  1. I always suspected Hitler was...………. Nah, he was...…. F@ck him up the wrong hole, with a new wire brush.
  2. To be honest, I just like a boiled egg on toast. Dress an egg all you like, I prefer just an egg. Poached eggs are lovely too. I hope eggs are carbon neutral? If not, I may be eating grass like North Koreans.
  3. Bruce and I shared PMs on Scotch eggs. No Bruce, they weren't born in "God's Country", they were resurrected by Normans. So don't blame we Saxons for stealing owt. They were claimed by Fortnum and Mason as it's creation, but the original concept seems to come from the middle east. These days, if Rowena buys them from L:dl ,Ald~ or tisco , I peel the sh1te off and eat the egg. The M&S ones are a bit better, poached egg inside, quite nice covering.
  4. Is the watch working?

    My Mother was a quality control checker at Bellstaff, Longton, in the 1970's. Until she contracted Leukaemia and had to walk away. Are the Bellstaff jackets still keeping the rain out? She would hope they are.

    A pair of Converse All Stars high tops to go with my low tops, got to love old school.
  8. If people want this forum to become an "internet democracy", I suggest they ask Roy to relinquish it and take over the financial burden. Roy pays for your ability to post here, don't consider this place to be an alternative to face@@@@. I Suspect Roy makes little profit from the forum, he once suggested that he would shut it down because of the trouble it caused him. I honestly don't know why Roy still pumps his money into this forum. The only reason that comes to mind is his love of like minded watch lovers. Let's be respectful of the forum and the person who pays for it, otherwise, we might lose it.
  9. Wonderful, congratulations.
  10. Happy New Year to all members, however far afield. Stay safe and well in 2020, and beyond.
  11. Yes, I fancied a vintage Rolex Oyster, but I can't justify the cost. I don't like the ones with "Mercedes" hands, I'm on record for that choice.

    Merry Christmas.

    My best wishes to all members of the forum Not just about watches, we all have a few. Stay safe and have a good time, my friends.
  14. Has a decent movement, unlike many quartz watches.

    A woolly hat and gloves, it's Winter, yet again.

    A refurbished Henry HVR 160 II from MyHenry- UK. It was bound to happen. Rowena said "another vacuum cleaner?". I told her I was sick of getting covered in sh!t when I emptied the bagless ones in the bin in our windy back yard. Bearing in mind, she hasn't used a vacuum cleaner in years, she didn't argue. I banned her from using one when she tried to vacuum up water with a Hoover Junior in the 1980's.

    Shark are quite good by the reviews on the Tube, but I haven't seen one yet (come one family ).I don't know how good (or bad) they are. There isn't a perfect vacuum cleaner at this point in time, despite Mr Dyson's claims. Nothing is perfect, certainly not vacuum cleaners. But some I take a fondness of my friend.

    The DC59 is a v6 with a different motor(if Dyson is to be believed). I have two V6's and they are good at what they do.   I suspect you used yours almost exclusively on standard power setting, that's why you got such a long life out of the battery.   On high power (MAX), Dyson batteries get hot. The cells (normally Samsung) are designed for such high power output, but it reduces the life span of the battery.   If you got a third party battery it will certainly not be of Dyson's original spec and will best be used on standard power only. Imho, of course.
  20. I don't know what my vintage watches and my G Shocks say about me, however, I've never consider a watch a status symbol. Good luck to the watchmakers, I have a completely unique and original Roy Taylor watch.
  21. I doubt Cassie would be bothering with that.
  22. Rowena will insist on calling them blouses.

    They are John, but don't get me started on vacuum cleaners.
