I was recently discussing the best place to buy bread in Chorlton--prompted by my lamentation that the bakeries here are bobbins and there are, consequently, very few places to obtain a decent selection of bread. Sommerfield, according to an erstwhile employee who happend to be present, recieve thei...

You can't really knock St George for not being from England; patron saints are rarely nationals and George is a patron saint we share with a surprising number of other nations too. THe stuff about the dragon may seem somewhat bizzare for a cannonised Martyr but, given all christian clebrations are, ...

At long last! Election day, no more having to negotiate the daily tsunami of bile-yellow LibDem leaflets in my hallway and I can finally begin the process of recycling it all. Jeeezus! If I wasn't planning to already, I'd have voted Green in protest at the deforestation of the whole of Borneo that i...

I was reading about this some while back. It sounded interesting and I even cut out the details of the dates from the article and pinned it on my fun stuff board. However, I've not gotten around to going largely put off by the fact that a load of body parts might just creep me out. Scottie, you said...

I rarely ever get any. Whenever I have in the past I've blocked that address/domain so they won't get through a second time. I'm very particular as to whom I give my adress... indeed, a certain quote from the recently deceased actor/gun-nut springs to mind here. 20 spams in one week I would find una...

Regarding the reading of tabloids: From time to time I will, unashamedly, flick through a tabloid if the opportunity presents itself (in a dentist's waiting room, for example, or an abandoned copy left on a bus) though I wouldn't bother buying one. This is not because I think it's beneath me, per se...

You have to hand to the BBC, their site, which is vast, makes for an entertaining place to browse. I don't really see any bias and we can't really knock the questions. They have to be simple to make them accessible to as many as possible to illicit the broadest spectrum of responses. Everyone should...

Flycat I will be the only one to reply to your post. The screenings are great. Go along and be amazed. Best let the others argue amongst themselves as usual. Maybe if you asked them what the sum of 2 plus 2 is the posted answer would come back as "I don't enjoy being with just three biscuits&q...

Hey! I made no specific implications, pejorative or otherwise, about the Americans, I merely stated that the stated poll was taken there. No such inference was drawn about the Danish it seems :P The reason Americans are seen as such easy (and let's be honest, FUN) targets is precisely because of, no...

Films often get re-titled it seems, it's very common when translating to other languages, particularly if the title is idiomatic and thus often rendered meaningless in translation. I'd guess, for example, "Trainspotting" didn't make much sense in other languages. Edit: I've just thought: i...

Chorlton Film Institute

Anyone attending any of the screenings? I noticed recently--whilst out hunting quails gone MIA--a banner on the fencing around St Clement's Church advertising The Chorlton Film Institute's period presence within for screenings of independent films. This Thursday they are showing Hallam Foe (starring...

So, what's the verdict on "Hey Ma"?

I've read several reviews. Whilst None are really gushing, most seem to think it's pretty good.

As to the keeping of quails - well that seems pretty harmless to me.


Unless you are a quail. :cry:
