 ;D ;D ;D  I've got no excuses now have I Stuart?

I wonder if you could knit an really interesting Fair Isle sweater with a secret message in it made up of groups of different colour stitches. Not quite sure how that fell into my head - but it did  ;D

I'd be terrible on any of those systems. Especially the flashing lights. I'd be wanting them to go back over it in case I blinked and missed a flash :D  I guess I would at least be good at the following letter sequence... p l e a s e   r e p e a t   ;D

(Definition of ersatz : being a usually artificial and inferior substitute or imitation  :o :-\ )

Right - ummmm - I have to decide are the two letters 'tz' or 'on'?  OK - let's be bold.

Tzarinas

who were not in the Ersatz Division nor likely to be ersatz  ;D

'fogey by spells' - at my age I know the feeling because I feel 'fogey by spells' too. Even if you spell it correctly, I also feel foggy by spells too ;) :D :D

Nice one hanibal. Sadly if I tried that no-one would rush to paint me for posterity so I better keep my paper factory at full production  ;) ;) ;D

Burton Island, May 17th 1954

In the location at the top, "Cape Prince of Wales" has been hilariously misspelled.

I didn't know whales had royalty ;D

 ;D ;D ;D There's photographic evidence of a Prince of Whales....

At last - some hope - just wish there more of these at work - we need them so badly. Over Christmas I threw away one whole big bin liner's worth of unrecyclable plastic. I'm sick of that. This year I will reduce my plastic consumption by 75% or hang my head in shame. It won't be easy. But I have to get there. When I was a nipper all veg came in paper bags which were a lot healthier than plastic wrappers.  And I'm going to try to persuade at least three people to give up buying bottles of water because they can't be organized to fill old bottles from the tap.  That's my New Year's resolution, and that's the first I've made in some 20 years.

Here's the good news then...

Nice one Michael :D  Is that the new transcribers' uniform then? :D

It is. Very warm, too. It's amazing what you can buy with $482000!

Oh that's why we get the boots too - fab! ;D ;D ;D
