'Promises made, promises kept'

The PotUS plans to seek a second term but I think he has little chance, he is alone against 20+ democrats
How unfair is that? %)

I think you mean "Brassed Off" with Pete Postlethwaite? About a Barnsley Colliery Brass band.Loosely based on the quite famous Grimethorpe Colliery Band.Not a bad film.(I accept it may have had a different title in Europe?)
I must be the only person in Sheffield who has not seen the Full Monty!On Holiday at Lake Garda in 2003 and the lady owner of the on-site shop asked me where in the UK I was from and when I said Sheffield she told me she'd been here for a few days to do the Full Monty Tour.....very strange as it was filmed in some less than desirable parts of the City :|


I was at the premiere. Only film I've seen where a lot of the audience stood and clapped and cheered at the end like a theatre crowd.

Uwe-Karsten Heye was spokesman for the Schroeder regime in Germany from 1998

'I thought the job would be like a high-wire act without a safety net, but it was more like a high-wire act without the high-wire', he bleated

Perhaps he could help BoJo with publicity about his domestic disorder :?

It is nice when people come to visit
It is nice too when they stay a while to eat and talk
And it is especially nice when they go away again

Seen on another forum:
Astrogeek wrote:Mutual, reciprocal respect among equals, "as yourself", the whole and only basis of equity, peace and goodwill among men.

That such different characters as Dr. Stallman, an outspoken atheist, Thomas Jefferson, an agnostic politician, and Jesus Christ, who should need no introduction, all recognized the same principle as the single foundation of everything good in human relations only emphasizes the timeless, self evident nature of this simple principle, this truth.

Went to a talk by an undertaker

She related how she pointed at a shooting star: 'look, there is your grandad!', she whispered

'How stupid do you think I am?', bleated Cyril (8)

The undertaker gave up 'lying' to children after that
