  1. Trumpy at Andrews giving his last speech as President, how many people would have predicted that five years ago. He still seems to be casting doubt on the legitimacy of the election despite so many people, not just in his own Country but others including the U.K. telling him to accept the Democratic vote and move on. Only in the USA some say, thank goodness would never happen here. Can anybody imagine having a democratic vote in this Country and a huge chunk of the minority not accepting the result and continuing to contest it and argue about it four years later?

  2. An Australian Army Recruit sends home a letter to the family. Dear Mum & Dad, I am well, hope youse are too? Tell me big brothers Doug and Phil that the Army is better than workin’ on the farm - tell them to get in quick smart before the jobs are all gone! I wuz a bit slow in settling down at first, because ya don’t hafta get outta bed until 6am. But I like sleeping in now, cuz all ya gotta do before brekky is make ya bed and shine ya boots and clean ya uniform. No cows to milk, no calves to feed, no feed to stack - nothin’!! Ya haz gotta shower though, but its not

  3. Good program on BBC2 today Chesters, ‘Cornwall, this fishing life,’ I’ve been watching this series along with the earlier one for sometime because it is an academic documentary on small fishing communities over time over seen by The Open University. From the previous year I have formed my own opinion that it is without political bias. Tonight’s episode centred around Newquay as the restrictions placed on the town and fishing fleet by BREXIT start to take a toll. Several of the boats, they are huge great boats, some I would estimate perhaps 6 to 8 metres long and are often so large th

  7. I’ve become increasingly concerned about the delays and supply of one of the two vaccines approved for use in the EU, after all we ain’t going to be safe until our near neighbours are also inoculated. I thought I would try the odds and phoned Pfizer to speak to someone in authority. I got through after a long wait and asked what would happen if the EU didn’t get supplies of the vaccine. One of the Pfizer Chiefs told me “I predict a riot!”

  11. BB, As carp slowly became a "sport fish" in the US your story rings true over here also. We only have a very few private carp lakes and the 'BAN" list is as long as your arm. If you think BRITS are clueless you should make a trip - - - no, wait - - I SERIOUSLY doubt your heart could take it Phone

  12. Feels like one at the moment. Blood O2 is about 98% and my energy drained away like water when I cycled to the test centre but other than that its okay. It almost certainly is Covid though, folks at work have been dropping like flies.

  15. If you need to get rid of your supply of Tiger Nuts I understand they are a cure for something in Chinese medicine! Only if you have the Tiger penis as well though so you might have to find someone with an abundance of Willies and a shortage of the nuts. Hope this helps.

  16. Tiger Nuts & Nuts in general are now Widely Banned on Commercials. You need to read Individual Fishery Rules.

  17. I've seen on Telly where Raw Steak is a great Chub bait - guess it's the cheaper stewing/shin beef?? Even cheaper if it's on "Oops quick sale shelf" or maybe a few strands of Mince on the hook??

  18. French owned Eurostar (U.K. sold its shares a few years ago) now asking U.K. Govt. for financial help due to losses caused by French Govt. closing/restricting border. Perhaps they should ask the EU to bail them out.

  19. France decided to close the border for travel from Dover, caused a lot of disruption and vehicles held up, the backlog started to clear after the U.K. paid for rapid testing kits to be used. France then decided they didn’t want the rapid tests they wanted the full test on certain groups, they gave almost zero notice, that again caused more delays and backlog, once you have delays like that at Dover it takes time to clear the backlog, four days closure means at least twelve or so days of delays. In the midst of which a group of producers, who HAVE VIRTUALLY ZERO MARKET because the res

  23. No the EU is imposing the rules ,they decide what has to happen going over their border not us . They could easily have said fair does no import tarriffs and none going over your border . The deal was voted in by both parties "A bill bringing the deal into UK law was backed by the Commons by 521 to 73 votes after Parliament was recalled." So blame parliament not just the government labour voted it in aswell

  24. All, Vaccine Distribution has become both a political and actual nightmare. I saw where WISCONSIN had to dump 11,000 doses because "they didn't know it had to remain cold once they received it". I realize I am an exceptionally talented liar but it doesn't take my level of expertise to understand - - if you receive it cold, you probably should store it cold

  30. 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.
