    100 years and we have another Gold. Next time a full Manx team to lead Cav out, he may be a bit old by then (31) but we could do it with all the youngsters coming on. Let 'Pokerstars' have the old summerland site where they can build a velodrome with offices elsewhere on the site.
  3. Yea but in Manks there is no X.
  4. You bunch of people you. Manks as a spoken/written and taught language should be held up in the highest esteem. We have a guy from Aus wishing to speak Gaeilc. He didn't realise he was going to come across so much shit on a forum. If you English speakers wish to dis-assiciate yourselves from us then thats fine, but don't put people off learning the language of Mann

  6. Cypman, the MEA use a warehouse opposite where Malew engineering used to be but it is rented by G4S. It's not on Balthane
  7. I did sign on once back in 1977 ish, because I had left my employment I couldn't get any money for 6 weeks I found a job in 5 weeks. It was at the Douglas carpet factory (if you are old enough to remember) but I have never taken a penny from the state and I don't intend to start now.
  8. Nah I won't sign on. I prefer the option of working for what I have, not being given it for sitting on my ass and watching shite on TV
  9. G4S have a warehouse in Ballasalla The MEA doesn't.
  10. Listening to the radio today there were people who were commenting on the amount of staff in the showrooms 24. They didn't take into account the 6 of us in repairs and only 1 employee in the warehouse, the rest in the warehouse are G4s employee's
  11. Yes I do but I would much prefer to be employed
  12. Bollox. I know the company won't appreciate me saying this but I am one of the people being made unemployed. I and my work colleagues have tried to give a good service repairing appliances that have broken down. I am gutted at losing my job, do I now go to the Government and ask for hand outs to help with my rent and bills. or because I am of the generation that doesn't sponge of the state do I set up by myself?
  13. The appliance repair workshop shuts the same time as the showrooms.
  14. This morning whilst driving along the Gansey I was overtaken by a silver Honda hu da va. There was at least five cars behind me and two in front, I heard this roar of a car and watched as it passed me by. There was a for sale sign in the rear window but I couldn't get the details cos it passed me so quickly, I ain't going to buy this car because the engine is obviously half raced (well thrashed anyway) You know when you look at a car overtaking and think, well I hope you meet another vehicle coming the other way, Well he didn't but I still thought. You have to leave for work earlier, stop
  15. I asked the neighbours and only one of them had seen the van and heard the diatribe. Are these the same people who are wandering around PE in grey Hoodies?
  16. For the past couple of nights I have heard someone in the Erin way area driving around spouting something from a tannoy, has anyone any idea what this is about?
  17. I got caught nicking 'black jacks' and 'mojos' from the sweet shop in dalton street. One hiding from dad ensued. Cunninghams the decorators were on the terrace. Mr C still lives on Brighton terrace.
  18. Unfortunately 'Little it of Rosie' are against 'Red gap' It's a no brainer who will win that contest. Red gap every time.

    Mlc Election

    So I take it that 'Planet Cook' has been pulled from CBBC to allow him the time. Will MLC now stand for Must Learn Cooking? He was crap as a chef.
  20. My Father had a stroke, which the medical profession said he would not recover from, he did to a degree and lived another 8 years. Sometime during one night he vomited and inhaled the vomit, this caused his lungs to all but give up. He was being kept alive by a myriad of machines. His biggest desire was to see his 80th birthday, he missed it by 1/2 hour. During my last visit to him I was asked whether the medical staff should carry on administering drugs and keep him alive or should they just let him go. I told them that for his sake he should be allowed to die. This was the biggest decision
  21. Mr Cod's had the sexiest boss in Douglas. I'm blessed if I can remember her name, but she came from Laxey, Susanne? Hope Street Chippy did the best burgers in the mid seventies. As an apprentice I used to get sent there by 'Pretty Kelly' or 'Julian' What about the frothy coffee in 'Leisureland' Yellow leatherette seating, Tomato sauce encrusted tomatoes on the table. No sign of any murders there unlike the 'Golden egg' Sunday evening, after the flicks had kicked out, run down Strand street to the 'Neptune' take away or leg it up through town to 'Sums' chippy 'Very skinny chips'
  22. Balls! Wish I had seen or heard of this earlier. I love the stuff this man has written. I have the Fleetwood Mac 'Men of the world' album which covers all the early stuff. Damn damn damn and blast.
  23. Well today I went to a funeral. He shouldn't have died at his young age. I didn't blub at the ceremony, which quite surprised me. The turn out was wonderful. Think that may have been the best funeral in Kirk Michael. It was difficult talking to Anne at the end of the ceromony. I couyld only say that I was a work mate, And we would miss him. I hate it when people disappear from your life. Peace be with you Rob You will never be forgotten.
