Re: CAT IN URGENT NEED OF HELP

This has to be the first topic requiring an update, the last animal mentioned is now safely with us and will have is own place in "Welcome to Cat World" What comes next is truly urgent and we have little time left in order to get it sorted, under two weeks. This concerns two Tortoiseshell six year o...

Re: MAY I RE ENTER THE FOLD?

Sanity in whatever degree returns. Stanley, that was not intended as a criticism, merely an observation. Barnoldswick Talk, much like this site was intended to be for the good of the Town in general, there are many good people who use it to get their messages across, and promote their work for they ...

MAY I RE ENTER THE FOLD?

Having looked at all possible alternatives to this site, and after much consideration, I am asking if I may return. I am still working with local issues, Heritage projects and animal welfare being just two. The alternatives to this site do not at present a stable platform for either of these, althou...

That's it then, I am biased, racist, egocentric and have no idea whatsoever about politics, only my own opinions. Fine, I bow to the superior knowledge of the members and bid you all farewell.

Re: WELCOME TO CAT WORLD.

This should go in the other topic "Cat in need of help" but I think that it is better here. The Cat in question is the one at Silentnight. Despite all of the aid now in place, the faceless ones at that factory are still using pressure, this is how it is at present:- On Monday next week the Cat will ...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

Despite the Stirling efforts of local people to put Barlick well and truly back on the map, there are areas where we become less important, and if necessary where the axe falls first, I believe that we are still regarded by some as being of little importance when compared to the larger towns nearby....

If I was ever going to have the chance to sit down and have a chat with a world leader, without all of the usual protocols etc, it would have to be Putin.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

It appears that the last information was possibly correct, and whilst there does not seem to be a terrorist connection, this has happened as an indirect result of 9/11 and other events. There was a time when small groups, usually children, may be allowed to visit the flight deck, this all ended long...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

I have just been having a look at the aircrew requirements for the Airbus A320 in regard to the flight deck. Modern technology changed the number of flight deck crew from 3 to 2, with the advent of “fly by wire” and “glass” instrumentation, removing the need for a flight engineer. This applies to th...

If these people want to be accepted and welcomed, then they should p...

Re: CAT IN URGENT NEED OF HELP

The temporary accommodation has been cleaned and prepared, all is ready. New Igloo bed, litter tray, food and water dishes. What we truly need now is a kind hearted person who needs a small companion. Support can be given to such a person if required.

I'm sending in the troops. Beef casserole made with lean stewing steak, new potatoes, carrot medallions, finely chopped onion, rich dark soy sauce, an oxo cube, red wine and bisto, and dumplings made with plain flour, shredded suet, and grated mature cheddar cheese.

Re: CAT IN URGENT NEED OF HELP

The lady who is currently looking after this poor animals welfare has just been to see us. The possible future owner has backed down. The cat will now be examined by the Vets at the carers expense and then brought here into temporary accommodation. What happens next depends on someone with a generou...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

It appears to me that giving a vote to someone unproven, yet apparently able to promise anything that could be popular to a portion of the electorate, may result in a big step backwards. Its all very well to vote on principle as many did in the last century. The unions have played their part over ti...

Re: CAT IN URGENT NEED OF HELP

Things are now looking better for this poor little cat, the pressure for removal from where it is has dropped. It has been seen and treated by a Vet, and now just needs a new home where it will be loved and cared for. If this does not happen soon, we can arrange for it to come here into what we have...

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

There are times when it is more beneficial to eat a small amount of what one would really like, than having what is supposedly good for you. If you are not truly hungry, wait until you are, and then indulge in moderation. I have never subscribed to "its dinner time, you must eat". Eat when it is des...

Sadly this last attempt to help had to be abandoned, see Cats World. Now there is another one, even more desperate. It may have jumped ship near Silentnight, and that's where it is now. It is being cared for by an employee and needs attention fast. The management want it out of there ASAP, further d...
