What Alan C said!

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

I am quite happy that I have finished the very sweaty job of installing a new ceiling fan and that it suits my décor better.

I am quite happy that I have now had a shower and got unsweaty.

I am quite happy that now I will be able to sit and read on hot days, with the fan going, and not be disturbed by the continuous bzzzzsqueakbzzzzsqueak . . . that has regaled me so far this summer.

Ah! But that's not a 2 hour, Tim focussed extravaganza with an accompanying 50 piece orchestra!!

I am really quite happy that the house has now quietened down for the night
I am really quite happy that one of my daughter's rabbits was euthanased this evening (that spelling looks suspiciously incorrect)
I am really quite happy that my hubsand returns home on friday.

'euthanased' ? It used to not be used as a verb so I guess you can spell it how you like. I suspect I have used it myself so no calling me a pedant there eh!

I have the idea that it is becoming a verb over time unless it suffers a natural death.

I am pleased that I can now get on the internet after a 2 day breakdown.

I am pleased that my printer is fixed, and doesn't need to be replaced

But most of all, I am delighted to remind Getreal that Tim Minchin is on Wossy's Friday Night show on BBC1 tomorrow at 10.35pm :D

Thanks Alan. Unfortunately, it's a kiss and run tho' cos I'm still snowed under - but thank-you so much for making my day. :D

Now - where's my cape, I'm off to save the world again (or something like that......) :exit:

Much as I love Tim Minchin I couldn't watch that self centered egotistical tw*t Ross.

The school breaks up tomorrow so I won't have to go there for the next seven weeks.

I'm on crofting duties for a week starting tomorrow.

Mince and tatties for dinner tonight.

I am very happy that Nick has reminded me about Wossie tomorrow (because I never usually watch it) :kiss:

I am really quite happy that I got to spend the afternnon in the company of my dad and granddaughter

I am really quite happy that the remaining rabbit ("Angel". It was "Spike" who was euthenised-or whatever they call mercy killing of animals now) appears to be settled without his lifelong pal (Angel is totally blind and relied on Spike to get his bearings)

I had a good evening at my fiend's last night, a nice wine, excellent pepperoni pizza and Al Pacino's "The Merchant of Venice (recommended)

I am feeling virtuous because I have finally got round to hoovering the stairs*

I have finally finished installing the new drying lines in the bathroom.*

(* These are starred because I bought a new, super powerful, hand held vacuum cleaner for doing the stairs, the car and DIY jobs. After drilling the holes for the drying line fittings I needed to hoover up the brick dust - out came the new toy. I held it up and moved towards the pile of powder. Inadvertently I got the nozzle of the cleaner within about 2 inches of the loo roll. The roll had about a quarter of an inch thickness of paper still on it - "had" being the correct tense. Before I could hit the "off" button the new toy had ingested all the paper off the roll!)
