There there.

Loosely - Instead of making childish remarks what were you doing ten years ago tomorrow out of interest, around 2.00pm, when the planes hit their targets in New York and Washington

 

I was in Cisco's HQ near Heathrow and watched it unfold on a huge 6ft x 8ft screen.

 

Cisco being a US company, I was surrounded by loads of Americans who were dumbstruck. When the 2nd plane struck live on TV, you should have heard the screams. I still hear them.

I was sympathising with Rent Boy Cliffy - who made you Forum Milk Monitor?

 

Can't tell you what I was doing. What were you doing Cliffy? Defending the realm from the front line of your stationery cupboard?

Got a phone call at work, and in my office we all switched our computers over to the live BBC News.

 

I finished work early, and met the wife in Dorking town, and went for a drink in our local. They have two TV's on in the bar, usually CNN or SKY news during the day.

 

We were there when the towers came down.

 

I have NEVER heard that pub so quiet !!!!

Loosely - What a silly reply, why can't you just disclose where you were and what you were doing around 2.00pm on 11 September 2001 as Eastside Urchin, Big JR and Hookey have done

Sorry you don't like it Cliffy but then you don't like much so no loss there. Official Secrets, you do know what those are and you have signed them haven't you? Must come in handy when straightening those paper clips and "defending the Realm".........

Ian – With respect, why is there a rule for your members where virtually anything goes and a separate undemocratic rule for me, what’s so ‘taboo’ about the subject I posted about yesterday

It is the right of any member not to have their personal life posted on the fourms. Sorry if you do not accept this.

 

If you wish to discus this PM me, this is not open to further discussion here.

The 19 December marks the 14th wedding anniversary of William Hague and his lovely wife Ffion Llywelyn Jenkins, who said it wouldn't last. Also on this day in 1984 Margaret Thatcher signed the Joint Sino-British Declaration with China, transferring Hong Kong from a British colony to Communist China in 1997 following 155 years of British rule. Birthday's today include former Wimbledon tennis champion Stan Smith, singer Limahl (Kajagoogoo fame) and, wait for it, iconic Flashdance star Jennifer Beals.

Some birthday's today folks (20 December) include Uri Gella, Jenny Agutter who seems to have been around forever, Billy Bragg and Ashley Cole, I wonder what Cheryl bought him. Today also marks the worst peacetime sea disaster in 1987 when a passenger ferry sank after colliding with an oil tanker in the Tablas Strait in the Philippines killing an estimated 4,000 people.
