    Funny breaking you're own rules on this thread!
    You are not supposed to use the reply button.

    It's actually sunny here.
    And I'm ok, New grandson coming around soon.
    And Rovers won away!

    I'll give myself a telling off for that!
    The test was completed as soon as I got the first reaction, wanted to test some settings to see if I would get an alert :D.
    I'll shortly remove this thread, as it serves no purpose anymore despite the nice talking with you.
    Good to hear you're well, grandson sounds fab, not sure who the Rovers are but glad it makes you happy!

    P.s. Just a bit bored, so trawling through forums, to distract from noise of fireworks.

    No idea really.
    But if I delete it now you won't see my reply, which doesn't seem fair!
    Are you bored enough to report this nonsense thread (with lies too!) to give my colleagues something to do?
    Why are there fireworks where you live?

    They are celebrating a anarchist domestic terrorist treason and plot plan to blow up the British Government's Houses of Parliament a couple of hundred years ago. Who were all hung drawn and quartered for their trouble when they were caught there leader was Guido (Guy) Fawkes so the proper name is Guy Fawkes night.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guy_Fawkes

    The other fireworks are for the dwali is some Indian festival of something or other which I have not heard of before.

    Fireworks are banned in Australia except for licenced firework displays.

    Most of the forums I belong to have a testing page stickied, to try out what ever you are going to post to see if it looks all right.

    I rather like bothering all our members with nonsense threads like this one. :D
    Yes I know, not mod-like behaviour and all that...

    Just did a google to see if there was some good nonsense I didn’t know. A blob of toothpaste is called a nurdle, I like that, put a nurdle on your toothbrush. A catfish is thought to have more than 27,000 taste receptors. I thought they were bottom feeders, not going to think about that one. Moving swiftly on, apparently a housefly hums in in the key of F, middle octave.
