    PhilB got a reaction from LSP_Matt in Happy 100th to the Royal Australian Air Force !   
    Apparently yesterday was the centenary of the founding of the RAAF.
    HM the Queen performed her first public engagement in several months at the Commonwealth Air Forces Memorial at Runnymede.

    If any of you have the film "Spitfire" on DVD then Mary Ellis and Joy Lofthouse feature.
    Mary at 101 was reunited with a Mk VIII that she delivered during the war and which she had signed at the time.
    It still bears her signature to this day.
    All now sadly gone but their service should never be forgotten.
    Couple of vids of them enjoying taking the controls of a Spitfire again before they passed away.

    Not many products can actually add a phrase to the English language (over here anyway) as Marmite "you love it or hate it" has been used about people.
    As in "She's a bit Marmite" you lover her or hate her.

     
    What it has also done is produce some really funny ads in the UK along the "love it or hate it" idea.
    Just a couple:

    I think it is. Its certainly an odd taste. Much more savoury,umami oriented.

    Interesting thing about salt though is that as mammals we have a specific salt appetite. If we've been sweating it out at work on a hot day outside, playing sport, something salty tastes extra delicious. Our brains way of ensuring we replenish what we're losing.

    PhilB got a reaction from Out2gtcha in Life under Lockdown.....What are we all missing the the most?   
    This is veering to the political which isn't really a surprise given the nature of the thread.
    I'm retired and have been bringing up a daughter on my own for the last 12 years (widowed) and she has just turned 16.
    I sit at the table on my lappy and she sits opposite me on hers "at school".
    They are doing full lessons online which is good.
    I was thinking back to the first "lockdown" in March last year and how different this current one is.
    With the vaccines rolling out cases are plunging fast although deaths are taking longer to reduce.
    In the first one "outside" was like a ghost town.
    A lot more cars on the roads with this one as people are taking advantage to do essential shopping which is allowed.
    People don't seem so "scared" as there is light at the end of the tunnel.
     
    My concern is that we should try and get back to normal when it happens.
    Not this "new" normal as that's a con.
    Back like we used to be.
     
    I don't think I'm unique in that I sometimes go on You tube to listen to favourite songs and end up spending a long time "remembering" others that appear as suggestions.
    I was going through ELO tracks the other day and found one which really took me aback.
    It seemed so strange to see what was going on in the vid.
    Not something I personally want to do but I hope we can get back to times when we can do this if we wish to and just be with people again.
