    Was it the West Riding one in Wakefield?

    If so, this article and these portraits may be of particular interest.

      My toilet has been blocked for a few hours. I'm remaining calm and trusting warm water to clear it in time.

          It cleared with a big more warm water. Phew.

            NS's post reminds me that Latrice's litter box needs sorting out.

            People claim to be the pinnacle of evolution, and the most intelligent animals to have graced the face of the planet, so why is it that she lies on the floor watching and purring contentedly as I clean her toilet up for her, rather than the other way around?

              I had a very fun weekend playing tour guide in San Diego. I had a sarsapilla yesterday afternoon in honour of treibeis. We were playing around up and down the bay coast on the new e-assist bikes that Uber have put in the city. They're ridiculously effortless to ride, and loads of fun. Before that, we played 18 holes on Torrey South. San Diego was doing its "America's Finest City" thing. Everything was good.

                This was on Saturday evening, watching the surfers at sunset from the Pacific Beach pier.

                    Shouldn't that be on the photographic thread? (nice photo though)

                      I thought about it, but it's kind of associated with the previous post

                              I've just taxed my car. Surprisingly effortless considering it's a government department.

                              Does anyone else name their cars? Ours is called Marco. It's a Polo.

                                In my limited experience, newquay has more fat seals.

                                  Ours is called Duty. It's a Civic.



                                  No. That's not even remotely true. I just made it up...

                                  It's called Engagement.


                                  No...that's a lie too.

                                    Ours is called "He made a.... me" (it's a Passat)

                                      Ha! Mine made a...me too.

                                        That was very nice of you to do so. Thank you.

                                        The crucial point, however, is how you acquired it. Did you order it like a normal person or like somebody in a film? If it was the latter, I'd be delighted if you could answer all the following questions with "yes":

                                        - Did you know the salesperson's name?
                                        - Did you sit at the bar, wait for ten seconds and then yell, "<Imprecation>! What's a guy gotta do to get a <imprecation> drink around here? <Imprecation>!"
                                        - Did a man in a T-shirt with too much chest hair sticking out of the top then walk up to you and say, "Hey, mister! That ain't no way to talk to <name of salesperson>"?
                                        - Did you then say, "Just back off, buddy. I've had a bad day, okay?"?
                                        - Did he then pull up a stool, receive a shot of something without having ordered it and then say, "You and me too, man"?

                                          Ah tish and fipple, old man. Have a heart. I start a new job at the end of the month after 11 months off. I deserve a holiday to prepare.

                                            I appreciate the engagement, WOM.

                                            A new avenue of car naming has opened up. I wish now I'd called my old Cavalier, Larfin'

                                            For history, my cars
                                            Cavalier - name: Eeyore (number plate letters EYAW)
                                            Blue Escort - unnamed (nothing stuck then it got rammed and written off)
                                            Grey Escort - unnamed (hated it from day 1 so never named it)
                                            Golf - name: Peetab (number plate letters PTAB)
                                            Vectra - name: Boog (sort of named after the bear in Open Season because it was a big black beast of a vehicle, although the bear in Open Season wasn't a black bear)
                                            Polo - name: Marco (because Marco Polo)

                                              Mine should be called Perez, as it's a Prado. But it isn't.

                                                My sugar bowl and milk jug set arrived. Hoorah! I do need to get a tray to set it off, now the season for breakfasts on the terrace is almost here.

                                                Something rather strange happened a bit earlier which I would love to share but I can't on a public forum (not sex-related), all I will say is that I have a funny and serendipitous life. My friend Mr Deluxe used to talk about gifts from the Loonyverse - well, I got one today.
