    i love the seasons, i love mild februarys, it reminds me of my childhood exploring the countryside. making dens in hedgerows, sheltering from the rain, hearing the mistle thrush singing as the mild sw wind blows dark clouds across the sky. many records from the mid 60's remind me of these times.. overlanders 'michelle'. 'keep on running' , 'uptight', 'little by little' (dusty).. then back to our coal fired home to watch 'robinson crusoe' , jackanory, blue peter, thunderbirds .. this is why the bartlett to me is welcome. i love the spring. the first catkins, celendines, ladysmock, nests, the countryside in spring is heaven.
    i love the heat in summer, the hot southerly draft, 'trance' music is so apt, i love the thunderstorms too.
    in the notorious winter of 81, i had to work outdoors , ive never been so cold. i felt sick and numb with it. i think thats when i lost interest in snow/cold.

  1. Things that tick you off?

    crimbo..... it has been taken over by commerce, its rammed down our thoats since bonfire night. its lost its appeal because of this. it used to be fun when it grew organically and we had chance to indulge at our own pace. but now we are forced into it whether we are ready or not. its like being told 'you can now start to enjoy crimbo' , you cannot be told to have fun, it evolves naturally, organically.

    new to me too... it was 'rouen' - hold me.

    shocking..... (chegwin)... a bit of an idiot but a harmless one, this is sad news.
  4. whats not to like about a good snowfall?.... days of slush or ice, the cold, the cold, THE COLD... high heating bills, dangerous roads and footpaths, being stuck inside unable to work or metal detect. the fall itself is fun, and for a couple of hours after its finished. then though its just a vile frozen/wet mess.
  5. In Memoriam

    sorry but boo hoo... he was a loathesome creep... i cannot feel sympathy for him.
  6. fortunately my comment was light hearted. i dont care about the snow although prefer to have none.
  7. covered with the damn stuff....
  8. anybody want my snow?.... looks like im in line for a dumping tomorrow and i do not want it!
  9. with respect to them, it wouldnt be the first time they, or others, have been wrong. lets face it, havnt we all?
  10. Would you have a problem with this?

    nope, they must learn that there are specific times for toilet, and that going in lessons is disruptive. of course the obvious omission is illness.
  11. at this time of the year anyway (still, slate grey skies) . its not stupidly mild but not cold enough to be unpleasant when working outside, and its dry! no rain, no fog, no dew. yeah i agree about a truely memorable event, im not a fan of the cold, but i do like a proper decent blizzard. so for me its all or nothing. chasing the snow (mod thread) is pretty pointless until a blizzards iminant, a farty bit of snow simply isnt worth it imho.
  12. wonderful winters day today ... dry, calm, cool, overcast. stay like this until mid feb please! yeah i know it wont
  13. Make us laugh

  14. Things that tick you off?

    sorry to hear about your father, and rest assured i have no problem with old people nor the ill. my post was referring to an experience i had last friday where the aisles were full of people who were gawping. of course some might be near senility or ill, id never chastise them, but the majority i encountered if not all, were not in that catagory.
