  2. Tolls - Speechless

    Hello dnks34, Your stance is commendable but while ever the Broads is managed by this quango I have a feeling that you are wasting your breath, the good doctor does not seem to listen to anyone including his own officers and front lined troops. Regards Alan
  3. Hi There

    Hello Rob & Caz welcome to the NBN forum. Regards Alan
  4. Great Canal Journeys

    I am really looking forward to the program, not only Tim & Pru but some screening of the Broads. Regards Alan
  5. Shock Closure Of The Buck At Thorpe

    We have found the Kings Head and most of the other Weatherspoons we have been in on our boating holidays to be busy, value for money and often have offers on selected meals such as a free drink or even a free bottle of wine with two steak meals. Regards Alan

  9. Menu From Early 1970’s

    I started work as a apprentice electrician in 1968 the hourly rate was one shilling and three halfpence an hour, my first weeks wages for a full week (5 days) plus an hours overtime one night and a Saturday morning was a little over £5 with the stoppages. Regards Alan
  10. Menu From Early 1970’s

    The introduction of decimal in 1971 gave us petrol of 29 P a gallon, fish, chips & peas from a chip shop at 14 P, well these were Yorkshire prices, I have forgotten the price per pint but in the late 60's I can remember it being 2 shillings and a penny for a pint of Stones. Regards Alan
  11. Its Piccy Time!! 2018 Calendar Here We Come..

    I have deleted the earlier double and triple picture posts. Regards Alan
  12. The Authority Oversteps The Mark?

    That was indeed the case, was it the gravel pits just before Commissioners Cut? Regards Alan
  13. And Now For Something Really Serious

    Hi Ray, I bet they do not get many footballers taking part with the stingy BBC it would be well under their pay grade. Regards Alan
  14. Would You Buy An Edwina Burgee?

    No, We already have a wind indicator and a NBN burgee on the boat. Regards Alan
  15. The Authority Oversteps The Mark?

    I blame it on the cheese sandwich I had for lunch Regards Alan
  16. The Authority Oversteps The Mark?

    Whitlingham strikes me as an under used resource, yes there are some water activities on there and it would seem a good place to walk dogs. If it was connected to the river I am sure a marina complex with real visitor moorings might encourage more crews to visit the area and provide the city and the Southern Rivers with a new profitable resource. Regards Alan
  17. Let Off Steam In Here !!!!

    The first time we came to the Broads in 2001 we were amazed at the tills in Roys both in the supermarket and the department store, it so similar to the Devon supermarkets. Of course we are on our holidays so time is not too much of an issue. Things have speeded up since then but it is still quaint, we always thought how the staff would cope in a major city. Regards Alan
  18. Sad Story And Lost Of Id

    I agree with John (mm) those letters are the only proof that someone is using your identity. I would write to the companies involved and inform them that you are not the people they are after but your address is correct and tell them how long you have lived there, keep a copies of all correspondence and send any letters by recorded delivery. Like the telephone preference service you can get a similar service from the Royal Mail. Before you recycle your paper remove any traces of your name, address an identifying codes on all correspondence. Never fill in or answer any surveys, offers of prizes always come with catches. When you fill in guarantees and the like only fill in the sections of your name and address and the item you bought, nothing else is relevant and you can bet that these details will be sold on. If it continues then you must report it to the Police if only for the incident number, this again is proof of what is happening. Regards Alan

    I rather like the picture of the good Dr Packman (looks like a Clive Sinclair lookalike) holding up his world, just a pity he can't spell the Broads correctly. Regards Alan
  20. Edwina, She Say . . . . . . . .

    You have to laugh at the above, sadly most of it is true. It is so must better to laugh rather than shake your fist in anger or cry at the injustice of it all. Regards Alan
  21. Shock Closure Of The Buck At Thorpe

    The price of wine in pubs has always been an issue, most of the pubs on the broads would charge you similar. When we used to go up Bowness every year most of the pubs there charged £4.40 for a 175 ml glass and that was in 2010. Regards Alan
  22. Water Water Everywhere???

    After our winter service in February 2012 we had to wait a few days for the low tides to increase enough to relaunch our boat at Brundall. Regards Alan
  23. Let Off Steam In Here !!!!

    The bin/bins used to be located at the public toilets at Womak Staithe. Regards Alan
