  1. The same ship has just come from Orkney where they did some beach cleaning... Never mind - good old Bill will still claim it was a unique idea dreamt up by his good self
  2. Posted this on the Where is Reynolds? thread...
  3. I think he took parts from more than one kit
  4. Fixed speed cameras don't work because, as you say, people learn where they are and slam on the brakes then speed off. There's something to be said for portable cameras that are moved round to random locations at different times (and not the same places at the same time each week/month) I've never understood why speed cameras/traps have to be visible from a distance. If you're speeding you're breaking the law, why does it matter if the camera/policeman is halfway up a tree or buried in a hedge?
  5. So boilerplate auto confirmations as I suspected. Righto then, as you were
  6. Chipping in from sidelines but what's the issue of posting a copy of these acknowledgments you claim to have received? Simply putting up a copy of those would prove that the issue is being looked at, as you claim. If not, I call bollocks like everyone else
  7. They've recycled Jimmy Carr for that one surely
  8. We didn’t start the fire (your honour)
  9. Where’s the “Sloc Mountain Road”?
  10. It’s not the first time it’s been said something will be over by Christmas. Look how that turned out
  11. I think Cav and Crutchlow could more accurately be described as ex-residents as well with the amount of time they spend in Italy as opposed to here. Brass name plates?

    Car Leasing

    Especially as that place has form for "unexplained" conflagrations
  13. Just throwing this in because I'm bored: vehicle /ˈviːɪk(ə)l/ noun noun: vehicle; plural noun: vehicles 1. a thing used for transporting people or goods, especially on land Mandatory insurance? Not sure. Some form of identifying mark so if you cause an accident and leg it there is still a chance of tracing you and claiming on insurance or putting a civil claim? That makes a degree of sense to me

    Where is Reynolds?

    Sumburgh Airport’s “security” fence - a 4 string wire fence And that’s a Google Streetview shot from the main road to the airport, not some random back road at the arse end of the airport
  15. And when we buy new wheels they won’t be compatible with the bogeys and so on
  16. One of the worst places for this is outside Sulby church Colby Malew Church where someone always parks right on the bend blind crest. Never mind, God will forgive them

    We could do with a few of them though

    Beer Tent

    That raises the question of if the fair is coming over this year where is it/the prom walkway parking going?

    If memory serves there are the remains of some stone walls to the left of the road near that cottage. Been a little while since I've been down round that way

    Was going to say it looks like the self catering cottage round Pooil Vaaish (sp?) but it looks like Milner Tower in the background
  21. To be honest, no. And I doubt visitors from across will either so they’ll end up calling the premium rate number. I did call 661661 in the end
  22. Funnily enough, I did. You get the same message. And the texts they send out don’t quote that number at all
  23. Speaking of profit. Today’s Heysham sailing is cancelled and to rebook you have to ring a number charging 11p a minute on top of network charge. Not coining it in are they?
  24. OK. Let me reword that - will probably increase the numbers chancing it. I used to work with someone whose parking fines in a couple of months easily outstripped what they would have paid in a pay and display for the year.
  25. Law of unintended consequences - this will just reaffirm some people's view that it's fine to park there and not go into Tesco. Will probably increase the numbers doing it.
