Re: Coronavirus pandemic

Right !!! I'm opening another book. A knighthood for the Chief Constable of Durham Constabulary in the next honours list; - odds 100 to 1 on. I feel the heavy hand of the Home Office on his shoulder leading to a third communique from him announcing that Dominic Cummings was not guilty of any breakin...

Re: Coronavirus pandemic

Hi, PT. I know what you mean about the lack of attention for VE day. The fourth of May is our Remembrance Day here. Normally there are two Remembrance services. The main one is on the Dam Square in Amsterdam where the service is led by the King and thousands of people fill the square. The other one ...

Re: Coronavirus pandemic

Re: Coronavirus pandemic

I watched the Dominic Cummings show earlier in the evening. First there was a ‘detailed’ explanation of the sequence of events which occurred leading up to, and in the course of, his trip from London to Co. Durham. All well and good from his own point of view. Points to ponder :- 1: In the grand sch...

The trouble with referees is that they know the rules, but they do not know the game.

Aaaaahhh.- Now that could be Johnson and Cummings talking.
Is it all right for Shankly but not for Johnson and Cummings ??

Re: A Local Novel - The Aul' Man

Hi Hughie, thanks for this heads-up. - A couple of questions though. 1. To whom is this link available? Is it available to the whole web? 2. And if so, how does that work with my copyright? BTW, The project has been somewhat changed since it appeared on the TTT's. It is now a trilogy with 370k words...

Re: Reminiscences of Ardrossan

Re: Coronavirus pandemic

Looks like England have declared independence from the rest of UK. Typical I always laughed when the English used to moan about the Scots, Welsh and N. Irish all having their own Parliaments, while they did not. This is the final proof that they will never understand that for the last 300-odd years...
