Re: What are you watching?

Spot on Solids. They’ve even used the old trick of including a couple of attractive women wearing tight sweaters in International to keep people watching. Tbh it’s worked with me so far. Interesting discussion on U105 this morning on how nudity is much less common on mainstream TV now compared with...

Re: Next season's Heineken Cup

Norn Irn has some of the highest sales of baseball bats outside of the US, but conversely, one of the lowest sales of baseballs :scratch:

Re: Big Merv's nature watch.

:thumleft: Good work Capn.

I spent the last week at a friend's house in the Swedish countryside.

He said they have wild boar, moose, deer, and even bear and wolves in the surrounding forests but all I saw was a hare >ESAD

She was a Country Singer in a Stage Show in Grease singing storyline songs . Better at Denver and Dylan singing a Sixties /Seventies songbook. I wouldn't class her as a "country singer". She sang country songs when she was younger but her voice was more suited to the easy listening/soft r...

Re: What annoys people????

On a related issue. 'Lionesses', etc Why do international teams have to have a wee name? Why can't they just be called England or whatever? I feel a certain amount of the blame for this lies with the New Zealanders. And the Aussies have taken it to extreme, but I worry that it is spreading to other...

Maybe represents the longing of the people of the occupied three counties to return to their rightful homeland....
