    manx disabled badge in UK

    I've just looked at the IOMG webpage, which seems to have various conflicting info. The November 2015 letter says one thing (not officially recognised), the January 2016 leaflet a bit different (consulting with UK authorities) and the main page says consulting finished/resolved. Makes most sense to contact the details on the letter, which is where it says to go to for queries. https://www.gov.im/categories/benefits-and-financial-support/social-security-benefits/disabled-parking/

    Of course, Callister has been wanking himself silly since, splurging all over Facebook last night about meeting the Duke...

    How much will this cost us?

  8. Yep same. And even though Spotify is linked, it seems to not give that as an option anymore to make that the default, so have to keep saying “play xxx on Spotify”. Google Play happily working on app though.. Google are great at lots of things, and can be pretty inept at others.

    Villa Marina gig line up

    All very quiet about bands for TT fortnight, other than Gary Barlow, who just happens to be on then. Not that long to go now. Am sure I read Rob Callister saying there was going to be three big bands at the Villa Gaiety. Hooded Ram have also said they'll have big name bands, and I think Bushy's said similar, although Lenny who organises for them recently announced his temporary retirement from promotion. I hope there are plans, as usually there would be announcements well before this time of year.

    Bands that have played in the Isle of Man

    Hawkwind did Summerland around 1995/1996. Preceded by Miss Wet T shirt and various other things to 'entertain' the bikers, and don't think Hawkwind came on stage until close to midnight.
