To be fair, he lives in Lincolnshire. He has to post his replies to the railway station. Then the telepgraph office converts it to e-mail.

They have railways and telegraphs in Lincs? B)

Whilst working, I regularly walk to my van and wonder what it is I want out of it by the time I get there.

And I haven't reached 50 yet. :(


Bloody liar!

When filling in your date of birth on a website and you have to scroll for some time through the drop down box before you reach the correct year.


I rest my case. ;)

If you remember when Pet Shop Boys - It's a Sin was number one, that was when I was born.


I remember that, but I was only six when that was number one.

When I was born, Barbra Streisand was at number one with "Woman In Love".

However, someone I've been seeing recently was born when The Shadows were at number one with "Kon-Tiki". So if you remember that then it's a sign you are old enough for me. ;)

He's the spirit of a boy as young as you, my dear, and then some! :lol:

And I have no idea as to how rich he his. I've never asked, have no intention of doing so, and insist on paying half of everything. :)

Secret Love - Doris Day
:D

I think it's a very under-rated song. It would make a jazz chanteuse classic.

As long as it's not me dad then it's ok!

And paying half is something a friend I was catching up with over food tonight insisted on too. I didn't mind that's what she wanted.

It might be... was that song number one when your dad was born? If it was, and it is your dad, don't worry, I'll look after him properly! :lol:

Not sure why anyone would object to going 50/50 over a bill. Unless the other person quaffed a load of vintage champers or summat.

But there's another sign you're getting old (or are just very old fashioned and sexist)... when you can't handle a woman paying her share of the bill.

It's a sign I don't go out much! It was more splitting it over two cards which was new to me.

I was born before the charts were invented.
And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death

Incidentally, just because you've illegally tapped into Lincolnshire's street light doesn't mean that the electricity itself is yellow.

Driving down the M5 and looking at a caravan being towed and thinking, that's a nice caravan.

In my case it's seeing trendy 20 year old's wandering round wearing "classic" replica England Ond Day Cricket gear from the 1992 World Cup and 1994/95 Ashes tour. I have the originals from Hogger sports and the one with the WSC logo cos I wuz there...

That and seeing Bonnie Tyler belting out "holding out for a hero" at Wales v New Zealand, Millenium stadium approx 2005 IIRC :(

I have another 17 odd years I hope before I need a - private - rest home.... :(

I am an oil trader and successful at that but, but marketing, finance, business management, human resources etc are not my strengths

Being an outsider, it is easiest to see what is wrong with the sport. It's a fantastic sport that has been undersold and under-marketed  because people who run it probably want to keep it the way it is
