With out prejudice and before one of the heavy hitters log on Ron . I would delete that last pic .

Seen similar wallpaper in one of the cottages up at Beamish museum few months ago .

Save yourself some Jip Ron and delete it quick


  

Have you got a receipt to prove that though

It gets even better. :like:
Love the glitterball (ive got three in my lounge).Real nice fire place.Do you burn a real fire?

Would deffo lose the computer screen though it ruins the rooms ambience.

8 outa 10 from me


The fire in this room is gas. we do have an open fire in the living room though but felt that two open fires was just too much of a hassle with kids etc.


There was not fire surround when we moved in and there was a minging 1970s wall mounted gas fire. We bought the current surround on ebay. Collected it from this massive 8 bedroom house in ripon. The daft cunt was ripping out all the original feature. Only cost us £25 plus petrol.

I agree about the computer screen but because it is mounted on the wall I actually have some lovely screen savers that I use to almost turn it into a picture frame when friends are around for a boozy do.

I love the crackling fire screensaver when I come round Ron  :beer:

Totally MK. Next time you are around the Sloe Gin should be ready. I thought we might spend some time looking at some Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood artists books, have a few games if chess and some Tapas and rioja.

How does that sound?

We all know that is code for a gobble-sesh.

You're not fooling anyone.

Fair play ron  jc A man not frightened to be ridiculed.

Love a library. Had one built at home, solid oak. Beautiful. Bottom row is cupboard space and had a drinks cabinet and safe built into it as well.

Massive fucking thing.

By that definition you have a scatty mind. To each his own, it is good that you invest in your child's future with a library but that is a full on sensory overload for my tastes. I'd never be able to concentrate or focus. The book should be the focal point and everything else should lead you towards it.

I do have a scatty mind. I certainly like to be over stimulated but regardless of that not sure how you can have a colour coded library. Books covers are what they are.

Oh I can read anywhere. When I am in the book nothing distracts me

Got quite a few first editions. For it's relative rarity, interesting subject matter and wonderful fold out campaign maps and the fact the old man gave it to me I love Sir William Slims book 'From defeat to Victory' about the Burma campaign
Also the 1919 first and only edition of 'covenants of death'. An anti war pictorial book on WWI. Completely and utterly gruesome.


As for top 3. Really difficult to choose but I'll give it ago...

Non fiction

The Forgotten Soldier by Guy Sager. Amazing WWII autobiography. Poignant, exciting, sad and a traumatic read

In the Heart of the Sea by Nathanial Philbrick. The true Moby Dick Story

Bury my Heart at Wounded Knee. The story of Native American Indians


Fiction

1984 - Orwell
I Claudius - Robert Graves (very special to me)
The Waspfactory - Banks


That was tough

Excellent book that really gets you thinking.

If your after something that is accessible, very interesting, fact filled and funny read anything by Bill Bryson or Jon Ronson
