<quoted text>DO tey now have a British versoin of tHE VOICE? Who are the judges?
I don't believe it has started yet this Season Franko, last year
the judges were Tom Jones, Wil-i-am, a female singer whose name escapes me, she sang at the Royal Jubilee and was very very good, and an Irish singer and producer I believe, also whose name escapes me regrettably, as I really liked him as a personality and a judge.

Good for them. He's turned out to be a liar and a cheat and a thief. Not to mention a bully. From the link DW posted - "the interview" - sounds like he was looking for sympathy 'yeah but it wasn't as bad the Europeans in the '80s.'
He actually said that? From what I have gathered here in the
kitchen, he derseves no sympathy whatsoever. I don't say that
based on this one staement he made, obviously, but also on what
I learnt from Deer Whisperer and others, I was quick to judge,
not knowing the full story.

No, you wouldn't..lol. Then again, we would say 'my bag''where's my
bag', meaning handbag, but that also has a double meaning, if you
called a woman an old bag for instance, it roughly means the same
as a 'dog'..or a 'scrubber'

If we are annoyed with someone,
We say 'I was really p*ssed OFF with 'X'

But if someone's very drunk
You'd hear

''X' was p*ssed last night'
You mean he got wasted at the bar?

Go back a few pages to the link Deer W provided. In Armstrong's interview with Oprah (the link) he seemed to try to dismiss the sheer depth of what he did by saying "yeah but it wasn't as bad as the _____ team did in the '80s" without going back to the link I can't recall the exact country but think it was European.

Good morning Quinn. I had the best dream last night and I woke up thinking I have to remember this. Google Marjo Goitner. He was a kid evangulist and a great con man. He made a movie about tent preachers. I have always been interested in him and in my dream I met him :) Don't you love a good con man and scoundrel:) I love watching the Armstrong thing develop. What I can't believe is he beat every test. As you know I love magic so I have always been interested in fooling someone right in front of their eyes.

Depends what you're going to do with them. Fried lamb kidneys on toast or fried bread is a wonderful breakfast dish. The reason we cook 'em so long for steak and kidney pie is more the steak - we use a cheap cut of meat that has to be cooked slowly to tenderise it for a couple of hours before putting on the pastry lid. The very first time I made it, I didn't realise this - boy, was the meat tough!
We don't have meat pies other than chicken pot pies. YUM that is good

LOL ...
Isn't it interesting too ... how folks can laugh about the
word 'willy'(another name for 'the male private part)
and it is often so casually used in comedy -
and the same doesn't apply to
Fanny (another name for the female private part)
Discrimination .. Of a kind!!!
John Thomas is unknown in the states. Isn't it funny how we have all these different terms :)

We would say the same thing about bag. We would say in the bag for being drunk. We would not say passed for being drunk :)

Trying to justify his actions. I don't want to join the knockers
particularly, having said that it should now be left out of media limelight, but on the other hand, I don't want y'all to think I
consider what he has done, unworthy of mention. Know what I mean?

And incidentally...knockers also can be used two ways, as it is slang
for a ladies' bust over here...:)

Well, it's snowing again here on top of ice, not good.

Wherever you are, have a good day and keep warm.

DC, I heard the term "John Thomas", from Monty Pythons' The Meaning of Life. That was hilarious!

Probably are, but I neglected to say that apparently, he didn't
do anything outside the law. Being that it was his company.
But..leaving that aside now...good question..who is RW?!
I meant to say RM..of course, lol.
Mr. Harmon said to Captain Peacock..."I don't work in your department... Get stuffed!!" Peacock replied "I didn't hear that, Mr.Harmon" so he speaks in a louder voice "I said get stuffed!!"
