  1. Barkers often lay their eggs adjacent to those nettles too.
  2. Watch the weather with this one, it's our regular stamping ground, got pleasantly stuck at Lemonroyd last autumn for 2 nights. Discovered the joys of St Aidan's RSPB reserve adjacent. Also been caught by high levels near Brighouse.
  3. Grandma Pollards in Walsden, on the Rochdale Canal, does Fish and Chips in Lard.
  4. Remember Mr Axiom! Did anyone ever buy one?
  5. No, not if they are Ex windup merchants, for, as you say, they have stopped doing it. If it looks, waddles and quacks like a duck it's a 🦆. It's Mr Tank, busted. I won't be using him.
  6. Todmorden and Littleborough on the Rochdale.
  7. Self righteous wotsits are to be found sitting on many a lock beam, apparently. I'm missing something, was the volocky right to sit on the lock beam? Ignoring his training! Anyone acting outside the guidelines/whims of the mods on here gets short shrift, yet no lives are at risk.
  8. Met one once. The old dear just looked like a dried grape.
  9. Quicker, more effective and easier than coming on here and dealing with the witterers, naysayers and grumbling old gusts of smelly wind.
  10. All this wittering on! Volockies are trained to advise, not order and or obstruct. The boater is in charge. So maybe carry a copy or two of that document quoted by Alan (I think). Calmly state your case with the uppity volocky, back it up with the statement from their health and safety chief. Then if they carry on, report them. Simple.
  11. Are you looking for 2 then?
  12. Ooh a CART knocker. Careful, you will be pilloried with rotten fruit and bywash clearings.

    TV licence

    So, re licence, total liveaboards and their request for a land address, put a letter to them offering to pay, stating the paradox they have to sort out, it is of their making after all. Then leave it with them, you have offered to pay, they have refused to accept, the judge would fall off his chair laughing.
  14. Just create a thread on the definition of Main Navigable Channel and whether a fake licence or genuine pleasure boat certificate is needed outside it. You might also mention the Vat implications. That will fetch them out.
