  1. Ask ‘ how are you ? ‘
    Just because I look okay doesn't mean I am ok.

    Just because i don’t talk about it doesn’t mean I don’t want to talk about it.

    Be there

      Very true.. sounds you're in a bad spot and I know very well what that’s like hope it will be okay.

      Thundery wintry showers

      It depends on how one means "How are you?".  When people ask me "How are you?" it's usually a coded prompt to get me to say that I'm "fine", which is especially tricky when suffering from depression or even just feeling down.

  2. So Sad to hear of the passing of Keith Chegwin....aged 60.

    3. lassie23


      apparent suicide!

  10. Absolutely amazed to learn that there were only 12 episodes of The Young Ones?! Absolute comedy gold ...it seemed there were so many more.

    1. Nick L

      The best comedies only had a few episodes! Fawlty Towers being another glowing example.

      Disagree tbh. Only Fools and Horses?

      Although OFAH did become 'long in the tooth' towards the end imho. but after way more than a few episodes.

      Not in my generation, but a death is a death RIP.

    3. Dancerwithwings


      Just got in from work and seen it on the news, my jaw hit the floor,Shocked and more so saddened by he's sudden death, seen him LIVE in Bottom, a comedy genius that will be surely missed :(

      First thing I watched when I was a nipper was Bottom. As I grew up I started to catch up with The Young Ones and also still have Drop Dead Fred on VHS... definite comedy legend and will be missed by millions! :(

  12. 7 years today my beautiful princess was taken to heaven ..aged 7 1/2 she was taken far too soon.Just wanted to say that i will never forget that special smile and your cheek.You were so brave,yet never complained once.As an adult i was humbled by how you took your condition on...we moan about so much in life and forget how precious our time here is..Sleep tight baby.

  21. Whats happened to the hurricane season this year? Seems very quiet.

    2. DR(S)NO


      Wasnt it meant to be an above average hurricane season.?

    3. summer blizzard

      summer blizzard

      Yes and it's more than possible that it still will be in terms of named storms (we have another looking to develop in about 5 days and Fernand may be declared a hurricane in post season analysis) but in terms of major hurricanes it looks like slim pickings



      Global warming,warmer seas more major hurricanes..........errr no.

  22. Sleep well tonight.and dust off the barbies...The Express says theres an 86f heatwave on the way ..and its here to stay!!

    1. Isolated Frost

      Isolated Frost

      I don't think it's got to 86f here since 2006!

  23. Any thoughts on when the first widespread frosts are likely to occur? Whats the average time of year? Other than just winter!?

    1. Show previous comments  4 more
    2. Isolated Frost

      Isolated Frost

      First air frost, mid-September, widespread ground frosts generally in October, but it all depends.

    3. Eugene


      The average for first air frost in urban areas in southern UK is as late as late October/early November, valley areas in the midlands alot earlier than that but there are no records

    4. Bottesford


      Preferably after mid Oct to let the crops ripen. Bonfire night will do!

  24. Do you say aitch or haitch for the letter h?? Is one more right than the other?

    1. Show previous comments  2 more
    2. DR(S)NO


      I have always said aitch...but more and more people appear to say haitch...i wonder why it appears more prevelant?

    3. CreweCold


      they just say aitch, with the letter they're trying to pronounce in front of it. So it ends up haitch.

    4. cheese


      Pronunciations change over time, and people in different countries can be influenced by how other nationalities pronounce things. Haitch is the most common way of saying H in Ireland and Australia, and appears to be on the rise in the UK, too. Kind of similar to how people will now sometimes say garbage or dinner over rubbish or tea (and I've tended to say those words too).

  25. Miserable day...its like Autumn out there...still Summer weather making a return soon

    1. Bottesford


      Not too bad here - bright 'n breezy with no rain. Needs to be warmer mind!

    2. Richard2901


      Awful here. It's definitely like October. Dull and windy and now the rain has started temp has dropped from 16C to 14C. Yet again this summer, with the exception of 23rd to 25th July, the worst weather has been at the weekend and the best while I'm stuck in a sweltering office :(

    3. Bottesford


      Yes it is frustrating given that yesterday was lovely and today is so breezy and damp. Got guests coming today and wanted to sit outside!
