Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

Sun's up, sky clear, birdies beginning to sound like they think it's spring.

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

I was fiddling with GoogleTranslate and entered 'marrow' and it suggested "a friend, companion, or workmate (often used as a form of address)" I know of 'marrer' but I have never associated it with marrow. Reminds me, I knew someone who habitually spelt "mirror" as "mirrow". I surmised it was becau...

Re: Preternatural instincts, beauty and other sundry, but fun, balderdash..

There is anecdotal evidence of more people than one might expect being awake, even up and about, just prior to the Mag. 7.1 earthquake of 4:35am, September 4 2010. Another thing I have noticed: I have heard the "rustling silk" s...

Re: Preternatural instincts, beauty and other sundry, but fun, balderdash..

Several years ago I woke around 2:45am, wondered why, checked GeoNet, no earthquake.

Ten or fifteen minutes later - earthquake.

Carl Reiner was a very funny man, indeed. I enjoyed The Dick Van Dyke Show and the "2000 Year Old Man", and also his appearance in The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are coming - trailer here, 4:28

What do you think of all this manuka honey? We think it's a con.
I keep a jar of Manuka honey, the real thing, strong-flavoured dark honey, have used it for sore throats and coffs, believe it to be soothing and effective.
