    2. Who banned you Mac? Is it self restraint?

      What does the magic number relate to?

    3. Glen tweaked my meds & I'm H A PP Y all the time. However, I run the risk of being banned from Farcebook because I can't stop liking others fantastic posts. This is playing on my paranoia as I feel so inadequate in the presence of enlightenment.

  9. Not a great theme tonight is it? Only 44 posts on the other side and many of them arent giving a song to play. A lot that do are shite - which you would expect, given the theme.

      A logical response to Leonard Nimoy's sad demise is to boldly demand a SPACE theme.

  17. What is an unexpected original?

    Don't they know that grammar topics are too taxing for the listeners?

    And is your charm offensive working, Glen?

    And is because these are all questions that it won't let me post this as a reply?

      I heard Vic laugh at one of your jokes. (I laughed, too)!


      1) He doesn't play Country music.

      2) He doesn't play my suggestions.

      3) He definitely doesn't play my Country music suggestions.

    4. I wouldn't miss Bryan, especially when he's teamed up with the irritating Mrs. Wallace. Time for a fresh start. The dream team would be Henri Hannah and Anne Ramsay.

    2. no - it's a hazardous place to drive late on a Saturday night, with rickshaw bicycle things appearing out of nowhere to trap the unwary motorist - saw one nearly getting run over by a reversing car.

      I didn't hear what was said, but if we can have Bonnie Scotland and Bonnie Prince Charlie I fail to see the problem with Bonnie Raitt or even Bonnie Tyler.

    4. Feckin typo's...

      Careful now. I paid a moody compliment, which I felt duty bound to explain & was moderated. They have no concept of verbal, dramatic, and situational irony.

      BTW, recently in my Comm. Council capacity, a W.D.C. Officer failed to attend a meeting citing attendance at a Clydebank Shopping Centre charrette as his excuse.

      In reflection I'm kinda glad he didn't make it if the shopping centre is an example of his best effort!

    5. Mac, I had to google half of that to understand what you are talking about.
      As DC says, I've been away ower long.

  26. My school disco had a wind-up gramophone.

  27. You'll no have had a school disco Glen. Jimmy Saville invented the mobile disco in the 60s.
    And Billy, the bottom touchers would have been 10 years before your school discos.

  28. I met Jimmy Savile. He was making a personal appearance in a cycle shop where I happened to be buying helmets for my kids. I'm not so happy now about him patting them on the head.

    1. He did more than that when he went to the Playtex factory in Port Glasgow - apparently he got out the limo, made straight for the women workers lined up to meet him, and put his hands on their boobs - they were utterly shocked but it seems no-one thought to make a fuss about it. It was only this week I heard someone talk of it.

    1. could you manage to précis it into around 3 sentences? I've a lot to do today.

      And none of it will involve listening to this . Hands up those who really, truthfully think it's better than cleaning your ears with a brillo pad.
