  1. Welcome aboard the good ship NBN, Malcolm
  2. We were waiting for the tide to go up the Bure and took a trip down to the sea for an hour.
  3. It's so good to see marine firms comimg to and expanding in Norfolk. Although these aren't Broads boats it shows a belief in the county's vast experience in boatbuilding. https://www.edp24.co.uk/business/yacht-builder-in-wroxham-and-ashmanhaugh-recruits-1-6755866?fbclid=IwAR01e7LSomzwT9mmBDMe8FPL8YgYp2TVoy9nLk0dNUAvBjvo7HLhn0htMPA
  4. Because it maximises income.........
  5. I've just read through the EDP article (twice) and it certainly didn't depress me. All the precautions are temporary measures designed for our own safety. Although we certainly won't be going out this weekend we are planning a visit to the Ford (Larling Angel) next weekend. And yes, with all the afore mentioned restrictions, two friends and our dogs will hope to bask in the sunshine and enjoy a friendly, cheering pint of the Best! (Our beloved Hockham Eagle has decided not to reopen just yet; they have two children, a 2 year old and a 2 month old). We shall raise a glass to all old p
  6. Andy, I'm truly saddened to hear that, especially how in recent years you seem to have turned around Freedom. I always attempt to read your posts and you have been ever-helpful to so many of us with your kindness an excellent tips on "how-to-do-its". Our very best wishes on whichever path you choose to tread next .
  7. Well said, Ian! Our mutual problem is that lockdown is endless until a vaccine is produced; in my case age and Mary-Jane's health problems. I can't see any return to whatever was normal until such vaccine arrives and tolerance returns to our streets.
  8. That's really very good as the current average price for red diesel is 50p/L and the Fuel Duty 58p/L is everywhere. Well done SS!
  9. And you don't need to iron anything as no-one is likely to notice!
  10. So very well written, John. Thank you. Both Iain and Alan were good friends of mine and and your final sentence says it all for me. To them both I offer a toast for a life well-lived.
  11. I was reminiscing about the huge variety of pubs we are lucky enough to have on the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads when I came across this pic of the dog and his Boss. Anyone like to fill in the details?
  12. D46, you may or not know that Maxwellian was the only Member who offered to take on the "ownership" of the NBN when Jonzo had finally had enough of us all. Without that commitment I doubt we would still be here. And yes, I do know what I am talking about, because I was the Chief Moderator then and even I refused to take it on with all the associated aggrevation. With these thoughts in mind perhaps you might "moderate" your tone of posts, please?
  13. Me too, Marsh. Backin '02 just after my airline had folded. They didn't have the courtesy to even reply...............................
  14. We have an exciting new vacancy for a full-time Ranger to join our team based in the southern Broads (£22,462 - £26,317 per annum). The successful candidate will ensure safe and proper use of the Broads area by means of patrolling, liaison, education and enforcement on both land and water. They will also have knowledge of the Broads, good boat handling skills and experience dealing with emergencies. Aptitude in practical conservation work, leading teams of staff or volunteers and demonstrating good communication skills and the ability to interact with a wide range of people will also be
  15. Karen a lady of leisure! Whatever next, Neil? Have a great weekend away and we look forward to seeing you both in the New Year.
  16. Thanks for that, it works! I've been having the problem for months and only just read this thread. I'm using Firefox.
  17. There's going to be a fair bit of scraped 'glass on that middle pic, Alan!
  18. So they're down by £3,300,000 in other than "National" interests? Is a reasonable wage £29,588 nowadays? That's the "average" national wage here in the UK and you could re-employ 111.5 staff with that. Here's what the RNLI typically pay now: https://jobs.rnli.org/wd/plsql/wd_portal.list?p_web_site_id=2464&p_function=map&p_title=All+current+jobs Still, it's worth bearing in mind that the highest paid jobs in the country belong to chief executives and senior officials, who earn a median of £97,000. So the £189,000-a-year chief executive Mark Dowie isn't doing too bad, is he?.
  19. What a great shame indeed. A true professional, ever with a smile and helpful advice.# They'll have a very hard job replacing him!
  20. Several years ago it was so bad at the WRC that they obtained permissin to eliminate the whole flock on the grounds of safety. That is, peeps slipping on it and falling in. It made the WRC a heck of a lot nicer place to stay!
  21. I was fortunate enough to arrive, with Great-Granddaughter, at my Granddaughters house in Hemel Henpstead early yesterday afternoon. The television set was tuned to Sky cricket and Stokesie and Jonny B were batting with an England result looking very positive. To my incomprehension (and rage) Bairstow threw away his wicket with a senseless attempted shot. It just isn't good enough and Paul's words above were leaping off my lips at that time! And then, truly, words fail me. Yes, even me, Peter! Magnificent, colossul, unbelievable, prodigious, titanic; I can't find enough words to desc
  22. A Warm "Welcome Aboard" the good ship NBN, Wayne.
  23. Exactly what I was originally trying to suggest..........
