    Olympics and the 100 metre final

    I posted a link to a quite funny article about the random allocation of tickets.The writer proposed that the contestants should be randomly allocated too.So the sprinters have to do dressage, the weightlifters ... the pole vault.the list could go on. (But keep the ladies volleball.) Ok I know ....ist pig.

    Did anyone get any Olympic tickets?

    Glad you keep an eye on things Cuthbert.J.TRead through all the comments and I think only one didn''t see his style as humorous.Such is life.   Loved to see Coe who often seems a bit prissy in giggles.Anyway if Sir Humphrey wants to offload his Wiff Waff tickets ..PM and I will see if daughter would like take them over.Nothing to do with me I hasten to add. And I am sure you will enjoy the whatever it is, if you wish to keep the tickets.Apologies in advance if it was an inappropriate thought.ce

They were hoping to take partner''s Dad, I think he was quite good in olden times.They like to annoy him and call it Ping Pong whenever possible.ce

    Sorry about your Zimmer AJ Wizard.My older brother has a broken toe. The little oneHe knows it was broken because it really hurt and he heard it crack as well.Very easy to walk into something in the dark that has been a feature for decades!Nothing Much you can do but strap it up with gaffer tape.Seems the little pinky is the most (well almost) important part of the anatomy. ce

    Delia cartoon...how wrong?

    As a chenalman and a skolar I always spring to Delia''s defence.Could have been much worse. Interesting article for a non football follower.ce

    Just to prove my Sherlock Holmes credentials. Shuck. Followed a very silly motorbike on the A 149 to the next village.(Thanks streetview.) End of Well lane Brancaster is the little studio. He does advertise.Anyway that''s me for the day.  It is thunderous in London. My brother wants me to sell up and move to the Cotswolds.Why would I do that when Norfolk has so much to offer?ce

    I sometimes wish. "Kick it off"...( good name for a beer!), that I had grown up in sensible parts of the world than the heat of Persia an Iraq, or the snakes and spiders in Papua.  Norfolk will calm you down after graduation.Old Shuck. The boatyard/chandlery (thanks google sattelite) is off the main road almost adjacent to a road called Common Lane.Snellings. I decided to pop in on the off chance of a bit of sailmaking information. Lo and behold. Canvas anchor bags.The shop gave me the makers name. And we had our repairs done. He was retired but seemed to like being busy.As he had a lot of green canvas webbing ready for,as mentioned, the gamekeepers of Holkham. We have green canvas seats and "anchor bag blue" bags to hold the pieces in. We approached his house from Docking so it must have been  towards Thornham.One day I will be relegated to "It''s not just football". I am just off down the A149 streetview to see if I can find the canvas makerce

    I think that is why we ended up inland. Basically cheaper and nicer too. A neighbour for a time was Tariq Ali. The old rich radical.Son played cricket with him. He lost a lot of money backing a play. Had to move.We spent a lot of time retrieving wellingtons trying to collect samphire in your neck of the woods.After 25 years living inland we Tut-tutted about the closed properties too.I do think I have the business card somewhere .I will try.ce
  14. Following this thread I think what did we do wrong over on the other redacted forum.?Most folk ignored comments.I think this thread was funny. muff said. Apologies for spelling.ce

    Re: The "It's not just football" forum has gone.

    For no other reason than boredom I seem to be in the top 75 posts,and what is worse I started in 2006. How many Brothers Karamazov could I have written in that time.(Shakes head in shame "I post here as I have nowhere to go!ce

    So sorry Old Shuck. I just cringe everytime I open the Telegraph  property pages,and their descriptions.Not to mention the EDP.We are a long way inland.  30 minutes from some part of the coast.I was born abroad in a hot country. Oil was the old mans trade. He bought Roorquie Chairs in about 1950.They were of a Belgian design that were  flatpack,for the Congo. We had them re- built canvas wise by a chapwe found through the Brancaster chandlery shop. A charming man and he had mini-goats in the garden.He created webbing for the shoots at Holkham Hall.. All in all a nice experience.ce

    I love Norfolk for all the reasons decribed above. The open skies, the walk through the woods at Holkham.The train from Dereham to Wymondham and a meal in the curious restaurant on the platform.Heavy horses at Runton.Sorry ,but I am London based,and after a few rentals in Norfolk at Burgh St Peter, we decided to find our own place.Going on foreign holidays was becoming a pain. We''ve been a Norfolk village family for about 27 years now.At village Fetes when I say how long have I been there, folk say "but only Mrs .....  has been here that long"You can''t beat Oxburgh Hall for a visit and a walk.  We made a plan not to mix with the Brancaster set.Apart from Jolly Sailors that is.We even found the Saracen''s Head a few times. I am sure that I will be relegated to the "It''s not just football " forum soon.ce

    On the Ball ale and NCFC

    Quite right Spangles. I was a major user of the edit button when it appeared for a spell.Typing too quickly and a ''can''t be bothered'' attitude to the pervieww button is sending us to the dgos.I am as bad as anybody but would not have used of in such a way. Send me back to the old "furum".Do not know if there is such a word but it sounded fun.ce

    I would be sad to see Nothing Much go down the pan in the spring clean. I was catching up with "Last one to reply wins," only another 800 pages to go!  I don''t think it offended, apart from the fact thatthere was no politics, cussing or spitting. ce

    OT - site problems?

    I wasn''t able to log on for 2 days, and noted Sports Desk Pete''s response earlier.I don''t do football but I did spring to Delia''s defence as any Gentleman would. I was surprised to find the forum I usually post on up and running at first light this morning,well 09.20 actually! Posted a reply to evil wizard and went for a newspaper. But now.It''s gone completely... I clicked without looking and got the Kings Lynn thread. Baffled I was.There was to be a review of the usefulness of the forum and if users could be trusted not to makea mockery of Archant''s code of conduct. Can''t tell if that happened as there is nothing there."Gone ,and never called me mother".ce
