  1. The might actually make some money this time.
  2. I missed them last year as they'd moved them up from May Hill to the Gooseneck, I only got a latecomer and a few of the EVO/Scooby mob.
  3. Mission


    I've tried the cardboard cotton buds, they're useless by comparison. I'm all for being green but only if it doesn't affect the performance of a product.
  4. I saw him entering Rhumsaa this morning.
  5. Buy the Alfa, buy the Alfa. They're much better cars these days, and it's the prettiest of the bunch that you have mentioned.
  6. I was out Monday and Thursday so gave Friday a miss Both nights seemed quiet for the time of year in the two restaurants we attended. Nice to see things becoming a bit more civilised, I've never got the whole let's go out looking for a fight mentality.
  7. They're very tasty. I like them in sandwiches straight from the grill.
  8. Mission


    Bit ironic using a sock to slag off other socks surely?
  9. Mission

    Round Pound

    We're just separating them out as we take them in and once we've got £20 worth, bagging them up and putting them in with the banking. Doesn't take too long to do and at least they're out of circulation then.
  10. Maybe they've yet to find a thread that interests them enough to post in?
  11. Lots of the shops in Ramsey are open on Christmas Eve as well.
  12. Mission


    I can't see them having been banned tbh.
  13. In the same vein as 'Remember South Ramsey', remember Mount Murray...
  14. Meanwhile on Broadway (with running commentary).
  15. I had to brush two snowflakes off my jacket this morning and it took an extra 3 minutes to collect my bap from the bap shop, carnage!
  16. According to 3FM, it's a team of 12.
  17. Good to know this place is staying for a bit longer, keep up the good work Mods.
  18. Well surely you just offer new contracts under revised terms? Normal working hours for a Museum in general would be weekends, if the staff don't like it maybe they should work elsewhere?
  19. That's the government spy team, monitoring your browsing patterns and thread clicks / contributions.

    New Rules

    Scrolling through my FB feed the other day and I see MF had made the news. Curiosity got the better of me so I popped in for a skeet and saw this thread. It's a real shame that the team are giving serious consideration to closing the place down but quite frankly, I don't blame them. I stopped posting long before the current batch of idiots and it was bad enough then so I can't imagine how bad must have become to reach this point. Having read this thread, it seems like there is still a strong desire to keep the place running from the perspective of the long standing members and a few have suggested adding new moderators to take off some of the pressure of the existing team. How many would actually put themselves forward though? It's a great idea but actions speak louder than words and it probably needs the more experienced posters to step up to the plate rather than a bunch of newbies who don't fully understand the dynamics of the forum. If all else fails, I'll happily wield the ban hammer until this problem goes away. There are Shopwatch schemes in both Douglas and Ramsey. If you get banned in one shop, you are automatically banned in all of the others in the scheme. If someone refuses to leave your store, you just call the Police and they will come and remove them.
  21. They actually get coaches calling in there, whole bloody coachloads of people, regularly too!
  22. I do hope they've remembered to put on extra buses for the Festival of Jurby tomorrow. The queues last year were epic.
