  1. Yep, I think they should be jumping over the advertising boards, arms aloft, right up to the front of the empty terraces/stands. Nodding their heads and taking the acclaim. Should even be giving it the "get-it-right-up-ye" if they score in front of where the opposition fans would normally be! #scenes
  2. I'm guessing the fact that he normally picks up a handful at time, he didn't give it a second thought.
  3. Pal was in TESCO today and in his basket (amongst other items) were 4 snack cereal bars - had to put one back!!!
  4. Former pastry chef to a somewhat pasty chef no doubt.
  5. Full time and No Escape to Victory this time for Max. (What a nice Nazi he was..clapping Pele's goal)
  6. A Deep Six for poor Clive. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/wires/afp/article-8049597/Clive-Cussler-author-shipwreck-finder-dies-aged-88.html Got nearly all of the Dirk Pitt novels up in the attic somewhere. RIP. I note elsewhere that the world's oldest man has died...again. That title seems to be a bit of a poisoned chalice tbh. (Chitetsu Watanabe, 112, passed away at a nursing home in his native of Joetsu, Niigata Prefecture in northern Japan)
  7. Kirk Douglas going means I've now had 5 hits from my 2016 list. Unfortunately, they started popping off from 2018 onwards.
  8. I assumed it was because they didn't like the idea of having to put their luggage at the other end of the plane from where they were sitting. You end up being right at the coos tail when disembarking 'cos no bugger will pass your case back.
  9. As far as food goes - Broccoli and Cauliflower - I can't get over the texture. Don't mind them blended in a vegetable soup but not raw/steamed. Also butter beans - i've gagged trying to get those swallowed (insert Kenneth Williams gif) Away from foodstuffs - I have a bit of a panic about using public loos for a "sit down" visit. I've seen me almost double over with stomach pain rather than use a toilet in a pub or on a train. As I've aged, I have relaxed a bit but still not great. (apologies to anyone eating their lunch and reading this)
  10. 30+ years since i put a CV together - seemed like the thing to do. I suppose my thinking was, if you're sending it out to any number of local employers, you try and cover every base.
  11. Thought everyone put their driving status on a CV?
  12. I'm always amazed at some of the names that are picked and are still alive... I'm convinced (until checking their wiki page) that some of them died years ago...Henry Kissinger, Tommy Docherty and Olivia De Havilland.
  13. My team of immortals remains the same for the 4th consecutive year. Was submitted last week. Game on!
  14. and I picked the wrong 1970 squad members. Think that’s as close to a point as I’ve got in 4 years of DP
  15. Tried to get some domino type pun in but I’m drawing a blank blank.
  16. Jackie Bird and Dougie Donnelly are both good shouts (although Dougie did present grandstand, the golf and some Olympic stuff before Hazel Irvine took over) so he may be recognisable still to some down south). I'd suggest Jackson Carlaw might fit the bill. Only ever an MSP rather than an MP, so his profile will be much lower outside of Scotland. For those of us approaching our dotage, I'd throw in Mary Marquis or Viv Lumsden - both of whom were all over our screens in Scotland but probably not seen too much anywhere else.
  17. Trump needs to be told that the only way he'll ever get "Person of the Year" is to hold on till 2020 and then get impeached - surely no-one would be able to top that for newsworthiness next year?
