And it was, My mum who is 90 said the lamp she used in the kitchen diner for emergency’s was dim.

I said wind it up then, or pass it here and I will do it for you.

90 or not she has her wits about her and just looked at me and said want a cup of tea.

Two weeks passed and she said I wasn’t going to fall for that winding the lamp up to charge the battery. What batteries do I need.

You may have realized by now it was a wind up lamp, just like torches, and radios.

Amused us both.

What are we going to call the club? How about "The Thick In'ted Club"? Hope Macscouse doesn't set the annual subs too high. I will be one of the members who never wants to be a committee member. Always have loads of them of course.

Club is a good idea but I think we need a few more members before we can make this global and become super rich.

Aitchbee, I am sure Bing.alau would enjoy a Martini but he has just found out that his money is superglued to the floor.
