  1. What song are you listening to... right NOW?

  2. Hello guys, please help me out

    Hi Rooney I had no idea about scissor lifts until your post. Now after using a wonderful tool called Google search I now know a lot more. I think you should contact firms who manufacture/sell them in your area or look for some social media around scissor lifts. Love the connection with books but think your on the wrong forum my friend.

  6. what is everyone doing?

    Had a serious asthma attack this week and very frightening it was.Now on two types of inhaler and steroids.Strange you think as you get older your not going to get the illnesses that strike the young. My doctor thinks it could have been brought on by increasing pollution. or maybe because it happened on Monday when massive amounts of smoke and chemicals were put in the air because of someone who nobody cares or remembers but know his name and like to explode and burn stuff. Everything in the news is Trump or Brexit. No matter your views it would be lovely to have something good to come from both. Fingers crossed.

  9. what is everyone doing?

    Halloween and I've hidden from the American infected horrors going round my area banging on your door and demanding sweets or throwing eggs at your door. Can't blame Trump for this one. Got man flu this week, something you women will never understand since we suffer in silence and with an indomitable will. Everything in the news this week gets more and more depressing. Some good news would be lovely. On the wildlife front https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/oct/31/five-countries-hold-70-of-worlds-last-wildernesses-map-reveals all depressing. Be glad you can see squirrels and foxes. Your descendants may not.
  10. Where are you?

    Starting to worry that Trump could have made you disappear.

    Get posting.Miss you.

  11. Poetic Wanderings

    Marrying left your maiden name disused. Its five light sounds no longer mean your face, Your voice, and all your variants of grace; For since you were so thankfully confused By law with someone else, you cannot be Semantically the same as that young beauty: It was of her that these two words were used. Now it's a phrase applicable to no one, Lying just where you left it, scattered through Old lists, old programmes, a school prize or two, Packets of letters tied with tartan ribbon - Then is it secentless, weightless, strengthless wholly Untruthful? Try whispering it slowly. No, it means you. Or, since your past and gone, It means what we feel now about you then: How beautiful you were, and near, and young, So vivid, you might still be there among Those first few days, unfingermarked again. So your old name shelters our faithfulness, Instead of losing shape and meaning less With your depreciating luggage laiden. Maiden Name by Philip Larkin

    According to my kindle I'm 42% and loving it. Very unusual with no paragraphs and no names for characters but have chuckled many times. So far a book I can only read in short bursts, it's very intense. Congratulations to Anna Burns and hoping the win brings her to a far wider audience.
  15. Have a Rant!

    Momac not sure if it's a solution but a friend of mine sleeps in a separate room to his wife and for many years this as worked. She has an en suite bathroom and lots of wardrobes, he has a computer and stacks of biking magazines. She told me confidentially it was because of his snoring but neither want to go back to sharing. There is the added frisson of the occasional visit to the others bedroom
