    My grandfather met an untimely end in Flanders in 1917. I'm going to visit his grave on the anniversary of his death (99th). Has anyone here been and if so, how did you find the experience? (Checks spelling.. Voormezeele, near Ypres.

    RIP Neil Armstrong

    Who didn't want to be an astronaut as a kid? Odd that I walked past Yuri Gagarin's grave today and thought about my boyhood dreams of going to the moon too.

    Kids Just Don't Know Their Born

    While having a wonder around the shop today it suddenly struck me just how little kids know of the real world and what they are missing out on. It started when my missus mentioned our niece and how it must cost her mum a fortune so she can wear all the clobber and make-up yet she hasn't two...

    The clue is in the name. They called it Mono-poly. Mono. One. Not Bi-opoly, not Tri-opoly, and certainly not Commi-opoly where you all work together and the renting revenue gets ******* on the space programme. It’s a game and it’s there to be won, so what’s the point in trying to play nice? Did...

    X-Files Special: The Teflon Ron

    Reading through many of the posts regarding our current financial woes, one thought has struck me over and over again: How the hell does Ron Martin do it? Mr Martin has been proven to be a liar. That’s a fact that cannot be disputed. I was thinking of prefacing that with an ‘IMHO’, but I...

    RIP Douglas Jardine

    I know he died 50 odd years ago, but he'll be spinning in his grave more than a Murali chuck. Angelo Mathews hit a single out to midwicket and as it was only Graeme Swann, turned to come back for a second run despite the fact it was only ever a run and a half. Mathews then ran into Onions, the...

    Question Does your partner know your "magic number".

    Think I have mentioned it before but one of my best mates got married and then left his wife three weeks later. Couldnt really understand it at the time but turns out he had been having a six month affair behind his girlfriend of 10 years back. Since then he has been wracked with guilt and has...

    I'm going away for the weekend but my nomination for British hero is up for the first round this afternoon so here's why you should vote for him: Clement Attlee served as Winston Churchill's deputy in the War Coalition before winning the 1945 election and leading the most...
  17. Disappointing stewarding at Roots Hall last night

    A small matter, but one I thought I should bring to the attention of SZ. I was right at the front in the East Stand, near the corner flag that splits us from the south. When Chelsea scored their second, one man jumped up from his seat and yelled "YES!". This Chelsea fan was clearly on his own...

I may get a warning note put on the contact order, gains sweet FA in time spent...
