We call it Karsk, and I have a theory that it's because that's the sound you make when you drink it.
I have a theory that the only reason you put the coin in is in order to have to disinfect it with moonshine

I'll bring a bottle of this, just to spice things up a bit:

What about the supplies for your friends in the fire brigade you will be bringing?

Nono, it's to gauge the correct proportions of moonshine to coffee.

You're just a little bit off - collect infers I keep them. Guy with the pawn shop in Poiters collects them.

I buy them, use them for a while and sell them to get another. Keepers seem to have an 'X' somewhere (KLM) or they're digital, meaning they depreciated beyond reselling before they came off the UPS truck.

Lenses are another matter entirely. Especially lenses from the 70's.

OK ... so maybe I have a small problem.

At least I acknowledge this it's a possible problem ... that's the first step isn't it ?!

And it's my precious thrift store that's the "enabler" ... how can one say "non" to this for a fiver ????!!!! (xpost)






Ooops ... gear talk.

Désolé
... but there's a swap next Sunday and guess who's going to trade this away for something else nice ... maybe something hociR ?

I could resist. I already have an MX in nicer looking condition. A very good SLR that I greatly enjoyed using.


And now Seppi vs Kyrgios is 2 sets all, and Kyrgios 3:0 in 5th set.

Kyrgios just won. Lost first two sets, and then won 3 sets, with the last going to 8-6. Bit of tension.

Yeah, sure. Trying to fool us about the weather, for those who are truly gullible. I'm not falling for it. Sun in Scotland?
Oh yea of little faith!

Just had a few days dry very cold sunny weather this here in Strathclyde with crisp snow covering the ground. Absolutely beautiful and on my door step too! Didn't bother taking pictures…..just enjoyed it with my granddaughters. There is a great hill for sledging nearby, also some parkland which made lovely crunchy noises when walking or running over the light covering of very crisp snow.

Careful. There's Yanks lurking about here and they may raise a great ballyho about spelling sledge correctly.

I know that they can't spell, but do they get ticked off by correct spelling, too? I wouldn't think they'd notice, really, not knowing what's correct in the first place.

I know. All this talk about cars for instance and they probably don't know their boot from their bonnet.
