    A light hearted look on life from my viewpoint :)

    A politician giving a striaght Yes/No answer
    A shy American in a TV studio audience
    A builder who takes one sugar in his tea (it's either none or 2 or more)
    A bouncer/doorman with a sensible car
    A computer programmer admitting he's wrong
    A solicitor with his hands in his own pockets ;)

    Lots more to come, any more from the rest of you ?

    Only an introduced foreign species could do that. The British woodlice cannot. That said, I don't know what happened to the other ones.

    Of course not! All the competent IT people are smart enough to avoid promotion away from the techy stuff.

    The really smart ones are getting out of the industry these days. ;)

    That I think, says it all........... ;)

    All the pubs I used to like (ie the beer was good) have been knocked down or become 'fun pubs'. Even if the beer was award winning those places switch me off........ Kingstons a decent pub free zone now. My other most common watering places were near a certain football ground in North London. ;) Only one of them serves a decent pint now. :(

    Other than that, the pubs I used to go to in the sticks have all switched to 'keg' bar one. Tis' a poor lookout. None of the pubs in Ham (my sister lives there) serve a decent pint. Most of my mates still living down there drink either guiness or shorts in pubs because they all complain they can't a get a decent beer!

    Is that because of the woodlice clause in the forthcoming ID bill?
