A woman had her husband's ashes made into an egg timer when he died so he could still "help" in the kitchen.

Over 1000 posts and I bought this Personal Title to try and tell my mother the embarrassing news that I am a closet Jazz fan.

Started on page eleven today. Worked out that if I am to get to the end before ... well, you know what, I'd better pick up speed.

February is better than November. The days are getting longer and there aren't as many of them.

My brain still hurts but not as badly. Not sure about my left elbow, though.

Watching Things to Do in Denver When Your Dead, nobody plays a evil bastard better than Christopher Walken, best movie baddy for years.

Drapes, you have just gone over 24 hours without posting in this esteemed thread.

Losing interest?

Mmm, RRBATPSOI is getting a bit near the bottom of page 1 of the index so perhaps it is time to share this bit of info:

Archduke Francis Ferdinand of Austria was remarkably vain. Prior to attending formal functions, for example, he would have himself literally sewn into his uniform, lest his appearance be marred by a wrinkle. Unfortunately, the Archduke's vanity proved his undoing...

When he was shot (by Serbian nationalist Gavrilo Princip) in Sarajevo, on June 28, 1914, attendants were dismayed to find that his uniform contained no buttons. By the time scissors were found, Ferdinand had bled to death.

The prison population in Lancashire is the highest in the country.
The percentage of the population of Lancashire in prison is also the highest in the country.
Does anyone know if Lancashire has more prisons than anywhere else?

Not a great idea, then, Duckbutt; only sew-sew.

O K. I was leaving anyway.

Marilyne Monro was sown into that dress she wore when she sang happy birthday Mr President for Kennedy, I would have unpicked the stiches with me teeth so as to avoid cutting her with the scissors.
Had she asked me to unstitch her that is,which she didn't incidently.

Or perhaps he was a secret Amish. They don't allow buttons or other forms of adornment, considering them to be signs of vanity.

Drapes, have you noticed that it's getting increasingly more difficult to keep interest in this thread over the weekend.

Now some of us (we know who we are) make the effort and post in our own time, as well as that of our employers. Some (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE) do not.

Come on, we've all got PC's at home as well as at work.. make the effort and keep up.

A secret Amish? Hmmm. Interesting possibility. Against that, though, at the material moment he was riding in a motor vehicle, not the trad. one-horse buggy. Perhaps, to pursue the thought, he was of aspirate-deviant Scottish stock, a secret Hamish?

A subordinate or collateral apercu: they do dig deeply into Occidental arcana at that ladies' seminary in Singapore, don't they?

Why do Americans say fix eggs? If one remembers correctly all the Kings Horses and all the Kings men couldn't manage that.
Incidently when did xmas trees arrive in America? as one understands it they were introduced to blighty quite recently by Queen Victoria's hubby, how and when did they get to America?


PS just been to another website, apparently Americans are all agog about this new movie Master and Commander, it is I am reliable informed about British Seafaring Chaps on a British
Man o war.
Never mind, in another four hundred years they will be able to make movies about their own history.
Oh thats sarcy, that is Drapes.
One thinks one will return to that other website and post it there.

Maybe his horse was lamish, so was unavailable that day.

I didn't learn about the Amish at school, Mr Davaar - it was from watching Witness, with Harrison Ford.
