  1. Extract from Tony Blair's book! 'I had regularly started jogging out of Downing Street . On each run I happened to jog past a hooker (prostitute) standing on the same street corner, day after day. With some apprehension I would brace myself as I approached her for what was most certainly to follow. "Fifty Pounds!" she would shout from the kerb. "No way, 50 pence!" I fired back. This ritual between myself and the hooker continued for days. I'd run by and she'd yell, "Fifty Pounds!" And I'd yell back "50 pence!" One day, however, my wife Cherie decide

  2. I was naked when I met the postman at the front door this morning. I don't know what surprised him most, that I was naked, or that I knew where he lived. I've been told that a good way of letting go of your anger towards other people is to write letters to those you hate and then burn them. I've done that, but do I have to keep the letters? After finding 5 Mars, 3 Snickers, a Galaxy and a Twix in this Celebrations box, I'm starting to think I'm not cut out to be a Bounty hunter. Boss: "This is the third time you have been late for work this week. You know what this means, don't

  8. BF, You are epexegete, amazingly, you are a perpetrator with most obsessive explanations and definitely with an infant attitude. Lets just say you are very smart and have an eccentric character flaw that portrays you as juvenile. I bet you can name the 16 nations whose borders are common with ENGLAND. I have a mild criticism – when you speak to AN members as if we are stupid or not important, your showing an insulting attitude of people because you think that you are better, smarter, or more important than all other people is not welcome. For the most part we are all exper

Only in that photograph Chesters, the guy in the picture is Law Enforcement, the Ghost had been terrorising locals fishing a large lake near a old dilapidated stately home until it was lured out by ‘bona fide’ Paranormal Investigators Velma, Fred, Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo. In the next photo they pull the head off and reveal it to be the short arsed Butler in disguise.

  17. Hi Ian, My daughter works in a large hospital in Leeds, and has a different view of things than your friends. She usually phones us when she finishes work, last night it was 7-15, she started at 8 in the morning. She rings us for a few reasons, one to check up on me and her mum, and as a bit of stress relief. She can have a bit of a rant to let off a bit of steam to us. She knows we will listen, and can sometimes see things from a different, more distant angle. She doesn't work on the covid front line, or in ICU, but has friends who do, and daily sees the state they are in. She treats c

  20. It's not that you are fishing, it's that you are out of your home. Whilst on the bank you might have a heart attack which might entail the fire brigade, the ambulance, a paramedic, even an air ambulance and probably the Police. Stay at home, varnish all your rods and service all your reels. Only six months until the start of the season, if we are lucky!

  21. I was on crash duty sitting at the end of the runway in a crash wagon at RNAS Yeovilton in Somerset when the yanks delivered the very first of our naval Phantoms which had been refitted with our British Rolls Royce engines, and we could hear over the intercom the American Pilots who were flying them commenting on how good these British Rolls Royce engines were compared to the ones that they had in their own Phantoms back home in the USA.

  23. I haven't posted for a spell but thought i'd post todays results as it's the first time out this year . I had an hours trotting in the snow today, first bit of fishing of 2021. As I drove to the river the car thermometer showed it was 0.5, so only just above freezing. After arriving at the carpark the skies looked a bit iffy and as I started to walk to the river it began to snow, the snow progressed to heavy snow in the form of large flakes. At the river, it looked awful, it was a dirty brown colour and was still up from the previous days snow melting. I had no luck in the first t

  26. It is called evolution Phone, many years ago the common red herring was abundant in British waters, although known to be amphibians they remained sea bound as their only predator, the common spotted sense (often abbreviated to common sense) was abundant in every part of The British Isles. Sadly as time passed common sense itself began to be eradicated by an invasive species the Social Media. The Social Media was often invisible but it had an uncanny ability to infect Humans particularly those with a lessened immunity thought to be linked somehow to the common sense. The social media forms

  27. Chesters, I take it from your University post that somebody I have set to ignore is mouthing off about the U.K. withdrawing from Erasmus, it is apparent because he is the only person on here I ignore. If the simpleton had bothered to read or watch anything other than gutter press (that, as he repeatedly has said, and you have on multiple occasions reminded him of is lies and assumptions), social media or you tube. Perhaps he would be better off as I told him years ago to consult the House of Commons Library or indeed ANY trustworthy site. Announcing the deal Boris was questioned

These days people don't spend much time or thought on sending some personal words to their friends and family...just copying and pasting some random **** and sending it on. So, after all we've been to together this year, I want to thanks you for your friendship and wish you a happy 2018! You are the best gymnastics group anyone could ask for! Best wishes, Helen xx

  31. Hi everyone, just logged on to see who's still about and to wish everybody..... well I would say the usual 'Happy' and 'Merry', but they sound a bit hollow this year, so I'll just wish for you all the same as I hope for, and that's a safe, healthy and as near normal as we can get, Christmas, and New year. Take care all. John.

  32. I don't really do binge any more: I remember puking after my first binge of jelly, ice cream and trifle at my Uncle Dick's wedding in 1955, I don't know why he was called Dick, his name was Clifford, (but my Auntie Jean always had a smile on her face). Further binges followed in the 60s and 70s with an array of very different consumables far removed from jelly and ice cream. The last time I got truly hammered was at my Dad's funeral, Christmas Eve 1975, I do remember that there was no vino left for Xmas day cos I'd already drunk it all. I daren't eat too much either, I'm on a p

  33. Yep, Boris must have been told about this and yet he has done nothing, and let’s face it the virus getting into the Antarctic is obviously due to Brexit and it will have an enormous impact on our fishing fleet especially, well actually only on those that voted leave and, if that is not enough it will cause huge tailbacks of lorries into Bognor Regis and people will not be able to holiday at Butlins.

  37. He has a lot of interesting stuff on his channel, and it's beautifully shot too. With regard to chub on lures, they will start to take them fairly early in the year (I'm spinning for trout - honest) but as soon as those first cool September nights start, forget it. And IMO, you're wasting your time in the winter.

  39. As much as I dislike the Angling Trust chesters, you're wrong on this one. They haven't decreed anything, they haven't got the power, the Government have and did. All the ATr have done is ask the Government how this lockdown affected angling, and then reported back to the anglers, just like they did during the first lockdown. They did lobby the Government and eventually put forward a plan whereby angling could continue, as long as they followed the same criteria with regard to distance, sanitizing, etc as the rest of us. They will probably do the same this time. John.

  40. Hey Phone, hows it hangin bud :). I've still been going out fishing and unusually I was catching barbel well into december on the float! I say unusually because barbel sedom take a trotted bait during the winter months round these parts and prefer to take a legerd bait. I didn't bother posting as without a picture or two of the fish it didn't seem worth it. Anyhow, instead of using the link for forums I pressed ont the link for websites and the pictures appeared! The bait was live red and white maggots, I use as many as I can fit on a size 14s superspade hook and it does t

  41. And anything he is waffling, bleating (bahbah) and any other word you wish to tag on regarding EHIC cards has gone flying out the window as well. The Gov. has announced that EHIC cards held will remain valid until their expiry date, after which they will be replaced by a new GHIC card, allowing access to EU medical services the same as before. As I said before the EHIC DOES NOT give free access to all healthcare and most would advise Travel Insurance whilst travelling abroad. Unfortunately I suppose it will be a reciprocal agreement, the actual terms of the EHIC scheme states yo

  42. Another one the sheep are bleating about the European Medical card, fecking useless if you go abroad, no travel operator will advise you, indeed some will not allow you to travel without travel insurance, had that myself with my Daughter, skiing accident in France, gave over her Card, still got a Bill! But come here from abroad, get off the plane needing a heart bypass and there you go. Final rant, you like Germany so much you should have gone by now, get a job with BMW.
