After two week of doing bugger all and a rather severe change of diet I am now 131 kilos or 289 pounds. Last I recall I was a shade over 300, so close to a stone gone and little or none of it will be fat cos your body loves that stuff

Just finished reading Fleming's Casino Royale, not bad but not overly good either. Interesting to compare it with the films.

However one sentence did stand out like a lighthouse on a dark night. Here it is -

"Then he lit his seventieth cigarette of the day and sat down at the writing table with the thick wad of his stake money and winnings beside him and entered some figures in a small note book."

The fact that it was his seventieth cigarette makes that a stand out sentence, but isn't that a very strange start to a sentence ? It looks it to me but my knowledge of s**t like this is very restricted.

The sentence before it ended ".....Bond undressed and took a cold shower" if that helps.

Am I making mountains out of molehills or could I just be correct, for possibly, the first time in my entire life, on matters concerning language ?

JohnGym said:I think, and hope actually, that the end of cash is nigh.


That would surely mean the end of the brown envelope. That will ensure its existence for ever in my view.

Changed my bedding last night, which is always one of life's little treats and was rewarded by sleeping to gone half nine this morning. Combined shopping and exercise to stock up on soup, milk, bread and frozen dinners all paid for by contactless, non disease transmitting payments.

I have a bag of change, it sits on a table in the front room and since Tuesday of last week it has remained literally untouched. I used to use cash in the coffee machine at work, I used it in the canteen, had to, no option. Thursday nights were always cash transactions. Petrol was always cash as the one time I had a card cloned it was at a petrol station. Chippies are cash as were McDonalds.

It was my custom to put copper coins in charity boxes. I wonder how the incomes of charities has been affected now that cash has become so unloved.

Today's effort

Sometimes I use big words that I don't fully understand just to make myself sound more photosynthesis.

Thank you for your attention

Ah, I'm with you. Never heard Nixon referred to as that before but it is obviously where the Richard Milhous came from

Which dastardly Dick are you referring to? Wink


The famous one of Wacky Races, who went on to try to catch pigeons, had a sidekick named Muttley.

I can't think of another off the top of my head.

April fool's day. A ridiculous notion if you ask me which I will have no truck with. Not the best of days today. The phone did ring and it was someone I wanted to hear from, the optician in fact. My glasses had arrived so I popped along and got them, they now sit on the front of my fat face as that really did seem the best place to put them.

Got a text or two from young Mack from the club which was pleasant. I have to admit that people are keeping in touch during this lockdown nonsense and it does help a great deal.

So, new glasses, and I managed to incorporate some shopping into the round trip. The shop I went to was near the post office, and they, it would seem are only letting one or two into the place at the same time, there were about twenty people queuing to get in there which with the two metre rule meant a very long queue. They must have been giving cash away as I can't remember the last time I same that many folk wanting to get in.

And so to finish -

I watched an episode of Australian masterchef, someone made a meringue and everyone cheered, which was odd, as Australians usually boo meringue.

Ho ho ho.

You get no prizes for knowing Dick Dastardly's first name was Richard, but kudos to anyone who knew that his middle name was Milhous

It the good old days (prior to last Wednesday) on arriving home from work I would occasionally find a message on my landline answerphone which was an automated voice stating that my credit card had been used in several countries for hundreds of pounds etc etc. There is also a button I can press where I can see who has phoned me while I was at work. It was a rare day when no one rang, I frequently saw withheld or unknown numbers, usually just one or two, the record for a single day is, if memory serves me correctly eleven. That was a one-off but three or four is not unusual.

Today is my fourth day of working from home and so far, the phone has not rung once.

Is it too much to hope that the scammers are all dead ?

This morning I watched "Once upon a time in Hollywood" and enjoyed it immensely. Not sure what is next, maybe a nap.

British summer time. I hate that s**t and the sooner we scrap it the better, trouble is I don't think they ever will. All clocks altered - I may disapprove but I couldn't have a clock wrong. That just wouldn't be fair on the clock

Rick said:I won't start to worry until you start putting the chicken soup on the weetabix.


Cheers Rick, I think that day is quite some way off.

I always appreciated the works canteen, and was always amazed that so few used it. You had a choice of three meals every day, there was soup as well to start with if required and a selection of puddings and custard if the need arose (and it often did). It would never have got a michelin star but it was good wholesome food, that someone else cooked and did the washing up. Plus it was subsidised. It was a rare day I spent more than 4 on my dinner. They would also make bespoke sandwiches for mid morning.(As well as sausage, bacon and egg barms) I used to go for any cold meat (I would let them choose) plus tomato and cucumber on brown bread, cost was 1.20 which was about half what Tesco would have charged. And yet several would turn their noses up at this and drive a mile to Tesco to pay double what the canteen charged and then drove a mile back. Nowt so queer as folk as the old saying goes.

I really miss it now.

Thanks for that Martin, I was in a small convenience store this morning buying chicken soup and weetabix of all things and strangest of all a pack of Chorley cakes which strangely felt like a treat, which they really aren't. Odd things are happening to me, maybe it's the isolation, or maybe it's eating standing up. Yeah, the latter of those two seems the more likely.

End of first week of working from home and it is still as horrible as it ever was and it really won't get any better


Plus I am really sick of that medical officer guy who keeps popping up between programs to give us an update and one of the first things out of his mouth is "Anyone can give you the virus" Surely you actually have to have it first - you can't give things that you don't have. I would have been beaten half to death at school for such a basic mistake.
