  1. A little bit off topic and I can't speak for the UK but we are getting many people being freed from jail because of being wrongly convicted (only based on the evidence presented in court) I don't remember seeing any of them being found not guilty!
  2. I didn't follow his trial, but he was found guilty, and he was just recently given a hero's welcome home by government officials, the same ones who handed him over in the first place. What was the evidence that fooled everyone (at least those with less than half a brain!)
  3. If the question had been "Who is YOUR favorite musician" I'd say Acker Bilk, (but it wasn't !) Vic
  4. Not a bleeding heart this time! it's got to some devious underhanded dealings. Keep an eye on the trade between countries! Vic
  5. Happy birthday, have a great day! Vic
  6. Happy birthday Esme, have a great day. Vic
  7. Happy Birthday Slodge, hope you have a great day. Vic
  8. Happy Birthday Ms Hair, have a great day, and many, many more. Vic
  9. Slim Whitman, Acker Bilk, Gene Vincent. Vic
  10. Hope you have a great day, Happy Birthday, Vic
  11. I hope your feeling better Joe, it's been a long winter, we're still getting -19c at nights but much warmer during the day, the snow is almost gone, this weekend is supposed to get much warmer, I hope so as I'm off to Red Deer tomorrow, will meet some of your Calgarians (car club members) Take care, Vic
  12. Happy birthday Joe, I hope you have a great day with your family and friends. (hope you have better weather than we have!) Vic
  13. A small repair kit is common at our "Dollar stores," I expect you have a "Pound store"! or something similar. How about the Market! or take the screw out of a cheap pair from "Woolies" Vic
  14. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ronya and you all at this time, I hope all goes well for her. Vic
  15. Thank you everyone for the kind words, Joe it's the BIG 65! we also had very cold weather -42c then high winds and 12" snow last night, (thanks for that good invention the snow blower!) Vic
  16. Sorry for your loss Brian, I see you have another disaster nearby! the weather certainly can be unpredictable, we had -42c at the beginning of the week, that turned into 90km winds and now we are getting quite a snow dump, about a foot since last night! Vic
  17. Oil and gas is formed by the fossilized vegetation from the past, before various the ice ages, tropical fossils have been recently found up in the arctic that tells me we have been through more than one cycle of global warming and cooling. Around here we have dinosaur footprints in the rock being exposed from deep down in the open pit mines, , and were on the top of a mountain! I picked up fossilized things at Cambois. (while picking wiliks.) Britain was once covered with trees, man came along and settled there, it's called progress. This tells ME that this has being going on for millions of years and I don't think we will stop it, we can do our best to make the best of what we have and adapt! If that graph was extended backwards what would it show? Vic
  18. I didn't word it very well, I should have said the "global warming SCARE" theory, I do believe we are going through normal global warming that has been happening since the Earth was formed and most significantly the last ice age, if we weren't then we would still be in the ice age! I don't believe we are the major cause of the warming, that being said as we are only caretakers' of the Earth I do believe we have do our best to look after it, without putting myself in the poor house I do my best. Houses on stilts, they have been doing that for centuries, and Santa is too smart to leave his heater going, especially with cost of heating these days. A great subject for another debate. GGG "helicopter!" now that is the way to get around.
  19. Not when it comes to buying a car! I'll leave that to the politicians and engineers, (I don't buy into the "Global warming" theory) I do buy green and recycle just about everything! Vic
  20. What kind of car do you drive? But what kind would you LIKE to drive? Vic
  21. Off topic a bit, I worked on the construction of Vauxhall motors at Elsmere Port! about 1964, (also work on Blyth Power Station) makes you feel old when.... Vic
  22. If there is a deer around then it could very well be a wolf you heard, they do have a very distinctive howl, wolves are not a problem here just now it's the cougar! Vic
  23. I now know what is ASBO is, and I think it is a great idea, I wish we had it here. This young lady is certainly in the right place to get the help she certainly needs, I hope she gets it before being released back into society for her sake as well as the general public. (but I doubt it!) IMHO I still don't think that this type of forum is not a good place to name names, the discussion about ASBO, violence, crime and criminals etc is great and I welcome it as I see lots of it, (that is violence and crime) Vic
