    Look at window ledges when the bricks lie on their side end pointing out or it can be a shaped curve decrotive feature and I think also on an arch when the brick/stone is positioned same as when you have a keystone at top but does not have to have the keystone.

    I still don't know what speed means.

    @ Taz: Sorry, but I'm still drowning under a sea of sketchbooks and Life Drawing assessment. Just popped here for a quick breather.

    It's just for Random, Skip. So all of the above

    I must admit, I thought to myself yesterday evening, "At least I'm not spewing this drivel on meet or 'sensible' threads"

    Is this thread for sly innuendo and online dating or is it just to keep the blizzard of bolx out of the meet threads? We've got Bennachie for friendly and Windy for witty* so can this one be dedicated to talking dirty or to spiteful rants and vituperation?
    Its definately going that way.

    Skip just because she reported you on here which is totally out of order. Do you not think that the punishment is a bit harsh ? surely you could have let her wear her Thor Lo's and Scarpa's

    Yeah, it's one I took of my girlfriend when we were at a music festival in the 1960s. Unfortunately, I'd taken so many drugs I wandered off and forgot I'd left her tied there - I hitched back to London before I remembered but, rather than go all the way back to the IoW to untie her, I just got meself a new girlfriend.

    Even ugly bastards could get girlfriends back in the 60s
