Re: Which instrument for you?

The quiz suggests I learn to play the drums. Interestingly (or not) I played the timps in the Uni orchestra for a couple of years, but moved on. It can be quite nerve-racking - if you have 452 bars rest to count, but you get it wrong and hit the buggers a bar early, EVERYBODY notices. :lol: My drea...

When Banks funded Leave’s referendum,
He said here’s three million, now spendum,
Believing that rules
Are just there for fools,
While Bad Boys are able to bendum.

Yes. "A Brief History of Humankind", (466 pages), does sound a bit intimidating, but actually it's very approachable. I just got a bit sidetracked by Daphne du Maurier... :thumb

Re: What book are you reading at the moment?

I picked up a collection of short stories by Daphne du Maurier several months ago and quite enjoyed them. The first in the collection was "Don't Look Now", made into a film in the early 70s by Nicolas Roeg. So I moved on to "Rebecca" (1938), her classic novel, again made into a film by Hitchcock. I'...

Re: Brexit consequences

And another view, this time from the Canadian Globe and Mail. "A self-destructive madness grips the U.K. as a no-deal Brexit looms." The article is almost a week old, though little seems to have changed in the last few days. What we are witnessing may be a nation, not just going into economic recess...
