    Marco.
    Not sure that's true - a couple of days ago I cycled down to Stoke with a view to buying some JBL speakers Macca was selling. It was a long slog, especially as my mountain bike has chunky tyres. When I got there I found that the speakers were HUGE, and no way could I carry them on my push bike. Macca had no sympathy, saying I should have checked the dimensions before setting off. So I had to cycle back to Chorley empty handed, and with a punctured front tyre.

    Oh hang on, it was a dream. What the bleedin' hell's Macca doing in my dreams? I think this forum's addling me brains.

    By the way, the JBL's sounded awesome.

    That's all complete bollocks except it's true I would have had no sympathy.

    The baffles were that JBL blue, they had eight very big drivers each and were the size of American fridges. I bet your neighbours love you

    Yeah, being "in limbo" has got to be a killer for staff morale.

    I'm going in this morning to but a record to show my support. Nah, I was going in anyway!

    Where'd you get your user name from? Or are you Mr. McMillan of Scottish techno duo Slam?

    was at mam leisure when they(Chrysalis) called time on them. no other reason than it wasnt profitable enough in some regions. they started selling the unprofitable ones and found they liked the cash so closed the whole thing, making loads redundant.
    thats the unmoral side of big business. bastards

    It was a school night, so the only thing I was on was a Tempur mattress

    Next time I go dream-cycling, I'll go to Wrexham instead of Stoke. Y'know, he never even offered me a brew, the tight get.

    Given we have never met your dream is uncannily accurate about me.
