Caught a snippet on the BBC National News last night. Reporter was in Burnley and interviewing 2 young men, both on zero hours contracts and sharing a single bed sit. Very pleased they voted Tory as "Boris will get us out of this mess". Nolic

Re: PET'S CORNER

Misty was 15 years 3 months when she left us but the vets were happy to operate as they said she had the heart of a 7 year old. These two are lively but obedient. The lady who had them who is now too ill to cope with them brought them up and trained them well. We struggled a bit during the first nig...

Re: LIGHTS IN THE SKY 2013

Came over Blubberhouses on Friday. No sign of Boris O'Storiths or Beamsley Bob. Village rumour is that they have gone to Japan with Mrs Trellis to enjoy the Rugby World Cup. Come to think of it one of the Japanese players looked remarkably like Boris. Nolic

Re: OBITUARIES

The "Crown Jewels" incident was raised by Alan McKewan, self styled expert on everything. He "reluctantly" let it be known that he was party to secret information that they were housed in Skipton, not Clitheroe, Castle during the war. Nolic

Re: GOOD TV

I've liked Line of Duty from the start but I found Sunday's episode difficult because of the frequent use of police acronyms....reminded me of my time in Ofsted. Just checked with Google and The Sun comes to the rescue. https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/8767468/line-of-duty-acronyms-ocg-uco-itv-...

RIP Moh. I thought I'd seen something on FB about her passing and I was going to share on here but when I went to check it I couldn't find it. I didn't want to share in case I was mistaken. Nolic

Thanks Comrade for the reference. Just looked on Amazon and its £94... a bit much for me so I'll see what the library can do.

Re: OBITUARIES

I read an article about Keith a few years ago. Despite his appearance he was a lovely guy. One of his elderly neighbours praised him for the support he gave to her and would not have a word said against him. RIP Keith. Nolic
