  1. Happy birthday Dizzy

    Mmn now let's just think about that Gary... You were the one who started this topic on 15 August but then it took you until 13 Sept to post another reply. So where have YOU been for the past month....also bearing in mind this is Your forum 😂😏
  2. Shhhh....

    Growing increasingly concerned when one of his employees didn't turn up to work the boss decided to ring him at home. After all in all the years of his number 1 employee working there he had never been late for work or been off sick so clearly something wasn't right. He dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whispered, "Hello?"The boss asked, "Is your Daddy home?" "Yes", whispered the small voice. "May I talk with him?" he asked. To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispered, "No." Wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is your Mummy there?" "Yes", came the very quiet answer. "May I talk with her?" Again the small voice whispered, "No."Knowing that it was not likely that a young child would be left home alone the boss decided he would just leave a message with the person who should be there watching over the child. "Is there any one there besides you?" the boss asked the child."Yes" whispered the child, "a policeman." Wondering what the police would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked, "May I speak with the policeman?" "No, he's busy," whispered the child. "Busy doing what?" asked the boss. "Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman", came the whispered answer.Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter through the ear piece on the phone the boss asked, "What is that noise?" "A helicopter" answered the whispering voice. "What is going on there?" asked the boss, now alarmed.In an awed whispering voice the child answered, "The search team just landed the helicopter." Alarmed and now very concerned concerned the boss asked, "What are they searching for?" Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a muffled giggle: "Me!"

  4. Winter Hill Fire

    I often go up to Hill Cliffe on sunny day to look at the view which stretches for miles when it's a clear day. You can easily see Winter Hill from up there too...which is on fire Busy time for the fire service at the moment..... https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/gallery/pictures-winter-hill-fire-14843097
  5. Widow ?

    But why do you say parents have a responsibility to secure their kids rights by being married? You can be parents without being married so surely the 'parent' bit is of most importance and relevance rather than a bit of paper and a name change.

    Gawd I'd only just got it out of my head and now it's back again. Thanks for that Evils 🦈🙉

    Ha ha good one Asp
  10. Widow ?

    I'm not sure what you mean by post-mortem payments have been made to her as the news Ive seen simply says she will not get a 'Widowed Parent Allowance' despite not actually being married. My understanding of the Widows Payment allowance is that you can only get it it you have a child/children under 16 (or under 20 if they are still in education) and as such are still eligible for Child Benefit Payments and that your 'husband' had paid National Insurance etc The way I see it is that if she and her partner (as parents of their kids) had been together for 23 years then they were as good as married even though they didn't have that special little piece of paper called a marriage certificate. They had proved their commitment to each other and their kids by staying together for 23 years..which is more can be said for a lot of 'married' couples who never go the course and last that long. What about married couples who split up but never divorce...they would still be entitles to the Widowed Parent Allowance even though they are not together. What does rattle me is how Civil Partnerships or Same Sex Marriages are now classed as having the exact same rights as any married couple but cohabiting partners (male+female) living together and bringing up their children for many years together are still treated as being separate in the eyes of the law and as such have NO rights whatsoever ! Wrong that !!! Anyway don't get me started on that.....
  11. Now wash your hands -

    There was a TV programme on a few months back regarding foreign holiday and the * ratings we see when making a decision of where to book. For the life of me I can't remember what it was called or post a link but I think it might have been the TV show with Gloria Honiford? and the other two blond women. Anyway people were complaining about 5* holiday accomodation hotels abroad that they had booked but when arriving were finding squalid conditions and certainly not the 5* they had expected. Upshot of it all was here in the UK we do have a governing body who rate the * system over he regarding facilities, hygene, food etc etc ...but when it comes to holidays and hotels abroad the same ruled DON'T apply. They said most * ratings for other countries are rated by bodies in those countries themselves and their own levels of what they deem to be acceptable and those are the * ratings we then see. It was asked WHY there can't be an overall standards body covering all countries so that all had to comply to the same levels but the upshot was that it wasn't possible, couldn't be enforced and therefore wouldn't work. Makes a bit of a mockery of the travel and holiday star system as a whole though eh if you are travelling abroad....not that it will affect me as I never go on holiday
  12. Choosy migrants.

    PJ in reply to your latest reply to me......'whatever'!. I really can't be arsed replying to you any more in any detail and more specifically as it's becoming very tiresome. YAWN !! I'm off to listen to the last half of that song gain ....
  13. Observer and PJ

    That's given me an idea. We could do a Warrington Worldwide Xmas Pantomime... I could be the Wicked Witch or the Evil Step Mother

  15. Choosy migrants.

    OK PJ so are you saying that every time ANY of us post a topic or make any comment we ALL have to substantiate our words with source links to validate what we are saying? I've posted many 1000's of topics and comments over the years as have you and others and yes sometimes we have all posted links but mostly we haven't. I suppose we could though if we could be bothered but then what would it achieve other than giving other websites an extra 'google' type tick in the box for the posted back links? We all interpret what is reported in national and local news differently sometimes that's because of the way things are reported though as some are intentionally worded to cause unrest and debate and we all have our own views too. Just because you think you are right about something or I think I'm right about something..or any other person thinks they are right about somethings...DOESN'T MEAN WE ARE ALL RIGHT...OR INDEED ALL WRONG. But what matters is that things SHOULD be able to be discussed/debated in a grown up way. Twice now you have also mentioned 'better run forums' too...well if you don't like this one and think it's so badly run WHY DO YOU KEEP COMING ON IT and not stick to the 'better run ones?' Obviously I'm not trying to get rid of you but if you hate it so much why stick around and call it all the time? I feel very sorry for Gary who, as we all know, pays to keep this forum running with money from his own pocket every month just so us 'long timers' can all whinge on it. Maybe you will get your way one day and he will close it down...... As for you wanting me to retract the claim that you accused me of racism......non retractable I'm afraid as I explained myself more than once about how I felt....I agree that you didn't actually say directly that I was being racist but your comments and you way you kept on and on made it seem like AND MADE ME FEEL LIKE I WAS being racist...when I wasn't. I swore blind I wasn't going to reply on here again.....damn...OVER AND OUT !!
  16. Choosy migrants.

    Thanks Obs Not sure I like being called Ma'am though...sort of feeling very old and like a school mistress now ha ha
  17. Choosy migrants.

    FOR GOODNESS SAKE....... HOW ABOUT YOU BOTH AGREE TO IGNORE EACH OTHER AND STOP WINDING EACH OTHER UP! IT'S SO BLOODY BORING FOR THE REST OF US TO HAVE TO READ IT ALL AND THE CONSTANT BICKERING...SAYING THAT IF OTHERS ARE GETTING AS PEE'D OFF WITH IT AS I AM THEY HAVE PROBABLY STOPPED READING ANYWAY. SO MANY DECENT TOPICS STARTED (MOSTLY BY YOU OBS) THAT THE REST OF US HAVE ALSO TRIED TO COMMENT ON BUT THEY THEN FALL INTO A BATTLE OF WORDS AND NONSENSE BETWEEN JUST YOU TWO (PJ & OBS) HERE'S A PLAN...PJ HOW ABOUT YOU STOP STALKING OBS' EVERY WORD AND POST ...AND OBS HOW ABOUT YOU JUST DON'T RETALIATE? YES AIR YOUR OWN VIEWS AND DISCUSS LIKE GROWN UPS BUT PLEASE DON'T TURN EVERY TOPIC INTO WHAT ONLY CAN BE DESCRIBED AS A BLOODY PRE-SCHOOL TEMPER TANTRUM PLAYGROUND BATTLE.
  18. Observer and PJ

    Sadly I doubt it would work as even with a dedicated section or thread for just the two of them access would still be there for all the other topics too so any comment on any of those would presumably result in a counter attack. Of course I could always block the pair of them from all other forum sections by creating a new member group (which only contains them) and only giving them access to their own special area Very tempting
  19. BoJo !

    No I haven't ever witnesses anyone dressed in 'the manner' committing a crime etc and I never said I had done....I have never said their dress code should be banned either I merely pointed out that it freaks me out a little and I explained why too. Yes I agree that someone with a hoodie pulled down over their face blah blah blah would probably make me feel a tad uneasy too as they often do....but why shouldn't I say if something makes me feel uneasy if it does....it's who I am and how things make me feel. Anyway you are clearly on a mission to make us all feel bad for our views or feelings and are throwing in the 'racist' card but I'm NOT being racist...I'd feel the same if you walked the streets with your face and body fully covered so I had no idea who you were, if you were male or female, what you were carrying......I mean come on even you must wonder sometimes.
  20. Happy birthday Dizzy

    Thanks Stallard and Davy51 Sorry it took me so long to reply to you both..it's an age thing PS Davy...I sort of like the Dizarella...I might change my screen name to that...combination of Dizzy and Godzilla ???
  21. BoJo !

    ..I forgot to add that people in burka's along with the rest of the long loose flowing black attire that is also often worn with then does tend to freak me out a bit and make me feel uneasy especially if they are in groups. All you can see are two eyes...presumably female but might not be.... and you cant see their hands or what else they might be carrying. It's not just me though being silly as my other half finds them somewhat in-nerving too
  22. BoJo !

    Well said Asp and I agree 100%. I've just been playing catchup (at 1.30am yawn) and having just read through this entire topic I think I now need a padded and soundproof room too....but preferably NOT in the same one as Obs and PJ !!! Gawd......it's enough to drive a person insane
  23. Taxpayer milked again -

    A quick google search just showed that Eiginie has an estimated net worth of £3.6 million. Not bad for a 28 year old !! Can't find out as quick how much her fiance is worth and too tired to bother looking harder. Bit weird that the two of them are blood relatives though although somewhat distant through their great great grandparents lines. Keep it in the family eh ha ha...
  24. Taxpayer milked again -

    Good point Obs. I must admit I've never taken much notice of her or her parents...not intentionally but they never get to be in/on the news much so I forget they exist. A lot of normal brides and groom pay towards their own weddings these days with a little help from parents too so what does Euginie and her soon to be hubby do for a living? Can't see they will be hard up so maybe they could both contribute too especially as she's the one you say wants a 'show off' wedding. Maybe long term their wedding and vows would mean more to them if they'd had to work hard to save up and pay towards it all too.......
