    I'm probably too cantankerous for this group. It's winding me up already

    Well done Wheeze. This is the best thing I've seen on the Forum and my first response to anything on here for a long, long time!

    Listen Stagger, as doorman of the Masters Lounge, the least you could do is enforce the strict Walses code!
    Oh, and I,ve turned the Wi-Fi off so no-one can sneak a peek at facebook!

    Those in the Long Mynd area may do best with 675/a on the right foot and 675/b on the left.
    Currently the manufacturer recommends two sizes up for 675/a but 1.5 sizes down for 675/b unless you are Scottish when all bets are off.
    Ha ha excellent, Well done Wheeze!

    I once met Terry Holmes when he played for Bradford Northern.
    Very nice Welshman.

    At the ripe old age of 35 I'm verging on being a fully fledged grumpy b*****d.

    Various things get me wound up. Mostly tv and football.

    I flat out refuse to watch any modern tv, except for the excellent University Challenge.

    Football had became a disgrace since "I were a lad"

    At Peris on Saturday, a guy had to retire on Y Garn with a twisted ankle, and thought nothing of getting himself back down to Llanberis. On Sunday I watched a football match where a guy strained his calf, ran around on it for 5 minutes, then decided he couldn't cope, and fell to the floor, and had to be ferried the 20 yards to the dugout on a flipping golf cart. That's just the tip of the iceberg where that sport is concerned...

    University Challenge has been rubbish since they put it on in colour!
