  1. Now I now this is nothing to do with canals which is why I posted it in the pub ! I saw this boat last week in Newport Rhode Island Could this be too much engine ? 3x350hp !
  2. Perhaps not a name for a pub in England but how about The Sunburnt Arms !
  3. Love England's starting front row tonight - good for at least 15 penalties - Marler will lamp someone , Hartley will get sent off for any of about 10 different infringements and Cole will get binned for not driving straight - going to be fun !
  4. If you have ever been under any illusions about how slimy journalists can be just have a quick watch of this! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-21732971
  5. Not meaning to sound an expert but under current rules a prisoner can be released on a Home Detention Curfew ( "Tagging") up to 135 days prior to the half way point of their sentence so:- 12 months could be as little as 6 weeks with a tag and 18 months could be about 4.5 months
  6. A very bold shout !
  7. Just for fun would anyone like to guess at these sentences today? My guess:- Huhne – 3 months suspended for 2 years (because he pleaded guilty) Pryce – 4 months custodial.
  8. Starter for 10 He gets 3 months suspended for 12 months She gets 4 months custodial.
  9. One of the greatest incidents in history of "shooting yourself in the foot" !
  10. I have a Admiral multi-car policy. Whenever it is up for renewal, I run all three cars individually through the on-line compare sites, this year I saved over £400 across three cars that Admiral just rolled over on. Very annoying that you have to waste 2 hrs of your life playing this charade every year, but £400 is £400 ! Another tip I told them that my wife was the main driver of my car ( which she is ) and that saved another £70 !
  11. 600 years since one retired ! They must be well out of pratice at leaving do's for Popes. I wonder what format they take? - do think they have a leaving card and collection? - what do you buy a Pope as a leaving gift ?
  12. Slightly different slant in my household - the card,flowers and chocolate saving is spent on a good bottle of red wine that we share together - at least it's red which is in keeping with the occassion.
  13. St Clements is my favourite - Orange Juice and Bitter Lemon - large glass lots of ice.
  14. If opposite is not across the water I would suggest the simple way is just with a long ethernet cable - you can probably get a 20 mtr one in Maplins !
  15. Have a look at this website www.accidentclaims.org About two-thirds of the way down the front page on the right is a testimonial you could probably do without ! CAUTION - text is of an adult nature.
