    Bournemouth are closing Dorset’s biggest vaccination centre for a month to hold a 3 day cheerleading event... 9000 a week get vaccinated there but it needs to close for a month to observe Covid protocols.
    They are also discussing next week whether to replace Mrs, Mr, Miss and Ms with Mx in all communications.
    It all happens down here.

    Indeed, but usually 3-30 years behind the rest of the country. ;)

    It's all old folks in Bournemouth, so they don't need the vaccination capacity anymore. ;)

    When I worked near there they'd only just got the knack of manned flight. At least, they'd worked out how to go up and come down but horizontal was still a bit of a problem...

    Last time I had a holiday in Bournemouth there was a hurricane, drove the Armada onto the rocks...

    20,000 ? That's an awful lot of mature students .
    I suppose if you've retired and moved to Bournemouth there's nothing else to do apart from sit on the front .
    You might as well sign up at the uni and study something new .

    Buses , as in plural ? You have more than one now ? :D
    Wow , that's progress for you !

    In over 40 years I've only been on the "Front" to drown some worms (AKA fishing) or watch the air show from the cliff top plus a few attendances at the summer weekly Sunday classic car gathering. Mostly we leave the front to the grockles.

    So you need no more jabs until August when the new versions come in.

    A new version of the vaccine or a new version of Covid ? :eek:

    A new version of the former to deal with new versions of the latter.
    You are right to pick me up on my ambiguous language, We should all try to improve our language. English is going to the dogs.

    Depends on context. MJB liked your comment. If he got your meaning I guess you are on about muck on a sheep's tail.
    I didn't know that; I looked it up.
