bohemian's Achievements

  1. Robert Wyatt : The End Of An Ear. avant-garde jazz from 1970.
  2. George goes to the monumental mason's to order a headstone for his recently deceased wife. The mason asks him if he would like an inscription on the stone. "She was Thine" he says. A couple of weeks later he goes back to look at the finished headstone, and the inscription reads "She was Thin". "It' no good - you've missed out the 'E'" he says. The mason is most apologetic and promises to have the inscription corrected later that day. George goes back later to find the amended inscription now reads "Eeee, She was Thin!"
  3. Monica goes to the local newspaper office to post an ad in the "Deaths" column as her hubby has died. The receptionist gives her the form to fill in. She writes "Fred's dead" and hands the form back. "The first 5 words are free, so do you want to add anything?" says the receptionist. Monica scribbles three extra words and hands it back. It now reads "Fred's dead, whippets for sale"
  4. A local church needed to repainted on the outside and so it call for tenders. 2 guys from the congregation put in a low bid and won the tender. They started painting from the ground up to the spire. As they went up they realized they didn’t have enough paint and so they started to water it down. By the time they got to the spire the paint was so thin it did nothing. Just then a sudden thunder storm came with fierce rain and washed all the paint off the church. Suddenly a voice came from the cloud, “ Repaint and thin no more!”
  5. My wife said I could go to the World Cup next year if I could name three Qatar players. So I said: Eric Clapton, George Harrison and Jimi Hendrix
  6. The BBC news website recently posted an article regarding a fossil discovery in the Sahara desert of a four-legged whale! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-58340807 Illustrated as this: This story was covered on Evolution News website. https://evolutionnews.org/2021/09/evolutionary-imagination-and-belief-drive-false-claims-of-a-four-legged-whale/ In the published paper a figure was given showing the fossil bones which were discovered. The image in the centre of the figure shows the actual fossil in red. No leg bones, pelvic bones just a partial skull and two ribs and vertebrae. What do you think? Imagination run riot?
  7. The article above is actually a spoof. 🤣 Nigella is noted in the UK for her cooking shows which are often suggestive or subtly sexy. Her recipes are good, though.
  8. Nigella Lawson's guide to making a glass of water 6th September 2021 AS WE move into the autumn months, I’m turning away from summery Pimms and Aperol Spritzes to year-round favourites – and what’s more classic than a glass of water? A versatile drink that works as an aperitif or an accompaniment to just about any meal, this deceptively simple recipe can be served with ice or at room temperature. You can buy it bottled, of course, but where’s the fun in that? Step 1: Prepare Begin by prepping a nice glass or cup, to be found in kitchen cupboards, to be used for serving. Heston Blumenthal has experimented with other vessels like watering cans and pipettes, but I prefer a classic transparent glass. I’m a bit of a voyeur, really. Step 2: Run the tap The wonderful thing about this recipe is that it can be prepared in any kitchen or even bathrooms, if you’re naughty. Gently tilt your glass – this is not my secret, but one pilfered from a roguish barman I met in Siena. Grazie, Luigi – then allow the water to gush into the cup, turning it off once you’ve reached your preferred level. Let it overflow if you like. I won’t tell anyone. Step 3: Season I like to enjoy my water with a squeeze of lemon, so flick ahead to my recipe for Sliced Lemon if you’re feeling advanced, but many prefer it plain. For a little extra kick, sprinkle a few grains of salt into it. It always reminds me of September sunsets swimming in the still-warm Mediterranean. Step 4: Drink It’s time to enjoy your glass of water, whether you sip, gulp or savour. Best enjoyed fresh, but also works as a mischevious midnight treat if left on your bedside table for easy access. Mmm. So moreish. I literally couldn’t live without it.
  9. Only if you are prepared to ignore the “terms of use” of jw.org and be disobedient to the slave. It is not on jw.org in the UK at least. Also, information is being shared regarding the content although there is no “Spoiler” heading!
  10. I just purchased Richard Wagner’s opera Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg on cd. (only £6.99). Actually on 4 cds! I got quite a good historical performance by the Beyreuth Orchestra and Chorus conducted by Herbert von Karajan and recorded in 1951. I am unfamiliar with most of the singers other than the great soprano Elisabeth Schwarzkopf. I took some time ripping the discs to my computer and then editing the files into three acts from the four discs. Now we are looking forward to this “comic” opera, but need to set aside enough time to enjoy it in one go!
