The Road To St Helens...
Started by: jarvo (27363)  Report abuse
Always a pleasure, going by Windy Arbour and down into sleepy Billinge. And then crossing the East Lancs and into town.

I like St Helens. And the locals make you welcome.

'Awrdight Cock?'

Peter and I went to St. Helens on the bus a few weeks ago. We go on the 320 which goes through Platt Bridge, Ashton and Haydock, as we live in Abram. However, we had just missed a 320 on the way back and caught the bus that goes through Billinge and Orrell just for a change, and it was a lovely journey, then caught the bus back to Abram from the bus station.

I agree Irene. Billinge, Upholland and Orrell are nice places.

Spot on jathbee.

I was born in upholland.

Summer school holidays at elmers green and ashurst beacon with our gang.

Bottle of water and a jam butty.

Happy days .

Especially where the water park is in Orrell.

Posted by: jathbee (7998) Report abuse
Yes grimshaw. The ubiquitous bottle of water and jam butties. The staple diet for kids on days out during school holiday.

Posted by: jarvo (27363)  Report abuse
Not one mention of St Helens itself.

You bigoted Wigginers will never change.

Go to the store Helen's website...

Posted by: irene (2566)  Report abuse
I mentioned it, Jarvo, even though I only said we went there, but we wouldn't have gone if we didn't like it.

Posted by: PeterP (5864) Report abuse
St Helens is more wheelchair friendly than Wigan, only slopes to manage are the Hardshaw entrance and the ramp in Marks & Spencers. If we cannot find a disabled bay to park up it is still cheaper than Wigan for parking fees

Posted by: antar (697) Report abuse
free parking at weekends in st helens

Not a bad place is St. Helen. Shopping half decent. It's a mining town, my husband worked there, at Bold,for 18 years Gave him a good living and an excellent pension. When it closed he moved to Sutton Manor, another St.Helen mine. Although a lot of St.Helen's people were employed by Pilkington's. I met a lot of St. Helen's folk during the 'Miners Strike' and they were great people. Not often I agree with you jarvis but on this occasion I will concede.

Posted by: graneyjoseph (4544)   Report abuse
jathbee I worked at bold uptil 1986 happy days.

Posted by: jarvo (27363)  Report abuse
At last.

Things are looking up.

Posted by: jathbee (7998) Report abuse
Graneyjoseph. My husband worked there until it's closure, after the strike, he has many good memories. He still goes to the miners reunions at Liegh Miners..

Jarvis I have nothing to say to you regarding the miners .

Posted by: jarvo (27363)  Report abuse
I am not interested in the miners. They've had their day, and their pay, which they are welcome to.

Engineering continues to move with the times.

I ain't ready for the knackers yard yet...Thank God.

And still enjoying life to the full, jarvis. I doubt you will ever your enjoy your retirement, work till ya' drop. And why would a man with a, so called, serious heart condition want to do that?

You never know your luck, he may yet meet his nemesis.😂 And like the last time, shake in his shoes 😂😂😂

Edited...And I saw the original...and double vitriol...

You're clearly very bitter after the demise of the miners, but that isn't my problem, and, never has been.

My condition isn't serious enough to stop me working, and I'd NEVER claim benefit. Claiming isn't my forte. Unlike some...

Posted by: kathpressey (4076)  Report abuse
never say never jarvo. None of know what the future holds.

Posted by: jathbee (7998) Report abuse
You are a liar Jarvis, I edited to add not remove. If you are suggesting that I have claimed benefits then you are wrong. We have both worked until retirement. My husband didn't retire when the mines closed, he had two other jobs before retirement. A very handsome redundancy pay out and an even more handsome lump sum at retirement and a very good pension plus my pension gives us a very good standard of living. All thanks to the very good miners union. Try taking your pension and give a younger person a chance of a job instead of hanging on fo it. That way at it will be one less for you to condemn for not working. You do realise you are job blocking

As for you would never claim benefits. A relative of mine has suffered a stroke at the age of 55, worked all his life in the building industry, can never do his job again. His entire life and livelihood has changed completely. As Kathpressy says. "You never know what the future holds".

You are completely without understanding or empathy for your fellow human beings.

Jathbee.

tremendous stuff .

Well thought out and not least eloquent .

Posted by: PeterP (5864) Report abuse
Jarvo I hope you have a long and prosperous life and when the time comes to retire I also hope you enjoy that. But if something happened to cause ill health and you had to claim benefit no way would you turn it down. I worked for 45yrs and paid into the system during this time and through no fault of my better half she had a major stroke and could not go back to work(which she had done on and off for over 40yrs)We claim benefits but have paid our dues not like some

No, Jarvis has lied AGAIN.

Posted by: broady (12177)   Report abuse
Presumably if the brush operative has an accident in his car he won't claim on the Insurance!! Of course he will and that is exactly the same as the benefits system. You pay your premiums so that if anything happens and you need recourse to them you take them. Only an idiot would pay the premiums and not make a claim when something unexpected happens.

Save your breath lekky!

If Jarvis said the moon was made of cheese that gobbin would back him to the hilt!

It must be strange being eighty-odd years old...

It must be even stranger being strange.

Posted by: jathbee (7998) Report abuse
What on earth are you on about, jarvis?

Posted by: jathbee (7998) Report abuse
Leccy. I think jarvis has shown time and again that he has difficulty with the truth. And I'm afraid his subservient, grovelling pal is a tad gullible too, among his many other failings.

Posted by: basil brush (8740) Report abuse
She backtracked before.

Pity Lisa doesn't have much to say about the tics

Posted by: Pennywise (361) Report abuse
And a pity you only seem to appear to try and cause an argument?

Posted by: lisalee (11917)   Report abuse
It's not worth a rise PW

Posted by: basil brush (8740) Report abuse
Just surprised really that a "tics fan" has jot had much to say about what's happening at the club.

As for trying to cause an argument you should look closer to home for that.pw.

Posted by: lisalee (11917)   Report abuse
Nope

Posted by: jathbee (7998) Report abuse
Walshy. Take your sniping and stirring about the tics onto the sports section where it belongs. There's a good little fox.

Every post on here you make seems to be confrontational or provocative. Why?

Posted by: lectriclegs (2677) Report abuse
Because he likes the attention,Penny.

Sad, I know but true.

I'd love to stay optimistic but I've been ready for relegation since before Christmas.

To be honest I'll take it if they go down fighting!

League 1 wasn't so bad. Had some good away days!

Not much of a comment from a dedicated supporter, just my opinion.




Still posting with no gang behind you leccy ,who'd a thowt.

Posted by: Pennywise (361) Report abuse
Is there a way to hide basil's posts? It really does sour the experience on here.

Posted by: lectriclegs (2677) Report abuse
Put him on ignore.

Posted by: lisalee (11917)   Report abuse
Indeed leccy

Said my piece on the sports board, where it should be discussed, earlier and if anyone would like to continue the conversation further I can be found in the south stand on home match days or they might catch me at St James Park a week Saturday for Newcastle away.

Not listening to it ont wireless

Posted by: Pennywise (361) Report abuse
Can you tell me how please, lectriclegs?

Posted by: basil brush (8740) Report abuse
I wish all the nasty ones, who go around in a pack, would put me on ignore

Thought someone like you would have had a lot more to say about the club you support, just my opinion.

Posted by: lectriclegs (2677) Report abuse
Click on his name above his post.

And on his profile you will see 'ignore this user.

Click on it and his comments won't show.

Posted by: Pennywise (361) Report abuse
Thank you.

PW,
Best thing I ever did. Haven't read a single one of his posts in weeks. No doubt he will reply to this as I don't think he knows what ignore entails.

Posted by: basil brush (8740) Report abuse
your right, it is, much better than having boredy following me around, I don't know why he doesn't beg to go back on to tuther site, the one he got banned from

Posted by: Pennywise (361) Report abuse
I must say, broady, it cuts the page loading time down a treat.

Posted by: lectriclegs (2677) Report abuse
I don't have him on ignore, for the simple reason I like to see him keep embarrassing himself.
