Well done, mate! 100 up! :clapping:
Well done, Hugh.
Always nice to see an Englishman notch up a century.
LOL, it doesn't happen that often. Ripper, Owen.
Well done Hugh!
Good to see the forum and the members agree with you!
Hope we can post some more MN & MM facts and stories of interest.
Got add my congrats Hugh, well done on hitting the ton. I look forward to reading more of your postings.
Nice one Hugh.
Thank you lads, I should post more I know that, and I will try a little harder to add some content on the Naval/Mercantile war.
Owen are you looking for a bite mate, :argue: I am a highland Scot and proud of it. Unfortunately the Mods have not got a national flag for me yet.
Regards and many thanks
Oi! Dustna blame us poor Mods! Tis a' Lee's doin'!
Well done on the tonne mate.
Thank you Kitty. Of course I didn't mean you when I was havin a go at the Mod's. <insert creep, suck up to mod icon>
Well thats alright then! :>
I was going to warn him however I thought you were big enough and ugly enough to look after yourself!
Thought exactly that about the flag. I have been pushing on that basis for quite a while and Lee is looking into it.
Knowing who you are talking to and where they are from is quite important.
Despite Owen's mistake, his comment re centuries still applies...LOL.
Sure does. Are we rubbing it in?:cry_smile:
Not at all, Spidgeman. I haven't mentioned the Ashes at all...
Did you notice the headlines that went with the BBC's coverage of the funeral of Sir Edmund Hillary?
From the BBC reporter:
I have always pondered about this gentlemen’s game they call cricket. Why do seemingly sane people pay good money to watch a gentleman (bowler) walk miles up the park (slowly) then comes tearing down said park at a rate of knots, then throws this ball at another gentleman with a bat who then taps the ball into the ground and the whole boring process starts again. Anyone?
Congratulations Hugh (I smiled at your being English!).
I can't bear watching cricket either.
The "sport" I really cannot understand though is fishing. Why not just sit on the riverbank (canal??? smelly artificial lake!!!!) and read, or whatever?
Nana, I have to deal with fisherman, and work with an avid fisherman/fishing teacher. believe me, you do not know a fraction of the obsession.
Cricket? Should be played by Cheshire Rules: There are no rules :>
Thank you Nana,
Funnily enough I can't stand fishing either.
For my two friends in Oz, we have a man's game up here in the highlands called shinty, there are no prisoners taken in this game. There is a referee but I am not quite sure why he turns up! Howzat!
It's okay Hugh, I can understand the lack of interest in cricket when Scotland will never win the World Cup...
Never heard of shinty. Please explain!
