Re: The World has gone mad

:shock: I watched a program some years ago about a farmer who brought up his livestock like family pets, they were hand fed and there was a lot of interaction with the farmer and his family and kids, very nice until he said .......and we get premium price at slaughter because the meat is so much bet...

The World has gone mad

A woman from our region is complaining that the fairy story, Sleeping Beauty, is corrupting her 6 year old son in making him believe making sexual advances towards a sleeping woman (the kiss that awakens her) is OK. SHE WANTS THE FAIRY STORY BANNED. Then on our local news this lunchtime, they have s...

Re: Johnathon Pie

I guess i'm old fashioned and think marriage is something between a man and a woman, I have met quite a few gay people over the years and like everyone else most are OK, but I think they should have stopped at civil partnership, which gave them certain rights which was a good thing, but once you giv...

Re: silly things your dad use to say.

Another thing my old man used to say at meal times was "you better eat all of that, you never know where your next meal is coming from" Times were quite hard in the 1950 but he was born in the slums of Liverpool in 1909 and had known real hardship.

Re: silly things your dad use to say.

My Father use to date everything by saying "before the holidays" or "after the holidays" meaning before WW2 or after WW2. His holidays were spent first in Belgium and France then in India and Burma.

Re: THE COLLIERS LAMENT

Yes its accurate it dates back to the days when dozens of ships when back and forth from the North East ports loaded with coal for the power stations of London and the south east of England. Sadly no more.

Shame really this used to be a very lively board with many topics, I,like I suppose our 74 new m...

Re: North Korea going Ballistic!!

How easy it seems to condition people to actually think the unthinkable and except the fact that we may just side into a situation where its acceptable to once again use nuclear weapons on millions of people, surely the Americans and Chinese between them can solve this by other methods.
