Woo hoooo! Fri 23 Oct 2009 06:46:05 GMT+1 pmmolly Fifi and Lady SueAny room for a 'small one' while you dish out that tea?I won't get in your way- I'm just off for a dip on the new beach. Chin- chin!

Pull up a mug.;o) Fri 23 Oct 2009 06:15:18 GMT+1 Lady_Sue Sid, see my 506, I have already capitulated (very rare, as I'm sure you know but I will admit when I'm wrong). Another morning, a Friday, possibly another new beach. Just as well, this one needs a good tidy-up after last night's festivities. What a wreak, er, week!Will just pop the kettle on and rustle up a bit of breakfast.*tiptoes past sleeping, snoring froggers* Fri 23 Oct 2009 05:23:55 GMT+1 ValeryP Thanks Big Sis! *waves back*Hammock, here I come, nite all x Thu 22 Oct 2009 23:15:27 GMT+1 Big Sister Val, why don't you use my printer? There you go .... Sorted, as they say ;o) Thu 22 Oct 2009 23:10:38 GMT+1 ValeryP B8gger, s*dding black ink cartridge is empty in the printer and I'm trying to print out a receipt that I need to present at a Box Office to pick up tickets. Gah - technology! Thu 22 Oct 2009 23:01:20 GMT+1 needsanewnickname I could ask the same question. But it's bed time. Phew - what a day! Thu 22 Oct 2009 22:58:21 GMT+1 ValeryP Hey,am I too late for the champers, I have been baking 2 cakes - one for the Beach Party here, and one for my big bro's big 60 party tomorrow. What am I doing with a 60 yr old bro when I'm still 17 (inside)btw, how did that happen? Thu 22 Oct 2009 22:49:53 GMT+1 lucien desgai 537 FifiOne frogger, four camels and a milking tube. Thu 22 Oct 2009 22:45:07 GMT+1 Fifi Let's Face it, Andy, in my Book this isn't the place to talk about it really. Know wot oi mean?? Before you take the express pedalo over to the beach of faces, let me take you on a Cook's Tour of the new extension, so rapidly and expertly thrown u.... er.... erec.... er.... BUILT!!!!! by Sid no less. In the absence of DI Wyman (who's not even a ghost of his former self these days) Sid has had to bribe the planners AND do the construction all by himself. Well, Sue handed him the nails (once she'd finished polishing them) and ValP provided the cake. These measures were necessary because the naughty step just wasn't big enough any more. There was, at one point, only one frogger left on the beach while the rest of us were crammed in there together, sniggering! Thu 22 Oct 2009 21:48:34 GMT+1 andycroak Feefs (532) : wow, what a list! What 'appened to 'em all? I pop in every now and then, when I'm brave enough ;) How are things then, chaps?Ax Thu 22 Oct 2009 21:36:24 GMT+1 Sid Well done for cracking the 500 - and well done to Frances O for joining us here (I found a note from her the other day saying she didn't know how to get to 501).Am I too late to accept Lady Sue's bet (that all this wouldn't happen)?Anyway - been watching Steve win Masterchef, with my heart in my mouth. The stress! Thu 22 Oct 2009 21:24:51 GMT+1 Fifi Sue - I think the only things that are normally wreaked are revenge and havoc. It's a fab word isn't it!BTW in the twittery glittery place, newsreader Kathy Clugston has been complimenting Stainless Steel Cat on his verbal dexterity. Praise indeed, from the mistress of the pithy one-liner herself. [Note to plotting froggers: if we ever do manage that fest-invite to TVC, Ms Klugston has to be an honorary guest... she's soooo on our wavelength.] Thu 22 Oct 2009 21:17:49 GMT+1 Lady_Sue Lucien@515: I love you forever for this! Sadly I've got a message which says my system requirements aren't suitable. Oh fie! Will have another go in the morning.Preston@516: 1K! Good heavens! Shall we all 'go for it'? I'm so loving Diggles. I'm so loving the bunting. I'm so loving the beach.Definitely time to bring back ghosts of days gone bye - I would love to meet them. Let's just have a party and hope they hear about it and rock up. [Fifi: 'wreak'? wreak? - sounds like a cross between 'reek' (chimney?) and 'shipwreck' (not funny without a Mae West). Do explain]Meanwhile: more fizz anyone?

Thu 22 Oct 2009 19:14:10 GMT+1 SproutGhost Little Red 510, Diggles is about to launch a mission against the enemies sheds.Can't say much, all terribly hush hush and all that!Mum's the word OK?:-p Thu 22 Oct 2009 19:13:00 GMT+1 SproutGhost Brill! Thu 22 Oct 2009 19:07:55 GMT+1 SproutGhost Previously on Diggles…..……..But Diggles was not put off by this, “Why on earth can’t he wear a uniform” thought Diggles, “But clearly he is excited about something” he mused glancing down!………..”Right Chaps this is the plan” said the CO to the assembled pilots of A and B Flights. “I want Diggles and his pals to carry out this raid with Tossey Wright and the rest of ‘B’ flight to give top cover.”Diggles was smiling from ‘ere to ‘ere at this, he had been after the Baron Von Vinkle for months. Now to discover his hiding place was good news and even better that he would be able to get his own back.Diggles was still smarting from the tongue-lashing the Baron had given him that summer long ago when they were at school together and he was Von Vinkle’s fag.The CO turned towards the map pinned on the blackboard and promptly knocked his swagger off of the table, as he bent over to pick it up Olgy fainted, Minger gave a startled cry and even Diggles had to stifle a retch as they were given a full on view of where the sun don’t shine. More disturbing was the sight of Tossey Wright’s tongue hanging out and a wild glint in his one good eye.Standing up and turning back to his assembled flyers the Squadron Leader rapped on the black board for attention. “Right you lot, I want Tossey and his chaps to loiter over here to the East and Diggles I want you Minger and Olgy to come in low and hit those sheds with all you’ve got”“But Sir” whined Tossey “why Diggles? Why can’t ‘B’ flight take out those damned sheds?” but he trailed off as the CO turned and gave Wright his best glowering stare.“But Sir?…dontcha But Sir me! Do I have to remind you of the last little outing you had? Do I?”Tossey visibly shrank back into his sun lounger as the CO turned on him and he remembered how he had accidentally shot the CO’s favourite goat.Turning back to the rest, who were now having fits of giggles “Anybody have any questions?” Minger stuck his hand up “Good. Carry on then” and with that the Squadron Leader left the briefing….to be continued… Thu 22 Oct 2009 19:07:08 GMT+1 SproutGhost And me..can I have some as well..what ever it is as I am stuck at 501! Thu 22 Oct 2009 19:04:09 GMT+1 U14138029 Sue - The very first 'Beach' (dayone) was taken to over 1000. Thu 22 Oct 2009 18:55:28 GMT+1 lucien desgai 513 Lady_SueTry installing Real Alternative in place of Realplayer. It's free, safe, plays BBC realmedia streams and is a lot less messy than the official player.If you do install it make sure you uninstall Realplayer first. Thu 22 Oct 2009 18:47:59 GMT+1 needsanewnickname Hello, Little Red! What a fab day - over 500 posts, a new verandah, and four Froggy friends back on the Beach again!i think fizz is a good idea, Big Sis. Thu 22 Oct 2009 18:42:11 GMT+1 Lady_Sue Can any of you terribly clever froggers tell me what the record is for entries on 'The Beach' or other threads? Should we be pushing the boat out (no clues who we'd like in it) this week to break all previous records? [I'm nearly as cross as Frances at a Self-Service till - I raced home to listen to PM in the comfort of same, sprinted up to my study to click the 'Listen Live' button and got an instruction that I had to download a newer version of RealPlayer before I could. I've spent the last hour and a half (in between taking canines on run, feeding them, starting dinner, opening wine) trying to connect and have no joy at all. Is this some kind of conspiracy?]Oh well, that's RL, this is the beach - fiddle de dee - more champagne Big Sis? Lovely to have you back BTW and so nice to see you here again Little Red. Do you get Autumn over there? Thu 22 Oct 2009 18:29:51 GMT+1 Fifi My 501 hasn't appeared. Gah! Thu 22 Oct 2009 18:09:41 GMT+1 Fifi Congratulations, froggers, we've achieved another 500 Beach this week!Gillian, where's your bunting? I think it's time we decorated the Naughty Verandah in honour of the suspicious occasion...[sic] Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:52:30 GMT+1 Little Red Evening all! I'm am officially back from my hols. And boy have things changed in RL. The rainy season has started and everything is green green green. Oh and flooded too.So, save me a read-a-thon... what's been going on around here then? Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:42:23 GMT+1 lucien desgai 504 Lady_SueThat's because I put candyfloss in your keyboard! Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:35:51 GMT+1 U14138029 Blimey, Big Sis, I think we can do that as well. There was something at the bottom of the case labelled "Conversion Kit - requires cocoa solids." - it didn't make any sense to me. Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:31:49 GMT+1 Big Sister Make mine champagne, Lady Sue - I could do with a few bubbles up my nose. Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:30:15 GMT+1 Lady_Sue I take it all back. There's a 'Next' and 'Previous' icon. A chocolate fountain? Maybe the lads will take on that notion tomorrow. Time to goof off - G&T anyone? Vino collapso? Champagne to celebrate the new fountain. Does it have name yet? Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:29:35 GMT+1 Big Sister We're on a bit of a Magic Roundabout here, if no-one else had realised. Somebody forgot to shut the door on one of the threads. Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:27:43 GMT+1 Lady_Sue Mine got stuck - Congratulations Lucien! Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:26:42 GMT+1 Big Sister Next thing you know, they'll want a chocolate fountain, Preston.

I hadn't a baldy notion!I found it in a packing case on the beach. Assembly instructions were all there but the flysheet was missing, so I didn't know what it was actually called or for. Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:25:31 GMT+1 lucien desgai YES! Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:24:49 GMT+1 Big Sister Where's Harrison Ford when you need him, Frances? (or Johnny Depp, Sean Bean, or any other useful hunk for that matter) Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:24:16 GMT+1 Lady_Sue Oh! A multi-coloured waterfall! Preston, how clever of you! Can we drink it? Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:23:32 GMT+1 U14138029 No Lucien, thats just some of the packing material. Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:20:19 GMT+1 lucien desgai 495 PFLike the recycled candyfloss. Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:17:08 GMT+1 U14138029 OK, here goes then.Hmmm. Well, it's not the colour that I expected, but I like the way it flows out the bottom and then is pumped back up. Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:15:51 GMT+1 Big Sister No no, Preston, that won't be necessary (assuming, of course, that your qualifications are valid on the Beach). Well done, everyone! Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:13:34 GMT+1 U14138029 Big Sis - I'm NICEIC certified, but if you want, you can switch it on. Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:09:16 GMT+1 Big Sister Phew, Preson, that was close!Now, how about that IEE inspection? Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:08:36 GMT+1 needsanewnickname All hands on deck! Er, decking! Quick, get the camels roped up. Guys, take the strain, soon have this sorted out... Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:06:26 GMT+1 U14138029 Don't worry, I have the remote control for the brakes. Now doesn't that look good. Will I plug it in now? Thu 22 Oct 2009 17:05:49 GMT+1 Big Sister Look out, Frances - It's starting to roll backwards down the hill ......
