The main thought I had was Travel Firms will say anything to grab a headline, they will be saying next that Liverpool's the Capital of Culture!!!!

Sorry Dan, The Red's, and I love them dearly, lived in the area for 25 years now, and supported them before I came to this area, don't really qualify for making a City cultrally great.
I've really enjoyed my time here..... but there are major problems.
Alan quite rightly put up something that was positive about his city...... if his posting had a headline...the 'ten most crime ridden cities', nobody would bat an eyelid....unless of course if you come from Scotland and that would be battered eye lids. Has any Nation on this earth ever fed it's population on offal in the pretence of it being normal food, what do they do with normal cuts of meat up there......
Just munching on an Angus stake....Got to be something with AC/DC

Not this Nation, that's for sure!

Mmmmm, offal in the pretence of it being normal food, slaver...

If it's overcooked, then it's back to black :-)

...however, you should undercook it, if you want blood.

Swansea made it this time - http://www.thedailymash.co.uk/news/society/mogadishu-top-city-for-tosspot-travel-writers-200810161328/ (http://www.thedailymash.co.uk/news/society/mogadishu-top-city-for-tosspot-travel-writers-200810161328/)

Hmmm....not enough detail, Allan - Terry William's club doesn't even get a mention. For the uninitiated, see http://www.swanseablues.co.uk/TaweDeltaBlues/tdbluesinfo.htm (http://www.swanseablues.co.uk/TaweDeltaBlues/tdbluesinfo.htm) and that'll be ?5, Terry....

Behind the times Nick, Clive now runs this not Terry...  :o

Cripes, yes I am. That would explain why I haven't received my ?5 from him.

Ummm....in that case, have you received your ?5 from Clint?

I expect that you'd be hard pushed to squeeze that fiver out of Clint - he's a promoter now!!!!

(Feenstra: sorry Pete, cheap musicians' gag but it was there for the taking!!!!)

Now there's a funny thing.....

I might have misunderstood this, but I'm a cheap musician who many say should be gagged - and I'm there for the taking. So in the unlikely event of me being promoted by Clint, would ?4 be better?

...and I always, always listen out for his line "....I'll be just as steeeewpid....."

Classic Clint, plus I've found the italic button.

Sorry, 'ITAL'-ic button.

Does this make sense?
