The British Monarchy will be in place in another thousand years.

God save the kings and queens that serve during this time.
Let us hope so Andy, particularly if they follow the great example shown by our present Queen.

Re: WOW this site is terminally ill

Terminally ill? Possibly, but I hope not. I often look in without signing in - just to see what is happening. Some of our most 'sparky' contributors have now died and I miss them. The topic could at times be controversial and tongues a little sharp, but it was often those sort of posts that kept goi...

Re: University Degrees

I came to Uni education as a mature student, having followed a Building Trade apprenticeship and then qualified the "hard way" (evening classes and Correspondence Courses) as a Building Surveyor. The opportunity of some formal management training came when my employer sent me (aged 46) on a Managem...

Re: Conversations on planes

It is years since I have been anywhere on a plane, I'm more usually to be found using the train between London and Newcastle. I can quite understand the irritation of people subjected a continuous monologue on a long journey, especially if you are travelling in company. That said, if you are travell...

I was talking to a Salisbury Local the other week. There's a park in the City that no local has frequented all Summer. BUT the up side is...It's now free to park all day before it used to cost £4 .
There's always an upside for some. :D

Historic Salisbury and Bad Acting

It was hard to repress a smile today when watching the two Russians accused of the Novichok killings, giving their explanations as to why they had been in Salisbury. They mentioned such facts as the height of the Cathedral steeple and that it had one of the earliest working clocks in it's tower. Oh ...

Re: University Degrees

Got to agree with you Ralph. Too many useless courses offered at Universities these days. However I do believe that everyone is entitled to a free education to University level if they wish and have the application. Not everyone should being going to Uni .... the entry level requirements should be ...

Re: Tennis Tantrums

There has been an uproar in the US & here over a satirical cartoon depiction of Serena throwing her tantrum. Of course the racist label has been thrown at the cartoonist & the paper he works for the Herald Sun - who are backing him to the hilt. His wife & children have received death threats :shock...

University Degrees

I have long wondered about the clamour by the young to demand as a right, a University Education. I have encountered many people in my life whose Degrees seem to have had very little to do with the career paths they followed. "Ah yes," the will proclaim, but they show that we had the intelligence an...

Tennis Tantrums

Serena Williams, having thrown her dolly out of the pram, abusing the Umpire and breaking her racquet (Shades of John McEnroe there) is having a good whinge about how she is fighting for 'women's rights' and how men have got away with worse. I cannot imagine a worse defence for her conduct. If she i...

I will be coming home to Shields for a brief visit, first for two years and very much looking forward to sitting on the Lawe Top to enjoy the views of the harbour and Tynemouth. Also a visit to the pubs at the Mill Dam with views of the river. Reason? Baptism of my great niece. It will be lovely to ...
