Sure it's not swallows? You can detect a South African accent.

Yes lol...Swallows
Could be Housemartins. We have a nest on our house and have done for years. They are protected so would doubt that your phase of construction is relevant.

Permission to ask a tv question on the basketball thread? Anyone seen Snowpiercer and is it worth a watch?

Watch the movie. It's brilliant.

Don't watch the TV show. It's shite.
Ach balls I thought when I got the reminder from Netflix it was for the movie by Director Bong. Aye I'll seek out the movie.

Trying to convince my young lad who is 6 to take off the stabilisers on his bike but he is very nervous about me doing it.
Any tips on getting him riding without them?
I think with our I just held onto the saddle for a while to reassure whilst they peddle away. Eventually they'll peddle away without knowing you've let go of the saddle. There might be the odd spill but if you can get him back at it not falling is a good incentive to learn.
Have been out with him the last few days doing this and he took off today without me holding on. Great feeling seeing him do it. Cycling around now no bother.
Obviously now I'm gonna take all the credit as the wife was telling me not to take off the stabilisers just yet....she won't hear the end of it  ;)
Excellent stuff. It's always a great milestone for a child.

Iíve a few mates who are basketball fanatics! Our club had a very successful team back in The day. Few international players, games would have been played in Andytown leisure centre for the games..
I remember that. How did it come about?

John Kennedy (rip) was the big motivator in that, the McGourtys and Gribbies and big PJ were big players
There is a Belfast fella in work called John Kennedy who's big into his basketball. Wonder if any relation.

My choice - Whiplash

I avoided that movie for years because I thought there's no way that's going to be good, I mean Drumming ffs
One of a few films I've watched many times. Class.

Times have fair changed lads!!!
Indeed. The missus has now taken up gardening beyond her usual "you'd need to get the grass cut" or "you missed a bit when you were strimming". To be fair the place has never looked tidier.

Watched first episode of Normal People last night and it's actually okay although not much happened. I know the main actor has kicked a bit of ball but where did the goalkeeper from? There is no way he plays as he'd have been off his line trying to decapitate yer man when he was bearing down on the goal.

The poor lad was hacked.
Aye him and every other p***k who sends this stuff. You have to wonder what they are thinking and how it could possibly end well. However when your actual name is at the top of the message and lots of identifying data in your profile you have to question was he hacked or is he just incredibly thick.

There's talk that they will inflate the grades of good schools to maintain their status. Madness.
What do you mean? Who will inflate them? Why would they need to?

Because fear DEIS schools will grade higher so the posh schools want to maintain their superiority.
Round Armagh it's not the posh schools likely to inflate the grades. Precedent there.
