  • @b4xter     I just tried it and works fine. I tried that blue icon a few months ago and it would not work for me then.   The picture that I took at the time,  had been taken using the camera setting for printing up to 16 x 20 in prints (16M).  I thi…
  • 1958  hallmarked  silver with a gilded interior.My one and only posh snuff box. The other few are impractical wooden ones.This is small, curved, and fits in the pocket lovely.
  • The post by @Mouse      "Handy if you are out in the woods deer hunting, less likely to get shot while taking a pinch." Reminds me of a hilarious article that I read many years ago here in the UK. Not sure if it was about Canada or USA  but apparent…
  • Nice to see this article on Lundy Foot being revived. @Johnny mentioned about the story being covered by        The New York Mirror 1833. I took this to be the original report on the fire, and assumed this to be the date of the accident. After a qui…
  • @perique   I tried the item number a few times and I cannot find it.  Searched for Slater Bros.etc , still no joy. Is the item number correct ?
  • The only two suppliers of tobacco leaf in the UK look like they have been stymied by the powers that be.The alternative here is to grow your own.    Thankfully seed is still for sale.As there is quite a bit of knowledge here already on making your o…
  • @dan11      Wigan is in Greater Manchester. A transvestite once told me she/he went on a cruise down the Rhine.She told me that she fell overboard.I asked her if she dragged herself up on deck."Oh no" she said, "I just dressed casually." 8-|
  • @peacock      I looked up  Occam's Theory.   I can base my entire life around it now. I have one great assumption, so it must be correct according to Occam. Here it is.Absolutely gorgeous  women never ask me to take them out. The reason is that th…
  • @basement_shaman Another little known fact.    Yet to be verified. Although claimed by the Americans,  the atomic bomb was actually invented by the British and Australians.We had made great progress in the field of nuclear physics and fusion but bec…
  • @basement_shaman Took a bit of finding but well worth a read. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2340053/U-S-baseball-expert-proves-baseball-played-England-royalty.html "bafs-ball"                    old print a script used  an   f   as an   s …
  • @Roderick   What do you expect from a country that claims to have invented baseball and has a "World Series" that is only open to American Leagues!
  • @peacockI got a   "warm throbbing sensation in my nose" when I got caught pinching some one else's  rustica.  :))

  • @MrSnuffGood Morning  MrSnuff  . Although the English are regarded by Napoleon and the French as  "a nation of shop keepers",and I probably should know better,  I am a little confused with some of the abreviations used in your accounts on 14th July …
  • @matteob      Regarding the confusion with S.G. Kendal Brown Labels in June.The labels may have changed since the new rules came into effect. The tin I have in front of me was bought about January this year. Usual Sam. Gawith reddy brown backg…

  • I do hope I am not being rude, but is this a text message?Bit jumbled to me. :-/

  • @basement_shaman       "bug snuff" reminded me that for many years tobacco snuff was mixed with water and used as a garden pesticide.It was also used as a nostril rinse for flushing parasites out of sheep's noses. I will look through the old newsp…
  • @matteob     It might not be to do with credit cards.  Have a look at the following link. https://www.fda.gov/ICECI/EnforcementActions/WarningLetters/2015/ucm429538.htm If this is a genuine article,  then it would seem that not all of the problem…
  • @ArgentOrangeOK40 years is nothing to worry about.    I just worked out, I was told that joke by my physics teacher in 1970.      That was 47 years ago. It seems to have stood the test of time.
  • @basement_shaman I take it that 9.8.62 is August 8th 1962.According to  Wiki.    On that day   Elizabeth "Ma" Duncan was the last woman to be executed in America until the law was changed and execution brought back in 1977.Quite a gruesome charac…
  • The work horse reminds me of an old Spoonerism. What is the difference between a knights steed and a brewery dray horse ? A knights steed darts into the fray. A brewery horse farts into the dray. :)) =))
  • "Is there a "Gentleman's Guide to Taking Snuff"?" Most certainly there is. Wait until the shopkeepers back is turned.Then quietly pocket as many tins as you can.Leisurely stroll out of the shop.Once out of sight, run like mad, and try not to get ca…
  • @basement_shaman "Computer Room."    You had it soft. When I was a lad at school electronic pocket calculators hadn't been invented !The only things we had in that line was a Slide Rule and a book of Log. Tables. The first calculator I saw in the fl…
  • @yisraeldov I think that is a face powder compact. It looks like it has flat faces at the edges that close against each other.  Wont keep the snuff from leaking out.  The old snuff boxes have a lid that sits inside the walls the bottom tray and …
  • @Aamon It is a link to ebay in a post about  Gallahers Silver Snuff Boxes.I tried photos a couple of times but it does not work for me.This was a copy and paste of the internet address that appears when you get onto some ones site.  In this case  an…
  • @Aamon        Hello again. It looks like it worked for yisraeldov.And it still works for me.Definitely well worth having a category for trying out these things in my opinion. :)>-

  • @JackGrave    Nice one Jack.    I thought English was difficult enough.Cheers.
  • @matteob   After reading some other posts, I became a little apprehensive.   I sincerely hope my comment on the difficulty of foreigners learning English has not been taken as a slight against anyone. I genuinely believe that "British" English is…
  • @peacock   People are not compelled to explain how they run their business, but a  brief explanation of the whys and wherefores of the process would have been much more agreeable than the response from  @miamimark  of  "who cares?"I most definitely …
