My new-ish line manager recently asked when my last 1:1 was, I think it was in the late nineties.

Branston beans are probably my favourite, i do quite like Aldi's which are a lot cheaper and have a ring pull. Biggest disappointment though is heinz which i always used to love but are too watery now.

My parents are big fans of Branston beans too, they have become popular judging by the shelves. Quite the business coup by Branston thinking about it, especially on this island. I think they're something to do with Crosse and Blackwell (blast from the past). Apologies, I digress, I could talk beans all day long :supergrin:

The women’s football results and headlines on the beeb website taking priority over the Championship and other lower leagues.

I get they’re trying to raise the women’s game profile and I think that’s great; but does it have to be so manufactured and take precedence over hugely more popular leagues? It’s like some kid has taken over the editorial of the bbc football pages and sticking in his his own Sunday league results and gossip in the middle of the main headlines.

Agreed, they're like a football match where you were losing 3-0, but then you brought on your sub, who had only just recovered in time, and he made you better and you managed to pull a couple of goals back but then one of your players gets sent off and the game has gone to extra time, (did I mention it was a cup game?), and you think you can hold on and win on penalties but then you lose as someone blazes over the bar which is like not wearing a mask.

I will go with that. I used to be a baked bean 'snob' - Heinz or nothing, but they are now well down the list.

As you say, Branston are probably the best, followed by many own labels. Heinz are among the worst and particularly flavourless; they need a good slug of Worcester Sauce. The lower salt ones are particularly bad. Now, I realise salt is bad for you, but used properly it is a great flavour-enhancer. Probably cost-cutting recipe changes - these conglomorates need the money. :rolleyes: They need bean-tasters, not bean-counters.

CamberleyEagle 30-11-2021 10:00 AM

Sometimes they'll put a slightly blurry photo up with a football headline like 'goal of the season contender at Leeds' and I click on it and it's a lady scuffing a shot from 30 yards that dribbles under the keeper. I still fall for it occasionally but they're all clicks as far as the BBC is concerned.

from the BBC website to illustrate your point

Rachel Furness - Northern Ireland's leading women's scorer of all time - surpassed David Healy's men's record of 36 goals

This was also mentioned on 5 live with women's and men's omitted.

They are 2 seperate and didtinct records.

I do actually wear earbuds when doing long cycles, but only to listen to navigations, not for music etc. as I think it’s safer than looking down at a screen, and would never wear noise cancelling earbuds.

Is that acceptable?:D

I don’t think it’s rubbish, but I do think that at the moment it has no place to be as prominent as it is within the media. It’s a bit of a slap in the face of the men’s lower league game that operates at a very high level, with more support than any lower leagues anywhere in the world; and yet their media time and visibility has been reduced to make way for grossly less popular and inferior quality women’s leagues.

It’s hard to say it because I do actually love the fact that were seeing so many young girls playing football now. I was over the park a while back and saw a group of teenage girls just having an informal kick about like we all did growing up, and just thought it was brilliant to see. Obviously I didn’t watch too long or else I may have got arrested.

Agree with this and as for your previous Yoof Opportunites Intern comment I COMPLETLY agree. I hated at the World cup with all the Smilies and emoticons they added to all the videos.

My wife still likes to use a day planner (I know, old dog new trick etc..) and I recently ordered her the refill pages for 2022.

Twice this week already I have received emails from them asking me to review the product. Now tell me how one reviews something that is not going to be used until January? At the same time is exactly the same as it was for 2021, 2020, 2019 etc., etc..

I don't think in my 50+ years of following football I've every seen a scoreline of 20-0, in fact when I used to play we were on the end of a couple of real hammerings and I don't recall anything over 10 or 12-0 tops.

I didn't watch the women's game yesterday, but can only imagine what a farce it must have been.

Might be time for football to introduce the mercy rule like they have in US softball games. Maybe at 10-0 the game is called and they al walk off and have a beer at the bar instead.

Straya tonked American Samoa or similar by more than that a few years ago.

edit - it was 2001 and the score was 31-0 with Archie Thompson getting 13 of them. Palace connections - Popovic, Muscat and Moore all played.

Things that annoy you
 
To continue my painter saga…. Contacted the guy Monday and we agreed a price. Said he could start Tuesday and turned up as promised on time. Took my doors away to spay in his shop (which evidently is his garage). Said they would be back later to do trim. No show until this morning where they spend an hour priming 2 door trims only to disappear again. Just showed up again at 4pm to do a bit more.

This guys are obviously juggling multiple jobs which is OK as the primer needs to dry and I’m in no hurry, but it means someone needs to be here all the time as we never know when they are coming.

Thank God for the BBS to keep me amused all day!

Edit: gone again at 4:45...

:D

I remember singing it with my old man in a boozer in Edinburgh when we took him up there for his 65th birthday to watch Scotland England in the 6 nations. That’s the last time I sang it. He’s 83 in 6 weeks.

People that type 'no' for 'know' . . . yes I get certain abbreviations where several letters are involved several times over but this one? Really? You're just revealing how idle and immature you are.

The letter H is pronounced 'A - CH' and not 'HAY - CH'
It shouldn't bug me, but it does:D

I can't believe they haven't had a shitload of complaints about this.

The Guardian, again. Today they had "acclaimed" writers explain how they would reinvent 007.

One suggestion was this:

I bet she might.

On the advert theme, them annoying meerkats. Pretty obvious the ad agency are saying to the client "please give us a film contract." It's a poxy comparison website you oafs!

I think we are past being able to be sure of that. There is no sane endpoint to the ideological mindset of so many Guardian readers.

Firefox update again... changes everything to "dark" mode.

Apparently it is also tied into you operating system and ****ed the appearance of that also.

Restored system to 2 days ago, but apparently appearance is not something that gets restored.

All put back to how I like it now... but **** them!

Hedgehog 10-12-2021 08:10 PM

After doing some research it appears that the only way to turn off the dark mode in Firefox is go into the configuration settings which is fraught with danger for the tech idiots like me.

Why can’t they a) leave well alone or b) just have an on/off option in settings?

Microsoft Edge Pop-ups. Despite following all instructions in settings and a great deal of gnashing of teeth, they still appear. Most annoying is the Tesco - my phone number has won a grand. I haven't shopped in Tesco for eight years. Oh! and my Norton Utilities has expired . . . I ain't with Norton.

Which is why edge is so shite. Just use another browser such as Chrome and you will be fine.

I just went to make an annual donation to a charity that I won't name, but is one of the large ones, on behalf of my cousin in the UK. We do this every year rather than gifts. They make a donation to our charity of choice, and we do the same for theirs.

Anyway, previously there is a donation you can make as a gift and they would send a card to the person you name telling them we have made a donation on their behalf, and would include a message from us, like "Merry Christmas" etc..

This year they are not doing this unless you donate $100... Now I understand the cost associated with sending these cards, especially as this would be an international mailing, but my contention is throughout the year at least once a month they send mailings to us containing notepads, mail address labels, newsletters, and pleads for more donations. If they can cut back on some of this crap that goes straight in our bin, then maybe they could continue sending cards to the recipient of the gift donation.

Very annoying.

Now I've had to send an email to my cousin with a copy of the acknowledgment of the donation saying we made it in their name... but it doesn't have the same feeling in my book, which I appreciate is silly, but none the less.

Irish Catholics generally pronounce it "haitch". I would say that's because they are inbred simpletons, but so are their hun cousins and even they can say it properly.

Some prick complained about a delivery drivers parking on Twitter… the driver was delivering to my mates shop… he caused no delay… didn’t inconvenience anyone… but some prick… took a photo and tweeted his company and the local police force.

There’s also a couple of BBS’rs on Twitter… that I just can’t understand… I dunno if it’s a age thing… but they come across as needy phlegmtards.

One… will have a disagreement on here… then go straight on to Twitter and say “someone on the BBS just said…..” then his sycophantic followers all bum lick him.

The other … is a massive fukkin narcissist… he posts puerile crap like

“Lads… I just cooked some cracking roast potatoes”

Or

“Fellas… I just got up one min before my alarm was due to go off #winning”

I just can’t get my head around it… who picks up their phone… to tell people they’ve made potatoes or woke up?
