Re: Punch & Judy

I know that this is a very old thread, but you may all be interested to know that my father was located in Cornwall and did his Punch and Judy Show for a few seasons on the beaches of Newquay and Padstow. Sadly the whole thing got too much for his arms and after his "tent" was washed away ...

Watched the first clip of the Mezzaluna, but was put off by the cigarette in the middle of the food.

Re: NEW BOARD SHOCK!

Thanks for your time and effort, Mark the Summersaulting Penguin. Yes, It would be nice if you could weed out all non-active members some time.

Just seen this thread. I get over 200 spams a day. BT Yahoo diverts them to a special file automatically and I get about 5 new spams a day which I have to mark as spam. Now I'm getting Russian ones in Russian script. The sad thing is I don't have time to check this spam file so occasionally a good e...

Yes. Could it be that lots of prayers are missing Mecca and going astray? After more thought, I suspect the answer is a little more complicated. The prayers will miss their target first time round. They will then whizz round the world, rather like on a ball of wool. So eventually they will reach Mec...

I often wonder, when seeing Muslims pray, whether they face west when they are on the far side of Mecca?
It would also stop my sleepless nights if I knew which direction they face in Mecca itself - or is it a "do your own thing" situation?

My brother-in-law was a signalman at that junction in the late fifties. My Dad collected train-numbers there and put pennies on the line.

Some of the longer serving members may remember I lived under the bridge in a tent for a year.

Mind you, I always have to "log in" twice

Why don't you tick the "remember" box and never log-in again?

Thank you Annie, I can't agree with your viewpoint and don't actually understand your concerns. If I get an ID card I shall not lose any freedom or liberty. As for having a bar code tattoo on my posterior, I already use adhesive stickers, but they tend to fall off in the shower, so a tattoo would be...

Perhaps I'm weird, but all this hot air about ID cards just passes me by. I can't see what is the problem. I never come into contact with the police. I will carry my ID card with pride and will be most happy to show it to anyone. The information it will contain will not worry me in the slightest. I ...

Annie is right. In a recent thread "the rest of manchester", Jingle wrote an interesting paragraph about North Manchester. Sadly it is peppered with totally unnecessary bad language "shit, shithole, fvck"- and not single capital letter. Pointless and childish.
