Kay Burley's back on Sky after her 6-month suspension for celebrating her birthday during the lockdown, I can't believe Sky allowed her back onto the front line. What a flipping cheek quizzing politicians about covid with her record!

I posted this a few weeks ago and Kai suggested a free Chrome add on that skips most of them automatically :)

Thanks, but I'm watching (or listening) on my TV set. They've really got you by the testicles, there's not much you can do about it. :)

Absolute FA to trade tonight. Suppose there's no excuse for not doing the housework tonight.

Football on Sunday clashes with the hot weather. :(

The Queen should not be allowed to carry a sword, never mind cut a cake with it!! It's an illegal and dangerous weapon and she doesn't look safe with it.

On a similar rant, when I do my jury service I'll be strip-searched by the security girls every time I enter the building to check I'm not carrying a knife, yet Sikhs are allowed to carry a 4-inch knife for religious reasons. :?

flipping cat threw up all over my shoes by the foot of my bed shortly after I jumped into bed last night. Then she buggers off to the living room and leaves me with the smell all night!!

I'll at least credit her for jumping off the bed before chucking up.

In second thoughts, it was easier to clean leather shoes than it would have been to clean the carpet.

Clever cat!! :D

Do you not understand the irony here, Derek?

Her ancestors MADE the common laws of England, as she still does to some degree. Who are you to criticise your Monarch? You'd have been beheaded for such criticisms only a few centuries ago!

Not ancestors, predecessors. She isn't related to Henry II who crafted common law.

Scrub that. My mistake. Apple-ogeys!
