Hello, and welcome back.
Hello chums, nice weather for ducks.
If you go out in that weather today you must be quackers...
There's some pretty grim looking ducks round my way! Can you tell it's coming up to my 2 weeks off? I think that I must be a rain God but nobody told me!!!!
Why do you think we all take our holidays a different time from you oh 'bringer of the floods'?
You can't blame me for January 2005, as much as you try Prez! See all the chums out tomorrow, YEY!
happy new posts page day :)
Jay reminded me that the Perseid meteor shower is taking place over the weekend...
This year, the moon will be full on Aug. 13just in time to seriously hamper, if not all but prevent, observation of the peak of the annual Perseid meteor shower, which is predicted peak overnight on Aug. 12 and 13. Bright moonlight will flood the sky all through that entire night and will certainly play havoc with any serious attempts to observe these meteors.
The Perseids are typically fast, bright and occasionally leave persistent trains. And every once in a while a Perseid fireball will blaze up bright enough to be quite spectacular. The meteors are more than capable to attract attention even in bright moonlight.
With this as a background, perhaps the best times to look this year will be during the predawn hours several mornings before the night of full moon. That's when the constellation Perseus (from where the meteors get their name) will stand high in the northeast sky.
Of course the bloody weather wont help either:)
Hey we have a new page :-) I will most certainly be looking up into the sky tonight and tomorrow night, as I was telling Cheryl on Wed Paul McKenna says it makes you happy to look up and I have been hypnotized to believe him :-)
Oh your a bit pale there Prez a little hard to read your words :-)
We are off 'dawrn sarf' for a week, but I am taking a laptop so will be able to update the site. Keep the chumments coming.
I have also been testing a chat facility (thanks Ian and Jay) so may be able to craic on in real time on the site.
Hi Nick apologies for Cheryls birthday but we were in NI on hols , just back this Saturday.From photos she had a cracker night.Dee
Hey Chums abd Chuminas. Last night in Swinging Swindon, off to Cardiff tomorrow. No time or energy to post many pics but will maybe put up a couple on Pic Of The Week.
Hope Carlisle is managing without me. I should have told Denis that he is acting Prez in my absence, with all executive powers - including the right to declare war and levy taxes transferred to him.
Power corrupts Den....
Hey Prez. Good to hear the holiday's going well, liking the photos. On the subject of photos, think me & Den have identified your mystery dragonfly now that we've seen pairs of them, it was a toughie! It's called a 'Black Darter', the male & female are completely different & you saw the female. The male is virtually completely in black whereas the female is lighter & more colourful, much prettier- a bit like the chums really :)
P.S. Thanks to your last comment, Den is currently laying siege to the Town Hall, Thanx a lot Prez, ha ha! Also Happy Birthday to Cheryl for tomorrow X
Cheers Mate. Birthday girl is tucked up in bed after one too many Cherry Organic Beers. I have been on the Sam Smiths tonight,mainly the Stout (£2:17/pint!). We arrived in Cardiff and eventually found a very nice boozer.
Sitting in the hotel bar. Cowboys and Aliens was, i Thought, surprisingly good, but Cheryl disagrees.
Probably seeing it in Digital Mastered Surround Sound made it quite the experience.
Off to Caldicot Castle tomorrow then a night of stand up comedy at the local comedy club.
Chester on Friday.
Back in the fold
Nice to see the guys and gals again
I'll be a lot better once I've dispelled the the night owl work syndrom and not doing the "nodding donkey" at the bar
The barrel bar looks nice very oldy worldy :-) Dennis and I were reliving our ice skating experiences at Wed club there were no triple salchow's from us, hope you have a good time. We tried some quiz questions yesterday but I fear I wasn't reading them so well after several glasses of wine. Have a great time you two on your road trip :-)
Oh and of course welcome back Giz what a pleasant little apparition you were when we trotted into Woody's yesterday. :-)
The photos & video are looking good Prez, seems like you're both having a blast. Me & Den are taking Giz out to Ullswater tomorrow, a fun little walk that we discovered last year, for his first walk back in Blighty. We'll be boring you all on Saturday night with what we saw & photographed. Chum chum :)
Comedy club was ace. Really funny bloke called ian moore stole the show. Didn't manage to get to the Castle, ended up in Barry island....what a dump! only one pub and that served crap tetleys and boddies.
Chester here we come....
Shame you missed out on a pint of Brains in Cardiff Prez!
I see we've been treated to a new font Prez! See those chums doing a Sunday club tomorrow! Last club of the hols :( I can hear my liver giving a sigh of relief!!!!
Hope the liver is all the better for a rest Shaggy!
Got a retirement do I'm showing face at & a christening at the weekend so will miss any chum activities, so have a good one whatever you do all of you x
That's a shame NNN.
Have you (and anyone else) got your tickets for Focus in November yet?
The Ritchies the Maka and a Jezza are signed up.
Get 'em while you still can.
I have been very lazy with the website since I got back from my hols. I will put a load of August pics up soon, stay tuned...
Might be naughty & have a few Friday scoops but work is getting in the way at the moment. Focus, er, no, not yet, er, maybe never...ITT may have a say though!
Good to see a few of you on Friday. Enjoyin looking at the pictures posted recently, and Gizmo, wow to you & wow to Ali, she looked beautiful.
Good grief, its me again! Took the liberty of sending Mr Todd a link to the site (thought he might like it),don't worry, I didn't post it on an open forum on cufc online, he left an email address!
I have just become aware of this site, and would just like to say how much i have been enjoying looking through the photos of Silver Clouds Carlisle Return..They of course very kindly allowed me to get up on The Brickyard stage and perform a few numbers with them..one of which 'Emily' a Silver Cloud original that has been a favourite song of mine , since Toddy first played it to me.. The whole day had been a little bit of an adventure for me..meeting up with Toddy, then haring it up to Carlisle from Bolton to set up at The Venue..Then into the pub beforehand.. Where I threw myself enthusiastically into the general good vibe feeling of the occasion..By the time i got to the stage i was more than ready to Party..which is probably why i spent a lot of time forgetting myself and swearing a lot whilst getting the sing songs going...i'm not usually an excessive cusser, so i blame the Carlisle Beer..;) Overall it was a great night..I was pleased for The Silver Cloud lads that it went so well for them...and pleased i had been given the Chance to return to Carlisle..to perform in the same venue (albeit with a Different name) that i had first played back in the early 80's with Spider. ..To those of you who were there , thanks for the hospitality and the friendliness..it was much appreciated, and hopefully it won't be too long before i visit Carlisle again..Good wishes to you all..Col..
It was an excellent night all round Col :-)
Another great night out lots of good crack in the Napper and dancing in Club Rock thanks guys great way to spend a Sat night :-) we rolled in at 4.45am to find eldest son getting ready for British Red Cross for The Great North Run em who is the role model here? well done son proud of ya :-) x
The poor mans planking pics are cool even if we did get them the wrong way up perhaps its a new form of planking for the chumley group looks like they are waiting for a chumtopsy to me. :-) congrats to Neil and Kimbers nice fluorescent hair by the way Neil.
hello glad u got the old fogie bastardy gits om he he he
Thanks for the lovely ppiccie & message- the past 6 months has flown by. Not only do I get the company of a wonderful fella, but I've got a fantastic group of friends to meet up with every 2nd saturday- Thanks everyone. xxxx
Oooops, soz about the spelling mistakes-it's been a very busy week!!!!
Helen I have taken your comment =(Fri, 23 Sep 2011 10:40:28 pm)= off the page due to its inappropriate language. Please remember in future that this is an open forum. Regarding your request I have done as you asked.
Happy Burpday Nic. If it's any consolation when I found out how old you are today i was amazed, I would have knocked a few years off the figure.
You are obviously not burning the candle at both ends enough:)
Love from Mr and Mrs Prez.x
happy 45th birthday Nik!!!!!
Ooops I should have started a Birthday Yaaaaay!....
Happy Birthday NNN have a great one the Chums put in a special request that the sun would shine and hey presto!!!
Any chance you and Ian Tan can come out Sat for a few bevvies? would be great to see you.
Love Nicky & Maka xXXx
Thinking of the logo idea and yes anarchy isn't really us but we could get away with it by adding a ? after the word ~ just a thought :-)
Gizmo was the one who voiced concerns about the word, he felt a right-wing junta may not understand irony, if so they probably woulddn't see the difference a question mark would make.
But having two logos one without the words makes it easier to place in a photo opportunity.
Have a happy Birthday Nic hope Ian's Looking after you and that it's been a good one, Yaaaaay!....
Love Ewan and Ruth
PS, Good Pic of you
Happy birthday Nic. Hoping you're having a cracking day. Go girl, go!!! Yeeeyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy... See you & ITT soon. XX
It seems the birthday girl is on holiday. Her e-mail reply she is back at work on the 3rd October.
That might mean they are away, or as (the other)Nicky suggests free to come out on Sat night.
happy birthdat nicky :) hope you had a chumtastic day
love jay and emma x
Happy Birthday Nicky M. Hope you had a great night & WINNERS of the quiz too...... XX
Thank you all for a great night and for the birthday wishes. Going to the quiz was a good call lots of fun and for a good cause. How clever are we???? just off to massage my head thanks Neil and Kimbers :-) x
Thanks for the chummly messages & a happy birthday to my namesake chummina (still honarary chum?) too x
ps sorry we missed you in club rock, it was after 1am so we went home, managed to catch satan & his chic briefly!
Love the photo's Neil sent you, did a quick google, think it may have been......
'Exhibition: July 1958, revived for the Queen's visit in October 1958.'
???? The crown of flowers looks appropriate?
Yes there was general agreement in the pub that that was possibly what it could be NNN.
Great new bunch of pics, chums. Could this be the start of a new bunch of lookalikes?
Oh look, ITT has broken his duck, yes, I said duck!
Loving Shaggy's page some beautiful photos and scenes :-)
Thanks Nicky. If anyone wants to see more I can burn them a disk with more photos in higher res. X
Nice to see NNN's other half Chummenting.
Listen to Shaggy the Tecchy boy!
Six months ago he wouldn't have understood just about anything of what he just Chummented:)
From a luddite to having his own web page with digital camera photos, talk about personal development (pun intended:))
====NEWS JUST IN====
It's Blytho's birthday night out on the 15th so all Chums and chuminas should be in attendance.
It's also Jay's birthday next week but I believe he will be celebrating it on the Wednesday Club (12th).
Again be there, or be un-Chumly.
Good heads up Prez. True enough, just 4 months ago I'd have thought that ripping & burning was going back to some Viking roots!!! See those out at Friday Club tomorrow, YEY!
Boo hiss, we can't do either due to one or the others jobs & think we have a 50th on the 15th???? Hmmm, my memory is poo.
Me again, love Shaggys pics too, my boss was telling me all about the dipper (he caught me!)
One year on Notting-Chums.
I have just about recovered from it:)
Aye, aye, aye aye, I know, I know, I know....aye aye, aye...
Yep we will always have Nottingham
But where next for the chums to go ?
Happy birthday Jay you young pup!
Many happy returns Jay, youngfellamelad!!!
Happy 28th Birthday Jay hope its been a great one
love Ewan & Ruth
Happy birthday chum. Sorry that I didn't make it this year. Hope you had a guddun!
You will all be pleased to know that I phoned up and complained about the gummy body parts resembling internal organs and how disappointed we all were especially Jay birthday boy (see photo). They are sending an email to the appropriate merchant to check their stock (which should be fun as you can't see into the packet) anyway they offered me a replacement packet but I said alas it's too late for young Jay he's gutted. but I can take the packet back to be reimbursed so that's my quid back then YAY! :-) Hope you had a nice birthday Jay xXXx
Helloooooooooooooooo!? Is anybody there??????????? Its very quiet. I trust you are all well? I have some lime & slime jaffa cake bars, anyone want one?
Yes, still here.
Leave a chumment and start a discussion if you are still using the page, or I will pull the plug on it and use the space to do something more interesting:)
I think everyone is busy preparing their fancy dress costumes.
Looking forward to Sat night...
We hope to turn up early on before our other do, flimmin double bookings!!! Sadly, I think fancy dres is out for us as we have to go on somewhere else afterwards, I may stick my vampire teeth in though!
Um white sheet looking good right now
bloody chumtastic night guys!!! thank you so much to all who came :) we were overwhelmed by your generosity :) and all your outfits were amazing! hope you all had a cushty night too, same again next year?!
Excellent night. Thanks to Jay and Emma for the venue and goulish buffet. Everyone made a fantastic effort and even Dennis got out of his customery polo shirt. Lets do it again Chums.
Aye an excellent night indeed. We all scrubbed up very well I thought.
Well done to Jay, Emma and Vincent- perfect hosts.
Chum Chum Chum...
Couldn,t agree more, an absolute crackin' night. Just when we all thought we were past doing fancy-dress!!! There were some really cool costumes, a lot of dodgy dental work & some really wierd eyes! Got my photos edited so I'll get them to the Prez this week. A big thanx to Jay & Emma for all the effort they put into the night & dragging us old farts out of our 'comfort zone', & little Vincent, Aaaahh!
P.S. The Love/Knob game. Can't believe that no one has mentioned AC/DC - Knob Hungry Man!
Thanks to Emma and Jay for an excellent night. Lovely buffet and great fun. Well done to everyone who dressed up some great outfits. Yet another sooooper chummy night :-)
What a great night we had, even if it was interupted by a 60th birthday in the middle! Thanks to Jay & Em for the invite & the house looked amazing. Loved the costumes & look forward to next year when we can dress up too!
A belated thank you To Jay & Emma for their great hospitality on Saturday night. A great evening had by all as the gallery photos show. Keep on Chumming!!!
That's the last of the Halloween pics uploaded.
Indeed, it was a smashing event.
Aye, the pics look great. A fitting memorial for the spooky house warming.
Lets FOCUS on The Brickyard Tues night for a blast from the past, Nutty(Gizmo)Noah will be back from the seven seas with his tails of mermaids and sea monsters in the next day or so,YAAAY!!!! p.s crackin pics chums.
Hope to see some great pics from your night out....plenty of Hocus Pocus!
Soooooooooooo, how was it? Great night had by you night owls as I was tucked up with ITT drinking cocoa whilst he warmed his slippers by the fire?
WARNING:Make sure your slippers do not have a label expressing concerns about flammable materials before warming them by the fire.
On a lighter note, i was wondering if any chums are interested in the gig on the opening night of Sound on the 3rd December featuring Magnum, It Bites & Falling Red. For £10 [before 21st November then it's £15 or £17.50 on the door] you get free entry into Club Rock later. Sounds like good value of anybody's money. Tickets are available in Club Rock or google sound carlisle for further details. Keep On Chumming!!!
Hi ITT. Should be a good night but I'm working that night :( Hi NNN. Tuesday was indeed an excellent night, even though I've just proved once & for all that I haven't got a single "Proggy" bone in my body!!! Hope to catch you two later. Hello to Gizmo also, if you are back in town chum.
Sorry chum no can do,Magnum's on fri night at HARD ROCK HELL what a bugger!
In our inebriated state on Saturday (we'd been out all day, I'm sure those that said hi could tell!)we didn't get tickets for Magnum.....ITT changed his mind, he may well change it again! Gizmo was at the Blues fest with his brother, he popped into the Napper to say hi during the break on Sat.
ITT is working next weekend, so if we don't see Maka & Nicky before Hard Rock Hell............keep chumming & have fun!
I could tell you had been out for a while because Ian kept 'goosing' me at the bar.
Not quite sure why he found that so funny :o) Bet it was more fun than me listing all my Urban Decay eyeliners to Emma last Friday. Over, and over and over again.
Sorry about the goosing, Prez. If it's any consolation, you could be henpecked like me!!!
Oooooh, he's so brave when he's sat at home on the couch & I'm in work.....wait til I get home you'll know what hen pecking is my lad :o)
Gooses? Hens? Ian you had better DUCK:)
Comin' up for the 100th chumment folks....get thinking of a good one, or at least a better one than this:))
99 (red baloons).......... who will be 100th???
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.100 Kings horses and 100 kings men had scrambled egg's for breakfast again.
100% PURE METAL.YAAAAAY!! short & sweet.
102nd comment....ooooh that one has the mystical number two in it:)
back in blighty once more.
Won't see much of you as too busy playing doctor, fireman and lifeboatman
C'est la vie
should be out and about Wed - all being well
Welome home Giz hope to catch up with you on Wed xXXx
Thanks for putting pics up Prez, was going to send them to Shaggy til ITT told me his phone pre dates a brick!
WOW, cheers NNNic. Imagine my surprise to log onto the site and see myself with Spike & Paul from the Quireboys!!! Excellent night chums. Hope Maka & Nicky get some ace shots at HRH this weekend.I will see those chums out at Wednesday Club after the rally. P.S. ITT was not lying about the age of my phone, it's powered by a Waterwheel!
P.P.S. Glad to see that we all took the moral high ground & avoided any obvious jokes about the Prez's mystic "Number 2's"!!!!! The mind boggles!
You total greebos you have set the bar high for HRH I will try to grab a pic with Spike when he least expects it xXXx
Have fun Nicky & Maka, hope to see some cool pics when you return! Keep rockin'!
Hey Shaggy....I had to let you see the photo's some how! Weren't they the nicest rock stars ever?!
Have a rockin' time at HRH, Maka & Nicky. Look forward to seeing pics of Maka stealth chumming geordie warbler Ginger Wildheart or giving Finnish glam god Michael Monroe a wedgie!!!(If that does'nt make his eyeliner run, nothing will) As for your pre/post-gig, chalet shenanigans, post them to the XXX rated website firstname.lastname@example.org!!!
Keep On Chumming!
Yep NNN, the Quireboys were very cool to have a foaming quencher & a crack with after the gig. I'm sure Maka & Nicky will have a totally Rockin' weekendin Wales.
Hello all glad to see you all chumming along i will have to catch up sometime.
Was looking at your vintage pic's if you want to know the three with Crowns n flags in Carlisle are the Queen Mothers Jubilee 1958.
Ok thats my input for today.
Got a text from Nicky. She has risen to the challenge & has had her photo taken with Spike from the Quireboys. Excellent work chums. I think they'll be back with a fine set of pics & no prizes for guessing who'll get the photos of week :)
Spike must be after a 'chumship'! Can't wait to see the makas pics.
I think you've just hit the nail on the head. Spike could be the 1st 'honourary celebrity chum', poor bloke, ha ha!
I reckon he meets the requirements!!
Surely the first 'honourary celebrity chum(s)', should be the Hairy Bikers?
Jay has the photographic evience to prove it:)
Now they are more like MY kinda Chums.
By the way, welcome home to the Maka's. Looking forward to hearing the stories, band reviews and seeing the pics.
Chum, chum, chum.
Back from HRH V phew!!! what a cool weekend, Thanks for your well wishes everyone Maka and I have differing opinions about who was the best band as our music tastes can be very different, we managed 22. I have put a few pics up on Makas page to give you a taste of the events and a little game of spot the rock star that I managed to accost (poor things). Hope the boys enjoy Machine napper tonight and they can join the crowd of the recently deaf :-) see you all soon so I can bore the socks off you with band crack xXXx
Glad you had fun! Apart from Spike I'm unsure of the band members,I'm sure you will put us all out of are mysery after a few guesses!
Er, my grammar isn't that bad, I meant 'our' mysery, deary deary me!
Hi everyone. Just back from Glasgow where Kimmers has just finished filming for the weakest link. A great day apart from the snow. All were allowed to say is she got through the first round. For more details stay tuned in the new year. Chum Chum.....etc
NNN won't be posting in the near future as she's going on a spelling course. She is the weakest link, goodbye!
Keep on chumming!!!
Sorry if ITT's somment took a while to arrive, it was marked as SPAM. While I was sorting it out I found another genuine SPAM message and have reproduced it here for discussion...
The bible teaches that women brought sin and death into the world, that she precipitated the fall of the race, that she was arraigned before the judgment seat of Heaven, tried, condemned and sentenced. Marriage for her was to be a condition of bondage, maternity a period suffering and anguish, and in silence and subjection, she was to play the role of a dependent on man's bounty for all her material wants, and for all the information she might desire... Here is the Bible position of woman briefly summed up.
As per the above teaching from the Bible - Never realised 'He' was an MCP!!!
Wots an MCP?
'Mental Chavvie Paedo!' Or maybe just Male Chauvenist Pig. Think I've spent too much time in Jovi's company!!! I'll say ten Hail Mary's before I head back to the pub. Machine Napper were ace thanks. Cracking couple of days as those chums who saw the wreckage that was me & Jovi when we landed back in Carlisle will testify. Catch up with those chums out later to swap gig stories with the Makars. Chum Chum Chum!
Some great pics fom HRH V, Maka & Nicky. No idea who the rock stars are apart from Spike, although the guy with the beard looks like he could be from Michael Monroe's band (please enlighten us).
Let us know the date when The Weakest Link will be aired when you find out Neil & Kimmers. Look forward to seeing a Chumina taking on the feisty Anne Robinson! Let the Battle of the Redheads commence.
Keep On Chumming!!!
When I read my posts back I thought I had been sabotaged! Even I know how to spell misery on a good day, it must be cracker land sending me just that, crackers! Spelling lessons will be wasted on me, they tried for years at Trinity....as for your spam Prez, here is my life....'Marriage for her was to be a condition of bondage (ooh er misses), she was to play the role of a dependent on man's bounty for all her spelling needs'
The Chumments page is buzzing with comments again after a quiet period. The chain is getting long again. I may start a new one in the new year.
I think we should also have a Xmas calendar so we can lay out planned drinking days in advance.
Don't forget it's a double Chum/Chumina birthday event this Sat, those that can make it.
Love the idea of the Xmas Quaffing Calender, just goes to show that we can actually organise a 'p*ss-up in a brewery'. Next gig is Jon Amor in Club Rock on Friday. Thrash Metal to the Blues in one week, not bad going! Me & Den will be at a works do on Saturday but will catch up with the birthday Chums at Club Rock or even a cheeky last pint in the Napper. See if Kimmers lets a few secrets out of the bag when she has some lubrication on board :)
He he he NNN, I just re-read your parphrasing of the SPAM. Nice one.
Ahem... Don't think using the words "Kimmers" and "lubrication" in the same sentence is entirely p.c. do you old chum?
And when did this chum do P.C.???? Sorry that I couldn't spend the whole night with the crowd but as always had a corker when I met up with you all. Think the girls from our works do enjoyed the crack & the dancing too. Once again, Happy Birthday to Kimmers & Jovi, YEYYYY!
I would like to say a HUGE thank you to you all for your Birthday wishes and for my card & pressie. It's lovely- Nicky, excellent choice!!! What a good night- sorry we didn't make it as far as the Rock Club. See you all soon. Your ginger friend! xxx
Belated birthday wishes to the birthday chums, sorry we didn't make it, ITTs shifts are unkind to our social life. Looks like a great night, looking forward to the xmas calender!
An ultra-belated happy birthday to Jovi & Kimmers from me too. It looked like great fun.
How funny would the festive cALEndar be if it was going to be illustrated by a naked Chum/Chumina in a stylishly shot pose with something discreetly covering their nether regions like those charity cALEndar.
Keep On Chumming!!!
A night to remember indeed...or not, depending upon how much ale you consumed:)
Replying to ITT. I would point out we already have the October picture sorted - 'Man At His Toilet' as it is known, which can still be found on the Previous Pics of The Week Page (Notting-chum 09th - 12th October 2010).
im makas hrh drinking pal and nicky was known as the weekend band tramp,apart from spike i had to tell her who all the celebs were so dont let her kid you
Hi, Mike. I don't believe for one minute what your saying about our Nicky other than she did'nt know who the celebs of HRH V were. Can you please enlighten us to who the stars are on the HRH V photos?
Keep On Chumming!!!
Hi Mike, nice to hear from you. It's nice having a 'man on the inside' telling us all Nicky's secrets.
I think there is a pic of you (and partner/wife?) in one of the pics Nicky has sent me. I'll place it on the site, seeing as how you are the Maka's HRH Chum:)
Hi Mike, welcome to the Chum site. That'll put the cat amongst the pigeons, haha! Hope you had as good a time at HRH as the Makars did :)
P.S. Prepare for Nicky's wrath!!!
the band tramp dont scare me and you must ask maka about sitting down without a chair.the pics are spike,the singer of bonafide(who were excellent by the way)the singer of praying mantis,the drummer of praying mantis,tyla from dogs damour and obviously rodney matthews at the end
Flippin' heck! I would never have got Tyla from Dogs D'Amour! He's changed beyond recognition in the 20 years since i last saw him. I definitely would'nt have got the others either.
Hi Mike, I'm ITT's Mrs. It has to be noted he (ITT) has not aged in the last 20 years & forgets that for some of us, it is hard to look svelt & youthful 20 years on! Tyla has suffered from enjoying life it seems, another reason for him to be our second celebrity Chum - Spike being the first!
NNN you have been on the site and not updated the cALEnder. :(
Put in when you two are out and about over Crimbo etc, so we can meet up.
Yes Mike you are indeed DEAD! You git :P and YOU tramped the lead singer of Therapy? poor guy, I must concede though Mike is indeed excellent at spotting band folks and not just the lead singers either. It was a great weekend roll on next year :-)
OK I'll let you off (you too Nicky) I had forgotten to set permissions for others to be able to amend the cALEnder, so you couldn't have changed it....which i'm sure you DID try?:)
Fantastic cALEndar, Prez. I had better let NNN fill our days in on the cALEndar as i might look like i'm taking a step on the rocky road to Rambodom! (Sorry, Rambo!) It seems like yonks since we caught up with you all so looking forward to it.
Good to see Nicky finally reply to the libellous accusations from 'Mystery' Mike. Credit where it's due, he certainly knows his Demon from his Tygers Of Pang Tang!
Keep On Chumming!!!
Yes the cALEndar seems stable. The last one kept going, as those of a technical bias, say 'a bit bloody silly'
I've filled out Wed chum club 21st & think I made a mess of it, don't wanna mess it up for you all! So, we will be out 21st, 23rd, 26th, 28th. Already pre arranged new year, we may also see you xmas eve, but not late on as I need to be around a 5 & 7 year old on xmas day ouch......
I think I,ve got most of the seasonal cALEnder filled in?!? Won't see you chums on Friday as Den & me have yet another 'works do' so should see those out on Sunday. Finally, Mike, I got Tyla! Come join us over Xmas. We'll hold Nicky back, hehe.
Good work on the cALEndar folks, but mebby each choose a colour to write stuff, it makes it easier to read:)
It seems to be being used. Nicky suggested it could be used for highlighting bands and gigs etc which is a really good idea.
Loving the cALEnder! Think I've filled it out correctly! See you all soon.....ITT on works do tonight, might venture into Napper on my own if work doesn't finish me off!
Doh, its woodies on a Friday, maybe not that brave on my own on BEF!! Scrub the above post! Hmmm, I seem to be thinking out aloud on here alot these days... verbal runny poo - I can't even attempt that word after my last mysery!
Just a suggestion but as it is Black eyed Friday Woodies / Bothergate will be possible nightmare
Straight to Napper and bag some seats at the "quieter" end of town ??????
Note NNN's comment above
NNN - If you still want to turn out will be happy to meet and greet and escort you ??
Aaaah - Xmaaaas
Possible hangover at 30,000 ft
This is what happens when you work for inconsiderate Arab employers who don't give a toss
Even explained the "Bah Humbug" approach to Xmas and asked to fly early to no avail!!!!
Gizmo- I've dun you a cd of the band we discussed last week for NNN to pass on to you. It's an edited version of the first two albums cos they both would'nt fit on one disc (i don't think you'll be too bothered about a track featuring Ginger Baker describing how to make a cup of tea!). If you like them i'll do you more for when you get back. I might see you tonight on my travels.
If not, bon voyage, Chum!
Keep On Chumming!!!
hi all id just like to say ta for being added onto the chums gallery but i must ask why my name comes up as steve when you hold the cursor on said pic.if i dont see any of you before hope you all have a good christmas
ITT - cheers for the CDs
have them loaded onto the ipod already
might catch you before i go
Ooops sorry Mike, that's my fault. I'll sort it cheers....Steve:)
Hi everyone just thought I’d post this note to say I am fine and the bleeding has stopped I think although I have not taken the bandage (plaster) off yet as you may have heard or not I was glassed while in the Kings head last night I say I but Cheryl was close by but did not seemed to be injured like me, the blood that ran out of the wound and down onto my jeans will come out I am told but I will be left with a scar and may have a sling for it for a week or too so if you see me at the bar holding my wound I will gladly accept a(few) beer of you and tell you all about how I was glassed that night
It was a shocking thing to behold. I saw the glass coming at you from behind and It all happened so fast I couldn't have helped. I was amazed at all the blood, and the size of the wound.
Perhaps the greatest scar you will have will be a psychological one...I hear beer helps PTSD.
Get well soon.
Counselling would cost so much and may not work but well beer will always help
Ewan - Me & NNN are hoping you are ok. What goes through people's minds to commit such an act. There will be a cold one on the bar for you next time we see you.
Get well soon, Chum.
Bloody hell! What have I missed? Hope you're OK Ewan, was waiting for the punchline on the first message. I will definatly catch up with you over the Xmas period & you can show off your war wounds. Get well soon chum.
Its all gone red just like my arm on friday night as the blood spurted out
bit of a bizarre thing to ask but would any of you guys be interested in buying a french bulldog pup as i have a few surplus to requirment
About 9 of them we hear:)
My cats would freak, so would the wife i think.
I'll ask around...is it for life or just Xmas?:)
hi prez a frenchie is more a way of life as opposed to life,they fart and snore and want to live on your knee but they do have cuteness in abundence and are very intelligent,they can spot band members from afar unlike mrs makar so make worthy partners for quite a while
I wish all these once a year drinkers would go home & leave our pub alone, bah, humbug, its just no fun! Saturday was mobbed with tramps & thugs......er, except ITT's colleagues off C shift!
