    It just goes to show what a sheltered life us crafters have! ;)

    Always look on the bright side, if you can't find it then polish up the dull side.

    Some innocent sayings have a different meaning now
    My brother worked in metal plating
    The company did lot of work for big hotels re plating taps etc
    One Friday night he came home from work and told mum his boss had offered him a big bonus if he worked all weekend rimming
    Back then it was edging things with gold or silver plate
    Can you imagine saying that now

    I told you I had led a sheltered life, so I had to look that word up. Erm, I can't say it is something that appeals to me personally!

    Many moons ago, late 50's, a singer called Sam Cooke used the words "where the people are so gay" in one of his songs. Paul Gambaccini in an interview about Sam Cooke said it was a form of homosexual double speak. Was it? I don't remember the word meaning anything other than happy in those days. Certainly the way Sam Cooke sang the song I have never had the feeling he meant it in any other way. I could be wrong of course, or maybe I am just innocent!

    Basically, we can't open our traps/gobs/mouths without somebody finding a double meaning. Sigh, I dunno what the world is coming to.

    I had to look that one up too. I’d wish I hadn’t now!

    There is a wonderful line at the end of a Noel Streatfield book which has completely changed its meaning: "When Mr Masters came home he was very different. He was gay now..". No wonder that the children's books of the 50s and 60s are no longer in print!!
