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

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 -
