A thumb signal , usually described as a thumbs-up or thumbs-down , is a common hand gesture achieved by a closed fist held with the thumb extended upward or downward in approval or disapproval, respectively. These gestures have become metaphors in English: "The audience gave the movie the thumbs-up" means that the audience approved of the movie , regardless of whether the gesture was actually made. While the exact source of the thumb gesture is obscure, a number of origins have been proposed. Carleton S. Coon , having observed Barbary apes in Gibraltar using the gesture, hypothesised in the anthropological classic The Story of Man that it is a mutual celebration of having opposable thumbs. The Latin phrase pollice verso is used in the context of gladiatorial combat for a hand gesture used by Ancient Roman crowds to pass judgment on a defeated gladiator.

It's thumbs up from Chelford brothers for their postman during lockdown | Knutsford Guardian
The Royal Mail is asking people to give up a big thumbs-up to their postman to recognise the work they are doing to help keep the country running during the coronavirus pandemic. One of the images features a postbox, and Oliver and Thomas coloured in one each and left them either side of the front door for the postman to see. The boys also helped their mum to deliver cards to houses on a number of roads in the village detailing support on offer for residents who were vulnerable or self-isolating. The posters were a way of showing how grateful we are for the people who are still out at work. The Royal Mail website said: "Up and down the country people have been posting beautiful messages to thank our posties for the wonderful work they are doing to help keep the country running during this difficult time - especially by delivering letters and parcels to the vulnerable who are unable to leave their homes. Chelford brothers create thankyou posters for their postman.

Chemor looks like a sleepy town; that time has forgotten but this place is definitely worth a visit. It took us about fifteen minutes drive out of Ipoh town to get here. Upon arriving; we were quickly given a table and seated. The Dry Crab Curry was a bit spicy to my liking….
