Re: The "I just don't get it thread".

I'm for folk believing what they like. I expect the same privilege in return. I'm a Catholic and believe in the Bible. It says: Genesis 1:27 27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. I'll stick with that. So, given that, what g...

Aaaaaaand now apparently it's LGBT....Q. Queer is no longer the verbal slur it one was and some people like to identify themselves as 'Queer'.

Cazeneuve also confirmed that six people have been stripped of their citizenship since the beginning of the...

He blamed the victims of 9/11 for being complicit in the crimes of the West that led to the attacks.

Re: The "I just don't get it thread".

Who decided, and when, that using the term "black" is acceptable whereas "coloured" isn't, and why? ... and, what's more, to now get it "wrong" and use the word 'coloured' gets the proverbial ton of bricks come down upon you. As a kid I'd NEVER have said "black" as that would have sounded properly ...

Re: Shootings and explosions in Paris this evening

It doesn't justify attacks like yesterday, despite what pillocks like Noam Chomskey might say (has he popped up yet to say they deserved it?) but I think they're counter-productive. It's an ISIS recruiter's dream. Why do you think Chomsky is a pillock? About whom do you expect him to say 'they dese...

Re: What are you watching tonight?

Any of you runners ever watched the Tom Courtney film "The Loneliness of the long-distance runner" ? . Granted, it's as much about youthful opposition to authority as running, but I seem to remember it as a good watch with running the main theme. Fair while since I saw it. Just a thought. Classic f...

They might have been right n all. Shakespeare's writing might well have been partly enabled by the 6 months enforced closure of the theatres because of a major outbreak of plague!

Re: What are you reading tonight?

I've just completed '1606' - subtitled 'William Shakespeare and the Year of Lear' by James Shapiro. This is his sequel to his multiple award-winning '1599' which tells the story of the building and opening of the Globe. 1606 was the year that Shakespeare completed three major tragedies - Macbeth, An...

In the middle of probably 5 very wet, very windy, not especially cold days. There is nothing more for it than a 6 hour slow cooked Oxtail Stew, with dumplings and jacket potato. With it a cheeky ... nay, downright impudent, possibly outright rude... Syrah. Over expensive given the cost of the food ...

Re: What are you eating and drinking tonight?

Almost all the tomatoes from the garden now gone. But 4lbs of them went into a tomato and blue cheese soup yesterday and a garlicky pasta sauce. Both delicious.

Was driving to Manchester so no wine to go with either. But would have chosen a light-medium red with either/both.
