    Peeps with degrees

    Just half listening to the Hairy bikers on the telly, some wench pontificating about the fire of London ..... What is Lathe & plaster? Must be what I understood as LATH & plaster, LATHES are what I used to turn metal parts years ago.

    Ger off it, I thought you still used wattle and daub.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Not just a shoe box - bloody luxury indeed - but you get the middle of the M6 too? Jammy bugger, that's what I reckon!

    I live in a toilet-roll middle at the bottom of the compost heap, and I think myself lucky if I get the veggie peelings & old teabags raining down on me.....

    Shoebox....pah!
