Congratulations to the lass; that's a pretty decent achievement.

I didn't know that Britain hadn't won such an event before. May it be the first of many.

Happy birthday, blurred I gave up thinking about birthdays years ago. I've finally managed to get my children to ignore mine - thank heavens. Now I'm working on Christmas. After all, what's a birthday anyway? Just another number on the odometer of life, that's what. I adopted the old adage 'you're ...

Is this the same Croatia that even Australia held to a 2-2 draw in the W.C.?

Thanks, sluffy. A good few memories there. I particularly like the Moonlight Sonata (one of my favourite pieces of music when in a melancholy mood).

Hello, Gertie. When you said 'get more people to work from home' I thought you meant transport them. That's not a bad idea (my misinterpretation I mean) provided that they have a significant number of employees. Many years ago I worked in Sydney for a bank. For a pretty long period we had transport ...

Here the general usage is BLT, though some use BLD. It's rare for 'dinner' to be used to describe a midday meal. 'Trousers', 'pants', 'strides', 'daks' (or dacks), 'slacks' for two (long) legged apparel. Knickers are ladies underwear but, not being an expert in the field, I can say little other than...

The best work experience is real work. Weekends or whenever you can fit it in to your arduous study schedule. The bonus is that you get paid for having fun. The down side of that is of course that you do have to work and take responsibility for your efforts. I used to own a shop and when work experi...

Re: Samhater's grand day out

We raised a glass to our ardent supporter absent friends from afar, Dujon, Monty, Faninoz and American Trotter etc and it was another grand day. :mrgreen: If you think that entitles you to some sort of pint sized refund, TANGO, you are dreaming. :D Thanks for the thoughts.

To answer your question, TANGO, I have no idea. What brings people to perpetrate such heinous acts is beyond my comprehension. One can, to an extent, understand inter-gang wars where guns are used and even the odd crime passionel , but this sort of premeditated slaughter is totally alien to me. Fort...

G'day, BC, welcome aboard. There're a dozen or so BWFC followers from Oz on the site. Some post more often than others though, so you may not meet them all in any great hurry.

What enticed you into following the Trotters, mate? I'm ex-Bolton - what's your excuse?

Thanks, CAPSLOCK. That'd be down towards Lea Gate then (left hand side heading to Bolton proper). There used to be a farm there in my day; Schofield's if memory serves me correctly (and well might not). Mind you, my old school has also been demolished *sob*. It used to stand on the other side of Lon...

Where the heck was The Precinct? It was apparently built after I left the place . . . it makes me feel old to think that something built ten years after my departure has already been demolished.

Such is progress. I wonder what's going to happen to the area now?

Ta, CAPSLOCK. I hadn't realised ('cos I'd never thought about it) that Humbrol and Airfix were one and the same. It makes sense I guess. I've still got a few cans of paint somewhere - no doubt if I dig them out they'll rattle if shaken. It will be interesting to see who owns the moulds and their des...

That's a darn shame, ratbert; thanks for the notification.

Perhaps some enterprising person will bid for the moulds if they have ...
