    Real life creepy stories

    So, last Friday night, driving back at 4am from Gatwick, and we had to slow right down, because there in the middle of the road, was two deer. Just looking in at us. Creeped us right out - we slowly moved past them - never seen them this far into town before - very odd. What's been your real...

    Essex 2015

    Still no fixtures in Southend (booooo) but thought it worth start a thread for Essex's next failed tilt at promotion. One interesting titbit I have seen this week is that our away T20 clash with Middlesex (July 10th) will be played at Richmond rather than Lord's. Nice little ground at the Old...

    Illuminated garden reindeer

    Anyone know where I can pick up a couple of these on the cheap? I am looking for a touch of festive class to compliment the crazy paving and block driveway. Homebase and B&Q do them but I am looking at over a ton for an adult plus calf. They are going on my garage roof so quality is an issue...
  5. Describe your journey to work.

    Reading the saddlers thread got me thinking about my bad old days of being stuck in traffic and stuff and made me realise just how damn lucky i really am so i thought how do most zoners travel to work and is the trip as nice as mine. Yesterday i was working half a hour away from home and there...
  6. A word or two of caution for the festive season

    All employees planning to dash through the snow in a one horse open sleigh, going over the fields and laughing all the way are advised that a Risk Assessment will be required addressing the safety of an open sleigh for members of the public. This assessment must also consider whether it is...

    Why don't I feel Christmassy yet?.....

    .....because I've realise what a ******* Santa is, that's why. I mean, aside from the dubious idea of an elderly man entering the bedrooms of sleeping children and emptying his sacks, what else does he do? Think about it: 1) Parking offences - how many parking tickets must he pick up with his...

    Does The Big C Make You A Big C?

    I'm just in from my daily walk. Despite the cold my face is burning up. Although the wander was a modest one, to Southchurch Park, the seafront and then back home, my body aches all over and I'm far too tired for a bloke of my age to be. You see, people, I have cancer - and I'm fare more...
  9. Best FILM Actors

    Having just watched the making of the new film "Stardust" which looks right up my street and stars this man, I was wondering who is your favourite male actor... For me in the modern day, it has to be Robert De Niro, from the Godfather, The Deer Hunter , Goodfellows and Cape Fear to name but a...

    Yesterday I bought 8 legs of venison for £250.00, does anyone think that was two deer?:confused:
  11. The (Very Long) Diary of a Happy Fan

    Tuesday 3rd - Just come back from the pub, nice chat with Ron Mack, told him that I couldn't afford any more trips to watch the Blues this season, especially as out of 5 trips I had managed 2 draws and 3 defeats. Friday 6th - Incredible, just told my son that I hoped we wouldn't give away an...

    Makes you think ...

    A stranger was seated next to a little girl on the airplane when the stranger turned to her and said, "Let's talk. I've heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger." The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and said to the...
