1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    The very possibility that the world was the size people said was ludicrous and when we drove somewhere new we just went around in circles until people shifted the scenery and got dressed up and pretended to be someone else in the "new" town. All the shops and houses looked very similar, and so did a lot of the people. Made much more sense than there actually being millions and millions of people. That would just be nuts!

    Nah, he was just a git

    Another one - at junior school in Birmingham we had a teacher called Miss Channon, so naturally I assumed she was married to Mick Channon, who at the time played up front for Southampton

    That Bryant and May “safety matches” were called that because they didn’t burn you when lit.

    It was a short, steep and painful learning curve.

    I rather liked the response: "It's mine, and I'll wash it as fast as I like!"

    When you put money in the bank they kept it in a little pile through the back with your name on it.

    Politicians -
    meant what they said
    Had the best thing for Britain as their agenda, not best for themselves

    nice people
    would stop the baddies
    would help the innocent

    Me and my mate Fat Bob used to watch the original Masterchef with Loyd Grossman and thought that Cous Cous was a small African bird. Turned out to be far less interesting.

    I can hear Attenborough talking softly about the mating habits of the North African Cous Cous. Works for me.

    I think I was about six before I grasped the fact that Foreigners didn't come from a country called Foreign.
