Got any more pics houch?
I've got hundreds Rich. Every time I leave the house I take me camera! I'll select some nice ones and bang them on here.....
There's a few on my website ............... http://www.wix.com/bazadams/isle-of-wight-pictures#!
I'll find some more for you aswell.
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.
Did you manage to find many nice pics around Cov then Houch?
I've got some great old pics of Cov. I'll find them out aswell. Meanwhile........
Here's me a couple of months ago, freezing my nuts off on a stroll along Totland front!
Site looks good. I always struggle to find good photographs around here.
Feel free to put the pic of my dog on your site. It was taken at the spyglass, ventnor.
Need a pic of him in this "POST" part, Rich. I'll stick it on here aswell.

Rich. Took these this morning (Sun 17th Ap). Went into Yarmouth for a stroll around with the missus. You should recognise them!
Looking Good. Harbour Lights thats the Cafe. The sun always shines in Yarmouth.
It's red hot here again today My missus moans coz I have a permanent suntan!
I'm off fishing from the peir tomorrow. Can't wait!
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.
Moreys the builders in Medina Ave, Newport?
You should get a transfer down here Rich! You'd love it! The winters a bit shite though - everything closes!
Moreys Builders Merchants in Newport. I'd love to move down there, but the other half won't go.
Scafell Pike 2010
Look's nice up there rich, done a few walks myself yorkshire and the like.
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.

My local beach today....
Smooth-hound shark caught from the pier!
It all looks very nice hh. Its fair to say i'm a tad envious.
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!
Will do hh, mind you we have some lovely scenery up here in the dales, gonna have to get my camera out as well.

2-1 Loss I think! :(
I know there are a few cyclists on here, so thought we could have a thread for all things cycling.
My first question, however, is actually about...
I know there are a handful of avid followers on here, this isnt another "who watches NFL in the UK" thread, we have enough of those and no doubt...
Can't see a thread anywhere.
