One for you gerty  ;)

 An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen.
The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, 'Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly.'
The other man said, 'What is the name of the restaurant?'
The first man thought and thought and finally said, 'What’s the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know, the one that's red and has thorns.'
'Do you mean a rose?'
'Yes, that's the one,' replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, 'Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?'

and another one  ;)

 Couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things. During a check-up, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember ..
Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair. 'Want anything while I'm in the kitchen?' he asks.
'Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?'
'Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?' she asks.
'No, I can remember it.'
'Well, I'd like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so as not to forget it?'
He says, 'I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.'
'I'd also like whipped cream. I'm certain you'll forget that, write it down?' she asks.
Irritated, he says, 'I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for goodness sake!'
Then he toddles into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes, the old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs. She stares at the plate for a moment.
'I told you to write it down. You forgot the toast!'    Smile

If Cameron gets full power he will make striking illegal and take away workers' rights. 'Do what we say or else ' will rule the day Cameron is Thatcher's child.

yes you are right there nicheuk, Cameron has said as much - it won't do him any favours voting wise with the fire crews etc.
Taking all our workers rights from them!

If the pits had been kept open, how long would they have run for and if many were still running would that have deterred some of us from going over to gas central heating?

OK thanks Gerty, I didn't know they took bedding.
Lunch is on, so off upstairs to sort out the bedding  ;)

I'd rather not !!
Speaking on his behalf, if I may, neither would he LOL  ;D

He 'might'  ::)

Same as what has been already posted, lets face it though.
We know that whoever we vote for will not deliver all they promise!

I would hope he did get something back and that the staff were reprimanded - not good for business is it !

As for the hotel now, I suppose it's wait and see if anyone takes it on, the hotel we stayed at in York was old and needed work  ( new pipes - remember the leak in our room? )
The people who own it now are doing this work early this year and I suspect will do other work as well.
Lets hope the same happens to the Chesterfield Hotel!

Gerty, it comes to us all doesn't it.
I marvel at my aunt who is well into her 80's and seems more 'with it' than me!!

Sounds as if we are like minded in having a clear out.
My next challenge is the spare bedding I have, all in good condition, but now I've retired I don't need so much ( it was for the children )
Not sure where to take it, but it's a shame to just throw it out.

Cats - our Flash like yours loves sitting in the middle of things when I'm busy!
 Saying 'Shift Flash' - doesn't work!!

If I could remember some of the daft things I have said I would tell you - only I can't remember  ::) I know my daughter has a good laugh at me sometimes  :-[

Oooh, I know.  Living it large with the peas.

Yes, it WAS one of the old waitresses who slapped my meal down.  I forgot to mention that that when she came round with the mashed potato, she slapped that down too so it landed like a flat cake on my plate!  Well, not just mine, it was everyones.  Everyone lurched sideways and held their napkins up to their chest when it was their turn to be served.  Someone actually thanked her, but she stomped off muttering.  It would have been worth filming, but not everyone had a fancy mobile at the time.

You really couldn't have made it up!

 :)) Sounds as if you coped with it very well Gerty.
Not too sure I would have  ;)

We went out for something to eat on Friday.
As we are going to the same place for a Christening soon hubby thought he would ask about wheelchair access.
It went like this

Hubby to staff - can you tell me what your wheelchair access is like we are coming in March to a Christening

Me - It's in February

Hubby - oH! We are in February now  :-?

Me - No - it's January now  :-?

Goodness knows what the member of staff thought - and all hubby had had to drink was coffee - no idea what they had spiked it with  :))
