Coffee or tea?

Otherwise known as the Games Room, think of this as a subforum of the social club reserved just for sociable icebreaker games. Beware - they can be addictive!

jaywhat, I'll answer the question when I get around to it.

I wonder if there is anyone on this forum who is not profoundly relieved to see the back of George Dubbya. Though I have some respect for McCain, I have vanishingly little for Palin and most of the other Republican candidates, so I'd say Democrat.



If you lived in Luton South would you vote for Esther Rantzen in the next General Election or one of the main parties?

Id be tempted to lodge a protest vote at the next general election. Ive grown to detest the laddish silly behavior in parliament inc question time and also the machismo and pomp which runs through political life. We also need a different kind of MP.

Esther?.....er......possible, well ok then, well actually no, to be honest it'll be one of the main parties. However if it was J Luc Picard that would be another thing altogether.

I do like both but right now we are into autumn, season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, with the mornings starting to be just a bit cool. The fire is made up ready to light if it gets really cold or miserable; I must buy a load of logs soon. Autumn it is.

Winter time - would you prefer to stay at home whatever the weather or if you could afford it, would you go somewhere warm to avoid the winter weather?

Stay at home, I like winter. Well, I like the contrast between all the seasons.

"Right now we are into Autumn"? Where the hell is Badenoch? Somewhere on Iceland? Yes, days are getting shorter, but it's not autumn. At least not here in Sussex.

Edit: oops, forgot the other important bit:

North or South? (could be Britain, or Europe in general - i.e. The Med and the Latins, or the Baltic and the Germanics/Celts)

North. It's where I am. Badenoch is in the Highlands of Scotland, Hundovir, where autumn is said to start on 1 August.

Tesco was full of summer visitors this evening but that doesn't alter the fact that there was rime on the grass this morning and the trees will soon start to turn. Why not join us next weekend? Sussex is in the far south of England, isn't it?


Fancy meeting other TH members or keep it only as an online forum, at interweb's length?

Very keen to meet other TH members, but keep missing the get-togethers. Not sure I'd go as far as Scotland, though. Unless I were going up there anyway, for a holiday. Which is a nice thought.

If you had a small enclosed garden would you prefer it to be a paved courtyard or traditional lawn plus borders?

Difficult one as I can't imagine moving to a home with a small garden. Small areas of grass are a bit pointless, so I think I'd have to go with paving with tons and tons and tons of containers.


which do you hate most; iorning or cleaning windows?

With a small group, though the reality is usually solo these days.
