Sad to say I just Goggled it... none the wiser to be honest. Other than cockneys are apparently rather good at it! Something to do with dropping a bunch of the letter in a word (example Bo'le for bottle).

I thought the example of the Yorkshire definite article was a good example, but it's when you put a pause or gap in your speech by momentarily closing then releasing your glottis. That is, a gateway in your throat which closes off the airflow in your windpipe.

If you're from London you might render "butter", "water" as "buh-er", "waw-er". (Essex: "buh-uh", "waw-uh").

A lot of Londoners would substitute a D for a T ...as in, say “bedder” instead of better. Almost slightly American, if you will.

Don’t get me started on people who pronounce “News”as ”nuuuus”, as in rhymes with blues.

Got my 6 monthly blood work results back yesterday, and my glucose and triglyceride numbers are through the roof high... I suspect drinking too much wine during this lock-down is to blame.

For a lot of the kids growing up in inner cities, the whole bike life scene (the wheelie and tricks etc) is an incredibly positive part of their life. It provides a way of gaining respect from their peers without hurting anyone or causing harm. A lot of these kids are also learning engineering and mechanical skills they otherwise wouldn't get. If you google the likes of Jake 100 and Mac Ferarri you'll see that they are role models to literally thousands of kids, keeping them out of gangs and out of trouble.

Try driving along a freeway out here at about 60mph, and have a guy overtake you on a motorbike doing a wheelie.

Or more interesting still, a guy standing on the saddle arms out like Jesus... who I'm sure he will be meeting in person sooner than later.

Not that I’d quite wish that on them but a packed pavement wheelie on a massive mountain bike does seem to be irresistible to white teenage boys with shit haircuts.

They quite often have a little handbag pouch on while they do it.

Last week I used UPS to send a £5500 cartridge to France, they did not acknowledge that it had been delivered until 48 hours later ( it should be immediately) this followed a collection where the driver tried to take the parcel by hand with out any concern for distancing.

They then asked me to forgive and use them again!

That does not read correctly, the cartridge was damaged and sent away for repair, a brand new one would cost big money if not repaired.

The way media is banging on endlessly about premier League restart, but no word at all about whether or not FA Cup will continue. Does no-one care at all?

I stopped caring about the FA Cup the moment the ref whisperer got Milivojevic sent off.

Two finals, no cup. Bollocks to the whole thing.

I assume you mean this season.

Personally I stopped caring about the FA Cup the moment Manchester United withdrew from it to play in the World Club Final about 25 years ago. (I think that's what it was)

That was a bell that can never be unrung and was the day the FA Cup started its death march, followed by 5:30 kick-offs for the Final, Semi-Finals at Wembley and Friday and Sunday games.

(Although I did go to the 2016 final... Well I had to)

When you only want one nut and bolt and the smallest size they do is packs of 100!

Go to a car factor or plumbers merchants. They usually have boxes of mixed nuts, bolts, washers etc.

I have always felt that it is ruddy galling and indeed dis-respectful, dis-courteous and sheer bad manners when people do not have the decency to utter 'Please' and 'Thank You' when it is appropriate to do so.

Has boiled my 'Red corpuscles' and on several occasions I have admonished those who have fallen below these standards.

:grrr:

They then asked me to forgive and use them again!

That does not read correctly, the cartridge was damaged and sent away for repair, a brand new one would cost big money if not repaired.

I used USP only the once and that was poor.

I complained over the phone and knew the USP person was deparate for me to swear at him down the phone (as was I), so he could end the call; but I didn't. I kept on saying what they had done wasn't good enough and referring to them as 'Utterly Pathetic Service' and how all their competitors were much better.

I felt much better after that. :afro:

Very difficult to know who to use, it seem that as soon as you find a good company they get swallowed by the big boys and return to go!:D

200% agree, but thought the look of disgust on his face when Boris cut him off today was priceless.
