I have finally quit my job at the can-crushing plant.



I couldn't stand to work there any longer. It was soda pressing.

"Gyfeillgar" = 'Friendly'

"Codi llaw"; literal translation 'lifting a hand'; "codi llaw" is a colloquial Welsh term for waving, whilst passing in a car or across the street.

Or from the snug to the saloon bar Smile

But never from a conformist church to a Congregationalist chapel Laugh Wars have started over less.

Made myself unpopular at home last night.

Youngest daughter came round for a some advice, she is considering a change of career but is unsure which direction to take. She currently works in a care home for the elderly. She said she enjoys taking care of people but she finds it difficult being so close to them when they die.

With this criteria in mind I suggested she might consider becoming a sniper.......

A wealthy 60 year guy old is getting married to a young woman of 23.

At the wedding, a friend asks him "Apart from your obvious wealth, how did you persuade such a young woman to give up the best years of her life tending to a 60 year old man?"


"Simple. I lied about my age."


"Oh right. How old young did you tell her you are?"


"I told her I was 89 Wink "

A Husband and Wife are Christmas Shopping at a busy shopping center just before Christmas.

The wife suddenly noticed that her husband was missing and as they had a lot to do, so she called him on his mobile

The wife said "Where are you, you know we have lots to do."

He said "Do you remember the jewelers we went into about 10 years ago, and you fell in love with that diamond necklace? I could not afford it at the time and I said that one day I would get it for you?"

Little tears started to flow down her cheek and she got all choked up …

"Yes, I do remember that shop." she replied.



"Well I am in the model shop next door to that."


(Shamelessly nicked from ham radio forum.)

It is with great sadness that I have to mention the loss of a few local businesses around our Town. The bra manufacturer has gone bust, the Fish Shop has Floundered, The Office Supplies Company has gone in to Administration, the Prosthetics company has lost an Arm and a Leg, the Book Binders have gone in to Chapter 11, the flannel company has thrown in the towel, the swimwear company has gone under, the manufacturer of food blenders has gone into liquidation, the Herb Shop have had the Bay Leafs in, a Dog Kennel has had to call in the Retrievers, the local newspaper has folded, the Heinz factory has been canned as they couldn't ketchup with orders, the Glue Manufacturer has become Insolvent, the Paint Shop is in the Red, the tarmac laying company has reached the end of the road, the Gift Wrap Company has entered in to a Pre Pack, the bread company has run out of dough, the clock manufacturer has had to wind down, the Take Away has been taken away, the shoe shop has had to put his foot down and given his staff the boot, the Record Shop has run out of Johnny Cash, the Undertakers have faced stiff competition, lost the plot and have gone under, the Fishmonger has taken a battering and his son's plumbing business has gone down the pan, the Sign company didn't see the writing on the wall, the coffee shop seems to have closed for no grounds at all, the electricians have just pulled the plug, the Fruit shop has gone pear shaped, the Trampoline Company has been bouncing cheques, the Ice Sculpturing business has had to liquidate their stock, the builders have gone to the wall, the Backstroke Swimming Team have gone Belly Up, the lift makers have closed their doors for the final time, the watchmaker has received a winding up order, the Nail factory has knocked it on the head, the Torpedo Manufacturer has gone down the Tubes, the Auctioneers have lost the lot, the Diving Board Company has flopped, and finally the laundrette has been taken to the cleaners!

You need to be careful, people are going crazy about being in lockdown. I’ve actually
just been talking about this with the microwave and toaster while drinking coffee and
all of us agreed things are getting worse. I didn’t mention anything to the washing
machine as she puts a different spin on things and certainly not to the fridge as he is
acting cold and distant. I did discuss it with the vacuum cleaner and he said the whole
thing sucks. Meanwhile, the blender has mixed feelings and the taps kept running hot
and cold about the idea. The whisk refused to talk about it because she didn’t want to
whip things into a frenzy and the eggs kept quiet because they didn’t want to get a
beating. I didn’t check with the oven because she’s far too hot-headed. The bin just
spouted a whole lot of rubbish about the situation and the freezer just gave me a frosty
reception. In the end, the iron calmed me down. She said everything will be fine. No
situation is too pressing. The tin at the back of the cupboard with no label on thinks
it’s a total mystery. The knife made some very cutting remarks and the squash was
very cordial about it all. Unlike the lemon who was very bitter about it. Oh well..... !

Inspired by the titles of two newspapers. It was the Bicester Times and it was the Worcester Times.
