  1. I've had several emails from a very attractive woman suggesting I become her stallion. And several others of the same sort. I wonder if she knows that I'm an unattractive bald bloke in my 60s?
  2. Mrs T often calls me a bald **** and I've told her I'm calling the police if she continues to do so.
  3. That's a beauty. They were to be found in Hertfordshire 50 years ago, but probably not these days. I saw a lizard today while clay bashing in Kent, which I suppose is down to today's temperature.

    Das Boot.

    Saw somewhere that the original dialogue on board was inaudible because of the machinery noise, so the actors had to redo it all. Then, because the main actors were bilingual, they re dubbed the whole thing again in English for the international market. Not sure if true though!
  5. Ha ha yes. Kept mine in a jam jar. And, not something I admit freely, but I used to take paper cartridges out of the box and sniff them. Youngsters don't know what they're missing.
  6. Me too! 'Acquoil' I think it was described as in the instructions in my Parker Hale cleaning kit. The resulting liquid turned white I think. I tried to describe it to someone recently who thought I was nuts, so thank you.
  7. I used the green Baikal ones in the 70s. Horrible, but cheap. The 9mm garden gun cartridge with the green and white chequering - is that paper? My dad bought a box of similar ones and the paper burnt, creating an impressive muzzle flash and ashes in the barrel.
  8. Had this conversation the other day. How long will billionaire oligarchs allow Putin to make their lives difficult?
  9. I read a piece a while ago about capercaillie hunting in Sweden. Forgotten most of the details but they stalk them and shoot while sitting, which is a very difficult thing to do as you can only move while the birds are calling, or something of the sort. It takes great skill and judgement apparently.
  10. Thank you chaps. I'd better start looking down the back of the sofa for some change!
  11. Having struggled with passive over ear defenders (effective, but can't hear instructions or anything else for that matter) and in-ear plugs (fiddly and easily lost) I'm thinking of buying some Peltor SporTacs, on the grounds that they're what many people seem to use. Any thoughts please?
  12. Very much like the F3 game cartridges. And the LiteSpeed clay ones.
  13. I think it's brilliant. Mrs T has to gear herself up to watch as she takes much of the scenes of medical treatment personally.
  14. Embarrassed to admit I'm watching and enjoying very much. Good after a drink or several.
  15. That's interesting. I'll find out if he had any maritime connection.
