    Cancer Now Curable. Smoke Away Mateys!

    "That said, smoking doesn't make me feel more prone to cancer as much as COPD or heart disease in general. YMMV." Michael, sadly I had to hang up my pipe last year due to COPD. Not wanting to put a spike in the cogs, we are all adult and make choices that suit us. I think of a well known and...

    RIP Larry Tesler.

    You may not have heard of him, I certainly hadn't but I'm sure you all use his 'invention'. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-51567695 I remember in my early days of computing, circa 2000 having someone trying to explain it to me via instant message. Took me an age to figure it out...

    What are You Watching?

    I'm right now watching I think disc 5 of Breaking Bad and find it hilarious that an American family can have an entire conversation with everyone saying nothing buy "hey". Quite extraordinary! Regards, Jay.

    What are You Watching?

    "That's an awesome series that I to recently re-watched. It's a shame you've already bought the dvds Jay as it's on UK Netflix which as well as having the follow up movie El Camino & the spin off series Better Call Saul also has a lot of other great tv shows and documentaries." Cheers Smudger...

    What are You Watching?

    Just started my second binge viewing of 'Breaking Bad'. I'd forgotten how much humour there was in it. I couldn't find the disc set I bought in 2018 so had to buy another set last week :oops: Regards, Jay.

    Happy 80th Birthday To Tom & Jerry.

    "Moreover, it's a shame that some of the shorts are now found "inappropriate for the intended audiences" and are censored from the public broadcast and even DVD-collections." How very true Vates, 'Mama Sandal' is sadly regarded negatively from a racial perspective. I would wager folks of all...

    Happy 80th Birthday To Tom & Jerry.

    Sadly these modern CGI cartoons are nowhere near as good as the old classics, made the 'proper' way. All the characters, no matter what cartoon tend to look the same what with their huge oversized eyes and what have you. Regards, Jay.

    Happy 80th Birthday To Tom & Jerry.

    These original cartoons still have me in stitches just as much now as they did when I was a youngster. I never realised they took so long to make and were so costly. Another thing, I never knew was they were originally called Jasper & Jinx! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-51357832...

    Thanks Kevin for Choosing this Forum Format

    "I can browse multiple sites and forums while waiting for this one to load." This speaks volumes for those who are unable to make sense of the new format Granted, on the whole it's a massive improvement but otherwise needs to be looked into by those that have the capability to so do...

    4 Versions Of Jack Daniels And One Set Of Brit Tastebuds.

    "After they remove the shortly aged whiskey from the barrel, they break then the barrel apart and extract all of the moisture from the wood in the barrel." Cheers Python for that but with all due respect that is what i knew already. It's the "they break then the barrel apart and extract all...

    4 Versions Of Jack Daniels And One Set Of Brit Tastebuds.

    "I like Devil's Cut. It's a pretty good whisky IMO." Python, I still can't get my head around how its produced as per the quote on my last post. I'm sure I'll enjoy it however it's made. Regards, Jay.

    Kirk Douglas...RIP At 103

    As you all may already know, Kirk Douglas was actually named Issur Danielovich Demsky. This snippet spurred me into taking a break from my own family tree looking into his family using the US Federal census info which sadly only runs to the 1940 census. Here is what I found... 1920 Federal...

    4 Versions Of Jack Daniels And One Set Of Brit Tastebuds.

    Just now ordered a bottle of JD Tennessee Straight Rye and my first ever Jim Beam effort, something called 'Devil's Cut' which has its own curious method of production.... "It may be young but it's matured in old barrels that are at the end of their life, these barrels full of flavour then get...

    4 Versions Of Jack Daniels And One Set Of Brit Tastebuds.

    I just looked at what is available from Asda and I see they have JD Tennessee Straight Rye 70cl 45% ABV for £28 and Single Barrel Rye Tennessee 70cl 45% ABV for £50!!! I think I'll plump for the former as this is for tasting purposes. I do wish JD would quote an age on their products rather...
