    I forgot to mention - it isn't just us punters that they want to feel valued, it's their staff too - which is why they are sacking a bunch of them. So, that's that then.
  3. Boomtown 2018

    Even though I haven't been before, so don't know the culled areas, that's the way I read it too. If I were to be cynical then I'd say that they are guaranteed a sell out because Glastonbury isn't on, so why put the effort and expense in? Oh, there's me forgetting, one of the reasons is because they want us, the punters, to feel valued. Oh no, I got that wrong - it's because they are stressed out, which is something that they never wanted. Which is why they originally tried to increase the capacity! Oh hold on a minute, something isn't adding up here ...........
  4. Glasto chat

    I gather that this is a Facebook group. As I am not particularly conversant with the workings of Facebook, could somebody please explain to me in a bit more detail what it is that is wrong the site?
  5. Something Else in the Dean 2018

    Thanks Nobody Interesting. It now turns out that something else has cropped up, which means that we are going to have to take time away in Mid to late May now. This means that we no longer have the 'freedom' to take more time off. Oh well, never mind, maybe next year. Thanks once again for the reply though.

    Great news vintage.
  7. Something Else in the Dean 2018

    Hello Nobody Interesting, I've really got to limit the amount of weekends that I take out this summer, as we are proposing to earn some income over the summer months / weekends. Whether that comes to fruition or not, time will tell. However, I looked at Gail's site and saw Hobofest and thought to myself 'that sounds interesting'. The only thing is that I don't know anything about it. Is it similar to Something Else in the Dean, or is there a marked difference?

  9. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Hello crazyfool1, Loving the psychedelic dapper look. And if I'm not mistaken, that hat is pitched at the very optimum of jauntiest angles. A fraction either way and it could have been a fashion disaster. You get my heart felt congratulations. I have no idea who October Drifts are, but they shouldn't feel too put out by this, as one of the first singles that I bought was Sugar Baby Love by The Rubettes, and my musical knowledge hasn't developed much since! I have a question. Are you in some sort of a hotel room, or do you really have a fire exit route sign in your lounge? If it is your lounge then let me tell you I'm well jel of the furniture. I actually have been known to pine when seeing a photo of an antique leather winged backed chair! One more thing, and I don't want to frighten you, but there would appear to be a bloke in a suit of armour over your left hand shoulder. He / she may not know what LED lights are and think you a witch of some nature. Beware - he / she and their mates might have you in the Ducking Stool before you know it. And both you and I know that that'll play havoc with your batteries - and no, no that's not a euphemism! All the best crazyfool1.

    Just looked at the news on this. Although highly qualified, the doctor is not a psychiatrist! Not that I rate them especially. Well, the ones that I've seen anyway!
  11. General News Discussion

    A crisis (from the Greek κρίσις - krisis;[1] plural: "crises"; adjectival form: "critical") is any event that is going (or is expected) to lead to an unstable and dangerous situation affecting an individual, group, community, or whole society. I'd say that it was a crisis, going by the above definition of a crisis - and possibly any other definition that you can find 'out there'. Individuals - The direct employees, the owners of the suppliers, the owners of the sub contractors will all be negatively affected, and many to what I would consider crisis point. Workers will not be able to pay their rent / mortgages, will lose a lot of their pension money etc Groups - as just stayed there will be companies that will go bankrupt because of this. This may in turn cause the owners to lose their homes, companies they have worked hard to build up, etc Stress will occur / relationships may fall apart etc Communities - Half finisjed projects will blight the landscape, half finished projects like the Smethwick hospital will affect service delivery etc Society - We as a society will pay dearly to mop up this mess. Believe me, the contractors that the Government / NHS / Railtrack etc will now have to almost beg to mop up the mess are going to stick the boot right in in terms of what they'll charge etc It may not be a crisis for you, but for many it will be.

    Well found guy. Talking of finding things, I finally found your calendar this evening. I haven't looked at all the months, as I want to see them as they arrive. I do like January's though.

    Hello whisty, I've ran out of up votes. That's a beautiful looking vehicle. Looks nothing like the three un-marked police cars that hemmed my car in once after I'd just scored some dope though. If I'd have seen three of the above cars coming at me, I'd have had time to eat the stuff!
  14. Something Else in the Dean 2018

    Hello grumpy, You'll never guess what? Me and the misses decided that we would 'go for it', as it may be the last year that they can hold it at The Elton Mazes. So, about 10 minutes ago I booked two tickets, and got the ticket confirmation email straight away. When I went to put that email / ticket in my Something Else in the Dean folder on the computer (for I have such a thing) I discovered that I already bought two tickets for this years festival last October - Doh! What a plonker! I've emailed another friend who is going to see if he wants me to hold on to the two extra tickets, or whether I should contact Gail to see if I can get two of the four tickets that I have put back in to the pot. He has suggested that I hold on to them, so will do so for now. So grumpy, it does look like I'll be going to the ball, after all (forgive the rhyme!). And one more thing, I'd be delighted to hook up with you at your caravan for a couple of drinks and a chat. Then you can come to our campervan for a couple of drinks and a chat. Then we can go in to the festival area, for a couple of drinks and a chat! Seriously though, I do look forward to meeting you (and your caravan!).We've talked for long enough on here, so it would be good to meet up in person.

    We've probably all seen this video before, but sometimes it's good to get a reminder of the need for equality;
  16. Something Else in the Dean 2018

    Thanks for the information Nobody Interesting. I've been torn about whether to get tickets for this or not. In fact, I'm still torn. Going to have to make my mind up soon though, before tickets run out.
  17. What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    I hope you've got lots of money. My stepson has just come back from Dublin and informs me that he was having to pay 6.60 Euros for a pint!!! I don't know how they can afford to get pissed over there, but they do!
  18. Boomtown 2018

    Hello Ben, Point taken. If her indoors says that she doesn't want to go, I still intend to go on my own. It's the only festival that we have booked for this year, so I am really looking forward to it. However, we have failed to get to Bearded Theory (despite having tickets - including campervan ticket) before, as well as my shoddy non show at Glastonbury last year. Oh, and another time at Something Else in the Dean! There's been other, non festival, events that we've bought tickets for and not gone. It really raises my blood pressure when we squander money like that. So, this time I am more determined for this not to happen. On top of that it looks like there's a fair few efesters going, and it would be good to hook up with them. However, it aint over until the fat lady sings. I am now going to say a prayer to the little baby Jesus, asking him to help with my blood pressure situation on this one.
  19. Boomtown 2018

    Same here. The not knowing anything about the place and in which direction to travel will add to the fun.
  20. What is something that festival go-ers are missing?

    That's a fantastic suggestion. What's not to like about getting gentle warm cuddles from a panda?
  21. What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    Apologies vintagelaureate - I have mentioned the reason for my not going before. I don't really like to mention it because it's all a little embarrassing. I still owe you a few drinks on that front, so hopefully will see you in a festival field somewhere so can do the honours. I said log cabin, when a better description would be a timber cabin. It doesn't have the log effect. It is double glazed and has a roof light as well as a solid fuel burner. It actually looks (or will look) like this when re-constructed;

  23. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Will be keeping my fingers crossed for your little one and your family vintagelaureate. Christ, the stress you must be under is no doubt immense, especially as you have to work too. You are all in my thoughts.
  24. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    That would be true, up until recently. I've kind of taken my foot off the accelerator a little. I'm not drinking as much as I used to, and I've lost the bloody dope. Still on speed daily, but that doesn't get you off your box. To be honest I've got loads of stuff to do, and being spannered isn't going to help the situation.
