Re: English Premier League 2020/21

I didn't think Mike Dean was allowed to referee an Everton or Liverpool game as he comes from "The Wirral", a tad too close to home?

Re: English Premier League 2020/21

One of my early memories of Leeds United in the First Division was when they visited Goodison Park. Norman Bites yer leg Hunter was playing as was Billy bremner. Willie Bell was at left back and his tackle on Derek(aka Shirley) Temple was so high he managed to crack a couple of our winger's ribs and...

Re: Consolidated Jokes

Yesterday my daughter e-mailed me, again, asking why I didn't do something useful with my time. "Like sitting around the pool, drinking wine isn't a good thing?" I asked. (Talking about my “doing something useful” seems to be her favourite topic of conversation.) She is "only thinking of me," she sa...

Re: Proper Ritz cheesy biscuits

I agree on the "latest?" "Ritz" offering, the alternatives were a cheesy biscuit made by "Jack and Jill" which have been around for yonks. In fact a certain bar owner of Welsh extraction and who ran the "Red Dragon" in "Farang Alley" lived on J & J's as he wasn't too keen on Thai food. His wife woul...

Sad News indeed, my wife, who spends much of her time at Wat Ban Thad and in fact only moved from there to the Temple at Sawang Daeng Din only last week. She will be visiting Wat Ban Thad today to pay her respects. She spends time at both Temples helping in the kitchens preparing meals for the monks...
