  1. I confess I didn't see that, surprised he didn't wave his blurglecruncheon about!
  2. I notice it's Saturday night .... and what do Martians do on a Satuday night ??? That's right, they go to the hop !

    Possible HMRC scam!

    Dave, it's a scam. Do not click on any links in it. To get a grant you'd have to have filled in a form first!

    Grumping into the 20s

    Cockers. Well, just about any spaniel. They'll eat their own as well as any they find. And they are sneaky B's, the only time you know what they've done is when they open their mouth, and yes, their breath stinks to high heaven. I can understand why my daughter wants to keep the (year old) grandson as far from the cocker's mouth as possible.
  5. Thanks, I'd know more if I knew what bouts were!
  6. Err .... what's a Fender offset? I like Guitar porn as much as anyone else, but I have no idea what a Fender offset is. Can I say that I once held John Entwistle's Buzzard bass - lookng a tthe photo of me holding it. I have an expression to match the words "You'll not take this guitar from my warm, sweaty hand"!! ( By the way, the nice man from Sothebys did take it from my hands. I still regret not having enough money to buy it!)
  7. I find it interesting that Hannants have been featuring 3 WNW kits in their adverts in the May issues of a couple of modelling magazines. Clearing stock perhaps?

    cancelled shows

    The Avon show is also held in a local authority leisure centre, which I assume is currently closed, and SMW is only 2 or 3 weeks after the Glasgow show date. Given the caution that councils may be operating under, I think The Avon show is not secure. IPMS have been consistent in saying they can wait until August before making a decision on SMW; the Convention centre may make it for them.

    Those Lockdown Blues

    As I said, it just seemed that whenever I saw photos of film of people not being awfully compliant, it seemed to be be mostly younger people. Most old farts I know (that's me, my brothers and brother in law) are stopping in and not mixing with other people!

    Doesn't augur well for Avon in August and SMW.
  11. My all time top five singles are River Deep Mountain High, Substitute, Love will tear us apart, All along the watchtower (Hendrix) and Pretty Vacant. I don't put them in an order as I'd robably lose the will to live making my mind up. But then while I write this I am minded that Lose Yourself by Eminem is one of the best singles I’ve heard for a long time, and could make a claim on one of these places. As is Puff Daddy’s version of Kashmir. In fact, if Led Zeppelin had released Kashmir as a single, I think it would be an immovable feature in my top 5. Oh, Kylie's Can't get you out of my head - I'll stop now.
  12. Love will tear us apart is in my top 5 singles of all time. it won't ever move out of that. Absolutely magnificent song.

    Those Lockdown Blues

    Is it me, or have the people who have been, shall we say, less compliant with lockdown and social distancing been mainly people under 40? I'm not talking about over the last weekend, but in the 6 or 7 weeks from 23rd March. Whenever I've watched the news on tv, the people they've shown have tended to be younger people. Incidentally, has anyone else simply stopped watching the news, or any programme on tv about the virus, as I have? I'm simply both fed up and bored with it all.
  14. People keep asking: "Is the Corona virus REALLY all that serious?" Listen, the churches and casinos are closed. When heaven and hell agree on the same thing, it's probably pretty serious. You know those car commercials where there's only one vehicle on the road? Doesn't seem so unrealistic these days. Never in a million years could I have imagined I would go up to a bank teller wearing a mask and ask for money!!
