  1. Has anyone noticed that the magnetic effect is only in the right arm.... .....there's klingons on the starboard bow...
  2. Still not fixed. This afternoon's 15.00 Liverpool sailing has the following warning - The Manannan is currently running with a short delay. This sailing will now depart from Douglas at 15:45hrs. Passenger are asked to check-in no later than 15:15hrs.
  3. Condor's no better - ‘Voyager has also experienced a technical issue with one of her four engines so her sailing from Poole [on Thursday] was cancelled" People in Jersey are getting critical, if they weren't already.
  4. They're talking about giving out the flu jab at the same time, one in each arm - a double whammy jabby.
  5. Image 5 has a "floating bus stop". Are they sending buses down the river?
  6. People have a natural magnetism. If the vaccination has enhanced mine, then I'm all for it. 😁
  7. Thought it was my stomach rumbling. 😋
  8. Don't read too much into that, though. A friend in the medical industry, who was double jabbed + 2 a while back. has just recovered from Covid. He reported that "when I was feeling really ill (a 24 hour period) I was producing negative lateral flow and PCR tests. It was a few days after that positive lateral flow & PCR appeared. My GP tells me they are seeing this in the vaccinated population. Had I not rechecked on home lateral flows twice daily and a second PCR, I would have merrily gone to work last week , or to the shops, travel etc." So, had he been ill enough to go into hospital, he would have tested negative on arrival.
  9. There's supposed to be a horse tram track on there by next summer blue moon.
  10. "based upon observed pedestrian desire lines" Do I have Y shaped wrinkles on my face?
  11. Trouble is, vaccination is not stopping the infection spreading. It is only making the infection more tolerable when you catch it. Yeah, so I can live with that, I hope. The jab will help to keep you out of hospital, so it's got to be worth having. Guernsey publishes stats on how many people with Covid have been jabbed. Nearly half their recent cases have been double jabbed. It's not going to go away any time soon. No point being scared of it any more. Just take care, and use a bit of common sense as you go about your normal life, and choose the countries you holiday in carefully!
  12. For comparative purposes, there is an inquest report just out into the fatal tram crash in Croydon in 2016, where the tram was going excessively fast. It appears that the driver may not have been sleeping too well. The verdict was that it was an accident. "The inquest heard that the tram went into a very tight corner, just before the tram stop, at 73km/h (45mph). The speed limit was 20km/h (12mph). " "The foreman of the jury said: "The tram driver became disorientated, which caused loss of awareness in his surroundings, probably due to a lack of sleep. "As a result of which, the driver failed to brake in time and drove his tram towards a tight curve at excessive speed. "The tram left the rails and overturned on to its right side, as a result of which the deceased [were] ejected from the tram and killed.""
  13. It is worse than bonkers, it is tantamount to criminal damage. When planning (or lack of it) goes badly wrong. Lessons should be learned. An update on it, with a link to the petition..
  14. It's to be hoped that they do a proper job, and then keep it maintained, rather than just allow it to silt up again. Heysham has suffered from many years of neglect.
  15. I don't think he ever leaves the Island by boat, otherwise he'd make sure somebody got Heysham Port properly dredged, and kept it so.
  16. Presumably the "worker" is the one who is leaning on the shovel.
  17. Perhaps they're white lies?
  18. Perhaps it's down to education? I was taught, many, many years ago that no matter what someone looks like, the point is that they are human beings, and they should be treated as such. I have been called quite a few things in the past, a lot of them not very nice. It can be hard to try and remember that "Sticks and stones may hurt my bones, but words will never hurt me". The harder the abuse, the harder I got. It would be better for everybody concerned if humans treated other humans with humanity. What is happening now is that certain sectors are rabble rousing.
  19. Nigg** used to be used more as a term of affection once upon a time. Why else would Guy Gibson have given his dog that name? My father called himself one of them in a postcard home once, after he had become extremely suntanned, and I had a toy "golly". Why has anything and everything got to be turned racist nowadays? I once worked with someone who had a lovely South Wales Valleys accent, who would go away somewhere hot for a holiday so that he could suntan the palms of his hands and the soles of his feet. People in general need to wake up to the fact that everyone is the same under the skin.
  20. Does anyone have a huge arrow of the type that has a sucker on the end, to stick in the middle?
  21. Why is it that mindless and ignorant rants about the three English penalty takers are termed racism? Surely if three white English players had been chosen to take the penalties, with similar results, there would have been similar mindless and ignorant rants? "Social" Media has a lot to answer for, for making abuse far too easy. Go back a few years, and there was similar abuse, but not then called racist for some reason... "For years after his infamous penalty miss at Euro 96, Gareth Southgate was abused in the street" "Beckham said: 'I made a mistake in '98 and the reaction at the time was pretty brutal.' But he added: ''If social media was around when I was going through that time in '98 it would have been a whole different story.'"
