I was speaking to someone yesterday who was at the match on saturday and he said Sunderland were all over Man U. I don't think they can sink any further and it's only because of mediocre teams outside the top 4 that they are where they are. It looks like everyone's protesting about the cost of match tickets. That's been long overdue. £91 to watch a Chelsea match. It's just laughable.
Wherever there's money, there's thieves and scallywags. I hope they catch whoever took that voucher and make an example of them. If you can't trust people where you work, who can you trust. It was a good job that you and Mrs Grim were away at the time of all that happening. It would have been mighty stressful for her if she'd have been under suspicion.
I've been sorting stuff out for the arrival of my car on 1st march. It's all been registered, taxed and insured so I just have to pay for it when I pick it up. It's always exiting getting a brand new car even if it is money down the drain. lol. Still, I've been the poor man of the street for a while with my old cars but now I'll be top dog and will have to start looking down my nose at some of the bstds. lolol
The markets have been great. It's big divi season. Better known as bear hunting season. lol. The iii board is ridiculous for bear talk. Some of them must be getting their faces ripped off with the shorting they're doing. Like I say, the bottom is always zero but the top can be sky's the limit. We may not have seen the last of the selloffs but I prefer to buy all the way down from the top than selling all the way up from the bottom. Anyway, we need a bit of a pullback to get those daily charts back into a better position for the bulls. We're getting too overbought at the moment so a decent little pullback should see us plough ahead again. Knowing how this works though, it could be that most people have missed the boat and they'll have to buy higher up than they'd sold out for.
,Where are you going this year to see Coldplay? Not Paris I hope. Still a lot of trouble over there with terrorists. Don't they ever play in Jersey? everyone else seems to.
I see you're still going to your northern soul nights.Does Mrs Grim go with you or just you and her cousin? Make the most of getting out and about while you can because the older you get the less you want to do. I'm happy going out for a couple of pints and a couple of meals a week these days. When I think of what I used to do. It's downhill all the way from here.
I picked up my new car on Tuesday and drove it up and down the street a couple of times to make sure everyone saw it. lol.. It's a cracking little car though. It's not it's turn to go out until next Tuesday though. It was the roadsters turn today to have a run out and it'll be the other Audi on Saturday..They've all got to take their turn. lol It's daft having all these cars really but they're all paid for and the old cars still have plenty of life in them.
I've been doing a lot of decorating the last couple of weeks and it's coming to an end now. I just have to lay some laminate flooring and the bottom end of the living room is finished. The rest of the living room needs doing but I'm having a rest now and may start that in the summer. There's been a lot of chance in my house over the last year or so but it needed to be done.
My ladyfriend's dog had to be put to sleep on Monday.He was 17 so had lived a long life. I'd known him for 13 years. He'd been dying over the last coupie of weeks and she'd found it really difficult to make that decision but when I went through on Saturday I could see that he couldn't go on like he was any longer and I think she realised that. He was a lovely dog and a lot of people were really upset but his time had come. Mind you, I'm sick and tired with all these dogs dying. My two dogs and now him. It's just a hammer blow every time.
Good one for you Wayne:
Ex-McCain Aide Will Back Clinton Over Trump
May 3, 2016By Taegan Goddard103 Comments
Mark Salter, a former top aide to Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), says he will support Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump in November as both candidates appear close to locking down their parties’ nominations, MSNBC reports.
Said Salter: “Basically, I think she’s the more conservative choice and the least reckless one. Trump’s policy views are like some drunk’s rant. If he tried to do anything like he says he will, we’d have no allies, a lot more enemies, and more of them with nukes. Finally, he’s unfit for the office, too, temperamentally and morally, a narcissistic bigot.”
Steve, put a cork in it! 110 sites enrolling and getting positive feed back from key industry leaders who are involved in the trial
and now Ronnie Corbett - I am giving a wide berth to media stuff for a while Moon, I am not able to take all this negative stuff with people from my childhood shuffling off this mortal coil. The more well-known people there are, the worse its going to get, and sometimes this communications revolution is a drag as we get to see it all.
Not long to anniversary time for our board Moon, how do you wish to celebrate? lolol
Since we last posted, it would seem Man Utd have gotten themselves out of another fine mess with two one-nil wins, and bizarrely have a chance of 4th spot! Wouldn't it ne ironic then, for Man City to finish fifth, but go on to win the Champions League and claim that fourth Champions League spot - stranger things have happened this season, though I am still expecting the wheels to fall off the Leicester juggernaut - think a draw at Sunderland and Spurs beating Man Utd this weekend will shake it up and put fear into Vardy and co.
What a T20 cricket World Cup Final! Was actually very happy to see the Windies win it in that style. To bludgeon 4 sixes in a row in the final over was astonishing and a real shot in the arm for cricket over there in general. Don't think they will care a jot that the Windies ladies won the female version lolol.
Shares are still going from strength to strength, possibly by loads of oil shorts being closed and driving the market upwards - though fell away a bit in pm trading on the Dow, have now reached highest portfolio figure ever, adjusted for new store openings and Easter break obviously lol. How are you playing it now? Bit stagnant for you?
Not seen Line Of Duty, don't really watch much TV off the menu, more going for Freeview A La Carte channels, there isn't much on BBC and ITV that interests me anymore.
Just an idea re ISIS, starve them of the oxygen of publicity, but yeah, think they might escalate it to ensure they were on the medias lips.
Some day I hope to be in the "National Big Boys Club" like you. Are you really that obese ?
had a great result today Moon. Went to our local JEC shop casing out a new Samsung 48" curved 3D 8500 series TV, and really fancied it, but had to wait for Mrs Grim to feel well enough to go. So went tonight, and it was £300 less than last week! Well happy!. They gave me a £100 voucher to use next month as well, so will get a 3D bluray player with it - they also knocked off the £15 delivery charge, and told me it was easy to set up so not to pay £15 to get them to do it. This thing is future-proofed as well, and is compatible with 4K when that comes out, and is a Smart TV, so has Netflix, bbc Iplayer, youtube etc built in. This is a new era for us!!!
Blimey Moon - a great sporting weekend for you, Utd beating city at the Etihad, and England winning the Slam - long while since you've been able to celebrate that hard lolol. Beats supporting Wales and Portsmouth hands down!
Spring is springing at last - no more cold stuff please - hitting the dizzy heights of 13" this Easter weekend, so not quite beachy, but heading that way. What with the clock change and all, feeling a bit more positive.
Watched Lord Of the Rings last night - new TV breathing new life into old films lol. Putting on Shrek tonight to check out animated improvements - even enjoyed watching the Voice - amazingly colourful. Best investment in entertainment I have ever made.
Not much going on the FTSE today, not sure how you would trade this, just hold onto everything until some breakout either way?
Okay, hot dogs or cereal for tea tonight - these are the dilemnas in life lol
Yes, a good win with 3 cracking goals against Germany but we reverted to type against Holland tonight. A great pity about losing Cruyff. A true great from our era.
No storm damage up this way for a change. lol. I don't think we even had much rain.
Yes, I'm a fan of Happy Valley. Series 1 was just as good as series 2. Do you watch Line of Duty? That's another favourite of mine.
I've been clearing out the loft the last few days and I'm only half done. Been chucking out old dvd recorders, tv's, old laptops and even vhs recorders. Haven't a clue why most of this stuff ended up in the loft but getting rid of it has certainly made a difference.
I don't think a ban on the ISIS coverage will deter them. They'll probably just ramp up their atrocities to make sure they are in the news. It's all just so twisted as to how they think. Like I've said before, I can't see an end to it now, even if Trump does get into the White House and bombs them to smithereens. The Israelis have the right idea. For every suicide bombing in their country, they blow up their people twice as hard. An eye for an eye. As much as they suffer, the bombers' countrymen and family will suffer twice as much.
A nice drop and recovery on the FTSE today. I'm still buying any dip so it's working quite nice at the moment.
April15 is the day the Feds take our money. But this year we can get life changing cash windfall.TRXC holds critical patents that could unlock $18 billion market. I am talking about USA alone.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Hillsborough has been a national disgrace. Corruption, secrecy, hiding and getting rid of evidence. This was all out in the open years ago and they've just got around to getting to the bottom of it and giving a verdict after 27 years. It's just never ending and with these *&^*oles in charge and nothing will ever change. That Brazillian bloke killed in the tube station is another one. They just hide the truth and get away with it. These poor families will never get any peace from all this. Confirming the police were at fault 27 years ago won't bring those poor people back.
