    If I asked for a pint of Cravendale I'd expect it to be a guest beer in a pub in Gunnerside, or Leyburn or somewhere!:D:D:D:D:D

    Wifey has made sure it will be recorded even though she should be here to watch it.
    Apparently he planned the whole thing himself, down to the last second. and there will ne no eulogy.
    Also has decreed that at the end the buglers will play "Action stations". To put things back to normal.
    ;)
    When at school in the Air Cadets, one of our masters, "Bulby" Evans, (senior ex-RAF), died and we had his funeral service in the chapel.
    We, in the continuity drill squad, were given time off lessons to learn the "Reverse Arms" drill.
    Very interesting and moving. and looked so much better with the old SMLE.
    But once all over, we sloped arms normally and marched off at normal speed.

    Can't imagine a ded bloke doing much philandering, but all the same, not a bad name for it,
    What about "Deathender"
    Seems appropriate?!

    @derwendolly , talking about fiddly keys on your laptop.
    My laptop's keyboard gave up the ghost a few weeks ago now, so I bought a separate keyboard which plugs into a USB socket, it is all I use now..
    The keys are as big as a normal keyboard.
    Just a thought, although I doubt you'll want it unless you start doing a lot more cruising with your laptop.
    Was recommended by a member and I can give you the make etc, if you are interested. Cheap too.:):):):):)

    Morning All :D
    Lovely day here.
    I have been clearing up "stuff" from the build in preparation for rubbish removal.
    Our phone's on the blink (no dial-tone), I wondered why we had not been pestered by the MIL. :)
    She's so loopy she forgets she has a mobile and can call the wife's mobile if she don't get through on the home phone.
    I shall have to speak sharply to Virgin Media.
    I am taking it fairly easy this weekend, Gym on Monday. :)
    Have a lovely day.

    Will have to try and find that one.
    TBH I find him the most intriguing of all the Royals.
    And I am not a royalist in any real way.
    Trev McDonut, what happened to him!?
