  1. Traditions on Christmas Eve

    Morning all, I was just having a chat with one of my colleagues and we were talking about what traditions we do on Christmas eve. We normally accumulate a lot of chocolate, nuts, biscuits etc. for a table which we cannot touch before Christmas eve. I also watch the following films without...
  2. Discontinued Chocolate bars that you miss

    Hi all, apologies for the random subject but me and my fiancée have been talking about chocolate bars that we miss. I remember having a chocolate bar that I really loved but some the life of me I can't remember what it was. It has been really bugging me! I was born in the 90's and don't...

    Film Remakes - Better or Worse

    I suppose this could be better as a set of polls but posting in the Wilder thread got me thinking Remakes that should never have happened Willi Wonka and the Chocolate Factory The Italian Job Remakes that were better than the original Total Recall King Kong both 76 and 95 improved on previous...

    Monday Night Noxious Club

    At the risk of upsetting Berrichonne Shrimper with my unfettered ego, I'd like to tell you about a radio show that I'm kicking off tomorrow night on The Source 96.1FM. As TravelZoners will know, I like to get a bit of Shrimpers-related stuff into my public service broadcasting and I hope to find...

    Half Time Snack Shop South Stand

    What a joke at the snack shop at the South Stand today. Queue a mile long, ran out of hot chocolate, ran out of hot water and I saw one of the women chuck a bowl of what I can only assume was Luke warm tap water into the water heater and then continue to make drinks with it! Would not be...

    Recent DIY wins

    I recently noticed the pressure gauge reading low on my combi boiler. I re-pressurized the system only to notice the pressure drop off again over the next few days. This pointed to a leak in the central heating system which could have involved ripping up newly laid floors at worst and at best...

    Bodybuilding protein drinks.

    Does anyone else think these take a lot of the pleasure out of eating protein? Why don't they do them in meat flavours such as steak, chicken, bacon etc. instead of chocolate, strawberry and banana?

    Is Easter being hijacked?

    I see that many so-called Christians are now trying to claim that Easter is something to do with the death of Jesus. In Britain we have known for years that the true meaning of Easter is about scoffing hot cross buns and chocolate eggs. First they take over Christmas, now Easter- where will it...

    Sean Penn on the Falklands Islands

    "Last year I went to Falklands. Before the British showed up, it was a happy place. They had flowery meadows and rainbow skies, and rivers made of chocolate, where the children danced and laughed and played with gumdrop smiles."

    What do you buy an 80 year old for his birthday?

    Hi All, My Grandad has his 80th coming up! He lives alone. He has loved sport all throughout his life. He is a lot less nimble now, with a fragile memory to say the least. He never likes a fuss to be made. But it's his 80th. Most likely his last big birthday celebration... What can I do that...

    Your ultimate biscuit barrell?

    Last night during half time of the England game the Mrs suprised me by whipping out a very nice shortbread type biscuit with a chocolate top. It really made for a most pleasant half time. This lead to a bid debate as you can imagine between us over the best biscuits? So my question is if you...

    Will you use Pre Pay cards?

    What crackpot thought up this stupid idea? The owners of Southend United must be deliberately trying to send the club skint. Mine dropped through the door today, and what it basically means is that from the Brentford game no cash can be spent at the West Stand concessions from then onwards...

    Those office workers...

    What do you have for lunch everyday? Mine as standard is Jacket cheese and beans. - £1.90 from work. Then we have a little meal deal place which is baguette crisps and can of drink for 2.75. or I go for the tesco £2 meal deal. This is often not enough and is shortly followed by a chocolate...
