What flavour Rosa? The original cherry or the honey ones, I like them both.

Do you know what it's like when you start reading a book and you're not really enjoying it much but you feel like you should press on anyway? The most boring 'famous' writer I've ever tried to stick with is Henry James, never managed to finish one of his yet. Wodehouse as well, just daft if you ask me, who is everyone's most boring author? Come on, join in, this thread is moribund, good word that!

Well I'm really stimulating some conversation on here! I just thought I'd let you all know, (that's if anybody reads this thread) that the local paper printed a letter of mine this week, I think it's the most exciting thing that's ever happened to me in my entire life.

I can't think of anything that's happened recently that rates a mention here except that I had a telephone chat with my sister yesterday.

I've used Head and Shoulders shampoo for years, but on impulse I bought a bottle of Vosene anti-dandruff shampoo, do you know it's half the price of H & S? So far there is no sign of Dandruff! I'll let you all know if it does appear, but fingers crossed.

I picked two spears of asparagus today, fortunately my wife isn't too keen on it, so I can eat them both. Come to think of it I picked some radishes as well, and my wife isn't fussed about them either. I love radishes me!

My wife and I went looking at turkey crowns today, as far as I can see the best value is at Iceland, you can't rush into these decisions, but all advice would be appreciated.

I can't say anything about turkisch crowns, but I can say I have the flu and am not so thrilled about it. I feel rather tired and spent the last 2 days not doing a lot.

It struck me that I might bore people witless explaining how quark containment collapses when the meson emits its electron, positron (or other) gluon shared between neutrino/anti-neutrino that comprise the bulk of the meson and the neutrino and the anti-neutrino go their separate ways.

There be nothing to jold them together any more, what else can they do? smiley - shrug

Very strange.

I thought my post above was more lucid when I originally posted it.

Mind you I've found some of my oldest posts so corrupt as to amount to little more than machine noise.

It is strange how cold weather fans and get so hot under the collar about looking at weather pattern charts compiled by meteorologists and weather analysts and go on about their going on a pub run and saying that they must have been drunk when they compiled their weather pattern charts.

Meteorology is still a young science, founded by Benjamin Franklin whiling away the time during one of his 18th century voyages across the Atlantic.

Though he popularized it with his French and British scientific friends, it wasn't until 1880 that there was a sufficient body of meteorological observations to allow reasonably good statistical generalizations, which is why 1880 has become the base date for climate change determinations.

Meteorology is improving but is still an imperfect science.

They're making progress, though.

smiley - biggrinThe most powerful weather prediction tool so far developed is satellite tracking.

If I want to know what's coming in the way of weather, the first thing I look at is the satellite map to see what's actually coming my way.

Geoff, the bricklayer who is to build a wall to go beside my driveway, has just informed me that he cannot build the wall if the temperature outside is 2°C or lower, or is expected to fall to or below this temperature later today.
The reason is because the water in the mortar expands upon freezing and this will disrupt the bond.
Some people use additives, retarding agents or frost protectors, but he didn’t want to as it slows the setting of the mortar. He even knew of one bricklayer who simply just covered a wall with tarpaulin which evidently showed that he didn’t know what he was doing.
If he just went ahead and built the wall, then it (the mortar) would simply crumble to nothing.

We had a desk reshuffle in the office this morning. All of my equipment found its way to the new desk, and everything works fine when I plug it in. I think it's going to be a noisy desk - I'm near a large whiteboard on wheels, so I'll have a crowd of pimply-faced youths gathering to hold their project's 15-minute scrum meeting every day. Any tips for repelling scrums will be gratefully received.
