    My unusual nipples.......

    ....well, first time I've come across them anyways. I was stripping down an old rear wheel that was given me, and it has brass nipples with hexagonal heads, and I've never seen the likes before. The wheel has a tyre size of 26 x 1-3/8, which Sheldon says was used on older English bikes, but a...

Only happens on this site, none of the others I connect to. It shows a message saying 'Performing a TLS handshake to...

    Brooders and crooners........

    ....spotted this whilst out cycling this morning: These are Red Wattled Lapwing eggs, the 'nest' being a dried out old cowpat! The only other one I saw some time back was just a scrape in the ground, so maybe this one is more des-res. Can identify most birds in the area now - just adds a bit...

    'New Post' expiry

    Got my pedantic hat on - be warned. On the old forum, I mostly had a quick butchers at new posts without logging in, and I think they were set up on there to roll off the queue after maybe 2 or three days, some days showing no new posts. The new forum has new posts showing from over a week ago...
