The mods are saying ninety-seventies links to the jukebox are forbidden now (copyright issues).That's it for me then. Have fun guys. Thu 24 Feb 2011 23:35:05 GMT+1 Big Sister Stewart, it's annoying when it gets in the way like that, isn't it? ;) Thu 24 Feb 2011 23:30:30 GMT+1 Stewart_M Sis (346) Been busy ish. RL hassling me. Absolutely awful.

Thu 24 Feb 2011 22:55:05 GMT+1 Ellis P Otter This post has been Removed Thu 24 Feb 2011 22:52:07 GMT+1 lucien desgai That sounds like a very powerful drill. Thu 24 Feb 2011 22:10:14 GMT+1 annasee I hope you're all up to speed with your earthquake drill here on the beach. We used to have it at school. I'd forgotten that, till recent events reminded me. We're going to Christchurch in a month or so. Suspect we won't be going into the centre of town much. One of the glories of Christchurch used to be all the old Victorian stone buildings. Quite unusual for NZ. Most buildings were of wood, because of the earthquake risk.But we used to think Christchurch didn't get earthquakes in the way the North Island did. How wrong we were on that count... Thu 24 Feb 2011 22:06:16 GMT+1 lucien desgai I have a bottle of Thunderbird, Lady Sue ... you're very welcome to take a swig. Thu 24 Feb 2011 20:20:26 GMT+1 Lady_Sue Wine? Wine? Anywhere? Thu 24 Feb 2011 20:16:53 GMT+1 DiY ....dunt forget the flagons of Scrumpy! Thu 24 Feb 2011 19:52:40 GMT+1 Ellis P Otter *whistling tunelessly*I heard the sound of a beach on the radio just now. A good omen?Nataliya and Leonid certainly paused in their steps too...We might give the jukebox another try later.Meanwhile, I'll just dust off these glasses and ensure the optics are clean and the beer pumps shiny and flowing freely. Thu 24 Feb 2011 18:07:28 GMT+1 DiY I agree with Alan, and I would also add that they need to be up to speed on currant events. Thu 24 Feb 2011 17:20:32 GMT+1 Alan_N Depends entirely on the circumstances and the extent of our acquaintance. Thu 24 Feb 2011 16:16:22 GMT+1 Anne P So, Alan, what do you usually say to sticky buns? Thu 24 Feb 2011 16:09:29 GMT+1 Alan_N I never say no to a sticky bun... Thu 24 Feb 2011 13:37:07 GMT+1 DiY I think it just about time for a cup of coffee and a sticky bun!

Wed 23 Feb 2011 21:31:05 GMT+1 DiY Wow..............Aunty Gillianianian....nice buns! Wed 23 Feb 2011 20:49:30 GMT+1 DiY Diggles strolled over to his Soppy Camel and kicked the ol' girl. "Come on you, laundry to be done, get a move on, need my best Speedos washed, starched and pressed as the morrow promises to be a busy day" said Diggles to the wrinkled ol' washer woman."I say Digglesworth! That is not the way treat the fairer sex" said Minger just before the cricket bat Diggles was cluthing struck him amidships! "Steady on old boy" cried Olgy a split second before the mashie Diggles was swinging struck him in the area of his Sporon."I'll be having that sir" said David, his faithful batman as Diggles swung a 6' stuffed Eel at him. "Is there a problem sir?" enquired David."You know bally well what the problem is" shouted Diggles, "It's the BBC and the Home Service. Rumour has it that the Lord Mair is not going to replenish the Beach. Dash it all man, 'A' flight, 53 (F) Sqdn have been to hell and back. Is to end just like this?"......... Wed 23 Feb 2011 20:31:27 GMT+1 Gillianian The Young Macallan has just given me a dollop of his marmalade to have on my Hot Cross Bun.

It were getting a bit lonely here by myself, even thought of ringing Dave and asking him over for a nice sit down and a cup of tea, but he is busy chasing Camels and selling guns on another Beach!Nice hat by the way!;o) Wed 23 Feb 2011 18:23:51 GMT+1 Gillianian Is Mr Shifter paying us a visit, Big Sister? I'd better make some light refreshments then! Wed 23 Feb 2011 17:25:56 GMT+1 Big Sister Coo-ee!

Tue 22 Feb 2011 12:44:47 GMT+1 DiY Well there seems to be an unending supply so I guess three each!I am more concerened the sauce will run out! Tue 22 Feb 2011 12:39:02 GMT+1 Sindy 322.

Tue 22 Feb 2011 10:33:45 GMT+1 Big Sister I think I'll go and bury my head in the sand, Sid. Or, perhaps, you could hold the games on the 'other' beach? Not a Brucie fan, I'm afraid. Tue 22 Feb 2011 10:31:52 GMT+1 Sindy I see it's Bruce Forsyth's birthday today ... should we organise some appropriate games for later? Tue 22 Feb 2011 10:25:18 GMT+1 Big Sister Stewart was complaining 'elsewhere' that the August beach was unseasonal. I thought he might prefer this one ;) Tue 22 Feb 2011 10:12:46 GMT+1 Sindy It's more Februaryish ... which I think was Big Sister's intention. Certainly plenty of freshly squeezed orange juice about! Tue 22 Feb 2011 09:35:30 GMT+1 DiY Is this the 'live' Beach?Confused of Norwich. Tue 22 Feb 2011 09:28:34 GMT+1 Sindy Oh look - the traditional explanation of geralds (#302). Tue 22 Feb 2011 09:26:26 GMT+1 Big Sister Do you prefer this one, Stewart?

Doh.Please bear with me. Pint mug of tea and something more substantial than a cross aunt I think, egg and bacon gerald with brown sauce, maybe. Fri 05 Mar 2010 08:50:08 GMT+1 Sindy (My 302 explains my 301 in slightly more detail.)

Fri 05 Mar 2010 06:55:29 GMT+1 lucien desgai 293 IHReminds me of the underground dj spinning in his grave. Fri 05 Mar 2010 06:23:34 GMT+1 The Intermittent Horse You may have missed this important announcement.With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it isworth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almostwent unnoticed last week.Larry LaPrise, the man who wrote "The Hokey Kokey," died peacefully at age93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into thecoffin. They put his left leg in....... And then the trouble started. Fri 05 Mar 2010 00:47:28 GMT+1 Stewart_M Sam's better than John. But delivery between 9 and 11 Thu 04 Mar 2010 22:19:49 GMT+1 Big Jim Could you grab me a few tins of John Smith's, please.

Thu 04 Mar 2010 21:04:58 GMT+1 Ellis P Otter I'll have to go down to the cellar for that one Jim :-)Ah well, busy night ahead to get all those safety features in place, to protect us from all these excess elephants, in case Sequin decides to open a fresh beach in the morning. Thu 04 Mar 2010 20:20:44 GMT+1 Gillianian I'm with Big Jim - a pint of Banks's Mild for me too, please. Thu 04 Mar 2010 20:17:19 GMT+1 Big Jim I'll have a pint of Uncle Arthur's dark elixir, thanks, Mr Otter. Thu 04 Mar 2010 20:00:01 GMT+1 lucien desgai I'll have a three pint boot please Ellis. Thu 04 Mar 2010 19:35:30 GMT+1 Ellis P Otter I knew it would be something eminently sensible and wise.The other beach is too noisy now ... there's a maniac running about with a shotgun scaring the camels and causing mayhem.I'll clear up that mess later.For now though, I think the only thing I'm going to pull here is pints.DiY, lucien, Jim, davmcn?Anne, what can I get you? Thu 04 Mar 2010 19:28:27 GMT+1 lucien desgai 283 DiYAll well and good, but Fifi fails to mention the ratner theory (of prawn geralds). Thu 04 Mar 2010 19:15:26 GMT+1 DiY Ellis P, Feefs post 31 should explain why a gerald is a gerald. Thu 04 Mar 2010 19:10:15 GMT+1 Big Jim Now there's an interesting time/place! Thu 04 Mar 2010 18:57:54 GMT+1 Anne P 279 - lost in the dim and distant already..... Thu 04 Mar 2010 18:46:43 GMT+1 Big Jim That's the reason, apparently. Thu 04 Mar 2010 18:41:23 GMT+1 Ellis P Otter While it's quiet, I thought I might ask something that's been troubling me deeply concerning the savoury snacks on offer.Why gerald? I've never heard the term before coming here. Thu 04 Mar 2010 18:31:46 GMT+1 DiY Nearly! Thu 04 Mar 2010 18:19:25 GMT+1 Ellis P Otter Here you go Sir, recovered from Suffolk?

Thu 04 Mar 2010 17:47:39 GMT+1 Ellis P Otter With these lengthening days I'm going to have to move the yardarm.A pint of your finest please barman.Ahhhhh, perfick. Thu 04 Mar 2010 17:42:39 GMT+1 DiY davmcn, I am starting to worry about you and your Cowley Street fixation!Perhaps now is the time to come out of the closet? There is nothing wrong in owning up to being a Lib DEm!;-) Thu 04 Mar 2010 17:41:12 GMT+1 davmcn BS 266, Cowley St has been advised. And a certan Dib Lem Lord lives in St Albans... Thu 04 Mar 2010 17:15:27 GMT+1 davmcn BS 266, Yeah, Sid the kid-der. Thu 04 Mar 2010 17:03:55 GMT+1 Ellis P Otter Seems like there's a fight going on in the AM glass box, 111+ entries.Far too many to be making sense of. Quick cup of tea to warm up while I wait for the yardarm/sun thingy. Thu 04 Mar 2010 16:43:31 GMT+1 DiY :-) Thu 04 Mar 2010 13:41:04 GMT+1 lucien desgai Other fingers may be available but the thumbs are opposed.There, not so mad now. Thu 04 Mar 2010 13:21:54 GMT+1 DiY Sid, I am being led to believe that other 'fingers' are available.Of note is the 'Peers Finger' something, I am told, that has recently come to light following recent revelations on the BBC, in the House of Commons and reported in Hansard!When it is used, extra emphasis can be gained by using two fingers in a sort of 'V' shape!:-p Thu 04 Mar 2010 11:15:46 GMT+1 Big Jim Mr Otter, "Why have these beers got such strange names? I think it may be because it's difficult to order another when you've had enough ..."e.g. Tanglefoot?(other deshcriptish namsh are are, um, availabul) Thu 04 Mar 2010 10:55:15 GMT+1 Big Sister 263: He's probably teasing you. Thu 04 Mar 2010 10:12:34 GMT+1 davmcn EPO 245, I C. Mum's the word. Or Mumm, if you prefer Champagne. Thu 04 Mar 2010 09:56:27 GMT+1 lucien desgai 262 davThanks, I'll look into them.
