  1. HOWEVER... Mrs WB watches the shows where so called celebrities compete. Cooking, dancing, ice skating, sewing etc. The judges say something nice but then say HOWEVER and then start picking faults. Mrs WB has had enough and has finally learnt how to use SKYQ and records everything so she can fast forward through the judges bit. HOWEVER, she still watches the damn programmes.
  2. A few things BK... The IoM prison was on Victoria Road!!!! Perhaps a reason he couldn't visit you. (Only joking). The tram up Snaefell is a definite highlight for any visitors. My youngest lives in an old cottage in Laxey, I often think I should have bought it, she has glorious sea views from the front of her house. Mount Murray was used as an isolation place for returning residents last year when we had a covid problem. There is a steam railway service from Douglas to Port Erin in the south which is a lot more scenic and nostalgic than the Ramsey tram.
  3. I'm on the same side of the island as the tram Beekay,(Onchan), but in the thirty years I've been here only used it a couple of times. Much prefer driving over the mountain road to Ramsey.
  4. Too right Beekay, have to pack sandwiches and a flask if you need to go to Ramsey from where I am!
  5. Have a virtual drive around some of the big cities... https://driveandlisten.herokuapp.com/
  6. I thought you were going to say Offal times...
  7. 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.
