  1. I thought the quote was preach not teach, it's a dig at shaman not intellectuals........
  2. Won't the Lichfield and Hatherton canals be independent once they are opened?
  3. Your being kind. I think most are ignorant of the history of the canals even as resently as the 1980s. Let alone the IWA and the state they were in in the 60s and 70's. I heard a podcast by the "Angry Boater" with another London liveaboard complaining about some old fogey from the IWA who stood up in a meeting and tried to put the condition of the London canals into some kind of context. They clearly had no idea about the work that had been done by volunteers only thirty or forty years ago. I think many of them believe the canals were all in perfect condition up until about ten years ago.
  4. Makes me smile when people, especially on Facebook, complain about CRT and claim BW were wonderful. When you point out they used to set fire to lock gates, allegedly, to prevent the movement of boats and made dredging illegal it makes CRT seem quite nice.
  5. I had penicillin injections, which are a bit lumpy, in my thigh and glute when I was in hospital after an accident. I remember the nurse saying that a patient had refused and asked to have it in the arm and spent the rest of the day in agony.
  6. When I lived in the states I visited Mormon country in Pennsylvania. I went to Intercourse and French Lick but didn't get to Climax............ bizarre.
  7. Saw this one on the Thames this year, made me smile.
  8. Yes, thanks, I saw that a couple of weeks ago.
  9. They asked her when they could come through that week, as Tina usually wants a minimum of 24 hrs notice but she said no.
  10. I was talking to someone yesterday in Bill Fen who said she refused to let them through. Told them to go back to their mooring. That's why I asked if anyone had been through.
  11. Has anyone been through Standground lock since the EA announced the waterways were open? I've heard Tina is reluctant to let boats through.
