    Phone disasters

    A family member has lost their phone which was subsequently handed in after being found in a car park. It looks like it has been run over by a car. The phone rings when called but the screen is completely knackered. Vodafone want 190 sheets if they can repair or the 370 touch to replace. Any...
  2. If we had beaten Brentford.....

    When would the tickets had gone on sale, after yesterdays game was called off on Friday? Yesterday morning or today?. Either way, reckon there would have been disasters. Had it been yesterday in those freezing temps, some fans would have probably got hyperthermia!. Had it been today as the snow...

    FC - Season 24

    A new season arrives.....and I forgot to set orders! Luckily we're playing UGTF who are mid rebuild and having 6 all rounders means no real disasters. However one of our main bats has missed out and we have a trainee bowling. Shouldn't matter though. Opening week gates as rubbish as ever...

    Interview disasters.

    After a final interview last week I thanked the interviewers for their time and left certain that an offer would be forthcoming. Unfortunately I trod on a discarded ice lolly outside the building and slipped over in clear sight of hundreds of people. I'll let you know if I get an offer. Any...

    Something for separated or divorced Dads maybe? Or just to laugh/sympathise?

    After over 4 years of separation my divorce finally came through just before Christmas. Everything is now sorted and I can move on. However, something I find quite cathartic is writing... so I have penned a blog. I intend to update every 3/4 weeks and will share some gems from the...

    FC - Match 5

    Queens Park CC v ShrimperZone CC Made a mess of the toss today, thought it was Monday so based it on tomorrow's weather. Won it and am now batting in PCH with sunny tomorrow :dunce: No disasters as yet though and if this game turns out to be the draw I'm expecting then at least we'll...
  8. German Love Parade Festival

    Hi, I've just got back from the Love Parade festival in Germany over the weekend. 19 people died and hundreds more were injured, some seriously, due to overcrowding in the entrance to the festival. Firstly I'd like to say Rest In Peace to those that lost their lives and condolences to their...

    Conservative How Did Cameron Screw This Up?

    He was up against an anonymous public-schooled Am-Dram nobody and a one-eyed bear with all the charm of genital herpes. He had almost every popular newspaper throwing muck at his rivals and calling him a Man Of Steel or Our Last Great Hope, blowing the horn of bullpoop in the ears of the nation...

    Unlikely plumbing disasters.

    I got up at 4am this morning to find that a mouse had chewed through a plastic water pipe and left my kitchen resembling an episode of Das Boot. After isolating the supply it took me several hours to clean up the flood and I was two hours late for work. Has anyone else had a more unlikely...

    Blimey. We're quite good.

    WAS BILIC RIGHT? HAVE ENGLAND LOST THEIR 'ENGLISHNESS'? Well, if he meant that we no longer play artless, stone-age football, devoid of movement and guile, then he hit the nail on the head. If his idea of 'Englishness', is to canter through games as if the result has already been secured by the...

    BBC (& Sky) Gaza DEC Appeal Veto

    My view is that there is a very real humanitarian crisis going on in Gaza and that urgent medicine, food and shelter is great need. I've been reading CAFOD's blog from Palestine which has been a real eye opener and very personal account of exactly what has been going on. I know there must be...

    What to do when planes lose pressure?

    Well personally, I'd **** myself. But the BBC says you'd be better off doing this: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7582087.stm Handy advice there to remember when you're struggling to breathe, spiraling downward at a rapid rate and trying to watch the end of "The Bourne Ultimatum" on those tiny...

    OD - Week 8

    3rd place (me) at home to 6th place and expecting record OD receipts. My opps sit well below their true worth but have been focussing on FC knowing that if it comes to a play-off they will win it hands down. If he plays a full strength team it will be tough but I've turned him over in the past...

    Interview Disasters

    My mate was telling me the story of his first interview earlier, he was waiting in the office and decided he'd better lay some cable before going in. Unforrtunately the cable wasn't especially solid so he grabbed a load of loo roll for the clean up operation. When he drew the paper back it...
  17. Why are we still there?

    Why are we there? Enough is enough. It's time to reevaluate our involvement. Every day there are news reports about more deaths. Every night on TV there are photos of death and destruction. Why are we still there? We occupied this land, which we had to take by force, but it causes us...
