Re: Swarm of bees

Apparently they are worth good money to a bee keeper, sometimes over £100.

Re: Favourite Museums

I found a great museum on Saturday, RAF Tangmere. The appearance from outside was of a handful of huts, I said to a friend that it won’t take long to get around. I was very wrong, it’s crammed with fascinating exhibits and lots of hands on exhibits. Here’s me on the Lightning simulator: https://yout...

Re: Greatest Post War PM

Thatcher changing housing from a basic social need to a middle class investment opportunity has been a social timebomb. I really believe that many of our problems today have a link to this.

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

So anway, In the film (can't remember which one} the time traveller goes back in time many times to try and prevent the death of his girl friend, all to no avail I thought that was Superman . And IIRC, he does manage to bring Lois back to life. Something about zipping into orbit around the Earth, f...

Re: BIRTHSTRIKERS ... !!

really, must we play the round the houses game? anyway, my point was clear, the more intelligent (the word is in the dictionary) women will be/are the ones to stop reproducing, and they would have been the ones more likely to have produced children who may be able to get us out of any imminent mess...

Re: Corbyn to be PM within 6 months?

Actually, I don’t have a problem with increasing tax and properly funding the NHS and public services. It’s more his world view, he seems to come from that particular group of 60’s Vietnam era lefties for whom America ( and by proxy Israel ) is the greatest enemy we face. I think his foreign policy ...

Re: Corbyn to be PM within 6 months?

I’m hoping that the young Momentum element will stop paying their membership fees when they don’t get their glorious revolution at the next election. Then maybe more moderate members will be able to have more of a say in policy and leadership. I’ve actually joined recently in the hope of adding my v...

If in Portsmouth, try the Royal Armories at Fort Nelson.... especially if they are firing


Good idea, I’ll give it a go. I didn’t realise they “fired”, sounds excellent thanks.

Re: Techno Innovation?

I bought a new record player last year ( a Rega P6 ) and love being able to play my old vinyl again. Albums hold emotional memories that Spotify playlists just can’t compete with. I’m also very wary not to become reliant on Spotify for my music, what if they jacked the prices up after I’m retired an...

Re: Currently listening to .......

BBC4 showed a documentary about Don McLeans American Pie album last week. I’ve always thought the song was fairly good, but now I think he’s a genius and will buy the album. Well worth watching on catch up.

Re: met office

I like the Met Office. I have a soft spot for them for calling D a Day right and feel the BBC shouldn’t have dropped them. I’ve even invested in their weather app.

Re: Beaujo For PM

It amazes me that the Lib Dem’s haven’t been able to capitalise on the unpopularity of the 2 main parties. How do you know they haven't? It will only become clear at the next General Election. Personally, i believe the Lib Dems have been punished enough since their 2010 collaboration with the Tory ...
