I tend to look between the point you mention and thanks to some training I got from a house mate (during my time in Coventry University) I developed some solid skills on how to long in those vital parts of the female body (between legs and eyes).

Many many years ago I was told by a young lady that I was a much better person than my mate. Upon asking in what way I was told that when he looked at a young lady he seemed to be undressing her with his eyes and she and her female friends found that a bit uncomfortable. I laughed and confessed that I also undressed ladies with my eyes and I thought that all males did the same. She then replied that I didn't look like I was and so I didn't make them feel uncomfortable. However the snag was he got many more females into bed than I managed


On an even more sad note than me and young ladies I have just heard that another mate has been diagnosed with "Guillain Barre Syndrome"

Recently in a local Two Dollar shop, I noticed packets of "iron on" fabric repair stuff in various colours, one of which was denim. Surely the most useless product being sold ? Everyone seems to want to tear holes in denim Jeans - the most stupid fashion fad ever, and have you seen the price of torn Jeans ? - does anyone ever try to repair tears in Jeans ?

Plain white would do that - cheaper.

Pockets ? Doesn't everybody walk around with their iPhone glued to their right paw ?

That's similar to my experience being nice and make ladies comfortable is rather a guarantee that one will be less successful with them.

Sorry to hear about your mate and the "Guillain Barre Syndrome"

Top of the morning to you all.
Today is the anniversary in 1956 of the first football league match to be
played under floodlighting took place at Portsmouth.
The winners were Newcastle, beating Portsmouth 2-0.
Another first for Newcastle.

British Football's Floodlit Firsts - footysphere

A tad cloudy at present but forecast to be a bright, crispy day.

It has rained a couple of times today and has left a fine layer of creamy yellow dust on everything, especially the cars!

Now as the millionth p*st, that was totally boring. You are henceforward banished to the Pointless Forest.

Cue for a movie clip. Warning - this may be the best movie you ever watched, so give yourselves an hour.

Passwords ... why not use "incorrect" or "1Ncorrect" if you want to use a Capital and a number and at least 8 characters, then when you get it wrong you will be told " Your password is incorrect"

Easy.

OK, all you D.i.Y Sheddites, how do you keep all your occasionally used cordless tools and gadgets ready for use ?

I'm not an avid D.i.Y. fiend, but I do occasionally indulge, tho' if you saw the untidy half of the garage that we can't get the second car into you would think I have a PhD in Shedditeness. Not so, but I've just tried to use my cordless drill, and of course the battery was totally discharged, and so was the "spare", as usual.

Is one supposed to check every time the 1st of the month falls on a Monday, or remember at each birthday, or just keep the various batteries on charge permanently, maybe not a great power consumer but maybe a fire risk, especially as one occasionally shuts up the house from time to time, great, halfway across the Pacific - S***, forgot to unplug the drill, screwdriver, strimmer,handy car vacuum, etc. etc. batteries.

OK, what do YOU do ?

This time I used a long extension cord attached to the old electric drill with the dodgy switch, that I have to activate by twisting two bare wires together, balanced on the top of a ladder under the eaves of the house. I survived, this time.

Same as you. Find the tool discharged.

The only battery that I do keep charged is the standby generator and I have that connected to a trickle charger intended to keep motorcycle batteries up
to scratch over the long winter months of no use.

Looks like we are having to put up with 4 months of solid propaganda from
both sides of the EU in/out referendum here in the UK.
Take your pick of ambrosia or fire and brimstone offered by both sides.

+2C and raining at present but glorious sunshine promised.

Just noticed that FR24 had the BBC news and Sky news helos both orbiting near Didcot. Checked the BBC site which is reporting a major explosion.
