That may be so ...... it's just unfortunate that more often than not the words preceded by the "So," are not really worth listening to !

Re: Very small things that piss you off but shouldn't really...

People who put the word "really" at the end of every sentence. They don't do it when they write a sentence, perhaps that's the problem - they can't write. tom A rich tapestry of dialect. I like the Yorkshire "Now then!" which can be a greeting or a scolding and a lot between. There used to be a tre...

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

Here's an interesting challenge. If you posted on, as a rough guide, up to the third page of this thread, go back (somewhere around early February I suppose) and reply to yourself quoting the original post.

Re: Very small things that piss you off but shouldn't really...

Surprised mine hasn't come up before (or maybe I've missed it). Those facebook posts that that end "I bet I know who will share this", "Bet no-one shares this" or "no-one cares enough to share this" really piss me off. Frankly, I don't give a shit and I won't be manipulated by attempted emotional bl...

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

The Sun says ‘BORIS Johnson has done the right thing lifting the NHS charge for migrant health and care workers. It was unjust that they had to find hundreds of pounds to use the very system in which they work.No one knows better than Boris the vital role they’re performing.And it is a mark of stro...

Re: Route/POI advice for a E England trip please.

Over the Humber bridge then North to the Wolds for some good country lanes with great views. Through Beverley to Driffield, Fish and chips at Wetwang, nice cafes in Malton. Yorkshire Air Museum at Elvington (just outside York, where I think that numpty from Top Gear crashed). A bit further North and...

Re: Ferry bookings .... Refunds ??

Surely if you book a trip (that is out and back) as one transaction, then if the outward journey is cancelled then the whole trip is cancelled as they are not fulfilling their side of the contract?

Re: Wednesday

A big point of the lockdown was to prevent people ending up in hospital due to non-Corona related things, such as motorcycling, work, even driving. If you stay at home, stay local, the chances of you injuring yourself is small - a hospital is the last place you want to be cos you will probably catc...

Re: Guilty Pleasures
