Quick, Someone wrestle the bottle of Krystal out of Singaporegirl's hands.

Miss singaporegirl, the oldest original I have found is on a plaque at Marischal College, Aberdeen. It is the motto of the Keith family, hereditary Earls Marischal of Scotland. They had to emigrate for reasons of health, but did well with Frederick the Great, became Field Marshals and the like. I suppose it was just the family's line of work, being marshals. In Effi Briest, even, there is mention of Keithstrasse in Berlin. That is by the way, though. While I cannot claim it as my own, I have always thought it a good motto to live by, and I borrow it on occasion.

When you die, you lose control of your bowels. Therefore, putting on clean underwear is useless.

Maybe a diaper...

Quite right, Mr Davaar - who cares what anyone else thinks?

I apologise for my earlier post. My blepharitis is getting worse, and my touch typing clearly isn't what it was. My doctor has instructed me to bathe my eyes with hot compresses, and to wipe the lids with a cotton bud soaked with baby shampoo. A bottle of Cristal? If only...

(But did you know, topcat, that Cristal Louis Roederer was commissioned by Tsar Alexander II in 1877, who wanted it in clear crystal bottles so that it stood out? However, wine keeps best in dark glass, so today it is normally sold in an orange wrap to filter out harmful UV light.)

Why is the fluff in my tumble dryer fluff catcher always a bluey / purpley colour.. irrespective of the colour of the fabric?

Would that apply also to a product such as Louis III cognac, singaporegirl? It lives in the most beautiful crystal bottle but I have never seen it kept in the carton in which it is bought (which would certainly keep out the light.)

T'would be a great shame to spend $3,000.00 on a bottle of plonk then be forced to conceal it in dark places!

Hmmm, Interesting snippet just been on the main news, apparently we now have a group of folks called Freegans, because they object to the vast amounts of food we throw away uneaten, they are determined to live off food collected from the waste bins outside supermarkets ect.

No, these are apparently afluent peeps with a social concience, one used to have one of those, but fortunately rather like ones acne one grew out of it.
One shudders to think of someone like singapore girl becoming a Freegan, can you picture it?a Jimmy Choo slingbacks clad person rumaging in Tesco garbage bins.


Harrods garbage skips, yes, but Tesco's?, It just don't bare thinking about.

Ah, Ms Diamond, there is hope for you after all!

To be honest, I donít know much about cognac, which is a bit odd, given that the Chinese are the largest market for it. My uncle used to drink cognac with meals, but he never had a clear bottle! Maybe brandy doesn't age in the bottle, so itís OK to use clear glass?

I think I would prefer Harvey Nichols' garbage bins, Mr Draper - one gets a better class of rummager there.

PS Welcome back, Capn N. An account of my ordeal with my sedan chair in the sales is given a few pages back.

Hmmm, another interesting snippet re eggs, apparently, according to a lady on the Telly, Chickens with red tuffty bits on their ears lay brown eggs,whilst chickens with white tuffty its on their ears lay white eggs, now call me mister unobservant if you wish, but I don't think I ever seen a chicken with ears.
One does however prefer Brown Eggs.


Incidently it is ones intention to have a giant fry up for ones lunch today, Bacon, sausage, blackpud, fried bread, tomatoes and of course two large brown eggs.yummmy
One has a new frying pan about two foot in diameter.

Hen's ears are as rare as hen's teeth, Mr Draper. I thought that one could change the colour of an egg shell by changing the hen's diet.

I was very taken with some fancy fowl with feathered feet I saw at an agricultural show a few years ago. Maybe I should get some shoes with feathers on.

Reportedly, the inhabitants of New York City mostly prefer brown eggs.

There is a variety of chook (that's Ozspeak for "hen") which lays multi-coloured eggs. I believe it is an Aracana or Araucana or somesuch ... perhaps Mr. D. could google for it.

(That would make it a googlie egg ... right???)





I'll just leave quietly.
