    I too thought Sheeple were some bi-product of some very strange activities going on late in countries with large populations of both sheep and single men. Many sheeple sadly grow up not knowing who their father was, or why they walked on two legs unlike the other sheep. And many sheep optimistically wake up the next morning and sit beside their phone for the day just waiting for 'that call'. Men are horrible. For the few sheep that do find the fathers, they're more likely to get a horrible threat then help...

    "Child Support? I could support your child with some mint sauce perhaps?"

    To link things back, many a single mum sheep can be found crying in her beer reminiscing over that magical night...

    Evil eyes? No, I think they have beautiful eyes. Goats and sheep can not be evil, they do not think

    Sheeple on the other hand are a mixed thing of man and beast, so they can be evil.

    Man has a choice, he can choose to be evil or not.

    Well I shall certainly be keeping my eyes open!

    In the spirit of drifting... I was given two books for my birthday and I'm nearing the end of the final Harry Potter so I have to decide between them both.

    Do I read Whinston Churchills autobiography of his first 25 years, or Richard Bransons autobiography? Who is the more interesting? Branson, the king of Entrepreneurs vs. Churchill, the king of quotes...

    I think Churchill is a must. What a wise man he was.

    I have stumbled across many a Churchill quote in my time. I even was given a book last Christmas called 'Great British Wit : A book of quotes' or something like that, and although it is full of quotes from many many sources, Churchill is the books front cover!

    And in my Michel Thomas biography (the most amazing read), there's one I hadn't come across before. Apparently when France surrendered in part to Germany they claimed we would follow including a quote from someone high up saying "Germany will ring Britains throat like a Chicken".

    After we had kicked some behind, Churchill simply said... "Some throat... Some Chicken"! We need a prime minister like him again to inspire us to be patriotic again, hoorah!

    A lot of countries would do nicely with a man like that

    The fountainhead of his wit was his wisdom, without that there could not have been these wonderful short statements, the sums of his thoughts really, disguised as quips.

    Well thank you Datura. You have helped me conclude my dilemma. Mr. Branson will follow Mr. Churchill.

    This site is quite hard to follow, I always seem to catch threads as they die off...

    Not to worry, I'll get the hang of it!

    Yes, the site is overwhelming when you just start out. A good way to get into the beginning of threads is to look at the Unanswered Threads and Latest Forum Posts in the header. That way you do not miss anything

    That's what's so good about the drifting thread (Datura's handiwork), you can just drift back into it when you have something to say or read other peoples thoughts on things and events as they happen.
    There are three kinds of men:
    The ones that learn by reading.
    The few who learn by observation.
    The rest of us have to pee on the electric fence.

    I went to see Churchill's house the other day, Chartwell in Kent. A beautiful, beautiful place. He was a pretty interesting bloke, quite a good painter, a lover of butterflies, gardening and building brick walls, and a complete workaholic too. His wife had an amazing bedroom and he just had a tiny box room behind his study for the rare occasions when he slept. She had some dodgy taste in curtain colours.

    My favourite:

    There are a couple of films made for TV in the sixties about Winston Churchill still available on DVD. I had one called "The Churchill years" but loaned it out only for it never to be returned. Why do I do that?

    That sounds like one worth while watching. Was that a BBC production Chris?

    thread drift.... that's the key spence


    The BBC, gives me Michael Palin documentaries... how I love them. And David Attenbourgh also.. I love them. Just yesterday I was watching a Cheetah with two cubs hunting and battling the elements to survive. That is great TV.

    Nothing like the Planet Earth series. David Attenborough has to be one of the best narrators ever.

    Not really, all I kept thinking is "this might well be gone by the time my children are my age".
