No it's not, the tiny number of people who post on here are:
a) adults
b) not remotely offended by the word "arse"

We have to respect the views of all the yummy mummies who took over the Beech when it served thai food.

That's a really good idea, especially as it's very close to my house (I'm not a nimby).

Re: Oswald Road school extension

The delay is 2 days, not a week. They should have gone back on Thursday but now start on Monday. I think most parents would have anticipated the possibility of a delayed start. The design is to a budget, the original plan was to knock down the whole building and build a complete new modern school. U...

However, I'm curious, whats wrong with Ken Fosters? I've never had a problem there in the 3 or 4 visits I've had.

And I am no Bradley Wiggins or Danny Macaskill by any stretch of the imagination.


As others have posted, they are very expensive.

Re: Beer....

I wasn't being particularly serious about fruit beers. I was just making a point that my personal opinion isn't necessarily an actual fact. I don't like fruit beer but loads of people do, it's just a matter of taste.

Re: Beer....

It would be a shame if discerning beer drinkers start falling out over "real ale v craft beer". I'm a big fan of quality beer, in the case of traditional British beers that means real ale, but I also like great European beers and I would rather drink a great lager than a poor real ale. Or ...

Re: Beer....

Sounds interesting, I'm a pretty keen home brewer and I like the idea of taking a step up to a more commercial level. What's your plan exactly?

Re: Energy saving advice anyone?

You have solid walls so no cavity to fill. Pearl is right, thick thermally lined curtains are essential as you don't have double glazing.
