Dave, your cricket and rugby teams are absolute legends as far as we are concerned over here. They are IMHO quite simply the benchmark others aspire to.

How about a lobby to BAN all sport from television, or have dedicated channels for it instead of screwing up the main channels schedules, I get sick of S.W.M.B.O. whining about missing her soaps etc! :evil:

I would like to see dedicated channels for sport and soaps  :thumbsup:

There seems to be some anger here, how about a rousing chorus of "O' Solo Mio"?  ;D

Don't forget to include the 'reality' shows! :)

And the thousands of celebrity chefs promoting all these food programmes! The ingredients for some of these alone would add up in price to be more than a RtR loco.
I dont see why I have to pay a subscription fee to (dressed as a licence) the BBC. Don't see why I should pay so much to a service that runs 60% repeats and features little of interest to me. I can choose my gas, electricity, mobile, Internet and phone supplier. Why can't I chose NOT to have the BBC ??? :thumbsdown:

Yes we have the bench mark for Cricket, Rugby Union, a Race Horse and loads of other sporting greats and that is wonderful BUT I for one get sick and tired of having it jammed down my throat day and night, TV, Radio and Newspapers.

Our 6.00pm news consists of 10 mins news, 10 mins adds and 10 mins sport, somewhere along the line they cram the weather report in and its always wrong anyway.

This is the "Angry Thread" so I am having a whinge  :thumbsup: im going back to bed.
Keep on Smiling
Dave.

Rotten evening, Della got in front work with a migraine and feeling sick, packed her off to bed (with empty bowl), put her dinner in the bin, opened my most recent ebay win of N Scale construction vehicles to find they ranged from 1:119 to 1:137 scale  >:(.  Emailed the seller to return them, he told me they were the closest you could get to n scale  :o so I emailed him a link to where he could get 1:150 scale construction vehicles  ;D, repacked them and they are going back tomorrow  >:(

I agree totally! So much money is wasted by them on very poor programmes e.g. The Voice.

 :smiley-laughing: :smiley-laughing: wish it was still like that but the weather over here has gone crazy like it is everywhere else, at the moment we in sub tropical areas are freezing with morning temps of 0 Celsius  and tops of 17 Celsius, this time of the year its usually 8 to 10 degrees warmer.
Keep on Smiling

Blargh

So today start with the carpenter replacing the floorboards in one room where the old chipboard floor has died of old age (and indeed I put my foot through it which is how we found out).

Now we find the plonkers who did the original work years before we acquired the house put the plasterboard wall between that room and the next onto the boards, not along a joist as they should have. So we have an entire wall hanging in midair on dodgy chipboard floorboards, which might explain the small crack at the top.

Now we've got do both floors at once and very very carefully so we can keep the wall jacked up while the new proper floorboards go under it along with some bracing. Which means its spread from one room to two. To add to the fun the second room is the bathroom. The bathroom now looks like it took a direct artillery hit because the "nice" hide it all away toilet and bathroom sink section was built out over the floor so has to come out too along with the loo.

Thankfully it appears the bath is properly mounted on the joists directly.

All because some moron years ago did a hack job. I guess we should be glad we didn't wake up to find the partition wall downstairs.

opened my most recent ebay win of N Scale construction vehicles to find they ranged from 1:119 to 1:137 scale

I don't suppose these are CAT vehicles are they? I have 4 and I'm sure they're around those scales too. Not according to the supplier though who shall remain nameless for now. I may even post pictures and dimensions elsewhere to get others' opinions.

Komatsu and other Japanese style stuff, but way over scale, nice models but way too chunky.  Much better going for the Tsugawa or Tomytec stuff from Hobby Search

Car died approaching a roundabout this morning (no brakes no power steering), narrowly avoided hitting the wall on the other side, got it restarted but off to the garage tomorrow if I can get it home.  Another big bill inbound no doubt  :( :(
