    He's not mean.... he is a proper English bobby ( or is that 'Bobby' - is it a proper noun in England? ).

    So no guff (sp??), right?! :) So 'speak' correctly....we've all (except Vicki :) ) been through our particular 1337 speak..

    or in true L337 speak:

    |-|3'5 |\|07 /\/\34|\|.... |-|3 15 4 pR0P3R 3|\|9L15|-| b0BB'/ ( 0R 15 7|-|@ 'B0BB'/' - 15 17 4 pR0P3R |\|0U|\| 1|\| 3|\|9L4|\|D? ). $0 |\|0 9UPhPh (5P??), r19|-|7?! :) $0 '5P34|<' (0RR3(7L'/....\/\/3'\/3 4LL (3><(3P7 \/1(|<1 :) ) b33|\| 7|-|R0U9|-| 0UR p4R71(UL4R 1337 5P34|<..

    What I meant Lucy is that Vicki is going THROUGH her particular linguistic investigations (as are you)...most of us have already done that (actually I'm STILL going through mine..I just don't write it down for the sake of others...heehee i wouldn't want to confusticate them). No slight to Vicki intended whatsoever. I would be afraid to...she's to good at Fishticuffs! :)

I am making this observation not to cause trouble ,but to make an observation . i love languadge and i really enjoy watching or reading people interacting with each other. here in texas your chanses of hearing a convesation in mixed spanish and english is very good . we call it spanglish or texican. here in the south western america . we will call a chicken a chicken or a pollo(poie-yoh)or the nieghbors loud rooster a rooster or a gaillo(ga-ie-Yo). so allin all it is fun just to go to the storeand listen to people talking. Well i see i have nattered on long enough . see ya'all later ...............

    Re adding location to GoogleMapDirectory -

    Click on words at the side of map "Add a location" this re-opens the map.
    Use the minus arrow (top left on map) to zoom out and then plus arrow back onto your bit of the world.
    Once there you can change to "Satellite" or "Hybrid" if you want to really get down to the fine detail. Move the map by holding down the mouse key and sliding.
    Pop your pin on by double clicking.
    Fill in as little or as much of the details below the map as you want.

    Have fun.

    Gloria hasn't been on in awhile, Frogdust. But I'm sure she'll be back. She usually only posts in "The Girls" thread when she comes on - so she probably won't see this note. But, watch for her in "The Girls" - she'll drop in at some point. She's not a native to that area. Can't remember how long she's been there. But she seems to love it!

    I couldn't find any full photos that looked OK when they're 32 by 32 pixels.
    So this is a close-up of the lovely black and white double lacing on the feathers of my neighbours' polish bantam, Tallulah (or Lula). Even this looks a bit blurry so small though.

    Oh. Just changed it back to Lula feathers while I think about what to do. I might go pointing a camera at chickens tomorrow to see if I can get a suitable picture for the icon size.

    Close-up of faces are always good for this, as if you try and fit the whole body in, it becomes a bit on the small side :D

    Having said that i love my avatar, it brings back good memories small or not :001_smile:

    I changed the avatar earlier, after I took some photos of my neighbours' cockerels, having been told that one of them had to go, so yes, 2 chickens now!

    They look like nice boys - are they Light Sussex? Like a Milly rooster? :P

    No, they're a cross between a big white rooster and a bantam hen that's either white, black, silver laced or silver double laced (Norman likes all hens). Their colouring looks a bit like crele if you see it up close - it's sort-of barred in grey and orange on white.
