    Actually, and you may appreciate this merc, I used to write stuff up on my shop windows advertising my promos.......and spelt some of the words wrongly!  Surprising how many people came in to tell me anti-freeze wasn't spelt Aunty Freeze!

    Indeed, it's a common ruse, also used in online search engines (deliberate inclusion of commonly mis-spelt words in text and so on). Photoshoot, eh? They're gonna make him a star.....


    Yes, and also used to great effect by showmen at fairgrounds and market traders.

  2. I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for an answer Bedlingtonian.

    I, for one, wouldn't fancy 'having my body severed in two, my bowels taken from thence and burned to ashes, the ashes scattered before the four winds of heaven, that no more remembrance might be had of so vile and wicked a wretch as I' just for passing on information! :D

  3. Speaking honestly, if I could go back in time, I too might consider the possibility of assassinating Thatcher. Like yourselves, I come from a proud mining community and Thatcher was the Devil incarnate to all my friends and family during the miner's strike. Her part in the Falklands war was also despicable.

  4. Anyway, all this talk of eating down the pit has reminded me of an old joke I first heard from my Dad. I doubt whether any of you haven't heard it before and I can't remember the exact words but the theme went something like this ...


    BILLY: Y'aal reet Geordie marra. Wud y like a bullet? Aa got them from the bottom shop t'other day.

    GEORDIE: Aye, aa wadn't mind Billy. Wot are they?

    BILLY: Sugared Almonds, Geordie.

    GEORDIE: Ah, sorry Billy mate, aa divn't care too much for the sugar.


    A couple of days later ...

    BILLY; Fancy a bullet Geordie?

    GEORDIE: Not if they're them sugary things ye had t'other day Billy.

    BILLY: Ner, tha's nee sugar on these Geordie.


    So Geordie takes a handful and munches on them ...

    GEORDIE: Almonds, and they're very tasty marra. Did ye get these at another shop then?

    BILLY: Ner. They're wot aa had t'other day but aa've sucked aal the sugar off them!

  5. I have to admit that I too have a problem with Islam as an ideology, even though I count Muslims among some of my friends.

    I don't have the educational skills or the verbal eloquence of some posters in here, but I know mind control when I see it.

    Muslims are locked into a religion, for life, mostly. They leave upon pain of death. It's even been said that many suicide bombers are in fact genuinely suicidal and, seeing as taking your own life is forbidden in Islam, they take the 'martyr' route, which allows them to exterminate themselves with the full backing of Mohammed and their religious leaders, along with the bonus of 36, or 72, or whatever the current number of virgins is, thrown in for their efforts.

  6. I remember my Dad taking his bait to the Dr. Pit for him and Taffy, his pit pony.

    His marra always took something 'posh,' like Spam, which the lads called 'pink lint' I believe.

    I'm sure most of you know that Cornish pasties were taken down the tin mines for bait, and the ridge of crust provided a means of holding the pasty with dirty hands without affecting the filling. This was important because the ore often contained arsenic as well as tin.

    ‘And wouldn’t you know it – it looks like Richard Gutjahr, the same Zionist photo-propagandist who was pre-positioned to film the Nice truck attack is now pre-positioned in Munich as well!

    What are the odds that a guy with the background of Richard Gutjahr – married to a leading Israeli black operator – would “just happen to be there” to film the very beginning of the Nice truck attack AND today’s shooting at the Olympia Mall in Munich, Germany? Coincidence theorists will have a field day with this!

    “The cameraman apparently pre-placed on the balcony to film the beginning of the truck attack is German journalist and blogger named Richard Gutjahr…who just happens to be married to Israeli potentate Einat Wilf, a former Israeli Intelligence Officer in Unit 8200 who served as foreign policy advisor to Shimon Peres, strategic consultant to MacKenzie and Co. in New York, and a general partner in Core Venture Capital in Israel. In 2007 she ran for the presidency of the World Jewish Congress. (The presence of highly-placed Israelis and friends in strategic positions to film terror events is getting out of hand…we saw the same thing with the Charlie Hebdo and Brussels Airport events.)”‘

    A spent nearly an hour typing in a post following the last one,late last night,and it wouldn't save,and I lost the whole lot!


    HPW, I use Firefox browser and have added an extension called 'Textarea Cache' which is very simple in operation. It places a small icon in the bottom status bar of the browser and tracks everything you type. If your post disappears you can simply click on the icon which fetches up a dialogue box where you can copy the text you just entered, like this ...



  9. One thing I love about my Android phone is the call recording app I put on it. It runs in the background and you never know it's there, but it records every call I make or receive, great for someone like me with a memory like a ... em,  one of those er, things, er, you know, with the holes in them .....

    About once a week I clear out the calls I no longer wish to keep so they're not using up memory. It will even record stuff when I access my voicemail so that I can clear the voicemail but still have a copy should I need it at a later date.

  10. I see the UK families of the Iraq war dead have set up a crowd-funding site to raise money to prosecute the b@st@rd.

    They reached their goal of £50,000 in the FIRST 9 HOURS!

    They now have an extended goal of £150,000 which I hope they will also soon reach. https://www.crowdjustice.co.uk/case/chilcot/

    Personally, I think it's all wrong that Blair will be defended with our tax money while the families have to raise their own.
