May 2023:Quickfire A to Z of anything/everything

Post by NewcastleFalcon »

Yes we have a Citroenian columnist in our midst in supreme command of the "A to Z" Column in that publication.

Having restricted myself this merry month of may to POTD entries for my camerawork of the subject matter of Wrens, Shadows, and Roe Deer I needed something to do with this...

If we can get 26 entries on the thread with at least one for each of the letters A to Z, the thread will have been a roaring success. In the interests of laziness I will not be curating or moderating the thread with pedantry, just hope it gets a few joiners in. Couldn't care less about order or duplication.

If you ever wondered if you had the misfortune to break down in Northumberland, why the AA took so long to arrive, be patient. They do enjoy a drink!

A is for AA

I regret not taking a photo of all the Amazon vans trying to get into a petrol station last Friday.

This thread will give my morning runs a focus... I'll be looking for 'C' stuff tomorrow morning ;)

Guess its my B's day. Bit chilly today again so far but surely there will be a decent sized Bumble Bee to get the shutter click at some point.

This is a bit of a placeholder but more than adequate for my "B".
Yes we all know about the random number generator...I use this one frequently https://www.random.org/
...but what I needed for "B-day" was a random word generator and here it is... https://www.thewordfinder.com/random-wo ... f65ee929ae

The advanced options allow you to do a "starts with" condition. So it churns out 100 words beginning with "B", not sure really how random it is, but it will do for now.

Randomising its choice of words within the 100, with a random number selection, out popped "Buck" (RN 96)

I thought I had seen a buck the other day when looking for my farthings.... :-D

As I am suffering a certain muscular stiffness resulting from yesterday's polishing I am unlikely to venture out today so my 'B' entry has to come from within: :-D

Nice resourceful work Mick! I was doing a fairly simple crossword the other day and the clue was Billiards like game played on a smaller table answer required "Bagatelle". This is the thing we always called "Bagatelle" might as well dig it up on "B-Day". Its more a precursor to "Pinball" than the "Bar Billiards" imagined by the crossword, although it would require some research before the nearest establishment offering Bar Billiards could be found for a B-Day photo :-D

An early "C's" stike on Coronation Day with a tin of Carnation Evaporated Milk, nicely offset with the July 1979 edition of Car Mechanics Magazine, open at my favourite column "Trade Tricks-Barry Cade's Garage Casebook.

One of my favourite bits of the FCF are our very own Gibbo's Garage Casebook! contributions across many threads :-D
