Re: General Chit Chat

I'm glad faith is a comfort to those who have it but it's worth remembering others don't and they have their reasons. Accepted and respected as it always should be, Pru. No offence intended. It's a very stressful time for us all. Like I said, each to his own and my post had only good intention. F a...

Re: General Chit Chat

Now is the time to pray before you go to bed. Much can be gained with nothing to lose. I urge you to spare just a few minutes to pray it will end soon. Think of all the poor kids in the world. Laugh at me if you will, but as a lifetime Christian, I believe.You should too. Pray to God who is mightie...

My enforced isolation ended last night so today I went to the grocery store. Massive line-up so I went home to voluntary isolation.

Re: General Chit Chat

Speaking as an elderly parent, I should note that over here the first hour supermarkets are open is reserved for the elderly so they don't get knocked over in the toilet paper section. Do you have the same thing there? Yeah, we've got a similar thing here Monty. The elderly, carers, the disabled et...

Re: General Chit Chat

Excuse me, do you not have a fridge or freezer or do you just buy odd bits and dine out/take away? something not right about this, a critical care nurse bursting into tears over no veg hardly inspires you with confidence. Currys are currently out of stock of fridge freezers due to reprehensible, se...

And we call toilet roll hoarders! Just read there is a 68% increase in gun sales in some US states
US buy guns, Netherlands have been queuing round the block for weed, we do bog rolls.
Actually toilet paper is being hoarded all over North America too.

Re: Today I'm neither Angry nor Happy about....

Tomorrow I'm off for my usual week in the Caribbean sun. Normally, I'd be happy but this corona virus stuff makes one a little nervous about travel. Being nearly as old as Tango I'm in the at risk category, but I've had a good innings. I even saw us win the FA Cup (on tv). :wink: You've got cases i...

Re: The Politics Thread

I think the underlying assertion here is that something called God, determines gender based on whether you have nuts and a willy or whether you don't. But God also created how an individual views their own sexuality (if you believe in such stuff). So we appear to have a bit of a God dilemma, do we ...

A girl news reader in her twenties ranting on about what a legend Harry Gregg was.....? I'm too young to have seen Harry Gregg play.

It works really well in reducing crime in countries that have it :roll: Actually they don't really do enough of them so world flake opinion is not brought down upon them. Why on earth anyone wants to pay and constantly fail to rehabilitate these scumbags is way past belief. See if that worked the w...

Re: The Politics Thread

The owners of the pub nearest mine (one that I walk past to get to the good one) have taken it upon themselves to fly Union flags, not just from their pub but from all surrounding railings etc. Who the feck do they think they are? Their lunch special will be chlorine washed chicken I expect. Enjoy.

Re: General Chit Chat

Double barrelled surnames. It's going through a bit of a vogue when people get married to retain both parties' name as a new surname (all a bit fdcking stupid in my book). Anyone knows wtf happens when their offspring Chantel Widget Handler marries Kyle Jones Smith? Do their kids end up getting cal...

Re: TW Members. Introspection on an Epic scale.

All the best, bish. I spent a week in hospital in the summer of 2018 with a heart problem. They put a pacemaker in and I've been right as rain ever since. Of course I have to take blood thinners every day - eternity pills we call them. So I hope you have as speedy a recovery as I did.
