General / The Two Funeral Services
« on: 10 January 2014, 10:35:21 am »
I am sure I am not the only one, who is finding comfort that Tims & Drillers Services are on the same day and the same time, I think all of us, will be thinking of the other foccer, no matter which service we attend.  No one should be feeling torn between the two, they should just go to whichever service they want to attend, in the certainty that at both services we will be thinking of them both

General / Sad day - Benny Gone
« on: 26 June 2012, 07:10:21 pm »
well Benny has left to go to his new home, my lovely fazer, who sat patiently waiting for me to be able to ride him again.

on the plus side, he bought a huge grin to Chris who has bought him

on the minus side - he is now having a sex change, as men can't ride male bikes apparently

thank you Benny for all the fun we had - enjoy your new home

General / new home build regs - light fittings ??
« on: 01 March 2012, 10:16:59 am »
very puzzled, went to a friends house last night, and 2 of their bulbs had blown, when i asked where the spares were, they said that they have to order them off the internet as they are 3prong bayonet fittings, as its a new build house (about 5yrs old i think) - given all the new houses being built, you would have thought tesco and such would be teeming with them - but i have never heard of them, is there a chance this could be a load of bull, and would their be any harm in swapping the pendant light fitting back to "normal bayonet" fittings so they can use the normal stick low energy bulbs ??

General / I won something
« on: 17 January 2012, 05:01:25 pm »
really chuffed, a while ago i filled out a form following a trade exhibition we had attended, there was a prize draw, but i just wanted to let them know some really frustratingly bad bits about the 2 days there, as well as some good, i got a phone call, could i help with a phone interview to expand on what i had written, it would take about 30 mins and i would get £25 cheque, idid and the cheque duly came, same lady phoned me today to say i have won the top prize - an ipad - chuffed or what :) :) :) :)

The annual Springfields Bike Show returns for another year and the organisers have a fantastic show lined up.
  The Bike Show is the first motorcycle exhibition of the year and thousands of visitors join us each year to enjoy the incredible show bikes, buy new equipment for the season, meet the clubs and check out the celebrity guests. Last years show featured TT star Guy Martin and the glamorous Maria Costello.
  This years guests will be Gary Johnson & Mick Grant. Also returning to the show is the World Famous ‘Ken Fox - Wall of Death’ performing over both show days - this will be their first show of the year.
 Don’t miss this fantastic show, a great local event and a favourite for classic, custom and new bikes and a fantastic reflection of motorcycling in the region.
 Admission is just £8 Adults, £6 Senior Citizens and under 13’s free.

aaah in the link, it mentions spalding, but in the post it does not, so edited - SPALDING IN LINCONSHIRE, right next to the Springfields shopping centre, so drop teh Mrs off to look at the outlook centre, and see who spends the most
 Parking is free and gates open 10am.

father xmas is delivering a tablet pc which apparently has a

  • 2GB SD Built In
  • Micro SD card Expandable upto 32GB
  • 256MB RAM
does this mean i need to buy a 30GB sd card to use the exsisting 2 giving me 32, as they only seem to come in 2,8,16 and 32 or can i buy a 32 and it will only use 30 of it and the 2 thats already lurking in it somewhere (expect more silly questions on xmas day when the box is open)

oh and another thing, should father xmas plug it in and charge it, before xmas day so its ready to go, or is the fun of waiting for it to bleep and tell you its ready to use all part of the fun of the day ??

« on: 19 October 2011, 11:09:08 am »
is there any foccer nearby that could please help me understand how to unpartition matts hard drive, at the moment one bit is full, but i cant work out how to move stuff over to the empty side- like all his i-tunes - as then when he goes to play them it cant find them - so i have obviously missed out a needed and simple (not for this foccer) process in it all.

i could bring it round to a foccers house, or probably do it with a bit of phone help
