Talking about Ashton / Re: Internet Cafes in Tameside
« on: May 19, 2009, 10:04 PM »
Does anybody know where you can surf the web and get a decent flat white, preferably Droylsden, Audenshaw or West End ??


Hello Planet Ashton this is New Zealand, we are talking coffee here ...........  ;D

A flat white is a coffee beverage prepared by pouring the creamy steamed milk from the bottom of the jug over a single shot (30ml) of espresso.

The drink is typically served in a small 150-160ml ceramic tulip cup. The stretched and texturised milk is prepared by entraining air into the milk and folding the top layer into the lower layers. To achieve the "flat", non-frothy texture the steamed milk is poured from the bottom of the jug, holding back the lighter froth on the top in order to access milk with smaller bubbles, making the drink smooth and velvety in texture.

A Flat White differs from a Latte in that it is served in a smaller ceramic cup[1], whereas a traditional latte is served in a glass with the steamed milk poured over the espresso shot. A Latte can also be served in a bowl or a larger cup requiring more milk, obscuring the complex flavours of the coffee.

But you've all got me thinking now, do you have segregated accomodation these days like flat brown, flat chinese, flat asian etc  ;)

[soapbox]

Cameron doesn't want an election, he's full of $#1t, rather obvious and pathetic really. MP's haven't yet realised that the game is up, after the hammering they will receive at the elections on the 4th I can see the honest MP's realising the real situation and kicking out the dishonest ones.

If the Liberals kick out their dodgy MP's (Flipping homes etc) they can instantly claim to be the only party to have sorted themselves out and to have clean hands as well as promise to make sure that no party has the absolute power that the Conservatives and Labour have misused.

The Lib - Dems could become a serious player if they play their cards right.

Just an idea.....

If I may coin the phrase that has been floating around a bit recently "In a democracy you get the politicians you deserve".

I reckon a General Election should be called, only then will voters get their chance to really show how angry they are. If you then re-elect the troughers then you truly deserve them.

On a side note I really don't believe Gordon or the Speaker have what it takes to reinstall the integrity of the House of Commons. Until both are gone there will be no end.

To quote Martin Niemoller:

First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out--
    because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out--
    because I was not a socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out--
    because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
    because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me--
    and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Scares the beejayzus outta me does that :-\

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.
