    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...
  2. 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...

    Ok....plenty of reasons for invading them (see below for some, I googled off the web earlier),so who's in?....and what can you bring to the team? 1. Riots. There is nothing the French like more than a riot. Half the time it doesn’t have to be about anything particular, they just like getting...

    SZ Novella - Chapter 8

    Chapter Eight - The Reduced Hypertherpia of the Closed Mancharia Osymandus pulled on a pair of heavy trousers and sucked the fetid air in through his teeth. Behind him, Rick Astley's body congealed silently on the floor, but of all the contributory factors to the awful smell in the room, he was...

    Arsenal's Better Half

    Ask a new convert to Arsenal what the club's greatest weakness is and you'll get a variety of answers. You might hear that the players are too young, or that there's no cover in defensive midfield, or even that Nicklas Bendtner is a lumbering oaf incapable of even the simplest of motor skills...

    Terry's Disingenuous Pledge

    If you ever wanted to capture the essence of modern football in just one page, you could do a lot worse than paying a visit to Chelsea's website. Here, behind the splash of adverts for a new kit that looks more like a women's cycling top than a football jersey, you will find John Terry's...

    Vying for the number three spot

    Forget the X-Factor, Britain’s Got Talent or Strictly Come Dancing, there was only one audition to attend this weekend as three prospective England batsmen took to the crease to try and force their way back into the international reckoning. England must now long for the days when a succession...

    Slighty techy stuff..

    Haven't seen this pointed out so far about the game yesterday so will try and keep it simple... Our problem yesterday in keeping that 2-0 scoreline intact came from possibly many areas that have been discussed thus far,a local derby,weather conditions,tough midweek game but it's time to turn to...

    The big question facing Portsmouth

    With an FA Cup and back-to-back top ten finishes in the Premier League supported by a raft of promising summer signings, the big question facing Portsmouth this season is whether or not they have what it takes to break into the private party at the top of the table. Are they good enough yet to...

    WIndies v the Convicts

    As uninspiring as England v NZ (again) is, West Indies v Australia produced some enthralling play to show that it is England who are short of inspiration, not the format or the sport. Two years ago this would have been a gigantic mismatch, but the WIndies are a team finally on an upward curve...

    Dogs or Cats...you decide.

    Personally I prefer dogs and here are the reasons why. Their loyal...a cat will bugger off. Ever seen guide cats for the blind? Cats cant sniff for drugs / bombs and in there spare time dont sniff each others butts. Can a cat herd sheep? A dog could scare off a burglar?, can a cat do this...

    One To Start The Weekend (Week 34)

    This weeks 12STW brings us smack up to recent times, and indeed, this weeks UK no7. Once gracing the scene as Phats and Small, the Freemasons have re-invented themselves, and are undoubtedly one of the biggest names currently in the dance scene. Taking an Alannis Morrisette classic, and...
