Yes;  it's the greasy Portillo as presenter that deters me from watching.

 On a slightly different note, for Fester: have you watched Orville?  It's on Fox at the moment and it's written and produced by Seth McFarlane, not known for his erudite or socially-aware tendencies, but the Orville is quite remarkable. It's essentially Star Trek - TOS - given a makeover.

What marked ST out from other Sci Fi was its preparedness to deal with the socio-political issues of the day.  Orville is continuing that tradition, and - although what passes for humour from McFarlane is still in the script in places - it's about as far from Family Guy as you could get, and pulls off the trick of getting you to empathise with and care about the characters.

Very much worth seeing if you enjoy Star Trek.

What channel Ian?
Itís not something Iíve heard of.

Hang on, that was only voted upon and instantly dismissed by a large majority only a month or so ago.

I hear Drew Pritchard has plans for apartments in the old Chapel he has bought, hope he is sorting out some parking that area is a nightmare already with all the holiday cottages  :o

"The cabinet also decided to put extra measures in place to help residents recycle, including free collection of large items"

Wonder what that will comprise?

I'm trying to find out if they have TPO's on them Hugo, but I don't hold much hope.

That's an interesting Fact DVT as some of the trees in question have white flowers and some pink. Could that be the reason some cases had large prickles and others none.

What I can remember is getting some large bruises whenever the opposition missed the conker and hit my hand instead.

Not sure H & S legislation is to blame;  rather, workers who want as little to do as possible using it every opportunity they get.

Shame to be chopping down trees but there is more awareness now about disease than there used to be - back then trees died and fell down, there was no tree euthenasia (spelling?).

On the subject of conkers - I used to collect mine off a tree in Bodnant that had pink flowers - the tree is in Furnace meadow which opened to the public last April - the conkers were harder - that was 60 years ago!  As a guide there now I relate this to visitors and whilst I expect children not to know about playing conkers, I find that many parents also haven't a clue what I am talking about (grandparents are fully aware, though!) - you make a hole in the conker, thread a shoelace through it and then bash your mate's similar conker on a string, taking turns until one breaks!

Health & Safety has destroyed many of the past-times we had as kids, yet does not seem too disturbed about kids eyesight and hearing being destroyed by spending all their time on their X-Box or listening on their MP3's!

Do those trees have any Tree Preservation Orders ( TPO's ) on them Meleri?

Fix My Street / Re: Yet more fouling, 20th January
« Last post by Hugo on Yesterday at 12:21:13 PM »
It seems to be a problem everywhere Meleri and I don't know what the answer to it is.   There are hefty fines for those who commit the offences but I've not heard of many irresponsible dog owners being fined.
One person was fined a number of times for letting his dog foul on the West Shore so you can't educate these type of people.

In Wentworth Avenue on Colwyn Heights where the school is there are three big litter bins and one red dog bin yet I've still seen dog muck on the pavement.     So knowing full well that there are children in the area they still don't pick up after their dogs.   
I must admit that when I'm walking my dog and if I see another dog making a mess that I'll hang around to ensure that the owner picks the mess up and if not I'll have a word with them.
