  1. You'd make a great politician - you have answered a point which had not been asked!
  2. I didn't. Why not? Thank you for your opinion, to which you are fully entitled.

    Because they have undergone years of training, as you point out. I assume that your use of "paltry" is sarcastic.
  4. I beg to differ - but do PM me (or any other moddy) if you feel that you have been treated unfairly.

    Great Tits

    Is it about to prey on that unsuspecting little creature crawling along beneath it?

    Resign Threshold - TSB

    It is a pleasing addition to one's vocabulary, yes. It's actually not dissimilar to the older word "brok" which you'll hear in some parts of the North meaning "broken" - "Me shovel's brok". I assume that this derives from a German strong verb. I believe it's also a term for an Icelandic chanteuse.
  7. I fully realise that some boaters travel further in a day than others - the "half day's cruising" must be seen as an average (3 to 4 hours would perhaps be typical). By the same token,moored boats unmoor themselves and travel on, so they will be difficult to count!

    Resign Threshold - TSB

    I have never seen it. I assume that it's either a word of Jen's own invention, or a variation upon the better-known "baulked", meaning impeded or hindered. But as for the customer's front end, the mind boggles, or perhaps borkles....

    Difficulty in choosing a hire company

    Welcome to CWDF, Flotsam, and thank you for this useful information.
  11. Alan, I am as guilty as the next man when it comes to typo's - but some of them are unintentionally funny or pleasing, as this one was.

    But not as short as that.

    The English language is a thing of constant wonder - and sometimes of incomprehensibility.
