Yes, try looking it up even if you are lazy. What are we? Your research team? Try Google.


Bri, you posted about not asking a question right after I had written several paragraphs, one of them containing a question. Just because it isn't the end, doesn't mean it isn't in there. Just saying.  :-* :-*

The last should end with a ?

With a stealthy tread I trod my way back to the podium and snuck in an almost 2am win.

Hey :)

Let's see, you probably know me as Silt or Pale or ...,  gawd there been a few :P

Nice to see you sailing in these waters.

Erm, Pale seems to resonate, but I can't be sure. Years have gone by and some marbles have fallen thru a hole in the bag.  ;D

Sorry for the late reply Deb. RL always interferes when we least want it to.

I knew this one would cause problems.
I put the breaks in so you could maybe visualise the pendulum sweep of the mell as it arcs thru the air.
By the way, a mell is what you over the ponders call a sledgehammer.
When we set girders in the roadways that follow the coalfaces as they advanced, we supported the roof with an arch girder, and two legs underneath.
These were connected by plates of steel that had to be bolted together.
Sometimes to ease the pressure on the girders, thereby making the roof settle less quickly, wellies or leg extensions had to be hammered onto the leg-ends.
Hence the BONGGG sound.
And it was like the death bell knell.

Hope that explains it a bit more.
But of course, if I'd worded it better, there'd be no reason to need the above. para. Ayy?  :)

Blame it on the Romans. I mean what have the Romans ever done for us?

Since being with Skinny, I only ever see one bird.  ;D ;D

Not here in Nottsland. There's loads come into our garden. But we put food and water out for them. Especially in Winter. Don't you?

Who is the guilty party?

It's usually you  ;D

Ahem. I beg to differ. The person you're referring to was someone else.
"I am Gand Granda the White. And I come to you now at the turn of the tide."

I've also never broken any rules. Have I?
