Went there in 2007, one of the most relaxing holidays we've had.

Yes, we were in Oludeniz last May, between the bombings in Istanbul, and the attempted Coup. Even so, we had a great week for Marlons wedding (My ex's cousin who is in a dance troupe who were 2nd on Britains got Talent)

Tinned anchovies.

I had an ancestor (a great-uncle, I think), who used to put salt on his tinned anchovies. I'm surprised he didn't shrivel up.

I just eat them straight from the tin.

I have resurrected this thread because I have just fixed something else with a cable tie. 

Brilliant invention.

The feel of pulling on a pair of brand new socks. Very much not the same as freshly-washed socks.

You first shave with a fresh blade, when you think to yourself "I should have got rid of the old scrapey one ages ago!"

Lion Midget Gems, food of the gods

Yes! I’m also sick of people telling me that all makes of midget gems are the same, the black midget gems HAVE to be liquorice flavour, nothing else will do.

Hot days in the business parts of London. The views are absolutely lovely.

No, definitely not. Having lived in London for 20 years, I hated London in the heat. It is so much better with a sea view and a 30 second walk to the beach.

Although, I used to work at Charing Cross hospital & the theatres there are up on the 14th floor, the planes landing at Heathrow used the Hospital as a sighting beacon, & used to pass directly overhead, theatre 7 (Neurosurgery) was THE place to be to watch them landing. Passed many a bored hour staring out at the flight paths. ? Happy daze.

Agreed. Assume Ckn is being whisked around in a fancy NHS limo, not getting on the tube. I've got the week off this week and am thanking all the gods for not having to travel about in central London all week.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Well, he is management.

And before ckn bans me again, anybody who works in the NHS & doesn't get their hands dirty by dealing with patients, are managers.

Those who can, do. Those who can't, manage. Old Theatre saying.

Modern forum folk can’t even tell the hidden context that I’m enjoying the lovely young ladies in their summer City wear. I despair for you all ?

It’s quite easy to go off certain folk.

You've "gone off" me a couple of times, I don't mean to call offence, sir.

The small button on the dashboard of my car with the letters AC 

I'd had the car two years before I realised AC stood for air-conditioning, what a plonker!

Have you considered packing in cycling?
