A very happy birthday Mr Moons Hope you have a really lovely day   <<<<< Iphone 6 Plus  



I like it.


I'm watching it.


Hopefully I'll enjoy it.





I know it's something that the FM's have been discussing for years, now I have found a useful interactive graphic to show everyone.







A number of police forces in England and Wales are reporting the 101 non-emergency phone number is down.

At least 13 forces - including the four Welsh forces and the Metropolitan Police - say there have been technical issues with the line since 09:00 GMT.

The Met Police said calls were not being received via 101 but said the 999 emergency line was unaffected.

There are also reports the 111 NHS non-emergency line has stopped working in Scotland.


Alternative numbers

101 is the contact number for local police in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland for less urgent matters than a 999 call.

Some forces are asking the public to refer to local police websites or call a landline number.

The following police forces are reporting problems:

  • Cheshire Constabulary
  • Cleveland Police
  • Durham Constabulary
  • Dyfed-Powys Police
  • Gwent Police
  • Hertfordshire Constabulary
  • Hampshire Constabulary
  • Metropolitan Police
  • North Wales Police
  • Northumbria Police
  • South Wales Police
  • Sussex Police
  • West Mercia Police

A list of alternative non-emergency numbers is available on the 101 website.

A Met Police spokesman said they were experiencing "technical issues" with 101 and advised people to report non-urgent crime via their website.

"We are working with our service provider to rectify this issue as soon as possible," a spokesman said.

The Home Office, which oversees the 101 line, has yet to issue a comment.


NHS Scotland tweeted: "111 phone service having technical problems across UK this morning. In Scotland NHS 24 available via 08454 242424 for those needing help."


This is how you do it.............




I know some of you enjoy a series. I have just seen a report on one which is starting on BBC One and starring Michael Palin (probably why our local media are covering it).


Series starts: Sunday 23 November | 9.00pm-10.00pm | BBC ONE | 3 Parts




At the age of ‘eighty-odd’, Tom Parfitt (Michael Palin) sits alone in his terraced house in the otherwise entirely Asian community of a small Yorkshire town, and remembers a strange drowned figure washed up on a beach.

Tom carefully fakes a fall to trick social worker Alison Denning (Rebekah Staton) into taking him into residential care. Roshana Salim (Mina Anwar), his friend and neighbour, is upset to see Tom leave, especially when he insists she must never visit.


At the old people’s home, Tom meets 18 year-old care assistant Hannah Ward (Jodie Comer) and they like each other immediately. Hannah is puzzled to discover he’s brought nothing with him but an empty suitcase.

Social worker Alison visits Tom alone in his room to present a framed photograph of himself as a little boy, which she has brought from his old house to help him feel at home.


Mysterious noises bring Hannah running to find that Alison has fallen from Tom’s third floor window. In what looks like a shocking accident, the entire window frame has broken free from the wall. Hannah finds Tom cowering in the corner of the room, claiming: “There’s something missing, and I can’t find it.”



Who would like a hoverboard just like the one in Back to the Future?








Ironic given who he has just employed as manager.


Whelan says he has 100's and 100's of Jewish friends - I for one find that hard to believe, who truly has that many friends especially from one religious group!


I smell a back peddling liar.





Just watching This Morning and although I can't stand Gok he has made a good point - buy one good LDB and never spend a penny again... unless you change shape.
