ANY CHANCE OF GETTING THIS GREAT SITE BUZZING AGAIN?
« on: July 14, 2015, 07:32:59 am »
Sorry for shouting - but I wanted people to see there's a new post.

I know we have Facebook and so on, but this was such a cosy and interesting little cyber community and I really miss it.

Come on 623, Muggy, Lou, Goldencup, Andy/DrWho and anyone else I've left out.

Let's talk chocolate/music/books/politics - or simply just bitch!

Ooh go on then, let's bitch!  The trouble is I hardly ever use my pc anymore - just the phone or occasionally my tablet.  So I forget to log onto the site...

I am considered a complete joke by everyone I know because I still use a traditional PC to access the internet - not even a laptop but a genuine old PC. I can sit in front of it, use the zoom button and the mouse and get around things easily whereas smaller screens and integral mouse are no use to me at all.

My phone is a 12 year old Nokia that just phones and texts. I don't own a smartphone, an iphone, a blackberry or a tablet because they are all touch screen and don't suit my visual and coordination difficulties.

So, I still access websites like this using a PC.

I don't know what to bitch about now. 

How about Joey Essex? Is he for real? Can anyone be as thick as he pretends to be? Would you spend £30,000 on a watch if you couldn't tell the time?

Er, I'd be pushed to spend £30 on a watch, let alone £30,000!  Who's Joey Essex?  Well i do know who he is but i've never watched the programme.  To be honest I barely watch TV at all these days.  It does seem a pity that we've almost all vanished from this friendly community but I'm just as bad as everyone else. 
Ah but I did try a chocolate bar that I liked recently - Thorntons with fudge I think it was.  On special offer in W H Smiths.

I don't watch the Essex programme but I read an interview with him in the Radio Times just before the election. To his credit, he was TRYING to show an interest, but was hopelessly (or should I say haplessly?) short of even a basic amount of general knowledge and so could not follow the political ideas at all. For example, at one point he had been talking to Nigel Farrage and was commenting that 'he seems a nice bloke, but what's all this about Europe? We aint Europe are we? And Spain aint Europe. How can it be Europe when it's Spain? Europe's a long way away innit?

Not really eating much chocolate these days but I did notice Wilkinsons is doing Mint M&Ms for £1 a pack so I bought a few packs to put in with my children's birthday gifts (now aged 27 and 29!!).

I know alot of people who still use the trusted PC for the internet and Gaming ( 30 years still game you!)  I do use my mobile for the internet if needing quick access but its crap, since you always end up on the mob lie version.  Tablets I dont trust either.

Joey Essex is up his own arse and needs shot, He is whats wrong with Essex.  He having a laugh about EU surly? I know he has smarter friends, If he really is that stupid there just using him.

Wilkinsons had half pick n mix sale wee while back.     IF we really wont to bitch lets talk about that nasty vile man IDS or our beloved prime mister,  HE has lied, broke alot of promise and lets not forget double OUR NATIONAL DEBT, and spend more than the last labour government in its 13 years. Somehow  only UKIP notice this point...

Hi 6234. Got to agree, IDS is a complete shit and Cameron is filling the House of Lords with rif raf. One of his more recent nominations elevated to the House is the chap who charged tax payers for the cost of having a moat in the grounds of his stately home.
