    I have just finished my first ever box set binge!

    I watched Keeping Faith, which was brilliant! Now I am regretting not watching it in Welsh when it was on first.

    I can never understand why some of our brilliant Welsh comedy and drama, in English, rareley makes national TV. Keeping Faith was on iPlayer and the UK has missed out on High Hopes and Satellite City!

    Maybe they need to join an onion. Apparently pronounced oh-nion!

    Now, seeing as Ireland has been mentioned ... I have a question:

    Q - Why has South Africa got diamonds and Ireland got potatoes?
    A - After scratching me head (and other places) for some time, I can only assume that perhaps Ireland had the first choice.


    Just to balance things out so as not to cause a fence, here's an Englishman joke:

    Q - What do you call an Englishman under a wheelbarrow?
    A - A mechanic

    'Ere, what are you doing here so early?

    Good morning Pyxis
    At home presently .... shortly to commence my green tea making duties for her Ladyship.

    Debating whether to give myself a "Forum Free Friday" again for no specific reason other than it sounds 'rhymy' . As I'm here already though, probably isn't going to happen!

    You feeling any better?

    Sorry, nit-picking mode kicks in early in my bwain!

    No, when you said 'propping up the bar', I thought you meant the bar as in pub bar!

    Anyway, it can't be a forum-free Friday, 'cos it's Friday and you're on the Forum!
    Ooh, I could nit-pick for England, I could!



    Am about 60% better today. For the moment. I say that, because it's up and down.

    Alliterative .... couldn't think of the term! Thank you

    Yes I did mean (this) pub bar and not Wetherspoons!

    Ok, so I have now decided on FFFF which stands for:
    Fairly Free Forum Friday.

    Tomorrow is Shaturday, any ideas for allitery things?
