Culture Vultures 17.09.20


Its September 17th and this weeks National Day is 'Talk Like A Pirate day' ; so here’s a couple of phrases that might be useful.


Ahoy, Me Hearties! : Hello, my friends, crew members, etc.

Avast Ye : Pay attention and check this out

September 18 1709 was the Birth date of Samuel Johnson, compiler of the first English dictionary, so my question this week is :


What is your favourite word in the dictionary? Head over to the brolly cafe forum and let us know your answer?


Mines got to be Bumfuzzle - which means being confused, perplexed or flustered, so describes me when trying to find my glasses, way or many other things lol.

Just before we get into today's vlog here is a note from the Brain Charity about exemption from mask wearing cards -

"People usually ask with the best intentions for the safety of you and the people around you, but it can be exhausting and embarrassing being challenged or having to explain yourself. Using an exemption or hidden disability badge, card and lanyard should help."

Just click on link for more info:


*September not March - obviously Bumfuzzled :)*

Ahoy me matey Corinne. I'm on the poop deck, up the crows nest raising a jar of rum in greetings to ye from the south to the north of the pool of life. Blimey another brilliant booty of treasure ye brung us... heartily calming the rough seas in case we have to batten down the hatches again.


This old salt checked out the women in art and aubrey and am glad I did. So much I didnt know. Great having the links making access easy. Signed up for the free wellbeing festival. And am going to check out David Olusoga later as really like him. He has lots of programmes too on iplayer.

Excellent Culture Vultures Vlogging as ever Corinne! Thanks for passing on the useful info from the Brain Charity and I am personally very excited to hear about the "Bloody Scotland" event. Ian Rankin can write a brilliant thriller and captures my hame toon , Edinburgh, with edgy realism! :)
