Re: who are you?

Jeez, what Alan Ayckbourn couldn't do with this material ... !

Well, thank you, Aquablue and John Self. A comedy duo if ever there was one. You've made my day. :lol::lol::lol:

Re: Book 55: THE PROFESSOR OF DESIRE by Philip Roth

Another Roth to dig out, then. Not heard of this one before. Of all the Roths I've read, Everyman is still by far and away my favourite. Its savage, brevity and directness - especially given the...

Re: Upgrades & Improvements

Reasonable on occasions, perhaps, but frequently delivered with a spiteful slap. There was no call for that when dealing with someone who clearly struggles with forum interaction.



Oh really? ...

Re: Upgrades & Improvements

I am going to comment on Aquablue. He wasn't a troll, don't be so bloody daft. He's just someone who obviously struggles with understanding the rules of social engagement around these parts. He...

Re: Tree Huggers

Hellooooooo Oryx!

Not an internet cafe, but a very nice B&B apartment out in Gillitts, S.A. Being assaulted by the owner's two Staffordshire Bull Terriers as I type this - both trying to get on my...

Re: Tree Huggers

Freedom to squander a limited natural resource and pollute the atmosphere unnecessarily - so now that's a God-given is it?

But soon that 'freedom' will have to be taken away from those who refuse...

Re: What to do about Mugabe?

Sorry for the delay in replying, W - but in short - yes! Old lifestyle almost wrapped up, busy sorting out new one ... in wonderful African autumn sunshine at the moment. You've not missed much: it's...

Re: What to do about Mugabe?

The thing is, although something desperately needs to be done, as I mentioned in my opening post here, there is no clear and obvious solution. - and I don't see anything very optimistic as things...

Re: What to do about Mugabe?

Agreed. And never is that more evident than with what is happening in Zimbabwe.

Agreed too. The difficulty is that when actually faced with the harsh reality of such injustice and inhumanity, it's...

What to do about Mugabe?

All the fuss and talk about Boris J and the Mayor of London (http://palimpsest.org.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=3579) election is fine and completely understandable since it's happening in our own...

Oh but I can. That's what I was saying - I think we've got to the stage we're bored silly by our politicians and their pretences at leading saintly lives. I'm pretty darn sure it's BJ's...

Re: London Mayor

I'm not shocked either, John. And you're right - our Boris is tack sharp - no flies on him, despite the entertaining goofish act. To be honest, (and sorry to disagree with Digger), but I love Boris....

Re: Book 39: I AM MARY DUNNE by Brian Moore

Ha! Yes, it's not our idea of fun, either. And I guess it's wrong of me to gaily assume that most men do those sort of heavy-duty DIY jobs when the need arises, just because Mr P does.
