Haven't seen one so hit me if there is one. i myself am going to Mr Pings in the Broadway for the all you can eat thing on Sunday. Anyone been there or had that before and tell me what...

    I'm sorry Mr Martin

    I was going to post this on the tread about the AGM, asking if anyone going along wanted to say a quick sorry to RM from me. Instead I have just decided to mentioned a slightly embarrasing encounter I had with Mr (and I think Mrs) Martin at the weekend. I was having breakfast in a cafe in...

    Question Best Indian restaurant in the SS area?

    Not sure if this has been done before but I am sure everyone has an opinion. I use the Mumtaz Mahal in Benfleet because it is a one minute walk from my house however the best I have sampled locally is probably the Gulshan near the Mecca Bingo. The one on Leigh Broadway (the name escapes me but...

    best chant of the day

    Being held at the entrance to Fulham Broadway station, a police woman on horse back with loud hailer was trying to explain why we were being held there, but was totally incoherent. A quick rendition of uwot uwot uwot uwot I found quite amusing:goodun:

    Top 50 film endings

    Thoughts? 50. The Blair Witch Project (1999) - The movie isn't particularly scary... at least until the last two minutes, which take the tension level from 10 to 100 at an exponential pace. The final seconds -- wherein a member of the cast is spotted, back turned and facing a corner, as an...

    First One Day International

    I stay up to the early hours using the likes of quizmania to help me stay awake. Dropping Rahul Dravid on 0 (Owais Shah) never a good idea, made me decide to fall asleep. Wake up to find we skittle them out for little over 200. We win the toss. Can't chase, don't even come anywhere...
