Re: Bricklayers fred innit

I’m fed up about hearing about the ‘poor’ NHS workers. The vast majority of them never get close to a covid patient. The supermarket workers are probably taking more of a risk that most of them. I’m over ten grand out of pocket from this time last year, and that’s including the self employed payment...

If you’ve had consistent money paid into your bank then you may not get it.

Some time in August. Not sure of a proper date yet. It’s 70% this time.

Re: Bricklayers fred innit

I’m all good. :thumbs Bitting and bobbing work wise and enjoying it. I’m not looking for any site work until at least August. I want to get the next payment of free money without earning too much to jeopardize that! Doing work at a livery at the moment. I was only there to build a dwarf radius wall ...

Re: Chess Chat

I’d hope future games are 10-8 or 10-9. I kind of feel they are where we are at in terms of ability against each other. Early on you were 1/2 in terms of odds for winning each game. It’s probably 10/11 each of us now. You have me on my back foot fairly early in most games. For some reason you’re not...

Re: Chess Chat

The H-Man should be in hospital ........He’s took one hell of a beating this week!! :) I’ve took a 9-4 lead in the fourth series and am hovering around the 1.02 mark to win my first ever race to ten. Not only has H helped me to improve my game, he’s also letting me win matches that he’s totally domi...

Re: Bricklayers fred innit

I still don’t know anyone who’s had it. A few people have told me they ‘thought’ they’d had it. A few of them were tested and came back as negative.

Excuse my terminology, but it’s Paki land where it all is. The local mayor has blamed it on the language barrier! :lol

Re: Bricklayers fred innit

No. The boundary is about five or six miles from me. There’ll be plenty coming over to our pubs on Saturday I’d expect! Some local pubs will only serve people if they have proof of address. 8] Most will just cream it I’d have thought. If you haven’t sold a pint in three months then your takings will...

Re: Chess Chat

Yeah a real person. I’ve got a rating on there and they match people with a similar rating to you. Mine’s obviously far too high because the people I’ve played are well beyond me.

Re: Chess Chat

I’ve just had two games on chess24 against random opponents. They both beat me within three minutes. *,

I think we’re at the very bottom of the chess ladder!

Having said that, I think I might have won from nowhere when you had your own king boxed in?

Re: Chess Chat

I can’t remember the ins and outs of the match. I know I didn’t have much of a chance at one stage, but somehow won it. You may be right. Think it was possibly our first series.

Re: Chess Chat

I can imagine. Feels like a win to you and a loss to me.

I do remember winning one game against you where I was so far behind, but somehow won it. It felt like it should’ve been worth two points (which it theoretically was I suppose).

Re: Chess Chat

I think I’m happy to update the score today!

H won the third series 10.5-7.5, giving me my best score to date.

But......I have took a two-nil lead in the fourth series after a couple of (rare) lackluster performances from the H-Man!

Re: Shoot at a (Puntersmate) Star you may hit one

It’s a shame one more couldn’t have placed. A cracking start to the bet though and gave you a bit of excitement.

Re: Bricklayers fred innit

I’d never heard of them either. Having had a quick look there’s one in Derby and one in Leicester and they look good. Every single doner kebab taste exactly the same now. Twenty years ago they’d be carving big chunks of meat off the skewer, and it’d be slightly crispy on the outer layer. These days ...
