  1. Most popular name ?

    Was it the Billing Department Bill?
  2. Grid lock -

    It might make Penketh Road quieter though
  3. Bomb proof material

    Not at all Dizzy, everyone is entitled to an opinion.
  4. Grid lock -

    I don't know, these inconsiderate people having accidents and delaying Obs like that!
  5. Cockhedge Foot Bridge

    There are light controlled crossings outside the Looking Glass and by the bus station too.
  6. Will Fat Boy get his nukes ?

    From his behaviour this far he doesn't want nuclear weapons as a deterrence, more as a threat.
  7. Grid lock -

    Were you going somewhere important Obs?
  8. Murphy's other 15 laws

    1. Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak. 2. A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well. 3. He who laughs last, thinks slowest. 4. A day without sunshine is like, well, night. 5. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine. 6. Those who live by the sword get shot by those who don't. 7. Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool. 8. The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong. 9. It is said that if you line up all the cars in the world end-to-end someone from Warrington would be stupid enough to try to pass them. 10. If the shoe fits, get another one just like it. 11. The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first. 12. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer. 13. Flashlight: A case for holding dead batteries. 14 . God gave you toes as a device for finding furniture in the dark. 15. When you go into court, you are putting yourself in the hands of twelve people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.
  9. Cockhedge Foot Bridge

    I haven't used it for a couple of years now because the bridge itself looks hazardous and in need of a full overhaul!
  10. Bomb proof material

    Sorry that you look at it like that Dizzy, but if you don't laugh in the face of adversity the scum have won.
  11. Bomb proof material

    It would appear that whatever material Lidl's bags for life are made from, it is bomb and fire-proof!
  12. For sale

    I'm not sure what the rules for offering items for sale on the forum are, but if it is permitted there is this:
  13. A database of Warrington pubs gives the date of 1825 for the Sloop Inn, making it nearly 200 years old. I walk past it frequently but, for some reason, I've never actually been in. I might pay a visit, strictly for research purposes you understand
  14. MPs walking the tightrope -

    You have to take a very long look into the mists of history to find when the Labour Party ever represented the interests of the working man. The government has taken the only logical step in taking all EU legislation and renaming it UK legislation, which can now be adapted to our needs as a nation independent of the EU without having to refer to the Brussels beureaucrats.
  15. The red route is the one I voted for, but walking through Sankey Bridges I note that there is opposition to any Western link road at all. The story below the map mentions the Sloop Inn as being 100 years old, although I think it is actually nearer to 150 years old. But hey, when has Warrington ever let a bit of history stand in the way of progress and the motor car (which will be completely banned before this road ever gets built the way things are going!)
