Re: Is Norman OK?

  Please get some help, this is not how people behave as a community.

The rest of us do not always agree, but the general rule is that we all rub along, accepting our differences.

We may be the playground, but think on this, IF we are, then where would you be, alone in a corner, because no one in real life can put up with such behaviour.

As adults it is the same in say a pub, people won't put up with it, unless they have known the person previously and know that they are not 'their usual self' and I would hope that friends and family would direct them to get some help.

So playground folks, just get on with being well rounded human beings, having a bit of fun along the way, because life wouldn't be worth living without a smile and a bit of a laugh.

Re: Is Norman OK?


My favourite poem:

With many a curve my banks I fret
By many a field and fallow,
And many a fairy foreland set
With willow-weed and mallow.

I chatter, chatter, as I flow
To join the brimming river,
For men may come and men may go,
But I go on for ever.

I wind about, and in and out,
With here a blossom sailing,
And here and there a lusty trout,
And here and there a grayling,

And here and there a foamy flake
Upon me, as I travel
With many a silvery waterbreak
Above the golden gravel,

And draw them all along, and flow
To join the brimming river
For men may come and men may go,
But I go on for ever.

I steal by lawns and grassy plots,
I slide by hazel covers;
I move the sweet forget-me-nots
That grow for happy lovers.

I slip, I slide, I gloom, I glance,
Among my skimming swallows;
I make the netted sunbeam dance
Against my sandy shallows.

I murmur under moon and stars
In brambly wildernesses;
I linger by my shingly bars;
I loiter round my cresses;

And out again I curve and flow
To join the brimming river,
For men may come and men may go,
But I go on for ever.

My name is Richard , not Dick or any variant.
Dick is a crude name for a functional organ that is used as a derogatory name. Any reference to me as Dick will be met with equivalent response. Strange that it cant be policed better.

I don't think anyone is going to argue with thatBig Smile [:D]

On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

nomoss:

Its to do with a brook, not me.

Aren't your recent comments totally against any norms for ANY internet forum.

NB Iduns recent obvious racism has not been addresses - indeed its been reinforced by others.

Perhaps Archant need to sort this out.

Re: Is Norman OK?

Boring poem, too many silly rhymes, childish even, sort of thing you find in children’s anthologies.
Ticking over, just about.

Yes, I know, by Alfred Lord Tennyson, which I learnt in primary school. Except you missed out the first four verses.

Nevertheless, the punch line did seem appropriateBig Smile [:D]
