Perhaps Not?

I know about childbirth, but I've never had the first hand experience of giving birth.

I told you, luckily I have an inbuilt sewerage system, which allows me to sort through all the crap you produce, and deal with your biggest, most offensive filth, more effectively.

Also children grow so quickly. My daughter bought her little girl some school skirts just as the school holidays began,thinking she would save time and effort during what was to be a busy time for her........only to find the skirts are too short, because her daughter has had a growth spurt - must be the sun and sea air.

I don't know about Italy, but it is difficult to buy clothes that are made in the EU...everything seems to come from China.
I bought myself a pair of M&S sandals - not cheap - found they had been made in Vietnam.
People's expectations have changed undoubtedly -I remember mum sponging my school clothes down from one day to the next if I marked them, my god-daughter would be horrified at the idea and changes for school every day! I had one change of uniform -mum knit the cardigans herself and made a lot of my & my sisters clothes by hand and she worked full-time as a teacher.

Many people now spend less on the basics to have more of life's luxuries -mentalities have shifted. Back to my mum -who was neither a Saint or a Martyr -she cooked a full meal for the family every evening. These days so many spend a fortune on ready made meals and take-aways because they don't have time...Time is what you make of it, as a rule families are better off now than they were in the 70's -the priorities have changed-in many cases not for the better -but them I'm an old fuddy-duddy and walk round with rose-tinted specs most of the time

But your post was out of context wasn't it? You quoted a post of mine then simply questioned my employment status and couldn't even attempt to respond to the actual post. That shows a distinct lack of cohesion. I don't mind the insults (as I'm sure you don't - if I made any) but please try to at least stay to the point old chap.

I use a computer and haven't got a clue how they work!

Maybe we could swap our experiences!

I know about the Battle of Hastings, though I wasn't actually there.




















I was ill when it took place, and wasn't able to travel.

No.

Checked.

Just a whole load of runny stuff there.

Nothing of substance.

No big lumps, needing atention.

One of the problems with trying to have a debate with someone, who can't remember what they said to whom, it's good that all us mere mortals just blend into one in your mind, that way you class anyone who doesn't agree with you as the same person, makes it easier to justify your own point of view, well only one person disagreed eh!

It was me you mentioned te sewage system too

You've got to be joking, I was once trapped in the house while my ex and four of her friends insisted on out-doing each other for over 6 hours re-counting their individual experiences in that, each one giving a more detailed and gory account than the last whenever one them described the excruciating pain and discomfort she had been through, a pause would come to the conversation as all five turned and glared that, you swine, you don't know what you put me through look, it was a most distressing experience and most confusing for me, because to my knowledge, I had only fathered the children of one of them!

I now look at your posts and just see a pretty two-dimensional pattern, composed of a whole host of typed letters.

I look, but it makes no sense.

I've even tried staring at one letter in the centre of the jumbled mess, in the hope a magical image of Mickey Mouse will suddenly appear, but no, nothing.

In case anyone might be tempted, who can actually read what's been posted, I'll repeat myself again.

Give, give, give.

The argument, as our poll so clearly illustrates, that recreational drugs should be made legal, will never, ever be won on this forum.

Accy Web isn't the place where you have a hope in Hell of this ever happening.

Was that before or after you spoilt Guinevere's bit of fun by running off with Lancelot?

Perhaps it's time to change immagery and go back to sorting out the wheat from the chaff... No bog-roll round in those days -just nice soft clumps of moss...

By the way "Church" - no need to question Garinda's memory it is infallible, as is his logic and wit. Thetis had learned her lesson by the time he was born and dropped him in the Styx giving him a thorough dunking so no bits were left unwetted!

Though please don't think my rude, if you don't register for any further action.

It really is nothing personal.

It will probably just be that there's some more solidly produced crap, that needs attention.

How's shelling peas as a description?

I'm sure you can make even computer technology seem that simple...
