Well, what can I say...the naughty boys always got it worse than the girls. 😁
Haha! So true, I got the strap occasionally for too much talking and then I had a kind nun before leaving primary school for two blissful years. Her punishment was to send talkative ones like me into a 'middle room' that had a high mantlepiece over a fireplace and one desk and chair, set in the middle of a sloping wooden floor. A set of encyclopedias was on top of the mantlepiece and a little kid could just reach them and [secretly] read them. Oh, the appeal of silent reading and access to books of knowledge that few parents from my school could afford to buy their children. I still feel enormous gratitude to that wise and kind woman.

Good news for the older wine buff. An Agricultural Research station near me is using genetic modification to produce a grape with high diuretic content.

The wine produced is going to be called Pino More.

I´ve got Camino plans until 2042,
- or till I fall flat on my face, whichever comes first !!
I am bored out of my skull; - our newly rearranged flight to Spain in October will be very likely be cancelled again as numbers rise, and furthermore, I have been unable to walk locally for 4 weeks now due to a twisted ankle....
This has caused my consumption of coffee to rise dramatically,
and inactivity and idleness to set in and fill my daily life and I must search new life questions,
like:
What gender is coffee in Spain, does anybody know ??

Will a Cortada be:

El Rey de Café or

La Reina de Caffeina ???

I never would have thought I would see the day when I would be able to walk into a bank and take money out....wearing a mask.
Goes along with post #186...so which masked guy were you..the good guy or the bad guy! 🤣

Here is a COVOD-19 joke which is too good not to share. A few minutes ago I received a recorded phone message from my pharmacy advising me that if I am sick I am not to pick up my prescriptions.

Edit: perhaps a denier is a measure of thickness
You are correct but other measures are available such as a Vernier.

Cut it out! You're making a mess o' these potamia.
I have no idea...shall I google to catch the pun?...
Just googled...still don't get it, but I'm stubborn and wanna understand.
To the ancient Greeks the land in Iraq between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers was known as Mesopotamia from [land] meso (between) and potamia (rivers). Now it should be hilarious. 🤣🤣🤣😂
(Where's the sarcasm emoji?)

Yes, hilarious now. You are most always full of dry humor encased in a bit of sarcasm, Rick...love it! (Still don't know how you come up with this stuff.)🙄

How do I come up with these things?
Well, Rick, I think your brain is multi functual. You have a great grasp on most things techy/computers and offer help time and again to those who need it on the forum. You also have a great sense of humor...dry as it can be, and you often make me chuckle with your wit!
