    Fort Lauderdale airport shooting: Five people shot dead by Florida gunman

    I was going to put this into Homer's Bar but decided it probably belonged here. Leaving aside the immediate devastating impact of this event, I was absolutely astonished that passengers are allowed to carry guns in their luggage on American airlines. Listening to 'experts' yesterday it seems...

    Video Editing software

    Now the footballs nearly over and I'm looking for something to cure the boredom, Mrs Fred suggested that I produce an edited version of our 2012, yes that long ago, Florida holiday videos. She bought me some software 2 years ago (Magix Movie Edit Pro 2014 Premium) to edit them with but I just...

    International Driving Permit - Florida

    Off to Florida soon and had an email from the villa owner saying I had to get an International Driving Permit as its a new law introduced on the 1st Jan 2013 but hardly publicised. Never heard of it and checked RAC and Post Office but both say recommended only. However the AA site shows : R –...

    Exiled Shrimpers - Living Abroad

    So since I found out that I'm moving abroad myself in half a year's time, it has dawned on me that there are quite a lot of internationally-exiled Shrimpers on SZ. I've always known the fact, but never really thought about it until I found out that I'll be joining your ranks in supporting Blues...

  13. International 'Burn a Koran Day'

    A small church in Florida are having a "burn a koran" day, where they invite people to roll up, and burn the religious book of Islam. So what's everyone's thoughts? IMO, why stop there? get shot of all religions and be done with it. Can see the Islamic nutcases wanting retrobution for...

    Scottish Cup Final; Ross County v Dundee Unitred

    There's only one place to be this weekend. West Stand at Hampden Park. It's another Highland Clearance. Dingwall, a town of just 5,200, and Ross & Cromarty barely making it past 20,000. It's going to be a relatively empty part of the UK come Saturday, though, with over 17,000 descending on...

    Looking at booking a decent holiday sometime later in the year - anyone recommend somewhere decent? Looking for a quiet, relaxing beach type holiday - ideally no kids around! So far, looked at; 1) Sandals - quite expensive and not meant to be as good as advertised. Lots of beach weddings and...

    2010 season

    Ah, spring training. The sound of rubber or cork wrapped in yarn and covered with leather thumping into leather mitts or the rifle crack of corked ash. Ahhh. There is something magical about the phrase "pitchers and catchers report". It sounds so innocent but at the same time so alluring. I'm...

    Hadleigh Olympic events - whinging old gits not consulted.

    Grey army outrage over Hadleigh Olympic events. Is it me or is Hadleigh rapidly overtaking Florida as the retirement venue of choice?

    X-Files Special: Prince of Wales really is a Charlie

    From Mark Steyn writing on NRO: According to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, we only have 96 months left to save the planet. I’m impressed. 96 months. Not 95. Not 97. July 2017. Put it in your diary. Usually the warm-mongers stick to the same old drone that we only have ten years left...

    Things Could Get Messi

    Whenever there's a hurricane warning in Florida, the news stations show the same footage. Plucky Americans frantically nailing two-by-fours across their windows, occasionally turning round to look in trepidation at the gathering storm behind them. From the safety of your own front room, you...

    FC - Matchday 5

    Well here it is, the day of my much awaited (for me) title decider back to back FC. I am 7 points clear of second and playing him at his but on my favourite dusty track. 2020 has helped him get some fitness back but he still has a couple of players with serious issues that will help me if needed...
