    Thanks Con, figured as much, but difficult for me to envisage any kind of government building in either Newton or Winwick ! Got to go now, Man united are about to sign their 177 th player for next season.

    Thanks guys. I have always put Woolston as place of birth on my passport applications. This time my good wife is insisting that Newton Winwick has to go on to match the cert. I see a screw up on the horizon !

    Ahh, should have realized ! Hope PJ doesn't reply until I get a sane answer - sorry Asp. His signature kills all topics !
  4. Just saw on news, Boris is odds on favorite.

    Not worth starting a new topic, so let me piggyback this on - calling Dizzy. I was born in the front bedroom of 81 Gig Lane , Woolston. Why does my birth certificate say : Born in Newton, Winwick ?

    If the other posters excuse me for a minute I'll make a few comments. San Antonio, great city, don't be too disappointed with the Alamo, it isn't in open prairie these days. You'll probably spend your time downtown on the river - hope you like mariachi music. Great food along the river. The Little Rhine Steakhouse (inconspicuous front door right next to the Hilton) has a tree covered terrace sloping down to the river, beautiful spot for romantic dinner after dark. Expensive, with wine and the best steak ever - probably $100 per person, reservations needed, ask for terrace. Austin, visit the capital building, its dome is as big as the Washington one. Plenty of late night clubs in the West End, great food. Surrounding area, the hill country, very pretty. Cow Town aka Fort Worth, lot of old charm, you obviously will visit Billy Bobs, biggest honkytonk in the US, get your boots and hat ready. Hot Springs, Arkansas, only been there once. Natchez Mississippi, very pretty historic town. Lots of antebellum homes and plantations to visit. You will love New Orleans, wide open city, almost impossible to commit a crime there - no laws! Obviously Bourbon St after dark is a hoot - no prudes allowed, go topless if you want to fit in, one big party, keep your hand on your wallet! . Plenty to see and do during the day. Jackson Sq is epicenter. If you use the trolleys, buy a day pass, only about $5 . Take a two hour river cruise on the paddle wheeler, Natchez, great jazz music on there. Bec and I will be there for a couple of days in September, it's only a three hour drive for us. Almost as humid as our area. Houston, get on the plane and out of there ! I'm probably not being fair, it's only a hundred miles from us, so we are there all the time for doctors visits and shopping, hate the traffic. Driving is easy outside of the cities and food is really cheap. We pay around $2.20 for a gallon of gas, but who knows if the damn Iranians keep sinking tankers !

    Way to go Bill. Slight pause, hope you didn't hear all of that screaming ! Had to have a big toe nail removed yesterday and my wife is doing the first redressing as I type. Apparently the doc used stretchable sticky tape and she had the make a dozen pulling unravels to get it off, hence twelve screams. Phew !! It's a throbbing now, I think I would have told the Gestapo all I knew in the first 30 seconds ! Plenty of piney woods and the Gulf of Mexico beaches, but the summer time is a sauna, so you won't be missing much except great people. Where do you have lined up ?

    Not a lot Obs, just a few homeless - most of 'em are in liberal San Francisco - they get their ass shot here.

    Just a bit of fun - factual though. Taken me fifty years to get to love it, but love it I do.

    Beautiful evening, it's eight oclock, the sun is going down and the heat is going out of the day - down to 97. Sitting on my patio, surrounded by the night sounds from the woods, with a glass of Black Jack and coke, sweating gently, Trump is President, could the world get any better? Damn, beautiful humming bird just missed my head and spilled half of my damn drink. Ah we'll, crap happens. Keeping my eye on that red wasp, worst bite in history, damn, just missed me and spilled the other half of my drink. Give me a minute to refresh and relax and to break up the fight between my cat and that f******* raccoon - ooh, that's going to mean a trip to the vets tomorrow! All's well again, but I wish I'd have gotten my gun when I mixed my drink, never mind, I'll get that sonabitch rattle snake tomorrow night.
  11. True Asp. The dossier, payed for by Hillary Clinton's campaign, was in fact a fictitious document written by a British ex-spy. The contents of which were used to obtain the writs, allowing the witch hunt to start.
  12. This is the indomitable Stallard reporting from the colonies. There is a potential catastrophic meltdown occurring with the Democratic Party and the liberal media. In fact one of their frontline proponents collapsed at an event today - Trump delusion syndrome is real ! The President has announced that he is declassifying all documents related to the warrants, that were illegally issued to allow the Obama FBI and CIA political appointees to use their agencies to spy on his campaign and to run the Russian collusion scam. Those responsible are running for cover issuing protests galore - funny, I thought they wanted transparency. Don't mess with Trump, you'll get your fingers burned. The opinion tonight amongst the sane talking heads, is that the upcoming revelations plus the Brexit fiasco, will mean the end for politicians in general. Given the outstanding standard of living, prosperity and peace under Trump, achieved with his arm tied behind his back and the idiots being dragged along by his legs, that from here on countries will be run by business men. Gary, how does a Parliamentary run look to you?
  13. Good one Sid, almost missed that. You're right, I was mocking the dumb, elitist snobs. Do we know any of those ?
  14. Just been reading about the great Manchester wine disaster. Made me think of other examples of elitist stupidity. In my opinion, after looking at old master paintings, Picasso and Lowry etc have got to be a hoax. Am I wrong? Maybe I'm just a Philistine.
  15. Sad day, I think that every man on the planet was in love with her at some time in their life. Veterans tell me that Doris singing Sentimental Journey, was always played over the PA system as they boarded the transport ships to England in 1942.
  16. Kinda like the golfer watching the funeral pass the course ...... I'm sure you can fill in the rest.
  17. If there is a problem, I guarantee, it won't be fixed by the government!
  18. And there, I thought that I was the only one using that tactic ! How long do you think it will take for his brilliant mind to realize that he's only talking to himself?
  19. Hope I don't PO too many people, but for a die hard United fan since 1948, this should be hard to say, but it's not. The scenes today after Liverpools fantastic win, with the crowd singing, were some of the best emotional moments in sport. Great !
  20. I think that the illegal witch hunt against Trump and the efforts of the British MP's regarding Brexit, conclusively proves that all politicians should join the lawyers on the first rocket ship to Mars. Good riddance, they're giving the sane people of the world a daily case of heartburn.
  21. We just had panic in the streets, it rained almost every day this Spring in SE Texas, or so it seemed. Every climate change nutcase in the US headed south to worship the proof of global warming (or whatever). Then they announced that we had had 18" less rainfall over the period than had ever been recorded. They all climbed into their cars and left. Good, we have enough home grown idiots without imports. Watching Gunfight at OK Corral. Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas seem an awful lot more charismatic than Gwyneth Paltrow !
  22. I'm glad he's in. Biden is a perpetual loser, I guess there will be a 'Best of Joe's gaffs' tape out pretty soon - it'll be a long one. He's run for Prez three times and lost, he voted For the unpopular Iraq war, then he voted Against the surge that won it, he was VP in the most corrupt administration ever, with the worst economy and international security record ever. I'm sure Trump will be too nice to point these things out though! Even Obama isn't endorsing him !
  23. Just two mins away from the Manchester derby and a thought occurred to me concerning the honesty of the press these days. If you can believe the media, United will be signing fifty new players this summer, everyone from Messi to Neymar ! Not that they don't need'em, but it's all lies, just like their political commentary. Obviously, the job of a reporter has become a role in a makebelieve sitcom, not a responsible occupation.
  24. Glad to help Asp. That's exactly why I posted it Obs, I wasn't bragging I just felt like someone should tell it like it is before the idiots turn out and start making intelligent comments like breaking windows and burning cars. I'm already expecting an inane response from you know who !
