  1. Mod Hat OFF! Just as I have, on my laptop and PC. "Why change it...................?" And look at my cheersbar below, unchanged by me for umpteen years..............
  2. Possibly not, Grace.......... but you WILL meet lots of men who do!
  3. Is there no end to your ingenuity?
  4. In earlier years we might have bought paper knickers... can you still buy them? .......... why did I ask? https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=paper+knickers&oq=paper+knickers&aqs=chrome..69i57.7830j0j8&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
  5. Carole, Hi. When we spent a month or more onboard then how else could we dry our washing? Needs must I'm afraid. We love a vase of flowers onboard but the vase always goes in the sink when we are underway.
  6. Absolutely!
  7. Thank you for that, John. What an immensely powerful and moving narrative that was, Mark, and sincere thanks for sharing it.
  8. Not unless you are stopping off to use the shop, Ian.
  9. Absolutely, Vaughan! With all the dreadful happenings of late one often forgets the wonderful "Pax Britannica" of bygone years.
  10. A lovely read, Andrew. I'm looking forward to your continuance!
  11. I gave up on that route North years ago and now it's A11, A14 and A1. 20 miles further to Newark but a heck of a lot less stressful!
  12. Howard said "Well the Huntsman is well and truly open. Looking very good and obviously popular. Looks like they have built a wall around the back (flood defence presumably). Beer was good (apart from the Doombar) and we tried the grub too which was excellent. Service was efficient and friendly and prices reasonable for the area. Highly recommended. Unfortunately not really walkable from the river". Tell that to Braveheart's crew, Howard! In fact they walked to Cantley and back to Bells Marina last week!
  13. But they're not bikes, Charlie, just fashion accessories!
  14. Read the Guidelines, John! Or here: Flaming Flames - posts that are excessively abusive, attacking, threatening, or aggressive in nature - are unacceptable and will be removed without warning. Whilst debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks, troublemaking or purposeless inflammatory posts. We reserve the right to remove or moderate without warning, any messages that use insulting, threatening, troublemaking, provoking or otherwise aggressive language, or any member who consistently behaves inappropriately. Our decision is final in these matters.
  15. Please let's get back on topic, peeps. I think that it's pretty easy to see where we might be going with this. As a gentle reminder, the NBN does care about ageism. I suggest that we occasionally read our Guidelines again. Trolling , Racism, Sexism, Ageism, Political and Religious Intolerance , Flaming It is very easy to get passionate about things but if any of the above titles are abused then please feel free to bring it to the Mods' attention.
