    First Gigs

    Was looking at the Gigs thread and saw someone say they wish they could have gone to the Damned gig and got me thinking about the first gigs I went to. Was only just turned 16 for the first one, seems young to have travelled all the way to London with just a mate these days! First three: 1...

    Telephone Sockets

    We're currently having a lot of work done on our house. One of the jobs was to remove all the old telephone sockets and wiring, and install a new telephone socket in the lounge. The guy who did it has done a really good job. We now only have one cable from the junction box inside the house...

    The Clock Ticks On

    From Mark Steyn: The world divides into those who sincerely believe in that "Coexist" sticker and those who think it's a delusional evasion. After all, if it weren't for that big Muslim crescent "C" at the front, you wouldn't need a bumper sticker at all: That peace-symbol "O"? It's Muslims...

    Mixed emotions and a You Tube plea

    When I say mixed I am obviously well over the moon. 750 am here and I am buzzing. I can't tell you how good today will be. I was supposed to stream this game but it just didn't happen. Shattered through work but I was awake on and off and had the zone on iPhone and BBC on IPad. When I saw that...

    Car Thieving Scum

    And so where do we always return...? Having had a period of lurking (partly due to the busy-ness of getting hitched on 15th Feb), I haven't been as active of late. I'm still here. And my reasons for posting? I woke up this morning to find my car stolen, from the drive. No signs of entry (broken...

    Megan Stammers

    Has anyone else noticed the glaring hole in this story? Megan was reported missing when she didn't turn up for school Friday morning, but the CCTV footage of the pair of them getting on the ferry was from 9.30 Thursday night. So, why didn't her parents report her missing Thursday night? At...
  9. Kevin Hogg


    A couple of weeks ago we were all very aware that a goalkeeper and CM player with bite..were required. We still need to bolster the midfield. There were few alarm bells around defensive or attacking options. On paper we look okay both at the back and upfront. However, there seems an issue about...

    Game on TV for me - on delay

    Oz TV showing the match tomorrow morning at 5-30am about 2 hours delayed. So, no phone on, no Twitter, no forum and no Facebook for me. Mind you a 5-15 alarm is a bit better than a 3-15 one so it's not too bad. Come On Southend!

    Biggest Bunny Boiler

    A few years back my mate came back to find his ex-girlfriend in his flat wearing his clothes and sitting on his sofa saying she'd decided to move back in. This was three months after they had split up and in the intervening time she had bombarded him with a mixture of abusive texts and...
  17. Ron Martin - whats the view now

    Just thought I'd ask the question to see what people think now about Uncle Ron.In the beginning there was a fair amount of scepticism about his motives, and that scepticism may well remain today. I number myself amongst the early sceptics, developer takes over a Southend, alarm bells rang...
