bonce on the overhead woodwork, ouch! So a mate gave me the ideal headware, a genuine Jaguar/Land Rover Bump Cap, in nice British racing Green. I leave it in a handy position so available for immediate use. Far better than Neurophen! TT...

Re: Role model: who is yours?

Hi Brynpoeth, I'd only use Bercow as a role model if I was after the job of "Village Idiot"! Pass him the Motley :oops: . MM

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

Morning all, So we mustn't play the "We Won", "You Lost" game, sounds like some folk will have to become less combative? So a simple question for you - To the group that came 2nd in the Referendum "When will you accept that the wishes of the folk who got more crosses on the ...

Hi Pliptrot, Oop's :oops: :oops: :oops: . Mia Culpa! In this case the 70 year-old has lapsed into error.
Mind you I would have supported the Official Monster Raving Looney Party manifesto pledge of "Votes for Dogs"! TTFN MM

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

Afternoon all, Nice to see that Mr Deputy Speaker, Sir Lindsay Hoyle, declined to accept the lawfulness of the amendment proposed, to allow 16 & 7 year-olds to have a vote in the upcoming GE, under requested advice! To have moved such a change would have required changes to the Representation Of...

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

Sorry Debs, But not all male moans are anti-WASPI! Pnsions from the state were always skewed, with a life expectancy of between 2 & 3 years after getting one. Of course that was for the worker, who back then was predominantly male, not my fault! But the facts are that women actuarially live five...

Re: How good is the world's most expensive whisky?

Hello again, I seem to have wandered into he watering hole set aside for Philistines? Knocking back the dram, belting it down in gulps??? Drinking spirits like that one might as well drink Meths! :twisted: . To merely pour intoxicating liquids down the gullet is louche, with craftsmen, vintners, bre...

Re: How good is the world's most expensive whisky?

Hi MickF, If you are burning Sherry Casks you have more money than sense! Remember the Onedin Line on tv? James would bring Port in barrels from Oporto for free, gratis, but he took them back for proper dosh, the cask can often be worth more than the contents (Nett Duties), Money not to burn Mick! I...

Re: How good is the world's most expensive whisky?

Hi Mike, Thought so, not distilled on Shetland, merely blended on Shetland, cheats! One small volume to buy & read is "101 Whiskys to Try Before You Die", not all mega dosh types, an Aldi Bottle gets in? As more sober tour might be a journey to extant distilleries, lots to visit. TTFN MM

Re: How good is the world's most expensive whisky?

Hey Paulactic, Don't get in a "Paddy" over whisky/whiskey, just go and drown your sorrows! The study of those spirits is quite interesting, lots of twists & turns, lost treasures, reawakened distilleries, great history. Oddly enough the Ubiquitous "Haynes Manual" people, who ...

Hi Guys, So are we ready yet for the Italian Job moment yet? The Brexit Bus is teetering over the cliff edge, and Maurice Mickelwhite is delivering the line - "I've got an idea"! More than the MP's have :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: escooters get contolled in France

Hi all, I think I can see a way of supplementing my meagre pension? A form of "Carbon Offsetting" ! The bone idle so & so's who can't be bothered to walk even quite reasonable distances can pay me to do the walk for them, they just have to cough up the dosh? If it works for Elton John ...

Re: escooters get contolled in France

Hi Reohn2, I mentioned the insult point because of the jab at Brynpoeth, which the poster apologised for as he miss out an emoticon, which Bryn I believe accepts. My point about folk not accepting the advantages of actually walking fits in with the laze culture of these times! After all we must all ...
