Singaporegirl, I'll speak to Bogdan. He's not usually so fluent. You'd almost think someone had been helping him. He owns the farm; clear. Grade Three education. Ein schlaue Bauer, as we say.

Big Tudor: Bogdan also owns the John Deere, but I have a Canadian Tire 48 c.c., o.h.v., rotary mower you can borrow any time.

No, Singaporegirl, I don't suppose Jimmy does offer much beyond the hunting accessories. I checked and I had to purse my lips. Pretty shocked, I can tell you:

P.S. Kinda neat, though. The shoes, of course.

That's why they're called stilettos (stiletti?) Mr Davaar - they're sharp and to the point.

I was just working on the feint and riposte when an inner voice said: "Davaar! Watch it here! Have you learned nothing over the years?". And I answered: "Yes, I have". So I say: "How right you are, m'dear".

My local Ford garage has nothing to do with filling in annoying dips in the road that fill up with water. This is disconcerting cos the intersection outside Antipodeoa-sur-lac regularly acquires a waterway sufficient to land an Empire-class flying boat.

Incidently the American version of the Union flag which they like to forget they flew once, was called the Grand Union Flag, that turncoat scallywag John Paul Jones, refused to fly anything but the grand Union Flag on his ship, which seems a bit strange.
Read recently that old John Paul was becalmed on one of his pirate..sorry privateering..raids off the Skelligs near County Kerry.

He had one of the boats lowered to tow the ship away from the rocks.

Unfortunately he crewed it with Irishmen who had not taken kindly to being pressed into the navy, so they cut the tow rope and rowed ashore, probably with a few appropriate gestures.

There are a number of great white sharks hanging around the Left coast looking for self powered food in wetsuits. One woman, apparently resembling a seal, was a tasty morsel for a twenty footer a couple of weeks ago. Feckin hate things that eat you.

Is Mr Spork a colleague of James T Kork?

There's probably scope for a rhyme there somewhere, but I'm too tired to think of one at the moment.

The newly discovered asteroid 2003 QQ47 has been given a Torino rating of 1, following 51 initial observations over a period of just over 6 days. The Torino rating relates to a potential impact on 21 March 2014. The overall impact probability for this asteroid is currently 1 in 909 000. The asteroid has an estimated diameter of 1.24 km.

Should just about manage to wipe out Mr Draper if he continues to eat Sara Lee gateaux at the current rate. (And then I will move to the top of the table.)

Was that a male or female hippopotamus Kwasi_Mensa? And had it just been informed about asteroid 2003 QQ47? If so, it's understandable that it would express some concern.

I wouldn't worry too much about the asteroid though. I had a Torino once, and it didn't go very fast at all.

I thought only Starsky (Hutch's partner) drove around in the penis car Torino. I bet a hippo would scream that loud if a great white was chowing down on it.

Out of the mouths of babes as they say, you may well have inadvertently hit on the solution singaporegirl.
Ones research has shown that the Sara Lee Blackcurrent Gateau has exactly the viscosity that will cause it to adhere to a low suface gravity body consisting of mixed rock water and methane ice. Ergo we soft land thirty trillion Sara Lee Blackcurrent Gateau's on the suface of this Asteroid thus causing a increase in its mass,and as Asteroids specificly the earth orbit crossing ones follow very eccentric eliptical orbits around our sun, increasing the mass without altering the orbital velocity will cause a decrease in the orbital eccentricity, thus said rock will miss us by miles.
One does not care much for the Sara Lee Backcurrent Gataeu so one will not be to concerened at the entire stock of Sara Lee blackcurrent Gataeu's is used up on this Earth saving mission.
