  1. Hello Sorry to be dull ..... but ....... You know the No1 bus? Does it go, out of Douglas, up past Anagh Coar lights to B&Q roundabout, over and up Richmond Hill, passed Mount Murray, down to Ballasalla then right at the Whitestone pub towards Colby and on to Port Erin? The reason I ask is that I want to get to the Colby Glen Hotel today and I wasn't sure how best to go about it. I've had a look on the timetables online but I can't satisfy myself that I'm going to end up where I want to be by the best route. Are there any bus travellers out there who can help? I'm travelling from the Douglas bus station by the way. Ta muchly
  2. .... listening to 'Somebody to Love' by Jefferson Airplane on my Ipod whilst walking along the prom in the glorious sunshine. Grace Slick has an amazing voice.
  3. I couldn't let this thread pass by without sticking in my own thoughts. Les Mis at the Gaiety was absolutely OUTSTANDING and I promise you I am not a regulat theatre goer and this sort of thing is all new to me. The big stand out song of Master of the House was just incredible and had me grinning from ear to ear, but all the other pieces too were just incredible. I'm sure some of the cast will probably look at this forum for feedback so WELL DONE!! Everybody sat around me, everybody in the theatre! thought it was ace. Well done. Well done. Well done.
  4. Hello all Does anybody have any good photos of the sea coming over the sea wall at Douglas, either recently or generally? I've been trying to take some photos to send to a land locked friend who has 'sea envy' but mine are rubbish and don't capture the 'drama'. If anybody can direct me to any photos that have already been posted or slap a new one on this thread I would be mucho grateful. Also, is it ok if I copy it to send to a pal? I'm not planning on claiming it as my own work or anthing
  5. I think some landlords see children as the ruiners of carpets and the destroyers of decorated walls and possibly the bashers of furniture, but speaking as somebody who rented his house out to two young professionals for two years - those brainless morons did more damage to my property than I suspect some toddlers would have done. Took me two weeks and a LOT of bleach to put the place straight <shudder> And I think Ramsey has mega high rates does it not? That might be why landlords have to 'up' the rental (assuming the landlord pays the rates which happens quite a lot - I know I did)
  6. Hiya, I can't remember if it's them or a representative (the latter I think) but it works because a man came to collect my Xbox when I got the red ring of death. Then a few weeks later he returned with a nice new Xbox - smooth as you like, no problems.
  7. I don't get it. I'm clearly the only one and so I feel left out and miserable
  8. The Pink Penny Shrimp was the king of the penny sweet empire!
  9. Top 5 Pulling a Sicky excuses 1# "I was at a barbeque and I think I ate some dodgy chicken" 2# "I think I've got that winter vomiting thing. Oh its coming out of both ends, you don't want to know." 3# "I've caught that bloody cold thats been going around <cough> I can barely speak" 4# "My little girl is sick so I'll have to look after her" 5# "There's a thin layer of snow on the mountain road so I can't make it in"
  10. Who was the 5th? Was it that girl who was hardly ever in it? Was her name Kimberly?
  11. You can fit the entire population of the earth on the Isle of Wight at the same time.
  12. Untrue. All vertebrates can swim. S All those years spent rescuing pigs from the village pond - wasted!! Damn those playground bullies, damn them to hell!!
  13. Surely they're not songs, just a collection of letters and punctuation. I guess we could stick Crazy Horses by The Osmonds in if that gives you some familiar ground? Ahhh now you're speaking my language. "Crazy Horses! WEEEEEAAAA WEEEEEAAAAA" (very difficult to spell, that)

  15. Pigs are the only animal that can't swim. If they tried, they would cut their throats with their trotters and die a bloody, porky, wet death. (I remember being told this once and have no idea if it's true)
  16. My Top 5 meals 1# Roast Beef Sunday Lunch 2# Vindaloo strength Chicken Curry from Milennium Saagar (the name of it escapes me - but it says 'Vindaloo Strength' next to it) 3# Banquet B from the Water margin 4# As many little plates of joy that I can fit on the table at The Garrisson 5# Sausage, egg, chips and beans on a Saturday lunch time after a Friday night on the booze.

  20. I was still 10 stone (wet through) at 28 and then BANG - Fatty Fat Fat Fat, so you may be good for a few years yet. Enjoy it while you can. Eat pizza EVERY day, drink as much alcohol as you can and make sure you don't do any exercise. I should point out that I have no medical training.
  21. Bolton Wanderers have the longest running sponsor in the football league with Reebok.
  22. "When you're younger you can eat what you like, drink what you like, and still climb into your 26" waist trousers and zip them closed. But then you reach that age ... 24? 25? Your muscles give up, they wave a little white flag and without any warning at all you're suddenly a fat bastard" Rimmer
