  1. andsome has told me that he is happy elsewhere and unlikely to be back. With Bela indicating that he may do the same - it will leave just me starting new threads and only catgate to respond. Sadly - I too will bid the forum a sad goodbye after being here for 15 years - it was great while it lasted - but all good things eventually come to an end.
  2. I have just done as you asked and stared at this space for 10 minutes and nothing happened. You are a cad and a trickster sir.
  3. Do you get so happy posting these pictures that you find yourself humming the tune "Thanks for the mammaries"
  4. They cheated - they waited for it to finish eating a whale and knew it wouldn't be hungry
  5. Bela - One glance at that picture and I'm gonna have bloody nightmares tonight.
  6. Oh what a catchy tune - I'll be whistling that all day now. I might put some Mahler on as an antidote.
  7. Andsome is a friendly and placid fella who is most unlikely to take umbrage at us teasing him about Mahler. Let's face it we have been doing it for 15 years and he is accustomed to it.
  8. I don't think he has posted anything this month. Has he made a New Year's Resolution to have a WF free month?
  9. I agree with you catgate - it is pleasant - but due to my hearing loss a bit quiet in places. Perhaps I sat too far away.
  10. I saw its paw leave a mark. Didn't see its ma though.
  11. I run a body paint removal service - I don't do it by machine - it is just a hands-on and olive oil service to soften and remove the paint. Will you let your friends know - I am very cheap.
  12. Speaking from experience - it's best not to show your wife that one while she has the iron in her hand
  13. Ladies and domesticated males, trans and other genders, will be pleased to read that according to the Daily Mail today (so it must be true) ironing and other mind-numbing domestic chores boost your mental health. This is because boredom causes the brain to switch to a semi sleep mode The article explains that emptying' our brains carries all sorts of health benefits, both mental and physical. It is the ultimate stress-buster, helping to boost the immune system, increase feelings of wellbeing and guard against depression. The brain has an 'emptiness mechanism' that it likes to switch on repeatedly through the day—the so-called 'twilight state', in which external stimuli are limited and brain-waves follow a pattern similar to that seen between waking and sleeping. It does this to protect itself. When we perceive danger, signals are sent to the adrenal glands to begin pumping out stress hormones, resulting in the classic high-tension fight-or-flight response — blood pressure and pulse rate rise, muscles tense, digestion and pain perception are rolled back and your brain put under a high load to deal with it. In a complex, busy, stressful world, it is activated often — probably far more so than it ever was and in some people is on permanent high alert, sapping energy and lowering our resistance to all sorts of mental and physical problems. Emptiness can offer respite and relief from this. It helps to put things into perspective, making them seem less catastrophic, and it stops our bodies from over-reacting in ways that can make us ill. But that's not all. Studies have shown that emptiness of the kind that arises from-sensory deprivation during the execution of boring chores can make us feel more creative, profoundly relaxed and even blissful. As a result of reading this I have decided to change my clothes twice a day in order that my wife is given more opportunity to rest her brain whilst ironing. To empathise, I will sit and watch her whilst she does it to give my brain a rest too. I was tempted to allow her to do the pressing of my trousers once more – but I make a better job of getting razor sharp creases down the trouser legs and will continue to do this myself. There is no need to thank me for this timely an sincere advice - it has been my pleasure to pass it on.
