Went to parents evening at my son's school on Thursday. Teachers sitting in rooms by subject. In one room there were two teachers, Mr Fish and Mr Cony. It really should have been Biology (but it was Maths). (But his actual Biology teacher, who looks about 20, was wearing what appeared to be a genuine late 80s Casio digital watch in bling gold... !)
The unwilling rider and the one who leaves each control in turn without reluctance, with no desire to come back, obviously cannot be making the same journey, even though their brevets are identical.

Just received a letter from the DWP to inform me that although the UK is probably going to piss off out of the EU at Halloween, they will graciously continue to pay my meagre pension.  All very well, apart from the fact that they've got my name wrong: it's not Alcock. Summat in their system is, though.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Will it still be index-linked?

That depends. Is it Campag or Shimano?

Remind me not to joke about patients' names...

I don't think I'm breaking confidentiality though when I state I once saw a patient with purple hair named Violet.

For three years, and thereafter "the government plans to negotiate an agreement to ensure" it will be "upgraded in the longer term", and we know how sincere they are about that.

Have since phoned them up: some low-grade labourer alcocked up a spreadsheet but not the database.  Interesting factlet: UK overseas pensions are paid via a US bank.

How about some nominative antideterminism? A denier standing for the Greens (and you thought you'd escaped politics in the Pub; sorry!)
