Thread: BMFA numbers. Is this true, or a gross exaggeration?
13/11/2019 09:47:32

our hobby as well as the rest of the world is changing as we speak.....the youngins now aren't bothered about buying some balsa wood and making a model aircraft....if you want them in the hobby they want instant today/fly tomorrow...never mind all the stuff in between.

so what's the solution?...who knows. I think that the hobby will keep going but not in the way that we imagine, I think it will always be middle aged lads with a sprinkling of youngins.on the TV recently there was a programme about model railways-I didn't see many kids on there. The kids all want to be sitting in their caves with the latest electronic gear,not glue and bits of wood,i have 6 grandchildren and they are done for if you take their gear off them...and they all live in their rooms.... coming out for food,and cant wait to get back, one asked me "what time you going?"..when I asked why...he said "so I can go back in my room to play on my PS4"!!!

different times nower days...hopefully it'll change but not back over to what it was....

Thread: Gas engineers
06/11/2019 09:50:45

I'm an ex British gas lad(30)years...… the gas regs are very strict and only a qualified person is allowed to remove the cover from an appliance to carry out service work......if you don't know what you're doing, leave to the people who do,times gone by there were numerous accidents by DIY jobs getting done on peoples property.

Thread: 50 years ago

in our previous house that was built circa 1900,we decided to upgrade it all.In one of the panels in the living room we found a fully clothed skeleton, which we reported to the police, who called and removed it for investigation.

after a couple of months passed we received a phone call telling us the skeleton had been identified as the "1957 northern Ireland world hide and seek champion"
