    I noticed there were dresses in the window when we went past last night, good work.

    Every now and then I see something and just have no idea what it is.

    Someone I know was donating one of these things to Katharine House this afternoon.

    A horizontal steel mesh cylinder.

    It looked too light to be some sort of combustion-related device. I would never have worked out what it was without asking.


    It's a head band display stand, for those who also are out-of-the-loop.

    I thought it was an excercise wheel for a grossly obese hamster, but then realised it won't revolve. It must be for a lazy bastard hamster.

    No wonder he was always so angry. That must've hurt.

    There was a suggestion that it might be a cage to keep fairies in....

    Just had a bottle of this. Actually a very decent fix for £1.25 (B&M) if you like your blondes !! Screenshot_2018-04-01-14-53-21.png

    I've been off the forum for quite a while - Hospital stuff and new projects - I've just spent an hour catching up with everything - sitting reading through the forum could become habit forming.

    Beware - Internet forums (fora?) can be very time consuming.

    About ten years ago (and before I joined this forum), I'd often find myself pinging between forums like a pinball. It was like perpetual motion. You go onto forum A and spend 10 minutes reading the recent stuff and maybe replying to it, before moving on to Forum B, spending another 10 minutes there before moving on to Forum C and spending another 10 minutes there ..... and then you'd be back to Forum A to catch up on the 25 minutes of new posts you'd missed while you'd been posting stuff and been on forums B and C ..... and then you'd be going round the cycle again.

    And if you get bored with that, there's always Twitter.

    And in some bad cases reading something on forum B and thinking hmm, that'd be a good reply to that thread on forum A! Now I just come here, it's easier.
