If TM gave JC a BJ she might secure the oppositions support for her Brexit strategy.

No wonder Gary the Moderator Locked my "Guide to EGNO Warton for going Off Topic,
I've just put something in General Chat that I should have put in "What Made You
Laugh Today". I was reading the October Edition of The Railway Magazine
in the editorial part it stated that this Edition was published on XxxxxXX, 2018
The next will be on sale on XxxxxxXX, 2018. is this a sort of code. It made me laugh.

It's not a code Frank, it's a template that they should have filled-in correctly before going to print.

This morning on Flickr Alfred Fartknocker fav'd one of my photos from Tyndall 1994

Thanks mate for having a brilliant name and brightening up a dull morning in Norfolk.

If ever I needed an argument to stay in the EU that is it - we just don't have that class of name in the UK.

Chapter 13 of This Sceptred Isle written by Christopher Lee..

" The England of the late 1370s and early 1380s was leaderless, overtaxed and at war, and not very successful so. A dull war that celebrates nothing has few compensations for those at home and brings opportunity to protest that dues and poll taxes are unfair.
...and so the Peasants' Revolt failed to achieve its objectives; although it did kill, for the moment, the poll tax. But the uprisings of 1381 showed just how much the people had lost confidence in those who governed them. "

;)
Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose. :roll:

OH spotted this on Facebook this morning.
Christmas Dinner....
I have concluded that the inevitable stress of Christmas dinner is created by adverts and supermarkets....
It's a Sunday dinner for feck sake. We do it quite happily 51 weeks of the year but can we the consumers be trusted to manage by ourselves on one day of the year, apparently not!
Here goes...
1. Turkey... It's a big fecking chicken that's all, 20 minutes per lb plus 20 minutes at 180 degrees - jobs a good un! Get yourselves a meat thermometer £3 off the Internet poke it in the offending bird if it says 75 degrees or over its cooked!
2. Stuffing - regardless of what Jamie Oliver says you do NOT need 2lbs of shoulder of pork, onions breadcrumbs,pine nuts and a **** load of fresh herbs to make stuffing.... What you need is Paxo and a kettle!! If you wanna liven it up squeeze 3 sausages out of their skins and mix that in with your Paxo before cooking 😉.
3. Gravy - Jamie Oliver is copping for this one aswell....
Bisto Jamie.... All you need is Bisto!
4. Vegetables. Never mind faffing round shredding sprouts and frying them with bacon and chestnuts to make them more palatable, If you don't like them don't buy and cook the fecking things. If your family only eats frozen peas then that's good enough!
5. Roast potatoes. Yes I part boil mine then roast them in goose fat or whatever you want to use, but Aunt Bessie also does the same 😉.
6. Trimmings,Christmas pudding Mincepies and the like, whatever shop you use or do what I do bake them yourself
7. Family. Children, Feed the little blighters first separately, if they only want turkey with tomato sauce fine leave em to it, it doesn't matter. Once they are fed oh fudge them off to play with their Christmas presents so that YOU can enjoy your dinner in Peace!
Adults. Anyone that can manage to get their sorry arse to your dinner table is also capable of helping to serve up/ sort the kids out/ clear the table /wash up /dry up etc.
And Finally.....
NO ONE, And I mean no one APART FROM THE COOK IS ALLOWED TO GET pee'ed AND FALL ASLEEP BEFORE THE WASHING UP IS DONE!!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

We're away on hols at the moment, but ref the above...
There's a lovely Chinese restaurant in our little village that always opens on Christmas Day. It's fully booked and even happy to do take-always for the alternative, or more discerning palette.
The great thing is that any/all food left at 6pm, along with cooking extra is taken to a shelter to feed the needy.
Spare a thought for those as we enjoy ourselves.

Welshandy - bloomin brilliant :lol: Never have got the siege mentality to Christmas and every other Bank Holidays.
We pre-ordered our meat from the supermarket and were given a pick-up time between 0600-0800 yesterday. It was worth getting up early to have a normal quiet-ish shop. Home before the masses descended and chaos ensued!
