So am I to understand that whenever you write something by hand, as opposed to typing, it is literate, articulate and correctly punctuated?

I'm afraid everything I write whether by hand or at the keyboard is the same incomprehensible ill-informed drivel.

I mean well though.

The Duke of  Wellington was born in 1769 in the Kingdom of Ireland

Before 1801 Ireland was a separate state, ruled by England and latterly Great Britain. 

So the Duke of Wellington was more Irish than Oscar Wilde. 

(But less popular with some French, probably.)
When asked about his being born in Ireland, the Duke was said to have retorted: "Just because you were born in a stable doesn't make you a horse"

It's all yours Josco my friend. :o

Because this is one of my favorite posts ever made ~

Could that be because you are NOTapotato? A nobody in the potato world? If your name was potato, or notNOTapotato then you might not not be a nobody (in the potato world).

:lol: - I love it. #1

This seems as good as place as any to say that one horse, TyneandThyneAgain died in the Grand National today. There's usually a fatality every year and this was this year's one.

Usually it's the one I've just put a cheeky each-way on. Four years in a row my 4 shillings left Aintree on the catmeat truck, I was almost tempted to ask my turf accountant for a side bet on whether my nag would get the special treatment from the man with the bolt-gun.

Pardon me but I got to run
The fact's uncommonly clear
I got to find who's now the number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here

Excuse me while I disappear

I dont really think O'Sullevan scores enough on the famous test for
the dl. Even though he may be known in the UK somewhat he isent that famous
in America. :D
Something tells me that few if any particularly care what you think about this matter.

Having taken my ease reading the obits in the Telegraph, I turned the page to come across this article. Seems Sir Peter is still going strong and is about to be ninety. Mind you the article is by Sue Mott, who I understand is the inspiration for Private Eye's Sally Jockstrap, so he could keel over tomorrow.

from memory there was a chunk about Sir Peter in LAST weeks Times .....he was a little bit " if my time is up....I've lived a good life....etc..." . Could be a one to watch in my opinion. When a celeb goes down the route of "I haven't got long" , it may be true...

His wife of 58 years has died & he's been in hospital over the Christmas period with pneumonia - one to watch perhaps. However, he was still well enough to issue a long statement at her death, so who knows?

Yes he did rabbit on a bit but that was the job. And to identify all the runners and riders from a commentary position high up above the stands, albeit aided by a TV monitor is some mean achievement. Whata legend. :rolleyes:

Oscar Wilde was a British as the Duke of Wellington (he he)
Or maybe the Duke of York. Like Oscar Wilde, he too had 10,000 men!
Not sure about the Duke of York (Andrew) having 10,000 men, but can't vouch for the Earl of Wessex............
According to Bob Monkhouse, Edward was in the Royal Hussars. The only problem is nobody can remember Hussars he was in!
