One man's meat is another man's poison (I think - dunno about castles)

If wishes were horses, beggars would ride (alwiays liked that one)

We had to learn proverbs and similes at primary school - and were tested on them each week!  This thread sure brings back some memories!!!


Hope the memories are good ones, shrinking violet.

No, it's definately to do with acastle or palace, but same meaning.(pig sty comes to mind but sure it's not that, )


Apple a day keeps the Doctor away a onion a day keeps everyone away



oh, I know (I think) 'an Englishman's home is his castle'

'for crying out loud', why are we 'keeping up with the joneses'.

you're 'as sly as a fox' and 'run me ragged' in fact you 'run circles around me', 'a right rigmorole' and 'that said' i'm going to 'send you to coventry' unless you give me 'a helping hand'.

'You've got me wrapped around your little finger' 'it's a merry dance you lead' with your 'wise cracks' and stop telling me 'to let sleeping dogs lie'.

i know 'there's nowt so queer as folks' so stop being 'sly as a fox' and thats the 'end of story'.

Clueless - didnt know the onion one!

This silly quotes thread is 'doing my head in" - I 'eat, drink and sleep' silly quotes. Can't get enough, can't get a good nights sleep. If I've said it once I've said it a hundred times. Now don't make me say it again. I've told you once i'll not tell you again. I need my beauty sleep. Goodnight sweetheart.sweet dreams.dont let the bed bugs bite.
