  1. It was reported back in November that the sea was undermining that part. The cracks inside (see link below) should have been enough to warrant some prompt action. https://www.advertiserandtimes.co.uk/hurst-castle-storm
  2. I've not read it either, but I remember looking at the pictures.
  3. Leon Spinks - pugilist.
  4. That's a typo, not a spelling error. If you want bad typing on the BBC, turn on the subtitles when you're watching the news, some of the howlers on there are funnier than most of their comedy.
  5. Modern fabrics are far more effective than the traditional old stuff like wool or cotton. Wool, cotton or linen, it doesn't matter, none of them wick away moisture like modern fabrics do. I've got a "Sub Zero" set of long johns and long sleeved vest - it feels clingy and tight when you put it on and you think there's no way this is going to keep me warm - but if you've not left the house five minutes later there's a danger you'll be passing out from heatstroke. I tend to wear a modern base layer, (not always the Sub Zero ), normal clothes over that and a one piece suit - never ignore
  6. 3kg of Plaster of Paris and a new autograph book?
  7. It's not a waste if it prevents your suffering. No water meter here yet. There is a leak out in the road, it's been running for over two weeks, twice now there's been a few vans crowded around the site, but no fix yet. The first time the vans were there the largest one was parked right on top of the leak - I wonder if they had trouble finding it.
  8. Next time, run cold tap water over the onion for a few seconds before cutting it.
  9. Catcott Lows 31/12/08 Rime frost. It was so damned cold: we drove into the car park and within seconds a Robin was perched on the bonnet of the car eating warmed up Seagull poo.
  10. This is probably a Chesters tree.
  11. It's my wife's birthday soon and she's been leaving jewellery catalogues all over the house. So I've bought her a magazine rack. My mate's Mrs. left him last Thursday, she said she was going out for a pint of milk and never came back! I asked him how he was coping and he said, "Not too bad, I've been using that powdered stuff." The wife said if you're bored why don’t you make a bird table? Now she’s kicking off because I put her in fifth place.
  12. Can I use my new keyboard yet, or would someone perhaps like to borrow it?
  13. Pigeons will do it all year, and go on to produce progeny: they're just about the only bird species that does that successfully on a regular basis.

  15. I don't really do binge any more: I remember puking after my first binge of jelly, ice cream and trifle at my Uncle Dick's wedding in 1955, I don't know why he was called Dick, his name was Clifford, (but my Auntie Jean always had a smile on her face). Further binges followed in the 60s and 70s with an array of very different consumables far removed from jelly and ice cream. The last time I got truly hammered was at my Dad's funeral, Christmas Eve 1975, I do remember that there was no vino left for Xmas day cos I'd already drunk it all. I daren't eat too much either, I'm on a p
  16. I was naked when I met the postman at the front door this morning. I don't know what surprised him most, that I was naked, or that I knew where he lived. I've been told that a good way of letting go of your anger towards other people is to write letters to those you hate and then burn them. I've done that, but do I have to keep the letters? After finding 5 Mars, 3 Snickers, a Galaxy and a Twix in this Celebrations box, I'm starting to think I'm not cut out to be a Bounty hunter. Boss: "This is the third time you have been late for work this week. You know what this means, don't
  17. I wouldn't waste too much time looking through the TV schedule, it's all crap at this time of year. We don't even bother with a fake tree any more, neither do we have cards strung up around the place, no decorations either nowadays, it's just another day to get through. There's not a turkey or a mince pie to be found here, a tube of Pringles and a bag of pistachios is the full extent of our edible celebrations. It will be over soon enough though, and we can all get back to our new Covid normal. Has anyone seen my
  18. It's a long time ago, so exact details are sketchy in my memory, but I do remember that the first couple of times I used it (in known swims) my results were better than expected, more bites sooner and more fish caught as a result, and I just carried on using it as an additive to my groundbait mix. I only used about 5mm in a half pint of water to mix the groundbait: (groundbait just damp enough to hold together when compressed in the end of the feeder).
  19. Bulk buy and link several together.
  20. There's only you talking about Penis rings. I know you know a Waist Expander when you see one, they could have been invented for you.
  21. I used to use "Ace Worm Extract." I used to mix it in small quantities into the groundbait that I used to plug an open ended feeder. I always felt it was worthwhile.
  22. I'm ready for Christmas. How about you Chesters? Have you got the Sprouts on yet?
