I used to have to sort out my parents computer as long my nephew's and nieces kept loading all sorts of carp on it. They are now old enough and sensible enough not to do that....now I have to sort out my great nephew's and nieces carp off the computer....

Surely there must be a carp park nearby?

I was pond-ering on that as well but I fear this topic is getting far too deep for me.

 :hmmm:

The mystery of the disappearing post? :uneasy:

I'm sure I had a notification of a lengthy one here in my email Inbox at 04:12pm but..............

Guess all this carping on has led us into the Twilight Zone.

Edit/update: checking my email boxes, seems post#913 in this thread has made an unexpected second appearance in my Inbox, two days after it's first notification.  Very strange :confused1: - but I shan't lose any sleep over it! :no:

 :beers:

One day God calls down to Noah and says "Noah, I want you to make me a new Ark".
Noah replies, "No probs God, anything you want after all you're the boss".
But God interrupts, "Ah but there's a catch this time Noah, I want not just a couple of decks, ..... I want 20 decks one on top of the other".
"20 DECKS!", screams Noah, "Well, OK Big Man, whatever you say, should I fill it up with all the animals just like last time?"
"Yep, that's right, well ..... sort of right.......this time I want you to fill it up with fish" God answers.
"Fish?" Queries Noah.
"Yep, fish ... well, to make it more specific Noah, I want Carp, wall to wall, floor to ceiling - Carp!"
Noah looks to the skies, "OK God, let me get this right, you want a New Ark?"
"Check".
"With 20 decks, one on top of the other?".
"Check".
"And you want it full of Carp?".
"Check"
"But why?" asks the perplexed Noah, who was slowly but surely getting to the end of his tether.
"Well...." says God, "I just thought it would be nice to have a Multi-Storey Carp Ark"

The original one has been restored and is alive and well at the Chiswick House Lantern Festival.

Hasn't reached us in North Hampshire yet.  :no:
Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

At least the garden looks tidy at last.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Yes, I'm quite divided. The child within is always pleased to open the curtains to snow. :bounce: But the adult me knows what chaos it brings. >:(
