Tim Nice But ... Unoriginal As Ever
I was a regular for decades, but the last couple of years I've been commuting from near Bournemouth to near Oxford (150 mile round trip) every day. Means I'm not so keen on the road trip to HQ at weekends. So, I guess that makes me a part timer, not a real fan, and all round bit of a nib-nob.

Tim Nice But ... Always Good For A Platitude, Not A Duck Billed Platitude - That's Something Completely Different.
It would be a shame to witness it's demise, but unless we can somehow entice the masses back it's a tumbleweed place. Still the first port of call for me, even if I'm not overly active here. I refuse to even visit the fake org and always will.
Tim Nice But ... Fighting Against The Tide
I knew an 'orny theologist once, right tit he was, a bit ruff. He wood pigeon hole (which is probably illegal in these PC gone mad days) everything. Robin bustard he was, bit of a dipper, dunnock owl he got away with it. Eider thought he'd've been dunlin time by now. Egrets, he had a few (something else that's also illegal).....

Damn these divisive times, where's the justice, the compassion, the togetherness? Dark times indeed.....
Tim Nice But .... Freedom For Tooting!
During my formative years at school our year could be divided down the middle. Half being hairy, hippy types interspersed with a smattering of not quite so peace loving heavy metal types. The other half having considerably less hair, a much smarter sense of style and a penchant for tamla, philly, atlantic powered soul, interspersed with a smattering of ska and reggae. I was firmly in the second half and still find myself looking for tonics and crombies and loafers.
Tim Nice But .... Still Sporting Docs After All These Years
Robert M Pirsig has died at the age of 88. I really enjoyed Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance (A Inquiry Into Values). A classic duality. Both a good story and a valuable lesson on life all rolled into one. Also enjoyed Lila (An Inquiry Into Morals). Stumbled on Zen at a charity shop. It's one of a small selection of books I've kept and read many times.
Tim Nice But .... Well Red, Shoe Tread, Bookish Thread
Perfidious from the latin perfidia "treachery" - includes Janus faced as part of it's definition - two faced: insincere and deceitful. Sums them up nicely.
