    Memory Lane FM247: Radios In Motion

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrZyqo-kiZE&nohtml5=False This might resonate a little for anyone who's come back to Southend after a little while away. I was staying in town over the w/e and was at a bit of a loose end between an afternoon curry and seeing a gig at The Railway. I had a...
  2. Ban smoking outdoors?

    Interesting article from the Beeb about the use of pub gardens now being used by smokers in the hot months, discouraging those who do not partake from sitting outside. It's being banned in some USA states and there are laws in place in Oz & NZ. Jersey seemingly looking at going that extra step...

    Crisis Open Christmas 2011

    Few days spare over the festive period? http://youtu.be/hNC8vJcrqRs Every year (except last year when I was on holiday) I do a few shifts on the Activities and Entertainments team. Always a lot of fun and very rewarding, feels good at this time of year to give people a bit of warmth, shelter...

    Your A-Z of Greatest Hits

    The theory is you need to make a double album of your favourite songs, 13 on each CD. The catch is you can only pick one song per letter to make an A-Z. So how would your A-Z pan out? It helps having iTunes or suchlike open in song order in front of you! If there's enough responses to this I...

    Bobby Robson (RIP) & Liberia: Football's Legacy of hope

    Saw this two page spread in yesterday's Sunday Mirror (can't find anything more than <this>, and found corresponding article on CAFOD website. It doesn't quite explain where all the shirts came from in this article but they were the ones left at St James' park: Liberia: Football's Legacy of...

    Cheryl Cole. Grrrr.

    There are a million and one reasons to dislike Cheryl Cole. There’s her colour, for starters, a curious orangey glow that smacks of either too much Sunny Delight or too many quid-a-minute South Shields tanning salons. There’s her husband, the odious little skraeling who earns more money in the...

    Memory Lane Episode No 1 Season 1931-32

    As I have posted previously I have an article printed in every official programme this season telling the story of Season 1931-32 in 23 episides. It has been pointed out to me that not everybody attendes every match and not everyone buys a programme, so I thought I would post them here again if...

    SZ Novella - Chapter One

    Inspired by the truly awesome work of the Shrimperzone Writer's Bureau, I've been clattering away on a full version of this dystopian nightmare, attempting to give it the depth that it deserves. MK Shrimper planted a bug in my head and I really hope that I can do it justice, not least because...

    Dog advice

    Any truth in this WW2 story?

    Judging by how far behind eveyone else I seem to be in getting jokes and stuff sent to me, I don't know if any of you have seen this story. It seems very far fetched to me, just wondered if anyone knows if there's any truth in it or is this a hangover from last April Fools' Day or something? ;)...

    BBC (& Sky) Gaza DEC Appeal Veto

    My view is that there is a very real humanitarian crisis going on in Gaza and that urgent medicine, food and shelter is great need. I've been reading CAFOD's blog from Palestine which has been a real eye opener and very personal account of exactly what has been going on. I know there must be...

    Interview with an Exile - Part 11: The tables have turned!

    Hi folks, This will be the final Interview with an Exile for Series 1, and I thought I would give some of the people I have cheekily edited on here over the past few months the opportunity to get their own back. So in the series finale, I am answering the questions! Would like to thank...

    I'm a Shrimperzoner, Get Me Out Of Here

    So if the balloon went up and we were put back in the stone age how would we all get on? Could the faithful from this web site survive if required. Could you build shelter, find water, light fire and find food? Tell us what you would do to survive. Robbing an Tesco's does not count.

    Offered out by a 90 year old?

    Just popped to Asda's to get some shopping bits as I am cooking dinner tonight for the sprogs and the beloved. I approached one of these bus stop shelter thingies that you take your trolley back to and in front of me was this old guy fiddling with the trolley trying to get his pound back. I...

    Nothing Yet For Keegan

    Newcastle’s worrying, barren run under Kevin Keegan stretched to its third game on Wednesday morning when they were beaten for the second time in four days by Arsenal. Once again, the Magpies came to play football and once again they were ruthlessly punished for their audacity. Most managers...
