  1. Responding to manxforums pressure, growing concerns for the safety of horses and riders on public roads, and unease over the misuse of roundabouts, the DoT will tomorrow reveal full plans for the innovative new "Equestrian Roundabout Lane" in the Isle of Man Courier. In a press release DoT spokesman, Mr Horace Oatts states, "It is envisaged that recycling the horse manure deposited at the roundabout will generate the power to light the 153 additional road signs that the system will require. This installation will complete phase one of the Quarterbridge Redevelopment Scheme."
  2. Heyyyyyy.............that ain't fair..............gimme a different bait, Tony........... Iran just spat that one out!
  3. The DOT speaks: http://www.gov.im/lib/docs/highways/Public...hly_april07.pdf
  4. I completely agree with you. I have always seenthe Mooragh as a Manx Treasure. It provides all that other parks used to, in terms of simple leisure activities in a lovely setting and few, if any, of the standard ingredients of most parks across, such as muggings, stabbings, vandalism, druggies, hooligans, broken glass and litter. The DTL could make more of it in their publicity as many (if I can call the few that come here "many") tourists never even know of it or find it.
  5. Does anyone in the South have, or know anyone who has, a farm-type quad that they are prepared to hire me (on my insurance) or drive for me? I have a few bags of material to drag up a steep lane and barrowing it is killing me. It would probably only take about an hour. I'm a mature driver with full, clean licence (including motorbike) and would pay a fair price to get this stuff shifted without any more heavy toil.
  6. (Looking clearly rattled) "If ever I can find which lever turns this thing off, I'll try to put my y-fronts back on again!"
  7. Only a bit of sense you see, because the numpties still come onto the roundabout from the south and so block entry from the B&Q side in any case! The Southern Numpties are not impressed!
  8. Albert, I think that's a tricky one, and may be a trifle difficult for them to understand.
  9. I'm sure that nobody on this thread wishes to accuse the jolly hard working chaps at the DoT, who are always so busy planting pretty signs and roundabouts, of being inefficient????
  10. I must have mised those. Where are they? Unlucky! You must still be in traffic queuing to get to them.
  11. If every driver had (through fear of instant large penalties being imposed) to indicate when approaching a roundabout, then all the drivers approaching the thousands of roundabouts that the DoT has scattered so liberally across the Island, would recognise the other drivers' intentions. Instead, everyone has to wait at every roundabout and see what happens, causing all the cars to tail back behind the "wait and sees". As a result the Island has become a dot to dot puzzle, with roundabouts as dots and all the dots connected by lines of cars with drivers just waiting to see the intentions of the drivers approaching the roundabouts.
  12. Didn't he write "Lesbian Seagull" while he was working here? I think it may have been the result of pier pressure. Much later, in 1997, he scaled the charts with it, a double-header single with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, from the Beavis and Butthead film soundtrack. - Honest!
