Hello Forkers - February 2017 Edition

Hosta   I'd happily listen to stephen fry reading the telephone directory 


Did you ever hear that lovely series of letters between Napoleon's and Wellingtons horses - Stephen Fry read one side - I've forgotten who read the other, but it was absolutely blissful - I could listen to it over and over again

I agree SGL  an 'ordinary' towel rail attached to the wall above a radiator works for us downstairs and in the upstairs bathroom where we have more space a freestanding Victorian style wooden towel rail stands in front of the radiator and keeps all the towels dry and warm and the room comfortable

Dove - you are not alone re Harry Potter books. I did watch an HP film on TV.


See original post

 I've not even done that .... it's not that I intentionally avoid doing so ... just that they don't appeal.  Fantasy fiction isn't really my cup of tea, although in my teens I enjoyed readying Tolkien and also the Gormenghast trilogy.


I did try Terry Pratchett's Discworld books, but they really held no interest for me.

Oooh, I wasn't aware of that LG - I think I'm probably the only person left who's not read any Harry Potter .... however I had understood that she was pretty scrupulous about her use of language

LG   there are so many wonderful words in the English language and we use so few of them - I do try to use as wide a variety as is consistent with clarity - I've a feeling some people think I'm being a bit 'off' sometimes, but I like variety in my life, and 'use it or lose it' is very true.

Well, even universities have marketing departments nowadays - they function like commercial enterprises now, more's the pity .......... but I do think that in this case Mike is being overly cynical - as has been said he probably didn't read the link in detail - he was posting in the very wee small hours

type of screening?

Sorry you're having such a grim time - you probably know all this but I thought I might as well post it anyway

BL    I thought I was better - I'd had several days when I felt 'almost normal' (no tittering at the back there )


and thought I'd try some gentle exercise ....... "What a mistake-a to make-a!"


It seemed to cause a relapse, and now I just can't stop coughing - I started to change the bedlinen this morning but OH came and took over as even that bit of 'exercise' had me in a paroxysm of coughing. I'm not bronchitic and don't have a raised temperature so nothing to worry about ... it's just bdooly annoying
