    Objections to KFC

    Given the first KFC was in Utah [1] I would expect Mormon chicken [1] No, seriously it was

    Planners rule against ice rink

    There’s a nice, big, flat open tarmac area just come free in Ballasalla. On a bus route, close to main road, loads of room for parking... Just saying...

    Pronunciation argument

    Been puzzling me for while now and it’s not the Heysham conundrum. I’ve always pronounced Mooragh with a soft g - moor-a - but I’ve noticed people increasingly using a hard g - morag. So which should it be?

    Richmond hill

    20mph grit signs and no overtaking signs were up at 6:30 this morning and still there at 4 this afternoon. No sign of any grit or any workers though

    I also seem to remember they removed the flashing speed warning sign from the top of the hill after people complained that it was distracting. Given it would only flash if you were exceeding the speed limit...

    TT2018 - entertainment, tents and that

    They seem to be claiming the Red Arrows and Friday’s firework display as well...

    I think you’ll find that’s why they’re where they are

    Have also heard a rumour (great those, aren’t they?) that Hooded Ram have already made approaches to say they want the Villa Gardens site next year. Anybody know how long a contract Bushys have for the site?

    TT2018 - entertainment, tents and that

    Anybody else find it strange that Reef and Ross Noble are performing in the “intimate” setting of the VIP tent rather than the Villa/Gaiety where Ross Noble in particular would guarantee a sell out? After the civil service allocation there won’t have been many of the 500 tickets left for the general public.

    Supertour 2018

    Friend was on the boat when they were coming over. Sounds like there are some right melons in that group. Plenty of arrogance about driving at excessive speed and “knowing every pebble on the road” and bikes not being able to keep up. But, hey, they get a briefing to drive responsibly and think of the locals so all will be ok.

    Ferrari Crashes At Brown Bobby

    Wasn’t it a body kitted MR2?

    Boatyard - Protesting too loudly?

    Are they the ones with a sign outside saying something like “Please don’t park outside here and spoil our view”? Despite the fact that there’s a clearly marked parking bay on the road

    Ronaldsway Airport

    I’ve long said the charging is the wrong way round. Free hold luggage and charge for hand baggage as it’s the buggers fussing around with their carry on that holds things up. Do away with wheely bags as carry on as well. If you can’t carry it, it’s not hand luggage.

    Flooding on new roads

    On Richmond Hill you have the ridiculous situation of water coming out of the drain cover to go across the road. Only in the Isle of Man could you have new drainage systems that work in reverse
