  1. Thick cloud. Typical.

  2. Off to see Derren Brown!

    1. Mokidugway

      Mokidugway

      Did you see him ??..

  3. My new binoculars are great. From Medway I can see clearly aircraft type and airline in holding patterns for Heathrow over Central-North London!

      I can see clearly now the rain has gone :)...

  4. For those that know binoculars which pair is best (see below in comments)

      Both are a little big though. I'm looking for a good pair of compact roof prism binoclars that I can take on holiday for stuff like looking at the horiszon and maybe the odd bit of planespotting at the airport on the way.

      Any other recommendations?

  5. Is there any way of finding your old statuses on here?

      Click on your name (top right) then my profile on the left click profile feed and they all show up

  6. Just witnessed a complete cous cous drive full pelt into a puddle of water and soak and elderly man. Who does that?

    1. Captain Shortwave

      Captain Shortwave

      @Moki, I don't think we can throw that offence at this driver and this person clearly knew what he/she was doing

    2. Mokidugway

      Mokidugway

      True ,he did ,but a possible driving ban and unlimited fine should make the lowlife responsible think twice !!if they catch him of course ..

  7. Sorry did I just hear Rifkind complain about his 'measly' 67K salary?

    1. Lauren

      Lauren

      But that's only his basic, after all his other duties and obligations, he takes home over 150K a year!

    2. CatchMyDrift

      CatchMyDrift

      Aye, and on top of that he gets all his bills paid for him! I wish I could claim expenses for my lunch from work.

  8. Does anyone actually go through 'Goods To Declare' at the arrival airport?

    1. Lauren

      Lauren

      Or as they said on 'Come Fly With Me'...the red channel is where arrivals go if they have goods to declare and the green channel is where they go if they have goods to declare but are going to try and get away with it.

    2. Nick L

      Most of the time when I go through arrivals there aren't even staff in the customs area, let alone people declaring stuff. Bet it's easy to smuggle in excess booze and fags.

      I know! I swear it's just there to seem official.

  9. I'm looking for a good quality pair of bincoulars. Preferably compact and roof prism and quite light. Don't want to blow the budget, but not too cheap either. Suggestions?

    1. gottolovethisweather

      gottolovethisweather

      Second hand is always an option and that's what I had done in the past.

      Celestron 25x70s are about 75 quid on Amazon. They are quite heavy but well worth it.

      Great, I'll take a look. Thanks!

  11. So am I right in understanding the models that there is very little chance of snow now for the beginning of 2015?

    1. Snowy Easterlies

      Snowy Easterlies

      probably 11 months as snow is rare in dec

    2. xSnow

      xSnow

      The possibility of any decent snow (in the South) this Winter is low, but I wouldn't rule out late February into March completely out of the question, but honestly, it doesn't happen very often that snow falls in March and when it does it is usually limited.

      Is it still winter? It feels to me winter ended two weeks ago after starting in mid January.

  21. Just had a look at house price oop north and it's amazing what we could get for the price of our house up there. It aint cheap darn sarf.

    1. Mokidugway

      Mokidugway

      I bought my property just under 9 years ago for 440 k at the time I thought perhaps it was the most stupid thing I've ever done now the way house prices are it doesn't seem a lot !!!.

  23. Seriously cringing for the admin flirting majorly with the IT man who is about 30 years younger than her.

    1. Lauren

      Lauren

      It's not the age, it's the flirting itself that's embarassing. Imagine the most cringy flirting you can imagine and then double it. He keeps trying to get away!

  24. Are people aware they are attending an NHS Mental Health service? Not a come when you fancy, appointments only when it's convenient for them service?

      that's poor, no wonder you are cheesed off.How about phoning to let you know that they won't be able to keep the appointment?

      Apologies Lauren, that was a bit insensitive of me, yes the community centres are good, my last shrink at the cmht trusted and believed in me and got my drivers license back, however ive been a patient in 5 mhu's in hertfordshire and only 1 did i feel 'im getting better in here'. But in their defence they are probably understaffed and underpaid for a 'not great' job.

    4. Lauren

      Lauren

      They are mickey. Unfortunately in those working conditions, sometimes bedside manner can go out the window, like most hospitals really. There really is a huge difference in MHU's which have better funding. Mental Health is woefully and dangerously underfunded and staff shockingly paid. Most people are completely shocked when they learn how much I earn! Glad to hear you are better :)

  25. You know what media and politicians? Until you've worked in the NHS on the frontline, you can stick your opinions up your I have a problem. You have no idea, none.

    1. Lauren

      Lauren

      All moaning about it and sing it as a political weappn without actually doing anything about it. We could have told them (and did) years ago that this would happen, but no one cares until it does happen by which point it's too late. They slag off staff like scapegoats.

    2. lassie23

      lassie23

      The only bring up the NHS when there is an election. The privatisation argument always resurfaces and A&E crisis.

    3. Glaswegianblizzard

      Glaswegianblizzard

      Very sad what's being done to the NHS down there. Being softened up for sell off, so they deliberately underfund it and make it look incompetent.
