Re: Udon Hospital is great!

I have a family member who I have recently learned might have to have her galbladder removed because of gallstones. Looking briefly online I found: Open gallbladder removal is considered a safe operation. Complications are rare. However, every surgical procedure carries some risks. And: Whenever pos...

Re: U.K. going on lockdown, USA stopping restricting movement. WTF

I feel sorry for Americans too. If China can get rid of the virus,the Americans shouldn't be enduring the Trump pandemic. The US should have been able to squash it. The US had been rated the best prepared nation for a pandemic. NZ's national pandemic plan was useless so we turned to the WHO and form...

Re: EPL Banter Thread

A reader's post in response to Jonathan Liew's match report in The Guardian: A hard fought game against a decent Palace side. We got a penalty decision in our favour which is nice even the new rule is kind of sh[x]te. But this is an astonishingly bitter report full of snide comments. I don't know wh...

Re: America's history

Ken Burns' landmark documentary "The Civil War" hasn't aged well: The nine-part documentary drew 40 million viewers — one in every six Americans alive at the time. President George H.W. Bush watched it. So did Army Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, while preparing for the Persian Gulf War. And it has had a l...

My list is short too. Thommo and Warnie are two of my favourites. Warnie isn't a Carlton supporter. Boonie was also a legend. :lol:

Re: EPL Banter Thread

Possibly. Moving on from arrests to red cards, I read on Wiki: Since the mid-1980s, the rivalry has intensified both on and off the field and, since the inception of the Premier League in 1992, the Merseyside derby has had more players sent off than any other Premier League game. It has been referre...

Re: Vale "Deano"

One of my Kiwi friends used to really hate Dean Jones so I got a lot of mileage talking Jones up over the years. If I'd known Jones was a Carlton supporter I might not have done that.
