  1. Once again thanks everyone, gonna get some from the Manx Blind assoc. they are willing to take debit card over the phone and mail them to me.... now thats what I call service!
  2. I was surprised too about the poor choice of xmas cards on the net. Ta for all your replies.
  3. Hi, I am off island, and would like to purchase some IOM xmas cards with nice snowy type scenes, maybe the Laxey Wheel? I have done a quick google, but nothing there I fancy. Would also like the christmas greeting in manx... can anyone point me in the right direction?
  4. I live in a council property, we get a total of 4 weeks "rent free", 2 weeks at xmas and 2 weeks at the end of March..
  5. I live about 3 miles away from where Bradley Wiggins was knocked off his bike, our street is quite busy with traffic, mainly cars, not a very well lit area either, but parents still will not protect their little darlings, kids as young as 4 are out on their bikes in the hours of darkness, riding in the road, with no lights, or protective headgear or high visability clothing. This is an accident waiting to happen.
  6. Here is another account of the terrible ordeal this blind man from Chorley suffered. I live in Chorley and it is still the topic of conversation now. http://www.chorley-guardian.co.uk/news/local/blind-man-tasered-in-police-blunder-1-5034507

    I remember using selotape to keep the massive hem up on my trousers cos I have little legs! I believe the people of NW England refer to sweets as toffees or at least that how was explained to me when I asked someone who said it. I believe that Everton are nicknamed as the toffees for the same reason, Everton mints - sweets I now live in Lancashire and it drives me nuts, all sweets including mints & fizzy sweets are called toffees!
  10. Not sure about taxes, will have to enquire as I haven't flown since the discount was issued to me.
  11. I have just seen this on manx radio website, so chuffed with the news, just wondering what the fare will be, as I have family member who works with BA I can get 90% discount woooooohoooooooooooooooooooooooooo
  12. Hmmmmmm did yu watch WATCHDOG on BBC1 last week? It was on about Dulux White Gloss Paint, may not apply to you, but here is the link http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/watchdog/2012/03/dulux.html
  13. Saw Bernie Flint many moons ago (1976 ish) at the Villa Marina, he looks nothing like that pic now, back in the day he had a fantastic voice..... not heard of him for years apart from the fact a friend of mine has visited him in Southport where he now lives.

    We have a Greggs shop in our local town and they are shite. We also have a Greenhalghs and that is much better quality. Thank your lucky stars you haven't got one of them Pound Bakery shops that sprung up in our town before christmas, pure and utter shite. Personally I would rather pay a few pence more and get something decent to eat.
  15. On tonights show was a fella called Dom, he has lived on the IOM since he was 4.... the show referred to the IOM quite a lot, and Dom even took the banker some manx knobs. Shame he didn't have a good win, but he still walked away with more then he started with.
