    Hello Everyone

    I am deeply concerned about the apparent disappearance of Stella. It is several months since she first came into our "family". Since then she seems to have vanished (or disappeared).

    Just in case you thought I was joking

    I think this matter needs investigating before it gets "out of hand".

    Hello Everyone

    Well, it is good to know "She" is in safe hands now, (if she has been found).

    No Problems?

    I have tried to find the answer to your question in vain. I also tried to find out if Atoms were edible, (particularly after 9.0 p.m.)

    The quest for nadir ointment is not having the enormous success that was expected. This has led to a need to refine the home guards, and re assess Mrs. Sutcliffe's Biceps. It has been known for quite a while that she uses Eritrean lard for tuning her Pit Bull-terrier before rolling it up and put it in the cupboard for the winter.

    It is now too late to save any of the nadir ointment. I must try to find a good substitute.

    That is a very interesting question, pops, The current amount of zeniths "used up" (and/or " lost & not found") has increased amazingly since the introduction of early closing in all the shops and takeaways that do not permit zenith servicing more than 4 hours (after six o.clock p.m. on Wednesdays.) This does not seem to have affected

    Sports wear

    I was driving along through a local village, yesterday, when I espied a coalman (delivering coal oddly enough). What struck me was that he was wearing a baseball cap. It struck me as odd on two counts. The first being that he had it on with the neb at the front and second it is not the attire one normally associates with caolmen ( or even coalmen). Then I started wondering about the way sports clothing has become normal everyday wear for many, e.g. rugby shirts, trainers, jockey short. This led me to wonder if there is anyone out there wearing a cricketers box, or a scrum cap or if we will ever see boxers gumshields worn to the office. I used to have a beautiful pair of Cotton Oxfords that were far too good for everyday wear.

    "Coupled with the fact that the whole raison d'être of Windows Forum is effectively obsolete . . . . . . ." I suspect Windows Forum is just approaching it's "Zenith", which, suitably treated, could carry on for at least another year or two (should we all be spared!)

    What are you having for dinner today?

    I do hope you have ensured that the Riviera is still there, before you go out trying to purchase any bits of it . It is such an odd place that people take away lumps of it as trophies. There may be none left when you arrive.

    I have a long way to walk and also a long way back.........it all depends We of the older orders are not as young as the older "olders" used to be, when they were younger than we who were (and still are) slightly older. It is of little importance until something arises to that is important to the "olders". But the youngsters are simply "all agog! " by late afternoon on every Thursday after 3 p.m. I have talked to one or two people, who wish for change in size, but sadly I can not advise them, since I am bound by the promise to ignore all passing handcarts and ladys with excessive wobbles.

    What is keyword stemming?

    Since the above information (dealing with the matter of the difference between oak and "cured dribblings" ) was first raised, it has been discovered that, as a building material, cured dribblings is totally unbeatable for keeping out the drunken vicars that, all too frequently these days, are more than necessarily quite friendly on a Wednesday (often without salami).

    Sadly, I no longer have any motorcycles, fast or slow.. I have had many during the long time I used & enjoyed them. My first was a pre-war, hand-change, Rudge Ulster 500cc . My last were a couple of BMW 988cc (that took us all over U.K. and Europe, with little more than routine servicing and holding the speed less than 100 mph. Sadly the "Passing of the Years" came along and the "Bike" needed retirement (and so did the passengers.0 The weeping is gradually abating.

    In days gone by it was stuffed by the butler with a 2lb snag track. But if the weather was too cold a small group of professional leather thrashers would apply a paste made up of cold tripe and sweet klick.

    Why the hell not 88

    Poor, unlucky child. There must be great discomfort in wandering about with all that excess load.

    Forum appearance change request

    I think a shower would be welcomed .... unless,,,,,,,,,the bloody stuff got out of hand and forgot to turn the tap off at the right time. We moved here, several years ago, because we were fed up of the Craven areas generosity with rain. I asked the Met office about the driest place in the York area and I was told Seaton Ross filled the bill, and It seems to have done just what we want. The village is like something on a postcard. It has several flaws and several are great big high powered tractors dashing up and down the village, doing what tractors do when they are dashing up and down a village..
  25. Most of what I contribute here is utter rubbish, so I do not worry about it.😪
