    Long story, power cuts and a water dowser.

    If I had posted this when it started, it may have had the legs to match MK's fridge post. So i'll keep it short but you may get bored. Earlier this year, probably February time, I saw some damp patches on the left side outside wall of my house. Thought they would dry up but they didn't. We...

    The Pizza place

    Guy outside measuring up the piza place on the corner today. Can't believe they are having new windows fitted, so is it getting ready to be bricked up?

    31st January Newport at Home and a Disaster

    Serious Thread. 31st January 2014 Southend United play Newport County at home..... 61 years ago exactly; 31st January 1953 Southend United played Newport County at home. That night the worst floods ever to hit South East Essex killed over 60 people. Quite a coincidence that we are playing the...

    How our Parents/Grandparents coped with the War.

    Here we are it’s DoDtS’s summer saga. Totally non football related, but my attempt to understand how and what our forebears had to endure through the war in a series of extracts from the Southend Standards of the times. Not everybody’s cup of tea but if your not interested then don’t read it...

    Combi Boiler Pressure Help

    Chaps, Just had a new bathroom fitted and I am now noticing problems with the boiler. If we do not use the CH or HW for a couple of hours the pressure drops to almost 0. Now, the only way to get the pressure up again is to crank up the CH for about 10 mins, then turn the hot taps on full...

    Alternative view point

    I was listening to 5 live last Sunday just before the Swansea Arsenal game when whilst listening to various summarisers something one of them said made me think. Basically they were talking about the Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers and how he has fitted into the set up and style of play at the...

    Getting on my pips.

    So if the clinic that fitted/installed them wont remove them, the NHS will, which means because some woman wanted bigger tits weve all got to pay for her to get rid of them. ****ing ridiculous.

    Ok, just had a quote for some work that needs to be sorted on a house we're buying. Spoke to the guy and he reckons that it's 1 days work. Does that price seem reasonable?? Any help/advice gratefully received. j

    The 1953 Floods

    I hope the following is of some interest, on a Saturday afternoon in 1953 Southend United played a poor game of football, the crowd had a good old moan and then went home totally unaware of the disaster that would hit locally in a few hours time. Saturday 31st January 1953 Southend United 1-0...

    Now I Know What the Helmets For.

    Since joining my new company things have moved along in the recovery world for me. My gaffer is one of these chaps who wont ask you to do something he wouldn't or couldn't do himself which is in sharp contrast to the last lot. He loaths paperwork and if the true is told, sitting in his office...

    House alarms

    Having recently purchased and moved into Eastwood Palace, I'm after getting a decent house alarm fitted to my gaff. Can anyone recommend a suitable company?

    Gary Hooper

    Scored twice today for Celtic and looks like he has fitted in well to the Celtic team. Neil Lennon ran straight to him after the game and gave him a big hug. I'm pleased for the lad. (not for getting a hug)

    Adam Bouzid

    Is this guy the forgotten one!? Just can't see him getting much of a sniff at all this season. I mean, Easton gets injured and we have Bouzid, but instead, we go out and get Timlin in on loan. I'm not berating Timlin at all as i think he's fitted in and done a reasonable job. Is it that Sturrock...

    We all get them, we all have those days when you wish you could turn back the clock and stay in bed but where would be the fun in that. I knew it was coming because I had prior warning that there was no cover for sunday night and I had already been asked to help out. Not a major problem, I...
