  1. they were great live,very odd stage prescence. time to dust off 'gut feeling'----
  2. viewers voted the scene of Del falling through bar-hatch as the funniest in the entire series,but definately made by Trigger's reaction.....
  3. i drooled over her during her hey-day...
  4. one of the greats in his era...... along with Pele he would have been seen as a Messi or Ronaldo of his Day.
  5. not my era,but the brothers were #1 in the UK charts with Cathy's Clown on the day i was born. but i am a lover of their music......
  6. i've heard similar stories like this over the 30 odd years i spent working in the NHS. all rumour of course,but i know a friend of mine left some kind of memento on certain patients,i watched her do it once. nothing nasty/unpleasant/disfiguring or disgusting of course,in fact nothing to be seen to the naked eye. but would have caused much anguish to the patient i imagine if they had known.
  7. you may have hated the 'ginger prick'.but paddy was talking about his admiration for a fine player.
  8. a bit late,but one for the Brits.........DAVID COLEMAN........

    a year since i last had a drink...... to be honest not a problem really,2 occasions when i thought i wanted a drink but looking back that was all it was,a thought. i did'nt really want one,just a reaction from the old days and the thought easily discarded. in the summer i was asked to submit an article to a Government Dept's Quarterly newsletter,it was short-listed,and then chosen to be published for the world to see..... quite exciting to see my words,photo's and name in print,nothing like that has ever happened to me before. but an anti-climax now. feeling a bit flat as i have nothing to really look forward to for a while. a year is exciting but another year is a long way off. but specialised trainng in a couple of things coming up in the new-year which will enhance my C.V. in the field of my choice.. juggling working with 5 different organizations at the moment ,but enjoying life to the full at the moment. but to the rest of you out there,drinkers and non-drinkers...
  11. totally agree,some good quieter places to be found. only problem is many tourists on a night out cannot be bothered to travel to other beaches by taxi,tuk-tuk or bus. and if you hire your own transport then you might be at risk from other factors. but the good news for people like me is that the small,quiet bars away from the main tourist areas are more intimate and such fun.
  12. quite an interesting article for me personally after overcoming my past alcohol problems,but knowing that in the future i could easily slip back into those ways,but the wording of some of the questions might confuse some people. i'm now working full-time with people who have alcohol and and other drugs problems who want help to stop (and alcohol is classed as a drug). all of them i would put in the highly severe category when they first come in. i see a lot of progress in many if not most,but of course they might have a slip every now and then. but the support among them is a great help. 'Mind you, if you do get all the answers wrong, they'll wheel out the "He's in denial" ambulance cart' this is a good point as some people are in denial because they think some of the questions are not relevant to them as they don't think some of the questions mean you have any sort of problem. and not forgetting most of the questions can easily apply to all types of other drugs which you can inject,swallow or inhale.
  13. i must admit i forgot,but Saturdays are a no-go for me really. but i did'nt waste my time,i spent the day shagging a rather attractive(in my eyes anyway)grandmother. she was hot.......
  14. Today I read that another blonde girl, 7, has been removed from a Dublin Roma familyhttp://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-todays news 2473054/Irish-girl-seven-returned-Roma-family-DNA-tests-prove-IS-daughter.html
  15. happens in the UK. visitor's come for a holiday and suddenly 'discover' they have a serious illness and are given all the treatment free-of-charge. pregnancy is also a good one,have their baby here and go home with a few new 'rights' and of course some don't even go home.
  16. tried and tested by me. i always found any carbonated drink cleared my head and any nausea i had. obviously did'nt do anything for any alcohol still running around the body,but boy did it clear the head....
  17. i see they are now killing people for giving the jabs to help eradicate Polio.
  18. i will finally to all you BM's who moan about the Taxi's on Phuket..... i've never had a problem as i've never used them,but reading the story in the Phuket Gazette i saw they used the words 'Taxi Mafia' in the headline. if it's good enough for the paper to publish that then who am i to disagree?.

    Chicken Nuggets

    i work with someone who seems to have made it his life's mission to 'educate' others that McDonald's serve nothing that is like 'real meat'. he really does get on his high-horse at times but every other fast-food chain sells perfectly good products and they are ok to eat.... and any sort of meat bought in an up-scale chain of stores are all 100% meat and really good to eat. i do tend to when he gets going and walk away as i'm so bored with his ranting. but it is fun to turn up sometimes munching on a McD's i have just bought and just see his reaction and funnily enough say zilch to me....
  20. no can do.Fri would have been ok,but Sat a no-no i'm afraid.
  21. went to the England Women v Turkey women game tonight,a WC qualifier. played at Fratton Park (ground of the once mighty Portsmouth F.C.) and very entertaining it was. i follow the English Women's football more then the overpaid prima-donnas who masquerade as macho males. the Turks are a lot lower in the rankings then the English and it was evident,but you still have to beat whoever is put in front of you and the game was effectively over as England raced to a 2-0 lead in the first 3 Minutes or so. i really enjoyed the game and a lot of passion and skill shown throughout the match,but also in a very sporting manner. no cynical fouls,no players rolling around in feigned agony and every little foul was followed by an apology and a handshake and best of all no cards shown. i was a regular at the ground in the late 70's/early 80's and much changed. i really missed the moat around the pitch which frequently had players falling into it which always resulted in loud cheers in the old days. the Turks were completely outclassed but did manage to hit the bar with a fantastic strike from distance and their goalie(who was tiny)pulled off a fantastic save towards the end. game finally ended 8-0 to England(it should have been double figures)and their was a nice touch at the end when the England centre-forward consoled the Turkish goalie who was in tears at conceding so many goals. but to be fair most of the goals were too good for her to have any chance with,she was not helped by the awful defending in front of her. a crowd of 6,293 which was very impressive and it was so good to see so many children(mainly girls)at the game making a hell of a noise. in my part of the UK there is a long history of young girls playing the game and such a thrill for them to see their heroines in the flesh. the only bad point were the bloody official English band making such a racket with their trumpets and drums which at times was way over the top. and some of the crowd around me making stupid stereo-typical remarks about the Turks. nothing nasty or offensive,just stupid comments that went on all game and soon became boring. and of course it was the adults who were making the comments and thinking they were being original and funny. but good the game was a 7pm K.O. which allowed the kids to get home early before school in the morning and free entry for under 16's. an enjoyable evening watching the sport being played the way it should be.
  22. well played City,best team in all departments and they should have scored a few more really. the 2nd goal just on H/T was the killer. Utd too pedestrian all game and still lack that cutting edge once they get near the goal. took 66 mins for Joe Hart to make a save...... why oh why was Young on the pitch for so long?,we needed goals and should have had the likes of Hernandez and Kagawa on the pitch. but once again,hats off to City,but as you say,too early to get excited about the League. will be interesting to see how Moyes feels about the game against Liverpool mid-week?. will he play the reserves or will he go for it in a big way?.
  23. Hi CS,thanks for your views about a place i have never visited. i know Phuket is my playground but SpiceMan came out with some good points about the place. yes it can be overpriced but why go into a place where you know what the prices are?,i'm in a position where i know where to go and pay sensible prices for anything i need. yes the place is full of LB's,but there are soi's dedicated to LB bars and they are pretty obvious so no need to enter them. i do spend time in them because i'm normally with gals who have friends working in them and i don't get any hassle as they know i'm straight and i do go back sometimes on my own and have fun as i feel safe from any problems. i agree with your views on certain nationalities popping up here and there but so many of the bars are themed towards the people you say you get on with my regular bar over the years is aimed at the Aussie's,but absolutely no connection to that part of the world. hassle-free with the girls as they are not bar-fineable during their shift,but arrangements have been known to be made out of their work hours. and they are very good at sorting out any trouble that might occur. i've got boring as i've got older and tend to stick to 3/4 bars and 1 go-go that i've frequented for many years,but do have the odd visit to somewhere new where my friends have friends working. because of my past visits i know where to go and where not to go and yes i have had the odd bit of trouble over the years but that is mainly down to my behaviour. i'm not sure about the claims of travel being so expensive,never encountered that,but then again i tend to walk most places or have the free use of a motorbike(and driver)if needed. i only pay 300bt from the airport to my hotel which i consider very cheap compared compared to where i live. i don't know what sort of things are available for day-trips around Pattaya but Phuket has some good trips and the surrounding area is beautiful. i still go on a certain day-out every visit and sometimes twice because i like that particular trip. as i know nothing about Pattaya,i don't doubt there are many things to do around the area and there are many BM's out there who have the same feeling about the place that i do about Phuket. i know i should experience Pattaya,but i'm boring these days and like what i know,i just know i would be like a fish out of water if i went to Pattaya. but like anywhere in the world both Pattaya and Phuket have their good and bad points.
  24. i'm up for that.as long as it's a nice warm meeting place. VI seems to have landed on his feet so to speak,the last time i saw him he was on crutches.
  25. but thinking about it,must be some truth in all this. my ancestors came to the UK from France and Italy many moons ago. my surname is of Italian origins,probably why i'm the first to run away from a fight.
