"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

    Sitting atop the bin I used the flashbulb and was able to see for a mile.

    I had to walk a mile to find a bin to dispose this used flashbulb.

    The nearest bin was a mile away and it was dark when I reached it but my flashbulb came to the rescue and I was still able to take a photograph of it.

    I used a flashbulb to take a picture of the bin which was a mile away.

    I had a feeling that the disposal bin was a mile away while I was carrying dangerously sharp pieces of a flashbulb.

    Was it as far as a mile to find that bin to dispose of your flashbulb @komi? (Am I cheating?)

    The flashbulb could be seen for miles, so he decided to bin it before it got them all into deep trouble.

    They were fed up of people dropping litter, so they put a flashbulb on top of the bin so that people could easily find it from over a mile away.

    The flashbulbs were scattered all over the place after the lorry spilled its load, the bins rolling down the road emptying their contents for miles.

    Don't bin that flashbulb, it's miles better than any of the others.

    He might have thrown away the flashbulb right away but instead, he walked miles to find a bin to dispose of it.

    He could have thrown the flashbulb away immediately, but instead, he walked miles to find a bin to dispose of it in properly.

    (Just changed it to remove the second "away".)

    Everyday, when I cacth the flashbulb's eye which waits on the counter to be installed, I remember the words of my wife, saying; "Don't throw that bin away, you may require that for something. Hope you won't ride miles for something you dumped."

    I threw the flashbulb in the bin, but the bin was a mile away from me. No it's not a lie, I'm strong.
  • spawnintegrityspawnintegrity Posts: 78 ✭✭
    @helvio being strong isn't enough to throw a flashbulb in a bin, which is a mile away from you, you should be accurate and precise too.

    Hi @spawnintegrity! How are you? Where are you from?

    I forget to comment, I'm very lucky. lol

    There was a time that everything I needed to do for the flashbulb to fall in the bin a mile away from me was sneeze!

    When the flashbulb went off in his mind to bin the whole project, his cries for joy could be heard from over a mile away.
  • spawnintegrityspawnintegrity Posts: 78 ✭✭
    Hi @helvio, I'm good. Hope you're well too. I'm from a country whose people have just started to prefer led bulbs in lieu of flashbulbs but continue dumping organic waste to inorganic recycle bins and use kilometre instead of mile.

    Helvio failed to throw the flashbulb a mile away, but in the end it was only good for the bin.

    I can swear that I hit the bin, Lynne did you were more close than a mile to see that clearly?

    ------------------------

    I swear that I hit the bin, Lynne you must have been closer than a mile away to be able to see that clearly.

    I could have sworn that I hit the bin. Lynne were you close enough to see it that clearly?

    Helvio lost his flashbulb that he meant to get in the bin, but from a mile away, he missed!
  • spawnintegrityspawnintegrity Posts: 78 ✭✭
    Who dared to beat @helvio at flashbulb throwing challenge, missed the bin by a mile. :D
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    Thank you Lynne, your correction was great. :)
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 29,783 mod
    Searching for a mile around his home, he eventually found the fkashbulb in the bread bin.
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 29,783 mod
    Flashbulb that is. Sorry, my fingers are a bit clumsy!

    Let's get things more fantastic by saying " As a first in history @helvio hot-blowed a flashbulb that lay down a mile long yet @mheredge cause a pile of bins to topple over it."
