  1. Memory Lane Pubey's trip down memory lane

    I don’t know why, I guess I’m just getting old, but yesterday I had a real sense of nostalgia. I spent the evening thumbing through our wedding album with Mrs Pubey, a regular pastime, and my eye was drawn to a family who have been ‘family friends’ all my life. They were...

    Restaurants in Southend

    I'm taking the Mrs out to the casino on friday to show off my James Bond moves and thought I'd treat her to a swanky meal. Does anyone know what the best restaurants in Southend are these days? I've heard rumblings about a place called 'San fairie Ann' but want some options. Any advice would...

    Bafana Bafana Stand Proud

    South Africa 1-1 Mexico SOUTH AFRICA STAND TALL IN FRONT OF THE WORLD They called them the weakest hosts in the history of the World Cup. They said that they would be outclassed, that they would never progress from the group stage. They were wrong. After months of training camps and practice...

    Final of the Stanley Cup is taking place in the NHL between rough and tumblers Philadelphia Flyers and the creative Chicago Blackhawks. The first game of the series final was played last night and Chicago won 6-5. This Stanley Cup Play-offs have had some big shocks with Montreal knocking out...

    Question Pork Scratchings???

    Last night I sat down to the delights of England vs Mexico. I dont have beer in the house as a rule as I cant stop drinking it but we had friends over at the weekend for a BBQ and so its rude to leave those ice cold San Miguels in the fridge. Anyway ploughing through my third pack all the...

    England Flatter To Deceive

    NOTHING FOR ENGLAND TO SHOUT ABOUT Forget about the result, this was not a good night for England. Fabio Capello has much to ponder before he makes his final squad selection for the World Cup. A 3-1 victory over a side of Mexico’s quality is a fine result on paper, but the performance that went...

    Spartacus : Blood & Sand

    Anyone seen this ? Been watching it last few weeks and been aout 11 episodes and whilst it started slow really enjoying it now. Rather low budget CGI which lets it down a bit but storyline and characters make it worth a watch. Heavily influenced by 300 for the combat scenes but once you get...
  12. Tangled up in Blue


    It's seemed to me for a while now that there should be a place on this forum for gigs that people have been to recently(and what they thought about the band) and/ or upcoming concerts and their venues. So here goes.;) Have to say that it's been a bit quiet here on the gigs front recently(it...

    Australia vs Indonesia

    Went to this match last night, along with about 20,000 others at Suncorp Stadium. It was the final qualifier for the Asian Championships and Australia needed a draw to qualify, they won 1-0. A scrappy game to be honest, like when England play someone like Lichtenstein or San Marino and face 11...
  14. Robinho: The £32.5m Advert

    When Manchester City pipped Chelsea to the signing of Robinho 18 months ago, it was dubbed as the transfer that would make the whole world take notice. It has, we’ve now noticed just how petulant a footballer can possibly be. The Brazilian forward come winger come child has had what can only be...

    If you'd been a good boy or girl this year and Santa has visited your house what did you get ? I got mostly clothes, few jumpers, new footy boots and some aftershave. Over to you. Merry Christmas

    So is the boss Santa or Scrooge... Do you have the day off or at the very least get to leave at lunch? Or are you working beyond lunch? Merry Christmas to all at Shrimperzone!

    Why don't I feel Christmassy yet?.....

    .....because I've realise what a ******* Santa is, that's why. I mean, aside from the dubious idea of an elderly man entering the bedrooms of sleeping children and emptying his sacks, what else does he do? Think about it: 1) Parking offences - how many parking tickets must he pick up with his...
