  1. Steam Packet Warns Of Disruption To Sailings

    I picked up a few bits over the years. One dive at the back of Douglas Head I found a big stainless steel mixing bowl. As there were quite a few boats passing close to our SMB I wore it on my head as we surfaced.
  2. Pedantic Manx police state strikes again

    You should do a "time & motion" on Wrighty then
  3. Pedantic Manx police state strikes again

    Different rules. I understand Ward Clerks are a Civil Service post and so different regs from nurses and doctors
  4. What is happening with kfc place

    There’s plenty going spare across
  5. Abort67

    It does sound ridiculous. Can you expect privacy in a public place? There’s books and courses on street photography. Obviously not illegal.
  6. Beware Living Hope false advertising

    C'mon Rog, on a clear day you can see France from the south coast of England. Does that make France / the EU the mainland also?
  7. New Year Healthy Lifestyle

    I must admit Rog, I'd assumed you'd died a few years ago. Was surprised to see you back.
  8. Unfinished House

    No idea about plumber oxygen. Not been it many care homes. Just something that my wife, a retired nurse, commented on. Re beds and fires, I know the hospital rooms are wide enough to shift a bed ridden person quickly in the event of a fire. Not too sure how a nursing home would cope if they had to get everyone out of bed to escape a fire. It might sound like I'm criticising or complaining - I'm not. I was very happy with the level of service and care at Salisbury Street. The staff are excellent. I was just a bit puzzled about the comments re the building so I asked about it.
  9. Unfinished House

    Doors didn't look particularly wide. Did wonder how they'd push a bed out if there was a fire. Wife also commented that it didn't seem to be designed very well from a health care pov as there didn't seem to be any plumbed in oxygen, etc.
  10. Unfinished House

    What was wrong with Salisbury Street? Just curious, as my mother spent a couple of months there before she died.
  11. Black-eyed Friday

    11am? Did you start at The Whitehouse, or do some other pubs open at 11am that I don’t know about?
  12. Notwell

    I think the word is “tabbed”
  13. Round Pound

    I keep getting them back from the IOM Bank though. Next time I'm getting change I'll go through it in front of them.
  14. Round Pound

    Yeah, and I just bitch tweeted the IOM Bank for giving me a load of UK round pounds the other day.
  15. Iom Courier/carrier For 'my Hermes'.

    Our bloke seems quite good. Friendly, works late in to the evening delivering other people’s goodies. Not a job I’d fancy doing.
