Would "di" be a good name for a Welsh radio engineer?

His adverts could read:

"Di 'll fix it."

If I used that name -- with all my inexperience -- my adverts would read:

"You'll die before I fix it!"

Must be Easter but the bunny kept the egg a little too long.


A radio personality in an Easter parade gave a short wave.

I saw a man deliberately sit on a hat. When I told the owner of the afore mentioned headgear, he said, "Oh yes, that's ok, when I am not wearing it I employ him as a cap a sitter.

April, 2014 is:
Amateur Radio Month

Did you know that the two inventors of the radio were on the same wavelength?




I suppose they would have been in tune with each other. It is said of some that they were from the same mould. These two weren't quite so alike, but they could have been said to have been from the same broad cast.

I was going to give you a few examples, but I don't want you think I'm trying to palm you off.

As I don't use sign language as a general rule of thumb, I am finding it hard to put my finger on the correct signage.

I wonder if they will celebrate English language day at Oxford University???

If the Chancellor of Oxford University were to be removed from his position on the grounds of mental instability, could it be said that he would have lost control of his faculties ?

Just create a signage index and write it on the middle of your pinky so you won't forget it.

By Jove, I think you've hit the nail on the head there Demo. It certainly has a ring of good sense about it.

Will you be offering further good advice, or will you wrist your case there. If need be, I can always throw you a life line.

"...offering further good advice..."????

C'mon, Don_1, you should know me well enough by now to know that I would rather not so much as even lift a finger!

Oh, and when you visit, don't forget to wash yourself after desert in the finger bowl right behind you.

And don't you even think of laying a finger on my wife. we'll both shake our fingers  at you for attempting that!
