    I guarantee.

    disconnected landline minths ago, always spam calls. However, I'm sure my buddy must have installed bugs when he's been round here. The minute my dinner's on the plate, I've just put my jacket on to go out or I'm half way through an email or ...............................hang on, it's me mate on the phone, I'll be back in a minute ............................
  2. I put on my red shooting socks on this morning then put on the yellow garters in readiness for beaters day. My wife flicked the tassles and said "they look like morris dancers socks" !!!😡🤬
  3. one of the good ones one of the good ones😉
  4. 50p worth of improvements to Ramsey so far🙄
  5. Normal US policy. Provoke a country until they have to retaliate then use that as an excuse to invade under a pretence of 'self-defence' or 'peace'. The US has never been able to tolerate the Iranian revolution and, ever since the fall of the Shah of Persia, has been trying to bring Iran down so they can dominate the oil supplies in the middle east. That's why they installed and armed Saddam Hussein and waged a 6 year war by proxy. Once they got their backsides kicked then Saddam became a liability so 'weapons of mass destruction', none of which was ever specified or even found. A look at an atlas tells the true story. Every country destabilised at the moment, from Ukraine, where Russia were forced to annexe Crimea to secure their only access to the Med, in a 'U' shape all the way round to the South China Sea and Japan, forms a buffer zone between Russia, China and US controlled Arabian oil. We were practicing these scenario's when I was in the RAF back in the '70's and they're still going down the same route knowing where it ends up. A 'glow in the dark' world. Our military is totally dependent upon the US including our 'independent' nuclear deterrent so when the US says jump then we have no alternative to saying "how high Mr President"?
  6. Sorry, thermal gliders is my thing, I'm sure there must be some RC clubs around Birmingham to help you get airborne with your helicopters. Check the BMFA site for clubs.
  7. I'm always doing it. Shooting, fly fishing, rc model aircraft, playing in a ukulele band, on committees for various groups along with family commitments. Trouble is that I cut down on the things I'm doing, to simplify life, then fill the spaces with new things.🥺

    No, you can't!!! Regardless of the fact that it is unmanned it is still endangering an aircraft. There is no idea where it will end up once disabled and the batteries can be a significant fire hazard if damaged. The idea is, of course, that if the drone is being flown illegally i.e. too close to you or your house or out of line of sight of the operator you would be able to report the drone, the operator could then be identified via the register and appropriate action taken against the operator. In practice, of course, it's highly unlikely that the operator will be identified, however, at least the company administering the unmonitored register can make a nice little profit out of all of us aeromodellers who have operated aircraft for decades without incident, accident or inconvenience to anyone being fully insured, competency tested and within all CAA regulations. Just my little gripe💩 Right, must go and check my finances ready for when they impose a tax for breathing🤬

    I've used rc gliders in the past to take aerial photo's. One thing I did find was that, although I got some nice photo's of the local town, I found the field I was flying from was much more interesting. What appeared to just be a plain grass field from the ground revealed many more interesting features from the air. The field showed it had at one time been marked off in large squares, apparently to stop aircraft or gliders landing in the 2nd world war. It also revealed an area where furrow cultivation had taken place in the past as well as outlines of buildings that had once stood alongside the river and a disused swimming pool that had at one time been fed by the river.
  11. I'd like to think he would at least send me a doughnut😁
  12. and they died without a murmur🙄
  13. The turnout was slightly down but still a healthy 67% but a lot of commentators are blaming the drop on the weather. They're not taking account of the fact that in my constituency, Cambridgeshire North West, myself and two of my friends abstained because we didn't have anyone we could vote for. Yes, Boris is pro-Brexit but I didn't want to vote for lack of investment, in real terms, student debt, including nurses struggling to pay for their own training in the NHS and even greater PFI debt. As for the other 3, well nuff said. However I do know that, even if I did have someone to vote for, like an independent for example, then I know Shailesh Vara would still have won because Cambs as a whole is always true blue. I'm not complaining about the result but I do feel disappointed and I feel disenfranchised. Nigel dumping a load of his candidates, Ukip disappeared, not a single independent candidate so it was a tactical stitchup. I'm sure there must be plenty of others who felt that they were voting more out of a sense of wanting to use their vote rather than voting 'for' something. As I've said before, I'll never vote again.
  14. I voted for Brexit and still want Brexit but I don't want Conservative policies. I was going to vote for Nige 'til he back-peddled and did the dirty. I was going to vote for Pullen who, having been dumped by Nigel, was going as an independent but is now standing in a neighbouring constituency. Now I have a choice of Labour, Green, Libdem or Cons, none of whom I'd vote for. So 'abstain' will be written on my paper and I feel that myself, and thousands of others are being denied our say because of the constituency system, instead of voting at a national level. Whatever the result it will be skewed and not a true representation. This will be my last ever vote and it won't count for anything☹️
