Wed 19 Jan 2011 16:32:59 GMT+1 The Intermittent Horse Definitely a fake I'd say. Davmercan doesn't come here any more. He's told us that often enough.

Tue 18 Jan 2011 20:52:35 GMT+1 Sindy 69. The Intermittent Horse'Twas v good, Mr Horse. Tue 18 Jan 2011 16:41:22 GMT+1 The Intermittent Horse Paraphrased from "The Year They Invented Sex" about looking for women to help with trials of the contraceptive pill, of which I heard a few minutes yesterday evening whilst in the car. Interviewer: "What contraception have you used in the past?"Interviewee: "Well I stopped going to the hairdressers - that put him off for a while."Brilliant writing. Tue 18 Jan 2011 14:43:57 GMT+1 Anne P Loot, a bit like the man who said there would never be a need for more than about five computers in the world! Tue 18 Jan 2011 14:36:30 GMT+1 Looternite Even high flyers make bad decisions, twice. Tue 18 Jan 2011 12:13:26 GMT+1 davmcn ld 65, At least being fake, the juice wouldn't fall out of a fake carton.

Tue 18 Jan 2011 11:42:37 GMT+1 DiY Morning Peeps!Tea, coffee toast and some rather fine Seville Marmalade available at NCs.Have a ticklish Tuesday.Oh...good to see Aunty Gillianianian all buffed up and shiny again.;) Tue 18 Jan 2011 07:07:41 GMT+1 WeThePeople Saw the evening swarm of the pier starlings at Aber today, for the first time.A wonderful, wonderful sight, an exquisite glory. The patterns they make dimly replicated by those rotating interweaving spirals of thin polished steel that are sold on fairground stalls that sparkle and shine.These birds singing in flight, dark against the sky, describe the geometry of infinite spirals without mathematical theory, the intricacy of a hundred thousand corps de ballet dancers without choreographer, composer, music or ballet master. If it were only travel writers on contract or globe trotters on expensive trips who could see the unbelievable swarm (a mere twentieth of a twentieth part of it shown in any film I've ever seen of it) it would be boasted of by them as World Travellers tell us of the arrival of geese in Greenland or of bats in some Borneo cave.As it is, it's for us, who can afford a week in the summer in a b and b in Aber.the starlings themselves roost each night, repaint in starling, inthe metal girders of the pier.My sister in law who sadly died, tragically young, last year, was brought up in leeds. When she moved to Bangor she wrote home excitedly that clean starlings, free of 1960s Leeds polution, have stars on their breasts! She'd never seen them before. Her mum and dad wrote back saying they knew, they'd seen photos in books.She must have seen this peerless sight often in her time on this coast. I think of her laughing in delight, in the mixed evening and neon light of the pier. Tue 18 Jan 2011 01:29:38 GMT+1 Sindy It's OK Ellis - I'll do the washing up. Mon 17 Jan 2011 22:45:39 GMT+1 Ellis P Otter I'm just going to concentrate on the cooking for now, flirting is dangerous when there are sharp kitchen knives around.Okay plate up Mon 17 Jan 2011 20:46:04 GMT+1 lucien desgai BasilDON? Mon 17 Jan 2011 19:54:37 GMT+1 Cossackgirl 57. Natashenka, dear friend! Cossacks like me come from the DON, with roots in Rostov and Uryupinsk. Due to events called revolutions and civil wars I was born in Moscow but that was a long time ago... All your wonderful meals make my mouth water! Mon 17 Jan 2011 19:47:34 GMT+1 Ellis P Otter Ellis?What, Nataliya?Who is Cossack Woman?I thought that was you!No, Ellis. I come from Vladivostock! Cossacks come from Ukraine and Dneiper. So Ellis?Look, I'm making a mess of the pasta now... she is nothing to me I promise.Hrmph!Chicken, white wine, pasta with a cream sauce?You, on probation. Mon 17 Jan 2011 19:29:36 GMT+1 Alan_N Is he taking the pith? Mon 17 Jan 2011 17:18:20 GMT+1 Gillianian No swimming for me - I'm off for a refreshing sploosh under the waterfall.

Mon 17 Jan 2011 15:06:09 GMT+1 DiY Stewart, is that a snorkel, or are you just pleased to me?Thanks Looternite, you have now spoilt it for me.;o) Mon 17 Jan 2011 13:19:14 GMT+1 Lady_Sue Erk, Stewart!

No, hang on, it's the chute from the Tonker of Freshly squeezed orange juice. Mon 17 Jan 2011 13:05:14 GMT+1 Looternite I heard on "You & Yours" that the gorilla in the Cadbury's (other chocolate brands available) advert was acually a man in a gorilla suit, blimey what will they think of next :-) Mon 17 Jan 2011 13:00:12 GMT+1 Big Sister :) Mon 17 Jan 2011 12:39:55 GMT+1 The Intermittent Horse Snap, Big Sis! Mon 17 Jan 2011 12:38:13 GMT+1 The Intermittent Horse You need to squeeze it to find out. Mon 17 Jan 2011 12:36:52 GMT+1 Big Sister Lucien, I don't squeeze speedos. Mon 17 Jan 2011 12:36:40 GMT+1 lucien desgai Oh dear Mr Nutt, is that an orange in your speedos? Mon 17 Jan 2011 12:32:20 GMT+1 DiY I think I will don my Speedos and go for a swim, seein' as it is such a lovely day.Anyone want to join me? Mon 17 Jan 2011 12:06:05 GMT+1 Big Sister Horse, I'll squeeze you freshly any time ;) Mon 17 Jan 2011 11:25:46 GMT+1 The Intermittent Horse Big Sis - Thanks for that reassurance! As it happens, I think that my life would be much improved if 'freshly squeezed' was universally applied. Mon 17 Jan 2011 11:10:00 GMT+1 Big Sister Horse, that must have been my doppelganger. I have no time for cartons. The orange juice - freshly squeezed, as ever - is available to all. Produced, as so many things on this Beach, by virtual magic. Mon 17 Jan 2011 11:04:58 GMT+1 The Intermittent Horse Sadly, the Orange Juice Fountain has not been replenished by Big Sister this morning. I watched her staring at the cartons of orange juice for three hours this morning. When I asked her what she was doing, she pointed to the cartons and said: "It says: 'Concentrate!'". Mon 17 Jan 2011 11:01:01 GMT+1 davmcn CG , I fully expect someone to refer my last post...and this one as well. Mon 17 Jan 2011 10:15:09 GMT+1 davmcn Cossackgirl 36, I tried to post on the last Ellis Glass Box ant it was removed. I suggested that for free speech people should try the Delphi Forums Idle Chit-Chat or for really 'rough language' one their other dodgy forums. There are hundreds. One to suit everybody. Mon 17 Jan 2011 10:14:05 GMT+1 DiY Morning Peeps!Sorry bit of a late start this morning, bit under the weather, still a bracing walk along the shore will help blow the cobwebs away!But before I bimble off there is tea, coffee and crossaunts at NCs.Have a momentous Monday! Mon 17 Jan 2011 08:49:55 GMT+1 WeThePeople The Beach's comic hero, as we all know, is currently being unamusing in a TV commercial dressed as an eskimo, his funny bit being caught in a zip.He's old, the joke's old.....but then his confusion between humour and arrogance never was funny, was it.Just to show you how back-dated the whole scene is, the .org he's puffing has just sent me TWO membership annual renewal cards. Both for Jan 4th 2010. A computer glitch, I was told. Like the one when they could find no record of the naff battery I'd bought from them and for which I had lost the receipt - up a filling station car vacuum nozzle.Boy, was I naif in those days. I paid three lots of instant driving 'fines' in cash to cops in jam sandwiches before I wised up. Sun 16 Jan 2011 20:51:33 GMT+1 Cossackgirl Dear ELLIS P OTTER!I have kept a friendly eye on your most excellent Glass Box and now that real life demands your full attention, I want to wish you well and to thank you for your interesting / amusing / worthwhile contributions on the PM Blog and elsewhere. I hope that you will drop by here from time to time to certain welcome from the regulars.I am one of those bloggers who were driven away from PM Blog by the mutual hostility of bloggers and the sad quality of some comments, before BBC discontinued most of the facility for people to boss others around and to be disagreeable to each other. You were never one of those!I am sorry I shall miss you on the book of faces, as I am now part of a small but growing band of rebels and resisters who consider joining that set-up as begging to be readmitted into the Matrix. We are living free and they shall not control us!.. Sun 16 Jan 2011 19:43:21 GMT+1 Stewart_M Cake anyone. Sun 16 Jan 2011 19:24:02 GMT+1 Stewart_M I'll take the empties to the recycling centre.

Sun 16 Jan 2011 08:58:53 GMT+1 Alan_N Sure did. They asked if they could have the light on to read for half an hour.

Sat 15 Jan 2011 17:26:57 GMT+1 Lady_Sue Alan, don't be silly. That camel is walking towards the Oasis and will only take the banner with him.
