What made you UNHAPPY today!

I'd make a stink about it in Public. Totally shocking

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

I'm amazed how "charging to receive" ever came to be and how one could enforce that. Here it's you can receive anything, anywhere for free over your own antenna, but transmitting is licensed (and that is easily traceable). Of course you pay cable companies to use their system, but it's not licensed by the end user.

Phil - been through similar over the past couple of years. £850 is cheap, my Mum was being stung for £1300 a week, and the home did bugger all apart from feed her pills to keep her co-operative. Before she went into the home, she was very mobile. 3 months after going in could hardly walk, a year after I didn't recognise her.

TV licence. Her new free one arrived at my house (she moved to live next door to me after my Dad died). I rang them up to say she was no longer there, and got the same story that she would need a licence for her room, but that the free licence could be transferred - which I assume my sister did as the Care Home was close to her.

Just remove the aerial? Can't receive, no licence payable?

No surprise, but sad nonetheless.  The B747 was an enormous part of my life.  It was always my plan to get on the farewell flight; doubt that'll happen!

I've been on several long haul flights, never on a Jumbo though.

I think a few in other airlines will operate passenger for a while, but soon the only 747s we see will be cargo.  I don't think we'll be seeing A380s for much longer, either.

Flew on the 747 from Oahu to Nadi (Fiji).  Got to go talk with the pilots in the cockpit.  That was 21 years ago next week.  I know this because it's my anniversary and because you can't go talk to pilots anymore for obvious reasons.

The thing I regret the most is not flying on Concorde.  I had a chance when I was 21, but didn't have the $900 they were asking to fly half way to Hawaii and back to San Diego, CA.  Hopefully, Boom will bring the return of supersonic flight.  https://boomsupersonic.com/overture

This is sad news. I spent a lot of time on Jumbos top and bottom decks included. Always felt a little special to me being on that plane. This linked to a pigeon having just pooed on my face means this is a day of 'things that make me unhappy' so far!

I loved the 747. We flew on them regularly backwards and forwards to KL, using the old mans Airmiles up to live between Malaysia and the UK. Used to love it as it was often only half full and a couple of times even less so we could sleep across 3-4 chairs......plus I got booze which I didn't get on the Air Malaysia flights!

Never had a problem on TUI flights in 20 years!  Apart from the odd tosser passenger who got pissed at the airport in the UK and ignored his kids for the whole flight

Our preferred cruise company went in to liquidation today. Good company just bought 2 new ships, pushed out of business by coronavirus. 
More upset about the loss of a good company than deposit for a rescheduled cruise  that we were originally supposed to be on this week (Albeit should be able to reclaim from CC).

Blessed with the competence to be a slave to the incapable.

Perhaps they hears someone say stair string and thought their wires would help? :lol:

Oh my [email protected]@@@@G god.  You have to be kidding with this right? I'd be straight on to the federation, trading standards and health and safety and have the bastards in court, then hung, drawn and quartered. That is beyond Shocking.

But then I guess you are in Essex.
