Re: Weather

Yes, We get more or less the same. Only last week and for practically all of May we had single figure Celsius temps throughout the days and in the early mornings dog walking was wearing bobble hat and gloves. This week it's in the mid to high twenties, which qualifies as Summer here, so it's tees & ...

Re: Li Nas X

For my money his kilt is far too long...like something worn by women and I'm also not into a public showing of hairy armpits either.

Re: Interesting perspective

I remember visiting Edinburgh on a Graduation Day and the place was awash with young men in kilts. Again, a ceremonial occasion. One niece married a Cameron and the wedding was in Manchester, where the niece lived. Although I belonged to the bride's side I was encouraged to attend kilted up, so ever...

Re: Skirt Specials

Cute little skirts Anthony and I have been looking up your sizing. Size 10 has a waist of just 71 cms which roughly translates to 28 inches.

With such a measurement you must be built like a jockey!....for speed. :cheese:

Re: SW UK - hello

welcome Lexi. Also touched on here are trains, planes boats, politics, weather &c &c., all of which continue to interest contributors here. Nice neck-o'-the-woods you live in. I have a fair smattering of cousins and immediate descendants scattered around Devon. Visiting them might again be easy with...

Re: The year without a spring

Some eight weeks ago I was up a needlessly rickety alu-ladder attending to some cabling 9 feet off the ground. The ladder wobbled under me and fell away, leaving me like the Disney cartoon character suspended momentarily in mid- air before plummeting to Earth, sorry, concrete. I rolled onto my back,...

Re: The year without a spring

Uncle Al, Two pieces of ladder advice from the Emerald sod, where it rains 24/7/365 and the ground is soggy all the time:

1/ Put a transverse board of timber under both the front foot and the back foot of the ladder. Then it won't sink or tilt.

2/ Don't dare go climbing ladders at your age!

Re: Pantyhose / Tights Reviews and Recommendations for the Taller Gentleman

60 den. XL latte opaques from Amazon or wherever, held up with good compression briefs with a little leg make the perfect combo for 6'2" me with 33"inside leg. Comfort all day long, but I can't sleep in them.

Total modesty even when I pirouette in my skimpy glittery dance tutu :)

Ah B&B, The Cavalry have been spotted on the horizon and headed our way, with Elon Musk playing the part of John Wayne.

Re: Covid 19

Coder, You lost me on that one-line post just now. As Dennis said, we just wear masks, keep 2M distant from others and observe the 'traffic light' system when entering some stores which have limited space inside. No-0ne has a 'Covid passport' here yet. Double immunised has not conferred any privileg...

Re: England; May the 17th be with you! Normality(ish) returns!!

For England, read Ireland. On March 17th St Patrick's Day we had afternoon temps of 17 degrees. Today May 17th it struggled to get over 10 degrees and heavy showers running into each other as well. Thoroughly unpleasant. Nothing nice in the forecast for the coming week, either. Our Powers that Be ar...

Re: East coast fuel shortage

I bought my first car, a 1966 Triumph Vitesse brand new. I was based in Putney and my favourite fill-up garage in Mortlake sold 4-star petrol for five shillings a gallon. That meant that One Pound bought four Imperial gallons. This stayed more-or-less the same until after decimalisation in early 197...
