  3. Can't beat a quick dip in the ea at Blackpool. thirty seconds and you didn't feel the cold, your body was too numb to feel anything. Especially when you were wearing those trunks made out of your dads old wool jumper. when you came out you dragged half the sea bed behind you like a trawling net.

  6. The wife and I were in M&S this morning and the food department was so packed that you could hardly move around. There was absolutely no chance to social distance, so we decided to give it a miss. At one time all shops were limiting how many they allowed in but now it looks like that ideas gone out of the window for Christmas. This wasn't just a crowd, it was a M&S crowd. Bill

  7. out of interest how far in front of the referee do you have to be to be offside at the play of the ball? Just curious because for st helens players it seems to be about five yards. For all other teams it seems to be about five inches.

Valentino Rossi, 40 yr old Moto Grand Prix rider, tested positive last week, feels great but is obeying quarantine and will be racing again this weekend. paul Pogba, mid twenties, tested positive, no health issues, was back playing at full speed after a week. 97% of all covid19 positives recover with only a slight inconvenience. 86 % of all people who have died all had multiple major pre existing major health issues.

  11. Although this is strictly not Warrington, a couple of items of interest. In the "Old River" at Statham, a section of the River Mersey left when the Ship Canal was cut through are three sunken concrete barges, which my late father maintained were placed there during WW2 with a view, should there be a threatened German invasion up the canal these barges would be towed into the centre of the waterway and sunk, effectively rendering the canal impassable. Below the high level bridge at Warburton (erroneously referred to as the Toll Bridge) are a couple of concrete "pads" remnants of the foun

On my news pages i just report the facts as best I can with limited resources, with some very useful assistance from one of our forum members which is much appreciated. Sadly on my travels I see plenty of people behaving without a care in the world for others around them - I am sorry if you feel these selfish people are labelled as #COVIDIDIOTS by myself and others (I didn't invent the word) on social media and that I harp on a little about the conspiracy theory brigade.

  13. Y'all need to understand, Trump is on a par with all the great industrialists and business greats of the past, like Vanderbilt, Carnegie and such. All of them had various peccadillos, but they all got the job done. Y'all should finally realize that politicians cannot run countries, a guy who was a dentist last week, or has slept his way through fifty years in Congress, like Biden, ain't going to hack it in economics or foreign policy today. Trump is running America like a successful business and it shows, he's a 'doer' not a wilting piece of crap like Obama. Take my word for it, Trump

Not the captains of industry with all their honours but the ordinary shop floor workers from all sections of the economy. Not the well paid sportspeople ,not the gentry.

  19. Correct, which is why we were told months ago not to wear gloves in work but rather to wash, wash, wash and sanitise hands frequently. As for wearing face masks or coverings, well many are abiding by the new rule but some aren't. Guess that will always be the case regardless of what rules are in place. Have to say wearing a face mask for 6-8 hours a day is bloody awful though and I now have an even bigger respect for the wonderful NHS staff who have always had to wear them. I don;t know how them manage to do it day in day out. So for all those anywhere who are moaning about having t

  22. BLM is a product of the age we live in. They are a bogus organization born simply out of the fact that, in these times, the crazier your proclamations the more you get on tv. They have no interest at all in any dialogue, or in thhe preservation of lives of any kind, they just want to March and chant " Kill the police, kill the police" and maybe loot a little on the side. They exist simply because they can, they are merely anarchists using skin color to avoid being run out of town on a rail. There were around fifty blacks killed by blacks in Chicago this weekend over a 48 hour period,

  23. Not the only ones: Piers (the mouth) Morgan and opposition politicians are after his scalp (but he's bald !); so much for constructive opposition. If Cummings has committed an offence he should be fined like anyone else, but no, they are after undermining the Gov at a time when we need some political cohesion. 😷😷

The adverts are our only form of revenue. Running this forum, even with adverts costs me personally over £750 a year, add to that the running costs of the main site (before any staffing costs) and you are talking another £9k a year!. Google gave an option to take over the placement of the adverts on this and the main site. Yes they are a bit of an inconvenience but they are not hurting anyone - all the same news content e.t.c is

Hi everyone, hope you are all ok, Regarding the adverts we are all now seeing which I too have had a rant about on here, I have snow spoken to Gary airing my gripes too but now I understand why he is doing it and I hope you will too after reading his. The upshot of it all is that Gary’s personal purse strings have been taking a battering for some time to keep the forum and the website alive for us all and now with the awful situation we have all found ourselves thrown into things have become even worse for Gary as it has for many businesses. With hardly and revenue coming in Gary has

The club say around eight per cent of their fanbase is aged 70 or above – the age group classed as vulnerable to Covid-19, with the Government advising them to remain indoors. As a result, The Wire say they will be making phone calls to all of their elderly members and vulnerable community groups to check on their wellbeing. They will also arrange for safe delivery of essential home products a

  34. FYI. There has been about a 100 virus cases in the US and 10 deaths. Not a lot out of 330,000,000. However, all of the deaths were very old people with existing severe medical conditions, in fact they were all in a single nursing home in Seattle. As the forum consists of young, virile, fit guys, y'all should be ok.

  36. I got free school meals at the age of 14 which I seem to remember was a bit embarrassing at the time, but my mother had died a year earlier, and my dad had to finish work due to health issues so there wasn’t a lot of money in our household. My paper round went into housekeeping rather than my pocket and even when I started work as an apprentice, I only earned the princely sum of £5 and five shillings. But as the saying goes what you’ve never had, you’ll never miss so the way it was didn’t seem too bad to me. I quickly had to learn to cook though and eventually became fully domesticated an

  37. But the 21 days is probably the minimum time that needs to be allowed between injections rather than a number that shouldn’t be deviated from. Under ideal conditions the idea would be to get the maximum possible level of protection as quickly as possible but current conditions are far from ideal, so it makes sense to vaccinate more now even if it’s slightly less effective. I’m no expert but if there was only enough vaccine around to give all the people one dose then that would be better than leaving half unvaccinated. Quite possibly, from what some are saying, we're going to be getting mo

Many thanks Latch it means a lot - the occasional thank you is greatly appreciated as people are always quick to criticise and it has been quite a lonely place the last five months on social media getting battered left right and centre for just trying my best to keep a free independent media service going for this town. I always try my best to keep a balanced view, while supporting those who support us. I always try to report on things to the best of my ability in a factual way.

  42. Certainly is Asp; and the excuses and mixed messages being thrown in by various factions , increases as each fresh event evolves. EG: On why Leicester has been hit with a surge in cases. Although there is still inadequate and a lack of cooperation with testing, testing is being blamed for exposing an increase in cases. Then the usual suspects put it down to poverty and crowded living conditions, rather than ignorance of the scientific advice. But the classic for me, was the BAME excuse, that ethnic groups weren't informed in their own language; excuse me, but we all live in the UK, where

A lot of teachers are in favour of staying at home on full pay and watching TV all day maintaining the lockdown until Michael Gove can absolutely and unequivocably guarantee that not one single teacher catches the virus. Meanwhile thousands of supermarket staff have hardly broken a stride to maintain their service to the population at large. Incidentally has anyone seen any reports of a spike in supermarket staff fatalities due to the virus?

So what's next - oh, she shouts at them, not exactly new in a command hierarchy either - so where's the "bullying" ? Having worked in rank structured environments, those of lower rank have to take and accept orders, even if they don't like the person giving the orders or the orders themselves.
