  1. I doubt you'd need Wagatha Christie to solve this though.
  2. It's 'Down North.' Good luck.
  3. I didn't think it was worthy of a mention at the time... It started on September 4th https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/douglas-woman-accused-of-committing-act-against-public-justice/
  4. I'll certainly go to as many games as I can, but then I like my football. I was surprised at the lack of advertising at the match. MT, NK construction and Robinsons was all I could see, so it doesn't look like many businesses are getting behind it.
  5. To be fair to the clubs that have attendances below or around 100, they have bigger clubs on their doorstep whereas we don't. I'd assume the 400 or so in the jump in attendance was for the corporate/complimentery people.

    How do you think I feel? I'm in a 2 bed ground floor man-flat.
  7. http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=64142&headline=Cyber threats on the rise as figures more than double in the last year&sectionIs=news&searchyear=2021 I wonder if the miracle herpes email address is a cyber threat?
  8. Well she managed to stay on just long enough to be at the Governers swearing in party?
  9. Felt like that when I went to a local tv shop about a month ago and the bloke didn't know what a Portable was.
  10. Five pages in and I STILL don't know what this rumour is meant to be. Got to be a record even for MF.

    Topical Joke.

    Why don't Afgans watch the news? Because of the Telly ban
  12. Can't pull the wool over your eyes.
  13. To be honest, after asking the origional question, I didn't expect the thread to go like this. It's excellent. As an aside, I too used to call it Gansey beach @Declan, because that's what everyone called it. There is a close on the Ballafesson to Colby road called 'Carrick Bay View,' and in recent times, I've called the bay 'Carrick Bay.' What I find almost strange are the houses on Shore Road. Their addresses are Shore Road, Rushen. It's as if they haven't been designated a town, village or hamlet.
  14. I certainly did. I've lived all my 51 years down south and it just surprised me that 'Gansey Bay' was mentioned in a manifesto. I'd expect a prospective local MHK to know the correct name. Pedantic? Yes.
  15. For those who have not read the paper... http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=59506&headline=Man sent intimate photos to what he believed was a 12-year-old girl&sectionIs=NEWS&searchyear=2020
  16. I wouldn't have a problem if we have first dibs on the ones who would bring major benefits to the economy.
  17. He was a good mate of mine when we were at school. He was in the top sets of everything. Really intellegent. Then we went our seperate ways and I didn't see him for the best part of 30yrs. The first time I seen him was on the bus and he said 'Hi.' The only thing I could say was, 'Who are you?' He looked a mess. I swore there and then that I'd reduce my drinking. It's a crying shame what has happened to him really. I don't know what the answer is because what's the point of helping him if he won't help himself?
