  • I've got a terrific hobby that any of you can try. It's fun and it's totally free. You get to give big brother a kicking at the same time. This morning I thought I'd start my day by searching for saddles and saddlebags in Google. Hardly any time ha…
  • All children get free education in the UK. It can start when a child is 4 years old as the starting date is the year in which the child would be 5. Leaving school is more complex these days. You can leave school age 16 but only if you are going imme…
  • Democracy is failing both our countries Mike. It's disturbing. Things shouldn't be like this. Where the hell is the middle ground? Petty minded bloody kids, the most of them.
  • You're too quiet again Mike. What's up?
  • Yes Ken, thanks, but surely the moon MUST be round. The recent red moon convinced me it could only be Edam. (No, you're not getting a smiley face. I'm serious).
  • We should all be hanged. :-j What do you make of the resignations today of 7 MP's from Corbyn's leftist Labour Party?
  • Thanks Sue. They have flown from central Africa, crossed the Sahara and the Mediteranean, traversed mainland Europe and the English Channel and then flown hundreds of miles further north to get here ....... all to bring up their kids ..... and then …
  • You probably missed a recent clip of the following on TV news. A British invention designed to clean up space. https://www.theverge.com/2018/9/19/17878218/space-junk-remove-debris-net-harpoon-collisions A sure fire way to instigate one of my rants i…
  • We have a land-line phone but I rarely use it either. Guess I'm just not keen on phones, but agree that if they are used as intended they are extremely useful. I don't do "like" or "share" on anything people post on FB. They are so insincere and imp…
  • Dear Richard, I must take issue with your phrase "that balloon Donald Trump" as balloons don't have hair. Oops. My mistake. Your description is perfectlty accurate. Yours faithfully, Vladimir Putin. ps, I loved your ditty and Aldous Huxley picture o…
  • Cell phones! I've got one. I've used it once. I phoned Liz to make sure it was working. "Hello?" she answered. "Thanks" I replied. Job done. On a quiz show (The Chase) a couple of days ago one question was " What is the average number of times a sma…
  • If someone was to post Sue's Aldous Huxley's quote on Facebook, do you think that person should include the following ditty? :) Mirror, mirror on the wall. Do you resemble this at all? Hold your hand up if indeed ya, Get all your "news" from Social …
  • How about this one from Mr.Glasow again. You cannot get more current than this. :-j One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency. "We're (maybe) going to build a wall". ;))
  • Ha! Chew on this one Ken. I used it in an email to Sue. She shares our opinions on social media and the odd politician. ;) Orwell had this to say,"’You are free to be a drunkard, an idler, a coward, a backbiter, a fornicator; but you are not free …
  • Not keen on any of the remainder.
  • I have #1041 down to just 12 in the waste. Could be winnable. Quickest edit ever. Yes it has been won.
  • Making nothing of this bunch so far Larry. Already on the second run through.
  • No. Don't worry about it. Only menbers can see our posts. Over the years some of us have voiced much stronger opinions here. You are amongst friends. If you look up to the top right of this screen you will see a tab that looks like a handbag. There …
  • An interesting and prophetic man. The only fault I can find with his quote is the spelling of "favor". We can blame Mr.Spellchecker for that too. :) He was born in England in a place called Godalming. Remarkably close to Godalmi ghty! :) I will emai…
  • Sue, I've just noticed further up this page I called you Sam. Apologies. I've no idea who Sam is. At least it's a three letter abreviation that starts with an S. It's also got a vowel in it. I'm struggling now. :D
  • Ha! How true ........... How depressingly true. How about this one for Mr.Twitter himself regarding global warming? "Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored".
  • What I hate most about Facebook is the easy by which anyone, even those who have had a lobotomy, can post something that is accepted as factual, and is shared and shared by legions of their equally uninformed and moronic "friends". It's a Fake News …
  • Agreed. Fancy a real challenge? Try Unlimited #10. I thought it was going to beat me, but no. All winnable so far.
  • Can't say I'm keen on Robie. Too random for my liking. I thouht you didn't want to play any games where you can't move groups. I just dropped in here to say that 1-8 Unlimiteds are winnable. I'm going to stick to it for some time I think. I enjoy p…
  • Have a look at Unlimited Larry. Looks very promising. #1 is winnable and so is #2. The latter took some effort. Major clue ..... There is a 9S in column two that has to go onto a 10S in column six. Do not put an 8S onto it from the stock.
  • Thanks for the link Sam. I'll look into it soonish. I spend under a minute a week in FB. It seems to be shoulder deep with people who have nothing of any importance to say but delight in telling everyone all about it anyway. Cynic? Me? How dare you…
  • Hell no Sue! Just an addict. I always try to get involved when Thomas or Gregg post Betas. We attempt to iron out any gliches etc at that stage so that they are pretty perfect when they are actually released. Been playing PGS since Noah was a boy. I…
  • Ken .... That wasn't an easy game. I had trouble with it too. If it's any consolation, after I'd decided on the partial position for you, I left it open whilst I uploaded it. On returning to my PC it was still there and I decidedplay it to completio…
  • A bit too easy perhaps? Suggest you continue playing it if you want and I'll look for something a bit more challenging. That will be later today. It's well past midnight here.
