    Charles Kennedy

    Boris Johnson who presides over an administration of sleaze, chumocracy and graft faces questions about exactly who paid for the refurbishment of the 11 Downing St flat and his 2019 New Year Caribbean holiday. He also poured a lot of public money into his four year affair with Jennifer Arcuri. He missed five consecutive emergency COBRA meetings in the build up to the coronavirus crisis, and has proven himself to be an amoral dissembling chancer. What kind of leadership is that?

    Ebay - new registration requirement issues

    As far as Etsy goes, I've been on there for about 9 years and made 382 sales. It's not really set up for our market and the fees generally work out to be the same as Ebay/Paypal. There is one thing though to be considered if you wish to sell to the USA, unless you offer free shipping above a certain price ($45?) your goods won't be seen in America. Good point, you can make full use of SEO by using the many descriptive tag fields you're given.

    Ebay - new registration requirement issues

    We all are being forcibly changed to the new ebay payment system May 31st, although they are trying hard to lure people to change before that date. Usually on a Bank Holiday weekend there is the offer of £1 maximum commission to tempt us into selling. And the offers are still there IF you agree to change over to ebay payments now. I really need to learn how to build a website, fast.
  5. A Lexus mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a LS460 when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop. The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come and take a look at his car when the mechanic shouted across the garage "Hey Doc, want to take a look at this?" The cardiologist, a bit surprised, walked over to where the mechanic was working. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked "So Doc, look at this engine. I opened its heart, took the valves out, repaired or replaced anything damaged, and then put everything back in, and when I finished, it worked just like new. So how is it that I make £48,000 a year and you make £1.7M, when you and I are doing basically the same work?" The cardiologist paused, leaned over, and then whispered to the mechanic "Try doing it with the engine running"
  6. When One Door Closes, Another Door Opens. These IKEA wardrobes really are shite.
  7. He shoots, he scores! Brilliantly spotted. It is indeed the Newton evasion. I'd considered unofficial farthings but could find none that matched.
  8. Ging by Britannia, I would have expected this to be George II, but he seems to have no neck.

    Old Coin Monthly's still outstanding

    In the cupboard under the stairs that I've been avoiding, I found July 68, January 69 & June 70 should any one want them.
  10. Q. What did Edith Piaf say to the waiter, when he asked what salad dressing she wanted? A. Je Vinaigrette Rien. (I'll get my coat)
  11. This appeared on ebay under tokens: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fichte-Bauchi-Louis-xv65-designer-safe/254934993430?hash=item3b5b4f4a16:g:gJwAAOSwORpgYyHC
  12. Any publican will tell you that people who prefer a dimple pint or "jug" never pick it up by the handle. It's always used, handle opposite mouth and with the first three fingers poking through. So why not use a straight glass, is it the weight? Also that which is described as a shaker, a term I have never encountered, is more commonly known as a sleever. More specifically, a cider sleever.

    Alternative coin storage

    Back in the day when I handled more coins than medals I put everything into 2 x 2s. Storage was easy. Even today most charity shops will have slide boxes for 35 mm slides, or even better the cartridges used in 35 mm slide projectors. They fit beautifully.
