  1. Usually get those on a Tuesday. Loft insulation scheme Fridays. Occasionally amazon on a Thursday Free boiler check and install on alternate Mondays and Wednesdays. Switch energy/insurance/life cover/funeral plan on the other alternate Mondays and Wednesdays. I no longer answer the phone unless a named person comes up on the handset or i am expecting a call from a medical person.( they tend to use withheld numbers). I feel really sorry for my answer machine it only ever gets to talk to other automated callers. I am sure it is getting depressed...๐Ÿฅบ
  2. Don't bother asp the forecast is for heavy showers for the next few days. Cold rain on a bald head is not fun. Although it IS supposed to make you more attractive to the opposite sex.( although having muscles like a Greek god and an abdomen that looks like you could grate melons on helps as well.).....๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ Failing that a few milllion in the bank is the next best thing....
  3. i have a mushroom and some darning needles if that helps...๐Ÿคญ
  4. Even worse than i thought. Never could get the hang of these physics calculations. Metre per second to miles per hour or is it metres per second squared. About the only thing i do remember is that acceleration due to gravity on the earth is 9.81 metres per second or per second squared whichever it is. not really something i would use in every day life. just basic adding up and take away with the odd bit of multiplication thrown in and occasional division was what i was taught in school when i were a lad. These days they have Chinese and Indian take aways. No wonder kids are str
  5. If they have to furlough staff such as receptionists then yes they are entitled to assistance. provided the said staff were on furlough on less money than they would get if they were working. I would be surprised if any health care staff were on furlough though.
  6. you have to wonder at the intelligence, or lack thereof, that leaping off a 200ft cliff into the sea not knowing how deep the water is. not that it matter from that height it could 200ft deep but it will still hurt if you get into a belly flop situation. from that height you would be close to 20 miles an hour on contact with the water. or sand depending if the tide was in or out. (i think)..๐Ÿค”
  7. if it is owt like my surgery you have to go online and get assessed by a triage nurse who will then probably tell you to call the NHS helpline, they will then assess you and tell you to call your GP you then go back online and go through the whole rigmarole again until either you die of whatever you have or you get better. what amazes me is all those people who would come up with any illness as an excuse to get off work are now complaining that they want to go to work again....๐Ÿคญ
  8. i had the flu jab, not that it stops you getting it but it does help when you do...๐Ÿคง
  9. There is no cure for cynicism. Salt by the pinch is said to help alleviate some of the symptoms but i am a bit sceptical about that. How much is meant by a pinch? if you have small thin fingers then it will not be much. If you have hands like a shovel it could be quite a large amount. i have checked with various scientific sources and standards agencies , but so far none of them have anything on salt pinch measurement. Seems like there is no standard for a pinch of salt as yet.no doubt some bright academical will secure government funding to do research into it and com

    TV ?

    "thers trouble ath mill" sorry that was the Spanish inquisition sketch that popped into my mind again. Never really got into brass. no idea why maybe it was the cast or maybe the characters.

    Did they ever Exorcise Martha Longhursts ghost?
  12. On a bit of a slight tangent it is amazing that all the "racist" type post that were aimed at the "leave" voters or the "remain" voters during the brexit years now seem to be aimed at the "gov". I refer to the "x number of migrants land on beach daily" type ones that crop up on faceache on a regular basis. amuses me no end when i see them. quite a few are purporting to be by a certain Mr Farage, who seems to be flouting government advice in travelling to various parts of the coast in time to catch them arriving. I do wonder how he knows.......๐Ÿค”
  13. Just had a quick look on flight tracker. At the time of posting 0625. there are 7 aircraft in the air from the US. 2 american airlines. 3 untited jets.1 delta airlines and 1 virgin atlantic. all appear to be passenger planes heading for either frankfurt or london, Although one says it is flying between eugene and phoenix. That is just the ones between lands end and Calais up as far as Cambridge on the map. That is flights from the US not looked to see if there are any to the US.

    Much preferred one man and his dog with Phil Drabble.
  15. it is usually the amazon prime will be continued and some odd sum of money will be taken from your account that i get press 1 to opt out. never bother as i do not have an amazon prime account either free or paid for. Still not heard from "dave" at microsoft technical department yet, might have to make a few enquiries t see if he is still working there...๐Ÿ”Ž...๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ
  16. How many politicians are over sixty or close to that not to mention the house of lords..๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ
  17. ๐Ÿค”......๐Ÿ˜ฏ..........๐Ÿคซ I have a kindle thingy with alexa built in. Never use it for anything but an ereader. Have the alexa turned off and only connect to the internet with it about once a fortnight to check if there are any updates. To be honest it only gets used for about an hour a night to read before i go to sleep or at least try to go to sleep.
  18. has anybody looked for such a thing?.......๐Ÿง
  19. get about three of those a week. i just say hello once and wait for the automated thing to hang up. my thinking is that it must be costing them money to call me even if it is just few pence per call.
  20. So basically kill of the weak....๐Ÿคจ
  21. I always remember Charlie Spavins fish stall. my gran used to get her fish from there on a Saturday and if i was with her bought me some cockles or shrimps in a pot. "fresh fish, alive and wriggling" was the one phrase i always remember him shouting.
  22. Does make you wonder if we need to have mp's in the houses of parliament. if they can all work from home then think of the savings in travel exes etc....๐Ÿค”
  23. went into town about a week ago and heard what i thought was a lawnmower on helium. turned out to be some guy on a motorised pedal cycle. pity there were no police about as he would have been fined for no road tax,no insurance, no mot, no number plate oh and no lights. he had what looked like a normal pedal cycle with a possibly fifty cc motor attached. one of those used in model aircraft size. all very well but even a small motor like that makes it a motor cycle and so subject to all the road rules associated with it. (oh forgot he would probably get done for not wearing a helmet as
