    That said, it’s only ever good-looking people who present news and weather, why are there never any non good-looking people in those positions?

    lol

     

    Have you watched some of the regional news programs?

    Some of them, male and female,

    look like extras from Hammer Horror films!😱

    Apparently from today the average price of a pint is £3 in England. When I started drinking pints in 1965 I paid 1s 9p. Allwoing for inflation that is now £1.63! Someone’s screwing with us! :cry:

    In 1985 a packet of cigarettes in France was 7F50 and a month’s salary was 7500F; shame it’s not the same ratio today!

    In your cutlery draw how are your knives, forks and spoons arranged from left to right? Mine are as above, but I have been in houses ( when housesitting) where they are spoons, knives and forks and some forks, spoons and knives, that seems really awkward to me. I know this question will be of great interest to most of you! :wacko:    :wacko:

    Was in the car with my son the other day and when we pulled up at the lights infront of us were 2 scooters/mopeds.

    1 had a no plate the other didn’t so a discussion was had to legality and reason.

    Best I could think of was if pedal assisted no plate required, any ideas?

    Cutlery drawer left to right serrated edge knives, forks, dessert spoons, soup spoons, separate compartment at the top for flat bladed knives, far right misc cutlery (serving spoons etc) little compartment in front small misc cutlery, teaspoons kept in a separate place! And woe betide anyone who lays the table with a mix match of cutlery – they must all match (even for just us two!) and knife blades must be facing inwards, forks straight, water glass at the top of the knife …………… – OCD? moi? never!  :whistle:

    When I grew up it was knives, forks and spoons, left to right. Now, for some reason, it’s knives, spoons and forks.

    Fruitcake – OCD? Toi? Sometimes!

    By the way, M477OKO is beige after all, no excuses, thought it was dark or rust brown.

    A guy around our way, drives his quad bike from his village up the road to ours regularly , still has an L on after several years! How long can you drive on L plates for, if forever , what’s the point of passing a test?

    I guess Sh-sh it’s been a habit since the original was a Hoover. It took us a long time to stop saying “Pull the chain” instead of saying “Flush the toilet” even after chain pull cisterns were long gone!

    VK probably most of the time, can’t help myself! Picture straightening, when not in my own home is particularly hard to resist!  :-(

    I know what you mean about picture straightening.

    Heard of a 6m² space in Paris the other day being sold for €42,000! Normally it’s not legal to rent a space under 9m², but there was 7m² in the 6th arrondissment being rented out for €500 per month and 9m² in the 16th for €842 per month, to students! In the 7m² space, the toilet was not on the same floor, fortunately.

    Personally I comment on the things that interest me and by-pass the things that don’t, leaving them for those that are interested to discuss, there’s usually something to cover all interests.

    I should be so lucky…….

    On a similar track, ladies lingerie :

    My partner decided to invest in a front fastening bra, mainly for reasons of practicality on doing and undoing. I think it looks fine and it’s certainly more practical for me to whip off asap or when required but she complains that it doesn’t do her figure justice. Ladies, do such items of ladiesware not do the chest any favours ?

    Maybe perhaps visit a really good lingerie shop specialising in such items. Not stuff that makes you feel as if your wearing armour plating!   :heart:

    Very ‘handy’ for blokes especially when time is of the essence and space is limited in the back of the Morris Marina ….
