Philip Whiteland | 3171 comments Isn't it amazing that you post blog posts over the years and get dribs and drabs of interest but put one post on that mentions Ronnie Barker's Arkwright and get over 1,100 views in a matter of days!

That's extra!


Gingerlily - The Full Wild | 36808 comments Extra difficult to read?

It would depend on the design. You might get away with a white horse in the snow.


Gingerlily - The Full Wild | 36808 comments Yeah, but you can bet that a crucial word would be obscured by his eye or something.

Firstly, there aren't any crucial words. Secondly, he's blinking.

Except a gag, that's trickier ;-)

Jim | 22173 comments He's a writer, he should be able to


Gingerlily - The Full Wild | 36808 comments Oh and I'm sure you can too Jim!


message 22: by Philip (new)

Philip Whiteland | 3171 comments A writer? Finally, recognition :-)

You've got a Webster! The whole publishing world will bow down before you!

Oh, that's what they were doing, was it?


Gingerlily - The Full Wild | 36808 comments Just ignore the fact that they were facing away from you...

Nothing new there, GL ;-)


Gingerlily - The Full Wild | 36808 comments And I'm sure it was a complete coincidence that their belts broke all at the same moment...

Philip Whiteland | 3171 comments You should have a go, it's quite fun. Not sure it does anything for book sales, but still...


message 39: by Jim (new)

Jim | 22173 comments I've done a little but it was because I was, for a while 'an expert' :-(

Ah, I've never been an 'expert' but I did lecture in HRM for a good many years and it was the performance aspect of that which I found I was missing.


message 41: by Jim (new)

Jim | 22173 comments I confess that when I was an 'expert' and had an hour to fill, I tended to talk for twenty minutes and then get the questions session to become a group discussion, because that way I knew we were talking about something that interested them :-)

From the look of things, it shouldn't have bothered ;-)

Philip Whiteland | 3171 comments Thanks Jim...I think ;-)


message 47: by Jim (new)

Jim | 22173 comments I cycled through Torremolinos over thirty years ago now and it looked like a somewhat upmarket Blackpool, more 'St Annes' than Lytham

We stayed there for a week as a cheap 'add-on' to a cruise. It was actually very pleasant until a certain U.K. football team's supporters arrived for a match. Thereafter, you were reluctant to speak English for fear of being tarred with the same brush!


message 49: by Jim (new)

Jim | 22173 comments yes we ate at a bar half way out of town, were offered tapas, bought beer at the same price as locals, and our bikes were brought in off the street by the owner.
Then a bunch of football supporters or whatever arrived, had one very expensive drink and left heading back to beach area :-)
