What's on your mind?
minorkey: I watched the senior snooker quarter finals today. Was so good to see Dennis Taylor playing again! May 7, 2021 16:16:14 GMT
jangarrack: just seen a beautiful woodpecker hammering away in the tree in our front garden. The first woodpecker I have ever seen. May 7, 2021 19:04:11 GMT
NewDave: Lucky you. I've never seen one in the wild. May 7, 2021 19:07:01 GMT
minorkey: Nice. Used to see quite a few when I livedun Staffordshire. Not so many up here
May 7, 2021 20:52:39 GMT
walkingdecay: Depends on which part of Staffordshire. Up Stoke way all birds look like pigeons because they're covered in kaolin, Stone and Burton way like sparrows because of the breweries, Huntington blackbirds because of the fallout from the pits. May 8, 2021 13:32:33 GMT
minorkey: I was in south staffs, specifically Codsall
May 9, 2021 19:33:24 GMT
walkingdecay: Ah, I know it well. I'm at the Watling Street end of the Chase. Looking at moving either up the road to Cannock or maybe somewhere like Mow Cop. May 10, 2021 7:39:45 GMT
walkingdecay: Poor kids who will have to start kissing their grannies again with the lifting of covid restrictions. May 10, 2021 7:42:25 GMT *
scorpiodog: Is that a euphemism, Pete? May 10, 2021 9:41:18 GMT
curmudgeon: Or maybe a "ewwww" phemism? May 10, 2021 10:51:43 GMT
minorkey: Ah Watling Street, the old Roman Road
May 10, 2021 12:03:19 GMT
walkingdecay: Euphemism...Euphemism...Ah yes, the tendency to become attracted to and engage in auto-erotic activity with euphoniums. See also Sousa, John Philip; Savile, Jimmy; Tuba, Tubby The. May 10, 2021 23:57:45 GMT *
minorkey: :sid: May 11, 2021 7:19:51 GMT
Onechordtrick: The Golden Fleece on Watling Street used to be my Friday night haunt in my youth May 11, 2021 7:57:48 GMT
minorkey: Never been in the golden fleece. Was never much of a pub goer
May 11, 2021 9:27:33 GMT
curmudgeon: Is broccoli on a rockery a mockery? May 13, 2021 17:55:15 GMT
ocarolan: Is lettuce a fetish or just wettish? May 13, 2021 21:41:15 GMT
scorpiodog: Is an orange... orange? May 14, 2021 10:33:52 GMT
jangarrack: Is an orange... orange? I would think so.... isn't that why they're called oranges, a bit like why hands are called hands because they're so handy....and frets make me fret May 14, 2021 11:27:29 GMT *
martinrowe: What about lemons? May 14, 2021 14:42:06 GMT
