Oh Les, I can't believe you know me so well just from playing Chihuahua.....🍸🍺🍻🍷🍹🍶

Thanks Ozzyjack for the link....what a great website!
I'm pretty sure it will "waste" an awful lot of my time. I will need to learn how to walk away from it,

I second those thoughts, Les. Well said!

I've been following "silently" and just love the idea of Les having Twisted Humerus Syndrome...well done on coming up with that.

A homonym is a word that is said or spelled the same way as another word but has a different meaning. "Write” and “right” is a good example of a pair of homonyms.
HOMONYMS are words that sound alike but have different meanings. Homophones are a type of homonym that also sound alike and have different meanings, but have different spellings. HOMOGRAPHS are words that are spelled the same but have different meanings.

You do sound like a teacher and I get that. I was a teacher too...not English though. I can't remember how to do the "quote" thing and I will go back and look...the above were copied & pasted from the many answers that appeared when I Googled homonyms/homophones/homographs....I thought I was fairly safe saying homonyms...but apparently not. No offence taken  ;D

Shame that CYNICISM only has 8 letters!

By the way...was anyone else amused by the number of homonyms in the HEADLINER puzzle ? I know...I'm very easily amused ;)

The comments from birdy are very similar to my own sentiments...I love to hear (read) what other people are getting up to....even if my interests aren't exactly the same. I was surprised that I recognized The Irish Washerwoman when I checked on Youtube. I'm sure your audience's spirits will be greatly lifted by such a lively tune.
Up until a couple of years ago, my father and his wife have entertained with a bit of music and singing at a number of Nursing Homes and Aged Care facilities in and around Brisbane....he's slowed down a bit 94 !

Please tell us which traditional Irish tune your grandmother played...and that you now play.

Hi Penny...I know it's Jeff Thomson (1st in line) and Greg Ritchie last. I'm pretty sure it's Mike Whitney in the middle. If I'm wrong,  I'm sure Les or Jack will tell us. !

Quite possibly it's not just you, Pat. It could be me, too.

Hi Penny...I suspect a lot more than just Jack and Les will be interested in this topic.
I have friends who watch NO sport whatsoever and today I have had conversations with 2 of them....about the cricket. It is so disappointing that this has happened...or does it happen more often than we know-but got caught on camera this time?

When I Googled Zambuck, it triggered the "old" brain opposed to those which work on recent stimuli....and it's been driving me mad all morning. Never heard of Zambuck but it all sounded very familiar. After some time and some "creative" Googling I have retrieved the information from the darkest  archives of my memory.
Does anyone else remember the Rawleigh's salesman coming to the door and selling Rawleigh's Medicated Ointment....first aid kit in a can....used for almost everything imaginable?
