I had to Google that.

I had no idea Trotsky was killed with an ice-axe! Jesus that's a grim weapon to use.

Every day is a school day.

I’ve acquired a lot of decent used stuff off eBay over the years.

My most unusual purchase was 6 standing stones for my garden.

 

What proper ones or reproductions?  Sound great

The weapon used to kill Lev Bronstein (to give him his real, Jewish name) is usually described as an ice pick.

I think more this kinda thing than an ice axe or climbing tool :

They were used to break up chunks of ice into smaller pieces.

Proper ones. When I was thinking about the idea for a feature I could only find slate ones at around £50 each. Luckily someone on eBay had listed six natural standing stones that were all different types of stone and similar heights, around 2ft, at £10 each. Nobody else bid for them so the stones cost me £60 and the cost of getting them sent to me on a pallet. I think that was about £80.

I think I’ve posted a picture before on here before but can’t find it on my device.

That single was released in the same week I was born, or the week after (just to make you all feel old!).

Love the keyboard playing in this.

A grandfather clock suspension spring.

A cheap and effective repair for damage done during a house move

I've just put a new suspension spring in my clock, which will annoy XYY, as it is French.

Have you also put a new pendulum in your car?

Not as much as that new "Prince Albert" you've just installed between your nob-end and your bollocks Jimmy Somerville.

Being French is one thing - being as bent as "une note de neuf bob" is quite another...!!!

I know as a discerning gentleman you need and use only the best, so it may very well  be French going by the name but I know you must use 'Davlyn Black'.
