  1. I downloaded it, a slow burn that ramps up every episode to a brilliant denouement, one of the best I have seen in some time, I highly recommend it.
  2. Is it this one or the Kentucky clan one. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Outsider_(miniseries)

    Lockdown cooking

    I love Jamie Oliver and his "Keep cooking and carry on" Where he tells us we can substitute ingredients with those we have in our own larders. So here is my Madras King Prawn Curry with an Aubergine Jus and Pondicherry style Naan bread

    Not really John, the professional trade would not be designed around "amateur" electricians needs, the main change was when it was realised that the two colours mixed up by colour blindness were red and green, so earth conductor colour became green/ yellow, even colour blind folk see it as bi coloured / stripey. In reality Euro harmonization dictated the change from 3 phase Red/Yellow/Blue to Euro Black/ Brown / Grey with Neutral changing from Black to Blue. So for UK sparks, what was Black, neutral became Black live and Blue live became Blue neutral. When I first started it was red/white and blue, so patriotic and easy to remember.

    this was why colours were changed, red/ black became brown / blue, ----green for earth became bi coloured, green / yellow.

    Freezing weather.

    I love the look on people's faces, Standing Freezing at the Bus Stop, as I drive past them. It's partly the reason, why I became a Bus Vannin Driver..
  7. A land swap maybe? assuming they dont mean they will become Dandara tenants. I always thought, a couple of lifts, enclose the entrance, the rear walkways, put a footbridge to Shaws Brew and you would have some fine apartments with potential. [ I did some C ofW inspections for DC a few years back.]
  8. Any thoughts on replacements, will they be Public owned or is this a private development, no clue within the reports. Quayles I imagine private but Lord st?
  9. This is Back Strand St proper, it ran from [Cattle] Market Street to the foot of Well Rd Hill, Quirks and Marslands bakeries, Colin Ingles Sign workshop. A vestige of this still exists astern the Strand Centre. I think this is a David Stowell image, good man that he is
  10. How we traversed the longtail run , on the right is access into Jackie Fayles yard, ex tannery, from there down ot the demolition area of Tynwald Terrace and into Back Strand St, along to the Guttery and cut into the Strand.
  11. A coincidental facebook post that I just plonked up about the topic area. Castle street This is a Nicholson sketch of 1868, it shows Brown's Shore inn, latterly the Falcon or Shakes Lounge, the rest of the Falcon hotel yet to be built on the left. Alongside, left is Senna Slip, Senna Road out of sight right. Just beyond Senna is where the Masonic hall will be built, [ Tom Reece's, Chinese Restaurant, Manx Radio, aquarium. etc]. Now it is the Tower House Mall. From Senna forward to Strand street is Castle street, from Senna to Church road is Marina Road. Senna slip and Road both still remain much the same.
  12. The Temple was on the top floor John, the older Freemasons could use the Hydraulic lift to take them up, i had a skeet in during the Demolition, it was water powered. The first floor, rear had a slot machine arcade for a good while. Going back it was known as Castle Mona Road, hence the name on this image, ground floor, 28 Castle street .
  13. Any skeet on progress with the ex Shoprite retail unit? it's a been a while, is it a quiet Gov abandoned "Tholtan" in the middle of the town? Any sniffs for a tenant or will it just segue into a private car park for mainly Gov workers? https://www.three.fm/news/isle-of-man-news/roof-repairs-for-medical-center-in-chester-street-car-park/
  14. Some new measurements to come into use after Brexit 2000 Mockingbirds = Two kilomockingbirds---[ a sin for short ] 1000 Aches=One Megahurtz 10 Cards = One decacards 0.5 of a Large intestine = One semi Colon. 365 days on alcohol free beer = One Lite year Time between slipping on a peel and impact = One Bananosecond Time to sail 220 yards at one nautical mile per hour = One Knot-furlong

    Kids games.

    When we were Kids, My Brother John and I used to play Cowboys and Indians. He would be the Corner Shopkeeper. And I would do Dodgy Roofing Work for him. [Any chance some cash up front? ]

    Sex help

    Two women had been having a friendly lunch when the subject turned to sex. "You know, John and I have been having some sexual problems", Linda told her friend. "That's amazing!" Mary replied, "So have Tom and I. We're thinking of going to a sex therapist", said Linda. "Oh, we could never do that! We'd be too embarrassed!", responded Mary. "But after you go, will you please tell me how it went?" Several weeks passed, and the two friends met for lunch again. "So how did the sex therapy work out, Linda?", Mary asked. "Things couldn't be better!", Linda exclaimed. "We began with a physical exam, and afterward the doctor said he was certain he could help us". "He told us to stop at the grocery store on the way home and buy a Bunch of Grapes and a Dozen Donuts. He told us to sit on the floor nude, and toss the Grapes and Donuts at each other. Every grape that went into my vagina, John had to get it out with his tongue. Every donut that I ringed his penis with, I had to eat. Our sex life is wonderful, in fact it's better than it's ever been!" With that endorsement Mary talked her husband into an appointment with the same sex therapist. After the physical exams were completed the doctor called Mary and Tom into his office. "I'm afraid there is nothing I can do for you," he said. "But doctor," Mary complained, "you did such good for Linda and John, surely you must have a suggestion for us! Please, please, can't you give us some help? Any help at all?" "Well, OK," the doctor answered. "On your way home, I want you to stop at Tescos and buy a Bag of Apples and a Bag of Hula Hoops..."

    TV Licensing

    While the transmission of "Waves" through the ether can be detected, I'm still dubious how they detect the reception of "waves"
  20. Selling the site, then buying it back developed, why not just develop themselves using a contract system as has been used for years, it's not like they are understaffed. The sales commissions, and buying back profit margins must add up to a pretty penny .
