Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

I'm about to send in a voicemail message to JBR for the upcoming mailbag episode as i haven't done it in ages. Any tips and advice? I have recorded a number of times and nearly bottled it.

Have you ever heard of the Emancipation Proclamation?"

I asked a question while some of us watched FRWL last night, bus sadly we were sidetracked by the movie and the sad fact that I wrote Fleming wrong  ajb007/amazed .
I wondered how the people who worked on the Enigma code machine reacted when they read or watched FRWL? Many of us know the Germans thought the Enigma code was never broken while the fact that the British broke the code was one of the most closely guarded secrets of WWII. Many of us also know Ian Fleming was one of the few who were allowed to know this. I picture one of those few Germans and British who knew about Enigma sitting in the cinema going: "Hold on, that muct be ……."
Did they suspect Fleming was in on the secret? Do we know of any reactions to the Enigma/Lektor link?
What do you think the reactions were?


One member of the history forum replied:

I certainly remember seeing at least one interview with an ex Wren codebreaker from the 90s or early 2000s where she spoke of her shock and, to an extent, sense of betrayal when the book came out. She had never even told her own family what she really did in the war.

Boris would look a lot better if he actually lived here!

In an obvious effort to outdo CHB I'm re-posting two videos of avalanches from my county. The top one is from this week.

I just saw the SpeceX rocket on TV. It's probably a good thing the US won't be dependent on Russia to launch Rockets into space.
It's also nice to see I have better weather than Florida right now.   ajb007/shifty

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

Well my AJB friends my long hours of working to cover for people and do my own duties have paid off. I have been promoted, in fact I have jumped two ranks. Instead of a 'One Bar' Senior Security Officer, I am a 'Two Bar' Chief Security Officer and swap my blue uniform shirts for white ones (and a white peaked hat cover!) Best of all I have a very healthy pay rise! A change in rotas may mean I have more free time and (I hear the groan) more time to return to AJB.

One More bar and I will look like Commander James Bond! Well, I can never exactly be a lookalike but uniform wise will suit me!

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

Finally got 'round to getting a quarantine haircut. When the barbers open, i'm getting it all shaved off.

Been losing my hair for a few years now.

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

^I have occasionally had a quarantine beard. I'd get to the point where it itches and shave it all off.

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

It's important to shave your beard while it still itches. If you keep it it will stop itching and all non-social reasons to shave will be gone.

Something for Daniel Craig('s stuntman) perhaps? From the Geiranger fjord yesterday.

Tom Cruise wouldn't need a stuntman, would he?
