Back on course. Got to pick up the auntie twin from the station in the morning. But should still have time to paint the walls green with pink windowframes before I go...



This could be useful.

Seeman, lass das Traeumen
Denk' nicht an zu Haus.
Seeman, Wind und Wellen
Rufen dich hinaus
Deine Heimat ist das Meer
Deine Freunde sind die Sterne

Is there more one should know?
That one, alas, comes from an unknown source, dead, gone, kaput, like the parrot, "One with Yesterday's Seven Thousand Years". Wouldn't presume to revive it. Wouldn't even try. But now one will never know.

Grand idea Mr Draper sire, but I value my (whatever the Latin for gonads is) too highly.

Ere, no she tended to specialise in Sprog garments, booties liberty bodices little wooley hats and such as there always seemed to be ladies recently sprogulated or near sprogulation in the neighborhood in those days.

Thought they made up IV for the clocks, as IIII, while correct, looked a bit unbalanced.

Where did the tradition of 10,000 posts on TRABB come about?? How come the two letters thread gets 20,000 posts of sommat??

Back in the mists of time, TRABB was the biggest and fastest growing thread in here and nobody was sure what would happen after a thread reached 10000 posts. As it would have been a shame to lose all those TPSOI, it was decided to close the first one at 9999.

Thus was a tradition born. (At least I think so.)
