'He's well fed on Mackeson' (His welfare is my concern)

Hollies - He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother'

For younger readers Mackeson is a milk stout - a sweet dark beer once thought to be very nutritious and given to nursing mothers.

I knew she had a canasta session last night.


Are there really still people who play canasta!? Even my mom considered canasta as a game of the generation before hers. (Dad was a decade older than Mom and might have considered it as of his generation, but the only card games he played were ones that you could bet money on.)

In the pub where we go there is a group who occasionally play bezique, a game that was really quite trendy in the 70s. One of the group who play it is a woman of around 60 who wears leather trousers, so I suspect that she was too ...

Hey, I play canasta, used to hammer anyone that dared to challenge me on pogo. I was a member of one of the most cutthroat canasta schools ever formed. Games were every lunch time for an hour over a period of 10 years, players came and went but we had a hard core of 3. My mate used to get so wound up during a grab the pack hand that his hands would literally shake with the tension. More sledging went on than in any Test match.

Being a noob here, would i be correct in thinking that while Mr Stephen Fry has the ability to orate in an exceptionally comedic and entertaining manner, a cursory search of the internet would reveal his ability to eloquently rebut the assertions of a converse thus revealing him to be both a master linguist and cunning debater?

Resurrection time.

Listening to MNSBC, I am regularly thrown by the mention of "Hi-de-Hi Camp", and then realising they're talking about Sen. Heidi Heitcamp (D-ND).

And this, from Wednesday's Late Show with Stephen Colbert, is what an American subtitle-writer hears when a woman from Yorkshire says "Huddersfield".

We watch Acorn, which is a very cheap streaming service that streams rather ancient British TV programmes. Currently we are watching our way through a 90s show called Goodnight Sweetheart, which has a lot of heavy London accents in it, and the (apparently American) subtitles are absolutely unable to cope with it - we've left them on because they get quite funny sometimes.

Goodnight Sweetheart was actually fairly entertaining, the copper was probably the best part in the piece.

I actually thought the first barmaid was the best part, but for different reasons.....
