After a day travelling around the city a decent meal and a watch of the football we said our good-byes and were about to leave when a dig in the pocket failed to come up with my car key. Lots of searching, but to no avail, I had lost my car key. We tried to think of the places it could be but we'd done an awful lot during the day and it wasn't possible to retrace steps at 11pm. We had been in my friend's car but they couldn't find it there. We decided to sleep over and think about it in the morning. Major problem was that the spare key was in our apartment and the apartment keys were in the car.

    I didn't get a lot of sleep last night as I hunted through my mind trying to think of where the key might be. I have deep enough pockets for it to be pretty safe and, although I have lost house keys many times, never have I lost the car key.

    Around 3am, I pictured myself holding the key while sat in the front seat of the friend's car. I put it in my front left pocket (as always) while sitting down rather than the usual stood up position. Before we got out of the car I called for a mask check, also in the left pocket. Key must be in the gap between seat and centre console. We checked this morning and there it was! Panic over and the mystery solved.

    Wife is getting worried about the way I am losing things of late. Last week it was the mystery of the missing glasses, still unsolved and I am wearing my spare ones. This week the car keys, what's in store for us next week?
    I lost my car keys a while ago. Hunted high and low, retraced my steps, and returned home to be informed that the gf had found them.
    I had put them in the fridge with some fresh produce the last time I unloaded the shopping.

    He put them on so he could see his feet.

    After that everything's a blur.

    Good Lord ... and these people breathe . . . (from SK's article):

    Sherri Tenpenny: The COVID-19 vaccines make people "magnetized. They can put a key on their forehead, it sticks. They can put spoons and forks all over them, and they can stick."

    Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, an Ohio-based osteopathic physician who wrote a book called "Saying No to Vaccines," has been identified by the news site rating service Newsguard as a "super-spreader" of COVID-19 vaccine misinformation. A watchdog group at McGill University in Montreal found that she is one of 12 influencers responsible for 65% of anti-vaccine misinformation spread on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
    Tenpenny has previously pushed false claims that the COVID-19 vaccines can cause death and autoimmune disease, disrupt pregnancies and "shed" to affect unvaccinated people.
    Her latest comments came as she testified at the invitation of Ohio’s Republican lawmakers in favor of a bill that would prevent businesses or the government from requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

    "I’m sure you’ve seen the pictures all over the internet of people who’ve had these shots, and now they’re magnetized," Tenpenny said during the June 8 hearing. "They can put a key on their forehead, it sticks. They can put spoons and forks all over them, and they can stick. Because now we think that there’s a metal piece to that."

    I guess someone had to come up with that. It might get a bit confusing though.

    Because now we think that there’s a metal piece to that.
    Can't you just picture ole 'shroom cock saying that?

    They can, and should, be struck off the register for such misinformation.

    The price of timber has sky rocketed since the Suez canal debacle, spent about £500 so far this week and I'm only half way there with my construction.

    It's down to several factors, and it's been rising for a lot longer than since the suez problem.

    One factor is the weakness of sterling, another is sky rocketing demand.

    Strengthening slightly over the last 12 months does not mean that sterling isn't weak, you drugged up idiot.

    It has nothing to do with the price of Sterling.

    So when did the price of lumber really start going through the roof?
    It wasn't 10 years ago, like the chart in your edited post


    It's simply supply and demand due to closed sawmills since the pandemic started, you sober tosser.

    Oh, is the relative weakness of sterling not mentioned in your link to an article created by and produced for people in the USA?

    Go on then, send us a link to something that backs up your theory of timber prices having skyrocketed due to the weakness of the £

    Yeah, sure. 'cos I'm so anxious about this challenge.



    You can google, right?

    Top Tip: Include 'sterling exchange rate'.

    No relief for DIYers: Lumber’s retail price hits all-time high—up 323%
    May 25, 2021 12:48 AM GMT+7

    We're amid a historic North American lumber shortage. It's why home builders, who are worried they won't get the materials they need for spring and summer projects, spent weeks engaging in a fierce bidding war over lumber futures. That frenzy seems to have reached its climax: Since May 10, the July futures contract price per thousand board feet of two-by-fours has fallen from over $1,700 to $1,453. While that's still well above pre-pandemic levels—when it typically traded in the $300 to $500 range—the pullback has many in the industry believing the worst of the price surges is over.

    (why not to export the timber to US? - if some containers available)

    I purchased a large bottle of top of the line real Canadian maple syrup failing to see a hairline fracture at the bottle of the glass bottle. Overnight this lovely syrup has dripped all down my shelf and half way across my hardwood floor, the whole friggin' bottle. The is no other product on the planet that even comes close to maple syrup for it's outright stickiness. Just looking at the stuff makes me feel .....very sticky.

    How to remove this fine syrup from my floor or should I just put a match to it?

    The weather forecast was for thunderstorms today so I ventured out to buy a tarpaulin to cover my mancave construction. Needless to say it didn't rain.

    However, this really should be in the daily cheer thread....

    I claimed about £200 of free timber.
