It’s all right, I’ve cancelled Selhurst Celtic out by marrying a fenian.

We are not in fact practicants of our respective sects, but my youngest did once attend a communion by mistake and accepted the snack they hand out. So I guess heís one of yours.

Priests offer a variety of ďsnacksĒ, or so I have heard. I was too ugly an altar boy to ever find out if it were true.

Although we did refer to Newcastle Brown Ale as Moon Juice in later years, and I did my bit trying to see if you drank enough of it you did go to the moon!

No, an Oxford comma always appears between the second-to-last item in a list and "and"; what you have above is a pair of commas enclosing a non-defining clause.
Interestingly, the University of Oxford style guide says not to use an Oxford comma unless it is to prevent confusion.

I think you only use the comma there if an item in the list is complex, and you have to use it if that item itself is a list or similar combination including"and" again.

I am intrigued by what the question would be to prompt an answer like..'I don't use it for that'.

Sex and the City had an episode where a conveniently shaped massager ( or somesuch) was being used for a different purpose..

When I had my Honda Shadow (1100cc v twin) my fitbit used to record the miles as if I were Jogging lol.I now have a Samsung Frontier and it`s awesome.

4th attempt today.

All systems go. Everything looked good, GPS connected, hit the start icon, next screen appeared showing ride time etc.. I get to my stop point for a drink break, and take a look at the Fitbit. There is a message on the screen* that the GPS disconnected.

Get home and check it out. It did record heart rate and calories burnt, but no map or miles traveled.

I have to admit that I'm very close to returning the damn thing. I definitely would have already if it wasn't a gift.

* I should add that the screen is almost impossible to read in daylight, and definitely impossible with sunglasses on.

Close... I have a few more weeks left before the return date limit.

I never thought I would say this, but I'm looking at the Apple Watch. Circa $150 more expensive, but reviews are very good when it comes to cycling, and does a lot more with a better interface. It maybe a case of you get what you pay for.

I'm also looking at the top of the line (circa $500) for my wife as it would monitor her heart condition (real time ECG's and AFib alerts). I'm going to get her to ask her cardiologist this week what his opinion is.

Can you tell I'm lock-down bored!

Allegra Stratton. She's only been in post for about 5 minutes, but she already annoys me.

Is she the PM's next spokesperson, because he can't even be arsed to do that bit?

The expectation that I instantly understand how to use any piece of software or hardware ever invented.

Shopping experience at the moment is get it done as quickly as possible and get the hell out of there, so mindlessly scanned through all my shopping and forgot to get an assistant to take off the security protective case on my razors. Didn’t set the security alarm off either???

Can’t take it back as 1) I can’t be bothered and 2) I’ve no receipt so will probably think I’ve nicked it. I’ve tried to break it open but for the life of me, I just can’t. So before I take a hammer to it, anyone got any ideas?

Hit it with a bottle of aftershave. I've heard sometimes Brut force works?

All systems go. Everything looked good, GPS connected, hit the start icon, next screen appeared showing ride time etc.. I get to my stop point for a drink break, and take a look at the Fitbit. There is a message on the screen* that the GPS disconnected.

Get home and check it out. It did record heart rate and calories burnt, but no map or miles traveled.

I have to admit that I'm very close to returning the damn thing. I definitely would have already if it wasn't a gift.

* I should add that the screen is almost impossible to read in daylight, and definitely impossible with sunglasses on.

Have you tried linking it to your phone,sync etc.This is where the samsung Galaxy is so superior to others,big bright screen with multiple faces to choose or download your own.

Did exactly that with a bottle of Vodka,didn`t set the alarm off either.In the end I used a hacksaw but I`ve since been told proper shoplifters work magic with a magnet.

What ever happened to our good old "streakers" Haven't seen a good one for years. Cmon girls. No guys please!

Mad Max 12-01-2021 06:04 PM

Ok so we`ve all been here (Lidl in my case).You`re trying to work out which checkout is running fastest.You pick one then it all goes to shit.The 3 you didn`t pick are running as sweet as a nut.My till,the two people in front are not separate but actually together and unloading enough food to feed half of England.With about 9 items to go woman packer cuts her finger on the edge of an egg box.All hell breaks loose as Lidl staff run about looking for a plaster then to cap it all off 3 items from the end checkout girl decides the Oranges look dodgy and another member of staff is dispatched to find a replacement.:wallbash::wallbash:

I'm always annoyed that these are actually put in security cases like this anyway. I went to get some replacement heads for my sonic toothbrush recently, and had to get assistance to unlock them from a security cabinet.

It's a funny old world we live in these days...

In regard to the in-built GPS, there is an option to use your phone's GPS, and/or a combination of in-built and phone when needed.

Seems a bit of a cheek as they sell the Fitbit as having in-built GPS then it doesn't perform and relies on your phone. Also they let you know that using the GPS diminishes battery life.

I sync to my phone, but begrudge letting my phone do all the work... what's the point of the Fitbit if my phone can pretty much do it all less the heart rate and sleep recording features.

In the new century the powers to be have done everything they can to demean the F.A Cup. Once the greatest cup competition in the world it's now being turned into more of a farce with the double draw (4th and 5th) yesterday. Why? I assume it is covid related. I'm not for one minute underestimating the virus, but how does it prevent a couple of codgers picking balls out of a hat? One of the highlights of the season as a youngster was getting the early edition of the Evening Standard and saying a quick prayer before turning to the back and seeing the draw. Or hanging out at the school gate at dinner break hoping one of the dads would have a transistor handy.

I don't disagree, but the level of apathy on the BBS towards the FA Cup from a reasonable proportion of people pre-match on the Wolves thread suggests it's not just the powers-that-be who have that attitude. Perhaps that would have changed had we progressed a bit further in it... Personally I think Palace winning the FA Cup would, in the words of Phil Oakey, be one of "the things that dreams are made of." :sob:
