  1. I thought you were going to say Offal times...
  2. That takes me back... Passed my driving test in August 1971 and one of my mates said "let's go to Skeggy, that will be good practice now you can drive". Me dad had just bought me an old Ford Popular as a present for passing the test. Drove over to Skeg, pint in the Ship (I was only 17 and me mate had to go in and get it, I looked very young for my age) and then drove straight back to Nottingham. Happy days.

  4. Don't like Coke or Pepsi very much. The only fizzy pop I drink is Vimto. Takes me back to sitting outside a pub as a kid while my parents had a couple inside. (Usually The Wolds or Test Match in Bridgford). Have had a few Macdonalds but wouldn't go out of my way to get one.

A few key workers have been let in but they have to follow strict guidelines (5 specialist welders were jailed a couple of weeks ago after they went to the supermarket on arrival to get some beers!). Daily life is just the same for everyone else, pretty much the same as before covid, no restrictions apart from the return from holidays/visiting relatives. Must say nothing has changed for us. Maybe we would have had a short break to UK but it will wait. Look after yo
  6. Lovely day yesterday - Mrs WB's birthday. Steam train from Douglas to Port Erin. Lovely weather so fish and chips on Port Erin front then back on train for a beer (or two) on Douglas Quayside. We're not much into pubs but that just rounded the day off nicely.
  7. Unluckily the other team scored two.
  8. Doing more than okay over here, 100 days covid free... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-isle-of-man-53952024
