I've been wondering!!!!
Ive been wondering if Colin really meant endorsement or endowment. All Ive ever wanted was an endorsement from Patricia for my endowment but she has remained tight-lipped on the matter!! TC.
Mmmmm!!!! Methinks the hidden meaning was a little too well hidden. TC.
Tomorrow, 11 September (Virgo)*, is the birthday of our beloved founder, Terence Penelope Carey. What I've been wondering is- How come he's still knocking on in his eighth decade when Hitler, Tchaikovsky and Errol Flynn all died in their 'fifties'? I singled them out because dear TC bears the attributes of all three! *Virgo: Thats a joke to start with! Last edited by John Richards
Oy!!! Who told you about my middle name? Ill bet it was that Mike Pass. Hes been a bit quiet lately though but I expect hell rear his head up anytime now. I was once at the Head Office of Thorn Electrical for a meeting after they took over the firm where I was in charge of Purchasing. Several of the Senior Staff members invited me for lunch and I thought I was popular until I found out that if they took a guest into the Dining Room they also got a free lunch. During the meal I was seated with about a dozen of them and they began nattering about work matters but referred to everybody by initials of their Christian names. Not one had less than two and most had three. I was asked what my initials were so just said - truthfully - T. They all looked as if I were from Mars and I the man said, Surely its not just T? You must have more than that. I said very dead pan, No you see when I was born we were very poor and my parents couldnt afford more than one name for me. There was a dead silence all round the table but eventually he said, Well, actually Terry, erm, it doesnt depend on how well off you are. You can have as many names as your parents want. I said, Honestly? Is that true? Well, Im damned! but I think the look on my face gave the game away. Struggling not to laugh I must have twitched or something because he suddenly pulled a face and said, You bugger!!! You got the lot of us there! It was true and after that they all changed their attitude and the atmosphere was much more relaxed. I hate snobbery! TC.
Sorry Terry....... NINTH DECADE !
Ive been wondering........ If a bra is an uppertopper tittyflopper stopper, and a sports support is a lowerdecker slackerknacker packer, what is a Japanese unarmed combat expert whose father suffers from chronic diarrhoea?
Ive been wondering after reading Colins mention of Mahatma Ghandi how many people know that when he was a law student and then solicitor in London in his early days he was also a slum landlord? He made a lot of money apparently from buying up or renting slum properties and then renting them out to students at exorbitant rates. Not quite in keeping with his later image. TC.
If Ghandi had been ginger haired, would he have been Shandi Ghandi? If he had bow legs, would that make him Bhandi Ghandi? If he had been ambidextrous, would he have been Hhandi Ghandi? And just to please John Daley, if he was oversexed, would he have been Rhandi Ghandi?

got it in one but the smile on my brotherinlaws face tells a diffrerent story?
Ive been wondering if anyone else has had the same problem weve been having lately. We have a cordless phone system and Ive been very busy recently getting quotes for travel insurance. You all know the problem with most firms these days. Press 1 for frustration, 2 for exasperation and so on. What has started to happen is that every time I pressed the appropriate button the disembodied voice would pipe up again and repeat all the options. This would happen no matter what I did so I had to resort to phoning them on my mobile which got through without a problem and asking them to phone me back. Some did and some didnt. The question is what is wrong! Is it our phones or are the systems going wonky? It has even happened with the Appointments Department at our local hospital. Any ideas, suggestions, cures would be greatly appreciated. TC.
When you have been given the options and you press the required key, are you seeing that reflected in the handset screen (assuming it is a screen type) ?
The number just dialled is still on screen and the selected option number then appears as if it were part of the firms number. If you select it and press again then it pops up again in the same manner ad infinitum. TC.
By the way it doesnt happen every time but enough to make me grind my teeth. TC.
If it is showing, then, as an apparent extension of the dialled number it may not be a handset issue, although your other statements point to this. Do you have another phone handy that you can plug into your line?
I have a spare so Ill try that first. I suspected the phones first of all but it doesnt happen every time so well have to see. The spare is in the shed and Im not rooting around there at this time of night. TC.
I have recently purchased a plug-in Ultrasonic Pest Repellent in order to deter a visiting mouse. It is supposed to issue a high frequency noise that will drive away unwanted vermin. I have plugged it in, and, as the makers claim, I cant hear anything, so how do I know its working?
Duh!!!!! Buy a mouse, innit!...
Quoting: John Richards I have recently purchased a plug-in Ultrasonic Pest Repellent in order to deter a visiting mouse. It is supposed to issue a high frequency noise that will drive away unwanted vermin. I have plugged it in, and, as the makers claim, I can't hear anything, so how do I know it's working? Reminds me of a duo I once saw who claimed that one of them could sing a note you couldnt hear. They fooled everybody in the club except yours truly who happened to know the range of human voices and the frequency at which noises are inaudible to us. I had an argument with a bloke who objected to me laughing at the scam. When I told him it was impossible he told me Dont be so bloody daft. Ive just heard him sing it!!!. About your post though it must be difficult to ask your local mice as they wont set foot in your house with that racket going on. TC.
I suppose you could check the packaging the unit came in just in case you overlooked the supplied test mouse........!
Quoting: Rev. Roger Perry Our solution is simple - we have four cats. 4 cats = no mice! Incidentally, mice do not particularly like cheese - peanut butter is much more to their liking. Last edited by Rev. Roger Perry I used to have a chocolate mouse for Christmas, as a kid. A mouse made of chocolate or a mouse that liked chocolate.........an interesting concept when juxtaposed.
Did you hear about the new method of getting rid of mice? In appearance it seems to be a box with a hole at one end. Inside is a ramp. At the end of the ramp is a partition with a small hole at head level - for a mouse that is. On the other side of the hole there is a razor blade mounted a little way away from the hole and slightly underneath it. The mouse sticks its head through the hole, looks from side to side, asks Wheres the *%^*ing cheese (or peanut butter)? and cuts its throat. This is quite effective although a little messy. TC.
