So type 2 diabetics are...

just greedy?

Is this the sub text?

RE: Worst cat ever

Re sudden cat attacks while stoking, probably a static shock was given to the cat. I do that to our cat, sometimes by accident.

Singapore Grand Prix

Listening to the drivers talking about ultra softs and hyper softs and just waiting for a team manager to break ranks and go with the fluffy kittens.

RE: Straplines

McDonald's............where the screaming stops


Annoying, aren't they?

So let's reinvent a few.......

Lloyds Bank.......................shi**ing on your beach

RE: Mamma Mia - I don`t get it?

Summer Holiday for the prosecco generation.

Oh, and don't the ladies go a bundle on films in which men show their feelings?

Freeview failing during World Cup

Freeview just stuttered to a halt again during the Denmark/ Croatia penalties.

It is a very hit and miss service lately.

Signal strength and quality were 100% each earlier today.

Not happy and who do you complain to?

RE: Your signature is requested

But it's Tom Watson, the same who swallowed all Nick's twaddle.

Your exposure to radiation from your mobile phone clamped to your head over the years is probably as bad. But it doesn't stop us giving phones to kids whose skullsmand brains are still developing.

If it was not for Tom Watson being involved.......

Acid Bitch only gets 12 years

Our criminal justice system is a pathetic joke.

Doesn't this mean she'll be out in 8 or less?

RE: Royal Wedding

I think we should have had free Jaffa Cakes  ☺

Latest 'gypsy' scam

Pretending to be deaf students and offering to sell expensive (30 euro) poor quality photocopy drawings door to door. At least you knew where you were with heather and clothes pegs.

Just turned one away this afternoon in the Redcar area.

OK if you want expensive naff art but perhaps warn those who may be taken in.

And about as deaf as a hungry barn owl given the way she turned and glowered at me when I spoke to my neighbour and said it's a scam.

Not right considering they're targetting areas where retired people live. 

Now, back to the BBQ.

RE: [VIDEO] Cover Versions (Beware - Old Fogey Music)

Murdering the a good way ☺

RE: Lord of the Rings coming to Amazon

For heaven's sake why???

How can you top Peter Jackson's epics, unless this is a spin off?

RE: Stephen Hawking

Hopefully, he is now in a place climbing trees and having his awkward questions answered, or at least being pointed in the right direction, along with 'Zak' and 'Bert'.

RE: Shortbread Porn

It was April 2000 and we stayed with the McGiilivrays to whom Page sold back the house as their ancestor had built it originally as a shooting lodge. It was very comfortable inside and had the most stunning views across Loch Ness. Apart from people gawping from the road, I dont know why Page sold it. I understand he spent very little on it.

It was later I told my wife its history and why Page had bought it.

Someone will get the plot as a great project.

Shortbread Porn

How many more of your missuses have been watching the 18th century Scottish Highlands shortbread sex romp that is Outlander? 

My missus loves it and I can see I'll be dragged along to the land of the midge  afore long.

But fair play, I did take her to stay at Jimmy Page's old house at Loch Ness. 

Where we did our version of the shortbread thing 😨

RE: [VIDEO] The Floppotron

I like it but I'm not 100% sure what I'm looking at 😮

RE: Old Grey Whistle Test

They said Moody Blues albums should have come with free knicker elastic, such was their effect in bedsit land

I'd be careful if I were you 😉

RE: Winter Olympics 2018

Watching the 2 man bob reminded me of a pantomime horse which got me thinking whether the Brits would do it for a lark and to Mozart's A Musical Joke?  

RE: Britain's Giant Airship

Didn't the Hindenburg have a smoking deck?

Love to have seen one mooring at the Empire State building but I wouldn't have been so keen to alight from the ship down the steps.

RE: Old Grey Whistle Test

Three prog progs to prog.

Not often you can say that.

Can I wear my flares, can I?


Got an iPhone and feel ripped off

So Apple has infected older phones and they run slow and shut down.

Guess this could be it's emissions scandal.

Not satisfied at the price of  it's products.....they had to milk it.

If what they did is to help customers, why not roll it out across all devices.

Merry Christmas!

RE: Any good remedies

Merry Christmas Ella.

My remedy is similar to skirpy but instead of ginger, 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped add a spoonful of honey and a glug of scotch. This also deters vampires!

RE: [VIDEO] The Grand Tour

So there's Jezza  and Robert Downey Jr., But who' the porker with the short grey hair? Is it the Galloping Gourmet ? or a not so hairy biker ??!!

RE: VW Exec jailed for 7 years

When are we going to start jailing more bankers? What happened to the pigs who were stripping small businesses and living the high life on the proceeds?

RE: Speaker locations

Actually, not true that the wider apart the better the stereo. Remember, stereo doesn't mean 2 it derives from the Greek ' solid' and the aim is to recreate a 3d representation of the music being played.

This aim has now become less important given the proliferation of 5.1 and 7.1 sound systems to handle movie mixes.

But for good stereo, you should be roughly at one corner of an equilateral triangle for a good sweet spot.

Subject, of course, to SWMBO.

Home Bargains Echo style speaker under £50

Not picked it up to see how heavy it is and how chunky the speaker is but the price looks interesting and it apparently works with Alexa, Spotify etc.,

This also connects by bluetooth and it has a built in rechargeable battery so you can take it around with you.

Tony Hall we are living in a golden age for television-discuss

In a recent speech this was his claim.

I know it will depend on when you were born and when you watched most of your telly, but is he right?
