Exactly, you know it's been a bad day when you start thinking like that.

Anyway...c'mon, can I tease a little smile outta ya.. Go on, you know you want to....


Let's see that big cheesy grin!!







Boring info, I've only got lemon flavoured lemsips left and I don't like them. I had a choice in the pub....pop over to boots & buy some more blackcurrent ones...or stop for a last quick pint...I stopped for the quickie. Now I feel

Just for you

Surely you shouldn't mix lemsip with beer?

Doh...too late

If I don't make it through the night, my brother (younger) can have my car. You can take your pick from my CDs and DVD collection.

The fog never lifted here all day. It's not starting to look dark again. 70 miles on dark foggy night..perfect way to end the day.

You're quite correct Ms Desk - you shouldn't mix beer with Lem-Sip. Drink them separately like all civilised people. Why are all flavours of drinks like that so bland and samey? How about a Jack Daniels flavour Lem-Sip, or Old Speckled Hen flavour? If you really want to be "out of it", try a scotch and Night Nurse.

You'll have trouble driving - you might even have trouble standing up...

I don't think there's any problem mixing Lemsip with Northern beer - might make it taste a bit better and get the strength up a tad

Was a bit misty or foggy here all day too. Must have been better than elsewhere though, we got a lot of diversions in.

six descent stages of the Lunar excursion module remain on the moon, for obvious reasons the ascent stages are not there
Aren't they in UL730's garden, next to a rusting robot?
(And a strangely coloured garden gnome)

Can one of you provide me with a copy of the British Standard for concrete garden gnomes? Years ago someone had a copy posted outside his office door where I worked in the States.

Sorry - they come under the National Elf Service now, and BS9002 is not applicable.

In days of yore, the beaver still roamed the British Isles,
and was thought to be a type of fish.
On the arrival of Christianity to these shores, people were forbidden to eat meat on a Friday.
Beavers are now extinct in the British Isles.

Alright, who the **** was sacrificed to man the camera showing the lunar module blasting of from the moon to return to the orbiter? Always wondered who the third guy in the lander was.

Oz for goodness' sake, The Third Man? Orson Welles. Have you seen him around of late?

Anybody else notice, that the actor Tommy Lee Jones has a enormous head ?,one does not mean he is conceited, one means he has a enormous barnet, not a bad actor though.
One tends to notice such things.

Interestingly the Lunar Excursion Module had the only controlable thrust solid fuel rocket motor ever built, a solid fuel rocket with a throttle is very difficult to engineer, damm clever them Yanks.
The first Fly by wire Aircraft was a Voigt Corsair, its fly by wire system was lifted directly from the Command and Service Module of the Apollo Spacecraft.
Not many people know that.

But you wouldn't remember that Buster.
Actually Ozzy, you'd be suprised what my Grandad told me about the Apollo missions. You might remember him, Joe "Snifta" Hyman? He was the one who planned all of the launches & re-entries...up & down, up & down...that's all he'd ever say about his work...

One became somewhat disillusioned with the perceived dimensional proportionality of actors (and actresses) when one read that Miss P. Anderson’s primary assets were not entirely organic and that Mr T. Cruise is not 6’ tall.

Next thing they’ll be telling me is all those creatures in Walt Disney films can’t really talk.
