  1. I caught a bit of the fencing the other night, wow how that sport has developed. It used to flow a bit more back in the day. Now it seems to be two seconds of action interspersed by a period of removing face gaurds, fist pumps and shouting at the coaches. And by both players, whoever won the point!
  2. That's interesting, I wouldn't have known that. Are they clearly marked from the river side?
  3. How long before paddleboarding is an olympic sport?
  4. I like to see balanced views of things like climate change where most of us haven't a clue about the science of it, only personal opinions and wishful thinking. I just hope that political correctness doesn't stifle intelligent, open debate, as it often does.
  5. I've seen one of these in Brundall Gardens showroom: https://e-surfer.com/en/category/electric-sup/ As if the paddleboard wasn't a waste of time already!
  6. Kate First mistake. Elsewhere it says there are about 3,000 members of this forum, how many can you get on board because most of us will be making our way to Richo's yard asap! I'm really impressed you're a solo helm on a 35 footer and I'd love to know how you get on so I can develop my own confidence to get out there solo. Not sure I could manage an i-phone though.
  7. They are not compelled to report it. There is nothing positive to gain by reporting it. I do sometimes think there is another agenda.
  8. Having worked for a supermarket I can tell you that there is no such thing as a weekend. There's 24 hours in a day and sometimes it's dark, that's how your time works. I did get to the high status of having a regular start time 12.30pm and every other weekend off, but the other days off varied week to week on a rota. I was told that if I didn't take voluntary redundancy my start time would be moved by 12 hours to 12.30am. So there's no respect within the company either. I was lucky to get out when I did and I don't care if I never see the inside of another lorry for the rest of my days. Money used to be good if you stayed healthy but enhanced payments for overtime and Bank Holidays is slowly being eroded away.
  9. Earlier this week someone on the BBC news said there may be food shortages. Tuesday lunchtime news someone said supermarkets may struggle with staff isolating. Niether of those seemd to work so on the radio news at 11 the headline contained someone saying there well may be am lack of food on the shelves soon. Give them their due, they are giving it a damn good go. Bog rolls and beans anybody?
  10. Having checked up I can report that the TV producer was also an actor but not so well known: Dennis Vance. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_Vance The obvious question for some would be, "Is he related to DJ Tommy Vance?" Especially as we thought Diddy David Hamilton was in the mix somewhere. No. Tommy Vance's real name was (take a breath) Richard Anthony Crispian Francis Prew Hope-Weston. Imagine the jingle for the Friday Night Rock Show! Edit: forgot to say, I have sent copies of the documents relating to the first owner to his son.
  11. And another thing I've been reminded of by Vaughan's post. 1973 ish I was too young to drive but I did serve petrol part time. It was rationed for a time and there was a nationwide speed limit to cut down consumption of fuel. There wasn't going to be any more petrol. Doom and gloom. My house was built in 1972, low ceilings and parking for one micro car is all you got. I have no idea how it affected the Broads but I imagine evrything may have stopped for a while?
  12. Yup, we binned the doors and fitted net curtains.
  13. That's what I thought but the same could be said for any piece of furniture. We have a small bedroom and still manage to get round without tripping over the bed. I think it may be a marketing thing also; they look nice and trendy in the brochures. I've heard people who use them, curse them, especially tall folk. That said, in my boat it would be really useful. When I first got it the wardrobe doors wouldn't open fully because they hit the bed!
  14. I wonder why they round the corners of the double beds in some boats and caravans? I think I would prefer a bigger bed if the space is there. How does the duvet fit?
