Just been planning the next Operation:

Operation Kharzi

It does have a shower and basin too though.

Anyway enough small talk.

The point is that the half hour researching shower pumps today has resulted in every PH ad being for Stuart Turner Pumps erstwhile of Henley on Thames. So much so that every PH page is littered with pumps for sale, hundreds of the damn things.

Do any other of our readers also have ads pop up related to ‘material’ they have been ‘researching’?

I get quite a few ads relating to military surplus weaponry, Absinthe spoons and obscure medical supplies.

Not that I 'research' any of it, you understand. I just thought it was a coincidence.

Personally I’m just relieved the pump research cleared the previous ads for inflatable Thai brides.

You've made my pop-ups encouraging me to become a Latin teacher or an Avon Lady seem a bit tame.

It'll be surprising how many variations on the subject you'll get.

You'll soon be bombarded with stuff like Thai Bride Pump, Pumping Thai Brides and Claim Compensation NOW If a Pumped Up Thai Bride Has Ever Gone Down On You.

My pop-ups are mostly sheep-related, interspersed with ads for ceremonial sink plungers, balaclavas and rubberwear.

Oh, and homeopathic car servicing supplies.

That is all.

Move along now... nothing to see here.... whistle

Mine used to be a broad range of stuff between crap I'd looked at on eBay to shiny slashy stabby things and through to car parts!!!!

Morning all, yet another day wishing I was back in Niederau weeping. Still, this time in 4 weeks I will probably be nursing a hangover, looking at the mountains, and wishing I had not had that last round of shots hehe
I appear to have spent more money on ski gear this time than the bloody holiday cost!!

That's nothing new, coop. I spent more on my flat hat, stringback gloves and cravat than I did on the car.

The reason I wanted a few on parade this morning is I've been thinking of helping Bomma. We read yesterday how he lost all his contact information in the cloud and I wondered if we could get the Auster or the Lysander airborne I could have a scout round for him. Could we muster on the airfield at eleven?

You're not supposed to down the whole round of shots yourself, cooped, you're supposed to share them out with the other lunatics. rolleyes

Try to remember this in 4 weeks time and you'll be in a far better state to deal with Krista/ Ursula/Freya. wink

Did you remember to buy yourself an 'elmet?
