Even Blackadder can cause a political rift


Recommended Posts

I refer everyone to Rudyard Kipling's poem " Tommy ". Everything becomes much clearer, it seems, in hindsight. Today it's not politically correct to honor those who served so gallently when their country needed them the most. These left wing academics, celebrities, and hand wringing navel-gazers are repugnent.

Hello Michael,

Welcome to the forum, good to see another Canuck on board.

I would have had to agree with your comment back in the 1970s but I do believe that today the respect and reverence for those who served and are serving today has returned somewhat.

Of course that's what makes this a great country, being able to have two points of view without throwing bricks at on another.

Regards

Brian

Yes, welcome aboard, Michael! Brian and I are fellow 'colonials' and reserve our bricks for each other - part of a long standing feud between his obscure little burg and the thriving metropolis where I live!

[That would be New Hamburg Ontario and Alliston Ontario and if you have to look them both up you're not the only one! :cheeky: ]

Peter,

How many times must we go over this? The ranking of importance is not linked to alphabetical order!

Also, on most newly printed maps at least WE don’t have to “pencil in” the name of our little town. :lol:

Grrrr. You always bring up that one paved street, :mad:

Ok, samrt guy, we are about to build an addition to the buggy works and are installing those computing machines with the latest DOS package. Top that!

Regards

Nope, can't top DOS. Although I have persuaded the town clerk to take lessons in using the abacus from the guy who runs our 'ethnic restaraunt', because Joe's arthritis gives him Hell when he pulls that long arm on the adding machine dozens of times a day.

Oh, and the buggy whip factory has put on a second shift. That's two people we won't have to send out of town for work! :cheeky:

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
