The Public House


This is a place to discuss news, politics, and the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, made specifically for Brits, by Brits (well, not exactly, but by the colonies). So come on in, grab a pint, and make yourself at home.

You can start commenting using Disqus as you do all over the site.  Obviously, Brits are not restricted to this room and can roam freely across the Epoch universe. Find other meeting places at Epoch Forum.

If you have a UK-specific (or not) discussion starter you wish to see, write a comment and flag it. We will take note of it. We do our best to satisfy everyone’s taste, but we do not promise to post every suggested discussion.

We trust our community to be civil and polite, but don’t test us.

    Cheerio Mates!

    • HamletsMill

      Ditto!

    • rg9rts

      FYI Kiryas Joel is trying to annex 600 acres from the town and village of Monroe in order to become its own city.

      • Richard M

        Is he related to Curious George?

        • rg9rts

          You have no idea and can’t imagine it in your worst nightmare

          • Richard M

            What are they doing beyond being sponges off the taxpayers? Because if all their cult is doing is siphoning a few millions from State coffers, I don’t see the significance. Chris Christie can shovel billions to his predatory cronies, via all sorts of schemes, payola, embezzlement and chicanery.

            And Chris Christie is one star in a sky filled with a constellation of such thieving s-k-umbag politicians.

            So tell me why one whackadoodle cult swindling a few millions is the end of civilization?

          • rg9rts

            Like I said Rich you have no idea what you are talking about! I live it daily and YOU don’t. As I wouldn’t presume to tell you about long distance driving don’t presume you have any grasp of what they are.

  • Canukistani

  • rg9rts

    Haaalllllooooooooo anyone home?

    • malta123

      Only for a min’…off out to see a man about a dog. Now there’s a quaint old fashioned Brit expression for your collection.

      • rg9rts

        And Jude sees about a horse or two

      • Cynthia W.

        Hey there. My father always said he had to see a man about a horse.I guess it’s a well traveled expression.

        • rg9rts

          New avi?

          • Cynthia W.

            Yes. We had a sort of vote on it the other day.

          • rg9rts

            You are beginning to sound like Richard M

        • malta123

          It’s a well kept secret, seein’ a man about a horse or a dog, usually means: I’m off down the pub.

      • 25sammy25

        Hi Mata – Better than shaking hands with an old friend !! lol.!! Take care.

        • malta123

          You’ll have to mail me and give me advance warning, can’t catch up with you.

          • 25sammy25

            Oh malta – Advance warning sounds ominous !! Of course I will but as you know, I only pop in for a cuppa, now it’ll be the Pub !! Tll later.

      • allison1050

        How are ya doing my friend, staying warm enough?

        • rg9rts

          Heat wave 36 and sunny high in the 40′s run around the lawn naked time……..as soon as the snow melts of course

          • allison1050

            How’d the neighbors enjoy the view? I’m here basking in about 55 degrees and I know you’re jealous!

          • rg9rts

            Rotten kid

          • allison1050

            chuckles! But only on occasion I’m slowing down.

      Hope so.

      • allison1050

        Ya better. :D

  • Denni A

    did anyone watch the “Sixties: British Invasion” this weekend on CNN.
    it started with the Beatles coming to the USA in 1964 and all the other British bands that followed after them. it was great watching a look-back down memory lane. the Stones with Brian Jones, the Who with Keith Moon, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Dave Clark 5, Kinks, Hollies, Yardbirds, remembered all of them and how young we all once were.

    • Cynthia W.

      I missed it, although I had intended to watch it. I’ve read several books lately that dealt with the mid 60′s through the 70′s, and all were great, and the pictures made me ask “were we ever that young”?

      • Denni A

        CNN is showing replays over the w/e not sure what the airtimes are.

        “were we ever that young”?
        seems like a world away…doesn’t it.

      • malta123

        “were we ever that young”? Now don’t go maudling on us, of course we “are”…Oh! A new avatar I see? Wolfgang will not be pleased her friend has been forsaken.

        • Cynthia W.

          Dolphins love Wolfgang.

          • malta123

            Actually, that’s true, did you see that TV programme on the friendship between the dolphin and a dog? The dog would swim out from the shore to meet the dolphin and play around.

          • Cynthia W.

            I haven’t seen it, but someone I know that worked with dolphins compared them to dogs, because of their loyalty and intelligence.

          • malta123

            I’ll see if I can send you the link.

          • againstitall

            Fixed thanks, hadctwo windows open

          • malta123
    • againstitall

      Those bands were great, seen most of them live.

    • allison1050

      Maybe I shouldn’t say this Denni but I was 14 when they hit these shores.

      • rg9rts

        Lets see that makes you………

        • allison1050

          …like a fine wine.

          • rg9rts

            Tart

          • allison1050

            giggles and lots of them

          • allison1050

            Tarts are good also especially lemon curd tarts!

  • againstitall

    Hello all, huff post reject calling in for a pint.

    • malta123

      I recognise that avatar from HP, nice to see you, nice.

      Spread the word.

      • againstitall

        Likewise, didn’t know you were here, you still on the huff?take care my friend

        • malta123

          No, I left in December, are you still on there?

          • againstitall

            Yes, but its really weird, strange things going only found the pub today, tip from Sammy.

          • malta123

            Yes, fact is stranger than fiction, I concluded they were
            taking the P***.

            It’s like a ghost town on there now, apart from the obvious
            sycophants.

            If we can build this up it would great, much more civilised on here and you get sensible people commenting….whereabouts are you in the UK?

          • againstitall

            I move around a lot, but based in Essex, Epping.

          • malta123

            Got it…I’m in Wales by default, came back from France and settled here, but originally from Hampshire.

          • againstitall

            Hope your not too wet in Wales, the weather has been horrendous in some parts.

          • malta123

            It’s par for the course in Wales, rains most of the time in the winter, but the summers, if we ever get one, are glorious!

          • againstitall

            I know, spent a few summer holidays in wales, years ago, it was good, scenery was great.

          • rg9rts

            It really isn’t Wales but a exurb of Seattle

          • 25sammy25

          • againstitall

            When I click on your picture , I get message bad gateway error 502.

          • malta123

            Re-load ET, it’s a network error between two different servers trying to connect you at the same time.

          • malta123

            Access ET from internet Explorer and bookmark it on the star on the top right hand side, that way you’ll always get back to the pub. I keep ET and AOL running simultaneously and switch between the two.

          • Cynthia W.

            You can do that on Firefox as well. Just click on “bookmarks”, and then click “bookmark this page”.

          • 25sammy25

            Hi againstitall – Nothing wrong with my cocktail, depending on what your reply was !! lol.!! You asked on the other side what was wrong with Lally and I know she reads our comments so I’ll just favour your reply. She was diagnosed as having MS a few months back and her tests today told her the spine was deteriorating quite progressively. She is really quite disabled now and has to use a wheelchair, which she calls her chariot !! Still has her sense of humour but has quite bad days thinking of her future. Talk later my friend. xxxx

          • againstitall

            Very sad, see my HP reply, talk later ♥♥♥

          • 25sammy25

            HI againstitall – Didn’t want to discuss it on Huff as she reads our comments. Never mind, I sent her your sympathy and love. She will be delighted and has asked for instructions to get into ET. Just hope she can follow my amateurish instructions !! lol. Talk later. xoxoxoxo

            We’ve had quite a conversation re Lally over on Huff. Have just had an e-mail thanking you for your kisses and love. She says she’s OK now, but the lady puts on a brave face. Her e-mail tonight was totally different to this mornings one when she was quite tearful. She is hoping to join us here. Chat soon. xoxoxoxo

          • againstitall

            I am pleased she is feeling somewhat better,, she needs cheering up, but she will have to be a good Et’er♥

          • 25sammy25

            HI againstitall – She certainly seems to be. That is the problem, she is in denial as to why she was booted off Huff. I have also tried Casual Agent to join here but he doesn’t think it is his scene. Strange he was booted off the same time as Lally !! Beggars they were. I will warn her because she was a bit OTT at times. Now closing down so will reply to others here and there tomorrow. Till then, nite, nite. xoxoxoxoxo

          • againstitall

          • 25sammy25

          • againstitall

            One gives you presents, the other one, makes you confess, your guilty pleasures,, and loves listening, therapy for the soul♥♥

          • 25sammy25

            Oh yes, like that santa giving presents. Got thrown out of confessions, too many for him to cope with. Didn’t listen to me ! Still therapeutic being thrown out though !! Cor, I’m falling way behind !! See you later. xxxxx ❤❤

          • againstitall

            Your definitely not behind, way in front I think♥♥

          • 25sammy25

            Well I sent in a complaint about the notifications not being shown in our profiles and a very, very, very nice man said they appreciated feedback and he would forward it to the appropriate department. Mind you words mean nothing we need action over there. It is total crap now since FB. Gggrrrrrrr !!!! Speak later my friend. xoxoxox

          • againstitall

            Calm down Sammy, stress is not good, lets play with some string,see you in the alley♥

          • againstitall

            That sounds like a very good idea, we could end up entwined together, then what are we going to do, call for Lally to help, now there’s a thought, until later ♥~~~♥~~~ ♥

    Greetings, everyone! I don’t have much time to post these days, but I’ll look in once in a while – at least we’re on the same side of the ocean, so you won’t all be trotting off to bed when I arrive.
    *looks around* What a lovely place! We can sit outside at the picnic tables in the summer, eh?

    • malta123

      Salutations, j’espère que le temps est meilleur en France qu’elle ne l’est ici, pour le moment.

      Vous avez raison sur la différence de temps, j’ai eu quelques nuits blanches, tout récemment .. lol

      • chezmoi

        Bonjour, Geoff. Eh bien, ça va, un peu humide cet aprème, mais le matinée était belle.
        J’ai fait une petite visite chez les Canadiens, et laissé une chanson, donc pour toi, une autre par la belle Sarah Slean – tu verras pourquoi. :-)

        • malta123

          Merci beaucoup, je vais jeter un oeil à la chanson, il semble parler drôle en français à nouveau après mon temps à Brantôme. J’ai eu des voisins merveilleux là-bas et ma femme a un ami dans le nord de la France qui a épousé un Français. Ils ont un ancien verger de pommes qui a été la famille depuis des générations, ils produisent le tripple plus merveilleux cidre distillé.

          • chezmoi

            Hmmm! Distillé, c’est bien plus que du cidre! If you like cider and perry, I must recommend the restaurant ‘Chimes’ next time you’re in London. http://www.chimes-of-pimlico.co.uk/
            You’ll need a Passport to Pimlico, of course.

          • malta123

            Thanks, we’re going down to London to renew my wife’s passport in a couple of month’s time…we’ll try it.

            We’re off to Poland and Eastern Europe via France and Belgium in June in the motorhome and then we will be able to sample the real deal….Cheers…Geoff.

          • chezmoi

            I hope you will like it. We discovered it on our first trip to London, in ’84. If you go, you can celebrate for me – thirty years of recommending it! We last went in ’01 and I remember still how good their pies were. Another spot we enjoyed was the Ebury Wine Bar, which is, amazingly, still there as well. The trompe l’oeil bookshelf paintings are enough to keep you amused for ages while you nibble from the bar menu.
            http://eburyrestaurant.co.uk/
            We had rented a holiday ‘flatlet’ on Eccleston Square for a month, and had a wonderful time. We enjoyed it so much that we did it again in ’86, near Sloane Square.

          • malta123

            Those were the days..eh.

    • againstitall

      The barbecue will be primed and ready, welcome.

      • chezmoi

        Merci! Nice to see another Huffugee arrive on solid ground, wielding a BBQ fork, no less. I hope you used it to give a few well-placed jabs on your way out. Heh.

        • againstitall

          Not let left yet, still have to twist the fork a bit more yet.

          • chezmoi

            Oooh, wasn’t it Dorothy Parker who said, “If you can’t say anything nice [about Arianna], come sit over here with me”?
            I left early on, about Dec 15th, after I lost twenty percent of my friends and didn’t want to give the Grik any more clicks. I admire those who have the time to stay on and try to bring out the good folks to more viable sites, like this one. They are very dear, here, about making us feel at home with spaces like this, and taking suggestions for discussions. I also like the articles on some other places like Alternet, but I’m having trouble getting the (non-Disqus) comments to show up there.

          • againstitall

            I am trying to get a few more defectors, Alternet, haven’t heard of that one, but too many take up to much time, I cant even get an avatar picture to upload on this site, take care.

          • chezmoi

            If you’re new to Disqus, you need to go to your profile by clicking on your avatar, then mouse over your mini-avatar in the top right corner and click on ‘edit profile’. In the column at left, click ‘avatar’ and you can choose to upload a pic from the web or your own computer. Good luck!

          • againstitall

            I have done that, I pick the file from my pictures, it names the file, when I confirm the file, it just takes me back to pick another file, I am going round in circles.

          • chezmoi

            Oh, my, that is frustrating. I wonder if they accept only jpeg, gif or png? If you have a bmp it could be a problem. Alternatively, try picking one from the web – if that doesn’t work either, you can contact them for help.
            I was having a lot of problems getting in here last week, and onto other Disqus sites as well, and for a few days I was ready to toss them all out the window. I complained to them, and for some reason it is working now. Who knows what it was.

          • againstitall

            I will try a web picture, cheers, Mon Amie.

          • chezmoi

            Bonne chance!

          • againstitall

            Merci !

      BYOB???

  • takawalk

    Well I took a wrong turn, but as long as I am here can this poor Gulf Coast boy ask a favor? In the future will “you all” keep that cold weather up there where it belongs? A little ice and a bit of snow turns our world upside down.

    • Cynthia W.

      Take some away from NJ as well, while you”re at it. At least it’s above freezing today, but I still would never be caught sitting in the stands watching a football game in the cold. How can you enjoy something when you’re shivering from the cold? Well I guess some people like football that much–i can do without it.

    • chezmoi

      Not my fault, Tak – we’ve only had light frosts all winter here in the middle of la France, and were running around in jackets (okay, and raincoats) over the holidays. Good luck with your quest, mon cher, if you can find out who’s sending it down your way.

      • rg9rts

        alert me me when we get to the running around on the lawn naked part

        • chezmoi

          Hmmm, I remember the old saying on campus, ‘Hurray, hurray, the first of May, outdoor intercourse starts today!’
          Try to be patient.

          • rg9rts

            Use PF 50 sunblock

          • chezmoi

            Always. Especially us redheads. :-)

          • rg9rts

            I’ve always been partial to redheads

          • chezmoi

            Good to have that established. Now what is this rumor that one must wear special induction pants to play here? I have no experience with induction, as my cooker is all gas, and I much prefer that to electricity; like liquor, it’s quicker.
            Besides, *ahem* as we were saying, pants are a purely seasonal thing,

            21 degrees I’m in my shorts. The other stuff is a brit thing

          • chezmoi

            Ah, as a non-Brit I am exempt from all the official folderol? Mon dieu, what a relief. I have no head for numbers. Last time I spent the weekend at Bletchley Park, I kept forgetting what floor my room was on. You can imagine the confusion!

          • rg9rts

            You are exempt, It must have been exciting if your key worked in other doors.

          • chezmoi

            They had a fascinating code system. Fortunately I had read all the right books in my misspent youth.

          • rg9rts

            They didn’t have anything to do with the Masterpiece Mystery series??

          • chezmoi

            No, more of a leftover from their illustrious history.
            Ah, that conjures up visions of Alastair in his leather wing chair. we did watch every the episode that came along before we left the States. In fact, just last night I watched an episode of Poirot – dubbed in French, bien sur.

          • rg9rts

            Call malta by his real name…..Rumpole

          • chezmoi

            Ha! I just read ‘Clinging To The Wreckage’ a few months ago – an early autobiography.. Rumpole is a fascinating character. Funny, I hadn’t pictured Geoff with such a red nose.

          • rg9rts

            Its usually wet! It was quite a series

          • rg9rts

            Apologies 002, for breaking into your communication, I have a dispatch from the Kapitan, reference the “M” designation for Monsta and other applicants. Please view the available unclassified service numbers below and kindly provide me with service numbers for againstitall, sammy25, Cynthia and Monsta.

          • rg9rts

            What do I look like a Clark??

  • rg9rts

    No one home here either??? Good grief its after 10

    • malta123

      Now back in after shopping, rg.

    • allison1050

      Are we the only ones up? I guess everyone’s is full of hot wings and stuff and still can’t budge.

      • malta123

        I’m up, what’s a hot wing?

        • rg9rts

          Fried chicken wing in hot sauce…..another reason to be a veggie

          • malta123

            Gotcha…are u a veggie?

          • rg9rts

            Yup by evolution and complete for the last year. I just lost the taste for meat. first beef then slowly the rest. the last to go was bacon

          • Richard M

            No wonder Monsta looks pist! You don’t try to get Monsta to eat rabbit food, do you, #2?

          • allison1050

            I tried 1 once and was totally amazed at how awful it was..why do people eat stuff like that?

          • rg9rts

            They are usually drunk, very very drunk

          • allison1050

            A person would have to be drunk or starving or both to think it good!

          • rg9rts

            That also explains other foods.Single malt was created to aid in the eating of haggis

          • allison1050

            chuckles!

          • Richard M

            So I have to eat haggis to justify 12yo Single Malt?

          • rg9rts

            Its good cover, enough 12 yr old you can skip the haggis

          • 25sammy25

            Hey rg – Now it wasn’t – Whisky was initially brought into Burns Night as a toast to the ladies who made the meal. Now though, it is drunk for the sake of it. YUK, whisky !! xoxoxoxoxo

          • Richard M

            Recipe sounds great. Can I get a good haggis anywhere in UK? Or only in Scotland?

            I’d like to get haggis and poutine, and a 12 yo single malt, all at the same establishment.

          • 25sammy25

            Hi Richard – Tesco sell the best one that I have tried. As near authentic as it can be. You’ll get your single malt there but you’ll have to go to a chippie for your cheesie chips. !! There’s bound to be a Tesco near you. Enjoy.

          • chezmoi

            Hi, Sammy! That’s a good tip. We had Tesco haggis brought over for our last Bu’ns night and it was delicious. It was my first time, so a pleasant surprise, and the neeps and tatties were cooked to perfection. We all contributed to the entertainment – I recited ‘To A Wee Mousie’, much ameliorated by the single malt.
            Merci for the recipe – doubt I’ll ever make it now I’m on my own, but you may inspire someone to try.

          • 25sammy25

            Good evening chezmoi – Thank you, it was my pleasure. So glad you enjoyed the Tesco Haggis, it is as near to the traditional that I have found. Of course it has to be served with neeps and tatties. Ah, ‘To A Wee Mouse’

            WEE, sleekit, cow’rin, tim’rous beastie,
            O, what a panic’s in thy breastie!
            Thou need na start awa sae hasty,
            Wi’ bickering brattle!
            I wad be laith to rin an’ chase thee, 5
            Wi’ murd’ring pattle!

            Difficult enough to say without the single malt. lol. !!

            je t’en prie. I think it will be much easier to shop at Tesco than follow the recipe.

          • rg9rts

            There is a joke there but I’ll email it to you

          • 25sammy25

  • chuckwhite

    In the intro to this forum, you say, “Obviously, Brits are not restricted to this room and can roam freely”.

    Do you think allowing them to “roam freely” is a good idea? Aren’t you afraid your site will be infected by blatant oddity and strangeness?

    … I just love to stir the pot :-/

    • rg9rts

      • chuckwhite

        I’m not broken … barely tamed. I only crap in my own domicile, if that’s your concern. :-)

        • rg9rts

          Do you cover it up?? That is of great concern to me as I can spend hours rearranging every grain of litter in my box

          • chuckwhite

            [belly laugh] No, I’m sorry to say, I blatantly drop my crap for others to see and make no attempt to cover the mess.

          Kapitan, there appears to be some confusion, is chuckwhite a female service applicant? My assumption, was that chuck is the male version of Charles and as you are aware, cross- dressing is not permitted in the regiment, it causes confusion amongst the ranks.

          • Richard M

            I will entrust the investigation of the question to your unquestioned sleuthing abilities, 003. New Scotland Yard is well aware that C**P investigatory abilities dwarf their own to insignificance.

            Should it be necessary, the Party has authorized you to perform the Crocodile Dundee test on the applicant.

          • malta123

            Thank you Kapitan, you can rely on me to approach the matter with caution and sensitivity. The regiment cannot afford to be accused of discrimination.

          • rg9rts

            Regiment? Damn I must be in the wrong place…..I want the squadron

          • Richard M

            CW’s escape and evasion techniques will be a fine addition to the ranks of the 00′s. Along with his/her expertise in molecular biology. Let me know what you uncover, 003!

        Since making this comment, I have been ordered to report to HQ … and have been duly inducted (I think).

        • JasmineStarlight

          I hope they didn’t integrate you to much, all that being a double agent and all. I’m sure you’re a recruit that will bring much….what’s your specialty.
          Be careful of minefields….having wings I can fly over them (oh how I wish anyway)

      • Richard M

        Are you ready to sign your enlistment documents, loyalty oath and secrecy oath, JS? There may still be a 00 level posting available. Pending my review of 002 & 003′s recruitment efforts.

        The brigade can put your infiltration skills to good use, and help hasten the defeat of the forces of evil!

        • JasmineStarlight

          Sounds like a winning team, top notch recruits.
          Being the rebel I am, I don’t follow orders to well at times. Not sure Angelwings would fit in… I might end up being court martial for some secret opt. I had to ummn bend the rules a little. I thank you for considering me Sir… I do love fighting the forces of evil–so satisfying. If you need an agent for a special mission…send Morse code to Angelwings, and I will take flight. (OK you see don’t know military lingo….and not even sure what I’m saying now…but, makes one smile)

    Prince Charles to visit flood victims in Somerset, well someone has to, they’ve been under water for the past month.

    Now all of those idiots who in the past who have disparagingly described the Prince as a climate change nut, can eat their words. Good for you Charles.

    • Richard M

      One of my neighbors thinks Charles is the Anti-Christ. He’s serious too…..LOL!

      Good afternoon, 003.

      • againstitall

        Thats the prince of darkness.

        • malta123

          Please report to Kapitan, Richard M. for induction and the issue of your 00 service number.

          • againstitall

            Ready and hopefully able, have dug out my induction trousers for the task.7

        • Richard M

          My neighbor, the puir omadhaun, has a formula of adding Charles’ D.O.B. to his shoe size and adding that to his waist size, plus the number of freckles on Camilla’s cheek, which then comes out to 666. “Proving” that Charles is Satan’s chosen one.

          • malta123

            Truly weird, Kapitan, has he made an appointment with the rg, the regimental shrink?

          • Richard M

            That one will need “special handling” Is Albrecht available?

          • againstitall

            Present and ready for induction as requested.

          • Richard M

            Excellent news! It will have to be approved by the Central Kommittee of the party, but your provisional party number will be 0,000,007. Since 002 and 003 have both vouched for your integrity, that is mainly a formality, and your I.D. card should be sent out within 24 hours.

            A prestigious number, to be sure, so don’t let it go to your head. Be vigilant to watch for spies and infiltrators. As usual this message will auto-delete 44 seconds after receipt.

            Remember your party I.D. is secret and must never be divulged to non-party members.

            Welcome aboard, 007! Agent 003 will see to your original training needs.

            Excellent, 003. Have him report to me at HQ. I will impart his instructions there, using a SCIF.

            I want you to recruit our next agent candidate, Cynthia W. We have need of one with here expertise in her AO.

            You have full Kommittee latitude in issuing her I.D. number. Just have her sign the standard non-disclosure and loyalty oaths.

            Wilco, Kapitan, may I respectfully suggest that the Kapitan be re-designated, 001 Zulu, this would seem more appropriate.

          • Richard M

            I prefer to keep my service number classified, at this time, 003.

            Has Monsta accepted induction into the Wolfganger Korps yet?

            It may be necessary to create an “M” classification

          • malta123

            Understood Kapitan, you are to remain, Zulu 011, a very unassuming and modest decision. I have yet to approach 002 with the proposal for the “M” classification, but will do so, before the end of my duties today.

          • Richard M

            I can neither confirm nor deny that Zulu 011 is my designation.

            Since my numerical classification must remain secret, you may refer to me as “M”.

          • malta123

            Understood Kapitan, but will “M” not be confused with classification M for Monsta? I don’t mind if I do, have another scotch, thank you Sir.

          • malta123

            Back on duty Kapitan, 20.00 Hrs GMT, will “M” not be confused with classification M for Monsta?

          • Richard M

            Not at all. “M” is not the same as M. Especially since all M class party members, also have a numerical rating, beginning with M001.

            Always a good stratagem to delegate duties, 002. As long as your subordinates have the proper security clearances.

            I’ll happily possess you, no circumcision, woops, I mean exorcism required. Of course I will and she will appreciate it. If she saw you say that of Huff, I’d be getting a text message !! lol !! xoxoxoxox

          • againstitall

            She can still see the huff stuff?, I will if she can ♥♥

          • 25sammy25

            Yes, she can still read Huff topics and read the comments, but I think she had a few bookmarked that she kept her eye on. She can’t comment or favour any comments/replies at all. xxxx

          • againstitall

            A friendly ghost in the ether of the huff♥♥

          • 25sammy25

            I love that mute button. It’s great to shut someone up. Now don’t let that give you any ideas !! I would hazard a guess that it was Darkstar, he’s continually muted !! Still the same problem there but still managing to reply, with a struggle. lol. !!

          • againstitall

            I argue with DS all the time. he just loves Labour no it was some idiot, that attacks anyone who criticises the EU, he a Eurovile, OH72.♥♥

          • 25sammy25

            Hiya – His comments are normally muted now. He’s not a very pleasant person. Know of Euroville, but not OH72.

          • againstitall

            I unmuted him, but left him flagged, then he can bury himself, ♥♥

          • 25sammy25

            Should have left him muted, then everyone can see who has been shut up !! xxxx

          • 25sammy25

            I did pick up on one user who was trying to be clever but he used their instead of they’re, so I let him know and another user came back to me and said good !! If he’s not a happy goat, he must be an old goat !! xoxoxoxooxo ❤❤

      Gheeze that snow was heavy too :(……a job for a Monsta –claw right through!!!!!

      • rg9rts

        Got the snow down to an inch on the car and it is getting a glaze of sleet. 84 is completely closed from Pa to Conn. About a foot here but the early stuff was powder

        • JasmineStarlight

          Monsta resting comfy inside too :). I just finished shoveling the driveway, and the damnnnnn snow plow comes by pushing big snow boulders in front of it again….dig it out, and once again they come by…..second dig not as bad. ENOUGH WINTER ALREADY!!!! Stay safe rg9—watch the back, bend with legs—ouch!!!

          • rg9rts

            That’s why I started at 3am 20 mins pushing powder every hour or so. Left an inch to crust over with the rain. The rest is the landlords problem.

          • Richard M

            LOL! Mwaaah!

          • JasmineStarlight

            I’ll get you Richard, just like I’ll get that plow guy if I see him coming my way again!! Spring :)

          • malta123

            And speaking of which, have you issued a service number for him, the kapitan has given himself “M”, so that kinda confuses things for Monsta!

            Claws at dawn over the designation he can be m as opposed to M

          • malta123

            OK…and the number to go with it?

          • rg9rts

            m1 of course

          • malta123

            Ok…001 is as yet unclassified, so it’s m001……

          • rg9rts

            Ditch the M Sammy is really upset by huff. I told her.

          • malta123

            Blimey, clarify that for me please?

          • rg9rts

            She and lally and against it all were banned

          • malta123

            Really? I’ll no doubt be hearing about that, but what has this to do with ditching M for Monsta?

          • rg9rts

            MONSTA is M the other guy is m001

          • malta123

            rg, have you been at the bottom draw? Which other guy? Unless you mean m001 is a compensatory number for Sammy?

          • rg9rts

            Dickie of course

          • malta123

            Ahh…got it, but Dickie is 011, designated “M” and has declared that we are not permitted to know his real identity….it’s a cock-up…I will have to have words with the Kapitan.

          • rg9rts

            Disqus got really stupid not only yesterday but today too. reload anyone????

          • Richard M

            Co-ordinates of your ammunition resupply are in your Mission Profile packet, 002.

          • malta123

            Eh?

          • Richard M

            Elections for the “M” title are in one month, so begin campaigning now.

          • 25sammy25

            Hey rg – We haven’t been banned. Huff is up the shoot temporarily, I think. If we’re banned, all users are banned as we are all in the same position. Let me introduce myself as 008, but don’t know how many mmmmmms I’m worth. Should be $$$$$ !! ol. !! xoxoxoxoxox

          • malta123

            He’s been at the bottom draw Sammy…..lol, no more scotch..ya hear?

          • 25sammy25

            Hi malta – Nothing new there then !! lol !! Has Jill made it over here yet.??? I got a post through to her but she was having a problem with ET accepting her name as it required a number. She then tried it with a 1 after it but that didn’t work. Told her to try 123 after her name and you would recognise her.

          • malta123

            Have not seen Jill yet, would she recognise any of the regiment’s posts, I wonder?…lol

          • 25sammy25

            If I remember correctly I gave her the links to the necessary sites, as opposed to straight into ET. Hope she makes it as she is totally pi$$ed off with Huff.

          • malta123

            Internet is crap here, takes ages to get through, not ET’s fault.

          • 25sammy25

            Her problem was getting a Disqus account. I won’t repeat on here what she said about ET. That’s an e-mailer !!

      • 25sammy25

        As many mmmmmmmmmms as necessary please to 008. xoxoxoxoxoxo

        • rg9rts

        Welcome to the brigade, and to the C**P Party, 008!

        • 25sammy25

          Thank you Richard – My pleasure to be 008 as part of the C**p Party, I think. lol !!

          • Richard M

            We respond aggressively to conspiracies, here at the C**P Party.

    • Richard M

      Excellent news!

  • malta123

    Kapitan, Richard M, there is confusion amongst the ranks with regard to service numbers, would the Kapitan kindly clarify and approve the service number listings posted today in the officer’s mess and approve the same. We still await clarification on a service number for the regimental cat, namely: Monsta.

    • Richard M

      Fear not, 003. Monsta shall be given the designation M001. My own rank is “M”, it may seem confusing, but it will all come out in the wash.

      • malta123

        Sir, the postings list has been amended at 10.00 Hrs GMT following a breakdown in communications. A copy of which, is held in the officer’s mess.

        Access to the officer’s mess is restricted to serving members of the colonial outposts from December 14th 2013, to date.

        All other ranks, in the sergeant’s mess, NCO and below, will be promoted to officer class, on having served on active duty, for a period of no less than three calendar months.

        • Richard M

          All of them? Who will cook the haggis and pour the Guinness?

          • malta123

            The new recruits on cook house duties, Kapitan.

          • againstitall

            I can do wonders with haggis.

  • Richard M

    007 & 008 have confirmed that Operation Byrtle Meach is a smashing success! The enemy’s communications are in complete disarray! Congratulations to 005 who orchestrated this most excellent sneak attack on the Reich’s center of power!

    • malta123

      Excellent news, Kapitan.

      • Richard M

        I hadn’t expected the enemy to counterattack so swiftly, 003. Commo has been a hash here most of the evening.

        We may need to launch follow up attacks on enemy HQ to punish their audacity!

        • malta123

          We await your orders, Kapitan, I will place our most loyal and trusted members on active duty, in preparation for the task, suggest, “operation commo break-down”.

          • Richard M

            Yes. That should work.

            Keep a HALO jump team ready on standby, in case of contingencies. No prisoners are to be taken unless grade Oberst or greater.

    • againstitall

      Can I have .some R&R

      • Richard M

        You’re up at 02:00 and wanting R&R?

You can’t ask a site to do more than they have done to put up with us. The most important part is I can always find where you were lately by going to your profile unless you go private. Love you dearest xoxoxooxxoxoxxo

          • 25sammy25

            as he snores behind me You know that most of the action around here is usually on the other sites HH and Agora. pretty quiet right now. Give it a chance it will grow on you. How many other places would create 4 sites for an invasion of huffugees.? More are showing up every day . So play oxoxoxxoxooxoxoxoxox

            You ever do collision drill???

          • malta123

            Collusion, but never collision, what’s that?

          • rg9rts

            Take the group…..you have 45 mins to kill …..two drill instructors. and you marche4d independently ….sometimes you collided to the amusement of all of us.

          • malta123

            Sounds a blast, internet here is crap tonight, or is ET again?

          • rg9rts

            Don’t know what you are getting . the drill is what we did in reality in tech school. The whole thing was prefaced by the announcement “Collision Drill” No NCO’s and a lot of fun. Think about it. Two groups marching into one another.

          • malta123

            Hmmm…can’t say I’ve ever heard of capers like that!

          • rg9rts

            Disqus is getting stupid again….It broke up the monotony for a bunch of kids that had time to kill to make the NCO’s happy.as long as they heard commands being issued. Its not what you see but rather what you think you see. Rumpole that is basic!!

    I believe that we have worn out our welcome at Happy Hour, what’s happening with Disqus?

    • JasmineStarlight

      Hi Allison they LOVE US here!! Even making a happy hour for us…not sure where everyone is….but they’ll be back. ET got the best of the best from HP….how could they tire of us :)

      • allison1050

        Hi Jasmine, do you know what’s happening with the disappearing replies?

        • JasmineStarlight

          Allison… I have problems getting replies to my dashboard at times.
          I’m not sure what’s happening with postings disappearing.
          Hope it clears up, thought we found posting paradise here. Perhaps they’re doing maintenance here as some said.

          • allison1050

            Just found out that they’ve changed the lay out.

          • JasmineStarlight

            Allison many are over at The Agora…..talking about it, or were.

          • allison1050

            Morning Jasmine, the changes haven’t been finalized so we’re just going to have to hang in there and be patient .. sigh :>)

          • JasmineStarlight

            Hellooooo Allison….top of the morning. Last night was a disaster zone here, the spinning wheel diquas not loading….perhaps thier ‘spring’ cleaning is now done, hope so. I can put up with maintenance, once in awhile….makes it quicker and easier :)
            Enjoy your day! I wish I had a Friday tune to leave, the music is escaping me tho, can’t think of a good one. I know so many out there too. Out into the freeze shortly.

          • allison1050

            I heard about last night. I was up to there with my own pc problems etc. and finally gave up early. I just tried to respond to malta twice within the past 5 min. and both responses have ‘disappeared’ so I’m just going to read, talk to you later Jazzy Jasmine!

    • againstitall

      Your very welcome♥

    • Richard M

      Last night Disqus was messed up. Then tonight it was messed up again. I hope they get it straightened out. There were 5 hours or so today when it was impossible to post.

      • malta123

        Wolfgang shares her Kapitan’s concern, additional compo rations were issued in compensation, notwithstanding a complaint as to the biscuits being dry. Suggest we check our MOD supplier for sell by dates. Dispatch 08.45 Hrs GMT.

        • chezmoi

          Dry biscuits cry out for liquid accompaniment. Especially when you’re trying to foist off those old rations from the last century.
          I’ll have a perry.

          • malta123

            Perry venir mon ami, je crois cela est suffisant, bien que, je préfère être là où vous êtes maintenant. Nous voyageons à la Pologne par la France en Juin, simplement parce que nous n’avons jamais été en Pologne, mais nous attarderons en France, mon second et bien aimé la maison.

          • rg9rts

            That wasn’t that long ago. I had c rations from WWII during the Viet Nam era

        • Richard M

          Single malt, Guinnes and hot tea in the officers mess. Enlisted ranks can have water or milk.

          • malta123

            Refreshments coming up, kapitan, your kind consideration of the NCO’s is well noted, may I suggest a complimentary invitation to the Sergeant’s Mess to the curry lunch at the Officer’s Mess, Worthy Down, Hampshire, in honour of the late Major E.W. D**. Field Command Pay Officer.

          • Richard M

            Very well. One Guinness or single malt for the NCOs. Keep a close watch though. We can’t have brawling in the mess.

      • rg9rts

        Go to their site for a taste of the good ole days

      • allison1050

        Yesterday I accidentally discovered that Disqus is updating their layout so that’s why we’ve been having so many problems. Hopefully, TET and Disqus will work out the problems soon.

        • Richard M

          It’s three days in a row now. Driving me batty!

          • allison1050

            I got so tired of it early yesterday evening I left the site entirely, we’re just going to have to hang in there.

          • Richard M

            They have to get it sorted out eventually. ….I have no clue why it is taking so long…..I’m pretty sure Disqus and ET are more outraged than we are.

            What can we do though? I just visit other sites, or step out for a stroll.

          • allison1050

            I only see a blank screen now on The Public House, Happy Hour, The House of Commas and at the end of every article, what do you see Richard? I’ve refreshed and still nothing.

          • Richard M

            Hi Allison. I just got your reply to show up, after waiting 15 minutes.

            Now the system is fighting me keystroke by keystroke, to try to reply.
            :-(

    • chezmoi

      HI, Allison, we certainly haven’t worn out our welcome here; ET is as frustrated as we are. I had a note from ET Feedback that Disqus was down again last night, even their admin site was out for several hours. We just need to be patient and keep checking in – don’t give up! If the responses don’t show up, just refresh the page frequently or keep your dashboard open in another tab.
      Maybe it will be fixed in time for a big party this weekend!

      • allison1050

        Morning chez, early yesterday evening Disqus was having problems loading the comments. I also discovered that TET has changed the layout of the comments. I was also having problems with my PC and had to replace a piece of equipment a couple of days ago.
        So you’re right chez…We Have To Be Patient :>) I’m looking forward to the Big Party. Thanks for your response chez.

          • Richard M

            I’m trying to troll a guy named Randal, Johnny. On the Philippine gangster thread.

            His idea is that peasants (like me) have no right to have opinions about the wealthy and powerful.

            Claims he’s an attorney, and therefore his stit doesn’t shink.

            Stop by and help rile him up, if you have a moment.

            Caine Mutiny was a great film no doubt. Was Fred McMurry ever cast as the “bad guy” anywhere else?

            Of course!

          • malta123

            Can’t find that thread?

          • Richard M

            Easiest way would be to scroll my comment history.

            Notice there’s a story headline preceding a group of comments… Headline is Vhong Navarro——–. Vhong was victimized by a gangster extortion plot, and Randal, Johnny is trying to shill for the gangster.

          I do, rg, he’s one of those elusive Brits, we need more recruits. Obviously, he’ll have to go through basic training though.

          • 25sammy25

            I trust him implicitly. Like yourself he is a bit of a night owl.!! Hoot, hoot !! What basic training, have I gone through it or is that why I am 008 !! Talk later.

        • rg9rts

          Morning paper time like U2 and the imaginary bagels

          • Richard M

            Papers? How quaint. Or did you mean rolling papers?

          • rg9rts

            There are some things you can do with them that you can’t do electronically

            Have you been having problems with notifications?? I have found that I have to change sites and all of a sudden three or four will appear. Like I’ll get notifications here that don’t appear on agora when I’m there

          • Richard M

            Definitely. Disqus has weirdnesses built in. Sometimes I go to a particular forum, then after playing in the basement for an hour or two, I scroll up to the top and see no comments in two or three hours. But if I switch to another forum then go back to look again, there were many new comments. They just didn’t appear on my screen.

          • rg9rts

            Had that happen to I check my profile and the comment is there but no where else. The case of the disappearing someone typing.

          • Richard M

            The typing can have a legitimate explanation. People type half a comment and get distracted. Actually, you don’t even half to type. If you just open a reply window and then forget it without closing it, the target will see one person typing, even if they’re not.

            But Disqus is weird, no doubt. Lot’s more tech issues than HP had. Still I’ve got 2400 comments here in 3 months. At HP that would take 3 years.

          • Richard M

            I agree. Tough to wrap fish in Emails!

    • Richard M

      G’day, Malts.

      Watching any Olympic events?

      • malta123

        G’day, Richard M…no, off to the seaside wiff Wolfgang, to try out my wife’s birthday present, a Go-Pro hero 3+ camera, under water. Should be a load of fun, not sure however, how to get the footage onto ET?

        • Richard M

          Swimming in February? I will assign you to our new UDT infiltration teams.

          • malta123

            No, no, Kapitan, trawling on the shore line, with the camera mounted on an adjustable monopod.

          • Richard M

            It’s a small step from trawling to actually making the plunge yourself. Wolfgang will inaugurate our W-UDT team learning how to plant limpet mines on hostile warships.

            Good job, 003. Carry on!

          • malta123

            Thank you Sir, in fact, operation Wolfgang Sea Cadet, was aborted due to hostile conditions, in favour of promenade duties under the command of 003 and his assistant, NCO.

            If you feel it necessary to delay implementation temporarily, then that is approved.

            So here is where you disappeared to this morning, 002! You jammed the signals so effectively as to black out communication, and you know my Kanine Korps are still in training.

      • Richard M

        Welcome aboard, LW.

        First glass is on Malta, second is on Sammy.

        • lallywendy

          Thank you kindly! x

          • Richard M

            I’ll have your enlistment packet sent round in the morning. Just standard forms. Vow to die before revealing Brigade secrets. Vow eternal loyalty to the party. And vow to vote for Richard in the upcoming elections for the title of “M”.

          • lallywendy

            Oooo oh dear I’m not very good at keeping secrets probably best not to tell me the good ones! you wouldn’t need to torture me either, tickling me usually gets it out of me! M? is that all he gets? Not very impressive is it? personally a Lady Lally or The Duchess of ….. would suit me! That vow thing how about if I made it but did as I did when I got married – I kept my fingers crossed whenI promised to obey!! So it didn’t count and I never have!! That sounds good to me sir darling!! x

          • Richard M

            The direktor is always referred to as Kapitan, or “M”. If you wish to change that you may run for “M” in next months elections.

            All full members get a full vote, while all family members, candidate members and friends of the Brigade get 1/2 vote.

            In order to be a candidate to be “M”, you must be nominated and seconded by two current party members.

            If you are elected “M”, you can then change “M”‘s designation.

      • malta123

        Enough of this insubordination, private lally wendy, report to Kapitan Richard M for the induction process and basic training, there afterwards, you will receive your service number and dog-tag…x (one allowed on induction)

        • lallywendy

          erm but I don’t have a dog sweetie, oh I mean sir! x

          • malta123

            Wolfgang W004, at your service Mam….you are invited to the curry lunch in the officer’s mess at 1900 Hrs GMT, dress code, battledress number one’s.

          • lallywendy

            Oh right erm yes sir, hope you don’t mind terribly I have some leather trousers that look nice, battledress looks a tad drab on me!! And curry’s a bit strong for me a cheese omlette might be nice – sir!

          • malta123

            Have spoken to Kapitan Richard M and have received permission for a variation of the dress code, leather trousers, it is. Unfortunately, omelettes are off the menu, boiled eggs and soldiers are the offered substitute. What part of the United Kingdom would Private lallywendy be from?

          • lallywendy

            Sounds yummy er sir, thanks for the trouser permission and the ‘buppy’ as I called it as a child! Do tell the Kapitan he’s a sweetheart…. sir! I’m in middle england now from North London originally sir permission to kiss sir? Oh I’ll do one anyway x

          • malta123

            You’re welcome, Private lallywendy. As it happens, North London is a favoured recruiting area, the regiment needs streetwise recruits to continue the task of enticing more HP deserters to this site.
            Off duty now, back at 1900Hrs GMT, speak later…x

          • lallywendy

            Very well sir I’ll see what I can do I’m quite good at persuasion, and enticement, a little bribery too! I’ll lie at ease till you return, oh with a glass of bubbly if you don’t mind sir dear please! x

          • HeyJude

            Greetings Private Lallywendy, have anticipated your arrival, much chatter on the airwaves. 004 here, commissioned to outpost in Northern States Territories, Equine Barracks. Will now requisition for leather trousers myself, as I had been unaware that kissing the officers would allow for something more flattering than pantaloons, even with spats they are a bit billowy in the mountain breezes. Kapitan, are you here? Pucker up and hand over the leather goods!!

          • Richard M

            Sorry, 004. We are currently issuing jodhpurs to the ladies. You can wear knee length leather boots with those.

          • HeyJude

            Sorry for the insubordination, Sir. :-( Jodhpurs are really only finer quality pantaloons, though! The hips, sir, the hips! Although, I can see the potential for dual undercover work…if I exchange the knee boots with large red sneakers, I can go incognito at the circus. Perhaps Kapitan can provide a curly orange wig and honking red nose to go with it?

          • malta123

            Good show, 004, the regiment always looks for strong thighs when choosing its equine recruits for mounted duties in the field.

            As an officer and a gentleman, you may take it for granted, there are no salacious connotations in the this dispatch.

          • HeyJude

            None taken, Sir. The stong thighs are an asset when cracking walnuts and eliciting confessions. The jodhpurs did come in handy as a wing suit once, when jumping from an enemy aircraft, so I guess I should not covet the leather trousers. I would have crashed badly if not for the built in parachutes. :-)

          • malta123

            Thank you, 004. Your first duty is find and interrogate “chuck” and establish the reason for his defection from the ranks.

          • HeyJude

            Yes, Sir. Have no worry about my success in this mission. The thighs have never faultered, I have every reason to believe I can provide the information requested.

          • malta123

            Good, 004. Please ensure that maximum thigh pressure is used to effect a quick confession….I must now return to HQ for a debriefing.
            End of dispatch…10.45 Hrs GMT.

          • HeyJude

            Sir! Message transcription secure. 5:51EET, 004.

          • HeyJude

            Kapitan, request read upthread, Sir. Lurker Gina has been following our exploits, her very adroit use of “shyness” has kept her hidden from us. I believe these invisibility talents could further our missions, and I’ll bet the new leather trousers could be used as a sign on bonus. Formal paperwork from Headquarters requested delivered to her, approx. Vektor 8 13:00.27 satellite communications establishment control. 004 out at 7:26EET

          • Richard M

            Excellent, says “M”. Steepling his fingers like Mr Burns. I may send her to The Mountains for basic and secondary training, before her first assignment.

          • HeyJude

            I believe her reports will come in via telepathy, as she has refused to come out from under invisibility. I have some skills as remote viewer, perhaps my services will aid in keeping you “abreast” of Lally’s…oh, er, I mean Gina’s work. :-)

          • Richard M

            Consult with our paranormal activity expert, agent Tak, whose super secret I.D. cannot be revealed.

            It may be necessary to schedule a follow up debriefing of 009.

          • HeyJude

            Might I suggest, Sir, that the debriefing of 009 would be more efficient if you reconsidered the pink leather hotpants ban on uniforms. There is a talc issue with the full leather trouser ensemble…

          • Richard M

            Good thinking, 004. The enemy would like nothing better than to obtain a set of “M”‘s fingerprints.

          • HeyJude

            Yes, Sir…always wear the velvet gloves when debriefing amidst the talc.

          • lallywendy

            ummm excuse me but I do seem to be going through lots of debriefing I don’t want to make a fuss but I do wonder if me wearing the pink leather hot pants might help you in this arduous task! I wouldn’t like the kapitan to pull a muscle! x

          • lallywendy

            How do you do a pleasure to meet you, sorry if I’m a bit late, just couldn’t get into my trousers, no matter how much talc I used! Done now, I can’t salute properly my nails are still wet …. sorry! oh yes kissing officers affords a lowly private some treats, the Kapitan too! giggle

          • HeyJude

            The pleasure is all mine! Understood, my nails are wet also. But I find that a touch of turpentine will remove the gooey layer after attending to the equine troops suffering digestive problems. Then they dry nicely.
            Would you like to borrow my saddle soap? I’m sure it would help with your trouser issues. :-)

          • lallywendy

            Gosh you are kind, so thoughtful to a ‘newby’ saddle soap do you use that on your face? yes, well interesting!

          • HeyJude

            Sort of…I suggest applying it to the “cheeks” when used as a trouser aid, though. :-)

          • lallywendy

            Oh thank you can be troublesome there!

    • 25sammy25

      Hi malta – You were warned, now she’s here !! lol. !!

      • lallywendy

        Excuse me madam don’t blot my copy book before we have been properly introduced! btw where’s my bubbly!? xx

        • 25sammy25

          Sorry Lally – Didn’t mean to. You’re quite capable of doing that yourself.! lol.!! Bubbly now chilling, if that’s what you do with bubbly. Being TT, I wouldn’t know. xoxoxoxoxo

          • lallywendy

            oooo some bf you are!! ICE ICE BABY!!! xxxxxxx

  • Richard M

    Not to worry. I have it on good authority that both are independently wealthy. It won’t inconvenience them in the slightest.

    • HeyJude

      Kapitan, see above for requisition request. XXXXXXXXX Private Lally has opened the floodgates….

      • Richard M

        If you can convince our wealthier members like 002, 003 and 008 to sign the checks, then leather trousers can be approved. Otherwise the Quartermaster has a 15 year supply of jodhpurs to distribute.

        • HeyJude

          Yes, Sir. 002 owes me, I will begin blackmail..oh, sorry, I mean negotiation operations immediately.

        • malta123

          Sir, 003 will make an exception in this case, always provided the cheque is counter signed by 002 and 008.

          • Richard M

            I calculate we have five ladies enlisted in party ranks now. Since only top quality leather trousers are acceptable, that would be an initial investment of $2000 per lady, for four sets of trousers. Plus trousers for the anticipated new members.

            I should think $20,000 apiece from each of you should be sufficient. In the short term.

          • malta123

            Not a problem Kapitan, the field pay officer will issue long term debentures, we will consider it an investment. The regiment prides itself in sartorial excellence.

          • Richard M

            As well it should, 003. Carry on!

          • malta123

            Thank you Sir.

          • lallywendy

            Ah so you are 003 are you? If so you have to show me what to do to be a good um…er…ah soldier thingy .. like how to march, not sure I can in these Louboutin shoes 4″ heels! suppose could wear my Ugg boots not really into fashion the military is it? Just a sec whilst I have my bubbly! xxxx

          • malta123

            Ugg boots could be a problem, 009, the Australian regiments have commandeered all of the sheep wool for the war effort.

            May I suggest Doc martins, these can be purchased at the nearest branch of Walmart, from our American cousins in the colonies.
            I must strongly advise you however, not to refer to the American colonies.

            All mention of The War of Independence and the Boston Tea Party has been erased from our Army journals, the regiment still lives in the glorious past, we must maintain radio silence in this regard.

            Only the Kapitan with diplomatic immunity, is permitted to mention these delicate matters.

          • lallywendy

            Do they do Doc Martins in pink with heels? I might be English but I prefer coffee so won’t muddy the waters by mentioning tea! Ummm do you mesn America Isn’t ours anymore? has anyone told the Queen? Yawn oh sorry sir darling must get my head down kissy kissy nite nite!!

          • malta123

            Morning 009, by special dispensation, the Kapitan has provided coffee as a substitute for tea. Our head of state is aware of the delicate situation that exists between the American colony and ourselves, all dispatches in this regard, are marked “Top Secret”.

            Have a great day, as they say in the US of A.

          • lallywendy

            Gosh that’s so sweet of you sir sweetie I do hope I’m not being a nusiance in my requests! I wouldn’t want the darling Kapitan to think I’m being precious about things! I’m a girl who can rough it with the rest …. although hope he won’t mind but do find the bunks a bit hard, so have arranged to have my super king foam bed to be delivered here whilst on duty, oh and the curtains that match to be hung! As for Top Secret oh I’m all for that I won’t mention a word of our late night meetings ;o) Must dash time for my facial, quite like that having to put mud on for camouflage so good for the skin,but I am using my dead sea face pack rather than what’s on site! So muh muh see you after my croissants and colombian brekkie sir! Oh one last thing could you have a word darling that trumpet playing so early wakes me up so, some Bach around 10 would be nicer! Must dash byeee xxx

          • takawalk

            wolfsden6lynn asked me to say hi if I saw you. Hi.

          • malta123

            Thank you, will wolfden be joining us for the curry lunch at the officer’s mess?

          • takawalk

            I’ll send her a invite. With all this leather gear quickly becoming the new dress code I wonder if wolf skins are allowed?

          • malta123

            Thank you Sir, wolf skins are permitted, always provided they have been properly tanned.

      • lallywendy

        Oh dear was like that when I was the first girl to wear hot pants to my school in ’69! Sorry! xx

        • HeyJude

          That was you? Excellent, maybe you should tell Kapitan that leather hot pants would save on talc, and would be suitable for our warmer weather attire? You seem to have a way with him…so if you’re inclined, I’ve always wanted a tiara and a sash, too…. :-)

          • lallywendy

            Have made a note will mention it to him over dinner! x

    • lallywendy

      Oh good sir I don’t want to be any trouble …. hic x

      • Richard M

        Excellent. Your provisional party number will be 0,000,009, pending approval by the Central Kommitte, tomorrow.

        Carry on 009. Consult with 003 about your basic training schedule.

        • lallywendy

          Oh 009 well I suppose it will have to do until I’ve seen my numerologist to see if that’s a lucky number for me! Mystic Meg wasn’t available to ask! ooo all this military stuff is confusing sir darling, but I like uniforms!! xx

          • lallywendy

            I’m terribly sorry sir darling do hope I haven’t caused any trouble in the ranks with my request to wear leather trousers, but I do look good don’t you think? xxxx

          • malta123

            The Kapitan is temporarily engaged on active duty, I have been given permission to speak on his behalf…..the regiment is proud of you, you have been awarded “Recruit of the Week”…carry on 009 and await further orders from HQ.

          • lallywendy

            oh gosh sir sweetie what an honour I am truly touched by that I really am ohhhh muh muh ooo sorry I shouldn’t have done that but I’m so excited here can you feel my heart racing …..oh sit down sir you are rather pale xxxxx

          • HeyJude

            I have much to learn from you, Private Lally. I have been in the ranks for weeks, and not so much as a cute little espadril and here you are in leather trousers and a racing heart. hmmmmmmmmmmm.

          • lallywendy

            giggle I know lol just a shame they couldn’t source the pink leather ones I’d set my heart on! Good fun this military life so glad the Kapitan allows me to do Mon to Fri, plus my hair and nail appointments Tues and Thurs He is such a sweetheart, rather dashing too – is he married?

          • HeyJude

            You are certainly bringing pizzaz to the ranks! Wiles such as yours have never been tried before….darn it! Ahh, well, now that you’re here, perhaps pink leather is not out of reach forever. :-) Kapitan married? I don’t know….he’s so hush hush and secretive, you know. Takes his work to bed with him, perhaps.

          • lallywendy

            I’ll let you know if he does! shhhh x

          • HeyJude

            LMAO! Secret is safe with me.

          • lallywendy

            Thanks darling if I can ever help….. have some good tips on body waxing might help with ‘under cover’ work disguises etc! x

          • Phil

            Body waxing!! the very thought brings tears to my eyes ;)

          • lallywendy

            ah sometimes there can be pleasure in pain! xxxx

          • Phil

            Yes, so I’ve heard lol.

          • lallywendy

            Boy does he take his work to bed! Hush hush!! x

        • malta123

          Provisional acceptance has been obtained, Sir, 009 has been enlisted as shown, on the bulletin board in the officer’s mess.

  • takawalk

    I accept a mission involving electromagnetic acorn shaped objects that for some reason many call saucers and I come back to find the dress code has changed, bubbles or alcohol is now allowed. I wonder what is next? I bet even Jude will eventually be corrupted by the evil M. Jude when Richard asks you to loan him your bic, just say no.

    • HeyJude

      Tak! I was so worried, it seemed that you may have fallen behind enemy lines. I am doing my best to be corrupted, but so far the Evil M. has denied my request for leather trousers. He is playing favorites in the ranks, I may have to turn double agent.

      • takawalk

        O don’t do that, I feel sure Richard has some grand design that we will better understand as time goes on. (or be too drunk and lustful to care) I might find a little nerve jolting Starbucks coffee much needed after this visit.

        • HeyJude

          Having just read down thread, I see now that Kapitan has allotted leather pants for all. And of course my threat ( LOLOLOLOL chuckle, gaffaw, snort) was merely to infiltrate the enemy Sektors. I certainly hope M will be drunk when reading this…..he can’t send me to any farther outpost. Can he???

          • takawalk

            I think our great leader has allowed himself to become preoccupied. I would never allow that to ……………… what did you say? (good to see you Jude)

          • HeyJude

            LOL And you, tak. I haven’t seen you on the articles lately, have missed you. :-)

          • takawalk

            It is all good on my end. My business doubled, it is a good problem to have.

          • HeyJude

            Ahhh, great to hear. When you have headaches, at least they are your own headaches.

          • takawalk

            Yeap.

          • HeyJude

            Do you think others peek in at the pub and think we are all insane? LOL I get a kick out of the cloak and dagger shennanigans. :-)

          • takawalk

            It is cool. I am glad you are here, I was about to run out waving a tap measure to insure lally was properly fitted for her leather trousers or boots. Being a guy it seems strange that saying hi to a friend was more important. Strange as it might seem to some, it is bedtime for me. It was good to see you Jude.

          • HeyJude

            Good to see you, too, tak. I’m honored, really. See you again soon, I hope!

          • Gina

            I must confess I not only take a peep, I follow the adventures as one follows a good mystery novel, codes and all. Still too shy to talk anyway, but reading you! The best of all threads…

          • HeyJude

            LOL! Hi Gina! That is fantastic…but now you KNOW you will be recruited, right? No need to be shy, since you’ve been reading you know that anything goes! Put on your best spy outfit, because the Kapitan will be knocking at your door. :-)

          • Gina

            Oh Jude I don’t think I’m capable really . I’m sorry! I feel too much of a foreigner, the English you have outsmarts me. I dig you all so very much, but being a part of it is still out of my reach! :) I’ll be near, loving it so much…and faving the comments!

          • HeyJude

            Ahhh, good ploy. Refuse the commission, remain invisible, and we will just know you are working with us under deep cover. :-) No pressure to reveal yourself…you are a super secret agent. If mysterious things happen on our missions, I will say “That must be Private Gina.”

          • Gina

            You are lovely Jude! :)

          • Richard M

            We have an undercover mission for you in Goa, India. Requiring the infiltration of the Bollywood film industry. It requires an agent fluent in Portuguese. Konkani would also be helpful.

          • Gina

            LOL ahem, Yes Kapitan, Sir. I think I would be perfect for the job! Awaiting instructions Sir!

          • Gina

            Yes, Kapitan, Sir! I believe I could be helpful! Private Gina awaiting for instructions Sir!

          • Richard M

            Excellent news! Your provisional Party number will be 0,000,010… I will dispatch the standard enlistment forms to your address there in Rio. Your tickets to Eastern Pennsylvania will be included. 004 will conduct your basic training there in the Pocono mountains

          • Gina

            Thank you Sir! 0,000,010, I’ll try to remember … Very proud to be serving Sir!

          • Gina

            Thank you Sir! Very proud to be serving Sir! 0,000,010, I’ll try to remember the #…

          • Gina

            Very sorry Sir, the mission is so secret the answer does not stay on the paper! Third time trying Sir! Awaiting on your orders Sir!

          • Richard M

            Yes. Secret dispatches are designed to self erase, until such time as we can provide you with an encryption key. Once your messages are encrypted, no outsiders can understand them. They will only see gibberish. Contact agent 004 to schedule your basic training in the Pocono Mountains of Eastern Pennsylvania.

          • Gina

            Right away Sir! Private Gina on the way to Eastern Pennsylvania for basic training…*( who is oo4?)*

          • Richard M

            004 has two horses for her avatar. She is an equestrian par excellance. You will soon be expert in Dressage, Eventing, and Jumping, not to mention Modern Pentathalon.

          • Gina

            Thank you Sir, I think I know her already, my pleasure. I hope you won’t be disappointed in my accomplishments!

          • Gina

            I think I know her Sir, my pleasure to be training with 004. I’ll certainly be lucky to go through that training( in one piece…)

          • Gina

            Our exchange seems to be suffering some kind of encryption Sir! lol Several replies appearing subsequently… off to Pocono mountains Sir! Isn’t it too much glamour for a training Sir, if I may ask…

          • Gina

            Our exchange seems to be suffering from some kind of encryption already Sir! Several subsequent replies appearing and disappearing… off to Pocono Mountains Sir. Wouldn’t it be too much glamour for a training Sir? If I may ask…

          • Richard M

            No. It’s no trouble for 004. She owns 30% of the Poconos region and has facilities to train you in skiing, snow boarding, and cross country equestrian sports.

            Lamborghini and Maserati will be available for your evasive driving skills course.

          • Gina

            Oh My! Will I be up to it? All so new to me I must say Sir! I’m more accustomed to a hard exercise routine…

          • Gina

            Oh My! Will I be up to it Sir? All new to me, I’m more used to a heavy exercise routine. Is that a 0,000,010 kind of life?

          • Gina

            Oh My! Will I be up to it Sir? More used to a heavy exercise routine, all this so new to me…Is that a 0,000,010 kind of life Sir, if you don’t mind my asking. *loving this, can the nonsense escalate please? :)*

          • Gina

            Kapitan, Sir, it’s the fourth time I answer you! It’s looking like another place I know. The answers are so volatile! I’m afraid this is such a new life for me, I’m used to a heavy exercise routine, no expensive sports Sir. I’ll give my best! Am I allowed to ask, Is this a 0,000,010 kind of life Sir? *loving this, can the nonsense escalate, please?*

          • Gina

            Well Sir, my answers never seem to hold! I’ll be in Rio waiting for the orders Sir. (So many good replies lost…) Off for now Sir!

          • Gina

            Sorry Sir page frozen, messages lost. It does not seem I’m the right private for the mission after all. If I may ask Sir, aren’t the trainings in British soil? Anyway, I’m off to Pennsylvania, according to your orders!

          • rg9rts

            Whinnniiiieeedeeeeeeeeee

          • HeyJude

            I heard that!

          • rg9rts

            15 and a inch + powder. Effin cold! Was out cleaning the car

          • HeyJude

            About an inch here also, just enough to cover the icy patches so that you fall on your a** everytime you step out the door. I have my yak tracks on my boots, I could break a hip out there! Why are you cleaning the car…do not go driving in this mess. LOL (I have to go to work this morning, though)

          • rg9rts

            It will blow away soon as the traffic starts only have about a 10 mi round trip to get done what I have to before thursday’s storm.

          • HeyJude

            Another storm……….. (sigh).

          • rg9rts

            Yup and maybe Sunday too

          • Richard M

            Make sure to check the snow for the tracks of robodeer and robo squirrels.

          • rg9rts

            Did you ever think of putting those teardrop spots on the tractor to see the signs??It has a kewl factor

          • HeyJude

            What? I can’t find the translation for this in the code book….. what teardrop spots and where do I put them?

          • rg9rts

            The lights that the cops use to get your attention while you are “parking”.

          • HeyJude

            Aha….Now I must ask you to continue, apparently there is an “Rg was parking one night and the cops came along….” story here.

          • HeyJude

            Yes, Sir. Shoddy maintenence by our adversaries has enhanced my tracking ability….paw prints with rust are a dead giveaway.

          • lallywendy

            shhhh you know we can all see this hic don’t you? Btw I’m good at Covert Affairs if I can help a month in a luxury Hotel in Knightsbridge might unearth some secrets, the barman know things and talk in their sleep ….so I’ve heard! hic

          • HeyJude

            I think it will be ok…Kapitan will come around to see that I’m merely trying to set up my sting, he pretends to be angry with me, and I infiltrate. I didn’t know where, but I like your idea of Knightsbridge. That does sound like the place to start! We could team up…you can exhaust the barman, and I can listen to his slumbering ramblings later?

          • lallywendy

            What a wonderful idea! so good of you to think of it!

          • HeyJude

            I must go, lally….so nice to meet you and welcome you to the Korps. :-) See you soon, I hope!

      • Richard M

        Tak’s classification is beyond secret–need to know. Therefore it is known only by 001, 006, “M”, and by the Central Kommittee. Agent Tak is our expert at paranormal and Alien technologies.

        • HeyJude

          I am studying for finals in Alien tech, Sir. Hoping for advancement in the ranks, would take a commission to work with Tak gladly, if the Kommittee finds me worthy. I am barely over 5 feet and 100 lbs myself, so the opportunity for recon on our star planet bases might work out well. My head is rather large also, I think they would not be able to detect my presence. Willing to amputate 4 fingers if that would help also. Sir.

          • Richard M

            Consult with agent Tak about transferal via Stargate to base Tau Ceti Epsilon, for testing and training. The gate is large enough to accommodate your head and fingers. Unless, of course, you were a shape shifting cephalopod. In which case the party has no liability for injuries.

          • HeyJude

            Oh, one could only dream of being a shape shifting cephalopod! No sir, I am merely an doppleganger for certain species of your everyday extraterrestrial common folk. I’m glad my large head will be accomodated by the stargate.

          • Richard M

            Cephalopods easily regrow missing digits. So be careful what you say. Enemy spies can deduce much from casual comments.

          • HeyJude

            :-X

  • Phil

    Q: What did the digital clock say to his mother?

    A: Look
    ma no hands!

    • HeyJude

      LOL! Nice entrance! How are you this fine evening?

      • Phil

        lol..I’m fine apart from being slightlu exhausted after working round one of my daughters today.

        • HeyJude

          What does working round one of the daughters consist of? Trying to have rational discussions with a 4 year old or building a house with a grown one? LOL Different issues….

          • Phil

            Building a downstairs shower room, I get all the good jobs lol.

          • HeyJude

            Wow, I’m almost psychic then. Hope it went well for you. Always good for a daughter to have a dad who CAN build showers.

          • Phil

            Your definately psychic, no had major problems, but got it sorted thankfully. I told her I’m retiring after this lol.

          • HeyJude

            Phil, nice to meet you, hope to see you again. Time for me to head down to my animals…many are awaiting dinner and a kiss on the nose goodnight. :-) I think the sheep count each other before they go to sleep. LOL Have a great evening!

          • Phil

            Nite, sorry took so long to reply my PC froze. Nice to have met you and look forward seeing you again. Take care.

          • Phil

            Hi Jude, sorry been so long replying, but couldn’t log on due to technical problems apparently.

          • rg9rts

            Right….hooking up all the plumbing

          • Phil

            Plumbing, electrics, moisture boarding, you name it lol.

          • rg9rts

            Leave the sewer connection to professionals!
            what’s the difference between snowmen and snow women???
            snowballs

          • Phil

            Oh yes, I don’t touch sewer connections, had some nasty experiences in the past with sewers lol. glad I’m not a snowman.

          • rg9rts

            Hold your snowballs

          • Phil

            Yes, all the plumbing is done now for the shower, and all moisture boards are up, taped and primed. Now it’s latexing the floor and plastering ceiling, messy job lol.

    • HeyJude

      I wish I could reply in kind, but for some reason I can only ever remember the one’s that are sure to be censored….. :-)

      • Phil

        Most of mine are rather ‘tongue in cheek’ hence why I left Huff lol

        • HeyJude

          Any reason to leave Huff was a good one. Life is better here at the Epoch times, I’d never want to leave here now. Wouldn’t go back there for anything at this point. :-)

          • Phil

            I agree, I had so many of my comments removed, they gave me my own skip lol, hated it in the end and I’d never go back. :-)

    • malta123

      lol…you’ll do Phil, report to the Kaptan for your enlistment papers and the issue of your service number and I’ll have it posted in the officer’s mess.

      • Phil

        Yeah!!! I’m in, cheers .

        • malta123

          You’re welcome, first pint’s on me. The Kapitan’s a bit tight, but it looks like lally is softening him up! Going to hit the hay now…Cheers.

          • Phil

            Cheers, I’m sure Lally has her methods lol. OK, I’m off to bed, take care, chat again soon.

          • Richard M

            I have an appointment this afternoon, with our newest double agent. Please see to issuing provisional numbers to our new recruits, and I will forward them to the Central Kommittee for confirmation. Back in six hours.

            “M”

          • malta123

            Wilco, Kapitan Richard M. May I respectfully remind the Kapitan that fraternisation between officers and other ranks is frowned upon by the regiment.

            However, special permission may be obtained in the form of a “watching brief” from the Kommittee’s sexual perversion unit.

          • Richard M

            The Kapitan must ascertain that key personnel have the attributes necessary to successfully complete their assignments.

            Sometimes a full debriefing is required to get to the bottom of things.
            So no need for concern, 003.

          • lallywendy

            not too soft! x

          • Phil

            No good being too soft is it lally lol.

          • lallywendy

            lol oh no perish the thought! lol xxx

    • lallywendy

      funny man! xxx

      • Phil

        Who me?, nah lol

        • lallywendy

          For a man yes darling! xxx

          • Phil

            Well thank you lally, I do like a laugh and joke and make others laugh xx

          • lallywendy

            So do I darling we should do well together! x

          • Phil

            I’m sure we’ll have a good laugh, Sammy know’s my sense of humour well xx

  • Phil

    Nite all off to my bed now, and I’ll leave you with this thought. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same
    night. Nite all

    • lallywendy

      Good point there thanks! x

      • Phil

        Hi lally, your welcome, very handy to know lol x

    • Richard M

      Your skills at avoiding sticky wickets would be useful in the C**P Brigades. Please consult with Malta003 about enlistment terms.

      • Phil

        That’s good to know Richard , thanks.

    • malta123

      Private Phil, you have been assigned the service number, 012.
      Field dispatch 12.26 Hrs GMT 11/02/2014

  • rg9rts

    Its 10 am do you know where your kids are?????

    • rg9rts

      Its 11 am GMT do you know where your parents and kids or anyone is???

      • HeyJude

        I’m down below….you woke me, so I’m here. :-)

        • rg9rts

          So you sleep on the couch like taps??

          • HeyJude

            No…king sized bed, otherwise the dogs have no room! When I sleep on the recliner couch, they tip me over.

          • rg9rts

            I’ll bet you spend more time in the petfood aisle than anywhere else in the store

          • HeyJude

            LOL! A woman commented on my buying (As she picked up 3 puny cans of Little Ceasars’). “You must have big dogs.” Well, yeah! I was tossing the 20 lb bags and jumbo cans, she seemed to find it amusing.

          • rg9rts

            I luck out there MONSTA is on a restricted diet.

          • HeyJude

            Oh, why? Does he have health issues that need that? Kidneys and such?

          • rg9rts

            Must be on a low ash diet and ONLY eats kibble.

          • HeyJude

            It’s tough though, special diets for animals are a lot of work, less so for you maybe since you just have the one Monsta. I find that when one goes on a diet, they all have to.

          • rg9rts

            Purina makes one so not really an issue. $8.50

            a bag

          • rg9rts

            Have to take a break or my eyestrain headache will come back

          • HeyJude

            I have barn duty, then off to work….so see you later 002!

          • rg9rts

            You should have shown her your pooper scooper

    • Richard M

      Shouldn’t that be kittens, in your case, 002?

      • rg9rts

        Talking to all the kitties. I was here quite awhile ago and all of ET was a morgue even here which has a 5 hr jump on us.

        • Richard M

          Yikes! I haven’t even looked at our Happy Hour and Agora, field ops areas, yet.

          • HeyJude

            Since you are going to round up the troops, I will sign out to attend duties. Will use my developing telepathic powers to check back in later.

          • Richard M

            Excellent! I will atune my oscillating harmonic interpolator accordingly.

  • againstitall

    Good day to you all, who’s round is it, I’am feeling thirsty.

      • Richard M

        Must be #10′s round but she’s not here. Nor is #9……So #8 it is!

        • 25sammy25

          Evening Richard – Don’t tell me they are deserting ET already. Yes, 008 it is. I keep being asked to edit my profile. What do they mean by that cause as far as I know I have completed it enough. Maybe I’m missing something. Chat soon. xxxx

          • Richard M

            Don’t fall for that trick, 008. The enemy is seeking our encryption keys.

            Deny and deflect.

          • 25sammy25

            Thank you Richard, appreciate your advice and will heed what you say. Scoundrels !!!

  • malta123

    Evening all…….

    • 25sammy25

      Evening malta – How are you today my friend. Any sign of Jill yet. I’ve been trying to get Huffers on here. As you saw, I got Phil on here. I’d love to post the complete steps to join ET on Huff, but doubt if they would allow it. Speak soon.

      • malta123

        Hello Sammy, it was suggested that contact via FB might be the way forward and then private mail after that, I just don’t understand the problem?

        PS. I’m fine thanks….you did well to get Phil on here.

        • 25sammy25

          Hi malta – Thank you for your reply. Do you mean she should join ET through FB. I did that initially and cancelled my account as I thought they were going the same way as Huff and didn’t want to be linked to FB. I put out a search for you on FB for private messaging, but you’re obviously under your name and I just know the first one. I can’t understand why Jill is having a problem as she said to me they asked that her username should have a number in it, yet there are users on here without numbers. Glad you’re fine and it was great getting Phil aboard. He is a gem who is full of jokes. Take care.

    • Richard M

      Greetings, 003. Have the new recruits over to Happy Hour, Commas and Agora.

          • Richard M

            Order in the ranks, 009. You must comport yourself with Regimental dignity while on duty.

            Time enough for frivolity at the Regimental Picnic, Parade and Polar Bear Plunge. Meanwhile a State of War exists between ourselves and the powers of evil.

          • lallywendy

            Sigh sorry sir darling but you know what I get like when I’m excited and the thought of dancing with you, in your uniform, got to me! Yes I know all about the powers of evil that traffic warden who gave me a fine because I spent too long in Harvey Nicks getting something nice to wear later! I was only 3 hours over time!! xxxx

      • lallywendy

          • againstitall

            Love that name, great song by Bobby Womack, called Gina.

          • Gina

            Sorry! The cursor is wobbly I ended up giving you a vote down, OMG!

          • againstitall

            No worries, what happens with vote downs?

          • againstitall

            Great name, great song by Bobby Womack.

          • Gina

            I’ve always liked the name, but Kons almost convinced me it’s a bad word! :)

          • againstitall

            Kons?

          • Gina

            Konspicuous, he hasn’t been here lately. I didn’t mind because I think he is cool. He said something about the Giants being ginas and calling them that could not be good lol . About the vote down, in fact it means nothing at all! :)

          • againstitall

            Thankyou Gina, that explains everything, keep the name its cool.

          • Gina

            I’ll keep it! :) It happens to be my name really.

          • Gina

            Did you receive my reply? I think I might as well stop trying to answer, they never stay on the page, thus I never know if they were read or not…Konspicuous, he hasn’t been here lately.

      Sir, the Bulletin board has been amended, accordingly.

    Why do men find it difficult to make eye contact? Breasts don’t have eyes, good day all.

  • againstitall

    A Chinese man rings his boss, “Me no work I sick.”
    Boss says, “When I’m sick, I make love with my wife. Try that.”
    Two hours later the Chinese man rings back, “Me better, you got nice house.”

      Great news, everyone! (Voice of Hubert J Farnsworth) Soon spring will be here. The Regimental picnic and parade will be especially cheerful this year.

    • Gina

      Thank you for the welcome Sir :)

      • malta123

        You’re welcome, Private Gina, I have put in an official request to the Kapitan, that you be invited to the curry lunch in the office’s mess, this coming Sunday at 1300 Hrs GMT, dress code, battledress No:1′s. Boots must bulled and all buttons shone to perfection with freshly applied Brasso.

        • Gina

          Certainly Sir! Thank you for the invitation

        • 25sammy25

          HI malta – Do you need a good curry recipe ?? Take good care.

          To any of Phil’s followers, he apologises if he hasn’t replied to any of you but is having a problem loading Disqus, but he will be back.

          • malta123

            002, on behalf of the regiment would be honoured to receive your recipe. I will have the cook house chef prepare the same, for the coming curry lunch.

            Half rations for rg, who appears to have deserted the ranks pro-tem.

            Chicken Curry Recipe :

            Ingredients

            Serves: 6

            1 chicken, about 1.5kg, jointed into 6 pieces

            2 tablespoons vegetable oil

            2 large onions, finely chopped

            3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

            2 tablespoons curry powder or paste

            500ml chicken stock

            1 tablespoon tomato purée

            1/2 teaspoon sugar

            2 tablespoons Greek-style yoghurt

            salt and freshly ground black pepper

            chopped fresh coriander to garnish

            Method

            Prep:20min ›
            Cook:45min ›
            Ready in:1hr5min

            Remove the skin from the chicken joints, if preferred, and season them with salt and pepper.
            Heat the oil in a deep
            frying pan or flameproof casserole. Add the chicken and brown it on all
            sides for 6–8 minutes over a medium heat. Remove and set aside on a
            plate.
            Cook the onions in the pan
            for 5 minutes until golden brown, stirring regularly. Add the garlic
            and curry powder or paste and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
            Add the stock, tomato
            purée, sugar and seasoning. Mix well and add the chicken. Bring to the
            boil, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 45 minutes or until
            tender, turning the chicken pieces halfway through cooking.
            Remove the chicken to a
            serving dish using a draining spoon. Heat the sauce over a high heat for
            2–3 minutes until reduced and thickened. Take the pan off the heat and
            stir in the yoghurt. Check seasoning, then pour the sauce over the
            chicken. Scatter over the chopped coriander.

            *Add a finely diced eating apple and a handful of raisins
            to the curry 15 minutes before the end of cooking. You can substitute
            cream for the yoghurt. Serve with boiled rice or warm naan bread.

            Please do enjoy this recipe.

          • malta123

            Excellent, 008. Thank you. I was of course accepting the recipe on behalf of 002 and the regiment, hence the half rations for rg…lol
            I have requested an Observer’s course for you at the first opportunity, always provided the Kapitan can spare you from cook-house duties..carry on, 008.

          • 25sammy25

            You’re welcome 003 – Think half ration would be enough for rg !! lol. I would appreciate an Observer’s course and I’m sure the Kapitan would spare me from cook-house duties to improve my skills. 008 now off back to duties.

          • rg9rts

            No cayanne?

          • 25sammy25

            Sorry sweetie – This is a quickie version, cayenne can be added to taste !! Speak later. xoxoxoxo

        • Gina

          Yes, Sir! I’m from the Colonies Sir, all rituals very new to me. Curry lunch? In a battledress? Buttons will be shiny!

          • malta123

            I understand your concern, Private Gina; allow me to allay your concerns by providing you with a brief history of curry lunches at British Army mess functions. Sunday is considered a day in the army calendar, where the invitation of wives and family to the Officer’s Mess, is both permissible and acceptable.

            Today’s curry lunches in the Officer’s Mess, are derived from the traditions and practices of the Peninsular Wars and the British Raj in India, in the Victorian and Regency periods.

            Without the facility of modern refrigeration, curry spices were used in the field kitchens for the preserving of meat, both wild and domestic, from becoming putrid in the campaigns conducted in overseas
            territories where the climate was hot and arid.

            Battledress, is standard army clothing issued to all recruits comprising of rough serge material with sufficient pockets to house a
            soldier’s military necessities. Brass buttons were used for fastening the pockets. The material was itchy and uncomfortable.

            Number one’s is the term used to describe battledress made from finer material, worn on ceremonial occasions where appearances were of more importance.

            I have the honour to be your tutor in the traditions of the regiment and trust that I may be of future service, as you progress through the ranks from Private to NCO and thence to officer class. All promotions, will of course be listed on the bulletin board, in the Officer’s Mess.

          • rg9rts

            The Colonies always opted for the blend into the background and went au natural

          • Gina

            Thank you for a much needed enlightening speech Sir! It is my honor to have you as a tutor in the traditions of the regiment. I hope you will not have reason for disappointment Sir! *saluting*

          • Gina

            The honor is mine Sir. Thank you for clarifying. *salute*

          • Gina

            Sorry Sir, already answered several times, comment does not seem to hold to the page!

    • Richard M

      Hmmm. You neglected to mention that 002 is also the Regimental Psychoanalyst and Weather Modification director.

      You also omitted our expert at Paranormal Activity, Alien Technologies, and undercover Black Ops, Takawalk. Whose numerical classification must remain secret.

      • malta123

        The bulletin board has been amended to suit, Sir.

        • Richard M

          LOL!

  • Richard M

    This year the annual Regimental Polar Bear Plunge will be held at Serpentine lake in Hyde Park. The date will be Tuesday 02/25/2014. the actual plunge is scheduled for 11:33 as usual for the last decade.

    Regimental standard briefs and bikinis will be provided, complete with the Regiments Coat of Arms. Looking forward to seeing you all there.

    • takawalk

      I am going to be engaged in some black helicopter events on that date. Sadly I will not be able to attend. I hope someone will taking some pics. There is a urgent need to better understand the effects of cold on the female body. Perhaps a intense study of those pics would help me to contribute to the cause.

      • Richard M

        Good point. I will assign an extra videographer or two, to record the festivities!

        • takawalk

          That ability to think on your feet, listen to or dismiss the thoughts of your subordinates is why your make the big bucks.

          • Richard M

            Yes. It is good to be “M”…….So I can count on your vote in the upcoming election?

          • takawalk

            You got my vote.

  • Canukistani

    I say mates, how can we Pastafarians in the colonies offer our support when we hear stories like the following?

    http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/02/11/university-tears-down-flying-spaghetti-monster-posters-for-offending-christians/

    We’d appreciate it if you kind chaps would look into it and set things right for all our sakes.

    • malta123

      Thank you Sir, a field dispatch has been sent to the Kapitan for perusal. A report will be forthcoming, shortly.

    • againstitall

      I have already registered my concerns, that no sauce or garlic bread was depicted, shocking.

      • rg9rts

        Northerners. White sauce only

        • againstitall

          Being a Tomatotarian, I couldn’t do it, the Northerns can have bechamel sauce.

          • rg9rts

            Whatever floats your gravy boat

          • againstitall

            I love gravy, but it must be brown, in a boat or not, I’am not fussed.love Sammy’s curry.

      • Canukistani

        It’s adding insult to injury I say, First they want to persecute the Pastafarian faithful then they even have the impudence to display their depiction of the FSM au naturel , as it were, without the customary accoutrements. This university is clearly a blot on the reputation of our fine English compatriots and should be dealt with accordingly.

        • againstitall

          Our Linquineist is penne ing a servere condemnation, of their tardiness, it has been signed by the Messicani, Dischi Volante and the Eliche Grandi, the papparelli will be all over this, more news later.

          • Canukistani

            Excellent! I’ll inform the members of the faith that the matter is well in hand and await developments.

        Finally …I thought I was saddles with the talking heads on the boob tube…. Did Phil and Lally get straightened out???

        • malta123

          Yes, but your rations were reduced, see below….I’ll check with the cook-house to see if we can have full rations reinstated for you.

          • rg9rts

            What was their problem?? allison 1050 had issues too and was stuck on the disqus blog site.

          • malta123

            Ahh..cross purposes, I’m not sure, have not heard from either of them.

          • rg9rts

            Sammy said they were pretty upset. Allison eventually found out that she had to dump history and cookies in order to get back on disqus. Also Magna Dave said that avast antivirus and ET are not compatible

          • malta123

            Blimey, Brigade communications falling apart, rally the troops, 002 and have the perpetrators put on latrine duties.

            Just don’t pissinto the wind

          • malta123

            The British contingent are unfamiliar with these terms.

          • rg9rts

            The Toronto contingent are well aware of the import of that statement

          • malta123

            That must be so, I guess. Permission to break into civie talk…what’s going on with ET?

          • rg9rts

            I think it is more disqus still having trouble with their maintenance issues

          • malta123

            Got it, how are you today, anyway? Looks like the Pub is catching on eh? Perhaps we might put in a request for an officer’s and NCO’s mess?

          • rg9rts

            Screw the mess just the club… Winter is getting to me too cold too long and looking at another foot of snow tomorrow. Also having a lot of eye strain headaches. 3 F right now.

          • malta123

            Yup, can see you have eye problems, club or Pub? 3 F? Minus then?

          • rg9rts

            -16C The NCO clubs were always more fun. better food and the fights were to be remembered. Nothing nicer than stepping over your NCOIC’s body. SAD seasonal Affective Disorder is the rage in the area. The kids are looking at going to school on Saturdays to make up for the number of snow days. Atlanta is getting a real lesson in what winter is all about. The home of the Weather Channel LOL

            Cognative Psychology is very interesting, are you ready for me, I might reveil new insights into the workings of the mental processess, never before researched, even at Shutter Island.

          • rg9rts

            So whats bugging you?

          • againstitall

            Thats for you to find out, As far I know,nothing, but who really knows.

          • rg9rts

            ALL behaviors are on a continuum it is only a problem when your behavior is to the extreme. either way. Too much or too little.

          • againstitall

            Thanks Doc, now I know I’am normal, that’s a relief, I owe you.

          • Richard M

            Glad you’re feeling better, 007. By way of thanks we will expect you to bring three kegs of Guinness to the Regimental Picnic!

          • againstitall

            Be my pleasure, I’ll bring some Dublin Bay oysters as well, thankyou for the invite.

          • rg9rts

            A lot of what is normal is what society defines as normal. In certain places hearing voices is a blessing in others a curse.

          • againstitall

            Hearing voices is a curse if heard by the religious.or mentally deranged, there is a thin line between the two.

          • rg9rts

            Like I said……it depends on the culture. In the land of the blind the one eyed man is king……..till they poked it out to improve his vision.

          • againstitall

            Very true, my friend, keep an open mind.

    I got “followed” by some dim bulb named sweet pea…..3K+ comments all of which are “hoe N-word”

    • rg9rts

      Why??

      • Richard M

        I have no clue, except it has followed over 9K people. I suspect that it is mentally unbalanced. Look at its profile off my followers list, if you have a curiosity.

        • rg9rts

          Were you ever on the hiphop site? I think those are the only words he knows that and !!!!!!!

          • Richard M

            Never, until just now. The site does seem to have many intelligent expressive common taters.

          • rg9rts

            Maybe they exiled this clown. You have to love his avatar

          • againstitall

            Where is this sight.sounds like fun.

          • Richard M

            Good evening, 007. Just look at Sweet Pea’s profile. From any public profile you can click an individual comment, or click the web site or story thread.

          • againstitall

            Thankyou, am I right in assuming that if you go private no one can see your posts, of follow you.

          • Richard M

            Correct. You can’t see posts or lists of friends and followers, either. Just click any private profile and all you will see is their screen name.

        • Gina

          Looks scary and reiterative!

          • Richard M

            I know darling I was kidding, as for age well known fact women mature earlier, I certainly did! I knew we would marry after a couple of dates, took him a bit longer for the penny to drop lol x

          • Phil

            Women do mature earlier than men, especially these days and your experience sounds very romantic and it was obviously the right decision to last 38 yrs x.

          • lallywendy

          • lallywendy

            Well as I started to reply to this I got thrown off! So I rest my case MY computer obviously didn’t like what I said, instead of a frank and honest conversation it did what men often do, threw it’s hands up and stomped off! Darling my beloved thinks watching the Test whilst listening to me is multi tasking! Bless! xxxxx

    An American woman of 40 wants to get married, but she is only willing to marry a man who has never been with a woman sexually. After several unsuccessful years of searching, she decides to take out a personal ad.

    She ends up corresponding with a man who has lived his entire life in the Australian Outback. And after a long-distance courtship, they decide to get married.

    On their wedding night, she goes into the bathroom to prepare for the festivities. When she returns to the bedroom, she finds her new husband standing in the middle of the room, naked and all the furniture from the room piled in one corner.

    “What happened?” she asks.

    “I’ve never been with a woman,” he says. “But if it’s anything like screwing a kangaroo I’m gonna need all the room I can get!”

    Three nuns were in the church the other day and the 1st nun says, “I was going through the Father’s office and do you know what I found? A bunch of pornographic magazines!”

    “What did you do?” the other nuns asked.

    “Well, of course I threw them in the trash.”

    The second nun said, “Well, I can top that. I was in Father’s room putting away the laundry and I found a bunch of condoms!”

    “Oh my!” gasped the other nuns.

    “What did you do?” they asked.

    “I poked holes in all of them!” she replied.

      A pretty girl spots a nice material for a dress and
      asks the male clerk: How much does it costs? “Only one kiss per yard,”
      replied the male clerk with a smirk. “That’s fine,” said the girl. I’ll
      take ten yards.” With expectation and anticipation written all over his
      face, the clerk quickly measured out the cloth, wrapped it up, and then
      teasingly held it out. The girl took the bag and pointed to the old
      man standing beside her, and smiled, “Grandpa will pay the bill.”

      Been watching Sky News and am thankful our part of Middle England seems to have escaped the worst, but forecasters are saying next week may get what the US has been through so might see snow! xxx

      • malta123

        • lallywendy

          Am indeed had planned to move away once my beloved retired, he did couple of years ago when 60, one reason we stayed was we seem to escape bad weather! That and the fact we have a cricket club at the bottom of our garden! He’s like a pig in muck! Do hope you and your woof woof are okay! xxx

          • malta123
