      Hi JB. Aka Waldo or Jim to me,

      Consider the illustrious title "The Ornery One" well and truly transferred.  This is indeed a prestigious honour and one I shall hold with pride and try not to spew infelicitous felicitations (look them up guys I had to and I still think I still got them in the wrong context) from my big trap if I can take my size 9 medium out for long enough.

      Sorry guys I do tend to drop a bollock now and again but in keeping with my new title here’s another joke:-

      The Pope comes to Glasgow and asks "Anyone with 'special needs' who wants to be prayed over, please come forward to the front by the altar."

      With that, wee Brendon got in line, and when it was his turn, the Pope asked, "My son, what do you want me to pray about for you?"

      Wee Brendon replied, "Your Holiness, I need you to pray for help with my hearing."The Pope put one finger of one hand in Brendon’s ear, placed his other hand on top of his head, and then prayed and prayed and prayed.

      He prayed a great prayer for Brendon, and the whole congregation joined in with great enthusiasm.

      After a few minutes, the Pope removed his hands, stood back and asked, "Brendon, how is your hearing now?"

      Wee Brendon answered, "Ah don't know. It's no' 'til next week....."

      We all know and love Geoff, even when having to put up with his occasional tiffs lol.  Personally I think hes lying about the red wine and had an argument with one of his sheep.  See below the joke he sent me a while back...;)

      Geoff, I am officially transferring my title of  "The Ornery One" . Please wear it with honor....:D:D

      JB. aka Waldo

      A SCOTSMAN walks into the bedroom with a sheep on a leash and says...

      "Honey, this is the cow I make love to when you have a headache."

      The wife, lying in the bed reading a book, looks up and says,
      "If you weren't such an idiot, you'd know that's a sheep,
      not a cow."

      The guy replies, "If you weren't such a presumptuous bitch,
      you'd realize I was talking
      to the sheep."

      > Hi Adam Jim,
      >      First off let me apologize for my posting to your Trash Can enquiry, there was no malice implied.
      >     But you have to understand that not everybody who distils alcohol lives in the US, and what you know and take for granted is not known by everyone
      >      I.e.  A Rubber Maid Trash Can, is a bit like me taking it for granted that everyone knows what Treacle or Soda Bread, Spud Bread, Black pudding, or Boxty in a full Irish breakfast is.  It wasn’t until your second posting that you gave the name of said Trash Can and even then I was none the wiser.
      >      I know I was a bit obtuse in my posting but in my defence I only have the use of the right side of my body (from a stroke in 1999 and I now live in a wheelchair) and what I used to do and take for granted and know how to do I can't now, I now have to do things the long way round.  A simple thing like holding something in a vice is a major planning session just to hold it in position and tighten the vice with one hand. I just grind my teeth, get on with it and do it, even though I could so easily ask for help off HWMBO.  This approach is stubbornness and bloody mindedness on my part because I refuse to be beaten and I feel I have to prove to myself that I can do.  I also assume (wrongly on my part I must add) that every one takes the same approach to life hence my reply.  Right you can all put your Kleenex tissues away now I’m finished playing the sympathy card.
      >      Incidentally I do know the math route of, (Pi times R squared times the height) from the base to where you want the liquid level to stop.  And if it’s tapered you take the ‘mean’ radius or radii of the two circles and use that in the Pythagorean volume formula and this puts you as near as dammed in the ballpark for volume (that’s no bloody good me telling you that if it's rectangular.
      >      I didn’t know what shape it was, rectangular or a cylindrical container , but if rectangular it would be length times width (taking the 'mean' length and widths of top and bottom if it's tapered) times height. 
      >      Yes Jim you were quite right I was slightly two sheets to the wind on a bottle of that thar 14% abv red stuff and shouldn’t have been posting . 
      >      All I can say again, is sorry Adam and I now know that Rubber Maid is not just a chewy toffee sweet and is not a weird depraved rubber fetish (maybe it is).
