  1. Hi Mint. Sorry for the delay in responding but had a quick turnaround before our next trip. We stayed just outside of Ajaccio - where the airport is. Ajaccio is the capital of the south and the old town where we stayed had typical narrow streets that you find in the Med, close to the cathedral and Napoleon's house (he was born there but wasn't there for long). There are lots of bars and places to eat along the front. Food prices were ok and the food was good. Drinks were good, paying more for wine and beer was about 8 euros a pint, but the local beer was good and the micro pub
  2. Me too, plus the The Victoria Ground, Burden Park, The Manor Ground, Elm Park, Millmore and the Goldstone Ground. Those were the days!
  3. Just skimmed most of this, but seems to be going off the original question. Can someone clarify please? Are we talking: current 92? any team previously in the 92? friendlies? grounds - ie can count twice if been to old and new grounds? non-league? foreign grounds? For the record, I've been to 67 of the current 92.
  4. A man was sent to prison for the first time and was terrified about all the things he'd heard about what men do to men during the long, dark nights in lock up. A guard escorted him down the corridor to his cell and all the time he was hoping his cellmate would be as near to normal as could be possible. The guard stopped suddenly and said (with an evil smile on his face) "Here you are - you're in here" and chuckled to himself as he locked the door and walked off. The cell was very dimly lit and it was hard to see who was in there with him, as a shadow was cast over the bottom bunk
  5. Got woken up in the early hours the other day by a badger on our patio!! We've had the odd fox or two but never expected this. It'd gone by the time I found my phone.
  6. At least you'll be able to see it in the dark!
  7. Sums it up completely. It's not just offshore though - what with theirs trusts and tax avoidance schemes.
  8. Mykonos - too fecking expensive, full of American and Chinese tourists and Love Island wannbees!
  9. You're not Dad enough to appreciate them!
  10. Came across the comedy This Way Up on Channel 4 - box set of 6 episodes. Need to go with the first two and it gets better then. You might need subtitles with the fast pace of the Irish accent sometimes. Good though - at least we thought so.
  11. Just thought I'd chuck this out again in case anyone has been in the meantime. Any feedback would be appreciated.
  12. Absolutely agree with you Deb. My (now grown up) kids hate me for not taking them there. To me Disney = films. I always said to them that you may as well have a McDonalds World.
  13. and a lot better than the lager pish they serve up!
  14. Love this thread. So much I agree with and others where my experiences differ completely.
  15. And there was me worrying about nothing eh.....................
  16. Am I the only one who, when completing the survey, thought (suspected) that if you don't choose an enhanced / corporate type season ticket, you will be banished to the less popular corner or upper reaches of the new east stand? Might be me being old and cynical though.
  17. Fantastic aren't they? I took this in Corfu Town in May. There were 100s of them!
  18. Went in March this year and really loved the place. Stayed in the old quarter. Really easy to get around - v good public transport. Lots to see. Good food, friendly people etc. I asked a similar question and got loads of good info and advice from this thread, so if you search you'll see for yourself. Let me know though if you want any other info. Enjoy!

    Just being made redundant. Any ideas?
  20. I think this is the one thing that is really noticeable about the city centre. The council - and thereby the council tax payers - have spent a fortune on new paving and the amount of gum stuck on it is ridiculous. It's such an obvious eyesore.
  21. Two nuns were walking along a narrow country lane when a naked man ran past them. One of the nuns had a stroke............................ the other couldn't reach!
  22. Unfortunately, religion and child abuse seem to go together.
