I always thought he was ‘carthorse’ or ‘elbows’. You learn something new everyday.

 

He passed that moniker on to Mark Connolly upon taking him under his flailing elbows when he got a gig coaching at Tannadice.

Maybe doesn't get on my nerves, but it does annoy me.

The local Tesco store here in Accrington is on 2 levels linked by an escalator. A sign at top and bottom of said escalators advises customers that they will have to push their trolleys when they get to the end of the escalator.

I just have to remind myself I live in the north of England now.

Don’t really know why this annoys me, but it does. Foreign footballers who are given (what seems to me) stupid nicknames. When a commentator says that so-and-so is nicknamed ‘The little grasshopper’ or suchlike, back in their native Peru / Ecuador / Chile / delete as appropriate, then something inside me says ‘away and shite’. Can imagine this starting up in Scotland. Kieran Tierney ‘The Little Traitor’. Mark Yardley ‘The Big Breakfast’.... just wouldn’t work. All these Latin countries with their ‘The Little Sparrow’ pish.... 

I definitely need a lie down.

Think he means a travelator. 

If not, the worlds fucked.

 

Point taken.

I should have said Travelator.

Well spotted - I was just seeing if anyone was paying attention.

If I was still doing the odd leaflet drop, I'd definitely double up for folk with a folded up bit of A4 with "NO  junk mail" sign. Breaking the mailbox seems a bit much, but only a bit.

The weeded mess in the middle will eventually be a lawn, the dead grass at the front will be gravel.

This is the before (from Google maps), fence got put in last year.

I can't be the only one on here who hopes that a boat from China sails up The Forth to Rosyth and sends a few volleys across your house. Mon the Chinese Junk:
