I am sorry you have taken offence. I am afraid it is not quite as easy for me to just jump up and fly over, you see I am 75% disabled and rely on my wife for much. Unfortunately with no living relations and no one to care for me it would be very difficult at this time for us to go on holiday leaving...

Watersports

Watersports in Crete? Mrs Muttly is just about to engage some consultation with a watersports importer/exporter to the UK who has new branches in Portugal, Spain and France. What are the main watersports in Crete. I have read of what is supposedly there but local knowledge is far more to the point!

I was 14 and on holiday with my family in Malta staying at the Hilton of all places. Left to get on on my own like any teenager I was up to breakfast late. However being a US owned hotel it was a US style breakfast. Bacon/ham, eggs, waffles, syrup, coffee youname it with various breads etc. Sometime...

I saw Jim Davidson when he was at his worst in 1974 at my girlfreinds fathers Christmas do. Doing all the "my mate chalky stuff" I then kneed him in the nuts at the Scotland v England football match at Wembley the year that the Scots tore down the posts. 2 or 3 years later. I then was a re...

I'd keep off the butter beans if I were you, that and a few beers will put you up there with whole herds of the damn things.

We'd love to but Mrs Muttly and me are the only British Citizens they are actually going to deport. So we got to end up somewhere!

Yes one time LAS senior officers were rather keen on deploying an Ambulance Boat between the Bridges working out of Waterloo Pier, but the whole idea got binned when it was realised that as well intentioned as the officer was, he was nicking half our job, his men never paid for a round and couldn't ...

A colleague of mine claimed to have seen the ball of string trick but I was never sure. He also claimed that on one occasion he was doing the usual blurb on the intercom and mentioned that they were flying over Ben Nevis but it couldn’t be seen for low cloud. He then paused for a few seconds, said ...

Now I get it......The flight is probably an Air Malta aircraft sub-chartered to Uk Tour ops eg Olympic, Libra and Sky hols, but operated by XL. If so then you cannot book on air malta site as is not theirs to sell. Plus is a weekly charter and not daily. The 37 pounds fare for 30/10 is again probab...

The (bi)cycle is much bigger than you suggest. At the end of the middle ages (1450's) the earth was much warmer than it is now and Greenland was productive farmland. 2,000 years ago the Romans had vineyards in Cumbria, and they had no cars or aeroplanes to blame! And your evidence that this was due...

Foreign Nationals - Local Knowledge

According to some of the litrature I have been reading the tourists using Crete for holidays are mainly Germans, Scandanavians and British in that order. Funnily enough that is no change from the 1970 and 80's where the people I met fell very much into those catagories. Many Germans had large carava...

I'd love to know how sunspot activity is causing the change in global temperature? Sunspot activity varies in an 11-year cycle and has done for a very long time. Strictly speaking it is a 22-year cycle since the suns magnetic field reverses on alternate cycles but this doesn't have a significant ef...

Flown many times from Glasgow to Benbecula on Viscounts back in the 60s and 70s. Captain Black was famous on this and other internal UK routes for playing pranks. Never experienced any myself but plenty of stories from other flyers. Warwick There is a few. I'm sure it was he that took exception to ...
