Thu 02 Oct 2008 20:23:42 GMT+1 Fifi Are you so desperate for cake, Mr Noodle?? All right, here's the practice one I made earlier.

Wake me up for food and drink.Ta.;o) [] Thu 02 Oct 2008 09:10:30 GMT+1 U10783173 Have a bumper crop this year, so have used the surplus Discovery and James Grieve to produce some tasty apple jelly, with a hint of clove. There's a large pot on the NC bar. Thu 02 Oct 2008 08:43:57 GMT+1 Fifi ...and porridge, DIY. Essential for those who want to glow with warmth from the inside! (Remember those disturbing breakfast cereal adverts, and the kid walking to school radiating??)Cross aunts for afters, with your choice of jams.

Thu 02 Oct 2008 06:06:20 GMT+1 Fifi Perhaps, Selky (181), you could have an Official Wedding Anniversary (for the party) and an Actual Wedding Anniversary?A bit like my pal's parents, who celebrate Family Christmas in June when everyone's free to do it, and then Official Christmas when you don't have to feel obliged to do the family bit!If it's good enough for our Queens... Wed 01 Oct 2008 22:27:31 GMT+1 Selkius_Piscinus In 1976 they decided to make May Day a Bank Holiday. So I got married on May 1st 1976 so I'd always have a holiday to celebrate on.The following year they decided to make it 'nearest Monday to May Day.'cads, the lot of them. Wed 01 Oct 2008 22:24:41 GMT+1 Fifi Robert Peston looks to me like someone who is short sighted and normally wears glasses. But takes them off for the camera.I used to be one of those!Anyway... he wouldn't spot a left-hook if you were quick enough. Wed 01 Oct 2008 22:13:37 GMT+1 U11204129 Well. Frances-O, it gives new meaning to'Walking down that highwayWith my suitcase in my hand' Wed 01 Oct 2008 20:03:48 GMT+1 Sid And for me, a 21, a 34, and a 69, if you'd be so kind.

Wed 01 Oct 2008 17:36:33 GMT+1 DI_Wyman D_M, my SLR didn't take photographs. Wed 01 Oct 2008 17:28:47 GMT+1 David_McNickle DI_W 172, I was using a Rolliflex and developing the film and printing the photos. The slides were sent to Kodak. Wed 01 Oct 2008 16:51:25 GMT+1 DI_Wyman David (157) in 1976 they gave me a 7.62mm SLR and sent me to Norn Iron. Wed 01 Oct 2008 16:30:34 GMT+1 Big Sister On the left of what, David?Thanks for the Southern Comfort, Sid. How did you know? ;o) Wed 01 Oct 2008 15:57:56 GMT+1 Sid A large glass of Southern Comfort here for you, Big Sister ... Wed 01 Oct 2008 15:53:37 GMT+1 David_McNickle BS 162, Betcha looked at the pics. Betcha did! I'm the one on the left. Wed 01 Oct 2008 15:37:54 GMT+1 Big Sister He's not thin enough to be cadaverous, but certainly would look good in a top hat trimmed in crepe.And, having just found ourselves being clobbered again by the credit crunch, I feel pretty funereal myself at the mo. Just have to keep reminding myself that there are plenty worse off than us. Wed 01 Oct 2008 13:49:05 GMT+1 annasee mttfh - I've just heard Mr Peston on the Media Prog on R 4. Now whenever I hear him I can't escape the image of a lanky and cadaverous-looking Victorian undertaker, complete with black top hat, as he presides over the unexpected death of yet another formerly-lively financial institution. Why should that be, do you think? Wed 01 Oct 2008 13:32:14 GMT+1 mittfh (tinkers a little with the Beach radio)Righteo, just installed a special circuit - as soon as the words "Peston", "Blythe", "bank" or "markets" are mentioned, it cuts to static for 1 minute. There's also a nice large PANIC! button which helpfully replaces the radio audio with a well-known song from the end of a film about a bloke called Brian...Or, if you press it twice in quick succession, it'll play an ode to PM set to the same tune... Wed 01 Oct 2008 11:49:06 GMT+1 U11204129 159Well, it may be assonance, but let's check your drawl.House, here, rhymes with nice,Nurse,there, rhymes with Joyce,.... and mohel here and there rhymes with oil (as in '..take you, home again, Kathleen)'s nowhere near a homophone of mole's,...., so Ratty can sleep soundly.And rhymes rimes with...... ((:-))) Wed 01 Oct 2008 11:34:04 GMT+1 nikki noodle It is good to coem [(c) Mr S M] down to the Beach and relax without getting my trilby blown half a mile by the w..i..n..d.. Wed 01 Oct 2008 11:15:46 GMT+1 Fifi Argh. Anyone mind if I switch off Ewan Ures? The planner they're interviewing is as inarticulate as any I've met... not great radio! Wed 01 Oct 2008 11:15:27 GMT+1 Big Sister David: Big Sister was Baby Sister in 1976 ;o) Wed 01 Oct 2008 10:18:09 GMT+1 Perky Are you still there Stew - could I have a latte please? I need some comfort coffee to get through work today ;)Oooh, and one of those chocolate sticks to stir it with wouldn't go amiss either . . . Wed 01 Oct 2008 10:16:00 GMT+1 Stewart_M Diy I thought your post said "Drowning" bunny rabbit.But usually Igive up trying to do piccies. The spaces never coem out as I want them.Coffee anyone. I'll nip out to costbucks are starco if you want. Wed 01 Oct 2008 09:58:43 GMT+1 David_McNickle As the mole said when asked what he smelled when crawling under the ground behind another mole, "I don't smell nothing but molasses." Wed 01 Oct 2008 09:53:03 GMT+1 David_McNickle pmL 154, I already used a Mohel joke in 136. Wed 01 Oct 2008 09:51:12 GMT+1 David_McNickle If anybody wants to see what I looked like in 1976 and ?2002, Google my name and look at the entry that includes the name Al*n G*****y (7 on my list). It is about the Winchester Diaspora. All people named Big Sister need not apply. Wed 01 Oct 2008 09:41:00 GMT+1 DI_Wyman Stewart_M (144), look more like a frowning bunny rabbit!pml, don't stroke it!anyhoo, day off from RL today so can spend all day lazing on the Beach....wotz that dear? want me to do wot?'praps not, got to pot up the window boxes and tubs with Winter Pansies!But breakfast first I think....who is for Porridge?BTW, is tomorrow a Centenary Beach? Wed 01 Oct 2008 06:40:36 GMT+1 needsanewnickname Ah, it's that one, pml, and not the one about the dried apricots.What a masterstroke. Tue 30 Sep 2008 23:45:21 GMT+1 U11204129 And you can hear the next installment of the Retiring Mohel, tomorrow night at about the same time.If there is a 'tomorrow night'...Nite! Tue 30 Sep 2008 23:13:20 GMT+1 U11204129 *** Plot hint for the Horses of Instruction, everywhere.**** To rhyme with 'curse' as in the Plotnik diamond' joke. Tue 30 Sep 2008 22:15:10 GMT+1 U11204129 'They gave me a little purse.''That's all? After 40 years of being [a retiring circumciser] (shy) mohel***, a purse? A purse**** is all they give you?' Tue 30 Sep 2008 22:12:35 GMT+1 U10783173 pmL - What about the retiring circumciser? Tue 30 Sep 2008 22:01:40 GMT+1 U11204129 When he gets home, his wife says'Did they give you a leaving present?' Tue 30 Sep 2008 21:58:08 GMT+1 U11204129 The mohel is retiring, and a leaving party is arranged. Tue 30 Sep 2008 21:34:47 GMT+1 ValeryP Love the glass Stewart, you're being very creative tonight? Tue 30 Sep 2008 21:30:43 GMT+1 Stewart_M And what else does it warm apart from DIY's cockles?I thought that was what his speedo's did. Tue 30 Sep 2008 21:14:08 GMT+1 Sid Stewart - the sprout tea sounds good? Oh yes, you're right - so it does. Can't usually hear it from this far away. Tue 30 Sep 2008 21:08:08 GMT+1 Stewart_M Its supposed to be a glass. Tue 30 Sep 2008 21:03:27 GMT+1 Stewart_M *Any Left?*(__)_()_ Tue 30 Sep 2008 21:02:51 GMT+1 nikki noodle *pours* ;-p Tue 30 Sep 2008 20:53:44 GMT+1 Stewart_M Sid, if you pop some on to warm now, it wont be ready till a year come February.

Tue 30 Sep 2008 20:37:27 GMT+1 Fifi Noodle - I've overshot tea time AND Pimms o'clock and gone straight to half past plonk.* holds out glass *;o) Tue 30 Sep 2008 19:54:20 GMT+1 nikki noodle tea up!!!

Tue 30 Sep 2008 18:38:06 GMT+1 David_McNickle You want to see some slow modding, go to Open2Forums. I've been discussing Stonehenge and archaeology there. Tue 30 Sep 2008 17:11:15 GMT+1 David_McNickle pmL 135, As the Mohel said to the parents, "It won't be long now." Tue 30 Sep 2008 16:33:34 GMT+1 U11204129 Blimey, stymied again.Supposed to be on the Beach at Mablethorpe, instead in an unAmusement Arcade on the High Street.From pillar to post!!I begin to feel like a DIYman.PS I'd tell Frances-O the joke about the retiring circumciser, but, no time (at a quid for 15 mins) Tue 30 Sep 2008 12:35:55 GMT+1 Big Sister Bon voyage, Gillianian!Nice to be back with fellow froggers. It's been a hectic couple of days, and several hectic days ahead to come a bacon sarnie and some OJ to set me up for the rest of the fray. Tue 30 Sep 2008 08:19:21 GMT+1 Gillianian I'm off to Aberdeen today, for a couple of days. I'll wave to all those froggers I fly over, on the way ;o) Tue 30 Sep 2008 08:14:19 GMT+1 ValeryP Perky - I hope you took yourself straight off to the Naughty Step?? Mon 29 Sep 2008 22:32:05 GMT+1 David_McNickle Perky 129, He will, shortly. Mon 29 Sep 2008 17:13:50 GMT+1 David_McNickle I see where Ben and Jerry are thinking of making ice cream from human milk.

Mon 29 Sep 2008 14:56:24 GMT+1 lovewireless Make the most of it Sid, it will be very wet tomorrow Mon 29 Sep 2008 14:30:31 GMT+1 U10783173 Sid (125) - Put it away! Mon 29 Sep 2008 13:43:17 GMT+1 Perky Afternoon, all. I hope no-one minds, but I've invited Paddy to the beach, should he have time during his hectic PM schedule today. Can we round up some welcoming goodies for the bar? I've brought chocolate brownies and vanilla ice-cream - it's that sort of a day, I feel. Mon 29 Sep 2008 13:40:41 GMT+1 Sid It's nice out, isn't it? Mon 29 Sep 2008 13:31:14 GMT+1 Wonko Feefs - reminds me of a cartoon: two people studying some stuffed animal heads on a wall, one tells the other "I shot this one in the Trossachs." to which the other replies "No wonder his eyes are crossed!"You probably had to be there... budge up on the Naughty Step then.;o) [] Mon 29 Sep 2008 12:49:35 GMT+1 ValeryP Frances - many a time and oft was that wonderful baker's on Morrison Street frequented by us, staggering home :-)Wonder if it's still there - bl**dy roads in Embra are so impossible to negotiate these days (I shall say the word "trams" and I shall say it only once otherwise I'll seethe) that I take the park and ride, but that tends to restrict me to doing the one and only thing I went in to do. Tomorrow it's meet TD who's had about 5 months (it seems) of holiday from Uni and suddenly remembers that her drawing board/portolios/Twister etc are all still at home and she hasn't now got time to come all the way here so could I meet her halfway? I'm all for meeting folk halfway :-) Mon 29 Sep 2008 12:41:57 GMT+1 DI_Wyman Afternoon Peeps, RL in Kenilworth quietly ticking along and off to meet a fellow Frogger after work. Mon 29 Sep 2008 12:37:01 GMT+1 Fifi Wonko, wash your mouth out!(go back and read your exact words..)And I'll see you on the naughty step.;o) Mon 29 Sep 2008 12:16:30 GMT+1 UptheTrossachs I usually take sugar - but it's the caffeine I really need thanks Wonko!On a brighter note - the sun is shining in Cambuslang but the forecast was for rain.... Mon 29 Sep 2008 10:11:32 GMT+1 Wonko Vat of coffee to table 3!Milk and sugar UptheTrossachs?;o) [] Mon 29 Sep 2008 10:05:42 GMT+1 UptheTrossachs Ineedcoffee...Please Mon 29 Sep 2008 09:54:15 GMT+1 Wonko Morning all, I have to echo FF, where did that weekend go? One minute you're settling into your favourite chair with a glass of Scottish liquid in your hand after a long week at work, the next you're rubbing the sleep from your eyes and cursing Mondays for being too early in the week. No fair!I'll grill some muffins and put the coffee pot on for elevenses.;o) [] Mon 29 Sep 2008 09:41:07 GMT+1 David_McNickle pmL 102, Where in Winchester? Mon 29 Sep 2008 09:35:00 GMT+1 Fearless Fred Oh dear. Where did the w/e go? I seem to have missed in in RL, for some reason.... Mon 29 Sep 2008 08:13:24 GMT+1 needsanewnickname (7) Of course, if not riding on a camel, this reminds me of that brilliant Scots song which contains the line:Riding on a goosieJust felt like a sing-song; have done all week; have subjected the pots and pans to a few songs while cooking tonight.Yawwnn, goodnight, all. Sun 28 Sep 2008 22:51:53 GMT+1 needsanewnickname When I lived in Embra and we stayed out late, there was an all-night bakery where you could get rolls and then go home and have a feast before going to bed.Long, long ago and I don't stay out late these days, ho, hum, but your post, feefs, reminds me of that Aladdin's bakery; the wonderful smells, the guessing if there was something special we could buy for a special treat... Sun 28 Sep 2008 22:40:03 GMT+1 Stewart_M Its a bit dark over here behind the dunes. Having to try and climb over the OS map speedos lying about everywhere. Sun 28 Sep 2008 22:15:20 GMT+1 Fifi Me! I've got Beach Withdrawal Syndrome, so even without a sweet tooth Stewart I'm up for it.Fruit gums please. And maybe a walnut whip, if you can find any... Sun 28 Sep 2008 22:11:06 GMT+1 Stewart_M Who's up for the Beach's first night time sweet shop run?I'll get me torch. Sun 28 Sep 2008 22:06:10 GMT+1 Fifi Back tonight from what turned out to be nr Winchester, not nr Southampton (whoops, but at least it only took 2.5 hrs to get there!).Hey, one of my never-been-seen-before straps as well... what a coming home present THAT is.Fred (18) - I waved to Oxford from the A34, and I'm almost sure I saw you waving back.DIY - we avoided the M3 long-cut and just went A43-A34 obvious straight route, and shaved half an hour off the computer directions suggested journey. Result!I return from our all-weekend party, with a good deal of surplus wine and buns. Any takers??? Sun 28 Sep 2008 22:04:24 GMT+1
