Strange one this folks, but we had an old fella in the pub today, lovely old guy and he was telling us about his grandad, he used to own the White Rose in Mumbles, and apparently he was one of founders of Swansea Town. A Capt. Tom Martin?
Just trying to find out a bit more for the old guy...? I've tried a quick google search but come up blank...
So I'm in work on Monday night when in walks Craig Bellamy, within 5 minutes he has been escorted out the front door for his own good to be honest. A group of English contractors who have frequented the establishment most evenings for the past few months are stood having a pint in their usual spot when the esteemed Mr. Bellamy asks if they are staring at him! (They were actually watching the TV and the build up to the England v Iceland match).
After he seemed to simmer down, his lady friend who was with him asked the English guys what they do for a living, they quite politely replied that they were shop fitters who had just finished up for the day and she said that it must be hard work. At this point he decided that they were all having a pop at footballers for being lazy, and moments later he was persuaded to leave.
The English lads in the pub showed great restraint in not flattening him to be honest... Read a few times about his good charity work and how he's a reformed character these days, even on here once or twice. But I can honestly say that on Monday he lived down to all my expectations. What a prize prick!
Stick them in a room together, stick a couple of mediators in there, and don't let them out until they find a common ground. Get a united message from them all, even if it's along the lines of "we agree to disagree! But let's all stop killing each other eh?"
Our governments aren't going to stop these terrorist acts, the "war on terror?" Isn't working, if it's religion that's causing all this mayhem in the world, and the leaders genuinely condemn all these acts, then it's down to those leaders to unite and sort this mess out.
Been sat here for over 30 minutes listening to some lovely pre-recorded music...bored to tears, so I thought I would just post this...
Anyone else had to contact the tax office lately? Had to answer some questions repeatedly to some sort of voice recognition thing which took forever, and now this! It's just to resolve an emergency tax code! Surely these days I could have just done this online?
Not sure how she managed it but my young Staffie has managed to lose one of her claws. Out for a walk the other day and she suddenly started limping, had a good look and the "nail?" Was at a funny angle, last night it just came off.
She isn't whimpering or anything, she is moving around fine albeit with a very slight limp, but she does seem a bit down in the dumps.
Advice on the net seems to be keep it clean and just keep an eye on her? Or is a trip to the vets in order? Quick look on Google seems to show that this is quite a common thing?
I don't mean the £20 in the back pocket type of money, but the money that the banks, governments, IMF etc. talk about... I'm lost? There isn't enough produce / money in the world to cover the amounts that they talk about on the news surely?
For example, they talk about "Trillions" of pounds??? Surely I could buy just about everything (not anything!) if I had a spare couple of Trillion pounds down the back of the sofa....
"It is hoped that the weather will cool enough for mankind’s first ever “Ginger Pride” parade next week, where hordes of carrot-topped individuals will line the streets and celebrate all that is good about being ginger.
The parade is expected to last around eight minutes before heading inside to get out of the sun."
