  1. How's your day?

    Very nice WW. I just got around to listening to these two renditions. Never really listened to much Chopin.
  2. How's your day?

    My brain is fried Denshaw. It must be this bug I've got. That's my excuse anyway. . Thanks anyway.
  3. How's your day?

    To the mods. Thanks for deleting my earlier post. Amazing how the English language can have different connotations in another country. I will watch out for that in future.
  4. How's your day?

    You are right. Back to how's your day? Mine is still not great. Fighting the Crud. Feel like I've been thumped by a two by four. Headache, cough, tight chest etc.. I'm about ready to go and lay down for a bit.
  5. How's your day?

    Let the bragging continue. If all three are ever out of commission we've got woods out the back.
  6. So true, Phil. So true. We have a friend in Canada who was asked to give a speach at a church social about growing up in the war years in the UK. They had a guy whose job. It was every a.m to go around to the workers houses and bang on the window with a stick to wake them up. He was the knocker up. She said I could not understand the look on these ladies faces when I told them I got knocked up every morning.
  7. How's your day?

    We now live in a house with three. Commodes, I mean. I don't say that to brag in some way. It is quite common in lots of houses now. You are never far from one. Never need to bang on a door yelling 'Urry up' Lol. Wish I could teach the dogs to use one. It would save me letting them in and out. Days of the Po are ancient history.
  8. Maybe over there it has another meaning now I come to think of it, Margie. Here it simply tends to mean a person who runs around with a gang intent on causing trouble of various kinds. If it has other connotations there and offends you please accept my apologies. I'd remove it but I can't edit it now. If a mod wants to delete it that is ok with me.
  9. They'd think I was an ode gang banger, Col. .
  10. Cigarette cards

    Gets 5 mpg too.
  11. How's your day?

    I think we must have been low class, Chulla. We never called it the 'Jerry'. It was the Po. Or the guzunder. Used to hate it when I worked for the EMEB and we would find one under the bed when we had to take a floorboard up in a bedroom to pull wire. We used to move 'em VERY carefully. Aaah! the lovely memories NS brings back. I'd laugh if I could do it without coughing me 'ead off.
  12. How's your day?

    Thanks, Carni. I don't know Chanson Tryst, but I'll look it up. One of my favorites is Bach's "Come Sweet Death" Sounds terrible I know, but it is actually a very encouraging piece of music, not to mention beautiful. I can actually play that too. Making a big fuss of the dogs helps too and they like it. Edited to add. Found it on YT. Spelling threw me. It is Chanson Triste. By Tchaikovsky. Nice. No arrangement for Organ though. Could probably get by on two manuals without pedals. Harder than it sounds though.
  13. Enjoying owt on the box lately ?

    Bit close to reality by the sounds of it, Margie. I don't mean the meteorite per se. Rather, I mean a complete lack of transparency. I reached a point a while ago where I have given up on truth from the powers that be. Example: we are regaled every night with news about the terrifying spread of the flu across America. Emergency rooms overrun. Folks dying. etc etc. ad nauseum. A natural health website that I read said that where sample from 'flu victim are tested only 15% show positive for 'flu. That leads to at least two questions. 1. is this true or not? 2. If it is not the 'flu, what is it and where did it come from? I guess I'll just go and hide under the bed with the dust bunnies.
  14. Enjoying owt on the box lately ?

    My dad used to take me to see some of those old sci-fi. Films at the Regal in Carlton during the fifties. Some of 'em scared me. I was only a pup. Mind you, the projector broke down quite a bit, much to the jeers and groans of the audience, along with shouts of purrapenny in. I seem to remember 'Devil Girl from Mars.' Now if all Martians looked like her it wouldn't have been so bad.
  15. How's your day?

    I think I'll just go and play some funereal music on the organ. Makes me feel better.
