Re: Is Trump Mad?

What do the US media make of the suggestion that teachers be armed? Was the suggestion really made as it has been reported? The Guardian reports that money may be made available to train and arm teachers, one wonders whether they may choose whether to take part I do wish we had a few more US member...

Re: Virgin East Coast Sale 50% off

when I looked agaon today the special offer piggie trains seem to have been removed - and it aint 26th yet- the 2 trains I was looking at still have the 2 advanced fares I found last night but now at £16 not the £8. so it seems the offer may have been ended prematurely :twisted: :evil: so the offer ...

Re: Virgin East Coast Sale 50% off

The only thing that worries me if booking a ticket for say JUNE 2018 is whether Virgin will still be running the line then as this news report says "Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said Stagecoach would continue running the London to Edinburgh line only for "a small number of months and...

Re: Are you dying for a KFC?

Curiouser and curiouser. It now transpires that KFC are in possession of plenty of chicken . It's just that it's in the wrong place, and they have to get rid of it. Send it across the pond, that's what I suggest. Dip it in a tank of chlorinated water, it'll be fit for anyone over there.... Incident...

Re: Weather Forecast

My father always said the SW could be a bad place for snow when it occured . It often drifts too when it comes. Maybe the colder air hadn't reached as soon as the Met Office thought. It went significantly colder late afternoon here in West Wales. Next week is Brass Monkey Weather if the forecast is...

Re: Billy Graham in heaven?

wasnt that the Puritan ethic. not just evangelical? No. The Puritans decried wealth, and the church's accumulation of it. ah I was thinking of the Protestant Ethic - still not just Evangelicals. seems like the Puritans also part of it though and not as you describe. Just that they were a bit more c...

Re: Billy Graham in heaven?

He failed to fire up the UK as a Christian nation. It just didn't happen. Maybe he had some impact in the USA, but not here. I think probably his biggest victory here was influencing Cliff Richard to become a christian. And what surprises me about that is that when Jet Harris ( Shadows) later on in...
