    yes, peter it is very difficuilt to convey irony by the written word, which is my favourite form of humour.

    as motley says, it is too easy to jump down a posters throat and possibly regret it before the post has been fully understood.

    Motley is correct. I did have in mind the web-based chatter type written word.

    As for glasshouse. I am afraid that he has not answered the query as to whether he really is

    an ardent Unionist Landowner who frequently visits London to dine at Whites or the Athenaeum with Banker friends, prior to travelling via the Palace to Fortnum and Masons, there to purchase tins of Cambell's beef broth to take home to Mrs Glasshouse who runs a soup kitchen for your serfs on the Glasshouse Estate of Inverbrigadoon.

     I think is only right that your readers should know!

    motley:
    I adore it when a thread kicks off on climate change, united kingdom tribal relations and other such scientific nostrums. It like Welsh and willing points to as codswollop, but I love it.
     

    Pardon ?

    You aren't making much sense Motley ! I may not be a rocket scientist but I read your posts over and over and still don't know what you're on about.

    welshnwilling:

    Pardon ?

    Indeed Mea culpa, and profuse apologies. My memory was it's usual self, and served me poorly, it was peesie who said the codswollop thing.

    Oh ....and yes..... you have many times told me I make no sense. Then as I have said back before, I fail to make sense to myself.

     I am in the Rumsfeld school of communication

    I think I know what I mean etc, etc, but then there are times when I don't know what mean..........and the are unknown times and unknow meanings.

    Three wonderful rivers kept us nicely ensconced before the technology of roads - fortunately the a12 keeps people at bay still.

     East Anglia is a wonderful flat-earth place with big skies so there is much area for the understanding to diffuse too. We quite like the idea of not being to well understood. We share that in common with Bob Diamond.

    Sorry, glasshouse I think it was me - and I was only winding you up too, so is it quits?

    the way the rain is coming down, there will soon be cod walloping off the windows.

    we are all  quietly  going off our rockers !

    another piece of trivia;

    a big volcano blew in 1815 called tambora, which caused the "year with no summer" of 1816.

    the harvest failed to ripen in northern europe that year, and crops were still being harvested at christmas even in england.

    i have the bankruptcy papers filed against the tenant of this farm the following year.
