24hr Moorings

Hi John, (and all) 

The only way i can think of as to why that should happen at Sutton is because (i believe) there is only one 240 leccy post and possibly the fisherman was set up there to use it?. Having said that, there`s still plenty of mooring space beyond it.

When I was fishing where the leccy point is there were no moorings, water or electricity just a bush with a kingfisher in who was catching more than me though I did catch a bat

It’s when life was a little less complicated Cap’n Jay. No mobile phones (which you could carry in your back pocket anyway!), no social media (which meant people talked to each other face to face), no YouTube (so embarrassing images of your helmsmanship weren’t displayed for all to see) and you could sit and fish and watch kingfishers without a boater demanding you move because he/she wanted your spot. You’d have liked it I’m sure. :default_icon_kiss:

Good heavens no, life was more colourful then! (You could use the word colour then without worrying you’d said something wrong!!) :default_norty:

Life was more colourful in a 1980? So do I want a 1980? Is it better than a 1960? 

I use the word colour all the time and never worry I've said something wrong. I say lots of things that I should worry about being wrong. I'm doing it right now :default_biggrin:

I like pigtails. And ponytails. They are very useful :default_norty:

Nah, this is a proper TV Mr Fire Sir 

For the record 625 started in early 60's (64 I think) with BBC2 

405 transmissions were finally switched off around 1980

Dual standard TV's with complicated and unreliable switching systems :default_biggrin:

 

See we've gone off topic again! :default_norty:

That's a TV??? I'm not sure about watching Netflix on that weird rounded HD screen, but let's be honest Mr Nog....you've been trying to fix this 'TV' since this 1960 thing that everyone is talking about haven't you? :default_smiley-angelic002:

My word, how unusual. Blame Cap’n Jay. This topic was all quite straightforward until he came along!! Bless him, he is so innocent and naive. But I suppose we must continue to indulge and educate him. :default_smile:

Of course you should blame me for the thread going off topic, it's what I do :default_biggrin:

As for being so innocent and naive, :default_rofl:

I get all you lovely ladies "indulging" and "educating" me, I'm not as daft as I look.

well its very close to touching on politics, but having met Boris, I can safely say he isnt the buffoon he acts, he gets away with a lot more with the buffoon act though.

It is amazing how much you can get away with acting like a buffoon
