  1. Let's get some persepctive here folks. Manx Radio is LOCAL radio Radio 1, 2, 3, 4 etc are NATIONAL stations Try comparing the Manx Independent with the Daily Mirror/Telegraph ......now do you see!!!!
  2. Some friends and I were talking about David Cole and whatever happened to him. A quick Google search brought up this link to Manx Forums and unfortunately this one as well - Ex-Dale star in porn pic shame December 04, 2007 A FORMER Rochdale FC player caught with child sex images on his computer has been given a three-year community order. David Cole has also been placed on the sex offenders’ register for five years after a series of indecent images were found on his computer. The 44-year-old former defender, of Harrison Drive, Cardiff, had thousands of legal adult pornograph
  3. I've even found things cheaper on hmv.com than at HMV in the street

    Yes. They knew their place then. Not like today's lot
  5. While we're at it ...... http://www.iomtoday.co.im/news/Car-driven-...osed.5625873.jp I'm surprised this sort of thing doesn't happen more often. Incidentally I thought the roads were closed from 10 last Friday as per normal and was surprised to discover they's shut at 9.30 when I tried to cross Bray Hill. So I can understand this sort of thing happening
  6. Here's another area that will be 'restricted' to spectators next year. Quite frankly, I won't blame them but it has to make you question where exactly is safe to watch the races from? http://www.iomtt.com/Home/Forum/ShowPost.a...p;PostID=181826
  7. You really think that's jsutified given the size and population of the Island...dude...chillax. Hey, don't fret, I'm chilled! I just think, to say that it's 'scandalous' to fund the TT chopper by charitable donations and not the taxpayer is ....well .....'scandalous' !
  8. but it is scandalous the whole case. i knew there was a helicopter fund, but i always assumed this was just used as a top up for items above and beyond the 'necessary'. but relying on charity to fund a vital part of getting the racing going is wrong. That's right. The TT and MGP should be paying for this. In fact, why have we not got a medical helicopter on call all year round. Or is it just people who choose to race who should get preferrential treatment as opposed to taxpayers who fund the Island's NHS scheme all year round
  9. Well fubar ....we're waiting ....are you going to inform everyone or are you going to leave your quote as a 'man in the pub' statement.
  10. Having listened to the buzz of helicopters flying overhead it's reminded me about the role of our Hospital during the four weeks of the year we have practicing and racing, I've heard but don't know if it's true that for this period all operations etc are suspended so the medical services can provide facilities for not only the racers who injure themselves but also visiting bikers who fall off and require treatment as well? If this is the case then is it not putting an additional four weeks onto waiting lists?
  11. Sounds like Vietnam out there the number of helicopters flying overhead. I suppose one of them will be filming it of course so that's probably adding to the cacophony
  12. Just listening to the sound of rotor-blades overhead cutting through the air as they make their way to Nobles.....
  13. "We regret to announce the death of a competitor around the TT Mountain Circuit today. Our deepest condolences to his family anf friends. Our thougts are with them at this time........... Right then who's up for another race?"
  14. "Hello, is that the Department of Tourism and Leisure?" "Err, yes" "I was thinking of visiting the Island to come and watch the Manx Grand Prix. Can you tell me what time the races are on?" "Err, what time can you get here?"
  15. Anyone get a professional to fit theirs? If so how much did it cost if you don't mind me asking?
  16. Very good ....thank you for pointing me in the direction of this
  17. You have just asked the most stupid question in the world, I think you should use google more often and STFU from now on. Also the one about sandwhich delivery, yellow pages numb-nuts!!!!!! Please tell me your not responsible for other humanbeings....................I feel for them. Yellow -pages ...when I can tap onto Manx forums ....maybe I should have added 'and what experiences have you had of these services, who do you recommend...etc etc'. But MF posters are normally quick to do so, so I felt no need. Anyway why the hell am I bothering responding to teh likes of you ...
  18. Jamies Kitchen and Indego Red too. Is this a regular thing or a one off catering jobbie? The daily deliveries usually require a pretty hefty minimum order. Hefty minmum order for a daily service - we use one but looking to change
  19. Tesco and the various other supermarkets, borders, wh smiths, cdwow and shopto do blu ray cheaps. Nice one Slim, much appreciated....

  21. Are they the only firms who sell DVDs/CDS online or are there anymore?
  22. Anyone else - or are they the only option?
  23. Exactly. So every single person who complains about being "blocked in" to their house during TT and MGP can't say that they bought/rented the house without knowing that during TT and MGP there may be a bit of inconveniance. If the event was beneficial to the Island then maybe but when it isn't then they have every right to complain. The same as you have the right to post your opinions on this forum. If everyone took your attitude then no-one would every get anywhere.
