  1. They have electric bikes, cars, buses, vans, trains & trams, but I've never heard of an electric tractor. I'm thinking they'd be impractical with them chugging up & down fields pulling farm gubbins all day, if they run out of juice & conk out in the middle of a muddy field you can't just take a can of diesel/petrol/paraffin & away you go again. Maybe they could tow a generator behind them to charge their batteries up, yeah that's a good idea init. Oh. Wait...
  2. I like the Boston Pops orchestra as they instrumentalise (is that a new word?) many pop songs.. I remember doing a slow dance at Bestwood Welfare Sunday night disco with a pretty girl to Move Closer by Phylis Nelson, & when the line "move closer, move your body much closer" came on she did, & that turned out a very pleasant night if you know what I mean...
  3. The song with nonsense lyrics but brilliant tune & beat I like is Justified & Ancient by the KLF & Tammy Wynette. "All bound for moo-moo land" & "he drives an Ice cream van." No idea what they mean but a fun song IMO...
  4. Cant say I ever really listen to the lyrics of a song, it's more the melody/tune I like, I very often prefer the instrumental version. There used to be some groups (Baron Knights were one IIRC) that made up funny lyrics to pop songs: one that made me laugh was a take on 'Tossing & Turning' by the Ivy League, it went "What's that funny smell something is burning." Us Trent Bridge school kids turned it into "What's that funny smell someone has farted." Most of the last 10 years stuff leaves me cold, though I like some of George Ezra's songs; Paradise being one, we do a line dance to that, I usually mess it up though as it's a bit fast, lol...
  5. I have no kids either, been out with a couple of girls who had kids but they'd drive me loopy after a while. Got a mental cat called Pix who drives me loopy though, lol...
  6. A while ago a neighours kid was throwing his ball near the window: his Mam said "don't do that, you might break the window,!" He carried on, then she said "right that's it!" & I thought "ooh, now he's going to get a biffing!" But she started counting = 1,2,3, etc & that was it. If my Mam had said "don't do that!" & I did, a biffing would have followed straight away...
  7. On an Australian soap my Wife watches there is a totally obnoxious horrible kid who does the most despicable things with & smug look on his clock, he said "I know they cant do anything about it!" & Erensborough High school is at a loss what to do with him. It frustrates me to watch it as I know in my day he'd have received a very sore backside. I know it's fiction but things like this must happen in real life...
  8. I was asleep & woke up with something in my mouth, in my half sleep l Crunched down on whatever it was & swallowed it, I realised it was probably a spider & ran into the bathroom coughing & heaving but couldn't bring it up. Took me ages to get back to sleep.. Saw loads of lizards when I was in Florida a few months ago, they'd eat the black ants but they didn't go near the red ants though, think they were fire ants I'd read about...
  9. My first car (Triumph Herald) was GAY 585B, I never noticed the plate when I bought it but my mates did, they extracted the urine big time. Other spellers I've had are AVO, JOB, ORA, OCH & my present one UGZ. Keep saying I'll treat myself to a no year Northern Irish plate, seen IIG + four numbers quite cheap on a plate site...
  10. Was dreaming last night I'd been caught playing nick (truant) & was about to be caned: I woke up & slowly remembered I am a fully grown up adult (wife disagrees with me claiming to be grown up though) & no one will ever cane me again. It seemed so real, can't remember which teacher was going to dish out the beats though, hope it wasn't Marciniak as it would have really hurt if he did it, lol...
  11. Forgot about sterilised milk people used to have when I was a kid in the 1960's, I'm presuming UHT has taken over from it as I haven't seen any for decades. Mam hated it but Dad & myself didn't mind it. IIRC it didn't go sour so quick as fresh without refrigeration. Remember the floating white cream on fresh milk before we had a fridge...
  12. I couldn't care less what sort of milk I use in my tea, it can be full cream, semi skimmed, skimmed; fresh, UHT, condensed, evaporated or powder'd. My wife likes fresh in coffee but doesn't mind UHT on her corn flakes, I usually use UHT as it has a long life, my mate Gordon thinks I should be shot for using anything else but fresh full cream. What do others prefer?
  13. I remember yabbering to a vintage tractor owner at a traction engine rally, he demonstrated a cold start: He started & then warmed it up on petrol, then switched over to paraffin where it ran perfectly, the exhaust was a bit smelly though, was like the old paraffin heater we had when I was a kid. Paraffin was then cheaper than petrol, not sure if it still is though...
  14. Aldi are selling proper cold water gell laundry detergent, seems OK & it's pretty cheap too, been using it for past couple of weeks...
  15. Bought some trousers half price: Got them home & they only had one leg..... I'll get me coat on the way out....
