    Swansea to Gloucester a great day out following the River Severn and my friend Stephen in hot pursuit. In June 1941 RAF Fairwood common was declared operational as a day and night fighter station. in spring 1949 the station was decommissioned and officially opened as Swansea airport on the 1st of June 1957.

    The term “The Emerald Isle” is synonymous with Ireland and its rolling hills and vales of green – at least forty shades, or so the famous Johnny Cash song goes. But how did Ireland come to be known as the Emerald Isle? Ireland’s resplendent greenery certainly had a lot to do with it, but there's more to the story and it starts with one rather interesting man. The first time the words ever appeared in print in reference to Ireland was in a poem by Belfast-born William Drennan, titled “When Erin First Rose.”
  3. Advice requested for interim graphics card upgrade

    Hi again Adrian, I only use home made photo scenery and no other add-ons and I am more than happy with P3D v 4 which performs better than FSX and FSX Steam.
  4. Advice requested for interim graphics card upgrade

    Hi Adrian, If this is any help. I'm using P3D v 4 on my "old computer" and it runs perfectly OK at 60 FPS. Its only a 2 core Pentium 3.2 GHz, 16 GB of RAM and the graphics card Nvidia GTX 960 with Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

    Funny you mention that Chris as I did think about that, yes I know I'm putting my head on the block. I'm no expert but don't mind doing "simple" airfields not complex airports. If you have anything in mind run it past me and I will take a look?

  22. Ordering Pizza - Is this in our 'not too distant' future? Hello! Is this Gordon's Pizza? No sir - it's Google Pizza. I must have dialed a wrong number. Sorry. No sir - Google bought Gordon's Pizza last month. OK. I would like to order a pizza. Do you want your usual, sir? My usual - you know me? According to our caller ID data sheet, the last 12 times you called you ordered an extra-large pizza with three cheeses - sausage - pepperoni - mushrooms and meat balls on a thick crust. OK - that's what I want . May I suggest that this time you order a pizza with ricotta - arugula - sun-dried tomatoes and olives on a whole wheat, gluten free, thin crust? What? I detest vegetables. Your cholesterol is not good, sir. How the hell do you know? Well, we cross-referenced your home phone number with your medical records. We have the result of your blood tests for the last 7 years. Okay, but I do not want your rotten vegetable pizza! I already take medication for my cholesterol. Excuse me sir, but you have not taken your medication regularly. According to our database, you only purchased a box of 30 cholesterol tablets once, at Drugsale Network, 4 months ago. I bought more from another drugstore. That doesn't show on your credit card statement. I paid in cash. But you did not withdraw enough cash according to your bank statement. I have other sources of cash. That doesn't show on your last tax return unless you bought them using an undeclared income source, which is against the law. WHAT THE HELL? ! ! ! ! I'm sorry, sir, we use such information only with the sole intention of helping you. Enough already! I'm sick to death of Google - Facebook - Twitter - WhatsApp and all the others!! I'm going to an island without internet - cable TV - where there is no cell phone service and no one to watch me or spy on me !! I understand sir - but you need to renew your passport first. It expired 6 weeks ago!!
