I remember you posting a graphic picture some years ago of things hanging in your cellar - I think a movie could be made of it 😁
Tales from the Crypt would be a good title. 😀
Sadly that one's already been taken... 😉
To the surprise and shock of many Norwegians, winter came this year too 😂
Give that man a mug of hot chocolate please, barman. This is not a day for Coke Zero.
Thanks. And I'd like to say that I changed to winter tyres last week, suspecting winter could come in 2023 too. I saw a repeating pattern.
First frost of the winter on the car windscreen this morning was a shock to me too! ❄️
An Irish coffee, please, while I read this old issue of Showtime with lovely Martine Beswick on the cover…
Ah, that must be part of the gentleman's interest collection which @Thunderpussy found so involving.
Ah, yes, the much missed TP.
Showtime was the J. Arthur Rank (oo-er missus) film magazine which was set up to rival the ABC Film Review magazine - they only publicised their own movies in each magazine. Showtime never really caught on and folded in 1967, 3 years after launching.
We can neither confirm nor deny that a Bond Christmas story is in the works.

A Northern Irish bar's Christmas advert on loneliness is "blowing John Lewis out of the water":
Hmm. I heard about this. Cost £700 - looks it. Very nice. When I'm in a pub on my own with a pint of Guinness no one talks to me unless I make a move, so clearly that old fella was lucky or I am frightening.
You look frightening. But I'm brave and heroic, so I'll sit with you. - Coke Zero, please!
It of course helps that it's scripted and the widowed man is played by an actor called Martin McManus. I don't frequent pubs as I don't drink alcohol but I'd imagine I'd get the same reaction. I'm told it's my rather intense eyes that scare people away:
I can't imagine why?
That stare is enough to raise the Devil himself. 👹
It most certainly is and will be heading to a thread near you very soon!
Perhaps a little too early, but I would just like to take this opportunity to wish you all, the sincerest compliments of the season, and in celebration of my 3000th post, a round of egg nog to all in this blessed house of The Silencer & Black Garter. Bottoms Up!🍻
Much appreciated, The Red Kind. Congratulations on your 3000th post, and compliments of the season to you as well. 🎅
Many thanks. I am catching you up! Cheers. 🍻
Congratulations with your 3000 posts, The Red Kind. I also wish you a a happy Christmastime.
Congratulations on having made it to 3000 posts, @The Red Kind and the compliments of the season to you also. 🎄
I'd like to invite everybody to read the story I've posted in the "Real stories from the world of espionage and special operations" thread. it involves an unconventional MI6 agent , a truly evil Gestapo commander, the battleship Tirpitz and espionage in the far north.
Thank you, All. We're heading towards "the most wonderful time of the year", and being on AJB is one of the most wonderful places to be. 🤗
Congratulations TRK, it’s always good to see you on here 🍻
