    Fancy a pint?

    apologies I had no idea what the place was called I just call in a couple of times. I didn't find it that expensive but I never went for the mystery box

    Sea sickness was all in the mind SMUJ that is until it was all over the floor...

    I did a short spell working for James Caine when they used to bring furniture over on the side loaders. We were unloading on one particularly windy day and one of the double wardrobes ended up in the harbour floating out towards the tower.

    rather than take the chance of having your pants pulled down and financially spanked, have you tried the little beer shop opposite The Thirsty Pigeon. He has a good selection of ales

    I see your level of expertise in how pubs run is fantastic
  6. You really need to learn how to read. I asked you a question. All it required was a simple answer that even you could manage. So not sure how you arrived at that comment

    Plus that lovely warm diesel smell...
  8. Nobody is stopping you going on holiday are they?

    as a child coming over here on holiday, it was an adventure travelling on the boats that carried the smaller farm animals at the back. Down a flight of stairs and it was like a petting zoo.
  10. what if the key worker is a carrier without knowing it. He passes it on ad infinitum and the track and trace goes to pot
  11. Up to the late 70's, tourism was such that you could see the need for a wide promenade. With that not being the case these days, why have they kept the walkway so wide at the Queens Prom end. Surely a slightly wider road would be more beneficial. Cars parking back on the prom coupled with the wider tracks = traffic problems on the prom. The nagtrams will be running as soon as balloon knot can run them which means if you are unlucky enough to get behind a large vehicle, you are going to be travelling at the same speed as the tram.

    Not forgetting their breakfast on the way out. Served on a dry plate not swimming in assorted liquids

    Agree about the Manx Viking. It also had a dedicated bunking area for freight drivers
  14. It's a valid question I agree. One he appears to know all the answers to as he is answering them himself. So not sure what he's fishing for eta - it makes a nonsense of shutting the borders if they are allowing this to happen
  15. Since you appear to know all the answers, what exactly are you fishing for?
  16. avoiding you and your inane ramblings...
  17. there's a lot wrong with it but it's workable as long as people concentrate on the road whilst driving
  18. You draw the line when it becomes safe to do so. That moment is not here yet
  19. How do you know he hasn't self isolated for 14 days?

    It certainly wasn't the first four that's for sure... To be honest, any of the old style boats were better than the current vessel. They had a bit of character. The silver service restaurant on board always made the trip a bit special

    Mona’s Isle for me
  22. Magic. Do you actually read what you post?
  23. Shouldn't be too much of a problem. There are enough apologists on here...
  24. Cancel the bike, get a van
