    Big Event 3

    I'll put this in here to so it can be found by others.
  2. This sprang to mind this morning on the way to work. Couldn't figure that it was half penny worth after saying it over and over. http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/halfpennyworth
  3. Needs some ampitheatre seating with a projector so can have drive-thru/walk-thru cinema
  4. Minimal details here from NPL http://www.newspostleader.co.uk/news/local/public-can-see-plans-for-town-1-6695184
  5. There's already the information board outside of Tesco but I must admit I can't remember what is on there.
  6. It's just been refurbished with funding from Sita Trust I do believe. Check out leading link's website for the details on it. http://leadinglink.co.uk/index.php/news/216-former-miners-picnic-venue-big-reveal
  7. What if people had to summarise Bedlington in one word/image/picture/collage. Black Bridge Market Cross The Font Stepping Stones
  8. I would imagine it would be a full refurbishment if it was a chain like Toby. Can't be a bad thing having some competition for spoons as the only place for Sunday dinners up that end is la torre or market cafe.

    Big Event 3

    I couldn't make it unfortunately as I had to work but heard it was good.
  10. I've been meaning to get up there and get some shots of the sunset as it sets nicely over the top of Plessey late on.
  11. The problem in Iraq has a direct correlation to Syria in that as much as Saddam Hussein was a peril in the country, ousting him has left this space for the ISIS rebels to fill. As much as Saddam was no good he ruled with absolute power so none of the jihadists were able to use Iraq for the means that they are now. When we invaded/assisted in 2003 we removed the power from the state and as much as we tried to reinstate a democracy, the country has to be reliant on all sides within the country seizing the moment and creating a government that is able to withstand such forces. Unfortunately this hasn't happened hence the rather simple take over which is taking place at the moment. We can't go back in but feel compelled because we have already been there and acted as some kind of catalyst for the situation now. And as GGG says Assad being voted back in is a sense of mis-achievement for the whole country but with an over ruling majority wanting Assad in power it's much like the struggle in this country in that people may have made the decision to vote based on the fact that there is nobody better to vote for. It's a sorry state of affairs on the news at the moment with the Boko Haram and the shootings in America/Canada, Syria, Iraq and the Russia/Ukraine conflict. I for one am glad I don't have to make the decisions that may dictate the lives of thousands.
  12. I don't personally believe that Iran is an enemy of ours but that something does need to happen to prevent further insurgency in Iraq as the ISIS movement gives more reason to go into Iraq than in 2003. Damned if we do and damned if we don't like in Syria but it is appalling what is happening, however I wouldn't believe all of the hype with the mass executions as the photographs weren't verified independently and were limited as to what the mainstream media was showing you. Either way something needs to be done irrespective of borders and history. Tony Blair should also keep his tray shut.
  13. Opt out http://medconfidential.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/caredata_trifold.pdf http://www.thebigoptout.com/wp-content/uploads/93C3_letter_to_GP.pdf http://www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk/optout/optout.pdf Complete the form and hand it in to your GP surgery. I personally think it should have been opt in but where would they profit?
  14. Taken at the top of the antenna of the original World Trade Center
  15. Post your pictures in here, silly or otherwise. Car security?
  16. It's not voting online Adam. Just registering to vote which in turn updates the electoral register.
