Noelle is wearing an outfit that she design and made herself, with the aid of sunglasses and a pint of Long Island Iced Tea. The outfit would be ideal for a visit to an abattoir, or initiation into a Nunnery.

Every year, thousands of mushrooms are purchased for Christmas. People buy them "to have in an omelette" or "maybe we'll have a fry-up" or "I fancy a mushroom rissoto on BoxingDay". Laudable aims.
However the reality is that the musrooms are left forgotten at the back of the fridge, alongside the trifle-infused cheese, and are thrown out in January when mum has a clear out fridge day.
It's a waste.
Remember - A Mushroom Is For Christmas, Not For Life.
Bonus - No CGI, This REALLY Happened.
Bonus 2 - Remember to clear off all snow from your car.

Unusually, I have a fairly good idea of the subject of this slide.
No, not Mrs Ethel Kubrista, nor her gently psychedelic dress.
But a close examination of the mode reveals "Lower cost housing scheme, Daledene, Lewes Road, East Grinstead". And here's a flat answering that description.
So, something about Scientology. Maybe.
Bonus - 8 .... 9 ... 10 ...

These two, let's call them Mr & Mrs X (even though they're actually Archie and Sandra Higgins), may appear to the very epitome of decency, are in fact swingers.
In fact, I have it on good authority that under that black woolen coat, Mrs X is wearing just a string of pearls. Mr X, is wearing a device known as The Devil's Saucepan, and is the cause of his grimacing face.
Bonus - What The Heck, Bangkok????
Bonus 2 - Back-Flip like a Champ!

Yes, it's slide number 3400, and it's of "Lord Ronald Gower, Stratford."

I was looking for a suitable slide to mark World Toilet Day, but this one caught me eye. The Grand Opening (?) of All-Ways Travel in Feb 1969. Location - I know not, but Florida seems to be a possibility. Maybe someone will recognise the names of Elizabeth Persons
