  1. Battered Hey Doc poor mwa, or a saveloy wiv me chyps.
  2. Gets used every Friday evening here, along with with the chish and fips.
  3. Way, way back, in the dim and distant past, there used to be a pub in the little town of Addlestone in Surrey, UK. It was situated on the corner of Brighton Road and Station Road and called the Duke's Head. It used to be my regular, for a while at least. Now no longer in existence, demolished to make way for a block of flats. The pub sign is inside the The Bulls Head Inn, Lititz, Pennsylvania. Back then Peter was a regular at our folk club evening up until he had the hit with "where do you go to my lovely". One more appearance and we saw him no more. Paul Simon made an appearance once too. Was it '64 or '65? I forget. Ah! Memories. So long ago, so far away.
  4. Good grief DangerMouse! πŸ˜ƒ What grate catastrofee happuned hear? πŸ™„ Did somebodee say sumfink sumone took objection to? Cor blimey! And all whilst I was tucked up warmly in my beddybyze, 😴 hiding from the thick fog as bonfyre nite happened all around. πŸ€’ πŸ€₯ In future I'd better stick to my day job, moderating the MMA forum. 😷 Oh well.
  5. Which album were those lines from, William? (So familiar.) I was watching a documentary, over the weekend, about the day the wall came down by John Snow, and it reminded me ... "Now life devalues day by day As friends and neighbors turn away And there’s a change that even with regret Cannot be undone Now frontiers shift like desert sands While nations wash their bloodied hands Of loyalty, of history, in shades of grey." Thanks Floyd.
  6. I see what you did there. (Almost looked it up!) πŸ˜‚ Pfft. An onomatopoeic interjection representing a sudden cessation, disappearance, or ending (of something). (Meant to simulate the sound of something disappearing in a puff of smoke.)
  7. So sorry to hear that Kenny, It takes me back to July last year when we had to have our cat, named Tigger, put to sleep. He was 21 but had been with us for 13 years. At least I could hold him in my arms as they administered the injection. The main thing, I find, is to remember all the good times together and the happiness he gave you and you him. You did the right thing and ended his life on a high note. RIP Duke.

    i miss pigs

    I'll have you know my name is Miss PIGGY, not miss pigs!
  9. Don't you "E to the eye pie" me, you scoundrel! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰
  10. Here in the UK we seem to have lost pounds and ounces and inches, feet and yards and pennies and shillings for a simplified 'more logical' system. I much preferred the old way. But then I like minims, crotchets and quavers too. Part of a dying breed I suppose. Oh well! Just been reading about GΓΆbekli Tepe. I wonder how they measured things all those years ago?
  11. Tell her the octaves are in tune. 2:1 and major fifths are almost in tune. But the thirds are awful in E.T.
  12. And the really, really pathetically ridiculous thing about this premise is that it's based on Hz. Ever asked yourself "what really is Hertz?" A. Simple, it's cycles per second. Q.What exactly is a second? A. Well, it's a sixtieth of a minute. Q. What's a minute? A. A sixtieth of an hour. Q. What's an hour? A. A twenty-fourth of a day. Q. But why 24? Why not, for example, ten hours in a day, 100 minutes in an hour and a hundred seconds in a minute? Wouldn't that be more logical? Q. Why 24, 60 , 60? It makes no sense. Lets change to 10, 100, 100. New hours, new minutes and new seconds. Then Hz changes; the speed of light changes (or, rather, the way we measure it, and so on. The second is just some arbitrary way that humans decided to measure time, who knows how long ago. It's not a fixed cosmological constant. Why 360 degrees in a circle. Why not 100 degrees in a right angle then a circle would be 400 degrees. My children asked me these questions around 30 years ago. Any thoughts?
  13. The theme tune from Spike's Q5? Without equal.
  14. No, not when you're listening to the sound of bagpipes, an accordeon playing or that thing they call Rap. Then, the further away the speakers are, the better. Wouldn't you agree? They're the speakers for me. πŸ˜‰
