With the silly season bearing down on us, and the spiked egg-nog soon to flow, and keyboards/keypads always within reach, today's editorial comment is brought to you by Rule 6 Very Happy (see below).

I appreciate our forum members reflecting upon the issue of name-calling. When we avoid it on the forum, we're staying out of the muck just a bit better than if we give in to that. And, no small consideration to those of us in the cross-hairs, it's one more thing to minimise risk of legal action for what's said here.

Many thanks,
Lise

insults/name-calling, racism, swearing, gratuitously offensive material,
personal attacks, and trolling (making controversial posts purely to
stir up an adverse reaction).

Yes I completely agree with you Lise,

However I must also confess recently to
trying to poison Mater Ko Zan in the 12th century
Putting Master Ko Zan in a hundred year long samadhi
Kicking someone in the****** for feeling the ladies breasts
and Personally attacking Anne and her organic pies on many occasions

You will be pleased to know, I will be booking my annual Christmas therapy courses early this year

:-) Despite never having made an organic pie, to the best of my recollection (except possibly during my time as a postulant at THP in 1974-5), I have been inundated with advertisements for Food Hygiene Certificate courses, and recently received an order for 5000 curried beetroot and brussel-sprout purée flans from the organisers of the local traditional Yuletide Pie-Throwing Festival...I know exactly whom I hold responsible! ;-)

Everytime I go to Morrisons I see in the breakfast cereal aisle a section of Dorset granary cereal,it is not in boxes it is in a sealed plastic bowl for instant consumption..just add milk . It is a little like Jordan granola there is about 2 spoonfuls in the bowl,everytime I see it and see the price of £1.50 I always laugh and think of you!!!

:-) Here people save the bowls for the local traditional monthly New Moon Bowl-Smashing Festival, but having found that they (the bowls, not the people) tend to bounce, even when hurled off the Portland Bill lighthouses, steam-rollers festooned in bunting have become a regular part of colourful local culture.

(Perhaps I had better add that the above is a complete myth. :-)
