    I've seriously taken up boxing competition as part of my fitness regime. I had to go for a Medical as part of the insurance, and the doctor told me I'd got Sugar Diabetes, and I told him that in the form I was in, I'd win by a knock out.......

    Not the greatest coin in the world but I was pleased to pick up this 1904 Sixpence in an album full of otherwise scrap coins last week. Seems to be a scarcer date too. A slight upgrade for me:

    Rather pleased to have obtained a 1918H penny with a fully struck up breastplate and reasonable hair detail. It's very difficult to find specimens with a good strike to both obverse and reverse. This one is otherwise only about EF, with a tiny trace of lustre in the legend, but it's the rest of it which appealed to me. My previous one was not as good, and has been consigned to the oddments drawer.

    Sorry to hear of your experience Mike. If you are looking for an F114 upgrade then may be worth trying to find one with the added feature of the protrusion from the H as per below.

    That reminds me Years ago a lady friend was looking for an old Cliff Richard tune, “Two lips and seven kisses”. I remember her ringing around several local record shops to no avail. Then she rang a shop in the next village, “Do you have Two lips and seven kisses?” she asked. It all went rather quiet the other end for several seconds, then all of a sudden a male voice came back, “No love but i’ve got two balls and seven inches” Rather surprised, she asked “ is that a record?” to which he replied “ no love, it’s just above average” and hung up.

    I was in a cafe and asked "Can I get a ham sandwich?" There was quite a negative reaction to this, so i said " May I have a ham sandwich?". Still uproar. I can't believe that the people in that cafe were so incensed about what I said. It doesn't matter- I'm not planning to go back to Karachi anyway....
