  1. As a little in recompense, after all the help and support Australia has given us in the past, I just hope my my own Country can find the means and the way to help.
  2. These are all damn good ideas and I've made notes. I've just installed True Earth Gt.Britain so I'll be having another look around my own Country in something approaching accurate looking scenery for a change from the flatness that comes with photographic. Happy Christmas and New year to everyone..
  3. I had it once while on a business trip to Glasgow. The ingredients are a bit off putting but it tasted real good.
  4. Thanks fellers. Lawrence, perhaps you're going the wrong way round?
  5. Thanks chaps. Sorry i haven't replied before. Your suggestions and comments thank you are keeping me busy!
  6. Hi Teecee. Thanks for the reply. I'm like you with P3D but what are the new 'fancy' sims you're talking about?
  7. No more coughing but everyone else has 'gorn orf' except you, Lawrence and me. Was it something we said?
  8. Last post ....mine.....23rd October. Where have you all gone?
  9. Always been a Ford man myself and always will be. My old Escort is eighteen years old now, is really comfy and still drives like a new car. It'll see me out.
  10. Sorry to learn of your PC difficulties Roger. I went through similar frustrations with FSX a few years ago and learned those problems are enough to pull your hair out. In then end I solved mine by throwing money at it and getting a new PC built for me. I explained the problems to the tec guy, he gave me details of how to overcome them. I got a new PC with everything he suggested doubled! Cost a bomb and took forever to get everything back on even though most of it was on back-up discs but did the trick! Hope you get over yours soon mate.
  11. Whiskey. Ugh. Can't stand the stuff! Taking cough mixture. Love the taste...doesn't do much for the cough though. Cough still hanging around and kept us awake last night. I'd suggest I sleep in the spare bedroom but the last time (years ago) I suggested that I was threatened with the meat knife!
  12. I wish I could get rid of my cough. Any ideas?
  13. Just shows how ignorant I am Nick....about virtually anything! I must say though that in my case ignorance is definitely bliss.
  14. At first I thought you lot were getting confused. To us in England a 'block' usually means a building containing flats-apartments to you. Mind you, I suspect you could contain one of our flats in one of your big cars!!!
  15. Thanks for the heads-up Rodger. As you know I don't read war stories about WW1 or 2 and you are aware of the reasons for that but in view of your support of reading my books I'll certainly be obtaining yours as soon as I see it on Amazon if only for Keif & Kev'! A 'heads up' would be nice. Rob, the nice thing about the Kindle Oasis is the handling is so much easier. With the regular Paperwhite the on/off button is at the bottom so as soon as it rests or even touches your clothing it turns itself off! Mind you, the Oasis is so much more expensive and the one thing negative I have to say about it is that unlike the normal Paperwhite it won't fit into a jacket pocket.
  16. Thanks Nick. The one I'm reading at the moment is by William Black. I also read all the C J Petit novels, Etta Foster, Cassidy Hanton, Katie Wyatt etc., etc. Too numerous to mention really. Also if course Louis L'Amour. Going to readers I'm an Amazon man, so virtually all my purchases except food are from them. All the best mate and happy reading.
  17. Got my new toy today. Besides flying, I read. And don't laugh...Western romances mostly. Anyway I got the new Kindle Oasis. I think I'm going to like it. It's much superior to the Paperwhite because it doesn't have the on/off button on the bottom. I was always turning the Paperwhite off by mistake because the on/off button being on the bottom. Damn silly. Anyway, there's no danger of turning the new one off by mistake because its nicely located at the top. It cost me though. About treble the price of the normal Paperwhite and because its wider it won't fit into a normal jacket pocket so I'll have to keep the Paperwhite for travelling. I know its a flying forum Nick but you know us old blokes, we'll talk about anything!
  18. Thanks Derek. I've got everything I need now and I think its going to take the rest of my life to use all you kind folks suggested! All the best
  19. Hi JohnB. I've also been using PlanG for years and it is very good. However, some of the suggestions here also have a lot of merit and I'm going to be hard put to it to find which I ever like best!
  20. Ok - I've got both Sky Vector and AirNav now thanks DadTom and KenQ for that information. I can see from the brief look at these that they are going to be very useful as I plan my flights for the future.
  21. Thanks chaps I'll have a look tomorrow on the big computer.
  22. I don't envy you that visit fizzelle and hope the news is good. A friend of mine who coincidentally also loves on Yorkshire and has the same problem as you seems to be keeping advancement of that awful complaint at bay. I certainly wish you all the best.
  23. My knowledge of USA Geography is really lamentable, Can someone, preferably in the UK recommend a map of the USA I can purchase that shows all the airports please? John
  24. They didn't put me down and sent me home unscathed and not really knowing why I'd been. After all the normal tests, we were sent in to the consultant and spent most of the time chatting about a book he had just read by a chap who has been in Weishien Prison of war camp where Sheila and her family were incarcerated during the war. Come to think of it, I needn't have been in the room at all!
