  3. Your clever heading refers to classic gems. I thought at first it was about an aged female relative's pectoral appendage.

  5. "Buenos" Dias .. in an vain attempt to support this thread Mrs Mac offered up Spanish Bombs & 90's Retro Kid Smooth Operator!

    Ay te wacho.








    BTW Mr MacLean here's a thread idea ...

    my entry is going to be "Adam the armadillo" .. you can't overlook the obvious ;-)

    3. I admire your optimism. Maybe if you mention what you're having for your tea you'll be rewarded.

    1. Appears to be some sort of alien race.

      BTW, didn't get to see Helvis in the end Glen. A mate of mine did though and said he put on a good show.

    Not a bad playlist last night (Monday) but how could they kick off with The Look "I Am The Beat"??

  10. Okay suckers ... from my secret foreign bunker the final assault on our favourite early evening radio show has been hatched.

    Who's man enough to ask Ms Baps out for a curry or whatever .. "pizza seems more Bearsden" & suggest retirement with like minded ladies who lunch?
    Gaie you can relax meantime but phase II surrounding the disc spinner will require Special Op's authorisation

    10. Gaie, your mission should you decide to accept it .. disgused as a fellow middle distance runner you lure BB / a.k.a. Forest to a long distance runners training camp anywhere in the U.S.
      Whilst on an extended training run you introduce a hypnotic brain washing mantra encouraging freedom of choice from BBC dogma .. should this fail use extreme prejudice to achieve your mission.

  13. Which reminds me:

    Harry, Prince of Wales: I wanted to have a word with you about my speech at the wedding feast. I thought perhaps I'd go for a fruit motif.
    Prince Edmund: Yes...?
    Harry, Prince of Wales: Something like, er, "It is with extrawberry pleasure that we welcome you, er, may you be the apple of your husband's eye, and may he, in turn, cherries you..." - 'Cherish', you see - "... even though it's an oranged marriage." Good, eh?
    Prince Edmund: Brilliant. Quite, quite brilliant.
    Harry, Prince of Wales: Yes, I thought it was rather good. I'm hoping to squeeze in a 'banana' by the end of the day.
