Re: For the Amature Astronomers among us

We too have rain and high winds with very low barometric pressure forecast for today & tomorrow, with dull skies thereafter this week, but I'm not put out. ] Speaking of comets I remember well the spectacular Arend-Roland comet of 1956-7, which hung in the sky for months on end and whose tail reache...

Re: World leaders and skirts and apparently a conversation on Scotland becoming separate from the United Kingdom &#12852

Rivegauche needs to update his info. on a possible reunification of Ireland. Chancellor Kohl very nearly bankrupted Germany when on reunification he gave the East Germans a Deutschmark for an East German Mark and it took the country a great many years to recover from that....a whole generation in fa...

Re: My scientifically proven way to regrow your thinning hair...

Well, the 'Man in the iron mask' was incarcerated in some castle or other for years until his death, after which they found out what he looked like....too late.
He wasn't worried about 5g reception, though.

Re: World leaders and skirts

It was said that football (soccer) is a gentlemans' game played by thugs, and Rugby Union is a thugs' game played by gentlemen. The real problem for soccer is the followers or fans. There is where the rancour spills over and violence brings the whole sport into disrepute. When such an all-inclusive ...

Re: Has anyone worn skirt in Southern Ireland

Geoff, I know the area well, but from a rower's, canoeist's or sailor's point of view. For these activities I don't wear skirts, so I cannot help there. There's a 0.5% chance in early Summer of getting a few nanoseconds of sunshine, prompting the brave to don shorts. There's your chance to don somet...

I notice that the Swan and the Sturgeon are missing, but maybe they're due to be brought in for the 'Second Remove' !

Quite a feast!

Re: Men's Skirt Brand Launch

Having such a large garden/grounds with so many wooden structures therein, most now 20-odd years old, the moisture-rot factor dictates constant replacements here and there. I still buy timber for this at our local builders' merchant and I still think old-fashioned Imperial, but everything is now 'Me...

Re: Men's Skirt Brand Launch

A lot of valid points, Dust. Proportion is paramount. Minis are difficut to pair with any sort of jacket, being best under a blouse or similar. Of course some girls have pins to die for and the mini then becoms just a pelmet hiding their very tops. Posture then becomes paramount. It's hard to beat t...

Re: A true "member extraordinaire" passes

I can attest that 'Skip' wasn't expecting to go when he did. Right up to his departure we were deep into a dental discussion with me about whether he could have some implants for his mouth and was about to submit a panoramic radiograph to me for my opinion. His departure was sudden, I expect. Lord r...

Re: Skirts in front of alot of people

Geoff, Mentioning Stanstead, you didn't say where you were flying to. Some years ago I worked in Germany and before boarding a plane to Bremen I had a bite to eat at one of the outlets in that Terminal. There I spied a real transvestite tall youth in a miniskirt suit, tights and platform shoes. He h...

Re: Feileadh-mor Ulaidh A.D.1641-1653

Come down to the Curragh of Kildare, where they managed to hold him down long enough for ten Aussie sheep shearers to bare his pelt after a long day's work. This enormous seamless chamois was used as the heat shield for the turf-burning communications satellite broadcasting strictly to the Nation 'a...

Re: Feileadh-mor Ulaidh A.D.1641-1653

6 foot by 12 !! What a 'waste' of good chamois. I didn't think it came in dimensions that big. The word 'Ulaidh' to my knowledge would mean 'of Ulster', which at that time had nine counties, which of course it has to this day. At least for some of the years mentioned 'we' were contending with a cert...
