    Fancy a pint?

    Saw them at the Stanley in Ramsey today. They were walking empty pallets to the pub as I drove past. There were kegs in the back of the lorry. Can only assume they were collecting rather than delivering.
  2. He obviously didn’t have any of the ‘Common sense’ he was always preaching.
  3. I wonder whether midges can spread the Corona. The horrible little biting bastards are out again already.
  4. He was obviously reading from someone else’s script. He pronounced swathe as swoth.
  5. Don’t know about elsewhere, but in Ramsey now that everybody’s at home and the streets are pretty much empty it’s only the young chavs that are left walking around. Hoods up and makeshift face masks on hiding their identity verbally abusing pretty much anyone. They need taking off the streets while we’re having a cleanse.
  6. Sky News? Daily Mail? Lol.
  7. Where can I get this virus? Bored of hearing about it now. Want to catch it, have a week in bed and then carry on with my life.
  8. ‘Fast and Fluid’ is all I keep hearing from the ministers at the daily press conferences.
  9. I’m sure the first caller today said the F word live on air and Andy Wint didn’t even notice.
  10. From watching Ashford’s interview yesterday, the only way you’ll get tested for Coronavirus over here is if you ‘meet the criteria’ by having been to one of the badly affected countries. So basically anyone who catches it from someone in the UK or Ireland won’t get tested here and therefore it won’t officially exist over here.
  11. Don’t know, but it was last year that someone died in a 50 limit at the Creg.
  12. Looks to me like Harry is well and truly under the thumb and has been told by her indoors.
  13. I drive about 200 miles a week here and the driving ain’t as bad as you’re making out. You get the odd Walter but not too many thankfully.
  14. There’s never anything in the press about the countless dozens of bikers that would’ve crashed on the mountain doing similar or greater speeds during TT. Why’s that then?
  15. And sending BACS requires more than one person to authorise the payments so surely both people might’ve wondered why they weren’t sending any benefits that day.
  16. Online banking for you and I uses the ‘faster payments’ system by default. Corporations submit payment files using the older BACS system which is a 3 day process (but actually takes 2).
  17. The government could just ask their bank to send them using the instant ‘Faster Payments’ system instead of the usual 2 day BACS system. Then everyone will get their money today. Might involve a tiny bit of work, though, so it probably won’t happen.
  18. It’s pretty blinding when it’s dark too. And what the hell is the point of it being where it is? You’ve already travelled 90% of the way over the mountain when it warns you of ice. Same with the one in the other direction just before Kate’s Cottage. I’m surprised nobody’s taken a Stihl saw to them.
  19. There is another sign to warn drivers leaving Douglas. Maybe it wasn’t switched on when you went past. The other sign you are talking about, facing drivers entering Douglas, was originally facing drivers leaving Douglas but it was so far down the road from the Jonny Wattersons junction that you couldn’t read it. So if it said ‘road closed’ people would drive towards the mountain then see the sign and do a u turn and come back to onchan. So they just turned it around and fitted another one closer to the junction.
  20. Pardon the acronyms but it hasn’t worked for several months.
  21. Does anyone still watch that shite?
  22. The police say to leave your fog lights on in the fog, but the modus operandi is to switch them on until a car catches up behind you and then switch them off. Everyone’s happy then.
  23. Because the the Google Play Store doesn’t work properly in the Isle of Man which gets really tiresome.
  24. Are all the ‘at risk’ jobs within IT or are other departments affected too?
