  1. Cool. Download08 was the beginning of the Sunday Classic Rock stage which interested me, unfortunately I never made it that year, but have the last 2. There are other rock and metalheads on the forum, good to see.

    I've got W.A.S.P coming up in November plus I do DJ at rock events over here and probably will be doing Download next year. Hopefully doing 3 fests next year, with any luck.

  2. Wow Cool, Willie Thorne is a good laugh and his snooker venue is brilliant.

    I've played since I was 13/14, highest break in a match is 72 and in practice is 121. I used to play in tournaments over here for u16's and u21's, thats where I met Mark Allan. He was tough when he was 14, hitting 50's. I've played Ronnie O' at 9ball pool too, and Alex Higgins, Joe Swail at ...

      I suggest some in the morning take a look at radar clip (meto) from around Midnight-1am to see what I was referring to.

      More of a whiskey man myself MK, definitely warms the heart.

  14. ANDDDD....It's Raining. Looks like the frontal system is going to produce nought but rain and sleet.

  15. Annoying not having a tumble drier at this time of year. Heating is on to dry the man cloth.

    2. Bottesford


      I don't like using the drier as it wrecks clothes & costs lots. But yes its tricky to avoid during the cold half of the year otherwise stuff just won't dry!

  16. Another cold spell I seen snow this winter. That's 3 spells in the Winter period. Pretty good considering I went 2 years without a flake.

    1. NUT


      Some decent cold spells here this winter I admit the lack of snow laying at times has been frustrating but we did get our best snowfall in over 2 years middle of this month so really can't complain too much

  17. Are you a festival goer? I tend to go to Download every year and some of the metal festivals in and around England (Bloodstock, Soni, Hammerfest) Etc. Was at DL this year and Hammerfest.

  18. As a fan of Japanese Anime, it has been 48 hours since I have left the house, I must complete watching all 300+ episodes of Bleach, I have yet to accomplish 1/4 of these. Only to replenish ones hunger will I leave my man cave in the next week.

  19. Been a hard days work from 7am - 5pm then decorating house this eve. Feels good to get alot done.

  21. Can't believe I'm losing sleep over where to place my anemometer and wind vane, etc. It is exciting to say the least.

  22. Can't sleep, so up doing my washing, having a cuppa, getting ready to shift things about in the house and do some cleaning and decorating this coming week.

  23. Cold spell, what a load of dog biscuits to be honest, for here anyway. Last time I'll ever want an Easterly for the UK.

  24. Come on Fedex, get my delivery into Belfast already. Dieing to unleash my new 6 string.
