      MYGNRFORUM Theme Template Update - Additional Features   09/09/2017

      Happy to announce that the upgrades have almost been completed and the new custom theme is available for all users. There are still a few bugs to work out which we hope to have solved over the next day or two.   To use the new template, click on Themes at the bottom left side of the page and click on MYGNRFORUM (New): It is now set to default in case you did not previously changed themes. A new feature of this update are the new reactions to posts.  By click on the like button, users have a choice of five different reactions (two of our own design): Remember, if you GNR like something, make it a dolphin like! Please use the Ask Staff Anything thread with any questions or concerns. Thanks to everyone for your patience and cooperation over the last couple of weeks while we got this done.

  1. If longevity of office is the be-all-and-end-all, sirs, ladies and gentlemen, let me present Dizzy Reed.
  2. It is a fairly generic riff in fairness.
  3. General Chat / Random Musings

    I remember having a conversation with American ladies in Barcelona. ''We are going to visit it Stig' ess tomorow. (short i, hard g - said like Stig of the Dump in fact). ''I beg your pardon?'' I replied. ''Stig' ess'' she repeated. It took me about to minute to realise they meant Stiges, Catalan resort famed for its film festival and carnival.
  4. What's up with all the pop up ads on mygnr now ?

    Just install a pop up blocker. I did get an advert for locally based MILFS the other day.

    The Ashes in simplified terms is the bilateral competition which is contested whenever England and Australia play cricket - they play to regain/defend the Ashes which is a little urn (I'll not bore you with the history). Perhaps the biggest rivalry in sporting history, it has been contested since 1882. How do Yanks say it? His real name was Gaius Plinius. English people usually pronounce it just how it is written, rather like plinth.

    I'm listening to the Women's Ashes which is Australian time.

    - This is Spinal Tap
  8. We need a cricket thread here

    Some including Don Bradman and Ritchie Benaud regard England's Frank 'Typhoon' Tyson as the fastest bowler to have ever played the game, faster, according to them, than Larwood, Jeff Thompson, the Windies pace quartet or Akhtar,
  9. US Politics/Elections Thread

    I do not believe in the 'special relationship'. I've never seen Anglo-American relations as anything but a business like agreement where mutual interests coincide and not some romantic notion based on ties of kinship or language. The United Kingdom was paying off her Second World War lend-lease debt until as recently as 2006 for instance. When the United States lent Britain fifty mothballed destroyers in 1940, America did so in exchange for British territorial concessions in the Caribbean.

    Lillee would bowl fuller length also. They restricted the bouncers to two per over when the West Indies were destroying everyone. This was brutal by Roberts,
  11. We need a cricket thread here

    Yes. I'm not sure if he was caught also as the ball pings off outside the screen. But Lillee is bowling so well there that he makes Viv look like his bunny. Absolutely terrifying spell. That is Western Australia v Queensland by the way.
  12. We need a cricket thread here

    It has improved the last two or so years. On an unrelated note here is Dennis Lillee v Viv Richards,
  13. We need a cricket thread here

    The Women's Ashes starts tonight, 12ish, BT Sport 1. That is if they get any play as it has been pouring in Brisbane. The women use a multi-format system,
  14. Blade Runner 2049

    It is a masterpiece - fair enough about Star Wars being cack. It is metaphysical. Like most of Philip K. Dick's stuff it is about being, existence and unreliable narratives. It is a dark ambiguous film - I love ambiguous films. Ridley Scott didn't make a decent film again. In fact neither did Harrison Ford come to think about it.
  15. Blade Runner 2049

    I love the original. A masterpiece. Choked by Darryl Hannah's thighs - I can think of worse ways to go.
