I'm not happy - mike, Mon Aug 21 12:40
Our AC went belly up last Wednesday, well it hasn't been working very well for longer than that but the heatwave made it useless it couldn't give cool air for tn minutes. So luckily for her Tammy went to NY leaving dog and I to suffer and I've never suffered from heat like this before. I thought I was immune and that... more
  • More on music forms - Sarge, Thu Aug 17 16:01
    Since we're over our ten on the 4a thread, we continue here. Roger, I didn't include polka bands because, in all that time, I never played in a polka band. One thing I did play that you probably didn't have the chance to experience was prog rock in the mid 70s, just before I went in the Army. That really was a form... more
  • New Toad 4A - mike, Tue Aug 15 07:29
    EDITORIAL Better late than never! I'm aware that these new parts are much shorter than before for which I apologize but at the moment writing this is a bit like the task of Sysyphus! Lately I've been waking up at around 4:30am because my mind won't let me go back to sleep and if I try anyway it continually presents me ... more
  • WHERE IS ROGER? - mike, Tue Aug 15 05:34
    First Goose disappears and thats been worrying me, I'm afraid he may have died or else something bad has occurred its not like him to go AWOL without saying anything, we've been friends for years. Now Roger has disappeared off the map! Bloody hell I'm getting paranoid now.

  • Don't exceed 10 messages per topic - mike, Tue Aug 8 16:46
    Once it gets past the limit of ten messages per thread you start seeing messages like - 3 more comments - and its too easy to overlook them. I'm adding to your last response about the way the pros and cons will aid in character development and if you hadn't guessed I've decided that you are Wilkins (aka the Flight).... more
  • Introduction/explanation - Mike, Sun Aug 6 14:06
    Okay I eventually just had to bite the bullet and make a start. The first installment of the new bit to go between school and the Western Front is titled NewToad 1A the next will be 2A and so on. I wasn't ever going to break the log jam if I didn't write something - anything despite numerous misgivings about the... more
  • For a smile... - Sarge, Thu Aug 3 09:37
    For those who do not or cannot comprehend the function of social media, I conducted this experiment to see if I couldn't make friends outside Facebook by applying those same principles. To that end, I have been telling anyone I meet on the street what my personal history is, my place of employ, giving them photographs ... more
  • Todays grump! Technical documentaries - mike, Mon Jul 31 10:34
    I watch a lot of these always hoping to learn a bit about how things work even when I'm already fairly up on the topic. What gets me is how anyone can make a so called documentary about - for example - the de Havilland Mosquito the most important aspect of which was its all wood construction and nowhere in the many... more

    Tammys been away for ten days and I ran out of my meds so I've been in a sort of zombie state not posting not really doing anything except talking to and walking the dog.

  • Aint life grand? - mike, Sun Jul 23 08:30
    Over at WoS a chap has undertaken to help me turn my story into a sort of game, well a choose your own ending story except it really isn't but it does allow people to try a couple of alternatives. What I found fascinating is how other folk offer help off their own bat, its almost like a snowball effect. However this... more
  • I love my dog - mike, Fri Jul 21 06:57
    When Tammy's away Herbert is like a shadow of me. She hides her light under a bushel though often behaving as if she was a dummy only to surprise me. I knew her senses were excellent but she knew something was nearby hidden in the 'jungle' and I'd already checked it out myself since I'm rather proud of my woodcraft... more
  • Windows 10 isnt what I want - mike, Wed Jul 19 08:53
    My darling daughter bought me a brand new computer. I asked her NOT to buy a Chrome machine nor touchscreen (hate them) and get one with a large hard drive and a DVD RW. She bought me a Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series. Its a nice slim laptop with a large 15" display. I quickly discovered that I didnt like the touchpad or ... more

Here's a sample of the first episode reworked to give a reader the option of making decisions on Toads behalf....
