    The Good Morning Thread 5th Apr 14 at 6:17 AM
    Well, we've got a goodnight thread so let's have a good morning one as well.

    Good morning everybody
    Me and the dog have had our morning constitutional and shortly I shall be venturing forth to the big Tesco to do my fortnightly shop. When I get home I've got 3 hours work related admin and paperwork to do

    The weather here is a bit nippy but at least there's no fog.

    There could be a <insert gruff Scottish accent here> murder <end of said gruff Scottish accent> in my office in a moment.

    A colleague who had one day off yesterday spent 5 minutes moaning about how many emails she had in her in box, complaining that it had taken her ages to deal with 15 of them.... yet she doesn't mind spending 20 minutes telling others about her new phone & super charging capability!!

    What a fantabulous take-off that was yesterday!

    Whoop! Whoop! Whoop!



    Well done those Musk-rats!


    And what a glorious landing by the two side rockets!

    I gasped in delight and jumped up and down!


    And the cherry on the cake was the Tesla car on top of the Falcon Heavy, with its 'astronaut', the Bowie song and the references to "Hitchhiker's Guide"! Inspired!

    I like that man with the most peculiar name!

    Can Canadians still be knighted? If so, I think he should get a Knighthood!

    As part of the Commonwealth, Canadian citizens are theoretically eligible to receive titular honours from the United Kingdom.
    However, in 1919 Canada adopted the Nickle Resolution, which requested that the reigning monarch no longer bestow knighthoods, baronetcies or other titles upon Canadians.
    It was the beginning of a long back and forth which has resulted in a practical ban on Canadians accepting British honours.

    I forgot there was a spam emoticon!




    It means that I'm back to inadvertently pressing it again.
    Never fear, though, I always press the not spam button straight away.
    I even spammed myself once!

    It seems to happen when things are copied and pasted from certain sources, but not all.

    I did a test his morning, and one thing I copied and pasted was ok, but in another different one, there was the glitch again.

    It can happen with hyphens and full stops too.

    It just depends what you're copying and pasting.

    Good Morning All.
    I need catnip because I'm grumpy today.
    Been up a while and Murphy has stated that because I have an appointment, I can't go back to bed even if I'd like to ...

    An afternoon nap is beckoning already ....
