Ok...

so...

is this a real beer...? :)


I do believe it is and brewed by the Wychwood brewery who make one of my favourite beers Hobgoblin a few of which will be enjoyed later this evening.



I haven't tried said beer as it is seasonal and hard to find.

"The Dog's Bollocks

Seasonals - November

Standing out from the crowd, an old favourite returns that always lives up to its name.

Pale golden, well rounded flavours warm the palate & come together with a hint of nuts, resulting in a robust fulsome aroma that hangs low 'til the last.

A great excuse to go & see a man about a dog."

We were talking a while back about Big Boy #4014 being moved to Wyoming for restoration. Some good pics with this story.

Yes, that is a good story. Writer actually got it right.

Here's the detailed schedule for the trip to Cheyenne.

There is also a GPS tracking map

SHUDDER !!! The only bugs I like are the VW ones :-)

Er you don't I hope "Kill" bugs??



I can't even kill a mosquito myself...

No I do not knowingly kill any bugs. Any that get inside and wish to leave I help by opening windows or doors.

The only bug I have respect for is the common wasp, got badly stung as a child, so I give them a wide berth, but will definitely "assist" them in leaving.

There is just something sinister about them

I did buy retail. But that does suck you cant reuse an OEM when a computer goes up in smoke.


Well I have a mix of OEM and retail on my 7 machines, if one dies, MB,or HDD I just reload the OS or swap HDD to new MB and have never had a problem yet, this is with WIN7 and Vista. I have occasionally had to "re-register on line" when I change the MB, but at least 3 of them don't have the original MB.

I did try that site too..It also tried to load a malware. Finally gave up on it and went to the WinRAR. At this point, I'd done with 7z expanders.
Then the problem lies on your computer. The 7-zip site redirects to sourceforge.net for download and there never existed any malware from that site!

Agreed I just tried it no malware.

Women should also have to register for the draft or face the full penalty of the law

Sorry I didn't realise the USA still had conscription, and how you managed to turn a simple thread about the use of guns into a thread about women having to sigh up for conscription your country doesn't have I have no idea.

The original premis of this thread was comparing cars and knives to guns.

You asked me to state a yes or no, when I do you just play the childish games and say "oh well what about the farmers", er what about them, if you want to ask an adult question ask, "Who do you think should allowed guns?" or perhaps "Do you think there is ever a reason to have licenced firearms?. And allow me to answer, but you don't want a discussion you just want this childish "My arguments better than yours" Without ever hearing my arguments.

Pathetic. no one hear really want to listen, no one here is prepared to think, obviously to you having guns freely available is natural, I agree it is completely logical for the USA and I believe in freedom. Just remember the overriding reason you all wish to hang onto your guns is to bring down a corrupt government, I wish you luck there, it will of course be a blood bath and from what I see it will be soon.

So back to my question; is there ANY useful reason for a civilian to have a gun? A yes or no will suffice without the red herring editorializing.

No

Guns were designed with one purpose in mind - to kill, animals and humans, sport came afterwards.

Newer and later guns can kill people much more accurately.

No other reason for the existence of guns, they kill, and maim that is what they are designed to do.

Some of you may know that Steve (SciManStev) on these boards, keeps snakes.

When I was visiting NY in 2012 visited him

For those of a nervous disposition or who don't like snakes I would skip this next pic



I actually found out that day that I don't mind shakes, of course my one was a bit smaller.




Last year when I visited we went up the Mount Cannon tramway where at the top you can by beer from "The Highest Tap in New Hampshire"

While there I was experimenting with my new camera to try taking a pic with us both in, of course nothing happend for a while then when the shutter fired we were both looking a bit puzzled!!

While I wait to get the OK for a couple of photos I thought I would post this.

There is a story connected to the previous photos.

Whilst on his 2011 trip to the US Chris developed a liking for a certain brand of crisps "chips" to the American contingent, that you cannot get over here.

So last year knowing I was going to visit Steve, Uli contacted him and me and asked if Steve would purchase some and I would bring them back for Chris!!

All great however have you tried getting 20 large packets of crisps into your luggage, there were a few casualties, bags broke, which I of course eat.

This is Chris when we met up at a pub it Croydon for me hand over the goods!!

I see no reason to continue trying to have dialogue with people that are simply not interested in any sensible or meaningful discussion. There are posters here who are so entrenched in their attitude that they will never consider an opposing view. There are those that simply use the Seti boards as a free soapbox for their own radical religious and other dogma, and others that have nothing to say at all, but just deliberately cause mischief and bait others for their own childish amusement.

Oh I thought that was what is was there for to keep the radicals and nutters out of the Cafe. :-)

I gave up with Politics last year.

You'll feel less stressed!!
