I'm utterly confused here (and perhaps am one of the people in your original post - sorry!) but isn't wage and sage a soft 'g' too?

EDIT- No, perhaps I do know what you mean. There is a sort of 'd' sound before the soft 'j' sound in sage and wage that isn't in beige ... is that it?

We,ve got two massive 100 year old Sycamores in our garden - I'm rather fond of them (but not the seedlings on the lawn, true)

Salad_Burnet 07-06-2017 09:31 PM

Lets add those pointless oak trees you see in the middle of corn fields that force tractors to go round them. How inefficient. And hawthorns and blackthorns you get in hedgerows that block the view from the lane. And ancient beeches on the north downs that are a catastrophe waiting to happen. Chop 'em all down.

Dear God, this site's lost its soul

Spot on! Sorry for being a dick in the first place and not describing exactly what I meant. After reading your replies I began to question myself!!
Wage is kind of 'way-dje' and similarly sage is 'say-dje'. But beige has, and always should be pronounced as 'beyzh'.
Now I've confused myself and I'm off for a lay down :confused:

People who come out with a load of idiotic racist/homophobic crap then when called out proudly say things like 'I speak my mind, i don't hold back, it's my opinion and if you have a problem with that then tough shit, I'll say what I like'

What they sound like in their heads: confident, important and speaking the truths no one wants to hear out loud

What they actually sound like: arrogant, loud mouthed self centred tactless ignorant wankers.

Just as I give Daley Thompson, Magnum P.I., Ron Swanson, and my Dad (for a brief period of time in the 70's) a free pass as to people who are allowed to don a moustache, Michael Caine gets a pass on the word 'Beige'.

Join Freecycle and give them away to anyone who will pick them. A lovely lady visits us every year and picks them off our tree to feed to her pigs.

Oh dear... I think I pronounce it bay-dje.

Not sure if it is a Croydon thing or an American thing... my accent is pretty ****ed up now!

Too right, although this year was a bad year for blossom, so hopefully for apples too. The apples are actually very nice but are so high up you can't reach them and the cats aren't interested in being trained to bring them down gently......

I'll have to Google that thanks. I wonder if I could use the moth damaged a fruit as it just gets wasted. I'll have to start home brewing at some point, I have hops, gooseberries, raspberries, red currents growing too.

Maybe it has something to do with the sites i visit and 'connections' I have but
I have been surprised by the large amount of Labour activity (personal and sponsored) which outweighs the Tory stuff/advocates. If the result were based upon the volume I would think it would be a Labour landslide. Not long before we find out now but I think the result will be very, very different from that predicted when the election was called. Hardly news I know but still a surprise bearing in mind the chaos just before in the Labour Party and Corbyn demands some acknowledgement of that. Whatever the result his job is safe now I reckon.

I made a rare visit into London yesterday and didn't see a single famous person in real life.
That other thread on the BBS is full of fantasists.

However it did give my obviously​ latent racism an airing, on the Tube the only words being heard were in foreign languages at high volume. I assume all the Brits were doing the quiet, reserved, no eye contact, no speaking, stiff upper lip thing, as we are taught to do.

I also have the CNN App on my phone (Well I am in America) and this one and the BBC one are basically identical in format as well as news stories.

When viewing one, I tend to not realize which of the two I'm in.

Also a lot of the stories link to a video, which I'm not mostly interested in... I just want to read the story.

Nothing worse than a jack-knifed baby buggy

I was forced to then update the app. I HATE it. All BIG pictures looks more like a teenagers magazine rather than a news site ��������

The web page is no better.
Awful drop in quality over the years to the point I rarely look at it.

Not to forget all Ian Wrights abandoned off spring and all the other double surnames on most every team sheet.

People that cross the road directly in your path without looking or making eye contact with you, with the knowledge (faith) that you will not run them down and take evasive action.. seems to be mainly the young that feel this is a good idea

Fat Brits who, whilst staying at our house rental, break the toilet seat and two, good quality, wicker chairs with their fat facking arses!!!

We once allowed friends of friends to borrow our car.
When the clutch cylinder started to leak they used engine oil to top it up.
It worked fine for the next few days but then, once they had gone home, it mysteriously failed.
Cnuts.

Stalwart Tory and Labour supporters that bang on about their ardent beliefs without being able to see the other side of either argument (and glossing over any policies they dont like from their own party of choice).

Even worse are the ones who use two surnames but without the hyphen then get all arsey if anyone puts one in. Many years ago, I used to work with a bloke like that. But, to be fair, this is more common among the moneyed wannabe set.

There are a couple of threads on here you want to give a very wide berth to....

People who don't press the button on a crossing even though they are crossing on a road that is busy and wait for you to do it for them.
