used cars again by early doors (Member 10235862) on 18-Jul-2014
The used car lot seems to have moved to Stonecross . Three today .   
  • Re: used cars again by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 18-Jul-2014
    Yeah, I noticed a distinct lack of "stock" and yesterday another one had a red notice stuck on it. That notice has been torn off and is lying under the vehicle.

Cheers Smiter! by zap (Member 10216554) on 8-Jul-2014
Smiter has very thoughtfully put on his blog the programme for Furness Tradition, the annual festival where people pretending to be scumbrian pretend to be Irish and fill the streets and pubs with howling, wailing, and the sound of screeching fiddles. Smiter lists the pubs being used so we all know which ones to avoid. So Cheers Smiter   
  • Re: Cheers Smiter! by veepee (Member 10294016) on 9-Jul-2014
    Are there actually any pubs left in town?

  • Re: Cheers Smiter! by Scum (Member 10233909) on 10-Jul-2014
    Bloody good question. The way the cunts are going there soon wont be. That'll please the KUS fuckers. A town with no pubs, no good shops but loads of bastard festivals. AND NO FUCKING WHERE TO PARK.

    Spoke to the Smiter the other day ,the poor old lad looks very frail since his stroke . Good luck to him.
    As for pubs Mr. Scum we still have a fair few but nobody seems keen to re-open Ye Grapes.

  • Re: Cheers Smiter! by zap (Member 10216554) on 10-Jul-2014
    I heard a strong rumour t'other day that Sir Roger de Twattaway has an interest in t'Grapes. Mebbe best get the Bradds sorted afore the empire expands over t'wrong side o town!

    That rumour has been doing the rounds for 6 months.It won't bother me I don't go in either pub ,nor am I likely to. Chataway is also rumoured to be taking over The Grapes and probably the town hall.

Chineses.... by WiseOldDave (Member 10213768) on 3-Jul-2014

    Can't be any worse than the Chippy Bank. Cooking fish and chips isn't hard but they consistently manage to fuck it up and people let them get away with it. A tray of chips shouldn't stick together to form one giant stodgy chip.

  • Re: Chineses.... by Terence Trent Derby (Member 10292850) on 4-Jul-2014
    The Jade used to be good, but they took their eye off the ball when the opened up in Barrow and now it's crap. You're best off going to Taste of Balti these days - good quality Indian and decent prices.

    Now, bear in mind that I'm no gourmand and wouldn't know a haute cuisine from a hole in the ground but I have been known to visit the Beijing Garden (the one on Victoria Rd) and thoroughly enjoyed it. Especially the cry of 'solvingar?' which accompanies the wrapping of the chips.

  • Re: Chineses.... by early doors (Member 10235862) on 4-Jul-2014
    There isn't a decent chinky in town ,just like there isn't a decent chippy ,just like there isn't a decent pie shop. No wonder I'm wasting away to 15st.

  • Re: Chineses.... by veepee (Member 10294016) on 5-Jul-2014
    What we could do with is an Eskimo cafe - where they sell raw fish and frozen chips with seal blubber crackling a speciality. The phrase would then be 'just poppin down t'eskimo to get us mi tea luv'.

Well done that man by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 26-Jun-2014
Trading standards officer has placed warning stickers on those cars for sale parked in Newton street by the Swan. I see one of them has also got a more private personal message on it, to the effect of "heap of junk" "don`t buy this car, you will regret it" and "the seller is a crook". the council should just tow them away for crushing and bill the owner.   
  • Re: Well done that man by early doors (Member 10235862) on 27-Jun-2014
    It's been done before and the cars disappeared for a few days and then came back.

    Aye, and one of `em has the Trading Standards warning sign lying on the passenger seat for all to see. You would have to be stupid to buy one of those cars.

    You seem to have a real downer on Glaxo Mr.Scum. In my opinion the new development is fantastic news for Ulverston. The alternative would be to close the plant.
    You're right about one thing ,the canal was built in 1796 but the pepperpot wasn't built till 1850 so the picture is false.
    Excellent rant by the way !

    It isn`t about being miserable, it`s about sense of humour. Dressing and acting like a prat isn`t my idea of fun. This festival should move to Hollywood where the myth that L & H were even slightly funny can be perpetuated. Now Shriners, they ARE funny.

    Ok redneck but my more general point is that too many people on this forum just complain about everything that goes on in Ulverston. It's not all bad e.g. I like Dickensian but not Flagfest and you won't see me in town on Carnival day . I despise Morris Dancers too.
    I don't think Chaplin was in the least funny but Laurel and Hardy crack me up.
