    Religion - I just don't get it!

    Now here is a subject that probably will go right off the rails and start the insults off. I'm not talking about all the religious(and non religious) wars I'm talking about our personal experiences and up bringing. My story is that I grew up in a very poor, single parent family on a council...

    All you scrabble players

    I love playing scrabble(whether on a board of my Iphone) and I think i'm not bad but now the makers are to allow proper nouns in the rules. Good move? I don't think so, you can claim virtually any word now as long as you can prove it is a word. How does it work with a dictionary for checking...

    English goalkeepers

    I was just watching a bit on Sky about English goalkeepers. There was some great ones on there, Gordon Banks, Peter Shilton & Ray Clemence amongst them but it really highlighted how we are short of class goalkeepers. For most of the last 40+ years we have had world class keepers but we now...

    C4 tonight 9pm

    is a documentary about the no win, no fee adverts you see on tv. I saw a little bit about it at breakfast time this morning. The adverts say you get 100% of the claim but the claim by the lawyers is sometimes several times more. One case on this morning the claimant got £3000(against a...
