Re: LIVE LOCAL FOOTBALL SAT AUG 3

Come on chaps, Lancashire Lad's doing no harm. More than just a few on here have been to watch Chorley at Victory Park when we were 'gameless' and enjoyed a fine afternoon mingling with the Magpies' fans. From what I have read those who did attend remarked on the family friendliness of the venue and...

Re: Science, Experiment, and the failure of Reality.

To you, TANGO, and your star map question. The majority of star maps that include your part of the northern hemisphere and are centred roughly on your location put you at the centre of the map and are marked outside the circle, which indicates your horizon (excluding obstructions) with the four card...

Re: Science, Experiment, and the failure of Reality.

Spotty, is this the unit of which you speak? http://www.flybird.co.uk/helios_evostar_458_2.htm It looks like a decent sort of kit. If the objective lens (150mm) is tucked in the forward end of that tube, then it's a formidable piece of equipment, including a decent mount. Is chromatic aberration a p...

Ah, Spotty, you uneducated Europeans never cease to amaze me (no wonder some of you support Brexit) of course they are. I must also apologise to Mr Iles for misspelling his family name - most embarrassing. :oops: Anyway, it's good to meet a fellow who admires the celestial sphere and the scientists ...

Re: Science, Experiment, and the failure of Reality.

Of course it is, Spotty; Just like Isles' and others predictions published re the demise or otherwise of BWFC. As far as astronomy and cosmology is concerned I have always had reservations about the publishing of the Cepheid variable stars being used as a 'candle' and being incontrovertible. Likewis...

Re: Administration and recovery

I am, as Perfan used to say (she seems to be a retired member these days) "confuserated" BWFC or its holding companies relative to the ownership of both the Club itself and the White's hotel via other links to BWFC: In other words does the Club own the hotel? Or perhaps the other way around? Given t...

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

That was the flukiest win I recall for a result an any form of cricket. What the heck is this final resolution based on the number of boundaries scored by a side? It's worse than penalty kicks in football. :hang:

Re: Tennis, anyone.....?

How about 'blow football', Spotty. Does a jet of air constitute a modified stick?

Crikey, until you posted that I hadn't thought about blow football for many a decade. Silly old me. :)

Re: Tennis, anyone.....?

Most of us here, TANGO, still think that he is a spoiled brat who wants attention, even though he is a damned good player and has, probably, the talent to make his mark in the world of tennis. Likewise, Bernard Tomic, another Australian. Perhaps they will go down in history as the "Terrible Twins". ...

Re: General Chit Chat

You can only do what you can, GG, and it sounds like you're doing that. I had to chuckle at the milk in bottles comment, I suppose that they are available here somewhere, but I haven't come across them for years. We used to buy milk in the plastic containers but have now changed to the cardboard, re...

Re: General Chit Chat

No, GG, your efforts, like mine, add together in our attempt to reduce our current impact on the world at large. There are just two of us, but there is many a million who accompany us. I am not a rabid 'global change' follower by the way, but it makes sense to conserve what we have and try not to da...
