Now then chaps. Since this is perhaps the geeks version of doing a car up, see if you can make some sense of this article Mr P. W. Heaney.
I'm positive the site can have a musical background, that would be a cool feature. And of course Lily and her "impressive baps" as Pete so eloquently put it is on hand with thumbnail tips. Though why we want a manicure is beyond me. Ho-ho!
What would our regular readers think to a template change? You know where to comment.
So I've decided to take up Beatlism as my new religion, all makes perfect sense to me. There are some strange people about isn't there.
Smashed my head with my car door tonight. Actually took me a minute to regain where I was and who I was! Nearly knocked me out. Right in the wars this past few days after me run in with the Truck doors yesterday (a truck door hit me in the back at very high speed). First one to complete Roadies gets a free drink on the rich man - me. Cheers for the £80 Mr Groves. I like a man who pays his debts.

So I played footy last night.
It amounted to me nearly getting crippled by an onrushing goal keeper, letting a throw in go through my legs, nutmegging a bald fella and taking 2 of the worst corners in western europe.
Came off at half time to be replaced by what appeared to be Shaun Ryder's skinny brother.

In CDT (Craft Design and Technology for all you acronym freaks out there) once upon a time, I saw a belt sander majestically soar off a workbench and leave a 2 metre long trail as smooth as a babies arse on the newly varnished floor. It would still be going now but for the inadequacies of the power cable.
It sort of resembled one of those weird programmable tank things you could get years ago.
Hilarity prevailed. Or did it? Or DID it? OR DID IT?

Tonights the night........No seriously, I havce consumed 7 pints of Stella Artois, which is strong lager, am I entitled to more than 2 Units a pint, considering its stella??
If not I have had 14 units so far this week!
What have you Kids Bellies had??

Will Peter be able to move again after his magnificent effort for Brian "I'm blind in one eye, but I still play in goal" Millers football team this evening? I seriously doubt it but full marks for being bold enough to get down there and give it some on the astroturf. Oooh, matron.
Keith secured 14 units on the Drinks-o-meter tonight. Does he score bonus points for it being on a school night?
7 pints of Stella Artois. The lads liver must be knocking 50 year old now.
Been wracking me brains for school memoirs that featured the big guy KG himself. I need them e-mails...tell me you still have them?! Glad the Soldering Iron story amused you. I've got the true classics safely etched in my mind forever. I'm sure Pete's got a shedload of school memoirs we've never heard.
The Burnley Wallet phenomenon steadily grows, the word is spreading, from Milwaulkee to Florida and even to Billingham (asked a lad at work to have a look the other day, he had nowt but good things to say).

So Mikey as best man, where are we gunna hold the Stag weekend to end all stag weekends?? This will ROCK!!!!
No doubt it will be truly awesome!
So after work today I decided to go for a couple of pints of Stella, well a few turned into about 7!
A wish the hog's Head didn't produce such fine STELLA!
Can't believe its only Tuesday, that's 3 days until were off, but hopefully a Blackpool reunion this weekend!
Pete Playing football..........AGAIN...........I hope the ambulance is on stand by!
Mikey blowing up the soldiering Iron..........That was so funny....No doubt over the weeks and months ahead there will be numerous school memories that will be mentioned.
I have an admirer who was scared of that scary optical illusion...........Or well one born every day!

Well, I've run out of things to blog! How about a classic school memoir?
Way back in second year at the tender age of 12, myself and Keith , fellow Blogee, were taught the intracacies of soldering wires to other wires and microchips etc. Well away we went. Prone to silliness at times we kind of let the rules slip and after about my third or fourth failed attempt I decided the put the iron down on the desk rather than its spring holster to save a bit of time.
Anyway about two minutes elapsed before a huge bang and flash of light sent me and Keith flying!
The teacher ran over, Mr Riley, a true Maccum, "Wor Michael, whats going on son, ya alreet?"
"Yeah, yeah I'm fine."
"Well were just soldering this and it just...went...pop!"
Apparently, having left the iron on the desk, a fact kept well out of Mr Rileys reach, it melted through the wire casing and hit the live bit, scaring the shit out of me and Keith!
Eeeeh, those were the days. I get the feeling Keith might laugh a bit at this.

I regret to inform you but the fish bought for me as a "silly" present on my 16th birthday all those five years ago has sadly died. I'm not too sure what it was called but it hasn't lasted as long as Itchy and Scratchy the two goldfish who are still alive and kicking and managed to do enough to earn themselves names.
Having asked my mother what his name was, and I'm not sure if this was just agreed because it was the only thing I could think of, apparently it was called Casper, because it was a ghost fish. How original.
Casper began life at Dogsbody's, Estons premier pet shop. In fact its only pet shop. Bought as a joke, he spent his life in a 15 x 8 x 8 inch tank in the corner of the dining room, spending most of his time deciding whether to swim left or to swim right or two attack the other two fish and then forgetting it just a moment later. He'd seen all kinds of stones, weeds and even a little porcelain tower and every 3 months or so he'd go on holiday to the kitchen sink so his home could be cleaned out.
His heart was broken when he realised the love he once received had been been passed on to the latest acquisition of Goldie, the canary and as today has proved, he never got over that moment.
Gone but not forgotten, rest in peace Casper.

In a fit of foolishness, I drunkenly agreed to resurrect my shambolic football career.
In a haze of Redbull, I remember telling somone that I was a 'midfield general'. I haven't kicked a ball in anger for at least 7 months, and don't exactly eat salad a lot.
However, I can still lug my considerable frame around for a bit, I don't think it's a question of being thin. Take Steven Hawking for example. Built like a washing line, but totally shit at footy. I reckon I could take him at most sports, except maybe wheelchair races. But that's only assuming he can't put a turbo on his chair.
But I'd never beat that big fat geezer at darts. He's mint.
So there you go. Try being skinny and athletic if you must, but I like to eat food and have a stomach the size of West Yorkshire. I might die ten years before those healthy eaters, but I won't have to worry about Alzheimers will I?

My Drinks-o-meter total for the wedding I attended, which believe it or not was £2.75 a pint. £3.50 for a Smirnoff Ice, was 20 units of lager and 12 units of Smirnoff Ice.
A grand total of 32 units. Are we going to do weekly tables or will that just encourage Grovesy into becoming a fully blown alcoholic?

Walleted by Mike Heaney on 6/27/2004 02:12:00 pm
Well. What can I say.
First, official Burnley Wallet congrats to Tony and Debbie Lane for tying the knot. May they have many happy years together.
Right. The beer total. I think we should go on a scale of units:
1 pint Lager/Beer = 2 units
1 Glass of Wine = 2 Units
1 Alcopop = 1 and a half Units
Single spirit = 1 unit.
So a double vodka redbull is the same as a pint. Comment if you disagree, but this is the medical way of doing it.
I had (I think):
2 Pints of Lager = 4 units
5(ish) single Vodka Redbulls = 5 units
4(ish) double Vodka Redbulls = 8 units
1 Complementary Whisky chaser = 1 unit
Then went home for an hour, had a glass of coca cola and a ham sarnie.
Went back to the party. Only me there. Texted dickfingers to sort his ass out, and drank from then:
4 Smirnoff ice = 6 units
Another 5 or so double Vodka Redbull = 10 units.
So we're talking 34 units +/- 3 to be totally sci-fi about it all.
The healthy limit for a week is 28. To be consumed in a week. NOT ONE DAY!
Walleted by Peter Heaney on 6/27/2004 01:41:00 pm
This is the run down of Tony and Debbie Lanes, Wedding night do thingy.
It was held in "The New Whale Hill social Club" where the lager was very nice and at a well low price of £1.70.
After getting a text from pierre saying get yaself out man, i decided to go, afterall I did go to his Stag weekend, as mentioned in previous posts.
Got there at around 7.15pm, to find most of the group well pissed!
Gotta say Pete, Joanne was well gone!
Had a couple of games of pool, with Pete, Russ and Stevie, I was on fire, altho I was the only sober one!
After Pool, mingled with the group, then Totsy arrived, he looked as tho he had been attacked by a stapler, apparantly he fell over and smashed his head on the kitchen work top! OUCH!!!! Split his head right open.
Peter then decided to baffle us with his now infamous Foster beer mat trick! Still not sure how this works!
After this all the lads decided to invade the dance floor, we were in a circle (which I have renamed the "Circle of Death") we then took it in turns to do our own little individual dance in the middle of the aforementioned circle. Note: I made a fool of myself with my sheer lack of dancing ability.
After all that exercise i was knackered so we all sat back down, when the whiskey came round, after knocking back 2, i felt sick (no change there then lads eh?) so i went to the toilet, altho i DIDN'T spew. When coming out of the toilet a mole kindly informed me that my drink had been vicously spiked with about 5 Whiskey's!
Oh well you only live once.
Starts to get a bit hazy around this time, think we left the club about 11.30pm, when we were outisde a rendition of E-I-O burst out between me, Tom , and Stevie!
Great night had by all.
Cant wait to read Pete's, he was there all day!!!!

McClaren buys a new Kosovan striker to help the smoggies reach safety in the league. It turns out that his debut is against United in the FA Cup. The lad plays and scores a hat trick and after the game runs to the dressing room to phone his mum.
"Mam, mam, I LOVE it here ! I scored a hat trick against United, the crowd were cheering my name, everyone loves me, it's great !!!"
She replies "Well I'm glad you're f*****g happy. Do you realise your sister's been raped, you're Dad's been shot, and the house has been burnt down, and it's all your fault!"

Well its almost 24hrs after the final whistle, I've eventually calmed down after 7 pints of stella. (i had to take half a day to get over the dissapointment).
So close yet so far.
We were robbed, everyone in the club was jumping up and down when Sol Campbell scored it wasn't until a good 45 seconds after he had scored did we realised it had been disallowed.
So 2-2 after extra time, the dreaded penalty shoot out, I text Mikey saying "Memories of France 98 Here, i told him to tell me to shut up and fuck off, he did". But to no avail.
Beaten on pennas yet again, how many times is this??
How shit was our so called captain??
Why didnt Vassell score??
Its all ifs and buts but it still hurts!
We had a great tournament, Campbell showed he is the best centre half in the world, Ashley Cole was Awesome, Frank Lampard keeps getting better and better, and Wayne Rooney well what can we say he lit up Euro 2004 for me, the lad is only 18, he is World class!
So another tournament and another disappointment, we should be used to it being England fans but it still hurts!

By the way KG, you saw To Kill a Mockingbird over several months whilst in English at Senior school.
Il buono, il bruto, il cattivo is The Good, the Bad and the Ugly starring Clint. Great film. And C'era un volta il West is Once Upon a Time in the West....another classic but not as good as the former. Now Once Upon a Time in America...don't get me starte don that...what the hell does the ending mean? After 3 hours I couldn't take anymore!

Here's some films from my collection that never made it (please correct me if I missed them)..
Catch Me if you Can
Clear and Present Danger
Enter the Dragon
How can't these films be in there? They are all superb. They have to be close to the top 250, especially Deliverance, Enter the Dragon and Scarface. How did Pirates of the Carribean get in ahead of any of the films listed above?

Three rats in a pub, had a few pints, and anyway they get on to talking about how tough each one of them is.
The first rat pipes up, "Now then lads, I was down in the pipework last night having a mooch about when I saw this great big piece of rat poison in the corner. I felt a bit peckish so I fucking ate it straight down. Got up this morning, shat it out whole, I feel great."
The second rat interrupts, "Thats bollocks, rat poison is part of every tough rats staple diet. Last week, I was in the kitchen and I spies a big lump of cheese on a trap. I walks over, takes a bite and WHAM! The trap swung over. But, me being me, the metal simply simply bent around my spine. I ate the cheese, lifted the trap off and went to bed."

As if the story of Freja Svea coming aground Redcar wasn't interesting enough boyos. Just reading this little snippet. This was the day before it got stuck on the rocks.
"The crew of the Hartlepool Lifeboat, (The Scout, 44-018) must have been very thankful when their Waveney successfully self-righted itself after twice capsizing while on service to the tanker Freja Svea on the 28th February 1993.
Crew member, Robert Maiden, was washed overboard during the first capsize and spent 35 minutes in the water before being picked up safely by a RAF helicopter. Otherwise the crew only suffered some minor injuries.
The lifeboat did sustain some damage mainly to its communications, though it was structurally intact and seaworthy."
Oh and before you start singing it...here's the true lyrics...
Down on the beach on 1st of March in Ninety Three
I got some news for you man there’s something in the sea
The kids are there but Mum don’t mind
They’ll remember this for all their time
There’s a ship stuck on the rocks
Down in Redcar Bay
To see it with your own two eyes
Will take your breath away
There’s a ship stuck on the rocks
Surrounded by the grey
They call her Freja Svea
On her way back to set sail, but she’s been lead astray
We read the papers, see the news and don’t know what to say
The black and red in the midnight sky

I suggest we ban all talk of Teddy R (Didn't he used to manage Doom in WCW?) from now on. I'm starting to do my own head in. Its Tommy Dickfingers all the way now.

What were the inventors of Ruxpin on? Have you read the What Creature is what page? Jesus Christ.

It swept England aside in Euro 2000 I seem to recall. Oh no it was Englands most underrated player Phil Neville forgetting what sport he was playing.

Still feeling the after effects of Chilean Chardonnay/England's win.
Starting to get the negative thoughts in my head.
What if Croatia really were totally naff?
What if Rooney's legs fall off?
What if Heskey has a stormer in training on Thursday morning?
Quite happy to stop the tournament now, if you don't mind. Not sure I can manage another Argentina/Germany/Liechtenstein thriller.
PS: Isn't Roo-mania a country already?

I had a strange dream the other night, told Victor from Big Bro that rat joke I've been whoring round and he found it just as funny as everyone else.

Just got up with the best white wine induced hangover ever.

The best England performance since the 5-1 against Germany? No. But they did the job better than they usually do. Cue a Cristiano Ronaldo inspired backlash from Portugal. Rooney was superb though, Gascoigne, Shearer and Owen rolled into one.
COME ON ENGLAND!
By the way, white wine and peanut M & M's do NOT mix. But I presume they give you very strange dreams.

Apparently Tommy le Dickfingres has to be invited by you again to "lose ma blog cherry" as he so eloquently put it. So if you don't mind.

Yeah, but I can remember actually watching it. I was about 8 or 9 I think. I remember thinking, "Oh look, there's Dickfingers."

Had enough of Lawrenson. Pressed the red button and listened to the Radio 5 commentary instead.
After ten minutes of thinking, Jonathan Pearce came up with the same Juliet Bravo gag! Great minds think alike, I'm sure you'll agree.
Anyhow, the the last half hour with Alan Green. Pure drama, probably the best commentator at the moment.

Villain of the Day: Mark Lawrenson, for his truly diabolical "Raul Bravo? He's playing more like Juliet Bravo!"
I bet even Liverpool fans hate this man. I know I do.

Well, you see, Keith bears (I crack meself up sometimes...bears.....hahahah) a striking resemblance to Teddy Ruxpin....read more here.
Make sure you check out the theme tune......its fantastic!! Straight off the White Album that is.
Watch this Blog for a rapid Harold Bishop response....I look nothing like him. Honest.
