    TT 2021 ??

    The hospital will need to be reconfigured and staffed to cope with covid and lots of broken bones. Another item mentioned to me recently The Steamy cant/hasn't ever brought over more that 2,000 per day(I am told). In recent years the airlines have brought over lots. The whole airline industry is currently knackered, I doubt they will have time to mess with the Isle of Man. So we could end up having a humdinger of a TT with no spectators.
  2. Another bloody 100 years of the horse trams !!! ??
  3. One thing you can't get rid of in my experience is mares tails. Sorry, don't know the proper name.
  4. Yes. Regularly, at least once a week, usually daily, pulling any shoots. As with all plants it can only survive by photosynthesis. Took a couple of persistent years pulling. I do need to keep an eye on things though as there is lots on unmanaged land just outside my garden. It will always come back from there.
  5. It must be important that those responsible do not profit from this.
  6. I like that idea non-believer. After all they have to start work on the actual promenade yet (the walkway). I can imagine that taking years to complete.
  7. I take your point Numbnuts but this charade has gone on too long. According to reports Tynwald stated 5he trams must go all the way and paid for that. The money has been spent (probably 3x over) they have got to Broadway. If tenders for the next bit only start in summer to be approved by a new Tynwald after September. I think it is time to call it a day. Just finish what there is now. How can taxpayers pay twice for something?
  8. Is it legal to spend money twice on the project? Heads should roll. The horse trams should stop where they are and let's just finish the f***ing job.
  9. Well there does seem to be an air of urgency at the moment. In the past week I saw two or three groups of workers doing things at the same time. Haven't seen that for a very long time. I am no engineer but it looks to me as though there is still a lot to do.
  10. Best coffee in Douglas is at the Oasis
  11. No. This morning they both said Harris Promenade. Suggesting the prom as about 2ft long between the 2 of them.
  12. If it hasn't been already knocked over by a bus/wagon/ferrari
  13. King Canute gets a bad press. The reality of the story is that he did his bit at the sea side to demonstrate to his subjects that he did not have divine power. Just saying.
  14. Those who chose not to have the vaccine have to accept the consequences. I doubt that more than 100 in our population have any medical reason not to have a jab. Bollocks about pregnancy, not properly tested, conspiracy for mind control etc all nonsense.
