|The "comedians" on the Nat West adverts.....|
at 19:48 18 Aug 2019
Anyone laughing? Not really....
Anybody see the Bob Monkhouse documentary when he was dying and did a sort of gig with well known comedians....the man really does have legendary status...on the comedy front.
Did a gag about being born in Kent....he goes on....I keep getting reminded all the time about it...I meet people and when I go to leave all I hear is "Kent"...a witty man

Watching one of these 'how is it made' progs and it's DM's. Many of us of a certain age can remember having a pair...was into the skinhead/ska music scene. Can't for the life of me think how buttons I had...remember going to Wrexham and all of us getting told by some tw@t of a police super...that we all had to watch the match without our boots...picking them up after the match
Any good stories out there?

|New twist in the Sala plane crash|
at 14:32 14 Aug 2019
Emiliano Sala 'exposed to carbon monoxide in plane crash'
Footballer Emiliano Sala, who died in a plane crash over the English Channel, had been exposed to high levels of carbon monoxide, a report has revealed.
Sala and pilot David Ibbotson crashed on 21 January when travelling to Cardiff from the French city of Nantes.
Toxicology tests on Sala's body showed CO levels in his blood were so great it could have caused a seizure, unconsciousness or a heart attack.
Mr Ibbotson, from Crowle, North Lincolnshire, has still not been found.
But it is likely he would also have been exposed to carbon monoxide, the Air Accidents Investigations Branch (AAIB) report said.
Geraint Herbert, head of air accidents for the AAIB, said it is believed both men were exposed to the gas before the plane crashed.
"Symptoms at low exposure levels [to carbon monoxide] can be drowsiness and dizziness, but as the exposure level increases it can lead to unconsciousness and death," he added.
"The investigation continues to look into a wide range of areas in relation to this accident, but in particular we are looking at the potential ways in which carbon monoxide can enter the cabin in this type of aircraft."

Just watching the BBC 4 programme of Top Of The Pops around 1977 and they just interviewed Nicky Wire of The Manic Street Preachers.....really...really....who was eulogizing about them....he was born in 1969...which meant he was around 9...when they came on the scene. Jesus..we all had affection for them...but there were far better examples than Manic Street Preachers..

|Swans Top Half Finish at Evens...|
at 08:32 24 Jul 2019
Going for lunch today with a few of my punting syndicate bods...and the agenda is our Ante Post season bets on the footie.
Going to recommend that we back The Jacks to finish in the Top 12 of the Ch'ship at Evens...seen enough...too complex to go anything like Top 6, Promotion etc....but bullish we'll be in the top half on what I've seen so far.
Other recommendations are:
Wolves bottom half finish. (Prem) 2/1
Blackpool Top Half Finish ( L1) Evs
Stoke Top Half Finish (Ch'ship) 1/2 (sadly)
Norwich to be relegated (Prem) 11/8
Fulham Top 6 (Ch'ship) 4/5
Carlisle Bottom Half Finish (League 2) 8/11
If anyone one has any strong thoughts on similar bets then feel free to post...
