Re: Petition

When Yvette Cooper's staff checked the first 100 names on the position to deselect her from her constituency, they found only 3 valid voters with a Wakefield address.

I'd get all those details verifed before I broadcast the count.

Re: Sad coincidence?

We've been in Seafare almost every time we visit Tobers. A lovely old shop and as a Mistress Mariner it is my second favourite shop after the chocolate shop.

Re: Sad coincidence?

At 3rd year at my school I struggled with English, French, German and Latin. German was the most technically difficult as it has male, female and neutral verbs

Re: XC Weather and the coming storm . . .

I've just had a Highland & Islands Weather Facebook page pop up on my stream. They are pretty accurate and Scottish-based, with lots of lovely graphs. I should also point out that they have issued an early advisory for a spell of severe gales early next week - with the associated low pressure d...

Re: XC Weather and the coming storm . . .

Just compared BBC Weather and Metcheck for my postcode just for tonight. There is a 4 degree difference - meaning it may freeze tonight (BBC) or be a bit cool (Metcheck).

Re: XC Weather and the coming storm . . .

Metcheck has started to get pretty inaccurate as well - They keep predicting snow (it's only snowed once this winter) and why they think they are going to be accurate six months hence is beyond me.

I need to have a word with my fellow members of the Guild of Seamstresses, Galley Slaves Chapter as to if any breaches of 'The Code' have been breached.

Re: Will there be a wake?

My parents never went online and their visitors book from Seminole is a wonder to behold, they actually approached folk in harbours and on pontoons and spoke to them, you don't have to recognise a boat name from a forum to go make friends. They read YM and PBO so got info from there. Aye - 'tis tru...

Lovely pictures - but I hope the small hut at the end of the pier isn't what I think it is.

Re: Shetland Sailing Mysteries by Marsali Taylor.

It's just the right amount of technical boaty talk but if you are a non-boaty you can still understand what is happening. I like the background feeling of the real problems facing Shetland as they are bang up to date with credit crunch and oil reserves. Aquaplane* has issues with the Shetland tidal...

Re: Claymore has grown a pair ... and a bit

Hmmm, yes the trees may be the giveaway there. I had a discussion with my husband* about the set up of the rigging and mast height -so ten years on this Forum have not been a total loss.
