Glad about the no pp restrictions bit - certainly one to get the grey matter working.

My wife's currently trying to give up smoking. She's "smoking" some kind of plastic imitation cigarette which doesn't require lighting.......

That'll save on matches, but does it smoke?

No entry from me this week. Been too busy with all sorts of things (including photography) to even think about smoke and/or fires, and of course we did not have a bonfire at my (voluntary) 'workplace' this week!

A quick one from me this weekend, I wanted to get outside and try burning some green leaves to make some real smoke but with all the rain, sleet and bits on snow today it was a good day to stay inside!!

Physically struggling this week with the flu, but in with a quick rough. A souvenir shot (a real blast from the past  :o while visiting a friend my seat certainly shook before the mug of tea wet my knee) that I will retake when the damn head cold has gone and there is more time available to set and light the scene.

HaHa! You'll think I copied you but didn't see the entries beforehand - and haven't time to re-think and re-shoot!
(BTW, in case anyone's concerned: it's been fired and inserted into a fired case)
Whatever and ever. Amen

Any similarity between my entry and any others of those from today's meet is purely and utterly coincidental ...

I must be terminally stupid but setting up the poll with entries placed into the Options (1, 2, 3, etc) and all it'll give me is an error that The message body was left empty.

Well, I know it's empty as I don't want anything beyond the entries! Suggestions?

Glad your bullet and case is not live Markulous; my shot shows the danger when they are, and inadvertantly fall from the mantle into the fire!

Luckily the bullet got buried in the fabric below my bum and not into my tackle (although I certainly felt the shockwave through my jeans and was glad I was not sitting cross legged on the sofa when the gas fire cover flew off and the bullet ricoshaded across the room).

No idea re the poll, but sure someone can assist.

The Message body is where you place the message like, this poll is now open etc., it's not the option boxes.  :doh:

Flippin' heck! I was wondering why the casing was all distorted like that! You were lucky!
