after all the years of suffering being called a miserable old bar-steward by mrs zz , I am finally rejoicing that she has come round to my way of thinking. the source of this wonderment?... a newly found joint loathing of the foul phenomenon of otherwise seemingly intelligent individuals starting a sentence with the word "so"!!!! if you have been asked , "how do you propose to re-attach that button"? , or , "what method would you use to distribute seed in your garden" , fair enough but otherwise , nooooooooooo! other current hot favourites are "yoofs" with their kecks hanging out the top of their trousers and newly qualified drivers with a green p plate (clearly designating pillock) who refuse to commit to crossing a roundabout without having received a written invitation at least a fortnight in advance! what gets your hackles up?

at any given time there are millions of women in the world who are with child. So, no, it's not big, it's not particularly clever, and you are certainly not unique. GET OVER YOURSELF!

Do not get me started on plaster casts of the maternal torso!

Sports reporting on-line (might be in print as well, but I don't buy papers anymore). Specifically.........

"......... Five things we learned." Why bother putting this in nearly every headline? .........And why always five things, never a different amount?

What makes it worse is it seems to be creeping into general reporting now too.
Five things we have learned from Slot Forum.

#1. favourite tool , hammer. does that make me analogue?
#2. irreverent but harmless , often engages mouth before brain.
#3. remember , its only funny until someone gets hurt.... then its bleedin' hilarious! (see #2)
#4. proud to be a luddite. (see #1)
#5. my hammer wont let me down....can you say the same about your computer? (see #1 & #4)

we now have heavy/bulky/awkward items on the first floor and lightweight stuff on the ground floor.
The items that are stored and retrieved the most should be nearest the door? Maybe?
SO OK Photobucket has stopped 3rd party stuff. I can live with that.

Now what is annoying me is the "advert" it wants to apply to my posts when I have not added a picture. The one with the clock telling me what I already know.
Just testing my Photobucket moan. But have blocked it with U block. So far so good.

It will be the sitting that broke the camels back. Maybe. I have a few mates who drink but they also cycle or walk or...

Assuming they have been given numbers, in the first place.

Post code still works for sat. nav. so no real need.
I think you can eliminate the Fire Service. They will respond to the house with the smoke coming out of the roof.

In the UK most, if not all, houses with names are in small rural villages. So not much room for confusion.

Don't get me started on property identification!

I've even had a customer say "The postman knows which house it is". Well, I don't have the postman with me today Mrs.
