I'm trying to think of a post to make so I can use the new buzzword "lockstep". No self respecting journalist would consider a question without it and government ministers are all quite clear about it's use in their gobbledyspeak.

Just can think of a way of getting it in tongue.gif

Gobbledyspeak is a speciality of many politicians, it is characterised by the use of lots of words, phases and enormous sentences which that have hee haw meaning in reality. rolleyes.gif

Self-respecting, yeah. Respected by others, naw!

Sad news today. Gambit has died of old age. At 48 he left behind grandkids and even great grandkids.
If you think I am cracking up I am talking about the two dolphins Purdey and Gambit that came here over 40 years ago when they became to big for their Scarborough aquarium pool.

Agree with you Beth. World class as the UShaka facility probably is.
Its more or less an aquatic zoo.

Much as I pretend my mind still functions after my strokes, its when I try to read, follow and concentrate on instructions for something new I want to try that I realise I dont have it anymore.

Dave, I have never been in your position health wise but I find myself saying repeatedly that it is hard to teach an old dog new tricks

Dont see anything wrong with your avatar beth at least not on my screen.
Something on my screen that drives me dilly is the first post on any page I open is the original post that started the topic.
