    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    Had this fall out of a cheap lot- it's actually got the most lustre of any half crown I've ever had! Obverse is weak, but the reverse is really pleasing.
  4. Britney Spears married Bryan Ferry.......:)
  5. Tonight I opened a Good Red, and I am currently annoying the neighbours with 'Highway Star' off 'Live in Japan'......... ( bloody loud, nice system) I keep forgetting how unbelievable a performance this is, and every now and again, I have to hammer it out to 'reset'......
  6. Why am I still laughing at this??? Some crap jokes just work and work....!!
  7. So impressed you bothered with the circumflex.....

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    Had this arrive this morning - four quid or thereabouts- high 9? Or high 90?
  11. Sorry everyone, I couldn't resist.....
  12. Paddy, you left off Erdogan, Bolsonaro, Assad, and the wonderfully named Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov.
  13. At last we have cloudy weather. This gives all my plants in the shade a chance to catch up. Last week, on a sunny morning, light level on the patio was 100,000 + lux. In the shade in the area that gets evening sun, it was 2,500. The next morning, same time, it was cloudy. Patio light level 20,000 lux. Shady spot level was 7,800......!

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    So- if someone sells a coin to himself, doesn't he pay Ebay for the privilege?
  15. That would be not much use to The Enlightened..... Did coins sell for less than expected? If so, then that's to be expected in lockdown, where you won't have a packed saleroom, so why put coins into an auction at the moment?
  16. Ah...yeah...didn't think it through.......
  17. I just wasn't thinking- I love a bargain - it was going cheep! I got mobbed by nearly twenty crows after that pun- they are a local gang called Corvid 19.... I can only apologise.
  18. There were two in the bush worth just as much...
  19. EIGHT?????!!! How the hell did two birds find enough caterpillars to raise that lot???? It must have been like Heathrow....
  20. Baby blue tits are just stupid fluffy lumps!

    Proof there is no god

    Trump isn't clever enough to realise how stupid he is.
  22. Bloody spellcheck changing 'beer' into 'breeze'...drives you mad.....
