Is that your dog in the picture Kiwi? Looks to be a great little character!!
Yep, that's Jess our teenage Tenterfield Terrier  ;), born on the Sunshine Coast of Oz and now resident in NZ, she was blind as a bat a year ago but we got her cataracts fixed and now she's able to see movement at around 30ft and can see stationary objects 10 feet away, not perfect but better than needing a seeing eye person  :)

Apparently, one MP thought he didn't have to declare anything to the Inland Revenue because he lived on the coast.
I'm going to pinch that one  :D

Please don't find things that don't work properly on this forum! I had enough of things going wrong with the old one. If things start going wrong here, I think I will just give it all up as a bad job!

Don't worry yourself Martin, it was just a teething problem, you're doing a great job mate !  ;)

PS With regard to your IM and Dukinfield, I'll be in Ashton this time next month for a couple of weeks, boy am I looking forwards to 30 hours in cattle class to get there  :D

Hi Martin, tried sending you a IM but it's nowhere to be seen in the Outbox so will use this instead.

Have noticed that if you start a thread you are also able to remove or lock that particular thread. Have only seen this privilege  available to moderators or admins on other forums so have to ask if this is intentional or not  ??.

If the government are serious about making savings they could start with the EU!

Good point !, and once they are through with the EU they can move onto the UN.

Am I the only one enjoying the delicious irony of Govt data being leaked (yet again) whilst the same Govt are claiming that the ID database will be extremely secure.

I just can't stop laughing  ;D

Phil Woolas says, yes, they were on the same receipt but they weren't the items that he was claiming for.

I note he has not started legal proceedings against the Telegraph as he promised on Saturday.

Wonder why Cameron didn't savage Brown when this started to emerge. No party is going to come out of this looking good.

Add one more vote for Corry St, we're only about 2 years behind on Kiwi TV, Mrs Kiwi used to try and watch it years ago but gave up because couldn't understand some of the accents, however since being shacked up with moi for 20 odd years she reckons she's developed an ear for the dialects, well either that or there's too many folk from south of Stockport on the show  :)

A Kenyan fan of English football club Arsenal has hanged himself after his team's defeat by Manchester United.

The north London club was beaten 3-1 in the European Champions League semi-final second leg on Tuesday evening.

Suleiman Omondi, 29, who was watching in a bar in the capital, Nairobi, was incensed by the club's poor showing.

He left at half-time after arguing with a Manchester United fan and was found hanging from a rope in his house, still dressed in an Arsenal shirt.

The BBC's Josphat Makori in Nairobi says the unprecedented incident has shocked football fans in Kenya.

According to his friends, Mr Omondi was in good spirits at the beginning of the match and even when Arsenal conceded the first goal, he did not seem to be affected.

But things changed when the team conceded a second goal 11 minutes into the game.

A woman, who sat next to him in the bar, said Mr Omondi was so disappointed by Arsenal's poor performance that he broke down during half-time.

Another eyewitness told journalists that it was at this point that a Manchester United fan started taunting him.

"Suleiman got hold of him angrily by the neck and started pressing him so hard," he said.

"We quickly intervened and asked him to stop. Suleiman then stopped but he was so angry that he left in a rage."

His body was found on Wednesday morning.

Police officer David Bunei told the BBC the incident was being investigated.

It must have been frustrating but there's no need to get so hung up about it.  ::)
