    New Job Required

    I found out last week that I will be made redundant in the next week or so. Got called in for a "chat" and was then told that my job is going and now I have a week left. I'm pretty gutted about this as the timing is completely shite. I work in account management/field sales selling to...

    Local Scouting

    I was talking to a mate the other night about youth teams. He runs a team in Bolton that has all age groups. He was telling me that they never see any scouts at their games anymore. They have some cracking young players but nobody seems to be looking at them. Does anyone else have this same...

    Garage Problem

    Last week I took my work van into the Manchester Citroen garage for a new fuel filter. I left the van with them and 2 days later it was ready. When I came to collect the van I noticed that the door wasn't locked. Anyway I drove off and carried on my work day. Later on I tried to lock the door...

    Multi Fuel Stoves

    I have been looking at getting one of these installed. I have seen some threads on here but was wondering about the prices they should cost. I have seen some in ebay that range from £200 - £400 and they seem fine for us (4-5kw). I have also seen one in a proper stove supplier shop for £800...

    Extreme Cheapskates Programme

    Just watched an American programme on one if the digital channels TLC about cheapskates. There was one guy who went to a restaurant with his wife and would go over to people to ask for their leftovers then box them up to eat later! He also went out to get her anniversary prezzies from the local...

    Just seen a new character in Eastenders and remember her from This Life. It was a bbc2 drama about some young Lawyers and solicitors sharing a house in London. Anyone remember it? Quality show and well worth checking out if you haven't seen it.

    Kids Do The Funniest Things

    I fell asleep earlier while watching The Simpsons with my daughter and 3 year old son. I was woken by him giving me the kiss of life (correct mouth seal too), he said he had just seen it on tv, Mr Burns doing it to Smithers, it was so funny. Glad there wasn't an Itchy and Scratchy episode in it...

    Death Penalty

    I have been thinking about the Daniel Pelka case and it got me thinking about the death penalty. Should it be brought in for certain cases. I really don't have a problem with it for child killers and maybe serial killers. Or is a "life" sentence better, 30 yrs plus. I can see lots of pros but...

    Worst Pub In Town

    After reading the best pubs for beer gardens thread thought about this as a topic. Nags head is bad, landlords a cock and place always full of rags. But for me worst is Burton Arms. Now that landlord is a proper bell end, with his picture of him n Rooney behind the bar. Last time I went in we...
