    Does Anyone on Here Happen to Work for Network Rail?

    If you do, can you tell me what this is? I see them on the side of the railway line, but have no idea what they are. The picture isn't very clear, but they're made of wood and painted yellow. The one in the picture has the number 15 on it, but they go up in quarters, so you have 14, 1/4, 1/2...
  2. Good Luck

    Good Luck this Saturday Shrimpers, losing a few years ago to us in the semi's and then the Paint Pot Final must of hurt but your fans at Wembley that day were a credit to the club, the respect the majority showed towards Adam Dugdale is something I will remember. It will be good to have you...

    Recent DIY wins

    I recently noticed the pressure gauge reading low on my combi boiler. I re-pressurized the system only to notice the pressure drop off again over the next few days. This pointed to a leak in the central heating system which could have involved ripping up newly laid floors at worst and at best...

    The lady who fell on the stairs/ Flowers collection

    It was a sad scene to see that lady laying on the deck in pain after falling down the stairs. Hope she is okay. It would be a nice gesture for Shrimperzone to set up a collection to buy her flowers. Someone on here may know who she is so we could get flowers sent over to her.
  7. Car Tax

    With the changes being implemented in October i believe as you will no longer have a physical disc to display, my question is : Isn't about time this was abolished perhaps in favour of adding a couple of pence per litre to fuel to cover the shortfall in revenue? My reasonings behind this are...

    Vanishing Spray and other ways to fix football

    Despite its obvious benefits in the world cup, the football league aren't sure about it and will only use it in the JPT this year. "The spray will not be used yet by the Football League, which intends to hold trials of its effectiveness in next season's Johnstone's Paint Trophy. Football...

    Choosing the right Mattress

    The wife and I have decided we need a new/better mattress. We both suffer quite badly from back/neck pain as a result of our jobs, and so I think getting a decent mattress to help our bodies is a must. However, the question "What is the best mattress for back pain?" doesn't seem to give an...
  13. Damp issue

    In the top room of our victorian terrace, we have a mouldy-damp patch at the top of the chimney stack in the room. There's a photo link below here: http://i43.tinypic.com/2h822jn.jpg When we moved into the house over 2 years ago we thought it was a historic issue and had the room re...

    Christian Benitez RIP

    Sadly passed away today aged 27 of a cardiorespiratory arrest. Was being linked with a move to Spurs but decided to move to Qatar for a contract worth £10m. He had severe stomach pain and was sent to hospital where he passed away. My thoughts go out to his family. RIP Chucho.

    New Badge Concept....

    After the Everton crest debacle & rumours of a new SUFC badge, I thought I'd see what kind of new design I could come up with. Unfortunately, the idea I had in my mind didn't quite match the final result :blush: due to only having access to MS Paint at work lol. I'd be able to create a...
