smint100: Good Lord, why did no one tell me about the radio.net! I've spent a joyful afternoon in the garden watching the strawberries ripen - I mean, editing a book - and listening to unadulterated Tull. Heaven!

Jun 1, 2022 9:21:29 GMT
rredmond: I thought it was both?
Jun 4, 2022 19:34:53 GMT
ash: One can be mistaken for the other because of similar symptoms but COPD is the nasty one! I'm talking an updated statement from Ian early this year.

steelmonkey: My new. secret, self identity: Full Can. California Cockney rhyming slang? Why not?

ash: "California Cockney rhyming slang? Why not?" Many reasons if your family has Cockney routes

steelmonkey: People my age learned of it and some of it from 'A Clockwork Orange', way back when.
Jul 4, 2022 2:05:35 GMT
steelmonkey: And I was taught that Tull members and crew called us civilian fans 'Billies' for Billy Bunter = Punter.

ash: My granddad would use Cockney rhyming slang now and then, more so if he was having a Darby. I will let him off seeing as he was born about half a mile from St Mary-le-Bow church.
