  1. But do you want to live longer if you are not ageing slower? We are just being old and almost dead for longer. It's not like you can do much other than sit in a comfy chair and stare out a window.
  2. Is this anything to do with the alleged new VAT windfall I've heard mutterings about?
  3. I'm actually looking at something similar in the office too. My understanding is Skype is due to be completely phased out in the next year or so and replaced by Microsoft 'Teams'. One option I've heard about but not yet tested is Whatsapp. Apparently if you have this on your phone already you can use it on your computer, but you will need to download an 'Android emulator'.
  4. Yep it's local. I see it driving into Douglas from daan saaf every now and then.
  5. I'd always just assumed it was 'Quarterbridge' because there's 4 main roads meeting on a bridge ....
  6. I've got a bin bag full of bean bag beans...
  7. Fatima Whitbread? I'm jealous of her arms and I go to the gym!
  8. I've always used a sightly amended UK Assured Shorthold Tenancy document (just with references to the specific UK tenancy laws removed/replaced with IOM). Never had any issues with it and had a couple of nightmare tenants where we've had to rely upon terms in the agreement.
  9. Although Ais Holt might also be effectively the top of Richmond Hill. I need to dig out an ordnance survey map and see what it says are the hill names.
  10. Holt Hill (Ais Holt) is the original name of the hill west of the current hotel. It is the one that has Chibbanagh plantation on top of. The Murray Family (Dukes of Athol) purchased the land, hence became Mt Murray. I don't know if there is any archaeology up that way. The 5th century graveyard and Keeil if that's what you were referring to, is East of the hotel on next to Speke Lane. There is a standing stone there now, but i believe this isn't original and was just placed there as a marker. It was excavated by Time Team in 2007. I did find a link to the dig report, but seems to be broken now and the pdf is too big to attach.
  11. I know. I think it's brilliant how Pamela has turned into a sagely accurate political commentator.
  12. Pamela Anderson says "Britain is just America's bitch and just needs a diversion from the idiotic Brexit bullshit"
  13. Cool, I'll have a snoop over the weekend. Was going to look at the Celtic Fort/Motte near the gun range and dodge golf balls at ye olde graveyard also.
  14. John, loving the photos - where did you dig them up from? Hugely appreciated.
