    Dear Diary

    When I lived & cycled in London, I would stop off at one of the various Galleries/Museums on the way home at least once a week, if I had a half day.

    A couple of years ago I was working in Theatre on a Friday evening, on the emergency list, and the Muslim surgeon asked for some swabs to pack the wound. We all thought something bad had happened, especially when he left the table and descrubbed. We thought he was going to ring the consultant for advice. When he returned 15mins later, the scrub nurse asked him "What did he say?" Surgeon replied "Who?" Scrub nurse "Mr. So-&-So (the consultant)" Surgeon "Oh, I didn't ring him, it's Friday, I had to do my prayers."

    You will not get a 2018 General Election now, constitutionally we need 4 weeks notice at least, therefore it will be January, or more likely, February 14 by the time they get their puddendahs in order.

    Saw the highlights on Quest, it really did look wet. Yet a couple of miles south, Gigg Lane looked dry as a bone(ish).
  10. She is 10. Yes, she lives near, about a mile, but if I don't get an invite from her Mother, I am not allowed near her house. I see my Daughter every Saturday, last weekend she wasn't ready when I went to pick her up (still in Nightie), so I had to stand outside in the cold for 10 mins, until her Mother took sympathy on me. Then when she couldn't find her purse to give my Daughter some pocket money, I was accused of stealing her purse.

    Rant thread

    Absolutely amazing. The block of flats where I live has had a dodgy front door latch since before I moved in 18 months ago. The management company got round to changing the lock last week, but I didn't get a key. I've had to shoulder charge my way in, or leave the door on a latch every time I have gone out. I have just rang the company, and they have sent the new key (Singular) to my landlord, based in France. What use is that. I now have to traipse over to Eastbourne to get the new key!

    After the successful American War of Independence, the 1783 Treaty of Paris recognized the independence of the newly formed United States and set the terms of peace, ceding British North American territories south of the Great Lakes to the new country.[54] The American war of independence also caused a large out-migration of Loyalists the settlers who had fought against American independence. Many moved to Canada, particularly Atlantic Canada, where their arrival changed the demographic distribution of the existing territories. New Brunswick was in turn split from Nova Scotia as part of a reorganization of Loyalist settlements in the Maritimes which led to the incorporation of Saint John, New Brunswick to become Canada's first city.[55] To accommodate the influx of English-speaking Loyalists in Central Canada, the Constitutional Act of 1791 divided the province of Canada into French-speaking Lower Canada (later Quebec) and English-speaking Upper Canada (later Ontario), granting each its own elected legislative assembly.[56] C&P Wikipedia

    Just as well, as we still know how to build Guillotines in Europe, Is this after the Quebec act of 1774 which re-established the French language in Canada, or the 1783 Treaty of Paris, which more or less established Ontario, and nothing to do with the Louisiana gift.

    You've not really been following my posts for the last 3 months. Ah, now we're back to the greedy Capitalist Society that was quoted on other pages.
