Re: Armed Robbery

I think £25,000 was mentioned but it was in a safty box I think and i'm sure if they are forced open the money is covered in a dye that makes it useless. It is against the law to carry a knife in the UK as far as I know, I remember when I was a Pilot apprentice in the 1960s I carried a sheath knife ...

Armed Robbery

I was having lunch downtown when the owner told us there was an ongoing robbery at Barclays bank in King street, South Shields. https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/south-shields-police-incident-live-14283456 I mean to say you expect this sort of thing in Texas or OZ but not in good ...

Re: Want to go to Mars?

The Universe has always fascinated me, its mind blowing, can our brains even imagine infinity, its been calculated there are more stars out there than there are grains of sand in the World and many of our closest Stars have planets, so the number of planets must be huge (huge doesnt really cover it)...

Look on the bright side, once China own Australia they are unlikely to nuke you.

Re: How old is old?

I'll be 70 in July and I find it hard to believe, I often see people apparently younger than me and refer to them as old, until my wife points out they are maybe 10 years younger than me, in my mind I'm still about 40 :-)

Wind ups

We got a phone call from our travel company the other day advising us that they are building a new hotel close to the one we go to in Tenerife, they said there was some noise from the building work. We already knew because we keep in touch with the hotels web site. Anyway they offered us a choice of...

Re: Kindness and Understanding

I have expressed my opinion on religion often on here, but I have always respected those who have religious faith whatever branch of religion they follow, Ralph is right when he says people have always explained the unexplained by referring them as an act of god or gods but my hope is, that as educa...

Re: Kindness and Understanding

I suspect a lot of what Niagraa writes is under the influence of drink or d*ugs, but to make a post inciting violence against anyone let alone a leading politician is a step too far in my opinion, there are a lot of nutters out there and not all are keyboard warriors like Niagraa some might be embol...

Re: Kindness and Understanding

I was chatting to a guy recently and Sandancers site came up and he said he was surprised I was a member of a racist site, reading your drivel over and over I can see why people logging in to Sandancers would think its turned into a site for race hate. These days I dont comment as much as I used to ...

Re: Merry Christmas

I thought Xmas was to celebrate the birth of Christ, the date of which is disputed, if such a person existed in the first place, many factions of Christianity think the date is around the 6th or 7th January, but it was convenient to take over the celebration of mid winter. What Santa and Lapland hav...

Re: Dislike Snow.

I not an engineer, but in the case of the coastal mines we had around here they flood with sea water as soon as they switched off the pumps, which had to be running 24 hours a day all year round, they flooded, with north sea oil maybe the same. I expect oil taken from land based oilfield will be sub...

Re: Dislike Snow.

I'm not so sure, we are turning fossil fuels from solids and liquids trapped underground into gasses released to the atmosphere this must have an effect I think its just the level of effect that is in question.

Re: Merry Christmas

I love Xmas time, young children so excited about Santa coming, older ones pretending to believe just to make sure they get lots of gifts, :wink: eat, drink and be merry, love it all, but I cant pretend to believe in a religion for one day of the year, I honestly just cant believe how in the 21st ce...
