    Re: The observation and asides thread

    Got home on Monday, about 19:00, after a long day of people phoning to say that their Electric supply was off (usually because they hadn't topped up). I had just made myself comfy & turned on my PC & then got hit by a Power Cut.

    I called 105 (just as I would advise customers in similar situation) where a recorded message told me that there was a known issue & supply expected to be restored by 23:00. As it happened it only took another half hour, so good job done by them.

    That's something I had never seen mentioned, I had no idea.

    While looking it up after seeing your post I also saw "from landlines and mobiles only" as a footnote to various reserved dialing codes. I'm left wondering what alternatives there are.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    The Resister notes with dismay that had the present RAF training period applied to recruits enlisting in response to the Munich Crisis of 1938 they would still not have qualified for frontline deployment by the time World War 2 was finished, victory declared and Clem Atlee's post-war government elected. What on earth are they having to teach these would-be barnstormers nowadays? Remedial Etiquette? Reading?

    It’s debatable whether Atwood would have ever returned to Gilead but for two things: the hit TV adaptation of her 1985 novel The Handmaid’s Tale, and that Donald Trump’s administration seems to be using the original as some sort of guidebook to run the US.

    I enjoy paragraphs like that.

    I was totally gobsmacked last night during a video chat with someone who had reason to keep a photo of me when I was around twenty years old . I have a slight hole in time where there are no photos of myself ...last night I saw a sexy pretty young blonde with a figure that I would kill for these days ....................Oh youth where did you go?

    A French company has been found liable for the death of an employee who had a cardiac arrest while having sex with a stranger on a business trip.

    A Paris court ruled that his death was an industrial accident and that the family was entitled to compensation.

    Could someone outside the UK see whether the video at https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/watch/hor...istories-songs will play abroad? It's our children's TV website with, oddly enough given the accents, British actors.
