yes good old innocent slapstick comedy, no malice, no innuendo, no vulgarity... RIP Barry Chuckle
I went to see Billy Joel at Old Trafford a few weeks back... absolutely fantastic, am aiming to go see him at Madison Square Garden in the next 12 months
whilst i am on here tapping away on my Acer Aspire laptop which is i guess 6 or 7 years old now... i still have my Dell desk top tower with 3.5" disk drive option which i bought back in 1999 hence my user name as its when i first truly went on line... and its still works, it may be relatively slow compared to a modern computer, tablet or even mobile phone, but it works!
Thats good personal news for you and your family...
I partly admire The Trump in that he is openly honest about putting his country American first, a few of our leaders could do with a backbone... whether he does it the right way only history will judge in the end... his personal life is more likely a sham of adultery, and excess brought on by a bottomless pocket of money, knowing he can lie and pay his way out of any trouble... however i am sure that some have targetted him for exactly that, to get pay outs that set them up for life?
Trump is no politician, he is a bully boy business man..
He is clever man, and not to be underestimated, like some other 20th century historic world leaders before him, by feeding on the fear of the poorly educated, the easily manipulated, the threats of other nations, mass uneployment, immigration, managing the press and fake news etc... i hope he doesnt make their mistakes as they ended with millions of deaths.
As for you Americans we dont judge you on one man... i have good friends in Kansas, friends who served a liftime in public office military and civil...
i suspect we've had our twenty minutes of believing... this world cup!
Is there a wedding... it FA Cup Final day!
Laurel... i can't hear yanny at all, is it because i hear a real word not just a made up word?
can count me in on one of these on release i love the simplicity of oldskool games
A good spot... ordered a new car for a spare, i have a new phone option in a month or two so seems a good time to get a new card
The nation is a Heinz 57... if we were to evict all those with decendants from overseas, i reckon there would be less that half a dozen people left!
If its a flat... and a lease, are the remedial works covered by the freeholder?
Flats above shops can have all sorts of issues, depending on the establishment, insurance etc
As you are in Ayrshire i could be talking rubbish as i know the housing system above Hadrians Wall is different!
I have to say i dont watch anything that the 'two prats' present... i honestly cannot stand either of them, and i physically turn it over or leave the room.
Is it news worthy that he has had a 'collision' whilst allegedly over the prescribed limit of alcohol to drive. No he is just one of hundreds every day 'drink and drugs'... it's only in the media because of who he is... but lets move on, hope if he was over the limit he gets a ban, but only in line with what others get.
I cannot condone any drink driving, he made the choice, but he should not be punished anymore than the law allows because of him fame... thankfully he has not killed anyone.
If he really is remorseful perhaps he should make some significant effort in educating others not to do the same thing, as he is a role model, or donate significant sum from his personal fortune to charities that halp those living with the after effects of drink drivers.

best you turn off your light bulbs and internet Bandi... as where do you think the electricity comes from to run these... fossil fuels, nuclear fuels... yes there are so called greener cleaner fuels such as wind/solar or hydro, but oh yes, think of all the manufacturing that goes into constructing the factories, and manufacturing the products to produce these... electric cars, green my @r$e...
use less, waste less, and control the birth rate on the planet, we may just all live a little longer!
just my humble opinion...
not forgetting that Wikepedia can be updated by any numpty to change history!
not forgetting Datsun being rebranded Nissan in 1986
Iron Sky... i loved that film, much underated, and proves it doesnt need a multimillion pound/dollar budget, to make a decent film!
Went to watch The Darkest Hour yesterday... have to say i really really enjoyed it, very powerful portrayal of Churchill, faults and all.
Not sure how accurate the film is to the true events, but i suspect fairly accurate, and how close we were to disaster, capiltulating to Axis powers.
Well worth the Oscar... i can see a potential sequel on the horizon!
Well thats Arsenal hoping for Europa League place then!
done exactly the same, laptop and phone... front room is the likely office tomorrow!
i saw two flakes on the way home... off to Tesco in a minute to buy 20 pints off milk, 40 loaves of bread, and several cases of baked Beans in case a 3rd snowflake is spotted?
Err... Bandi your geographical knowledge of the West Country is somewhat flawed, the Wurzels are from Somerset!
If you ever venture to Cornwall, watch you don't go too far, as if you get to Land's End, as the world is flat you may fall off!
Ella, i wouldn't worry about what others think, i have visited many places around the world, New York i found to be busy, exciting, and most of the service industry staff trying to be over polite... (we did visit Brooklyn briefly as i wanted to cross the bridge), would i go back, definitely... as Sinatra said its so good they named it twice!
Las Vegas... well its not a real place, its all about 'show time' great to visit, but great to leave
Boston i loved... the people were just themselves, completely genuine, a relaxing a place.
Kansas, i have been fortunate to have served at Ft Leavenworth (not the Pen!) and have to say i absolutely loved the area, drove all over the place... and if i was 20 years younger without kids, would be emigrating tomorrow.

i loved Stargate... until Atlantis!
with nothing of any interest on terrestrial tv again last night, delved in to Netflix, a title was recommended to me from my previous viewing history...
I had not heard of this 2015 film before,
Eye in the Sky, starrring Helen Mirren, and Alan Rickman (must have been one of his last films). Essentially its a UK/US military mission to capture/emlininate El-Shibab Terrorists in Kenya, a friendly country.
Some interesting turns in the storyline, and really makes you focus on the politcial and moral dilemma's of those with the power of life and death over combatants, and civilian non-combatants.
Having taken the 'Queens Shilling' for a number of years and deployed overseas, this is movie that really brings a lot of things home.
If you haven't seen it, definitely worth a watch.
been telling people for years that they give away too much information about themselves...
ie... ooh Mr FaceAche, or Tw4tter... look at my lovely house, and all my expensive things... oh yes i am now at the airport and going away for two weeks... or follow me on Strava (start point my front door, finish at my door) or look i always go out for run cycle ride every saturday at 10am for two hours
Now come and burgle my house!
