Re: knife's edge

A bit off the beaten track ... perhaps Arnie will feel obliged to answer ... It rather looks as if I am the only person prepared to regularly ‚out‘ myself regarding my thoughts on Brexit which is a shame really because it really is important to everyone. I am watching all sorts of reports and found ...

Re: knife's edge

Just another point: Incase anybody thinks that staying in Europe is a good option, think about this: Germany is in every bit as much distress as the UK ! Three candidates are bidding to take over from Merkel as head of the CDU (conservatives), because the CDU/CSU & SPD coalition is not working ! One...

Re: knife's edge

Mick, very well put, I guess that 'we the people' were always at the wrong end of the stick. I also recall a story, about a young recruit, on his first day in camp, strolling across the parade square, when the RSM accosted him. Prodding the recruit with his pace stick, the RSM screamed "at the end o...

Re: knife's edge

Good on you Bob, it is only when people stand up for their opinion that any person with open eyes, and a brain, can truly look for, and find, the middle ground. At this point in time, it matters not how we got here, or who said what and when. It does however matter what each and every one of us does...

knife's edge

It rather looks as if we are sitting on a knife's edge, regarding Brexit. Has everyone lost interest ? It is probably the most important event in our life's time and it's certainly going to affect the lives of our kids and theirs. I voted against joining the EEC, which turned into the EU without any...

Re: The big tour

Sammy, The Spaniards want special concessions regarding Gibraltar, the Portuguese a...

Re: The big tour

Hope you liked the pictures Mick, We already had -6°C last night, -10 is common, -15 is regular and it gets down to -25 on occasions, but -39 is hard core; you'd better watch out for your Pinky, Pinky ! :lol: :lol: My problem with the cold is an old leg injury, which caused poor circulation and so c...

Re: Daz at the England v NewZealand Test Match

Well done indeed Daren,

I couldn't open the video, no flash player, whatever that is. Nevertheless, the way the others are strutting with pride I shall join the marching band as so often before !

Re: JOE STAFFORD 14th/20th Kings Hussars 1966 - 1989

It's a bit very late but, RiP Joe ! I remember Joe well, from Herford, a nicer guy you could hardly meet. Now he will rest for ever in the area that I grew up and I'm sure he will enjoy seeing the kids collecting conkers and dueling to become the conker king of C-c-H, just as so many of us did when ...
