    As usual a homely and enjoyable pocast guys I look forward to it each week including "pram news update special"....s**t what a sad life I lead. :rolleyes:

    Anyway the piece about "the bogs" reminded me about a situation that happened to me some time ago, so if I may I will elucidate.

    My parents-in-law live in Leeds and when we go up to see them for a few days they always take us to a restaurant called "Murgatroyds", the main speciality is fish & chips and they are located in the Yeadon area of Leeds. They are in a way a smaller version of "Harry Ramsdens" anyway I digress somewhat.

    I was in need after my main course of some light relief, so to speak, so I visited the toilets to have a pee. After completing the "call of nature" I flushed the appliance only to be met with a groaning / grinding sound as if someone was 'aving a problem and then seeing a unit going around the bowl self cleaning it with (by then) a musical accompaniment. I had such a fright I almost cr***ed myself and I only went in there for a wee wee.

    So you see Steve you don't have to go to Japan (collective moan) to see modern lavatorial technology in action. I believe these wonders of bog self cleaning marvels have now been removed since my last visit. This is possibly due to the fact that (1) there are quite a few coach parties that arrive here with our erstwhile more mature members of society, and there is a very good chance that the process of the self cleaning action with the sound of electronic / mechanical moaning and grinding, plus music eminating from around the cubicle might well kill them. :devil: Or (2) it could well be that they were giving too many technical problems, either way it certainly nearly made me c**p myself and i'm only 61.

    Anyway for those interested in a nice fish & chip meal and your in the area (other food is avaliable) I have pasted their website below.

    By the way I only counted three beeps, so not up to your usual standards then....we demand more. :lesson:
    ==========================================================
    As an addendum, on my last visit wifey ordered the senior citizens meal for me (although wifey wanted it because the amount of food was less than the regular one) and the b******d waiter didn't even flinch and say "surely not for this gentleman madam, he can't be 60 or over he looks too young"....I DON'T LOOK 60+. Wifey thought this was most amusing....I didn't. :( Wifey by the way is 9 years younger than me and also doesn't look her age. :devil:

    Steve, you mentioned there is no anamorphic DVD of True Lies? I have the region 4 un-cut version and its anamorphic! Please don't take this as a smug post - I just wonder whether I have a rarity in my collection?!?!

    Thanks Drumbeeter, I didn't realise there was an anamorphic Region 4 DVD, I was only aware of the Region 1 and 2 versions. To be honest I hardly ever watch DVDs these days but I'm looking forward to both The Abyss and True Lies hitting Blu-ray next year.

    I agree... As much as I love the film, my region 1 non-anamorphic region 1 DVD of The Abyss is shelved forever since HD came along! Roll on next year!
