Why do you feel the need to make a sarcastic post on a perfectly innocent thread?

Get over yourself, he did post a smilie with the comment, so people knew he was joking. Some people just have to look for the worse in every post by certain members..

The 'i'.

In my defence yer 'onor I am normally quite good at cryptic crosswords but like you I couldn't shift my mind away off The Beatles.

I think he can speak for himself but thanks for the comment.

It just irks me Mike now and again when almost everything put on this board ends in either a slanging match, abuse or some kind of negativity.
