    Thanks for all the shaving tips. I have had a lot do with Shepherds, and they are the most misunderstood dog out there. By their genealogy they are just so gentle by nature, all they want to do is look after their flock, which is now us, they are not vicious, but can be protective if someone threatens their flock-US. But as a companion dog, they are beautiful, so intelligent and so loyal. You have a good one there.

    Thank you, John!

    Thank you, my friend. As far as my cupholder... Well, you're looking at it ;). It doesn't get put down until empty.

    Thank you, Jack! I was delighted to see a nearby brewery crafting such a unique style. I always just assumed that folks made their own Braggot by mixing beer and Mead....


    Well, I managed to get my outside chores done for the most part so I'm treating myself to a couple of brews and some cigars.

    I hope everyone is having a pleasant weekend so far.

    A mighty fine dram If I say so myself. The knife is also very nice too.

    Morning Guardians, hope everyone is having a good weekend. I'm hoping to be able to make a proper post at some point today, but currently, I'm locked out of my PC while Windows updates are installed. So far it's been an hour, and only 20% of the updates have been installed :mad: Have a pleasant Sunday folks :thumbsup:

    Great pics Leslie, and thank you for the shaving recommendations :) I've not tried Astras, I've been using Feathers a long time now, but I might give them a try some time :) :thumbsup:

    That's a cool pic John :D Hope you get moved back in OK my friend :) :thumbsup:

    Nice pic Bill :thumbsup:

    I'm pleased you're liking your Hartshead Barlow my friend, I think you'll find it a tough knife :) :thumbsup:

    Great to see you here :) :thumbsup:

    That's nice Rachel :) I know what you mean about putting knives away, I try to keep most of mine out of sight when I'm expecting visitors. Nonetheless, there are currently 6 on my desk, 28 on my coffee table (half of which are in a box), and 25 on my kitchen table! :eek: :rolleyes:

    Thanks for thinking of me John :) If I'd known the final stage of the Windows 10 update would have kept me locked out of my PC for 2 1/2 hours, I might have thought about staying in bed ;) :D :thumbsup:

    Sorry to hear you've been in so much pain ED :( I hope things are better today my friend :thumbsup:

    :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Looks like a great afternoon (?) Vince, though I'm sorry you were disappointed with the result :( Hope it was an entertaining match at least :thumbsup:

    Good point Harvey, they have certainly left a legacy. I think you'll enjoy it a lot :) I'm sure I'd enjoy that doughnut! :D :thumbsup:

    Glad you're liking it Mike, I have found it hard to kick out of my pocket myself :) :thumbsup:

    Great knife :) :thumbsup:

    Another excellent pic Dan :) :thumbsup:

    Looks good to me ;) :) :thumbsup:

    I'd have thought the same Dylan :) You've got the making of a great time there my friend, cool pic of your DamLamb :) :thumbsup:

    Cool pic Mark, wishing you and all our Guardians a very happy Sunday :) :thumbsup:

    Your welcome. :thumbsup:

    I've had beer, I've had mead but never Braggot. It sounds an interesting drink and I'm going to have to track it down. Seems the perfect drink for this time of year. :thumbsup:
    Here's a link to an article on Anglo-Saxon drinks you may find interesting.
    https://www.tha-engliscan-gesithas.org.uk/archives/the-alcoholic-drinks-of-the-anglo-saxons

    That's a great drinking horn btw! But do you have a holder to place it in?


    That reminds me of a programme I watched recently about our combat pilots receiving training in the U.S on the new F35 fighters. This RAF pilot was sat in one and to get it started he had to enter a username and password. :rolleyes: Inputs them; nothing. Tries again. Nothing. And again. Nothing. The U.S pilot enters his own username and password. Nothing. Several attempts later they've still not been able to get this plane started/switched on. :rolleyes:
    The progression of the West eh....:rolleyes:

    Yesterday was 'Lancashire Day' in the county of Lancashire. So as the weather is rubbish I thought I'd take a trip up through a part of Lancashire on a steam train along the East Lancashire Railway on one of our heritage lines.

    First some Morris Dancing.

    Lancashire pie.

    At one time Lancashire was the home of the Temperance movement in Britain. In the town of Rawtenstall you'll find the last Temperance bar in the country.

    Where a warm Sarsaparilla certainly helped. :)
    [​IMG]

    And then some Lancashire ale (Moorhouse's Black Cat Reserve), Lancashire crisps and Lancshire Gin (that wasn't mine).:)

    That is absolutely crazy David! :eek: I was on a bus the other week, which broke down due to a computer error. A lot less serious than an F35, but the driver said it happened all the time o_O

    Those are great photos David, what a fantastic way to celebrate Lancashire Day :) But I thought it was on the 27th November :confused: Methodism was very big in Sheffield too, and while temperance certainly wasn't, there were a lot of temperance bars there when I was a kid. I remember going in the last of them, Jack's Temperance Bar in the 1980's, not long before it closed :thumbsup:

    Your right Jack sorry I worded that poorly; it is the 27th. I should of said it was being celebrated yesterday as it's gone like most our celebrations; shoehorned into the nearest convenient weekend. :rolleyes:Not that it seems as popular as Yorkshire Day, which seems to have a much higher profile within Yorkshire, than Lancashire Day does in Lancs.

    Thanks for mentioning that Temperance Bar; I'll look that up. Of course, our cities are still full of 'Temperance Bars'. There called Starbucks. :rolleyes:

    And we have appalling bother with computers at work; sometimes resulting in serious delays to patient care. :rolleyes: My job most days now seems to be stood at a computer watching a blue circle go round and round. :mad:

    Thanks mate, I'm glad I haven't missed it :thumbsup: I don't like the way celebratory days just get moved around the way they do, but that did look pretty good. Hopefully it will continue to grow in prominence :) There's an independent coffee shop half a mile up the road from me, which now has a Caffe Nero to the left, and a Starbucks to the right. They have a sign outside proclaiming, "A Rose Between Two Thorns"! :D :thumbsup:

    That is absolutely terrible about work :eek: :thumbsdown:

    I did thanks John, it was pretty good, even at 3 hours plus :thumbsup:

    Nice choice! :D :thumbsup:
