Just had to clean the Satellite Dish of snow, it had stopped my signal coming in. I dont know how long it will last before it shuts off again as its snowing very heavily at the moment and the wind is blowing the snow into the dish.

Hi shipmates, Ref SNOW... we dont have snow in Cardiff due to the number of takeaways and curry houses and mosques, the heat from them forms a barrier, that can be seen from space, The down side is we now have monsoons/typhoons and cobras' are breeding in the sewers. but no tigers at the moment

Her Indoors: Is at home up North, weather prevented her drving back today, only news this end though it tried to snow was England are whinging about the Kiwi / now Aus ref. Nothing to do with the weather, the roof was closed ? But was near a WHITE WASH.

Most of England is closed due to snow. Things can only get better ?

Reminds me of the two married women on holiday in Jamaica met a gigolo nicknamed 'Snow' whilst discussing their exploits wondered what their husbands would think when they heard them talking about having ten inches of snow whilst on holiday in Jamaica

Saw a bit in the news today about a pub in Yorkshire. Apparently it is the highest pub in the country and is currently snowed in. There are about 7 guests in there but according to the landlady they are not big drinkers, she claims she is losing money because of this. All they do is talk and play cards.

HI , Am not suprised, if Beer was only 2 pounds a Pint thats 16 pounds a gallon, sheer lunacy, 3 pounds a Pint 24 pounds a Gallon, taxed out of all normal thinking, same as tobacco, if sex could be taxed it would be, anything the working man enjoys is penalized with huge taxation, open season on us.

It is still snowing here in Lancashire today.
It reminds me of a Poem."UPWARDS", pronounced in Lancashire as `UPERDS`.
.
.
The wind it blew an icy blast
and in a Northern Lancashire past,
a lad came marching through the snow
and he was carrying a banner
with this ere motto.
"UPERDS"
.
Now a Policeman on his lonely beat
stopped this lad at th`end of t` street.
"Now were art going with that theer"
and lad whispered softly in his ear,
"UPERDS"
.
"Now dont go down`t clough " .Policeman said,
"Its a lonely path for thee to tread
and t` canals at bottom, deep and wide"
"Ay thats not my road " Lad replied.
its , "UPERDS.
.
Now when people were sitting down to tea,
they heard as plain as plain can be,
They thought it was final football score
until they heard this voice shout out once more.
"UPERDS"
.
Then a Lass came out and said
"come in Lad and sup."
but he said "Nay, I`m having none of yon,
besides I must be getting on.
"UPERDS".
.
Now when Sunday morning had begun
and t`lads were tacking whippets for a run.
the dogs began scratching beneath the snow,
and they found a banner with this ere motto,
"UPERDS".
.
Then they found a Lad,
whos name they never learn`t
His face were pale
and his toes were turn`t`
"UPERDS"
.
Now this story just goes to show
that if the fields are white with snow.
it isnt very safe to go.
"UPERDS."
,
,
Did you like that?
Brian.

Must be up North. seen nothing much at all this way, sun is shining, nights get lighter. No worries down South.

Looks bad on the TV, but that is what tellie news does,

Guess in a few weeks time it will be all heatwaves and drought?

If the North Koreans do not spoil all, could be a pleasent summer.
