    I'm being offered "50+ Singles".

    That seems a bit excessive.

    One or two would do - three at the most.

    The British Medical Association has over two hundred and thirty dedicated advisers ready to help me with problems in my working life, particularly those associated with my on-call contract.


    I might give them a call later.

    It is being suggested that I need horse deodorant.

    A little bit over-personal...

    Keep getting targeted advertising for Deliveroo on here - they're starting up in Stafford. Next it'll be 'Just Gorge'

    Back in the day the advertisers would have someone sidle up to you and whisper in your ear "BEEE O."

    (And if you can remember that advert, you're older than you're letting on ….. :heyhey:)

    I'm being urged to obtain cash by selling my Anatoly Karpov books.




    I must have a look and see if I've got any.

    I'm being offered a wide selection of digger buckets.

    I would probably need all the other bits as well, though.

    Now, are you sure that the other bits aren't where the Ikea screws were hiding? ;)

    The horse-based theme continues.

    My current offer is for a mobile service which will wash, disinfect, repair and reproof my horse rug on site.

    They must have some serious data analysis going on here - as I do actually have a horse rug!

    I found it in the road about two years ago and left it on the front wall for a few days, but it was never retrieved, so it is now in the shed, for emergency use.

    It does look clean enough to me, though.

    The NHS is currently very determined to make sure that I don't accidentally claim for a 'free' prescription - "if you do so, even by mistake, you can be fined".

    So, henceforth, I shall check every morning that I have not got (even) younger during the night.

    Be careful out there.

    You wont believe this but I was offered a six week course in dancing the Argentinian Tango !!!! (I shit you not.) :eek:

    I mean … come on … six weeks !!!! After a bottle of rum I can dance any dance you care to name …. (although they do all look a bit similar, and there's some acrobatics and gravitational collapse thrown in for variety.)
    :monkeydance:
