NewDave: And like a sinner before the gates of heaven I'll come crawling on back to you...... Feb 8, 2021 9:42:09 GMT
curmudgeon: We had our jabs yesterday - Hands up everyone else who has had their jab - no not that arm - use the arm that doesn't hurt! Feb 14, 2021 12:32:04 GMT
curmudgeon: Word for the day ....meniscus! Feb 14, 2021 12:32:29 GMT
martinrowe: Good on you, curmudgeon Feb 14, 2021 13:21:13 GMT
scorpiodog: Yep. Had my first one. Second in 12 weeks. Will it make any difference? That largely depends on Superthatch and his minions. One thing for sure, once you give a politician power, it takes for ever for him to relinquish his authority. Lockdown continues. Feb 15, 2021 1:57:02 GMT
NewDave: On Tipping Point today: Q: The Suffolk Punch is a breed of which equine animal? A: A tiger. Feb 16, 2021 16:16:37 GMT *
curmudgeon: What is tipping point, and tell us more about these East Anglian tigers? Feb 16, 2021 19:58:12 GMT
NewDave: Tipping Point is a quiz show. The East Anglian tigers exist only in the mind of a contestant. That one will probably be in the next issue of Private Eye. The correct answer was, perhaps unsurprisingly, a horse. Feb 17, 2021 1:32:31 GMT *
NewDave: Mind you, another contestant was asked to give the correct name for a person who cares for goats and answered shepherd. I watch it for the drama. Feb 17, 2021 1:34:21 GMT *
NewDave: John Wick on the telly, a guitar and a glass of whiskey. It's a good night tonight. Feb 19, 2021 22:18:43 GMT
Martin: :D Feb 20, 2021 9:06:08 GMT
curmudgeon: Bulb.co.uk . Is Terry an appropriate name for a unicorn? Just asking. Feb 20, 2021 22:47:06 GMT
martinrowe: If you're introducing him formally then it's probably best to use Title and Surname as well. Context is everything. Feb 22, 2021 11:53:29 GMT
NewDave: Some excellent work on the Word Association thread. Well played gentlemen. Feb 24, 2021 12:10:05 GMT
scorpiodog: I don't do the word association thingy, but I have just looked and am deeply impressed by the cleverness that exudes from the thread. My hat is off to you, Gentlemen (of any gender). :topper: Feb 24, 2021 12:35:15 GMT
Onechordtrick: Just realised it’s over a year since I last went into the office. Hope I didn’t leave anything in the fridge. Feb 26, 2021 17:20:25 GMT
NewDave: I once found a fruit corner that was more than 4 years old at the back of my fridge. I opened it to see if I had created life. It looked fine so I ate it. Feb 27, 2021 8:56:30 GMT *
NewDave: Re-watching The Graduate and the cast are all very watchable but my God the plot is a load of twaddle. Feb 27, 2021 23:00:47 GMT
andrewjw: Are you saying you have never fancied an older woman?! :D Feb 28, 2021 15:22:51 GMT
scorpiodog: There aren't that many older women left any more. Mar 1, 2021 10:15:56 GMT
