No its not paying the air fare; its the crap antique furniture we sell in
old, tired and conservative Tunbridge Wells.
I have had 4 bottles (pints) on Black Sheep Ale - a pale ale and, not quite,
a bottle of Chardonney. So everyone around me can go away or piss off.
Surely, I don't 'ave to be perfect every bloody day of the year!
I'm enjoying a fine Heineken, chilled mind you, and served in a
frosted mug. I don't know how you guys can drink it warm, but it's now
about 1730 Zulu so I'm guessing you're probably full of holiday cheer

Well Bobby, glad "Nahm" visited your part of the world and that PBS
(the public TV on this side of the pond) gets his shows on air in the
UK from time to time. I was compelled to write as for christmas my
bride got me a DVD of all 12 Fawlty Towers episodes from the BBC, and
as much as I enjoy Nahm, I am a great fan of John Cleese of Monty
fame, or is it Sir John, gee, they just knighted Mick Jagger so they
must have knighted Cleese, or they should have by now. From my point
of view, a trade of Nahm for Basil is better than even. Merry to all
and happy new year. Mutt.
P.S. oh, and Piss Off..... :-) [I love that phrase....just as good
as kiss my arse......]
Thanks mate or as you say, "buddy". It is not often I am told to "piss off"
being a middle manager at work. But I bet people who I work with say it
under their breath to me.
Yes, I am a "Nahm" fan. Maybe I will nominate him for a knighthood for
services to the tool industry. He has a tool and a jig for everything. You
yanks, on TV and on rec.woodworking, are well advanced on DIY.
No, sorry, mate, John Cleese is not a "Sir". The nearest he got to being a
"Sir" was playing the part (Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington in Harry
Potter, was it?) Or was it when he said, "That Sir, is an EX-parrott". I
am sure where that phrase comes from.
Mick Jagger got his knighthood, to the surprise of many, for services to
international music (and not for shagging women).
I am not too sure about trading Nahm for Basil. I think I will stick to
Norm for the moment.
So your bride got you a DVD of all 12 Fawlty Towers episodes from the BBC.
Hang about, Mutt, Basil was henpecked i.e. under Sybils thumb, is your
bride trying to show you the way to go? Are you sure you would trade Nahm
for Basil? (Just kidding).
Happy New Year, mate.
Should you stumble upon a wheelchair-bound lawyer by the name of Andrew
King, please invite him to smooch my bloody arse, and kindly inform
him that Melinda and her new hubby are quite comfy.
And happy new year to you Kevin and, of course, Melinda. Sounds as if you
have given up the informative rec.woodworking and the super DIYer Norm and
have been in our spa town Royal Tunbridge Wells. Tough luck, mate.
The only wheelchair bound solicitor that I know is Andrew Bruce and he come
from Sussex, I beleive. I cannot find your Andrew King, see:
http://www.solicitors-online.com/ RTW has a prefix postcode of TN1 or TN2".
Anyway, mate, I hope you have had a good Christmas and will have a good new
I'm a Yank and I'm sorry to hear about
the Queens mishap to her little dog, I know how she feels. I was just a
kid when she became Queen and I've always thought she was a very nice lady.
Merry Christmas to you.

The Quenn is into field sports like fox hunting, pheasant shooting, pigeon
racing, horse riding and so on, so I dare say one dog against another is
just like a bit of sport to her.
Come to think about it: the corgi (Queens dog) comes from Wales (a country
with its own langauage bolted onto the left side of England; home to Tom
Jones,Catheine Zeta-Jones, and so on) and the pit bull terrier (Princess
Anne's dog) comes from .... errr ummmm the States. What a bugger for
international relations! And what a Christmas day for us. The nation is
now in grief.
Thanks Brooks! Happy new year.
Well, you forgot us Canucks, but Merry Christmas just the same, pity
about the Corgi.
I was in Winnipeg in the late 70's when the Pythons did their "1st
Farewell Tour" across Canada, and saw them live at the concert hall.
Fantastic show, and of course when the curtain closed we were all on
our feet yelling for more.
They came back and did the "Dead Parrot" sketch, then left the stage
Once again, we were all on our feet applauding and screaming "Encore!
After about 5 minutes, the projector came on and a slide reading "PISS
OFF!" was projected.
After we stopped laughing, we indeed pissed off.
All the best, Bobby!
I was sent a Christmas present from a friend in West Virginia - a
Conmfederate flag. It now flys happily over my front gate. From other
postings it sounds as though the war may be over. Who won?
