    jeanious ? !

    I've just tried to inflate a pair of jeans by tying the legs (it was hard to tie them in a knot) and then blowing into the waist end by mouth and it was exhausting and didn't work one little bit. The air must have just come straight out or I just wasn't blowing fast and hard enough. Good job I was only stood in my kitchen I hope the neighbours couldn't see me through the window ha ha.

    Now - then

    Charming lol 😂😂 Must admit though at least it would mean I still have a use after I've popped my clogs. I wonder if my whole body would have to be specially preserved or just my bum cheeks lol. Bit pointless you going to the trouble of parking your bike 'there' though as surely your stabilisers keep your bike upright anyway whenever you get off it 😏

    Now - then

    Well that must have been one of the strangest posts I've read on here in a long time Stallard I'm not even quite sure where to begin or what the topic is really about As for your opening sentence (Is that the main just of the thread?) .....I haven't invested in a burial plan. I've never even considered it to be honest. I do see all the adverts on the TV telling us to do it so we don't leave our loved ones to foot the bill when we pop our clogs but I just ignore. If I did invest in one I'd probably spend the rest of my life worrying that they would go bust and all the money I'd paid in would be lost and have been for nothing. Not to mention I don't know how long I will live for so say I start paying into one now monthly but live until I'm 95 then I will have paid into it every month for 40 years which I'd imagine is way more than the cost of paying to be buried/cremated. I suppose I could just set up a savings account in the bank and put a bit in every month and when my time comes I'm sure it will cover the cost of a cardboard coffin and a hole in the ground or better still a huge bonfire to lie me on top off up at Hill Cliffe.... great views from up there and people would see me burn for miles too....or a home made Viking style ship dropped in the Manchester Ship Canal opposite ours and I could sail off 'lit' into the sunset. Mmm that could be tricky so it might have to be my sons canoe instead ha ha. PJ...you could come and take some photos and 'launch' me

    In reply 1...OK so if it makes you feel better then 'maybe' I was 'unprofessional' in posting my comments to your question and what I said in reply to you on here publicly PJ. But then again YOU surely know how the forum works as you have been a member for long enough. For a few years now you have always badmouthed the forum in Public and I never edited your posts or delete them. Some of yours have even been reported when you do that but I have tended to review and then leave them as we are ALL entitled to an opinion and we all know what you are like lol. However I have edited or deleted a few of yours where you went against forum rules and were quite scathing to other members. Naught you lol. I have always felt sorry for Gary though when you badmouth the forum that HE pays for out of his own pocket for all our enjoyment but hey that's one for him to take up with you not me as I don't work for Gary and this is not my forum. If he has never pulled you for your scathing comments towards his forum then who am I too. I am just a volunteer Admin. Maybe if you have a quiet word he will let you be one too and then you can ban the rest of us who all seem to get on quite nicely despite our differing opinions on debates at times. As for my comments to you on here being now 'likely to deter genuine reporting of malicious posts' I very much doubt that ....... 2... It's a shame how some words historically derived from place or country names are now classed as being offensive. Yes I do understand how some are now not acceptable but I don't know or understand the reasoning behind them all. I guess before we know it being called 'white' will become offensive to some too as well. 3...Still no idea about the 'Y' word as I didn't have time to google. 5...Yes I can..when would you like me to start ? Addendum 6... Do you get bored easily and trawl the internet for things to moan about or people to rattle lol ?

    PJ.... 1.....I added a comment in the status comment box under under the actual report both times. I presumed wrongly that yot would have been able too see the status of it and my comment. Also yes they are usually treated as being confidential but seeing as though you posted asking on here I replied to you on here. 2.... The reason I didn't take action first time was because when I looked what the word meant it said it was 'shortened from the word Nippon which was the Japanese for Japan'. 3.....No I would never allow the N word for black people, I don't know which Y word for Jewish you mean but I will Google so if one ever does appear I know what I'm looking for. 4.....the sun's out and its quite a nice day even though a bit cold and breezy. Why don't you go for a stroll with your camera and take some nice local photos to upload 📸

    Reported posts.

    I reviewed it first time PJ and took no action as I didn't think it was offensive or violated any 'rules' so marked it as under review then complete. You then reported it again with a cut and paste of the forum rules so I have now edited the words you say you think were offensive and I've marked as reviewed and completed again. You could have just contacted me or Gary direct via forum private message (or even facebook) after your first complaint wasn't actioned and you weren't happy rather than posting a 'forum issue' here asking the question. We are always contactable and happy to help or discuss any issues or problems members may have. I suspect you knew all that already though 🤔

    Council tax going up nearly 3 per cent

    No I don't have a water meter Asp. On their website there is a facility where you enter details such as how many people in the house, how may wash loads you do a week, showers, baths blah blah and it then advises if you would benefit from having a water meter. Based on what I entered it said we'd pay more with a water meter which surprised me especially was we don't have baths. I didn't even mention my obsession with jet washing ha ha.

    Council tax going up nearly 3 per cent

    Makes no difference what people think as there's nowt any of us can do about it and we have to pay it as there is no 'shop around for cheaper quote elsewhere' option. Same with United Utilities Water Bills too... that's the price and you are stuck with it... Hard luck...

    problems accessing site sunday

    Yes Dizzy does do Sundays Gary but alas this weekend 10 hours each day in her real job...sorry I didn't know you couldn't cope without me . I will send you a copy of my work rota so you know when I'm fully available in my free time if you like lol All was working fine the times I did come on though....but slap on the wrist for me which I will accept cos I've actually only just noticed this 'forum problem' topic 👀

    Should she be "rescued"

    I'm not sure what her actual crimes were or are on paper PJ other than her fleeing to join ISIS and supporting their atrocities. Did you watch the quite lengthy interview of her that has been publicised over the past few days? She clearly shows no remorse for leaving to join ISIS nor did she show any emotion whatsoever regarding the beheading of people or the bombing of innocent people and children Manchester and other places other than to say she believed it was right...life for a life and all that. The only reason she wants to come back here is because she's now alone over there and has a baby who she 'wants a better life for'. Did she ever want to come back with her other two children she had over there who have sadly died . I say 'sadly' as it's not the kids faults and it is sad that because of HER they were born and died there in a land of evil. I have no problem with her little baby coming back to the UK but NO WAY SHOULD SHE EVER BE LET BACK IN....SHE IS CLEARLY STILL OF THE MINDSET THAT WHAT TERRORISTS DO IS OK.

    White Goods Removal

    Not that Range Asp, the one I was talking about was just off Manchester Road opposite the cemetery gates. Milky is correct though as it did close longer ago than I thought but certainly not last century as the last thing I bought from there was my washer so maybe a year or two ago. I was thinking I'd bought my dad's freezer from there last summer but it was from the other similar shop just round the corner from it on marsh house Lane. Silly me.

    A breath of fresh air ?

    I'd love to have a horse and cart to travel around in but alas not living in a rural village (well it was once) I have nowhere to keep my horsey and cart so alas I will just have to keep my petrol fuel propelled car and Mr Dizzy will have to keep his gas guzzler Diesel as he doesn't like horses anyway. I wouldn't really want an electric car as surely long term there is more to go wrong and they cost more to fix. Maybe I'm wrong though.... I'm happy to be corrected and converted..... I think it's nice that kids are taking an interest in their future and that of our planet though

    White Goods Removal

    I didn't know that the council now charged to removed white goods either Milky. Yes I knew they had always charged for sofas and other household bulky goods but fridges, freezers, washing machines (ie white goods even if they were not actually white) were always taken at no charge. Have to admit though that I've never used the service (either paid for or not) as when I did ring last year they said I had to book a specific day for collection and their first available slot was almost 3 weeks away plus they said I also leave my item covered from the elements so it didn't get wet or they wouldn't take it and also had to be put on our drive with full access to the collection team and not left anywhere else .....which is not much use to anyone like me who doesn't have a blummin drive is it lol. It was ok though cos we managed to cut it all up with a saw, axe and metal grinder and deposited it at the local tip with a few trips in a big 4x4. I was quite therapeutic battling to chop it up to be honest ha ha. As for white goods though we took my dads small under counter fridge and freezer to Gateworth Tip in the car but when we bought our new washer, oven etc from the shop that used to be off Manchester Road (was it called Range?) they took the old broken ones away when they delivered the new one for free. I think a lot of places will actually take your old one away for recycling the same day they deliver a new one now but I could be wrong.

    Insulin ?

    So more scare tactics to put fear and mass panic into peoples minds and yes a ploy to either make us (the UK people) think 'Shite maybe we'd best not leave after all then'. Probably a ploy to put fear into all other countries who may be quietly thinking that they may leave too. Such a large proportion of people here and around the world are diabetic and NEED insulin so no wonder they are trying this tactic to keep us all REMAIN. The more scare stories I see the more determined I am that we should LEAVE and put 2 fingers up to the lot of them. YES WE WILL ALL BE OK...IF WE CAN SURVIVE 2 ATROCIOUS WORLD WARS AND THE REST WE CAN BLOODY SURVIVE BREXIT !
  20. Hiya Eddie and sorry for my slow reply as I've only just seen your post on here as I've been AWOL for a few days. I was the one who reset your Password for you the other day after your contacted Gary. Seems you have it sorted now though and YES you do have to log in using your Display Name not your Email Address. I tend to never bother logging out of the Forum regardless of how I am accessing it so whenever I come on either via my desktop pc, tablet of mobile phone it's just there. I've been a member for well over 10 years and leaving it logged in has never caused me a problem. I suppose the only downside of me not logging out is that I do sometimes worry that my son will come on my desktop pc etc and post random things on the forum in my name. He's big enough for me to thump though if he ever does ha ha .

    Beaumont school

    Could have been allotment areas for growing veg and stuff if the photo was was taken during or after the war years Davy. Stockton Heath Primary School had allotments just outside it's perimeter area on the West Avenue side. Saying that they also had air raid shelters on the same side too so maybe that's another possibility for the patches you mention at Beamont.

    Child suicides

    Alas the online word is becoming the norm to youngsters these days and to us 'oldies' too Bill. I've seen kids not even into their teen years yet with mobile phones and internet access and of course they are online on computers or games consoles at home too. We used to limit our lad when he was young to time online and he didn't have a mobile phone with internet as it was just for phone calls and capped too. If he wanted to go on the internet he had to use our home desktop computer and that was downstairs not up in his bedroom so although we weren't looking over his shoulder it was always clear to us what the was doing or at least he though it was. That was not intentional it was just the way it was. Times change though and I guess it's up to us parents or grandparent to hopefully lay the foundations and to let our kids or grand kids know what is right what is wrong but more importantly THAT WE AS PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS OR FRIENDS ARE ALWAYS HERE FOR THEM AND IF THEY DN'T FEEL THEY CAN TALK TO FAMILY OR FRIENDS THERE ARE MANY ORGANISATIONS THEY CAN CONTACT IN COMPLETE CONFIDENTIALITY if they feel life is getting them down or they feel they need need help. Easier said than done to make them realise that though at times but hopefully they will Sad thing is I'm sure the vast majority of parents do that and say the same to their kids but still the youngsters take their own lives as do many others. It's so sad and I really don't know what the answer is other that to reiterate the words "it's ok not to be ok...ask for help it IS there". #itsoknottobeok

    WW News

    When the forum was upgraded last time we lost the link facility at the top of the page as it reverted to a standard skin (ie layout) rather than a customised one. Previous upgrades and initial workings used to be carried out by Gary's news website web designers who did used to do the forum upgrades and clever stuff too (at a cost). Then Invision (the forum provider) created a way that us admins could upgrade the forum and be responsible for it all for free so we do it ourselves now. Unfortunately that means that we can't create and upload unique 'skins' for it to all sit upon. I did ask Invision how we could link to the news pages again but they said it was only possible to upload an image not a back link like we had before unless we created our own custom 'skin' again which is not as straight forward as it sounds. I was certainly wasn't trying as I could have wiped the whole forum out and lost the lot.....PJ would have liked that though lol. Just one of those things I'm afraid unless you all want to club together to pay for it to be done by the Pro's again
