    Dear Sir, I am writing to thank you for bouncing my cheque with which I endeavoured to pay my plumber last month. By my calculations, three'nanoseconds' must have elapsed between his presenting the cheque and the arrival in my account of the funds needed to honour it. I refer, of course, to...

    Well that is my reading of the response from the government to the petition on funding the mountain rescue services. Just got this through, which, roughly translated out of government speak, is sod off and stop whingeing. We still think what you do is great.

    As you're all aware, since the forum started, DaveS, and the other moderators, have worked extremely hard to make the forum the success it is today. He has done this at the expense of spending time with his family, so with immediate effect Stormforce8 and I have taken over the financial...

    Some of you might have had this email from Red if you're registered on the Varadero forum. This is a really sad day. I've offered my help and support to see if there's any way we can save the site in some way shape or form. Take it over, give Red a rest or whatever. Just thought you'd like to...

    Apparently from next week (1 December 2007) there are new rules for clearing cheques, so that after 7 working days the funds can't be claimed back. Until now, the money can be clawed back if the cheque bounces, which can happen after your bank statement lists the funds as "cleared". I think...

    London Times Obituary of the late Mr. Common Sense 'Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having...

    Hi All, Due to a favourable set of financial circumstances too dull to go into here, I'm in the position to look at a Vara in the very near future. This means my @ will have to go, much as I love it. Just wondered what the opinions of anyone who's forsaken the @ for the Vara were - it's going...
  13. Past National Meets
    Just a quick run through in reverse order for those that missed the awards ceremony itself. 2007 XRV Pool Champion went to MidlifeCrisis for a staggering 8 ball clearance from break. 2007's Most Controversial Post(s) Cup went to Shep for his conspiracy theories and politico-financial verbal...

    I have just watched Tessa Jowell on London TV talking about the Olympics and its already massive budget Overun. It was originally budgeted to cost £2.3 Billion Pounds. It is now up to £9.6 Billion pounds. They are coming out with figures like this 5 years before the event. So i will take a bet...

    It appears I'm not the only one to feel they've really missed out on this amazing trip. I simply must do everything I can to make sure that I'm there next year. I'm sure there's a lot of planning needs to be done, financial, logisitcal, mechanical, so is now the time to start planning for next...
