  1. I reckon one winter spent working on a Scottish Island with a maintenance program of agriculture and self support,Kibbutz style, would have them queuing to go back to Europe
  2. Didn't the Australians once put all their illegals on an island near Papua New Guinea ? We have plenty of Scottish islands with nothing on them(Yet ???)
  3. Seriously; This must rate as one of the dafter ideas from government this year. Forget the wars in Syria/Yemen etc and malnutrition across swathes of Africa and Asia Lets concentrate our resources banning butties on trains 🥴
  4. Had mine in chemist on Saturday(more convenient than Latchford Medical) Pharmacist told me this first batch may be the last before Brexit date and with the vacine produced in France there may be delays,so look sharp Sid's before you miss out!
  5. Can I have the address of your Doc's 🤣🤣
  6. Always clean and plenty of routes plus mostly on time. I also have a app on my phone that tells me which stop I'm at and the next bus due called "UK bus checker" I can't complain anyway as I have a bus pass and certainly would be lost without our bus routes from Town for shopping to Hospitals/GP/Dentist etc. And Lymm Dam on warm summer days, Plus popping in The Church Green before my return 🍺 No complaints from me
  7. These demonstrators seem to have a lot of free time and money to travel the country. So they can't have a job Are they all very rich Or on Benefits ????
  8. I got mine which I have completed and returned so yes at least they are doing something , but no wonder! They could reasonably have expected 10,000 for a post Wembley play off match, Talking off play off games; Last nights Toulouse v Featherstone was a weekend game on a warm sunny day so a very poor turn out from our French supporters. And to play the final 6 days later on another continent defies belief !!!
  9. Since finishing work I enjoy wandering round town and window shopping. But these days Golden Square is really the main destination,I just got sick and tired of cyclist flying around on pavements oblivious to any safety/courtesy issues elsewhere and guess it's only time before someone is seriously injured. Also town is becoming smaller in area since three quarters of Bridge St is either derelict or a pub/takeaway/charity shop or hair/finger nail shops. Golden Square lost M&S and with it apart from Iceland the only good quality food and drink availability on offer. GS is well patrolled and is clean and safe.But I worry that without M&S plus BHS it will encourage shoppers to look further afield. The New Market is a chance for more varied shopping if it is fully occupied and well patrolled and clean. One suggestion for the new market would be the provision of a newsagent/post office which I feel would be a bonus not available in the current premises.
  10. Toronto draw crowd of 9,325, Warrington draw crowd of 5,625 This isn't a pop at my beloved Wire Wigan v Salford was also lower than Toronto. Toronto had included play off games with the season ticket so may that had a lot to do with it.?
  11. I'm Popeye the sailor man I live in an old tin can There's a hole in the middle Where I do a piddle I'm Popeye the sailor man
  12. Yes I remember many seasons when winning the cup alone would have been a magnificent achievement. But these days skys Grand Final seems to have taken precedence. Although last nights turnout of 5,500 was very poor, as I said in a previous post that wasn't a big surprise with it being on tv and all persons having to pay.
  13. They are only looking for a reaction. Ignore them and they are lost. A bit like a naughty child...
  14. We have as much freedom of speech today as Soviet Era East Europeans had.......... You never heard of them complaining ! Stop moaning !!
  15. Very true, and so it would never happen. But it was a nice thought for a fleeting moment 😉
  16. even simpler. 1st in league automatically goes to Old Trafford. 2nd v 3rd play home and away matches to qualify for the final.
  17. Brewery run couldn't .............. seems pretty fitting
  18. I have a feeling that having to pay will have the same effect it does on Challenge Cup games and a lot of empty seats on tv . Not good publicity for the game.
  19. What nobody told me last year when I bought my season ticket was that none of the play off games were included.(The previous few seasons Super 8 format games were always included) So I'm expected to pay for my own seat ! Sorry , but on principle I will watch it on sky and save around £60... ticket price/transport/refreshments. I know I'm not the only person who is of the same mind.
  20. I once refereed a friendly match some years ago now. And I tell you now ,I wouldn't have their jobs for a gold clock. They are not perfect;but just watch on sky all the antics the players of both sides get up to. Plus they have to keep track of tackle counts and remember all the new rule changes. Then put up with abuse from fans Plus be scrutinized by sky commentators who can watch incidents over and over in slow motion then give withering comments on the ref's errors. No thanks
  21. I only ever open emails whom I know are from my regular correspondents. The rest are deleted immediately. If it was something crucially important I'm sure they would know me and my other contact means ie, address/phone number. It seems to have worked so far.
  22. Brilliant pictures.. thank you😉
  23. Dripping on toast.. A veritable feast ! My Mum had a Saturday morning job and so Dad made breakfast ..always a doorstep of toast smothered in dripping to this day I remember the wonderful savoury feast. Not had it since I was 9 or 10 but still remember how scrummy it tasted. Then the door was opened and I was free to enjoy my Saturday wherever it took me and my pals.
