    Police chief. ?

    How about Mr White feather handing over his unearned pension to the dead officers wife and family...... That should even things up a bit.. There was nothing to stop him ordering his driver to run the terrorist over he didn't need to leave his nice warm car.. There is not one beat bobby that could look up to this cowardly person..He should be publically be stripped of all his accolades and his pension. from Auntie.

    English Sporting

    Yes Kevins elastic band was legendary. I shot with him once at Catton Hall, on the right hand side of the woods was a slow incomer, he took aim, left it to the very last second and an identical bit of clay hit my hand four times on the trot. That my friends is precision shooting. A very talented lad. from Auntie.🙂

    Stopping drinking

    I started smoking when i was about 15 years old, which became a serious fag addiction of 60 per day. I stopped on April !st 1980 because I wanted to and I have never had one since. Observations which i later realised, I had lots more money. I could walk much quicker up hills. Other people that smoked smell horrible, most folks who give up smoking realise that they pong but don't really understand that the smell you give off from your clothes and hair is just of smoke but the smell from your breath is like **** or worse. I started drinking when I was 15 and stopped when I was 18 , after a very nasty overindulgence and made myself extreemly sick. Observations which I later realised, I had lots more money. I became very popular as i drove drunks home. I didn't even like the taste of any kind of booze. Just spend a night outside the pubs and clubs or A &E and that is enough to keep you away from it forever. There is a real stigma attached to folk that don't sup on an occasion, god knows why. give me a glass of Tizer anyday of the week... Cheers from Auntie.

    Fjords Cruise - Recommendations

    Try to find yourself a real independent travel agent, if you go into one of the multiple shops they will only offer you the mass market "cruise"like Butlins floating hotels. from Auntie.

    Fjords Cruise - Recommendations

    I used to work for Fred Olsen in the 70's before i had my own travel agency, Fred Olsen used to act as the general sales agency for the aforementioned Hurtegruten" The Norwegian Coastal Voyage", in my opinion it is the only way to see Norway. A ship leaves Bergen everyday and sails up the coast calling at all the small towns and villages, picking up passengers and dropping kids off to go to school. The cabins are very comfortable and the ships sail up through the Arctic circle and turn around on the Russian border at Kirkenes.The best times to do this trip are May, June July to make full advantage of the long days. I could name a hundred reasons for doing this journey rather than on a plastic cruise ship, the main one is that these ships are part and parcel of the local way of life but best of all they actually can fit into the smaller ports that the larger ships are unable to go.. Also the big ships disgorge hundreds of passengers at very small ports and completely overwhelm these beautiful places.. As you don't sound too thrilled with the prospects of a "cruise" this could be your chance of both enjoying a truely brilliant trip,. Pick yourself a brochure up from a proper travel agents (not a holiday shop) or look up on the web and ask them to send you one in the post. from Auntie.

    Moorland fire in Manchester

    The idea of digging ditches is to dig them and then soak them with the reservoir buckets of water this creates a decent fire break, its not the surface burn that is dangerous its the underground peat burning that causes the unpredictable spread, from Auntie,.

    Moorland fire in Manchester

    There is only wildfire marginally on Saddleworth Moor most of it is above the Carrbrook reservoir and the winds in the main have been keeping it there but the wind is changing now and this could push the fires over in the crowden area above woodhead. The damage is severe as it is still burning actually under the surface and with the winds the fire could erupt in different areas at anytime. This moor will need many years to recover most of the land is owned by united utillities with some in private ownership., that's why it is not burned in strips regularly. The farmers and keepers have been up there all the time as have the local mountain rescue team all helping the fire men. THe fires in Southern France or not on tinder dry peat bogs. from Auntie.
