Eyup, criss! I knew what you meant, and yes, not badly, thanks. Sprog is at uni in Chichester and Mrs McL & I have a dog - can't remember whether I've mentioned him before on here.

I assume you're now living without London?

Well without in fact! Rural Wales is where you will find me (should you be searching) in a two bedroom cottage next door to a pub, and 76ft from a gunshop.

Things could be worse!

You ought to be putting your name forward to the gunshop owner as his new assistant crissdee - he'll never find anybody else as well qualified as you :-)

Sadly, the shop is so small you have to go outside to change your mind, he hardly has room, let alone trade, for an assistant, but I live in hope!

Well, that can't be right. Hope is in Derbyshire, not far from Castleton.

I thought that Feckenham was a scale used by Irish broadcasters to allow or bar certain levels of profanity at different times of the evening.
'Feck' may be used from 2000-2100 with an advisory prior to broadcast, but freely after that.
'Fock' only after 2200 with an advisory announcement.

That sort of thing.

That actually depends entirely on the celebrity level of the person using it. Bono gets to say fock (much as it should be fook) on RTÉ in the middle of the day.

And then there was the fooking GAA ledge that was Páidí Ó Sé (no that number of fadas is not parodistic) who once referred to the fans of his native Kerry as the biggest fucking animals, which they didn't take in the complimentary spirit intended and so the whole thing evolved into a miniscule scandal that made the news for several weeks, with him being quoted in full and uncensored every single time.

Mmmmm... Clonakilty... Not re cloning Scotspeople, just re enjoying a pint or 5 and some live music in De Barra's and then having a swim in the Atlantic. They'll better have enough of us vaccinated come summer to make that possible again...

We went there as a family when I was 6 or 7. I do remember it as a lovely spot. I was not really into points at that age, surprisingly.

We visited Clonakilty during the family's only holiday in Ireland in 1977. Actually stayed a little further west in Glandore. Given it was over 40 years ago, my memories of the place are a little vague.
