  1. Roll on some cold, dry sunny weather, how anyone could prefer this soul destroying bucket of sh...te is totally beyond me ,no matter how poxy warm it is. .That's it rant over
  2. Totally sick to death of this incessant rain, I thought at one point that we were possibly in for a dry week ahead , but no, once again sh..te from the Atlantic rears it's ugly head from about midweek onwards.

    In Memoriam

    Pc Keith Blakelock murdered during Broadwater Farm riots 34 years ago tonight.
  4. Try working in it, you end up sweating your cods off. Funnily enough wind driven rain doesn't do mortar joints a lot of good either.
  5. Could do with seeing an end to this crap rain now, need to get some work done. Got bl..dy soaking wet three times last week.

    In Memoriam

    Police Constable Andrew Harper ,R.I.P .
  7. Will probably take a day or two off work ,the roads around here are a bloody nightmare when Eavis holds his knees up.
  8. If this crapfest is supposed to be Summer , then they can poke it.
  9. I know what you mean Pete, at 19 years of age as well . He said that they were sick to the stomach for a week after. When you think about it, that series was ground breaking in it's clarity, it was only 27 years after the war finished .. I think sometimes that remembrance etc has a more pointed meaning for people of our age group, when you consider that it was our Fathers , and Grandfathers that fought it.
  10. I remember watching this series when it was first shown in 1972 , the programme detailing the Holocaust was a real shock to the system at the time. One of the chaps that I used to work with had the job of driving a Bulldozer in Belsen covering up the bodies aged 19 in 1945.
  11. You're right to an extent, life can be a very cruel animal, 20 years ago, I had to deal with the tragic results of such illness on more than one occasion, the worst part of one such incident after dealing with the deceased ,was breaking the news to her parents. Believe me, it affects everyone. Who knows, maybe dealing with such incidents contributed towards my episode years later,one things for sure,you never forget it.
  12. Symptoms of anxiety /depression can creep up on anyone straight out of the blue. I had a dose of it 3 years ago , they said that the combination of the loss of my first wife, plus parents soon afterwards, combined with a near fatal heart attack ,all contributed , pressure at work was the final bit of icing on that cake.
