  1. We used to make wine when we lived at Eastwood. The lady next door was a member of the local wine circle and introduced to may boozy do’s - lit by candles in wine bottles; slightly inebriated folk wandering around saying “would you like to try my pea-pod?” Went to many judgings and won a highly commended for our blackberry! Somebody once gave us a marrow, and not knowing what to do with it we made some wine. It was toxic! I put it in the garden shed (more a large rabbit hutch) and shortly afterwards somebody stole it. Saved me the effort of pouring it down the sink. Often wondered what they made of it when they tried it - sore heads, sore stomachs and sore bums, I think!
  2. What constitutes a “quality” poster?
  3. Yes, Nonna. Just came back to say that! They’re running that promotion now.
  4. Best wishes Carni. Hope it’s a mild dose and clears up quickly.
  5. Free delivery, BK, and lots of movies and series to watch which is good in these lockdown times. You can cancel anytime you want so you can pay £7.99 for a month’s subscription and see how you go. We watched the newish “1917” movie the other night for free (meh!) and have just binge watched a scandi-noir series called “Those Who Kill” which was good. Give it a whirl for a month. (The “Bosch” series based on the Michael Connelly books are also good). Make sure you have a smart TV with the Amazon Prime app on it,
  6. Just got back from eye casualty. I was assembling one of those perspex front door canopies and I’d taken my glasses off so I could see what I was doing (I’m of that age!). I’d got one end of the bracket on and was bending the perspex to get the other end on, when it shot off, and propelled by the spring of the perspex, hit me right in the eye. Apparently I’ve scratched my eye all the way across, fortunately missing the pupil, but can see okay. Antibiotic ointment for 5 days, drops for a month, and go back Sunday for another look. To add insult to injury, they put something in my eye which (though I didn’t realise until I got home) stained my cheek bright orange. I’ve come home on the bus looking like bloody Coco the Clown!
  7. My daughter is a TA at in inner city school where 90% of the pupils’ parents are not British born. Some of them are touchingly thankful for the education their children are getting, and at term ends she comes home with many gifts - mostly home baked. Some of them (and it seems to be one ethic group in particular) seem quite arrogant, are all “rights and no responsibilities”, and use the school as unpaid child care. I learned, today that she is not at work at the moment. Two parents, both of whom have tested positive, have decided to have a break from their kids and have sent them to school. The children are now awaiting test results themselves, and the whole school year has been sent home. My daughter has already had one, thankfully negative, test but it makes my blood boil that she is at the mercy of such criminally selfish and arrogant people.
  8. I know you can edit a post, but can you actually cancel one?
  9. Prompted to re-read “Wolf Hall” after watching the dvd again. Exquisite stuff! “Bring Up the Bodies” next, and then hoping “The Mirror and the Light” will be out in paperback for Christmas.
  10. On the library site? I think you have to have a library account to access the magazines etc. Do you have a library card? My library membership number starts D followed by 8 numbers and is printed on my card. I think if you can find the library website where you are (where you can renew your loans), and open an account, you can access the eMagazine section. Perhaps this might help ... https://www.eastsussex.gov.uk/libraries/online/emagazines-and-newspapers/
  11. The RB Digital app is available free from the App Store and looks like this ...
  12. Errr... sort of, but not quite. I have an account with Nottingham Libraries which I only used for renewing books. The website was ... https://emlib.ent.sirsidynix.net.uk/client/en_GB/nelib On there is a section (scroll down) for eMagazines. Then I get ... “Library members can access a range of free digital magazines. You can do this from both library and home computers. There are 150 titles to choose from. You can use your smartphone, tablet or PC to read a magazine wherever you are for free.” Then a few images of magazine covers. “Follow these four easy steps to enjoy eMagazines from RBdigital: 1. Navigate to Nottinghamshire Libraries' RBdigital page. 2. Create an RBDigital account using your library card number. 3. Find and download eMagazines. “
  13. There’s some art mags on there BK. No, not THOSE kind!!!
