Had to retire this header:
Issue is ‘overview’. Just as an animal at the waterhole keeps the eyes peeled around him, just as a motorist watches a couple of hundred yards in each direction – up, down, above, for potholes and verges too and uses the rear-vision for the rest – then focusing on something downwards plus close in is really not my thing, it agitates me. It’s not unlike sitting in a pub – unless I can get a seat with an overview of what’s happening, I’ll not sit there in the remaining place, for any reason. Maybe it was military training as well.
Health so-so, dental I’ll sort tomorrow if poss.
Take for example the Tommy Cooper joke: “I bought some pork chops and told the butcher to make them lean. He said, ‘Which way?'”
With this joke the late Mr Cooper (99 today) has managed to offend Jews and Muslims (mentioning pork), fat people (mentioning “lean”) and people with one leg shorter than the other (the other meaning of “lean”). So watch out for Mohammed Ben Fatwa, the overweight Muslim with a limp!
Thanks, Toodles, for the tip.

2. One’s home is one’s castle
He who enters someone’s home, armed, has forfeited any rights. Fundamental principle. Defensive pushback is, naturally, automatic:
1. MSM slant again
Only this time, from a youtuber:
As for some of those commenters – I commented on them.
