Re: PRESALE TO UK CONCERTS

Hi Hydriot I have a seating plan right here. Block C, row E seat 47 is 5th row, right on the centre aisle so it's a great seat! Thanks for this, Wendy. I bought the seat on offer in the final hours of the pre-sale. "Block C, E47" sounds unprepossessing, but, as you say Block C is a front block, sta...

Re: PRESALE TO UK CONCERTS

Can someone please give me a link to the Bournemouth International Centre's seating plan? All the system will offer me is Block C, Seat E47 again and again and again, however often I tell it to search again, and without once showing me where that seat is.

Re: The Hydra Meetup 2013

Overnight, the fire did not spread (windless night thank goodness) and was fully extinguished by the following morning. No more aircraft. Today, there is nothing untoward visible from the port. I walked to Episcopi, in the far southwest, on Saturday from where you can see all the south coast up to C...

Re: The Hydra Meetup 2013

The island is on fire ... again. Fortunately, it does not look as serious as the last devastating one a few years ago. We were turned back from approaching the Miramare at Mandraki about lunch-time as the hotel was in danger. (As usual it looks like it began at the city dump above the hotel). For th...

Re: The simple grandeur of Hydra

The island in the background is Dokos. Supposedly it looks like a whale, but to me it has always been a beautiful lady reclining on her side.

Re: The Hydra Meetup 2013

I am on Hydra now, so if anyone needs anything checked, just ask, though I am on-line only once or twice a week. For hikers, the paths are now marked with lots of little yellow signs, even to Zourva and Bisti. Temperature has been cloudless 28+ degrees, weather now changeable 21 - 26 degrees. Easter...

Re: The Hydra Meetup 2013

The thing to be aware is that if you miss the departure (flight delay etc) they will not give you a refund, so you need to balance one prospect against the other. hydriot, Two years ago, when I booked directly with them in advance, I did so as a 'senior'. I don't remember if there was a charge, but...

Re: Wanted: Your opinions on the LC Forum for PhD Thesis

Sorry to spoil the party-feeling on this thread, but I would like to express a contrary view. Having done this poll (and, yes, only once), I have very real doubts that any conclusions of value can come from it. From where I stand, its methodology is deeply flawed. To have any validity at all, a stud...

Re: hello

Yes, there are many many Britons here. You can spot us easily: we are the ones who know how to spell English correctly -- 'colour' not 'color', 'aluminium' not 'aluminum', 'sulphur' not 'sulfur', etc etc :wink:

Re: Dress rehearsal rag

Somewhere on this forum you will find an extended debate on this one word, which we had several years ago. Here in the UK, one meaning of a 'rag' can be a prank, a practical joke. Each year, universities hold Rag Weeks, defined by the COD as "a programme of entertainments organised by students to ra...

I am getting by and up to speed where it concerns old LC - 78 and still touring for the money Miss Kelley stole from him. Has she ever paid up? What's the latest here? I am sure since 2008 Leonard has earned much more than was lost to Kelley Lynch. What she took I doubt will ever be found: I imagin...
