    Hi, Dolly, This should be in the 'critique' section. My critique is that in the beginning, you say He always wears a tie until bedtime, and never the same one two days running. To me, this already signifies he is a man of standards. There is no need ...

      Newbie I know the feeling. I had to buy another computer (refurbished + Windows 10) as my old one probably wouldn't have handled it. At least you already have Windows 7. ;-)

      Newbie I caved in and changed to Windows 10, Mezz. I got the note from Firefox telling me it wouldn't support Vista from September onwards. Not using Firefox at all now as Edge seems to do the trick quicker. Before I changed I often got 'this website is not supported/accessible. Hope that helps :(

    I like the way this is progressing, thanks, Giselle. It reminds me of the Victoria Wood 'Other people's Christmas traditions' routine. My own addition to this blog thread is based on my aversion to visitors of any kind: FEW TINY RULES: I only drink ...

    I like this little blog, Dolly. I am sure you will find much in your future research. Thinking about it now, I once had a mirror that, on reflection, did not work.

    There were three sisters named Pam, Jan and Fanny and they all had massive feet. One night Pam and Jan decide to go to a nightclub and late in the evening they get chatted up by some blokes. "Haven't you got big feet," said one of the ...

    You know, I was just thinking we need a gags blog. A bit of pure indulgent trivia. When we do this the standard is always high without ever being toilet or obscene. Shows class, character and style - as per Cissies blog. I put one on my status ...

    Mezz wrote a new blog: "Names".
    Just a quick story before I pop on the recycled clothing. A Man and his Son were strolling in the garden and the talk turned to names. "Daddy, Why are you called Ray." The boy asked The Father replied; "In our family we name our children after ...

    Thanks for the invite, Mezz, but am so busy at present I think having a source of new ideas would enable me to procrastinate even more than I'm already doing! ;)
