I like the 'evilpie' look now and again i have done it several times in the past.   Is this your first time with it all off upstairs?  It's a nice option to have at our age when many blokes have no option.   How's the diet going?  finished now or carrying on til lockdown is over?

As for the pooch god he can jump out of the gym to use a basketball phrase.  Given he is relatively heavy i find that video hard to beleive it's true and not doctored.   

That's nothing for a Mali, absolutely incredible animals and like Tom says incredibly intelligent.

They're basically a small German Shepherd but with the agility of a cat. Some amazing videos on t'internet of them doing things you wouldn't believe were possible.

I'd love one but they would be really hard work. Being so intelligent, powerful and energetic they need to be 'worked' or they'll go crazy.

I'll stick to Rottweilers..... They're basically mini lions. They just sleep and then wake up occasionally for a snack.



So many people don't consider this Matt.

Yeah there's so many dogs that I'd love to have as a companion one day but you have to get something to suit your activity levels.

I love border collies but you're looking at 3 hours per day minimum. Come on people..... It was bred to chase sheep!! Of course it can f**king run all day!!

Husky... Yes it's beautiful, wow look at those eyes.... That coat.... Get me that dog... What do you mean it's capable of pulling a cart 50 miles a day? Does that mean I can't just let it out in the garden a couple of times a day for a piss?

Morons...


Agreed Matt, my border is now 17 months old. On a normal day we are out 3 times a day for about 2 hours a time.  Weekends we generally spend a good part of the day out, can be anywhere between 5 & 7 hours then a late evening walk. He still wants to be active when we get home with his chew/ fighting toys.

Almost everyone in our village owns a dog and I see a few Husky and collie types that I know are being wasted as they are getting very little exercise in relation to which they should be getting.

There is a new law coming that will make trespass a criminal offence, it is designed specifically to target Gypsies and Travellers.

Most people will think it's a great idea... Until they get on the wrong side of it.

A lot of talk about this on most walking/wild camping forums with the threat that landowners will use this to prevent walking/camping on their land.  Luckily in Scotland we have right to roam with basic rules for walkers/campers which works with few problems.

Wild camping also allowed in Scotland if I'm not mistaken Geo?

Yes Tom and most landowners are fine as long as you stick to a basic set of rules:

Camp in small numbers.
Stay in one place for a maximum of three nights only.
Do not camp in enclosed fields of livestock or crops.
Camp away from buildings, roads and historic structures.
Take your litter with you.
Use a stove rather than a fire where possible.
Check advice on fire risk conditions.
Keep fires small, controlled and supervised.
Bury human waste and urinate 30 metres away from open water.
Remove all traces of your tent pitch – including any camp fire debris.

Local council in parts of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs have banned camping in a couple of areas where there have been problems with litter, cutting down trees and other unsociable acts. Caused unfortunately by the day-tripper types as opposed to regular wild campers.

I still spend a couple of days camping a few times a year, obviously lockdown has hindered this. It was my 60th in January and I usually like to get away for that week as I’m not one for all the fuss of birthdays and had planned to go across to Arran for a few days camping with the dog but unfortunately couldn’t. Hopefully get out there in April.

I heard that you can heat the contents of a can by placing it into a pan of water and boiling it. Apparently it won't explode.

If true what a great bit of Info. No more dirty pans to wash and you could heat two or three different things in the same pan without mixing them.

I have to try it. (I'm scared though)

Used to do this in my army days, pre boil in the bag. Just make sure to pierce the top of the tins before placing in the water

All well here Tom, thanks.

Lockdown doesn’t effect me much, since retiring and moving more rural my days consist mostly of walking and exercising a very demanding Border Collie

Due to our location we have all the space and choice of routes we need although we do miss our trips up the hills as that would entail a drive up to the Pentlands risking the wrath of the Edinburgh polis who are more visual than they ever were.

QuIte annoying that someone reporting their neighbour for COVID infractions will get a quicker response than someone reporting a burglary as a friend recently found out.

Cabinet Office drawn up horror show warning on what the country could face this winter. And it’s been leaked to the sun

As Brexit talks slip into acrimony, and covid second wave fears rise.. here is what is on the warning dashboard

cheery stuff

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/12474511/emergency-plans-perfect-storm-no-deal-brexit-coronavirus-second-wave/

Devil you do, devil you don’t.

I would expect any government to have some plan on worst case scenario. There are no big surprises in this for anyone with a bit of sense but it's still used in an attempt to have a go at the government.

I’m actually more worried that if it is the actual government document, who leaked it and are these pricks at the scum paying individuals to leak this info.

Gutted to say the least. First met Mel at a blonde bash and had a great time with Mel, Ginger and Fran. Bumped into her many times around the UK when she was dealing at various comps. Always a joy.

RIP lady.

Lewis Goodall on NN cut through all the bullshit.

If his wife had COVID symptoms they should not have travelled.

If she did not have COVID symptoms there were no exceptional circumstances.

I think it easy to get very tribal about stuff like this especially as this is Cummings.

I can see the logical of protecting the welfare of a 4 year old child. Given the guidance does give everyone the leeway to deal with that situation, I think the isolation in Durham is actually reasonable. Everyone does have the option to do what Cummings did - it just happens we dont tend to have an empty property on our parents estate to use (but that’s just his good fortune).

It’s the trip to Barnard Castle which is the bit that looks irresponsible. That’s the killer for him along with the negative PR for his Government and the damage to the lockdown.

The combination of those last points is why he should resign for me.  


Who is getting tribal? Polling shows the view that what he did was wrong is held by the majority of the population, inc Tory and leave voters. Even right wing newspapers are running headlines criticising and ridiculing the whole thing.

Instead of giving leeway the guidance explicitly stated to not isolate in second homes. I don't know how that could be clearer. Having a child is not an exceptional circumstance. Millions of families have children. Were they all exempt from the rules too? Will they be going forward? Of course not. Hence the government have avoided saying so whilst still contorting to try and somehow say what he did was ok.

As for it being logic and within the spirit of the rules this is clearly not the case. He took his infected family from an area with a high infection rate to an area with a low infection rate. They then ended up in a hospital there and helped (or at the very least risked) spread the virus to an area with a low infection rate. One of the entire points, if not the main point, of the lockdown is to prevent this. If the millions of families with children did the same as may as well have not had a lockdown at all.

Morning all

The final paragraph nails it. From a contain the disease point of view, it’s hard to imagine what you could do, that was worse, than taking the disease to a hospital in a part of the country with low incidence of Covid at the time.

Moving elderly patients from hospitals to care homes where they then contract covid and die. It really wasn't that hard to imagine tbh.

Disclaimer - I cant win my own award.


How does this work?

Three players left in a PLO Home game. It's Empire casino players & staff.

Player A has all the chips 90 k, Player B and me have 20k ish each. A & B know each other, neither know me

Player A says Want to deal ?  ( only 2 places paid ) we both say well hell yeah. Ive raised, so say okay yes fine by me , Player B & I get it in, he wins, I'm out, no problem, we already said yes to a deal.

Player A then says

" I'm okay actually "


Player B says that's sorted then


I then lose my shit and kick holes in a plasterboard wall, with my usual restraint and ladylike behaviour.


So my question is


How long will it take me to drive to the Empire Casino from Cheshire once lockdown ends ?

Depends how much ammo you're  carrying.

Good to hear from you

Help please, I took this pic this morning and I have no idea what this wee beauty is. Google image suggests a goldfinch but I can't find an image of a goldfinch that looks like this. The yellow breast with the distinct black line down the front I can't seem to match. Closest I've found with similar facial markings seems to be a black capped chickadee but doesn't match the body colouring:

Isn't it just a great tit?  I am not sure why it wouldn't be anyway.

Yes spot on Doobs, first I've seen one. Google image not that great then lol
