  4. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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

  15. Perhaps we need a Working Lives Matter movement to draw attention to the hard working unsung heroes of industry who turn up daily to work to help to create Britain's wealth. 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.

Confused, you are obviously an intelligent person, but you need to put the books back on the shelf and start considering crap outside the box, I fell asleep reading your posts on why Warrington had more cases......".. Obs, get off the 'politicians want to open the economy for political reasons' crap.

  20. 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

  23. 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,

  24. 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

But it is going to happen so why worry about a remote possibility of catching a particular infection which may or may not kill you. World war, Britain bombed house destroyed people killed and maimed thousands homeless, the reaction "keep calm and carry on". terrorist attacks people killed.reaction "we can handle this no terrorist will scare us" virus infection that will give 90% of the infected flu like symptom for a week.reaction "BUY EVERY TOILET ROLL IN THE SHOP!

  35. 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.

  37. I suppose it all depends on which experts you listen too. pre-schooll children have a low infection rate. 5-12 year olds have a lot higher infection rate,comparable with adults but symptoms are said to be mild in comparison and 19-24 year olds have the highest infection rate. according to some "experts" but they do not say which particular variant has been detected. The problem that worries some is not that the children can catch the infection more readily, but who they then subsequently pass it onto once they are infected. "oh it's just a bit of a cold" and three weeks later g

  39. More special news from Yahoo I see. The story behind the story says: "Then we looked to see what is the daily positivity rate... And we saw that there was no difference between vaccinated and unvaccinated until day 14 post-vaccination. "But on day 14 post-vaccination, a drop of 33% in positivity was witnessed in the vaccinated group and not in the unvaccinated... this is really good news." However, UK scientists said in December that trial data had suggested it would be 89% effective after one dose. And it did after 21 days. I don't think this is a surprise no-one shou

  40. 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

  41. We’re probably the worst infected country at the moment so people from lessor infected countries are probably a lessor risk than someone travelling from Kent. It’s all down to people, but with 30% of the population classed as essential workers and excluded from the lockdown, with that many people moving around it’s bound to continue to spread the virus. As for the kids missing a few weeks of schooling, well it’s not exactly the end of the world that some make it out to be (IMO). I can’t remember much of what I was taught as a youngster and left school with only modest results but like m

  42. You are, of course, correct Bill. You may, for completeness, add that perpetual motion violates the Second Law of Thermodynamics and you Cannae change the laws of Physics as I once heard said somewhere ... Batteries use reversible reactions by their very nature whilst combustion of Hydrocarbons or plain Hydrogen are irreversible without supplying an even larger amount of energy. For that reason it is inconceivable that batteries could ever approach the energy density by volume of chemical energy stores. Development will have to be in producing better and more efficient motors and dri

  43. I’ve never been one to call for someone to lose their job, but for me, with the playing roster we have at our disposal, we have totally underperformed this year. When big games come along, like Salford in the Cup semis and last night, we just don’t perform. I’ve no idea why that is, but for me something must be wrong somewhere. I’ve thought for a while now that the team play as a bunch of individuals rather than as a cohesive unit, and Widdop and Austin just haven’t gelled. I think the time is right for a new coaching regime to be brought in, and we need to do it quickly to all

He is very versitile but in my opinion full back is where he's best, but with Ashton coming through so well I can possibly see him becoming a ball playing second rower next season in the mould if Sinfield....
