To decant liquid with a flowing stream
Mine is not liquid but the pouring of flower to bake scones. My daughter and my niece are busy in the kitchen baking scones, my sister is bringing the homemade strawberry jam, anyone got any cream?
Lyrics from "Old Red Eyes Is Back" by The Beautiful South
Listen up old red
You never listened to a word the doctor said
He told you if you drank another youd be dead
Old red eyes is back
His shoulders ache all over and his brain is sore
He pours a drink and listens to his body thaw

The State Of Me is a moving, witty, original and unforgettable debut novel
I was excited to receive this book yesterday. Amazon sent it, the postman delivered it to the door and my daughter delivered it to my bedroom.
The first page.... in the supermarket, could have been me. I am sure it will have been many of the thousands of sufferers of ME.
Today it lies beside me on the bed and I am filled with anticipation,waiting till my head is clear, waiting to start reading.

A disturbance on a body of matter in the form of a ridge or swell. Also a hand gesture to motion a greeting or indeed a period or spell of unusually hot or cold weather. Wave is everywhere, where is yours?
Taken in Gournes, Crete, this crashing wave thundered down to splash ( a big splash ) the unwary.
Lyrics from "Say Hello And Wave Goodbye" by David Gray
Take your hands off me, hey,
I don't belong to you, you see,
And take a look in my face, for the last time,
I never knew you, you never knew me,
Say hello goodbye,
Say hello and wave goodbye.

To cut in thin pieces or a portion of food
Lyrics from "How You See The World No 2" by Coldplay
They put the world in a tin can black market, contriband
And it hurt just a little bit, when they sliced and packaged it
In a long black trench coat two hands around the throat
Oh, you want to get it right sometimes
Theres so much to be scared of and not much to make sense of
How did the clowns ever get control, if you hear can you let me know
How can they invade it, when its so complicated ?
Oh, you just want to get it right sometimes.

A small arthropod animal with 6 legs and usually one or two pairs of wings
Lyrics from"Staring At The Sun" by U2
There's an insect in your ear
If you scratch it won't disappear.
It's gonna itch and burn and sting
Do you wanna see what the scratching brings!

To get extremely wet.
Question :- Why does the water NOT come out the hose when you press the trigger.

Question:- What happens when 15 mins later you finally have the answer sussed.

Lyrics from Honkey Tonk Woman by the Rolling Stones
I met a gin soaked bar-room queen in Memphis
She tried to take me upstairs for a ride
She had to heave me right across her shoulder
'cos I just can't seem to drink you off my mind
It's the honky tonk, honky tonky woman
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

All the rowboats in the paintings
They keep trying to row away
And the captains' worried faces
Stay contorted and staring at the waves
They'll keep hanging in their gold frames
For forever, forever and a day
All the rowboats in the oil paintings
They keep trying to row away, row away
Lyrivs from "All The Rowboats" by Regina Spektor

A little field mouse resting between nibbles
Lyrics from Paranoid Android by Radiohead
Please could you stop the noise,
I'm trying to get some rest
From all the unborn chicken voices in my head
What's there...? (I may be paranoid but not an android)
