Haven't had one of these in a while. Always good to see what people are reading and get some recommendations.
My latest two were actually suggestions from here: Every Country We've Ever Invaded (And The Few We've Never Got Round To) by Stuart Laycock and The Famine Plot by Tim Pat Coogan. Both excellent, and many thanks to those who recommended them.
Not sure what's next as I've got a habit of re-reading rather than buying new. Let's see what TWTD magic can be weaved today....

I was working my way through a stack of emails from my constituents today (responding to each one individually, of course) when I came across one very strange email indeed.
Some doddery old puffin had sent me reams and reams of nonsense about his recent trip to Bury St Edmunds recycling centre, some guff about the history of policing, male incontinence pads and then some trivia about the Crimean war.
Why do people waste their time and mine filling my inbox with this tripe? Anyway, I fobbed him off with something about Dom instead. Hopefully he leaves me alone now as I'm a very busy (and important) man.

Don't know if this was covered yesterday, but all these 'Freedom Movement' events being planned around the country are being organised by none other than a friend* of Jayda Fransen. Who'd a thunk it.
Edit: Corrected. But they're still a bunch of jeb-ends.

Earlier today I received a PM from a good friend. In it they told me that they had received no fewer than five PMs telling them that I am also SpruceMoose. This is factually incorrect.
Anyone sending such misleading PMs should cease and desist immediately.
Should this behaviour continue, I shall have no choice but to escalate the matter with the relevant internet authorities.
Thanks for your time, understanding and (eventual) compliance.
Enjoy the sunshine.

... just seen a one-off lockdown special is on its way next Thursday at 11pm. Really looking forward to it.
And if you haven't heard it before, I strongly suggest you do :)
|Here's a daft question|
at 18:57 28 Apr 2020
Have you ever had a decent cup of tea from a cafe or other outlet?
What is it about our national drink that makes it so difficult to get it right? I cannot remember a single passable cup from a coffee shop, train station or wherever. They've all been terrible.
Is it a question of science, or is there something more sinister afoot? Penny for your thoughts, TWTD.

What will everyone be turning to during these straitened times?
My favourite of canned mackerel on thick-cut toast will be a go-to.
Now just working out what to do with 5kg of pasta that doesn't involve copious amounts of cheese... if that's actually possible.

... bit fractious on here this morning ain't it.
Considering the successes of the best/worst vegetable thread, how about a best dog thread to lighten the mood?
For me, it's got to be the slender, noble greyhound. Not the most in vogue doggo at the moment, but the British people will come to their senses soon enough.
What a beauty!
|Yesterday at work|
at 11:53 11 Mar 2020
I was quietly going about my duties protecting the goods and staff at my local M&S store when I was verbally abused by some shady looking chav.
I was almost in tears after this incident and went to my manager who consoled me in the back.
Do people really have to resort to abusive language when I'm just doing my job to feed my family? Seriously thinking about changing careers after all this. Maybe I'll become a train conductor.

... tomorrow on Radio Suffolk?
Is Paul Lambert Close to the Edge or is it all Talk?
Does the squad have a Fragile mentaility?
Hope Mr Murphy can reach Chris Packham levels with this tomorrow.

It's a tie between the disgusting kohlrabi and okra. Both horrendous veg.

Lots of serious discussion at the mo so how about we lighten things up :)
When you really can't be arsed to go to work, what alternative professions catch your imagination?
Always liked the look of being a postie or milkman. Don't really have to talk to anyone, nice long walk and fresh air every day, get done early afternoon time, bit of 70s 'ow's yer father with the local readers' wives...
And a train driver too. Looks like it'd be a larf but then most mornings our train drivers look miserable as sin! Maybe it's because they only pootle along at a snail's pace and aren't allowed to put their foot down :)
Obviously unrealistic jobs like being Ron Jeremy or beer taster for Adnams don't really count.
