  1. I used to go out with a girl who lived there... but that was 42 years ago..
  2. My daughter has my password and instuctions to post on here should anything happen to me.
  3. Currently looking at sorting my partners broadband out. She tells me she pays £48 per month to BT, she uses whatsapp to text her girls every night and watches youtube maybe twice a month in the evening. She never uses her home phone to make calls so its redundant. I'm sure I can get a better deal than £48!
  4. Late to the party but I;m still around...
  5. Did you ever find one goat?

    Just back from a Prague long weekend, Sat am – Tues pm Just some stuff for anyone considering going Total cost for the 2 of us for 4 days was £186.98 (not including spending money) £22.00 Car parking £71.98 Flights £89.40 Hotel (3 nights) Excellent 4 star hotel 128Czk (4x 32Czk)(£3.60 Return) Tran/Bus Flights were with Easyjet @ £35.99 each from Stansted Depart Saturday 7:10am flight Back Tuesday 8:40pm flight 1.5 hour flight We booked to leave our car at The Kings Arms Hotel (approx. 3.5 miles away from Stansted) – the owner looks after your car in his car park and drives you to the airport and picks you upon your return (we phoned when we had cleared customs and he was their 10 minutes later). You don’t have to stay at the hotel for this service – Cost is £22.00 Kings Arms Hotel - Station Road - Stansted – Essex - CM24 8BE - 01279 812948 **** Hotel was £29.80 per night booked through http://www.onhotels.com/ Breakfast buffet included. Hotel Praga 1 Žitná 5, Praha 1 Tel: +420 222 500 133 Fax: +420 222 500 333 Email: info@hotelpraga1prague.com Web: www.hotelpraga1prague.com It was a great four star hotel with a varied buffet lunch and English speaking staff. Can’t believe how easy it was to get there. Hotel had quoted 525Czk for a taxi from Airport to the hotel. We got a bus/train ticket for 32Czk. Straight out of Arrivals at Prague airport and look to the right for the Travel information kiosk, buy your bus ticket there (remember to buy another for your return journey). Come out of the airport and directly in front of you is the bus stop. Take the no: 100 bus to the bus station at Zličín. The bus terminates here. Walk into the subway (this is the end of the line for the train so it starts from here)and get the Yellow line “B” metro to Karlovo náměstí (10 stops). Come out of the station and walk diagonally left, the hotel is a 5 minute walk away. From the hotel to Wencelas Square and then to Old Town Square was a 10 minute walk, out of the hotel turn right, at the crossroads turn right and follow the road – brings you out halfway up Wencelas Sq. Beer is about £1.40 for a small one and £1.70 for a large, all brewed locally. Food is quiet pricey and Prague has many restaurants, research on trip advisor for the type of food you like to see the better restaurants. We went to a small tavern which was cack and the following day found a nicer restaurant in which our drinks were delivered by miniature train. http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g274707-d1996048-Reviews-Vytopna_Railway_Restaurant-Prague_Bohemia.html Temperatures were around -1 though with the wind chill it seemed colder so wrap up warm. A warm hat is a must. We took £350 in spending money (for food drink and purchases) and brought £180 back though we did spend another £32 on 4 litres of Teachers whiskey at the Duty Free. 4 days was probably 1 day to many, 3 would have been fine. A great weekend – why not give it try.
  11. Nice to see an old face.
  12. Got one but prefer food cooked in the oven - just tastes better IMHO
