McTag,

Your post made me laugh...it reminded me of me and my sister laughing over bizarre shopping lists. I once sent her to the shops for: A tin of anchovies, a 60watt lightbulb and a stapler (make of that recipe what you will).

But yours beats the lot: Banjo skin, drawing pins and a pair of shoes! Laughing

Has Mrs Mctag been to Lakeland yet? (if you can get in the carpark...loads of 'ladies who lunch' in 4 x 4's). I love it. Went the other day when Ruth came back from NY...bought some luxury clothespegs!

Mrs M would love it...it would have the most butch lesbian feminist drooling over their kitchen wares! Very Happy

Bloody hell, a newcomer. Welcome Ceara. Any friend of Sarah is a friend of us. If I may be so presumptious as to welcome you to her own thread, that is.

Everything in Manchester is fine; the weather today, and City won 3-1 yesterday.

60 Minutes (on CBS) is running a story on Tim Howard, the American goalie playing that "other" football team in Manchester ... Manchester United.

Ticomaya...seeing as if your an honourary Mancunian, I am prepared to forgive your use of the U word on this thread!

Say sorry now...there's a good boy Very Happy

Any further use of the U word, will be swiftly followed by a smacked botty! :wink:

Henceforth, should the need arise, I shall only refer to it as "that other team." :wink:

Tim Howard is a brilliant goalkeeper, though he has suffered a dip in form recently.

Unusually, he is suffering from a mild form of Touret's Syndrome, I learned somewhere. It doesn't seem to affect his playing ability, though.

Welcome, ceara

I think it is Newcastle: http://www.tvtome.com/OurFriendsintheNorth/ seems to say so, as well.

Your a total legend Kitchen Pete. Thanks for that site. Christopher Eccleston is a fantastic actor. Daniel Casey looks deifferent in that site to midsomer murders.

ceara,

Please tell me who you are! No-one EVER calls me smorgy...you imply that you know me...from where?

Why am I your buddy?

Please reply on this thread (if you can't reply to a PM).

It's not fair to come on like you know me and then not say anything else.

Cheers!

smorgs.
