  1. Lymm Historic Transport Day

    And here was me looking out for your Corsair. No wonder I missed you. The Granada looks fantastic.
  2. Britons abroad

    Absolutley brilliant. You coudn`t make it up could you.
  3. Call me an old cynic, but just as there is mention of Mr Smiths being saved, The building combusts into flames.
  4. I`ve just been passed at 2pm and there is an offical looking bod in High Vis just met up with a guy with a camera to take pictures.
  5. Warrington Earthquake...

    I remember one in 1977. I was at Warrington Tech on the 2nd or 3rd floor at the time. All the chairs and desks were shaking quite bad. Pretty scary at the time.
  6. Rip off Britain -

    Earlier this year my son came to buy his first car, Passed his test 2 years ago and been driving since but has had no insurance of his own. Anyway, the long and short of it was that when he applied for insurance on his own car, by adding my wife and I to the insurance it reduced the premium by around £400. Admittedly it was still expensive but when I had to ensure vehicles and wanted to add drivers the premium always went up not down. Ian
  7. Looking good

    Couldn`t agree more Gary. Good depth in the squad now. 2-1 win away at Ashton and 5-0 win at home against Colwyn Bay. Still going to be a difficult league to get out of this season though, but with those performances it instills confidence in our abilities. Ian
  8. Signage clutter and traffic lights

    Ha Ha, shows how observant I am. They`ve changed the 30mph stretch to 20mph (main route to motorway) and the sign 10 yards before the 50mph sign is the 20mph end, and changing to 30mph for 10 yards before it becomes 50mph. Ian
  9. Signage clutter and traffic lights

    I must admit I did ponder what the legal limit would be in the 10 yard distance, open limit? Just seems so daft to have a speed limit end sign just before the start of a new speed limit. Ian
  10. Signage clutter and traffic lights

    Just noticed a new sign has appeared on Cherry Lane coming out of Lymm to the Motorway advising 30mph limit ends. The sign is positioned just 10 yards before a 50mph speed limit sign. Now that`s what I call a waste. Perhaps we`re now following the way of the French advising the end of set speed limits prior to the new speed limits starting. Ian
  11. Well travelled..... but local

    Perhaps using the term `cheap labour` was miss leading or miss read, but if the labour costs of another Country are less than that of the UK then the labour rate is cheaper, irrespective of whether the UK labour rate is considered expensive.
  12. Well travelled..... but local

    Hi Diz, It`s only an office based at Daresbury, no manufacturing or warehousing. Like the majority of all the products we buy these days, there manufactured in Countries with cheap labour. Ian
  13. Five new signings

    Interesting signings, always rated Tom and Hicky, can`t really remember or place Doughty. Do we know how many of last seasons squad are still with us for the new season? Good job the World Cup is on so I can still get my fix of football waiting for the new season to start. Ian
  14. Wont make any difference at all. What are the agreed peak times of traffic considered as? So limit the amount of operations to 100/year, that still means approximately every 3 days a ship is permitted to go through during peak traffic times. Thankfully I dont have to use these routes on a daily commute.
  15. And the success continues, well done to all the youth team and their management. First round proper of the FA Youth Cup, congratulations on a fantastic achievement and long may your success continue. Ian
