    Tories responsible for Britain's recent flooding

    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...
  5. Random pipe thread.

    All, Need a bit of building advice - I've been bashing off (ooer) some quite revolting plasterwork that the previous owner put over two fireplaces in my house. Now on the side of one, I uncovered a copper pipe that doesn't get hot when I put the central heating on. There's no gas fire nearby...

    Barrett telling it like it is

    Was great to hear Barrett's interview after the Swindon defeat, laying the facts on the line and showing his passion a bit more of this and the wins will come flooding in, hopefully him and M'voto can build a partnership now and add that solidity with Herd coming in for White Now we have...
  8. King Flintoff Ends Aussie Reign

    Australia's 75 year reign at Lords came tumbling down with a whimper, as King Flintoff gave England victory on the back of his first five wicket haul at the ground. Nothing could suppress the nerves at the Home of Cricket this morning, a terrific stand of 185 between Michael Clarke and Brad...

    Question Wedding day dilemas - Am I being out of order.

    Mrs DtS and I are quite frankly at loggerheads. The wedding of the decade - no sorry century is now just 5 weeks and 3 days away. All appears to be done except the fact I have no ring, suit or speech but hey plenty of time. About six months ago we went to see my good friend and SZ poster (And...

  11. Supporting Southend

    As a kid growing up I found myself supporting Arsenal. Watching them lift the Cup Winners Cup started this short love affair with a big gun. At this time I had never even heard of Southend United. Even tho my grandad supported them he never spoke of the mighty blues, having supported them...

    Swapping mobile phone providers.

    I have been with Orange since I was 18 and never found them too bad to be honest. However since I have moved in with Mrs DtS I can no longer get a signal at home which has gone beyond a joke. Had a blazing row with some Northern Dullard and the long and shot of it despite being in my contract I...

But PINK STËËL's rightful place in the great book of Gay Heavy Metal has been 20 years in the making. "These guys are the gay Id, flooding the world with...

    Worst Job

    I think we have had this one before but never mind..... After being booted out of University I was lucky enough to get a job in a sponge factory. In fact they made just about every cleaning product you can name, sponges, scourers, j-cloths etc. etc. I did many jobs such as making j-cloth...

    Flood Defences

    I was watching the BBC this morning, and they were talking about building on Flood Plains. It got me thinking, could the flood risk at Fossetts Farm cause us to "lose" the public enquiry? I vaguely remember the Environment Agency being somewhat concerned about the level of the flood...

    British! What a joke.

    Just been to the British High Commission in Malta to apply for our baby's first passport. They accepted the papers etc. but then phoned me after saying that they had made an oversight. It transpires that, even though I am Bristish and have always been such, the fact that I was not born in...
