  1. Nothing "dramatic"! Giving my laptop away, so I'm going to be incommunicado for a good while, that's all!
  2. Yes, it's farewell from me to the Forum and members....it's time for us to part company. A member since sometime in 2004, I suppose I've read many thousands of posts over the years, sometimes with admiration, sometimes with amazement, and not always in agreement! But that's what a forum is for, is it not?! Continued success to the new forum owners, and good health to all the many members.
  3. That's fantastic, SFBeca! Thanks very much! Gladys really is a star, and a credit to her employers and her profession. That's terrific news. Many thanks to the SF team.

    Fancy A Run?

    And even more creepiness! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71hDy4Hhuso Looks very strange....
  5. Today? Both "Truth" and "Beck-ola" albums by the Jeff Beck Group, and "Long road out of Eden", Eagles....
  6. I can confirm that the over-65 with no underlying health problems Mrs.RR had her first Pfizer jab last Tuesday, and doesn't play for Chesterfield FC. That said, she may be better than most of their current squad....
  7. Chicane : a piece of bondage paraphernalia. (So I understand)
  8. Yes...my better half had her first Pfizer last week.
  9. The safest way to deal with an incoming call which might just be genuine - for instance, if they're asking you to confirm a reference number - is to consider that they already know what the information is, and who you are, otherwise they wouldn't be ringing. In that case, agree with them that you'll give (say) 2/3 letters or numbers and make them confirm the others. Any errors, then put the phone down. If it's a genuine call, it serves two purposes - it proves to you that they say who they are, and proves to them that they haven't mis-dialed the wrong person. Same if your address is requested - give them partial information, but insist they give you the rest. If they refuse, or are unable to complete, cut 'em off.
  10. Soporific : A really scary slice of bread dipped in gravy.

    Steady boy...steady.... 🦴

    Fancy A Run?

    Don't fancy having a crack at it, then?!
  13. I'd rather have a good meat and potato pie!
  14. We came to an agreement when we were both 40 - we decided we really couldn't be bothered! Nearly 30 years later, we're still happy!
  15. I'd like to nominate the staff at Heeley Bank Care home - in particular, Gladys - who cared for my mum-in-law with end-of-life care from May '20 until her demise in January '21. Above and beyond, as they say...
  16. ....And if I mentioned sex at 69 to my better half, she'd think I'd gone ga-ga!
  17. Had to smile at some of the comments... My old mum used to say that my dad was having "prostrate" trouble, whenever he tried to avoid doing something straight away. Took me a long time to figure out what the difference between prostrate and prostate was!
  18. Arris : In architecture, an arris is the sharp edge formed by the intersection of two surfaces. (See also "Icehole", post #353)
  19. Although she's already commented - and blushed?! - at your suggestion, I'd like to re-open the campaign on behalf of Nikki Red. As you say, her last year must've been horrendous, so we could argue that she accepts the award on the NHS's behalf. She/the mods have also lost one of "their own" - Mort - in the last few weeks, so perhaps she would accept it on behalf of the admin/mods as well.
  20. Arsenic : Should've stuck with the wax method rather than use the razor. Icehole : Where inuits kick you when you park in their EV charging spot.
  21. I had the Pfizer jab at my local surgery early last Sunday morning, and my wife had her first there yesterday afternoon. Yesterday was busier, as the surgery had been told to pause innoculating until next Monday. Their supplies of vaccines were being re-routed to a London borough instead, so our surgery had to call a halt to their planned daily progress.
