Christmas truce 1914Weekend social is for non political chat. What’s on for the weekend, gigs, film or book reviews, sports, or whatever.

No politics, no aggro, why can’t we all just get along?

    More bizarre weather..all week it was forecast to be wet as, now its fine, perfect trouting weather so its check the flow meters and find some clear water. Its that end of the season when the fish will have put on summer condition prior to spawning, and will be moving into place and getting very territorial. All good fun, the odds are stacked toward the fish.

    Few weeds to pull as well, might just get a bean or two from the pathetic runner bean efforts of this season. Compost time, autumn clippings stacked up for winter to rot down.

      Tempting but I already have too many games to play.

      Have enjoyed the modern Fallout iterations and much to my regret I had missed the original in my youth.

      Having gone the Vic 20, C64, C128, Amiga route I really only jumped back to some PC gaming for RPG’s with Baldurs Gate I and II and Planescape Torment.

      Since the original Xbox I pretty much keep my gaming confined to consoles now as well.

      One can only stretch your gaming hours in so many directions.

      Should hit level 100 in GOW3 this weekend and then will have to decide whether to achievement whore the 50 gamer points on offer and start from level 1 again.

    Easter eggs. Just an excuse to eat marshmallow and chocolate. Eating one is no good. Like eating pineapple lumps must eat two at a time. And Eggs are smaller than they used to be so pop it all in the mouth in one go, (saves messing up fingers with melting chocolate.) then the next. And maybe two more and then…….
    Waddya mean? There is some sort of religious background? Rubbish. Have another two and……

      Stuff the whole egg in the mouth and what happens? – the phone rings! LOL – Have you tried the marshmallow eggs with the pineapple lump flavoured marshmallow? Gave some to my Mum and it’s all “Mmmmmmmmmm! They’re all mine!”
