    Things that tick you off?

    Latest progress report Just over 38,000 now, that's 10,000 more despite constant publicity for it in one week. I don't think I have seen a petition get so much publicity and get so little response.

    Hey? I'm talking about the top photo, the dinner function.

    The monk figure in the left corner? Compare that with the rest of the people in that photo. Definitely looks odd and note that it is not standing in front of a chair like the rest of the row.

    Spring 2013

    I noticed this as well. I was walking on the Moss behind me on Good Friday, the snow event was the previous Friday and I was gobsmacked to see a snow patch and snow patches still around, a week later

    Ghostly Happenings.

    These type of photos always intrigue me. The photo of a crowd of people and a strange figure amongst them. This was taken in 1985 at Coventry hall and a strange monk like figure in the corner. This is a strange one

    What ever happened to ?

    The opposite of his persona. Laurel was the leader of the team in creation and writing but in the films Hardy played the leader of the duo. They were close, personally and professionally.

    What ever happened to ?

    Stan Laurel was a very modest gentle man. His phone number was in the LA phone directory and you could phone his number and speak to him personally. A number of his famous fans did this in his later years such as Dick Van Dyke, Peter Sellers, Jerry Lewis.

    Spring 2013

    March 2013 was extraordinary, who would have thought it turn out as cold as it did at the start of the month, there wasn't a hint, the CET was 4.9C by the 9th and even taking into the cold just before mid month, you wouldn't have bet on it turn out as sub 3C. I think 9th March-8th April 2013 had a CET of 2.4C, colder than January 1997 The early May Day Bank Holiday was lovely with warm pleasant sunshine. An amazing chart

    What ever happened to ?

    Maybe this should be in the "what ticks you off" thread but he was a one trick pony. He "famously" attacked Michael Parkinson in the 1970s and he has lived off that incident for the rest of his life. How many times did he do that on other shows?

    Best and worst winters

    At least January and February 2001 were more seasonable than January and February 2002 although the first third of January 2002 was seasonable. The second half of winter 2001-02 was a disaster for cold, snow lovers and a godsend who like stormy, gales and very mild weather. And the northern Irish and Scottish folk will remember winter of 2000-01 well because of the big snow events that hit their countries or at least part of it. January 2001 CET: 3.2C February 2001 CET: 4.4C January 2002 CET: 5.5C. February 2002 CET: 7.0C 16th January-14th February 2002 CET: 8.0C! Manchester Winter indices 2000-01: 72 2001-02: 50 Late February 2001 1st February 2002 (typical of the second half of that winter
