  • How did you hear about TIWWA?

  1. I know you don't make a big thing of your birthday, Darlene, but It is kind of nice to have a date in the calendar when we can acknowledge who you are and what you bring to our community here. So, instead of a big fuss, I'm sending you a hug from across the pond.
  2. That's just about the clearest case of justifiable homicide I've ever read. Cash Freeman is indeed one of the great and the good.
  3. There are loads of people who are great and good because, even in small ways, they make our lives just that little bit better. I went to one of our small local supermarkets today. I would never want to work in retail, because they can get so much abuse from customers, especially the drunks. The young woman on the checkout was lovely, and we had a giggle about how slow the card machine was working, "must be because it's Sunday". Such a tiny little thing but it was just that human connect, if you see what I mean. When I developed the rash, and google-diagnosed it as shingles, I phoned my GP practice just after 8 a.m. on the Monday (their busiest day). When I mentioned "shingles", the person on the phone immediately booked me in with one of the practice's nurse-practitioners for 11 a.m. that day. The nurse diagnosed shingles and prescribed meds to reduce the effects, approved the pain-relief schedule that I'd already put myself on, treated me as a sensible individual, and encouraged me to come back if things weren't going well. That's two people who cheerfully looked after me that day. The great and the good aren't always the big and the famous.
  4. There has been another terrorist attack in England this weekend, in London. They call themselves Muslims, but that’s not what they really are. The following showed up on my Facebook timeline, because it was “liked” by a FB friend. This is what true Muslims are:
  5. I don’t know how much of this was staged, nor how many takes were needed:
  6. A bit of French history: There was Napoleon the First, and Napoleon the Third (I always get them mixed up). But there was no Napoleon the Second. That was supposed to be NapoOne’s son, but he never got to be emperor. The Bonapartist lot decided when eventually NapoOne’s nephew became emperor, that he should be NapoThree, to acknowledge the emperor who never was.
  7. Love the fact about kangeroo metabolism. There's lots of fascinating stuff about the flora and fauna of Australia (and New Zealand) because they were so isolated from the rest of the world for so long and evolved very differently. I reckon animals such as kangaroos have had to be pretty smart in terms of their biology just to have survived over the millennia. Another interesting tidbit: Whitechapel in London is most famous for the Jack the Ripper murders. But like other areas in London, there's the overground national rail network plus the London underground system. What makes Whitechapel very different in modern times is that the underground rail goes over the overground rail.
  8. Happy birthday!!!
  9. This is probably the most confusing place to live in: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baarle-Hertog It's a municipality of Belgium, but most of it is bits within the Netherlands. "Some houses in the town of Baarle-Hertog/Baarle-Nassau are divided between the two countries. At one time, according to Dutch laws restaurants had to close earlier. For some restaurants on the border this simply meant that the customers had to move to a table on the Belgian side."
  10. This is excellent news. Thanks for posting it, Earthnut. I've been thinking for ages whether to get an Audible account, and this might well tip the balance in favour of that. Providing, of course, it's available in the UK, as not all Audible content can be accessed from the UK site.
  11. Belated birthday greetings, Scott. I have so got to watch that episode again.
  12. Belated birthday greetings, Viivi! Good to hear you had a very nice day.
  13. Many Happy Birthday greetings, Graham. Quiet birthdays are good.
  14. You're still younger than me! OK, pizza for breakfast is standard fare for students. But one of the really great things of getting to that milestone age is the freedom to do what what we [expletive] well like. Cake is also good for breakfast. You can trust me on that.
  15. Examples, should you ever have needed them, of why the English can seem just a little bit odd: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/travel_news/article-4305774/Hilarious-British-situations-caught-camera.html I'm currently watching a UK TV programme called "Coast", which is a collection of all the various things that goes on around the coastline of the British Isles, from people to history to geology. This episode had a segment on a jigsaw puzzle competition, which has been going on for years. The winners are whoever manages to put together the most jigsaw puzzle pieces in the time available. It's not easy to describe, but I'll do my best: The tables are provided by the organisers, and they're placed on the beach between the low and high water marks. The competitors have to decide when to call it quits, as the tide rolls in and threatens to wash the puzzle pieces away. Some seasoned competitors manage to hold up the floating tables while up to their waists in water, using their skills and knowledge to judge whether it's wise to try to fit in another piece before the next wave hits, or risk losing it all. Totally nuts! But quintessentially funny in that British way.
