    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. iFollow streaming service for next season

    I've been having a quick look at the iFollow service, so this may be of interest to overseas fans, especially those based in Ireland. When the new service offering, for overseas supporters, live streaming of all league games next season was announced, I then went from ecstasy to agony within a...

    AFC Wimbledon: Last minute spares

    I know myself and a couple of others have mentioned on other threads that they're keen for an away ticket should anyone have one or two free up, but thought a dedicated thread would help any supply and demand! I'm after one. DM if you can help! :thumbsup:

    Long story, power cuts and a water dowser.

    If I had posted this when it started, it may have had the legs to match MK's fridge post. So i'll keep it short but you may get bored. Earlier this year, probably February time, I saw some damp patches on the left side outside wall of my house. Thought they would dry up but they didn't. We...

    Party venue/DJ

    I have started to think about a surprise party for my wife's 40th in July this year. Anyone got any recommendations please on a DJ and a venue that will hold about 100 and that has a bar, and preferably would supply a buffet. Needs to be in the Southend/Rayleigh/Benfleet area. My first thought...
  9. Chapel Down Sparkling Wine - SUFC branded!

    I recently went to a wine tasting at the Pipe of Port (well worth doing, £10 and you get try loads and if you have dinner they knock the tenner off the bill) and the first one I tried was a sparkling English wine called Chapel Down Blanc de Blanc. When I looked at the bottle I noticed it had an...

    Syria air strikes

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-34950778 Think this topic now deserves its own dedicated thread. Always been impressed by Mark Rylance -either on the stage or in front of the cameras. Good video here on which countries are actually bombing in Syria already.Must be getting fairly crowded in Syrian...
  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...

    So, so far the two countries that won the 2018 and 2022 bids have been cleared. The only countries that have been criticised are ones that didn't win. BBC Does that seem suspicious to anyone else? (Ignoring the fact that Russia didn't supply any email accounts because the computers had been...

    Soma Mine disaster

    200+ miners killed in a mile deep coal mining collapse in Turkey. For a town where mining is the job then the deaths and sorrow of the whole community must be overpowering. To be a mile under ground, trapped while the tunnel collapses and the oxygen runs out must be horrific. Cheaply mined coal...
  16. Goal Difference vs Goals Scored

    Assuming we can keep on winning, we need to improve our goals scored tally, our goal difference is ok when compared to the other clubs in the top 7 but with the table being so tight it could come down to goals scored for the automatic places. Be great to see Barnard and Freddy banging them in...

  18. France - The Road Not Taken

    Hollande promised an end to austerity when he was elected. Since then he has proposed fiscal tightening of 2% of GDP, the majority of which was through tax rises, particularly those aimed at high earners. The result is a collapsing money supply, EUR 53bn leaving the country in the last two...

  20. A message to Cluniemore.....errr Paul Sturrock

    The one chance we have to win automatic promotion now is to dispense with the negative home style of play. Eastwood is a fantastic signing and that still gives us hope but only if we use him effectively, a Martin/Grant/Timlin/Hall midfield with Eastwood/Benyon or Harris up top would give us a...
