johnr: my brother lives in brussels and last week pulled a set of clubs and a bag from a skip, took theem home and discovered theyre rtailed at 5000 euros per club! he has a full set of ten! 24k gold plated hand made in japan!! Oct 8, 2020 0:26:17 GMT
johnr: funniest thing is, he loves his golf but is left handed so he cant use them..... Oct 8, 2020 0:26:44 GMT
johnr: no idea what it means but apparently theyre 'honma twin marks 3 star'. tbh id be more interested if he found an abandoned honda in a skip, golf leaves me cold! still, nice to get for free! Oct 8, 2020 0:42:27 GMT

vlogdance: Jeff Lynne OBE! Oct 9, 2020 22:36:17 GMT
orioles70: Congratulations to Jeff! now what does that stand for: official British export? Overly Brummie Elocution? Omniscient Beatles Enthusiast? kidding aside, how high an honor is it? Oct 9, 2020 23:07:24 GMT
Timeblue: It's higher than an MBE but below a CBE if that helps! Oct 10, 2020 8:45:52 GMT
Timeblue: www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-11990088 Oct 10, 2020 8:47:33 GMT
orioles70: Thanks for the link @timblue. You Brits have some overly fancy names for things - "The system is overseen by the Cabinet Office Honours and Appointments Secretariat". I like how the public can submit suggestions - did any forum members nominate Jeff Oct 11, 2020 13:04:01 GMT
Timeblue: You can guarantee that Bev didn't.... Oct 11, 2020 18:49:29 GMT
