  1. Put pebbles in your petrol tank so you don't have to put so much petrol in your car...
  2. I was into the pirate stations that fired up in the 1960's, my favourite was Radio 270 that was moored off the coast of Scarborough, Mam used to write to them & was always mentioned on air, I had a couple of birthday requests played but can't remember whet songs I asked for. My favourite nowadays is BOOM RADIO, it's on digital radio & online, never had it drop out on my car radio, unlike GOLD radio, that drops out all the time...
  3. I noticed when I was down Hucknall pit that the Deep Soft & Black Shale seams had a completely different smell: Deep Soft had a soft mellow almost pleasant smell, whereas Black Shale had a harsh acrid smell. When they'd mixed together where the top of the Black Shale drift emerged into the Deep Soft main return on it's way to the upcast shaft it was a very strange smell...
  4. Someone phoned from Virgin media about a problem with my modem, I said "my neighbours a VM engineer & I'll get him to look at it when he gets home." (He doesn't work for VM, he's a fork lift truck repair man) He insisted he would do it remotely via the internet. He was very insistent that he'd sort it, not to involve my neighbour & wanted the modem number & if I didn't comply my internet would be cut off. I then pretended to shout my neighbour round & said "you can talk to Wayne. about it" He then swore at me & called me names & hung up, I felt rather chuffed that I'd a
  5. Been on FB for 11 years & never had a fallout with anyone, you see posts about covid, brexit, fox hunting, climate change, Boris, Keir, Trump etc just like you do on here, but as a rule I never comment on them. I like to put on light hearted posts like what my brainless cat Pix has been up to, that my wife is watching load of old tosh soaps again, I also moan about the TV licence/council tax/car going for it's MOT etc, & of course daft jokes. I don't usually put controversial posts on...
  6. Facebook reminds of the CB in the early 1980's & a lot of my FB friends are old CB friends. If I get any friend requests from someone I don't know or a friend doesn't know I just delete them. I've got back in touch through FB with family & friends I've lost touch with, old school friends & old army mates, I'm even FB friends with my old Sergeant-Major & Staff Sergeant & I was terrified of them decades ago, I've even made 3 friends through Notstalgia. I go on a FB site for ex soldiers & re-post some of their daft jokes & it was one of then that got me jailed, lol...
  7. Yeah I remember you telling me about your daughters boyfriend in the comments in my post after I was released. It's great strutting about being an old lag, lol...
  8. I dare't as I don't want to end up in Nottstalgia jail, lol...
  9. I've been a bad lad & spent time in facebook clink for 24 hours. My heinous crime was sharing one of those Leonardo DiCaprio laughing face memes with the 'F' word in it. Found out since quite a few of my FB friends have been in there so I didn't so feel lonely, porridge was a bit lumpy though. Anyone else been in FB slammer & why?
  10. Think she was taring all men with the same brush. This would end my part time DJ'ing at my wife's line dance classes & socials as they're all in the evening. I've had female strangers ask if they can walk with me as they feel afraid walking alone, this has happened a few times...
  11. I have no problems mowing the front part of my lawn as it's almost flat, but round the side it slopes away from the house quite steeply & I have to twist myself to mow it & kills my back. So I'm thinking of having artificial grass on the sloping side part & leaving the front part natural. It'd be easier putting weedkiller/mosskiller on & jetting it now & again. My drive has moss on it & I will jet it when it gets warmer, if I can be bothered that is, lol...
  12. New Scientist speculated a few years ago that the increase in CO2 levels in the atmosphere could cause a massive increase in plant life that could suck up so much CO2 that it'd go below present levels. This'd then probably cause global cooling & another ice age. Nature has a habit of not doing what boffins think will happen...
  13. When a kid we were all ready to emigrate to Christchurch New Zealand, Dad had a job offer & everything was sorted. But Mam backed us out as she didn't want to move away from her family, thing is we hardly ever saw them. Auntie Hilda & her family emigrated to Ottawa Canada in the 60's but came back after 3 years. Cousin Ellenor emigrated to Sydney in 1981 & is still there. I have friends in Brisbane, Gold Coast & Perth. We were planing to go over to Oz in 2020, but covid 19 bu**ered that up. I wasn't sure how I'd be on a long haul flight with having ischemic colitis, so went to
  14. In New Scientist that the universes rate of expansion seems to be accelerating even faster that they thought it was. They admit they don't have a clue why. They thought that when they started getting data from the gravity wave detectors in 2015 that things would start to make sense, but actually things are making less sense. Lots of head scratching going on in boffin world at the moment...
  15. They have discovered lots of phosphine in the Venusian atmosphere & in all the science mags (New Scientist, Scientific American, Popular Science etc) they think it could indicate life. Notice the word COULD & not DOES, of course it's just a speculation. I've a funny feeling life will turn out to be a no show on Venus when they've done all the searching, I hope I'm wrong & will eat my words if I am.... ... P.S. I'd have said " I'l eat my hat if I'm wrong" but you lot WOULD have insisted I eat my hat if I turned out to be wrong. I might be daft, but not that daft...
