It hasn't rained here for at least....hmmmm..... 10 minutes.

It appears that any discussion involving the Leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition and his Shadow Cabinet appointments is not smiled upon in another thread.

After a drought of half an hour we had a most refreshing shower, and after that the rain set in...

I'm still thinking of Bluey's secondhand tights. Do they all have to be donated to Lilly, or might there be a pair or two left over?

Pair of tights? From my gadabout days, the problem was that they were not a 'pair' at all

somewhat puzzling

Hopefully, those who enjoyed the contributions of some of the more colorful members here will find a way to join the new thread.

We do all know about it, fin but I think it should be the other way around ...

------------------------------

I thought 'everyone knew' that the majority of those missing from here are not ABLE to post here, having been banned from doing so, or having had the thread locked for them, or getting repeated messages that the forum was unavailable.

Also puzzled why someone who "knew" about the other thread would inquire about a former participant here who posts there regularly.

With all the rain that folk seem to be enduring perhaps one of these would be useful (although I suspect the price would be more than 17s/6d)

My father (the man from the Pru) always carried a Pakamac.
His rural 'beat' frequently meant leaving the car at one farm whilst walking between other farms to collect the 'insurance money' (left on the table in the unlocked living room), so having a compact waterproof coat was a boon to him.
He called it his 'smokey Joe' (his name was Joseph).

Horrible garments. They were like wearing a portable sauna and while protecting you from rain, made you all steamy inside them.

Morning folks. All is well at the moment. Clear blue skies, bright sunshine and Flying Scotsman in steam.

BBC tugging at the heartstrings again with reports on the "plight" of people from warmer climes finding it hard to deal with European winters. Am I alone in being somewhat weary of the BBC's reporting these days?

Like the picture of that owl.

No, there's a least two of us.
I'm sick of wind generators always making it into shot as well whatever
the video report may be about.

BBC News never have so many been involved in telling us so little.
