    Rich, don't know if you recall "Shantys" - the pub next door to the castle in Yarmouth? He got done last year for smuggling £8mill worth of heroin! He'd tied it to a bouy in the solent and it was discovered by the coastguard. Think he got 5 years inside! Big news for little Yarmouth at the time!

    Wow i don't recall seeing that one, but what a story. £8mill. Was it supposed to be picked up by someone then? Why didn't he just use a little boat and hop it over to the mainland himself.

    When I was down there at the end of September I was on the phone to coventry and it was p*ss*ng it down. I was in shorts and t-Shirt. I love it down there and if my missus would let me I'd be working in Newport now. My company own Moreys so there is always space for me to transfer.

    I done the 3 Peaks Challenge about 18 years ago (when I ws younger and fitter!!). Snowdon, Scafell and Ben Nevis - all in a week-end. Raised £18,000 for Baby Lifeline at the time. What a killer that was! Still got some pics somewhere.

    Really not gloating DSB. It's just that I've always worked and now, after 45 years, I have retired! And why stay in Cov for the rest of my natural? It's great down here. If anyone is heading here for a break, let me know and we can always meet up for a pint!
