Anyone able to help with where/ what this screen grab is from (or details of the print on the wall - we know the book, but manufacturer/ year/ availability would be great)?

Don't know! My guess would be it's one of the "comedy" playlets on "GenerationxaGame", in which a professional cast did it once, then repeated it with contestants replacing some roles...? But with a career as long as Brucie's, it could be anything, and may be hard to pin down...

I'm not dependent on anything. Your broad brush stroke dismissal of others, however, suggests that you are. If you can't see the simple flaw in your initial statement, then that's sad.

Good grief, it's like herding cats! It was entirely wrong to say that there are no polls showing for impeachment: that was your claim, which is factually incorrect. You were wrong & rude to the poster, so rather than selectively critiquing one poll, all that is needed is apology.

Canny use of the apostrophe to come in on word count!

You were wrong: you made a claim that was not true; my example was simply the first in a list of many, any of which I could have linked to, but there are polls showing in favour, regardless of what you say (feel free to question their validity, but not their existence), or want.

No, not really. All that was called for was a simple acknowledgement that a) your statement was wrong, and b) an apology. But you obviously prefer insults and bluster, which rather undermine your credentials of what is and isn't accurate.

That’s still not the point: you rubbished someone and told them to do their homework, because *no* polls showed in favour of impeachment. I am saying your claim is demonstrably untrue: there *are* polls which show a majority of the US electorate in favour.

But still negates your claim that "all polls show the majority of Americans do not want him impeached."

Do you need a last-minute gift idea for a sci-fi / design-loving friend who doesn't yet own my book? I may just have a suggestion.

Surely such an eventuality would call - at the *very* least - for a cellophane wrapped square of Peek Freans fruit cake...? The highest form of buffet trolley confectionery!

As the end draws near, I'm thinking of all the kids facing serious health issues I've met over the years. Their determination & courage in the face of adversity is truly inspirational & has shown me there really are real-life heroes in this world. 💖

This amazing and strikingly modern-looking photograph of the Holy Trinity Church in Bishops Road, Paddington, was actually taken by William Fox Talbot way back in 1845. It seems inconceivable that this view is really 174 years old! The church itself was demolished in 1984.
