Both queuing and going to the pub!

Re: RAF Syerston - planned Red Arrows displays this month

Maybe a series of displays planned for later in the year in various locations as a pick me up (pending lockdown restriction lifting?). They certainly won't have any airshows to bother doing a PDA for, and I presume you can't do it in advance of 2021 this early can you? Imminent PDA also mentioned o...

Re: Football

If Leicester goes in to local lockdown, surely any team who have plaid them since the restart would also need to lock down meaning football will need to stop again. Should just end it now and do points per game ending. Why would they need to? The players have been isolated (to all intents and purpo...

Re: Olympus Camera's R.I.P. ?

An OM-1 is a classic Chris - still worth a few bob. Get it out of the loft and stick it on a shelf, classic cameras are very cool things. That said, Mrs WM definitely and most strongly disagrees when I suggest such a thing, so maybe Mrs C will too :-) It does look cool, but I fear you may be right ...
