Well as per usual i missed all the drama Jean...i do like to be consistent :-)

The following quote just sums up the best of the folks on this site :-

"All that is necessary for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing." (Edmund Burke)

Jean the support you have given so many people on Gr over the years, ...not to mention the fun, has resulted in the support you are now receiving.

The wonderful response from so many who have not yet been lucky enough to meet you or talk to you on here, but who have joined this thread just goes to show that the sick opinions of one sad person will not win the day.

Well done to all the good men...and ladies ...of GR

Morning Jean

just been looking through one of my bookmarked sites and came across this.....
and i've now been singing it all

Bernard Cribbins

Right said Fred, both of us together, one each end and steady as we go
Tried to to shift it, couldn't even lift it, we was getting nowhere
And so, we, had a cup of tea

Right said Fred, give a shout to Charlie, up comes Charlie from the floor below
After straining, heaving and complaining, we was getting nowhere
And so, we, had a cup of tea

Charlie had a think and he thought we ought, to take off all the handles
And the things that hold the candles, but it did no good, well I never thought it would

Right said Fred, have to take the feet off, to get them feet off wouldn't take a mo
Took it's feet off, even with the seat off, should o' got us somewhere but no
So Fred said lets have another cup of tea and we said right-o

Right said Fred, have to take the door off, need more space to shift the so and so
Had bad twinges taking off the hinges, and it got us nowhere
And so, we, had a cup of tea

Right said Fred, have to take the wall down, that there wall is gonna have to go
Took the wall down, even with it all down, we was getting nowhere
And so, we, had a cup of tea

Charlie had a think and and he said look Fred, I've got a sort of feeling
If we remove the ceiling, with a rope or two we can drop the blighter though

Right said Fred, climbing up a ladder, with his crowbar gave a mighty blow
Was he in trouble, half a ton of rubble, landed on the top of his dome
So Charlie and me had another cup of tea and then we went home

I'm off to watch my pest's class assembly.

I'm used to sitting on little chairs, but most of the other parents aren't, so its funny to see them squirm about LOL !

Good morning Jean. :-)

Sunny thoughts to you and your close ones,

Do you know how hard it is to get hold of George Clooney these days to see if hes free for a date at the Ritz and fly round in the Eye with all of us in the pod.....

well as you say onwards and upwards and we wont give up:}}}}}}}

Morning Jean... that nice nurse has been sticking holes in me again, lol.... got my flu jab done...... *sobs* I was a very brave little soldier... poor girl was in a worse state than me... she has some bad memories of trying to get blood from this stone (a nice bright sparkly stone, maybe, but a stone none-the-less) last year, lol

All done now... just waiting for the swine flu one...........

Hope you are all bright and breezy, thermals at the ready for the cold snap... I am waiting for thermals to become sexy....... we can then say we are fashion leaders, lol!! ;¬))

Love and (((((hugs))))

MrDaff Report 22 Oct 2009 11:23

If we are all going on the eye.... shall I hold your coats at the bottom, please? Don't think there is enough blu-tack to stick me firmly to the floor with a blindfold on and a valium sandwich to chew on, lol!!

Edit.... or I could bring a note from me mam excusing me? *starts practicing me mam's siggy*

Afternoon Jean & Jane, hope your both feeling a tad brighter today. Sending you both a hug, but not through the Royal Mail mind, as there's a flamin strike on, am sending my hugs via the GR Pigeon I've just purchased.....just gotta think of a name for her now:)...

No excuses Daff, I' ll hold your hand and keep you firmly anchored , the eye is great :))

Jean and Jane, I would love to go on the eye with you
( George Clooney or no lol) such wonderful views.

I've just come back from the library clutching a book on Family trees and one on Jack the Ripper ( nice light bedtime reading lol) but it has lots of detail of the Whitechapel area in the 1880s so will be interesting as background for where some of my relatives lived.

Look after each other,
(((hugs))) Rose xxx
