There is a van parked near me for "Axis Signs".  Sadly, they didn"t add a swastika, the Rising Sun flag and Mussolini's fasces.  But they could probably knock a few up.
Never tell me the odds.

And the maker's name would be pronounced "crotchy".

WinterHellWonderland has returned to Hyde Park.  I spotted, over the wall, a banner which read THOR'S TIPI BAR.  I never new the Norse used wigwams.

I'm currently reading a book on the Vikings, seems they were not afraid of a bit of cultural appropriation, so why not?

If you live in the Fens it's useful to know something about the people who live next door, especially if they have red hair.....

My initial reading of POS is 'point of sale'.  I blame too many years working in retail.
