  1. Gas & Electricty supplier fake phone call

    Just a heads up, about 10am I recieved an answerphone message in respect to supplying my gas & electricity readings to an 0844 number or a website - and nowhere in the call did they say the name of my supplier. So, I called my supplier and then indicated that no readings are due (I in fact did...

    Energy bills

    Boring subject but I am paying around £150 a month from British gas for gas and electricity in a four bed detached house with cavity and loft insulation. Sounds miles too steep to me unless my neighbour is running a cannabis farm off my supply. Is anyone getting a better deal?
  3. Air strikes in Syria

    The US have launched a missile attack on a Syrian air base. May and Fallon agree with this action, not sure about Corbyn. This is different to the standard attack on the ME as Syria has the backing of Russia and China so does have the possibility to escalate. After the WOMD lie in Iraq, I...

    Abuse of Ranger

    As I couldn't get tickets to join all the other Southend supporters on Saturday against the Wombles, myself and my good lady had to watch among the home side. We were among the crowd at the other end of the Fartgas stand and used a series of pre-arranged covert hand signals to show our angst or...

    Does Hell give off heat or does it absorb it?

    "Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)? Support your answer with a proof." This was an actual question given on a University of Washington chemistry midterm: Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas cools off when it expands and...

    Southend Energy

    Some friends of ours have just changed over from their current energy provider (gas and electricity) to Southend Energy and reckon they are saving money as a result. I've had a look at the company on the web and have lifted the bit below. Anyone already done this, and are they any good...

    The number of cars without road tax has doubled since the disc was scrapped. Put the bloody road tax on petrol. Those who use the roads more will pay more. Gas guzzling cars will pay more.

    Dodgy decisions in the play off finals

    I'm watching the Gas - Grimsby P/off final. The Rovers keeper should have gone for handball with Grimsby 1 up, even more clear than my first impression when watching it live. Rovers are now all square and look the more likely to edge it imo. God I hope we do not suffer from anything iffy on...

    Best gas BBQ

    I need a new gas BBQ. Has anyone got any recommendations or seen any good deals recently? My current BBQ is the Outback Spectrum 3 which is a piece of **** and has rusted/fallen apart like a Chinese motorbike despite being kept under a cover. I am disappointed also to find the Wagner Char King...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 2-0 Mansfield Town

    Great performance, took our foot off the gas in the second half possibly with an eye on Monday and really it could have been 3 or 4 but in the end 2-0 was probably a fair result though they were pretty dire. First half we played some fantastic stuff, imagining adding Worrall into that and we...
  11. The Falklands.

    Things could start hotting up out there. The Falklands or Malvinas as the Argies call them, 310 miles from Argentina, is under increased threat again after oil and gas was found through drilling. The thing is, the last time the Argies moved on the Falklands we were a much bigger in military...

    Getting interesting in my part of the world.

    We've been told to work from home ha ha. I'm going in anyway. I saw a lot of this first hand yesterday and it's no worse or better than anything I've seen in the City over the years. For anyone that knows the Wan Chai scene it was quite surreal yesterday evening to see a couple of thousand...

    Benefit Caps Kick In

And we'll have to cut our use of gas and...

    Summer clearout

    So as we are now 100 percent looking at next season I believe a big old clearout is required. I am certainly not looking to start a big slagging off of players just an honest assessment of the team and where they as individuals and as a team have slumped from the team that obtained 83 points...
  15. Shale Gas/Fracking

    Finally the government has done something that might actually encourage growth. There is an abundance of shale gas in the North of England. It has the potential to dramtically reduce energy prices and also reduce carbon emissions since gas power generation emits a lot less carbon than coal. In...

    Denver Shootings

    Yet another murderous gun attack in the US. Denver this time. Intersting the gunman was wearing a gas mask as one of the somewhat odd murals at Denver Airport may be depicting this attack: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-18921492 Denver Airport mural

    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...
