    Yes but through my tired eyes I read it as Ha Bumhug, which is a bit weird, but whatever floats yer boat.:)

    Better than Bah Hamburger - the Janissaries would have loved that, according to Pangloss!

    Oh! where did you get those from, or who makes them? That would sort out one of my Christmas present challenges!

    They are made by a company called YENKEE - their caps, not mine!
    They are described as 'LED Sync & Charge Micro USB cable'.

    Part numbers are:-
    Blue YCU 231 BE https://www.yenkee.eu/led-micro-usb-cable/ycu-231-be#Overview
    Red YCU 231 RD https://www.yenkee.eu/led-micro-usb-cable/ycu-231-rd#Overview
    Green YCU 231GN https://www.yenkee.eu/led-micro-usb-cable/ycu-231-gn#Overview

    They are packed in very nice cardboard boxes with an opening front flap, and a plastic widow so you can confirm the colour.

    Where the devil you get them in the UK, I don't know, as Amazon doesn't stock them, and the only ones on eBay are all from China - but dirt cheap. You probably have time to get some sent before Christmas, though.

    Do they make a version for a Widower?

    September, October and November have been truly and utterly shit. So December can go get stuffed.

    Bah humbug.

    I think I say every year that my favourite Japanese word is that for 'bauble' - it translates literally as 'cheap shiny object'!!

    I'll have you know the above bauble is an antique - well, about 60 years old anyway! :) :p

    I still have no idea what we are doing for Xmas yet, who is coming, where we are going etc. The CCO has not communicated it to me. I know we are not escaping to anywhere warm, so I guess I will be getting the instruction to go into the loft and get all the decorations down in about 2/3 weeks time.
    Then the godawful trip to the nursery, stuff a ridiculously large tree into a car that was not designed for it, hack the stump of it down until it fits into a stand that was also not designed for it and wrestle the entire thing indoors, which was also not designed......

    We have a token tree - a tiny thing which will sit on the china cabinet ( no china inside - my camera collection lives there).Christmas dinner (lunch) is at our daughter's place, probably a barbecue, this year.

    Baubles, bangles and beads was a song from the musical, Kismet.
    Here's the 'Divine' Sarah Vaughan's version:
