Now, how about a bit of sympathy for the bloke who was dragged screaming to watch Wicked yesterday



A Sunday afternoon I am never getting back
I spent an afternoon at that production admiring the engineering that went into the scenery.

My friend booked it for a treat. What else could i do?
 
Since when did Tankfest run on a Monday?








Monkey World (unfortunately not what I originally thought it was) is quite interesting:)

That’s uncanny, I work from home, and every time I’d hear an approaching helicopter, i’d grab my then 3 year old son and take him out to the front of the house to watch them fly by.

I stopped doing that when I rushed out with him once, and he theatrically sighed and said -

“Another helicopter?”

My daughter can recognise most U.K. Army/RAF helicopters. She took great pleasure in “spotting” a Chinook accompanied by a couple of Apache following the course of the Thames when out rowing the other week, caused much puzzlement amongst the rest of her crew.

Aged 6, I really annoyed my mother by correction her description of a helicopter as a Sioux.

Apparently 'No Mum. It's a Scout' is being cheeky.

Watch another channel. Al Jazeera is good. Even GB news, for a short while, can be informative. BBC news is all 'Government Grr. Robbing Universal Credit'. Plus stoking panic buying of food and fuel.

No mention that folk have had an extra £20 a week for months, thanks taxpayer. Or questioning why UK folks don't want to be lorry drivers any more. AJ has its agenda but reports a lot more actual news from. Around the world.

The simple answer to such "news" programmes is Don't Watch Any Television News Programmes. Newspapers and radio (short, sharp) provide adequate news items.
Television companies are only out to make money and will provide items which their young inform them are the in thing.
 
JUst read somewhere , and I cannot find it again(which also irritates me) that the boss of iceland is reporting that they are having to cancel 30-40 deliveries a day due to driver shortages ...... media making a big deal about it
two things
1 It's mainly frozen food so when it is delivered shouldn't make any difference
2 30 to 40 deliveries , that couldl be to 30 or 40 Iceland shops , well a quick look tells me there are over 940 in UK and 27+ in Ireland so if they are delivering daily is that not equivalent to about 3-4% of deliveries....... worst case imho could be 10%.... my god , we are all going to starve

but don't let common sense get in the way of a good panic

If supermarkets just transported essential food stuffs to their stores, it would be a far lesser issue.

Despite empty food shelves, various other departments still seem well stocked.

Define 'essential'.
Lichis are 'essential' for some.
Entitled pricks.

I was meaning more along the lines of the various dvds, PlayStations, aromatic candles, garden ornaments etc

Oh yes indeed.
BUT have you considered, seriously, the profit margins on such stuff, and Chrimbo is coming, and MSM is already warning that there will be a shortage of Chrimbo presents?
And, like petrol, how many of the 'essential' foodstuffs are being panic-bought? And will end up in the bin next week?*
Another quick question - how full are the booze aisles?
