    Blonde jokes

    1. A blonde and a brunette were in an elevator with a man. They both noticed he had some dandruff on his shirt, but were too nice to say anything to him about it. When he finally got out two floors later, the brunette said, "Wow, somebody should give that man some Head n Shoulders" and the blonde replied, "How do you give him shoulders?" 2. A young blonde was on vacation in the depths of Louisiana. She wanted a pair of genuine alligator shoes in the worst way, but was very reluctant to pay the high prices the local vendors were asking. After becoming very frustrated with the "no haggle
  2. Some fantastic pictures here Fay, thanks for sharing them. Hoping to make it to Thailand for Songkran and this wat is definitely on my list to remind myself about after 25 years away.

    Men in my life # 2

    Soda, you're a gem - but if you rate me as "sort of handsome" ... well I think you need spectacles as much as I do, if not more :-) But thanks so much for the compliment
  4. The worrying thing is that this guy who pulled a gun was a COP!!! If the cops can't control themselves and show a bit of restraint what hope is there for others??

    Blizzard of '09

    'snow gtood, no good at all - we're getting much the same 4,000km to the east here in London, always manages to catch us out. Cue Bing Crosby singing "I'm dreaming of a shite Christmas...."
  7. Let's all go "barking" mad this Christmas :-)

    London snow

    When men were all asleep the snow came flying, In large white flakes falling on the city brown, Stealthily and perpetually settling and loosely lying, Hushing the latest traffic of the drowsy town; Deadening, muffling, stifling its murmurs failing; Lazily and incessantly floating down and down: Silently sifting and veiling road, roof and railing; Hiding difference, making unevenness even, Into angles and crevices softly drifting and sailing.Robert Seymour Bridges (1844 - 1930)

  11. Nicky, I suspect Denmark and UK are in the same cold air system - Medvedev probably aimed it at us deliberately :-)

    Dear Santa...

    You forgot the "Grinch" DVD :-)
  13. Scientifically, intense cold can cause the crystalline structire of metals to break down, resulting in metal fractures - so it IS possible to freeze the balls off a brass monkey :-) Certainly feels like it here in London :-(
  14. Interesting - similar principle to the strobe markings on a good audio turntable

    Men are like bottles of gin - one a night should be enough for any woman
  16. When Peach came over to London in October she brought me some packet Thai curry pastes the same brand (Lobo), I've been enjoying a taste of Thailand ever since :-) As always, it looks delicious Aum and I SOOOOOO love prawns in a good curry sauce
  17. Thank you Aom for allypour hard work organising it
  18. Unfortunately, like Pyotr & Gain, I won't be in LOS, but I wish everyone involved a happy and fulfilling day - especially the multiple disabled guests. Thanks to everyone who has participated so far.
  19. Shannon, the warship moored near Tower Bridge IS the one that was converted into a museum. It's name is H.M.S. Belfast and it was first commissioned into service with the Royal Navy in August 1939, less than a month before the start of World War II. It was involved in the Battle of the North Cape in December 1943, in which the German warship Scharnhorst was sunk and also saw action in the Korean War. It was retired from naval service in 1966 and towed to its present position in the Thames in 1971. So glad you enjoyed your visit to my country, please come again sometime :-)
  20. If he's so keen on lip-synching AND putting his mouth to the wrong end, I wonder what happens when he kisses his gf :-)
  21. Have a really gr8 time in Thailand Rainer - BTW I think you'll find that airlines based in the Gulf reguion, Etihad, Qatar, Emirates etc do serve alcohol. They're pragmatic enough to realise that they couldn't attract passengers if they handicapped themselves with a strict ban on it. Likewise, during the stopover in the Gulf region (I assume you're flying to the airline's base airport in the Gulf region, then flying on from there to Bangkok), they don't mind you having a drink in the airside departureor transit lounges either because technically, it's not in their national territory. Anyway
  22. One speaker right at the end: "She stands for religious freedom in America" Is THAT why several bible belt states have banned the Harry Potter movies?? She's like a sort of female George W Bush, but with only a fraction of the intelligence :-)
  23. Shannon, next time you come to London (if there is a next time) try to make it in the summer and in particular take a riverboat trip from Westminster Pier to Greenwich. You can get some really great pictures of many of the most famous sights from the river and it will give you a completely different perspective on the city. BTW, the guy in the Underground with a dog, if a ticket inspector had entered the train he would have been charged an extra fare or a ten pound fine.
  24. We'll all vote for each other guys, that's what it's all about - mutual support and most of all funds for the orphans. Thanks fellas :-)
