I've only just found LesMac's brilliant SatNav story!

I recently wrote one of my own - bear in mind that I live in Australia...... If Possible, Do a U-turn We didn’t know the way to go, so we tried our GPS. We found out how to do it, and we typed in the address. We headed off, and things went well, at least for most the way, But the lady in the GPS turned nasty, and she’d say: “If possible, do a U-turn” – she really was a pain. ‘Cause when we did a U-turn, she would say it all again! Deciding to ignore her, we proceeded on our own, But just five K along the road we heard her dulcet tone. “If possible, do a U-turn”. You’re JOKING, we all cried! We’d have to cross six crowded lanes to reach the other side! We ignored her and we carried on – she sulked and wouldn’t speak. For twenty Ks we travelled on and didn’t hear a squeak. But then she came to life again, and told us to bear right, We did just so, and took a right, not wanting to seem impolite. But then she said – well, you can guess – we’d heard it all before! “If possible, do a U-turn”! As if declaring war! Well, that was that – we’d had enough – we’d ditch our GPS! I wrenched the CD from its pack and then, I must confess, I read the label on the front – which listed all the files. “The maps contained in this CD are for the British Isles”.

The satnav in our car happens to be me My wife does the driving without my advice you see On holiday in Cannes, we heard of the race track With its twists and dangerous bends so My wife's eyes lit up, let's hire a car, give it a go. Too dangerous, it's for the pro's, not for the likes of us My wife glared at me, God, you do make a fuss. But I held firm, gave her no slack We ended up walking every inch of the track Except for the last two hundred yards or so Where pedestrians were not allowed to go. One year on, in Majorca for awhile We have to hire a car if you want to see the isle And so she drove me to the other side We spotted a sign, 'Snakes Pass' it said She stopped the car, 'You in or out' I nodded my head. Completed safely with glee From that day on, not another 'peep' out of me.

Memo to Rob - maybe we need a "Like" button? When LesMac and Kaga send in little gems like these recent ones, I'm forced to spend lots of time thinking of a worthy response, when really a "Like" would probably be acceptable!

Oops, nearly missed this one, sorry! That could be a really good idea actually Johnnie - but if only it was as simple as just adding a "Like" button to the page! It'll take a bit of thinking about, as we'd need the button to only be available to signed in members, and also record the IP address of each member who clicks the button for each individual post, and then monitor if anyone pressing it has already done so previously for that post, to prevent one person just refreshing the page lots of times to bump up the score, and also disable the button for anyone's own post.... etc. But apart from that, plus any other things I haven't yet thought about.... it should be quite simple, so I'll give it a go some time! Lol Thumbs up

Well, I've given it a go... let's see if it works! Wink Currently, it's a "one way" thing though - one click of the thumbs-up symbol adds a "like" - but it cannot be undone.

There was a camping shop behind the gas showrooms. A girl asked the salesman if they sold 'hammocks'. "Yes what exactly are you looking for?" "Well something big enough for me, but strong enough for two." Two mates unwrapped a bacon butty in the pub. "Do you like the end bits?" "Not particu'ly". So he cut it in half, and gave himself and his mate half each.

When I was a kid we had an allotment and I once asked the old man who had the next plot what the difference was between a weed and a flower. He said, if you pull a plant up and it grows back again then it's a weed, if it doesn't grow back it was a flower.

Evidence has been found that William Tell and his family were avid bowlers. Unfortunately, all the Swiss League records were destroyed in a fire, and so we'll never know for whom the Tells bowled.
