You might just have put "Where's Grenada"....

I doubt very people know, and even less care

What the hell are you on about now?

I google things of interest quite frequently.  However, I don't feel the need to publicise my findings each and every sodding time I do it.

Haven't you got an immunisation program you need to petition the WHO about or something?

Yes it is. 

If you are taking about the natural wonders of the world we are talking "spectacular" rather than merely "pretty" and those on the list fit the bill.

And doubtless there are other beautiful places in the world besides Grenada which I doubt you've been to so can't possibly judge.

I am surprised Bromley hasn't made the list.

04/02/2014 at 15:27

The Channel Tunnel - you got to be kidding me

Also  Bromley did not make list

Do not forget it's Grenada 40th  independence  Day on Friday 7th February 2014

I hadn't forgotten - it's marked in my calendar.

Have you ever seen the film The Dambusters, 12? Guy Gibson had a dog he called 'N*****'. There's been some debate about whether to take that out of the film or be true to history. I must admit I don't know the answer to that one.

Hey Pudge,

Add this to your Calendar Orpington 10k Sunday 14 June 2014

Orpington Road Runners are pleased to tell you about an exciting development to our popular, annual 10k event which will be held on 15th June 2014.

 

For the first time ever we have received permission for the complete 10k route to start, end and take place entirely in and around the beautiful High Elms Country Park in Farnborough, Kent.

 

Entrants can expect lots of beautiful scenery, plenty of parking, good on-site facilities, excellent marshalling from the friendly and encouraging members of ORR plus what we consider will be a challenging, hilly course through the woods and countryside.

 

We are still finalising arrangements but will write again soon with complete information including details of how to enter.

 

We look forward to welcoming you to what we think will be a great event.

 

ORR Race Committee

I just complained I told tham that it was offensive and racist. 

(I should have added  the word rude)  I tasked them to remove the Nxxxxx word.

I don't get out of bed for less than a marathon, Karen.

 

04/02/2014 at 15:50

So you run half marathons in bed?

Interesting you should say that. Both cut and uncut versions continue to be shown.

They are supposedly doing a remake (although it seems to be a long time coming) and the dog's name has been the subject of much discussion. Apparently Guy Gibson was the source of the ideal solution. He sometimes called the dog "Nigsy" so that's what they've decided to use - historically accurate without being insulting.

Folks sorry about the silly spelling mistakes but I trying to avoid wearing my specs

Pudge,

I do apologies to you, your  RH.

04/02/2014 at 16:01

Of course, if you're worried about the 'N' word, I wouldn't watch 12 Years a Slave if I were you!

I know where Grenada is.  I know someone who lives there (for part of the year) and almost went on holiday there a few years ago.  (Got pregnant so couldn't fly at the time we planned to go).

It does look very pretty.

I'll try it out on my black colleagues.
