  1. It will be interesting to hear e-rivers and Nigel Moores comments on this.
  2. Generally, you sit down, and then...... I think Junior has the instructions.☺
  3. You can, you just have to give the Newcy Brown a miss........
  4. Nicola Sturgeon is touring Perthshire in the First Minister's chauffeur driven car. They round a sharp corner and hit a cow which has strayed out onto the road. They hit it full on and the car comes to a stop. Nicola in her usual jaunty manner, says to the chauffeur : " You get out and check - you were driving." The chauffeur gets out, checks and reports that the animal is dead. " You were driving, go and tell the farmer," says Nicola, I can't afford to be blamed for anything. The chauffeur walks up the drive to the farmhouse and returns five hours later totally plastered, his hair ruffled and with a big grin on his face. " My God, what happened to you ?" asks Nicola. The chauffeur replies : " When I got there, the farmer opened his best bottle of malt whisky, the wife gave me a slap up meal and the daughter made love to me." " What on earth did you say?" asks Nicola. I knocked on the door and when it was answered, I said to them, I'm Nicola Sturgeon's chauffeur and I've just killed the cow."
  5. But they don't, ISIS, Daish or whatever seeing as Al Quaeida has run out of credit always claim responsibility or say it's one of their soldiers who has achieved their aim. The Muslim Council of sensible PR people always condemns it, looks like their message isnt quite followed by a good percentage of their religious kin.
  6. That's quite a lot of letters to write on a short cabin side........ Lovely little tug, I passed it last Tuesday below Buckby and gave the owner a wave later whilst painting when he came past with a smile on his face.
  7. I have had this many times, the funniest was at Atherstone one morning 7am ish, where I was told NOT to move any further from lock 4 until CRT arrived as the boat in lock 3 couldn't go any further or fill lock from the pound by the allotments. I walked up and started to run water down from the top and had the very agitated lock 3 boater pleading with me to wait for CRT who said they would be there by 8.30am. Up top and out by 8am, they then had the cheek to ask me to stay until CRT arrived to explain what had happened and apologise for ringing them.
  8. We've had a mooring for 2 months so can't comment. I will let you know in April
  9. Perhaps you should defeat by wit, debate and skill rather than just keep wittering on about a poster you have a fixation on. I am quite sure that our CWDF software would be able to spot Onionbargee if he was still using the same kit he used to, if not, then it's more difficult. If it is indeed him,He also brings to debate some issues of CRT management having been proven untruthful and bullying in their non issue of licence. I also see nothing in theT&C of joining this site that Rich has to admit to MTB that he has previously been someone else. I'm sure Lala Minnow will be along shortly to back me up on this.
  10. They do indeed , I occasionally like to look for my boat and it appears more than just a few times. I am currently at Bugbrooke in 2009 without solar panels and also at Yelvertoft 2016 with a full set for example.
  11. Speshly not when it's dull of oats
  12. If it isn't a terrorist incident, there will be one along soon. We have been both well protected by our intelligence and police forces so far, along with lucky.
  13. Not necessarily...
