  1. Unfortunately some motorcyclists seem to be a law unto themselves and are hell bent on spoiling things for other people. Last week I saw motor cycle tyre marks in Archallagan, I have seen bikes in South Barrule plantation and I have been told that they also ride in the Cringle plantation. I often see the "weekend visitors" usually plastered in mud and often riding like mad things on the road.
  2. When I book the camper on the boat I book for over 6 metres. How do they know what weight it is?
  3. Has anyone used Island Fixtures and Fittings to repair their double glazing? We have a few units that need replacing and wondered if thei system might be a cheaper option.
  4. Right thanks. Is it the craft that has the weight limit or the gangway thing you go over to get on to it? I think they have advertised the weight limit in Liverpool as 3 tonnes as well but we have no problem there and have never seen anything being weighed.
  5. We used to enjoy trips to Ireland but having bought a bigger camper a couple of years ago we found that it was overweight for the what was then the Seacat. Can anyone tell me what the weight limit is on the Snaefell as I can't remember which of the Seacats it is? Do they still weigh campers before embarkation?
  6. I don't think there is any legislation at the moment to prevent people burning rubbish and action can only be taken if the smoke is blowing into someones house.
  7. Environmental health are investigating the incident. Most of the fires around here are not accidents as the occur on a regular basis in the same places.
  8. According to Heritage Homes it was an accident. It seems to be an occupational hazard on building and industrial sites these days. There was a big black plume within a few hundred yards of my house this morning. I believe there will be new legislation brought in in the new year to stop these unfortunate accidents.
  9. There is a further Manx connection at the Olympics although purely financial. The horse ridden by Mary King in the 3day event is owned by Eddie Davies (Strix). He spends vast amounts of momey on Eventers and show jumpers.
  10. I thoroughly agree with Ean, quite shocked actually.
  11. Went on Tuesday and thought it was excellent. I've seen it in Londom with Stephanie Lawrence and David Cassidy and this production was equally as good. Did Micky remind any one else of one of our MHKs?
  12. I had a visit from a chap from DOLGE about the case I reported and he reckons fly tipping on the island is out of hand. It's over a month now since I told them and the commissioners and the stuff is still lying there and i'm still waiting to make a statement. Three years ago I reported a heap of asbestos dumped in the same place and that's still there as well.
  13. I saw some people tipping right next to a main road in broad daylight about a month ago. I reported it to the appropriate authorities and hopefully action will be taken but the heap of rubbish plus another one from a return visit is still there. In the same area there is also rubbish from previous tippings which has been lying there for months and noone seems to care.
  14. I know there will probably be all sorts of witty replies but does anyone know where I can find an invisible mender?
  15. Try Robin Crompton in Port St Mary 834521 he may be able to help. He has bags and belts and I think could probably advise on any problems with the machine.

    I remember a Juan in Castletown who would be about seventy now. Also come to think of it a certain very popular teacher at CRHS had a son called Juan who will be in his early fifties.
  17. Procrastination is the thief of time. Think before you ink. Both well remembered sayings of John Atkinson English teacher CRHS
  18. Can any one recommend someone who fixes washing machines? Thanks
  19. Most of the filming was done in the Foxdale Film Studio which was built as a cattle shed. Whether or not it ever got change of use is debateable.
  20. I once attempted to rear a goose for Christmas but the dog got in first and killed it a week too soon.
  21. I'm as Manx as the hills yessir but it really worries me when I hear, usually on news reports about " the Isle of Man people." I've even heard this on Manx Radio.
  22. The last one. Great celebrations and watched it on a tiny tele with a room full of people.
  23. I can remember the Coronation! Looking old but don't feel it.
  24. Unfortunately the heavy mob from Foxdale are backing him!
