SM is the most mobile member we have, his trouble shooting takes him to all corners of the globe it seems so he has a wider appreciation of others lives than the rest of us . Tolerance of your fellow man might be his bugle call as he takes others to task.
Always ready for a pint with whoever is around in any corner of the globe.

Well, I do. COME BACK SATANIC! Hit us with musical quotes, slam us with contrasting good and similar evil behaviour, splashpaint us darker than evilly blackfaced.
Ah! Dr Faustus I presume

Presently trying to break through the Great Fire Wall of China in Zhoushan where I’m fighting scrubbers. If anyone fancies a pint do let me know

Re Marine Jockey, he’s most definitely real and is what he says he was , we had a whizzo time in Jacksonville watching Scotland play

There was another woman member on here a few years ago, I can't remember her name, but she was very interested in cruise ships and all things associated with that topic. However, she was toxic, and made everyone's life a misery on SN.
She was one of only two members who I ever put on my ignore list. The other one still languishes there.
Eventually this woman was shunted off to a sister site dealing only with cruises, and promoted to mod.
I have no idea if she reigned long, I have never visited that site.

I am sorry to hear that KR.
We exchanged a few private messages concerning RFA Regent and Resource, I think he had commanded one or both of them.

Hello Pat. I sailed with Lancastrian in Resource in 1981. He was a well respected Choff then. A fine shipmate possessed of a good sense of humour and in addition an accomplished pianist! There was an onboard piano, not an electronic keyboard. Quite frequently played by Lancastrian for the benefit of all.

Mr Philip, my Latin teacher had a similar version.

Caesar et sum jam forte,
Brutus et erat,
Caesar sic in omnibus,
Brutus sic in at.

Why is it I recall that after some 60 years but fail to remember all his other teachings?

Poor Gloria, it may well have been in the subway. Maybe the Blackwall tunnel. Who knows?

Pat/Barrie, I'm still laughing at your response. It helps my Hangover.

Sic Gloria transit mundi;

Gloria was poorly in the minibus last Monday.

In loco parentis;

My Dad is an engine driver.



Our Latin teacher was a Pathfinder.

(That last bit is true! He had the shrapnel in his legs to prove it.)

Civile, si ergo
Fortibus es in ero
Gnoses mare, thebe trux.
Vatis inem?
Causan dux!

oft written inside the cover of many a Latin Grammar:
Latin is a dead language,
Dead as dead can be
First it killed the Romans
Now, it's killing me.

Aliquot personam stultus semper possum est.

Aliquot tempus stultus quantum personam possum est.

Personam tempus semper stultus non possum est.

With apologies to my various Latin masters 1954-59.

Not as witty but Post mane medicina would be more modern, more effective but perhaps less fun.
