Alan Coren did the older James Bond in one line
'James Bond tensed in the darkness and reached for his teeth

Friesday!; and not a chip sight! Weather was not to my liking so stayed in again, and made up for it with Smoked Cod and parsley sauce from the freezer, but still no chips!
I must stop procrastinating and fire up the Hot Air fryer.
What a pleasant coincidence that “The Oldie” should publish the James Bond joke so soon after you showing you’re partial to cocktails; shaken, not stirred, I assume!?
And I assume your Significant Other would not be reaching for his teeth, no matter how tense!
Terribly depressing day today watching TV footage of all the fallen gum trees up there in the hills, some very old and 5ft. diameter. Emergency services on the go with chain saws clearing all the fallen trees off roads, houses, fallen power lines.
Many homes, at least those left standing, won’t get power back until next week.
On top of all that we had views of floods after all the rain and all the damage caused to homes and shops with mud everywhere,
Tragically two people have died as a result, drowned, trapped in their cars with water up to roof height in many cases
Now there are the old arguments about “green Councils” not allowing owners to remove potential situations resulting in catastrophes such as last year’s bush fires and now storm damage.
But you’re obviously familiar with this sort of thing, although it does tarnish the myth of Australia, land of sun, sand and surf!
rafichagran Passing an MOT test was always cause for celebration, I take it they are still required annually, unlike here where they are only carried out in order to effect a
legal sale to a private purchaser, although that does act as a guarantee to the purchaser that the vehicle is roadworthy,
If trading it in to a dealer, then no roadworthy certificate is required.
The police can also pull over any vehicle they think is dodgy such as dragging its exhaust pipe along the road plus sparks!
Aveline You speak in riddles or maybe Code!
What “embarrassing name and royal gran” am I supposed to understand?
Double doco on railways this evening with a repeat of the Waverley to Maillog, not the steam Jacobite plus a new Chris Tarrant in the frozen wastes of Transylvania, investigating Dracula legends. Shock, Horror!
Which reminds me! What’s happened to the Two-Wit, Two Woo thread during my absence? Perhaps they’re all cured of insomnia!
Thanks for enquiring about Finn. Haven’t seen him yet He’s doing well I’m told and photos have been promised!
I’m hoping lockdown restrictions will have eased sufficiently for him to travel here for his first birthday!
Announced today that Brisbane is favourite to host the 2032 Summer Olympic Games, which is good news as they will coincide with my 103rd birthday! and we could score free accommodation if No.2 Son, Neil and family haven’t relocated.
Dream on , Rufus!
