No, it was born to be alive. How long before the Van Helsing of the Internet will start to deploy all his heavy weapons (garlic, holy water, cross, ash stake) against necroposting?

I was just thinking that ... Jan 28

... i.e. that Tom's thread should be taken out for a walk.

Want to know something frivolous? I've just found that bicarbonate, warm water, lemon and vinegar takes the nasty black bits off kitchen/bath/shower tile joints.

I know it's useful as well, so really this is usefully frivolous or frivolously useful.

Shantytown Jan 28

My preferred version, courtesy of teenage daughter, is here. Fun story about a bunch of lads dressed up a bit Wham becoming a meme sensation a year or two ago and then being deepfaked...

In 2007, there was a hugely successful thread on the Italian forum, regarding cleaning tricks & tips: https://www.proz.com/forum/italian/73992-esiste_un_prodotto_definitivo_contro_il_calcare.html

Now Mervyn, yours is a sneaky attempt at necroposting, if I ever saw one.

Sea shanties Jan 28

That fabulous friend of mine, Barbara Carrara, has just sent me the most wonderful sea shanty, and I have to share it with you all, me mateys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjVDmMI4sbk

I find this performance so very moving, and I hope you'll like it too. Enjoy!

Heard him on the radio some days ago.

Scottish postie Nathan Evans has quit his job and signed to a record label after storming TikTok with sea shanties.

Nathan said the singalong craze for his The Wellerman rendition exploded in just a matter of weeks.

And Friday sees an official release of the shanty, after he was picked up by Polydor records.

The 26-year-old from Airdrie said it goes to show that if you keep going anything can happen.

I’m bored Feb 1

Bored, bored, bored. Out of my mind. Even more bored than Lincoln, I reckon.

And, yes, I know boredom is a symptom of a lack of imagination. But hey, I’m a translator. I just mimic what other people say. I don’t have ideas of my own.

Discuss.

Or send me a joke. Or a loaded gun. Anything.

You could try your hand at crocheting a mini cute Boris doll.

OK, this is too much even for me Feb 1

The lovely big nuts squirrel from the first Great British Bake Off series is still a classic:

That picture has a famous name, but I can't remember what it is now. Pitchfork Blues?
