  1. Yep. Die out to help out, more like.
  2. Fantastic win. First time we've beat Gumpshire in any form of the game for over a decade.
  3. You - or rather, the avatar and name you post under. Roy McFarland.
  4. Cookery programmes, especially those by Madhur Jaffrey.
  5. Great choices there. My current order with BIAB (placed it a week ago) is as follows: Gulden Draak Imperial Stout 1 x 75 cl Barista Chocolate Quad 2 x 33 cl Augustijn Grand Cru 1 x 75 cl Brigand 1 x 75 cl Chimay Grand Reserve 1 x 75 cl Chimay Cinq Cents 1 x 75 cl Corsendonk Agnus 1 x 75 cl Delirium Tremens 1 x 75 cl Gouden Carolus Classic 1 x 75 cl Gouden Carolus Tripel 1 x 75 cl
  6. He always struck me as a very sensible lad.
  7. It's been reported today that the government are considering locking up the 'extremely vulnerable' again. Wear a mask, you bar stewards.

  11. I used to drive through the night back in the 1980s, get there about 6:00 am and the missus would take the kids to the beach while I got my head down for a couple of hours.
  12. Lovely article. Their primary responsibility as Sappers was building Bailey bridges and floating pontoons to replace the original bridges that were bombed during the war. Dad said that him and Reg used to take on the rest of the platoon at football and always win. Reg's party trick was to get someone to open a window in their nissen hut (the little square window set high up on the side) and he would drill the ball straight through it. One of my earliest childhood memories (I would have been 3 or 4) was of us driving up from Gillingham to Little Eaton, and crossing into Derbyshire over the
  13. My father and Reg served together in the army when he was doing his National Service.
  14. Covidsmeller Pursuivant?

On the other hand, those who feel differently to me will take the polar opposite stance. You can spot the exact time where the government changed their policy - the day that Boris went into intensive care.
