What's on your mind?
walkingdecay: The hand pain seesms to be keyboard-related Martin, especially using "correct" hand position. I was going at it a bit in December and January.. I can't let it stop me playing keys though. I was just getting to play things that used to defeat me. Mar 30, 2017 11:53:16 GMT
walkingdecay: Are you worried about Clem? Mar 30, 2017 11:54:08 GMT
Martin: I'm not worried about nothin' no more.... :D Really enjoyed TWD1, need to purchase season 2 now!! Mar 30, 2017 12:02:37 GMT *
walkingdecay: Don't buy it mate! Free with Gold in April. Mar 30, 2017 22:26:07 GMT
Martin: Thanks Pete, that's handy! Started Telltales GoT instead. Mar 31, 2017 6:20:11 GMT *
walkingdecay: There's a strange consistency in April Fool's jokes across the papers this morning. Most have gone with claims that Donald Trump is president and Britain is leaving the EU. Apr 1, 2017 6:31:50 GMT
ocarolan: :D Apr 1, 2017 10:55:11 GMT
NikGnashers: Argh sore finger syndrome lol - trying to learn 'time in a bottle' not bad for 3 days Apr 1, 2017 13:58:23 GMT
walkingdecay: Unsurprising Manilow news, but have to repeat a description of him I heard from a BBC floor manager who'd just seen him with his shirt off: "He has this peculiar almost translucent skin tone. All in all he looked like a half-done boil-in-the bag chicken." Apr 6, 2017 11:48:27 GMT *
Martin: Nice work on the Jim Croce tune, Nik :thumbup: Apr 6, 2017 23:25:59 GMT
marieke: A nice overview of British political history (brought to you by my English teacher): and greetings from Germany! :D Apr 9, 2017 13:26:18 GMT
ocarolan: Enjoyed the vid . How's Uni going? Apr 9, 2017 22:06:19 GMT
leoroberts: Nowt wrong with that video, Marieke :) Apr 10, 2017 10:41:16 GMT
marieke: Nice of you to ask! As we not only have to watch vids like that but rather read loads of literature, Uni sometimes is a little exhausting but all in all pretty interesting :) (and probably still more relaxed than working ::) ) Apr 10, 2017 18:46:08 GMT
ocarolan: Sounds good to me . See you at Halifax! Apr 10, 2017 21:11:57 GMT
vikingblues: Why do smoke alarm batteries only start to go flat at 4 o'clock in the morning! Beep ........ beep ......... beep ...... ;-| Apr 13, 2017 7:33:35 GMT
Akquarius: Running out of space here :-( maybe I should sell a guitar or two Apr 19, 2017 7:07:05 GMT
Martin: Noooooooooooooo!!! Apr 19, 2017 7:32:17 GMT
leoroberts: For goodn ss sake, Bernd...just rent a bigger house! Apr 19, 2017 9:28:49 GMT
Akquarius: We only move in here 18 months ago :-)) but there's this D'Angelico, or better these d'Angelicos.... can't get them out of my head Apr 21, 2017 12:23:20 GMT
