  • Calman: Countdown working fine on my end now.  Can you tweak it to run half way into a race, so I have a chance of earning more than 10 points in the GG? lol

  • Wizzo: Its not a problem Cal, its better than waiting for your pictures to be approved.

  • Calman: Hi Wizzo ... I am trying to understand the system, not change it, so appologise if my attempts to add to the gallery are causing any unessesary stress!
    April 09, 2018, 05:56:12 AM
  • Wizzo: To be honest its a very long time since we had any issues with members photos. I have changed the permissions so that images no longer need admin approval
    April 08, 2018, 03:14:05 PM
  • Calman: Thanks for the info and approval on my 1st photo Wizzo, really appreciate it.  So, who is the best member to contact for photo approval (as I am aware that you mostly appear online over the weekend).

  • Scott: When I do my GG picks, I get a warning that the website is not secure up on the browser address...using Safari.  Anyone else get anything like that?
    April 07, 2018, 09:34:27 PM
  • Wizzo: Yes the gallery does not inform the admin when a new picture is posted so we either have to check everyday or its just easier when you post a picture to let one of us know. Yours has been approved.
    April 07, 2018, 06:56:03 PM
  • Calman: Can anyone shed light on why an image I uploaded to the gallery 24+ hours ago is still pending approval? ... thank you.

  • Calman: Took a HUGE gamble with my Bahrain Race predications, so let's see how crazy a race it may be!

  • Calman: Lovely, will have to think about some predictions for Bahrain in the next few days!!

  • Wizzo: Grid Game countdown all working again. Don't forget your predictions!

  • Yesterday, 26 September, they were putting up Christmas merchandise displays at my local Menards DIY store. It's right beside the Halloween stuff.   :DntKnw:

  • Way way way too early, I can remember when I was a kid my Dad brought the Christmas tree home on Christmas Eve.

  • Yesterday, I heard my first Christmas song in a shop for the year. Which is bad enough... ...but the song was new! What artist/promoter thought early October was a good time to release a new Christmas song?

    (I don't know the artist or song title, but it was cringeworthy in a "adult woman pretending to sing like an off-key 7-year-old, and getting drowned out by over-engineered piano and synthetic cowbell" sense).

    I'll put up my little tree in mid-December. My parents will likely stick to the tradition of not decorating their festive branches until Dad comes home for Christmas. This year, they'll be unusually early because they may start as early as tea-time on December 22nd!  (Last year, we started at 6:58 pm on Christmas Eve due to a broken something-or-other requiring Dad to go back to work for a couple of hours, just as we were about to do the first attempt to decorate).

    Sears Canada might not exist by Christmas, if they can't sell the trees now, they'll never get to sell them

    1) Wow, that surprises me - I thought they were pretty sound as a company :(

    2) Is Sears USA in the same boat?

  • Nearly every big traditional department store is on the verge of bankruptcy, Sears, Penneys, Macy's. Welcome to the world of Amazon. Why drive all the way to the Mall when a couple of clicks brings it to your door and usually cheaper.

  • Sears, and its companion K-Mart, are on the ropes. They've been closing stores all over the place. Sears even sold off its famous Craftsman Tools brand. Many business analysts expect them to go completely under soon.

  • I never buy online, apart from the fact that I like to physically see what I'm buying I'm not happy having my bank details floating about the ether.
