Re: What book are you reading

Just coming to the end of this.

Yes, I know. High Fantasy. Sword and Sorcery. Dragons. Magic jewels. Save the world…blah-blah-blah. :yawn:

But this one is…a bit different. It has challenged my perceptions of the genre. I shall say no more!

Re: Christmas Lights and Snow Flurry on Forum

^^^ Pleased you’re pleased!

My own plans were severely scuppered as well. Got my E-ticket for Cyprus in an email yesterday. Can’t wait to walk along the seafront again. Special place!

PS. I’ve still got the hat enabled, as it’s quite cool and unobtrusive. The rest are gone.

Much better today, just a slightly sore arm. I shall go for a sauna later!

Re: Nims Dai Project Possible documentary airing on Netflix

If you are interested in this, you might well enjoy Reinhold Messner’s book. First ascent of Everest without oxygen; first solo ascent of Everest; and of course first person to complete the 14. Took a lot longer than Nims of course, but things have moved on since then. 030BCB36-3A48-4AD6-838E-069FDE...

Re: Coronavirus Vaccine.

Our symptoms have pretty much mirrored yours Steve. It seems to be a fairly common reaction, Malcolm. Certainly a number of my friends have experienced similar. My first two injections were AstraZeneca, and after the second one I had nothing really except soreness at the injection site. The first o...

That’s a nice stablemate for your GMT. They look good together. It’s good to get a bit of brand variety in the box. :thumbup:

The Christmas Cracker Jokes Thread!

The Christmas Cracker Jokes Thread! Dead simple, as the title suggests – do your worst! There are three rules: 1. Forum guidelines – jokes you could share with the little ones at the table. 2. They have to be really bad – proper cracker jokes. As cheesy as a fridge full of Stinking Bishop, Gorgonzol...

Re: Christmas Lights and Snow Flurry on Forum

Oh, don’t get me wrong, Des! Your friendly neighbourhood Admin Team likes nothing better than a few seasonal baubles, bits of tinsel and the like. We spend 11 months in an eager frenzy of anticipation, especially the 3-year-old. But believe it or not (and I know this will come as a shock to you) we ...

It seems the snow is back, but not the lights. As downer said yesterday, you can disable any or all in your User Control Panel.

Re: Coronavirus Vaccine.

I had the Moderna booster yesterday. I felt okay until last night then my arm became sore; I slept fairly well but feel washed out and sort of aching this morning, quite similar to my first jab. If that is any guide I should probably feel better by the end of the day. There are plenty of nice things...

There was one in 2019, I think. :wink:

Seriously, Andrew, your good taste and decorum extend far beyond watches. You have made a fantastic contribution to the forum; long may you continue to do so. :clap:
