Congratulations Silhouette Man! 🍾🍾🍾
No, you can't have the keys; @Higgins hid them a long time ago and we still haven't found them, so it's permanently open these days.
Thank you, @Barbel!
I understand, I know it was a big ask. I thought I'd have been made a lord or something by now seeing as they seem to give anyone a peerage these days. I suppose I shouldn't Mone. 😉
😁 Yes, please don't Mone. I still have a bit of time till my own 25th anniversary, which seems hard to believe.
You'll get there. You've done great so far.
speaking of ajb007 agents who post great content.
21 more years! 21 more years!
Thank you so much, @caractacus potts. You're very kind. Great to have you here too. 🙂
Congratulations @Silhouette Man I have many more years to go before I reach 21 😂
The Beatles heard about the JFK assassination just as they were going on stage at the Globe, Stockton.
Thanks @CoolHandBond and @Number24. That's much appreciated. 🙂
Congratulations on your 21st anniversary @Silhouette Man, my how the times flies 😳🤣
Thank you, @Sir Miles. Time really does fly in when you're having fun. While I wasn't there for some of the 21 years I have been around for most of it. 🙂
Congratulations @Silhouette Man 🍸️
Thank you, @chrisno1. 🙂
A video from a nearby town showing a snow plough loosing its grip on a slippery road and almost running over a woman:
It turns out the road in the video goes past the house of my sister's in-laws.
It's always scary when vehicles slide down a road like that out of control. It reminds me of what one of my old co-workers (whose full-time job was in the council) said about gritting the roads. He said no gritter is out in front of him when he's driving the gritter and the same applies to snow ploughs!
Is there anyone here? I mean both the thread and the forum. I'm aware BB and Wilson are enjoying a long holiday, but that's no reason for us to let our guard down.
😱 How quickly I'm forgotten.
And you are ......? 😁
🙄 I am... posting frequently.
You must be imagining those conversations.
I'm still here, like a bad penny.
Glad to hear it.
I am Spartacus!
No, I'm Spartacus!
I don't want there to be a sparring match. 😉
I can't be the only one who has found this.
Sometimes you come across a word being spoken that you have previously only seen written down. You've read it, perhaps many times, and have subconsciously created your own pronunciation of it, then one day you hear it being spoken aloud and realize that for a long time your pronunciation of it was wrong.
Surely others have found this, and is there a name for it?
Yes, that has happened to me many times. It also often happens with surnames and particularly foreign names and words that have entered into the English language. It may have a name but I'd probably pronounce that wrong too! 😀
