Nah John.

I can still remember Mary Whitehouse protesting outside a Sex Pistols' gig in Cardiff and speaking to camera:

"The Sex Pistols are demons but Johnny Rotten is the anti-christ!"

Strange woman.

Funnily enough, Chelski馃槀 but I remember ( sorry, I'm at again!!) when my daughter was born just after midnight in Hammersmith Hospital and a while later I left the hospital with my parents-in-law and there had been a punk music concert across the road and a load of youngsters had just left and were jumping onto parked cars and ranting away!馃槀

I think I smiled because I was, of course , over the moon anyway! But maybe Mary could have had a word with them!馃槀

The weather seems to be dyslexic, this isn't August weather, it's Autumn.

(Same kind of thing as brexit being great when it hasn't and Trump being great when he wasn't - maybe the weather is coming from those supporters)..

Why does it feel hotter outside when crickets are chirping?

It's the heat given off by stridulation.

I just googled the same word as you , Hoops馃槀

Stridulation!

I've never heard that on a The Who album or even the best of Jimi Hendrix! Not even Adele cared. Or Editor Bob on here!

Ok, but cricket without an s! Up to date! What a collapse by England against India today!馃槀

Just came across this post in another forum from a lady in the job section:

鈥淗i, everybody!
We'll be pleased to be part of your storytelling. If you feel confused being alone, I mean, hanging out, walking in the park, entering a shop on your own - I can be hired to have lunch, pose for photographs on fb, accompany to the night clubs, listen to your stories. My life experience led me to this activity. I'm calm and a good listener.鈥

The heading is:鈥滳ompany for lonely people聽or rent to do nothing鈥

Wow!

Evening, dear Rob!鉂わ笍

I would pay myself not to be photographed on Facebook! Facebook is for old people馃槀!

Not for the likes of you and me! Checking my memoires- our combined age is about 50 - most of those years are mine!馃槱馃槀

They have pinched that idea from the Japanese Rent-A-Friend business. I am sure there will be takers. In times of yore, spinsters used to employ companions.

No.

Just....no

Unless it is a strange new language where "haggis" means creamy lemon flavour?

I am having my first full week off work in a year and we were going to take the train and go north from Berlin for a cycling holiday....on the PRECISE dates of this train strike. Now we're waiting till later to find out if the regional trains are running (unlikely) and then we are unstead going to wait outside Deutsche Bahns offices and kick any executive looking types in the nards.

Not really obvs, just needed to rant.
