  1. From 3FM: Nativity figures donated by a church in Douglas have been put back on public display at Noble’s Hospital.
  2. Did the landowner do the clean up? If it was he's quite right as I bet very few asked for his permission to hang their junk out.
  3. We'd better get all those trees, lights and decorations removed from public places where they might be offensive to somebody. Don't forget to return all those Christmas presents too as these symbolise gifts brought for Christ. .......and stop all this offensive Christmas Party nonsense as you don't know who you might upset. But, why stop there? There are lots of Christian churches on the Island. Get them covered up at once!
  4. Nor can I, unless there really is an agenda to hide them away from the general public.
  5. I placed a "?" In the topic title and it certainly attracted some answers. Happy Christmas! Peace on Earth and Good Will to All. .........if that's not offensive to anyone.
  6. Snap! You got there just before me.
  7. How many of our MHKs are receiving farming grants?
  8. According to a recent post on Facebook, "This note was in this weeks Catholic Church newsletter."
  9. If you're talking about Happy Valley Beach it's been used that way since at least 1984. It's a Manx tradition. Big Brother will still be watching.
  10. I can imagine the fuss that JH would have made had another MHK been found guilty of such a mistake/deceit.

    Petrol Prices

    Another fuel price cut! From tomorrow (Sat Dec 13) you'll pay no more than 112.7ppl for unleaded or 118.7ppl for diesel at Asda.
  12. JH has used the phrase, "Not fit for purpose," often enough. He should accept that, however his present blunder is dissected, he has landed himself in that category.
  13. Even fewer people realise that a Viking invented driverless cars......... Henrik Fjord, of course.
  14. A Christmas present that may save lives. If someone that you know drives with little or no view over their steering wheel, buy them a booster cushion and insist that they use it.
  15. This whole issue is simply small fry outlay in the vast ocean of Government overspending, and seems to have been provoked by another rant from Houghton. It also appears, from Rodan's recent explanation on MR, that the return from the Hansard (Phillips's trips?) more than covers all the outlay. Are we just being wound up by Houghton in order to create a fuss, to remind his voters that he's still there?
  16. "Brio - Possibly the world’s most expansive railway system Our railway range has always been one of our most popular collections and includes everything a budding railway engineer could possibly need." Brio and compatible wooden railway system toys. All the track, crossings, bridges, engines, carriages etc., shown in the photos. Most in excellent condition. £75.00 South
  17. The public voted him in. Well done the voters!
  18. 'Apologies if it has already been established on this encyclopaedic thread. Who owns/runs the franchise for Spar on the Isle of Man and who are his/her best friends?
  19. This issue has already been pointed out to members of TM staff by concerned customers. I would hope that the staff have already forwarded these concerns to TM management. My reason for posting here is to make other customers aware of the issue. I trust that someone will post in this thread if/when it has been sorted out by management.
  20. It appears that it is common practice by the shop assistants in (some?) departments at TM to cut the manufacturers' tags off items that you purchase. Effectively this means that they need not accept returns or exchanges on the grounds that items have been used or worn. I believe it is the customer's right to have the manufacturers' tag(s) left attached to purchased items. Isn't removal of these tags (and I am not referring to security tags) either bad practice or sharp practice?

    How many people are employed in the Office of Fair Trading? What do they do?

    This is typical chocolate fire guard effectiveness from the Office of Let's Make Idle Threats, as usual.
