      Yes, a small pile, enough for this batch.  I can tell where the box is by space warping around the field.  I must remember to take off my stainless wedding ring before reaching for the box or I get in a sticky situation.

      No, jd. I don't have any. You've still got stock, right ?

      @Pneumo  I didn't know there was another guy from the forum living down there, I thought you were the only one.   While not much to look at @Pneumo has a magnetic personality.   Hey Mr P, did you need me to supply magnets or do you have some?

      Welcome Stephen,   This group is a real mix of many people with many different opinions. We don't agree on many issues, but the discussion always gets me thinking.   Watch out for the South African guy. His sense of humor might cause you to spray your keyboard with your tea, coffee or tequila on occasions.

      Hello Stephen   To echo jd, welcome.   Hope you'll stick around and get involved with the discussion on the private side.    Nice bunch of folk here....except for the Californians, of course. And the Illinoisians, the Texans, Michigonians, Carolians (North and South), Mississippianos, etc, etc, In fact, there's too many bloody Yanks here. We need more poms.We are only a handful and one currently in London is definitely mad.   There's a really nice member living with the howler monkeys in central America, a philosopher in the Land of The Rising Sun, a couple of loopy Aussies and one incredibly handsome, smart bloke on the southern tip of Africa.

      Introductions: Introduce yourself here
      Hi everyone My name is Stephen Winterburn and I've just remembered how difficult it is to do these kind of things. I'm a 61 year old electrical engineer from Leeds in Yorkshire, England. I discovered Clif in 2017 and bought his web bot report to study although I must admit I found it a difficult read at the time something made me stick with it and through watching Clif's videos on YouTube I began to understand some of his work and appreciate it. Discovered this forum when looking for Clifs videos when a link wouldn't work which I think was YouTube taking down his work( cencering). Thanks to anyone who reads I'll be visiting as and when I can at the moment I have lots of time to fill.

      UBI - Universal Basic Income - pros and cons
      It appears that UBI is going to be on the agenda in a much bigger way than ever before, so perhaps a good time to start looking at all the angles.  There has been some discussion on various threads, but not a lot. This article provided by Zep is making the case for it (I didn't register to read the whole thing), but there are many other opinions out there of people with just as much conviction against it.  My personal feeling is 'no' but I'm willing to be convinced if there would be a way to fund it using the natural resources whose profits usually go to corporations. It's worth discussing. Guy Standing on how lockdowns make the case for a basic income https://www.economist.com/by-invitation/2020/05/20/guy-standing-on-how-lockdowns-make-the-case-for-a-basic-income

      Brexit
      There is a lady who I've known for 30+ years, she is a widow and lives alone so and until the lockdown I used to visit for a few hours every fortnight. She was an older teenager during the war, did not evacuate but instead worked during the day and went to evening classes to further her studies.   What really frightened her was spiders in the emergency air raid shelters! Even today she dislikes them. I am hoping to start visiting her again, later this year. She is partially deaf but we still manage to have a conversation.    My parents were evacuated, my mother was sent to boarding school which over the years was located in various large country houses near small towns away from large cities.   She still recalls having to flee burning buildings as the Germans switched from bombing London to provincial towns and cities which had important docks or were in other ways important - the aim being to try and destroy our manufacturing capability plus the morale of the British people.   What the people of that era went through.... I question if the youngsters of today are as emotionally strong as the people were back then.

      Brexit
      I just saw an interview with Mike Rowe on Dave Rubin. He was talking about London during the blitz bombing in 1939. The Germans were bombing daily. So everyone hid in bomb shelters. After a week they were all still in shelter. But after 3wks they were out doing business, shopping, the kids were in school. He said they got bored of being terrified. And that's why they went out. He said beginning to venture out on times of risk will always seem premature. But we adapt to levels of risk. We all know driving a car could result in death but we have built in the risk into our lives.   With Brexit or Covid, at some point, it cant be safety first. Rowe says if you want to really accomplish things, safety comes about 3rd.

      Brexit
      The EU wants the UK to surrender rights to its territorial waters so that even after we have completely left other EU nations can still over-fish in them The UK says no, non, nien...    So, with negations at an impasse...

      Russian Lady Eyes Blink Sideways
      It might be fun to walk the street wearing the top middle or bottom middle / right. Best done perhaps on Hallowe'en!   The other three are too tame

      Russian Lady Eyes Blink Sideways
      I just watched a video of a Russian singer and she put an outtake at the end where one of her cats eye contacts got rotated so she had to stop and use her finger to turn it the right way.  Looks creepy for someone to be rotating their iris with their finger.  "Are my eyes straight now?"
