Everybody knows Alan Turing who cracked the enigma codes
But nobody knows his sister Kay, who provided all his snacks, sandwiches and drinks
Started this off directly in the GN message box and it wasn’t long before it disappeared. That’ll larn me!
Expecting phone calls from B’mouth and Bideford, it’s nearly 11.00pm so it could be a late bedtime!
Jaxjacky If you can mention Brussels Sprouts surely French beans is OK!/
We used to grow those as an early crop before the runners kicked in; they were all enjoyable and when a bumper crop occurred Vera had all the vacuum jars out, bottling the surplus and we often still had plenty to give away.
Now I’m giving away lemons! Very good season! Vera was a whizz at lemon meringue and neighbour Jan is helping to reduce the stockpile and filling me up with lemon sponges.
What’s going on with deletions? Even light-hearted threads disappear for no apparent reason and even the “Jokes” thread is sadly lacking in material. Can’t all be blamed on Covid surely?
You don’t know what you’ve got untill it’s gone.
This month (NOT the “sober” one) , during the last week, marks the 7th anniversary of Greatnan’s tragic death due to a fall in the French Alps where she lived. She left a marvellous legacy of jokes and amusing anecdotes.
I’d loved to have had chats with her; whilst browsing today I came across another thread (759 posts) titled “Just Jokes” with many supporters joining in, some of whom are still around I see!
A “Festival” of her material to commemorate the event might be nice to compile.
Man. United fans are not smiling much, I imagine!. Only consolation is that the Scousers can’t laugh!
We had a Zoom session run by ladies from the local Council discussing on-line shopping for groceries, fresh meals, fresh vegies and groceries etc. but it doesn’t seem to be a good idea for people on their own when you factor in a delivery charge of $10. And when he used a $97 bottle of Shiraz as an example, I thought this is out of my depth!., saying I could get 12 bottles of Cleanskin Shiraz for that money!
Granddaughter in Bideford has just finished her “brief” call after 58 minutes; it’s now 1.00am.!
We’ll have to re-calibrate again at the end of the month and avoid the risk of a 3.00 am call.
Definitely need my beauty sleep so’
