Anyone else gone through results today? My stepson has spent 10 months refusing to consider Uni on the prospect of bad results, only to get good results and decide this morning that he fancied it.
Got through clearing and is now doing History at the uni. Wonderful result save the year of lethargy!!

Anybody taking any notice of this. Interesting concept. Currently watching Ellan Vannin vs Tamil Eelam. Not high quality but decent to watch. Tamil Keeper made a superb save 14 minutes in.

Any recommendations for places to eat in city centre? Don't venture that way too much, tend to ally Deers leap and Red lion!!
|Employment Law question|

"Asking for a friend...."
Looking for insight if anyone knows a bit.
Person A was suspended by their employer and put through disciplinary procedures. During this they resigned when it became clear the reports etc were not balanced. The hearing went ahead and found that they would have been dismissed.
As the person is registered with a regulatory body they then have to investigate the person.
In their findings they firstly close the case but also raise concern about the way the investigation was conducted and that there were systemic failings that were not Person A's responsibility.
Anybody have an idea if there's any point trying to get the disciplinary wiped off the persons record pr taking legal action?

Anyone else watching this? Have watched it intermittently a friend's daughter is in the Welsh team.
Anyone noticed how many times the commentator has used men or man instead of woman/women?

Thought I'd put this out there for anyone who can make use of it. Mods, if not allowed please delete.
There's is a musical Memories Choir run on a Tuesday from 13:30 -15:30 at the Memorial hall in Morriston. There are three in total across Swansea, one in West Cross and one in Manselton. Aimed especially for those with Alzheimers or Dememntia we get together to have a singalong, a cuppa and a chat.
Anyone interested can pop along or PM me for more details
|Couch to 5k|
at 19:18 19 Sep 2017
So my cycling has come to an end for the winter as the dark mornings set in. Weight loss is going well so wanted to keep the activity going. Decided to try some running. Downloaded a C25k app with Michael Johnson as the voice/coach. Can probably do a bit more, but on our first run today, but this morning managed to get me my wife and our boy out at 6am!
Enjooyed doing it together and if they don't come out can do a longer run.
Anybody done a C25k?

Our Church is heading out to Nepal soon to spend a week with a Children's home in Kathmandu. In the process of working out things to take we have had contact from the Manchester United foundation who have said they will give us some kit.
It's a long way to go from Swansea to OT so we're seeing if there's an alternative to driving up there.
If there is anyone on here who might be able to help us out in picking the stuff up and sending it down here (costs covered obviously) it would be great to hear from someone.

Just out of interest does anyone have any unusual teams that they follow in other countries?
In the rare occasion I have my own time i have the odd game of fifa 16. Had a careecareer started with Wycombe and got offered the job at De Graafschap. Never heard of them but now looked them up etc. Anyone else have an interest in weird teams, maybe through fm etc?

Mother-in-law was a big music fan, especially Il Divo, Katherine Jenkins, Aled Jones and Cliff Richard.
She died last year and we have a flight case with about 40 Cliff 12", a couple of Aled but mainly Cliff.
Can't work out whether to bin the lot or try and find a buyer. The case alone is wortha couple of quid. Also got a small box of '45s of Cliff singles.
Advice welcome (apart from burn the lot....!!)

I've never listened to this show. Just driven from Morriston to Sketty and had the pleasure of listening to Ryan.
Advocating the New Saints manager to replace FG, I was highly amused by the bewildered presenters figuring out what to say!!
|Everything you wanted to know about Planet Swans, but were afraid to ask|
at 20:02 4 Sep 2016
So, even though I've been part of the forum for a good while, there's still lots of things i get puzzled over or don't know, so I thought I would put this up, so if you feel in the sAme boat you too can ask a question and if someone wants to answer they can.
I'll kick off.
Why does Wayne Kerr hate straight lines?
|Referee Blunders against the Swans|
at 18:42 16 Aug 2016
With the recent talk of referees, it's raised a couple of historic questions that I wouldn't be able to answer.
Are there specific refs that are disliked by Swans fans because of particular performances? I remember the Stoke game but other thanthat I'm not great at remembering specific incidents. Which incidents and refs stand out over the last say ten years??

Adding to the spate of parking ticket threads thought I would add one with a happy ending.
Parked on the strand couple of weeks back, bought a legit ticket from the machine. Went to Kaspas for an awesome waffle and came back to find a parking ticket from the council on the windscreen.
Looked in the car and the ticket I bought had flipped over so wasn't showing the right details. Rules and regs say ticket must be displayed correctly.
Wrote a letter, copied the ticket I bought and the penalty notice and explained what had happened. Asked to hear quickly so that if the penalty was upheld I could pay the cheapoer cost.
Had a letter this morning, they have cancelled the charge, obviously had a photo as they said it was back to front. Nice to see a bit of common sense prevail. But they did say that if it happened again they may not cancel it. No chance of that though, been double checking since!!

I've lived all of my football loving life as a Wycombe Wanderers supporting Englishman. I have an understanding of life in the lower leagues and failure at International tournaments.
I have a Welsh step-son who is sixteen. He's had a Swansea Premier league season ticket since the age of 11 and the first major tournament his national team gets to they get to the semi's, dare I say exceeding expectation!!
How do I explain to him so he gets it, that he is being totally spoilt and needs to make the most of these great days because they may not happen again for a long time??!!
|Curry in London|
at 08:04 19 Jun 2016
Staying in London for three nights next week. Want to get a decent curry. Any recommendations. We are at the Barbican for a conference for three days but travelling in from Stonebirdge Park so it's got to be fairly easy to get to from those places.
