    Steam Packet Warns Of Disruption To Sailings

    just for the record, that's the forecast last night, force 9 would not make getting through the dog-leg of Heysham entrance, or turning, very easy. With all of last night's traffic and probably this morning's Manannan load it wasn't over-packed with pax, maybe the decks were full of campers and vans though. Arrow has been riding out the storm in Laxey bay waiting for the wind to drop and a vacant berth even this morning BMC was heading 160' more like going to Llandudno before turning east Arrow has been riding out the storm in Laxey bay waiting for the wind to drop and a vacant berth

    Smart Meters are coming

    what an utter waste, £18 MILLION to implement, in the hope it will make people cut down on electricity use, will cut staff from going around reading meters (and checking for meter tampering !). If the demand reduces it will drop profit which in turn will increase the price per unit - as happened last time in the 'fuel crisis' (still have my petrol ration book !) if anyone is old enough to remember (1970's), where tv closed down at 10pm etc, demand dropped so to maintain profit level the price increased, and never went back down again :-( I already have an 'Owl' device which tells me how much I am using and doesn't make me switch anything off, I've already converted most lights to led where suitable alternatives were available (not at silly prices !) but the heavy use of electric still need to be utilised for laundry, cooking etc. I fear this is just another 'because everyone else does it' exercise where we follow along like sheep .

    TT2018 - entertainment, tents and that

    I see Hooded Ram are a bit lax in getting cleared out of the bottleneck car park (on the webcam) in previous years Bushy's had to be (and were) all clear and back to a car park mode by monday morning !

    TT 2018

    good heavens above, the event has hardly finished yet pronouncements from Government on how much has been spent by TT fans, how on earth can they figure that out, with a bank holiday before the last races and a weekend, CS are not even back at work in the office until tomorrow, so exactly which hat were these figures plucked from ? I have never experienced Government react so fast, there must be an election coming up or something (it takes planning long years to say NO to anything anyone wants to do)

    TT 2018

    so the track was red flagged, and if the air-med / marshals says it's a fatality surely there's no longer a need to go like a loon to get there Cars have no place amongst bikes #redmist

    TT 2018

    I suppose they said "lessons will be learned" and other 'bs' the last time when riders were convoyed WD by TM's, but obviously not learned well enough I thought this rule was long established (like over 10yrs ago) and it's a BIG mistake putting cars amongst the bikes (like the number of cyclists hit by cars on TdF) #shutstabledoor
