  1. How about they get all the roads needing drastic repairs/resurfacing done first.
  2. Late 1960s and the car caught fire.
  3. Will the etc. include Birmingham?
  4. He'll be out by end of race week.
  5. Is the ex police inspector's house 12 Victoria Road still Government owned and now up for sale?
  6. Early days when John Coghlan was on drums. One time a resident in Ballasalla.
  7. Perhaps they should turn their attention on road into Ballasalla opposite school.
  8. But does everybody else? What do Jersey and Guernsey spend?
  9. Probably nothing other than a newly created unnecessary position.
  10. But I believe has some sort of new job at the hospital.
  11. I've been a patient at Walton Neurological Centre for four weeks re a head injury. Observation for two weeks prior to operation. Successful and great treatment and care. Had been waiting for transfer back to Nobles for almost a week. NO BEDS AVAILABLE. Cannot fly and return has to be by boat. Getting very frustrated so yesterday emailed David Ashford and within 24 hours a return all sorted on the boat from Birkenhead tomorrow. Still no bed available so it was okayed that I could return home. The Minister 's intervention was much appreciated along with his email updates as I had visions of languishing here for many more days, probably at great cost to IOM health service. Also the patient transfers team on the Island who swiftly made the arrangements.
  12. Well qualified to waste even more money then.
  13. I've seen my cat frighten itself with its own farts.
  14. Well JW I've been here in Walton Neurological Centre for just over three weeks now. Had a fall in October. Two weeks just under observation. Then they decided to operate on the brain. Recovery seems to be going well. Only problem now is waterworks - with catheter. Won't let me fly home because of brain op. so it's a tedious return on boat with escort hopefully next week. Perhaps with a few more days in Nobles. Can't fault the treatment or facilities here. Goodness knows what this is costing the IOM. Wishing you well John. (RJ)
  15. Not hearing much from Derek Flint. Another totally unnecessary appointment.
  16. For me it was anyone else other than Gawne and Cregeen. Seem to have gone from the frying pan to the fire with Moorhouse.
  17. A man full of local knowledge you are John. Good to catch-up on our taxi ride together earlier this evening!
  18. Not much help for me when they say my location is Lowerhouse in N Ireland. Any way of changing that?
  19. Chester Street right on the doorstep with connecting walkway and FREE on Sundays.
