  1. Seaine, if its a British round then you can just enter and pay on line at the Bike trial Federation website. (No licence) If its a club round, if you are only doing one round then you can get a day membership on the day. Just pre enter at the respective clubs contact details. its easy! Wouldn't worry about cycling Ireland, all the national bodies no nothing about trials. But the Scottish one is coming to understand the benefits of trials. See you this year.
  2. Thanks for posting, My Dad and mother in law both have Parkinsons, both to a much lesser extent, but that was just amassing to watch. They have legalised it in some states in America for medical use. Big pharmaceutical companies wont have a money interest, so it will be interesting to see where this goes, as its not just Parkinsons that it relieves symptoms. Cant see it happening in this country?
  3. I was going to give you a round of applause but short arms.
  4. Today all motivated, again bring 2017 on, cant wait.
  5. I was actually thinking along those lines and agree with you. take it a step further and we all do it in our gardens, then the travel issues go away, everybody will be clean and Mark will need somebody else to try and have fun with. Guess I don't do well with the keyboard warriors and my violin is much bigger. I don't do social media does that make me a dinosaur and have wee arms. Mark ready for your reply?
  6. Guess its time to go put my enthusiasm and time into a sport that someone gives a F***
  7. What like being a weegie?
  8. Nah Iv got 15+ years onya youngster. Just watched a documentary from Sweden, the right are laying it on big time on the streets and in parliament. Had to laugh at the pretend call to prayer from a van in a posh suburb from these right wing extremists at six in the morning. I am an atheist, but a bit worrying when they ask churches to remove crosses as it offends other religions. Going a bit to far? Read your link, interesting. Have been saying that and that facebook and other social media (which I will never have, although outwith of this discussion has its uses) is a newish phenomenon, that in the last to elections has no doubt led to where we are now. The main stream press are no better in my opinion in the reporting of news nowadays. But where do you then form opinions that make the masses do the correct thing. It is also the masses insashable need for completely un-news worth crap that has led the way. Just look at the celebrity news that is a huge part of out media in all formats. i don't give a flying F**K who got married divorced or got plastic surgery. I really really don't care
  9. my opinion is, that it is low level politicians and media are feeding people the wrong answers and even the wrong problems. crime has been going down for years, terrorism as well, but still people are more afraid than ever. Just a point Jeff, I don't think I ever stated that Info wars is a credible news feed, (but there must be some truths in their or they would be slapped with all kinds of injunctions?)what I did introduce was a topic for discussion. I agree with most of your points in your post. But being older, i agree that our life is much easier now than in the past, but the present brings its own more complex life. Mainly social media in the most recent generations has a lot to answer for, because everybody has more information and therefore opinions. (which can also be a good thing) Some people find it very easy to spout hate to others, if they do not agree with there points of view on these modern platforms. A problem being that there is to many ways of reading a statement and keyboard warriors and others can insight there views to millions without consequence or debate. Again genuine question, why do they feel the need to make the masses more afraid than ever, when it would seem to me that if they said that actually things are getting better, now more than ever vote for me? I know the press would not sell any papers or advertising if they reported happy things and just the news. Personally I blame the Eastenders/reality TV soap culture, life is all doom and gloom message.
  10. I do agree with that point, but why did it get to that situation in the first place? (genuine question I am asking)
  11. Is that not what happened yesterday?
  12. Yes it is if the establishment is corrupt and self serving and needs changing. In the western world we have moved on from coups and uprisings and we do it by this voting method. We the world are in a very difficult period of our history just now and as I see it, it is going to get a lot worse before it gets better, or maybe I am just to old and cynical. Totally agree with your last point, but they all are.
  13. Scotland allowed 16 year olds to vote in the independence vote, for exactly the reasons you mention. (They said how bad we are treated by the rest of Britian (England) where actually there is no truth in that) We have a pathetic national anthem that is only about kicking English ass back home, REALLY in this decade. I feel really positive and proud singing that this weekend at the Rugby.
  14. Two weeks to go, one offered to attend and help, couple of points raised to be discussed and one with a sense of humour.
