  1. Following a vicious attack on my credibility I forward the documents to back up my observations I will refrain from a personal attack on Kingsmills but I am solely tempted. but hiding behind a nom de plume is not my scene
  2. Ok but the dividends are high Today I was devastated by the news from Paris - As a retired Fire Fighter and a Fire Safety Officer I cannot believe how so many important buildings in these Islands and abroad are allowed to be destroyed by fire. I spent virtually my whole adult life , telling people to watch carefully contractors , and other builders. With buildings as important as the " School of Art ", or "Norte Dame,* it is imperative that buildings are checked , every night by trained security guards or others. I remember well the Bradford City disaster which unlike Hillsborough has never been investigated, I. have read reports of combustible litter under the floor boards of the main stand, but nobody has been held to book for doing nothing about it. I am so cross I couldn't give a dam if my shares fall to zero. Sorry for the rant folks. And the digression from the topic
  3. Thanks to the driver and staff of bus two a professional job well done .
  4. I have no grumbles about the performance Just wish after the injury when we passed to their goalkeeper, which set up their first goal, We had just booted the ball out of play. The guy next to me, actually said at the time, it should have been played for a throw in. Small things change games
  5. My wife relies on her lap top, because she does all the data based work for the book selling, She is buying a new one tomorrow at PC world. - The hard drive was unaffected by the collapse my local shop was able to save what she needed. Thanks Scotty for your help
  6. I have been quoted around £300 for a new mother board for my lap top Is this reasonable ? can they not be mended ?
  7. It could be better to use the ground first. If there is bad weather the pitch could be in a bit of a mess for the second match Last time we played Hearts we had 5 goals start and blew it. So a big improvement is required that's for sure
  8. Well said DD very profound. I would not have the temerity to advise anybody . My wife is over 50 she gives me advice I have to take note of? Dow trading at 25170 Galliford trading at 7.05 Market down slightly
  9. Thanks for your interest I got them in around 2000 a broker came into my book shop and he said to buy them . I paid about a £1000 and them I bought some more. later on when they had a share issue.They went up to arpund £10,000 . When the crash came they dropped right down. I bought some more about a year ago with another share issue offer came . I just pick up the dividend twice a year, which is very good compared with interest rates you get at the bank. I really have no intention of selling them. I am 76 this year so unless I go broke they will be left to my kids. They are just a good source of income for me. good solid company that does very well, builds schools and hospitals and the like.
  10. We could swap manager wish Chorley for starters ?
  11. What is the motivation of these fans ? I realise they wish to show their disappointment and displeasure at performances. Is it just a young male problem ? Is it a society problem ?. I say this because , I see very little respect in he media , for important members of society . People these days do not hold back in venting their frustration, in ways in my day would not have been tolerated. I have no answer ? My Dad always said " treat other people as you would wish to be treated yourself, courtesy costs nothing". If people do not enjoy their football, why go to the matches? Imagine if these supporters were Notts County fans, the oldest club in football, founder member of the original football league, about to drop out of the EFL into obscurity. They would really have something to moan about. !!! Yes Johnjo you will see them at Chorley next year, amazing !!!
  12. Sorry I really don't think these fund managers are to be relied on but still they make a lot of money.? Dow today is 25280 Galliford holing firm at 717 slight drop yesterday
  13. Galiford try ▲ 15.50 (2.19%) Gaiford try if you don't know Built and own, but let back to the occupiers of the new building for the University of the Highlands in Inverness
