  4. Hi all, I have been looking through images of world war one art on this here internet thing and I came across a painting at the Imperial War Museum titled 'The NCO Pilot RFC(Flight Sergeant W. G. Bennett)' gifted by the artist William Orpen in 1918. I don't have a great deal of resources to search apart from the internet and I have been unable to find any information at all on Flight Sergeant Bennett. I am hoping that someone out there has the resources or knows where to look to find out about this chap. Thanks in advance Marty

    The problem with allowing for their use on the 5th in anything but controlled and licensed displays is that that means they are available for sale prior to that time and, in a country where law enforcement is spread thin and underfunded, a certain section of the populace would have no fear of repercussions from using them and this is the self same section of the populace who will use them to annoy neighbours, terrify the elderly and cause as much mayhem as they possibly can.

    I signed the petition some days back. I see no good reason for fireworks as Guy Fawkes night is a tradition that is long out of date and I don't think many people nowadays can claim to observe 'Oidhche Shawna' or Samhain and, even if they did, that would be the 31st Oct/1st November and wouldn't include fireworks, only bonfires. It is pointless, a total waste of money and an excuse to be anti-social. I am guessing that many people take advantage of the availability of fireworks specifically to annoy their neighbours.

    hanging on the nail (I actually remember going into a schoolmates house and his bathroom was wallpapered with newspapers and the toilet paper was neatly cut squares of daily record on a nail in the wall. You can tell I had some real sophisticated friends ?8^) I also thought his carpets were some weird raffia type exotic numbers but, years later I spoke to a fellow whose family bought the house when they moved (Oh yes it was a privately owned, fairly large house) and he told me that all the carpets were actually filthy old numbers which had been re-fitted upside down so that exotic weave was actually the underside of the carpets.)

    For those wondering a 'Pinnie' is simply a Pinnafore overall typically worn by Char ladies, Dinner Ladies and large hairy Scotsmen (gotta keep the crums off my kilt and they're murder if they get into your sporran). There are definitely some odd advertising placements. A few times recently my wife has been watching late evening paranormal show and the breaks have contained adverts for the 'Nick' TV children's channel. I doubt that many children of an age, or diminished mentality to watch that channel would be watching the paranormal shows. As to the Sex toys adverts I would ban those ads as I hate them, even if only for the annoying nasally voiceover. Sexy it ain't and the ad is just sleazy.

    Well I am a stay at home bloke too. My wife is disabled and I am chief cook, chauffeur, housemaid and nurse. I'm not very good at it though and the wife is always grousing about the quality of the work. The job is hard, 24/7 -365 and anyone who laughs at me finds out just how tough a bloke in a pinnie can be! I have to say that I enjoy 'working in home' as I am not a 'people person' - My anthem is the Anti Nowhere Leagues "I Hate People" and, when I worked in the wider world I frequently had to restrain myself from 'going Postal'.
