  1. Been working with a former prison officer recently, been hearing some stories and the lingo is in my head.
  2. Keep telling you the bagpipes don't need fixed Les, they're meant to sound like that!
  3. Me too. Wordle 1,093 3/6 ⬜⬜🟩⬜⬜ ⬜⬜🟩🟩🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩
  4. Morning all. Been another wet night, be wet again today. It's getting to be boring now. Only plan is breakfast with friends later, then it'll be avoid the rain! Have a good one folks.
  5. Think Will's idea sounds a bit less invasive, keep the wax strips on the subs bench for now. The method Les suggested would be preferable for obvious reasons but I've more chance of training a colony of ants to dig it out for me!
  6. Wonder if they'd get right into the little holes? A younger me, keen to impress a new love, offered to help her with the wax strips, thought it'd be all romantic and bonding. It was more difficult than I anticipated and I made a right arse of it. At the point I had strips stuck to me, the floor and her mother's dog, she declared these things aren't cheap and it was decided she'd do it herself in future.
  7. Good idea Will, that could be a winner.
  8. This week's good run has ended. Wordle 1,092 6/6 ⬜🟨⬜⬜⬜ 🟨⬜⬜🟨⬜ ⬜🟩🟩⬜⬜ ⬜🟩🟩⬜⬜ ⬜🟩🟩⬜🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 There's something about a working day where I'm up early and have to get on with stuff that seems to suit me, the speed wordler approach. Being relaxed and having more time in hand just doesn't do me any good.
  9. Chance would be a fine thing! It'll help if any suggestions were available from a shop.
  10. I've got Bluetooth earbuds that are great, or were great, until the gunk built up in them. Now I barely get volume in the left which is apparently due to the common issue of ear gunk filling the speaker holes. They recommend brushing with a soft brush which I tried and very slight improvement. Someone suggested hot glue, let it set and peel off but not sure if it might risk damage. Can anyone suggest a way to clean them?
  11. Wordle 1,091 3/6 ⬜⬜⬜⬜🟩 🟨🟨⬜⬜🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩
  12. On that day everyone will get it in one attempt then we start on 6 letter words?
  13. He's just less constipated than you Mark, hasn't got hours on the bog every morning to dwell on it! Agree with the sentiment though, I'd rather fail on my own merit than have a hollow triumph every day. Found it really hard to begin with but persevere, the brain learns and you get to enjoy it.
