  1. Found another "M" Montego Bay (Jamaica) - Bobby Bloom The others are still pending.....Spoiler alert - bagpipes are being prepared for later tonite!
  2. I have an appointment with a nurse at mine next week for a blood test with them ringing me with the results 3 days later! Must admit though that they are saying all appointments with Doctors are phone unless in special circumstances can be by video. No mention of face-to-face. Covid blamed of course! Next step? All doctors can stay at home, by the phone/computer, no need to physically see patients at all! Then they can sell of the building and....... I wonder, if Covid is ever "cured" or disappears, who will be blamed for making our lives much worse? I'm not daft enough to think we'll get back to ringing up and physically been in the same room as a Doctor a few days later for example. Surely they'll find some other scapegoat?
  3. Marakkesh Express - Crosby Stills and Nash Coming soon, I've got 3 more ready - also all starting with the letter "M". One each of Scottish, Irish and American..... unless anybody beats me to them!
  4. I'm getting fed up with them as well - and I've made suggestions to them as to how to get the revenue without inconveniencing us too much. No reply, but I tried. I know from posts that others are considering quitting, but I've only recently joined and if I leave I'm not on Facer or Twitbook or the like or have any interest in joining, so that would be me missing out of the few useful informatory posts and updates (who United have signed, bus time changes etc) that are helpful - as well as the social interraction in these strange times. I'll stick with it for a while and see......
  5. Perhaps United have sold theirs to you - if so, great news as I hated it! UTB!
  6. Going to California - Led Zeppelin
  7. Go down Gamblin' - Blood, Sweat and Tears
  8. Carolina in my mind - James Taylor
  9. great spot! Great official vid on YouTube as well. Shortly after it, he died, then his wife (also in the vid) died, then the ranch burnt down. Manchester Rambler - Ewen MacColl
  10. Depends on the managers plans. If he's planning on selling Ramsdale and Berge, I can't see him wanting to stay. If not....
  11. If we sold him and Berge, it would ease finances - yes - but who would be able to buy as replacements as the prices would clearly rise as its well known we'd have money to spend. No, sell them and expect to stay in the Championship for the foreseeable future.
  12. Nutbush City Limits - Ike and Tine Turner Big Rock Candy Mountain - Pete Seeger Port of Amsterdam - David Bowie
  13. I wonder how many people are self-isolating because their microwave went "Ping"!
  14. I take it you've been in that other pub, the INN-U-ENDO recently. Missed you in Padders Bar.
  15. OOPs! Sorry!! Must have mis-read previous posts on this thread. Please accept my apologies. I've apologised to him - put his next drink on my tab.
  16. Just found this thread. California Man - The Move Windsor Waltz - Vera Lynn London Calling - The Clash Rocky Mountain Way - Joe Walsh and a 2 for 1: The Battle (nr. Hastings where 1066 really happened) of New Orleans - Lonnie Donegan
  17. Is that the dart professional Peter (Snakebite) Wright in the background? 😀
  18. If we are talking refugees from conflict, then I thought the first country outside the conflict they are escaping from that they came to were meant to shelter them until they could return home. What seems to be happening is that England is the "destination of choice" for those who have no choice, and other countries just pass them on and help them to get to England. If we could somehow change this perception, then refugees would not want to settle in England, and prefer other countries. Instead of hearing about our benefits system, free housing etc etc, couldn't we somehow let them know about the racism, homelessness, knife crime, squalid conditions in the little remaining council housing, deprivation and so on. Perhaps also do something about refugees sending money back home so that more could pay human traffickers to get the rest of their families to try the Channel Crossing. Sending home the details of people who perished in the Channel, or suffocated in lorries they used to get them to our soil would let people know the risks involved in attempting to get to the UK, as well as letting them know the fate of their loved ones. The ones who make it seem to get word back about how good it its - at least let them know many simply don't make it, and would have been better off choosing a European country.
