Re: Rant of the Day v2.

Although my main entertainment is Ops-Normal, when there are no new posts, I riffle through the online pages of the MSM - such as the Sun, Mirror, Metro and Express (titles which don't demand that I close my adblocker or agree to invasive cookies). There is a predominance of celebrity stories in som...

Re: WTF is happening in the UK?

Thanks - I looked but didn't find. Surprised my link didn’t give you the info you wanted, was it regarded as inadequate or could you not open it? Misunderstanding - what I meant was that prior to your link I had looked but didn't find 'personal' information about JT Link that you supplied was just ...

Re: Rant of the Day v2.

Just received the annual renewal for the council's green bin scheme. The snivelling gits have jacked the price up yet again. The original annual fee was £20, it's nearly double that now. Buggrit, I ain't renewing and my garden waste (what small amount it is) can go in the black bin instead. Our cou...

2 Aug 2019:- The entire south western part of the Okavango Delta is as dry as a bone. The annual flood from the Okavango's catchment was at its lowest levels this year. The low water found empty rivers and it is unlikely that the trickle will reach Maun this year. ... The Thaoge River flow into Lake...

The UK government is going to commission airline to fly out and rescue UK citizens - don't know whether that includes Scots or when the flight to and from Maun will happen.

Re: Covid - 19: How is it affecting you?

That red mask would be useless against Covid19, as it has no filtration for the nostrils and no eye protection. I read that you cannot acquire a viral infection through skin - it has to be ingested, inhaled or inspired, though contamination from hands to eyes via the mucous membranes is also possibl...

If, as reported, they need 4 PPO per shift, would that be 8 or 12? And also allowing for off duty periods even more. Does this include personnel for 'shopping'? "Folks" - said in a Red Dwarf Dave Lister (Craig Charles) voice - "They've made their bed - let them lie in it! - Why should we worry?"

Re: Wot's for Tea, Ma?

Local fishmonger gets samphire. I just rinse it, wilt it in a bit of butter, add a squeeze of lemon juice and serve it with bass or bream. Very tasty. I presume that you are getting 'vegetation' rather than stalks? I like (white) asparagus shoots dipped in melted butter - first experienced in Germa...
